What is your point?? R.D.?
|Wow, the Iraqi people have been asking for consistent food, clean water, electricity and for their children to stop dying from easily cured diseases. Seems to me that this admin. has priorities a little twisted when it comes to fulfilling the requests of the Iraqi people.|
|What do you think the troops are still doing over there? Thats EXACTLY what we are trying to help them with, peace, stability and I-N-F-R-A-S-T-R-U-C-T-U-R-E, so that their society can thrive and grow.|
|Televised images of the bodies of Saddam Hussein’s sons shocked many Arabs, who said Friday that it was un-Islamic to exhibit corpses, however much the brothers were loathed.
“Although Odai and Qusai are criminals, displaying their corpses like this is disgusting and repulsive,” Saudi civil servant Saad Brikan, 42, said in Riyadh. “America claims it is civilized but is behaving like a thug.”
Under Islamic law, this is rejected. America wanted to boost the morale of its soldiers, so it resorted to this illegal act, which is denounced by all religions.
“America said during its war on Iraq that displaying pictures of its soldiers who were alive was against the Geneva Convention, so what about pictures showing disfigured bodies?”

Muslims don't all think the same way, there are over about a billion of us in the world. Islamic law is not as cut and dry as the extremists and sensationalists would like to make it out to be. So some Muslims can feel that it is unislamic while others can argue that it is perfectly ok and not be hypocrites.
|Seems that most Iraqis have no means of expressing themselves whatsoever. At least not yet. I am sure the liklihood is now better because of the invasion BUT, the few Iraqis interviewed by non-american journos have declared that they are still subject to night time raids and searches JUST LIKE WHEN SADDAM WAS AROUND.|
