Just thought I would post this here, it seems a load of mosques in Tunisia are being shut for spreading hate filled rhetoric. The question I have is why does it take a major mass slaughter before anything is done by the establishment the protect the people? "Tunisia will shut down about 80 mosques accused of inciting violence, Prime Minister Habib Essid has said, after a beach attack that left 39 people dead. The mosques, which operate outside state control, are spreading "venom" and will close within a week, he said. On Friday a gunman opened fire on tourists in the resort town of Sousse. Tunisians, Britons, Germans, Belgians, French and at least one Irish citizen were among those killed in the attack, claimed by Islamic State (IS)." http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-33297245 "The majority of the 38 people killed in the attack on a Tunisian beach resort were British, the country's prime minister Habib Essid has said. An emergency Cobra meeting chaired by the prime minister is due to take place later to look at the UK's response to the attacks." http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-33297440
Tariq Aziz, known as the face of Saddam Hussein's regime on the world stage for many years, has died in an Iraqi prison, officials say. As a Christian in a mainly Sunni Muslim government, he was not considered a member of Saddam Hussein's innermost circle. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-33021771 Interesting story and I felt the need to post it here. It shows how the minority Christians in Iraq did good business with the majority Muslims and were trusted by them. Now I know Sikhs are a minority in india and are also in good positions in government and it seems trusted so perhaps this story shows how dangerous it is to let a foreign power take over. Each country has its own equilibrium and when a foreign invader takes control it can only disturb this equilibrium and usually lead to destruction. Maybe there are parallels here, Sikhs as a minority in India but in good positions of power and Christians in Iraq before the US led invasion. Dunno, I will keep an eye on this, maybe it's nothing. The ultimate question is what was the relationship between Sikhs, Muslims and Hindu's prior to partition and did partition make it worse? And you can blame the British if you like, I won't take it to heart, I want an honest answer.
Found this article in todays paper, I sure hope some of you guys don't get caught in the cross fire of the anti-Islam feeling sweeping across the US: "An anti-Islamic contest to draw the Prophet Mohamed will take place today outside the former mosque of the two men who attempted to ambush a prior event. The event which was described as "peaceful", detailed security as being provided by armed bikers and which encouraged attendees to bring guns, will occur around the same time as the evening’s large prayer." http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/peaceful-contest-to-draw-mohamed-invites-attendees-to-bring-guns-after-prior-event-ambush-10284723.html Scarey stuff. And in the meantime: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/iran-launches-antiisis-cartoon-competition-to-expose-true-nature-of-islamic-state-10275768.html
