Iraq, The Hopeless Land!

There is an old Iraq folk tale about an Appointment in Samarra. According to this tale, a servant was in the marketplace and saw Death. He rushed home to tell his master about Death. The master became frightened, packed his bags and fled to the city of Samarra. The loyal servant returned to the marketplace and berated Death for frightening his master. Death apologized and said: “Sorry, I was just passing through on my way to Samarra.” Political leaders in Iraq simply want to destroy their society. For the past four years under control of former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, the Shiite majority has imposed a system of terror upon minority Sunnis. This led them to join terror groups like the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq(ISIS). Maliki is gone, and there was hope a new coalition government might united the people of Iraq against terrorists.

That was the hope, but there is always reality in Iraq. Shiites gunmen in approached the Murab in Omair mosque in which Sunni MUSLIMS were praying. They opened up with machine guns and soon 70 people were dead with dozens wounded. Another victory for–ISIS! An objective outsider is left with feelings of hopelessness. When will Muslims cease murdering Muslims?? As long as Shiite Muslims kill Sunni Muslims, chaos will triumph in their land!
