When a life is being taken away, no matter for whatever reason, I cannot help but feel sad.
I am not going to dwell into the process of law. Looking to the future I feel that an opportunity for reconciliation during this divisive period of Iraqi history has been lost. The Muslims are the easiest of people to sell this idea of reconciliation and forgiveness to. Unfortunately a different agenda is being pursued. Divided Iraq? Iraq will continue to be divided.
The only unifying factor for Iraqis is the mission to drive the Americans away. Bad news for the US.
It reminds me of a passage I read about Muhammad the prophet of Islam
At the conquest of Mecca, the city that persecuted him and the early followers of Islam, Muhammad declared, “this day there is no reproof against you and you are free. This day , I trample under my feet all distinctions between man and man, all hatred between man and man”
