End of silence.
Pray4Iraq is ending the silent protest against the gridlocked political system in Iraq to urge for Patience and peace in Iraq after the bombings today in Sammara.
Details are still hazy, however it seems that there have been revenge attacks on 29 sunni mosques, with Moqtada Sadrs militia men swarming baghdads streets to protest the bombs. There have been reports of clashes, and Tarek al Hashimi has threatened revenge for the initial revenge attacks.
Iraqis must stay calm and understand that there is no evidence that such an attack was caused by the sunnis. They must also understand the implications of a civil war. if they rise to the bait, this could lead to a one of the darkest periods of human history. A civil war in Iraq would pit sunni arab vs shia arab. this could lead to the regional powers getting involved (Saudi vs. Iran) and evetually draq in an increasingly energy hungry China against the USA.
Shia of Iraq, the future of the planet could very well lie in our hands. By following the sunnah of the Prophet (pbuh) we must stay calm and not allow anger to cloud our judgement.
