In response to the Sign of the Times post, a faithful reader sent me the image below. Sadly, although it as a bit hyperbolic, it conveys much truth. I might run the risk on making it on to some jihadist's list for fatwā, but being an insignificant commentator, I am not too concerned. Nearly every day I read of atrocities carried out in the name of Islam - Sunnis killing Shiites, Shiites killing Sunnis, Muslims killing Christians [and of course vice versa], and the most outrageous, Boko Haram ["Western Education is Sin"] kidnapping girls, slaughtering villagers, and so on. As long as there are radical fundamentalists, regardless of the religion, there will not be any coexistence. The current chaos in Iraq should give the US some food for thought the next time Washington decides to invade some country in order to 'make things better'. We can see that killing Saddam really made Iraq the poster-country for US intervention.
