To instill fear in the neighborhood, Muslims slit the child’s throat. Who was the child? Another Muslim.

So goes the civil war between Muslims in Iraq. Are international troops really expecting to win such a civil war? Were their original intentions to engage in a civil war? Do such civil wars involving Islamics in other parts of the globe ever cease? The answer to these questions is NO.

At Camp Tajil, Iraq, media reports that Iraqi police officers, while on a “routine patrol,” came upon the remains of an 11-year-old male on April 2. His body lay in Sab Al Bor.

Immediately the police suspected him to be a “murder victim on Sudani Street. The child’s throat had been slit.”

Troop B, 1st Squadron, 7th Cavalry Regiment Soldiers assisted the Iraqi police in obtaining initial data.

“A police report of the incident indicated that a local Al Qaeda cell is suspected in the murder which was ‘perpetrated to instill fear in the villagers of Sab Al Bor.’”

With an incident such as that going on daily throughout the nation, is there any wonder that Iraqis want to flee? But where to go?

This is particularly true of Christians there. Most have already left Iraq but find themselves feeling more like gypsies than new residents of a fresh turf.

The news release concerning the slain child concludes with this matter-of-fact detail: “Iraqi security forces have launched an investigation to find those responsible for the murder.”

Yes, not only that murder but another and another and another and another.
