October 5, 2013 73 people killed in Iraq including 2 journalists October 05, 2013 21:45
Attacks across Iraq killed 73 people on Saturday, most of whom died during bombings against Shiite pilgrims in Baghdad. Two journalists were gunned down in a separate incident in Mosul, located in the north of the country. Police officials told AP that at least 49 people died when a suicide bomber targeted Shiite pilgrims passing through the largely Sunni neighborhood of Azamiyah en route to a nearby Shiite shrine. Seventy-five people were reported wounded in the blast. Other attacks across the violence-torn nation claimed 24 lives. The deaths were confirmed by hospital officials. Around the same time the blast targeted Shiite pilgrims, a suicide bomber detonated himself in a café in Balad a largely Shiite town surrounded by Sunni communities, located about 80 kilometers north of Baghdad. The attack claimed 13 lives and left 22 wounded. Three people were also killed and 13 were wounded in the religiously mixed Baghdad neighborhood of Baiyaa after a hidden bomb went off inside a café. No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks, but such bombings are usually carried out by Sunni Islamists allied to Iraq’s branch of Al-Qaeda. In recent months, militants have carried out numerous attacks on cafés and other public places where people congregate, such as mosques and markets. In one of the incidents on Saturday, unidentified gunmen shot dead two Iraq television journalists as they were filming in the northern city of Mosul. Their reports on security forces and officials in Mosul had resulted in death threats from militant groups opposed to the Iraq government, a journalist from Al Sharqiya TV channel told AFP on condition of anonymity. Iraq was rated the deadliest country for journalists between 2003 and 2008. However, the New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists has not reported a murder of a journalist in the country since September 2011. 4,800 people killed in Iraq 2013 Nevertheless, members of the media continue to face widespread intimidation. Reporters Without Borders said earlier this year:
“Many Iraq journalists are routinely exposed to threats, murder attempts, attacks, difficulties obtaining permission, denial of access, confiscation of equipment and so on,”Iraq forces have carried out operations against militants in recent months but have not managed to curb the violence sweeping the county. More than 4,800 people have been killed in Iraq this year according to figures published by AFP, which are based on security and medical sources. Related Stories:
29 killed, incl 12 children in string of suicide bombings in Iraq October 06, 2013
Two Suicide bombers detonated explosives-rigged vehicles at an elementary school and a police station in northern Iraq, killing at least 15 people, 12 of whom were children. 14 more were killed in a suicide attack on Shi’ite pilgrims in Baghdad. Tal Afar mayor Abdel-Aal al-Obeidi says the twin blasts hit the nearby Shi'ite village of Qabak on Sunday morning, the start of the local work week. Tal Afar is 420 kilometers northwest of Baghdad, not far from the Syrian border. A suicide bomber drove a truck packed with explosives into the playground of the elementary school, blowing himself up. Just minutes earlier, a separate suicide bomber targeted a police station. There are conflicting report on the identity of the victims. AFP reports that twelve children and the school's principal were killed in the attack, which caused part of the single-story building to collapse, possibly trapping more people inside. Two officers were also reported killed in the attack on the police station. Reuters, however, says that there were no fatalities in the attack on the police station, while 14 children and their principal died when militants targeted the school. Al-Obeidi said at least 90 more were injured in the dual blasts. No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks, but such bombings are the hallmark of Sunni Islamists allied to Iraq’s branch of Al-Qaeda. The area around the afflicted village, which only has a population of 200, has long been a hotbed for Sunni insurgents and a corridor for extremist fighters arriving from nearby Syria.

At least 30 killed in apparently coordinated Baghdad bomb attacks October 07, 2013
A string of bombs in what appears to be a coordinated attack in Baghdad has killed 30 people. Police sources told Reuters that the blasts were in mainly Shi’ite Muslim areas of the city. However, there was also an explosion in the predominately Sunni Muslim neighborhood of Doura. Police said that there were reports of seven explosions in eight different neighborhoods, adding that the attacks mostly involved car bombs and hit commercial areas in the city. In the deadliest attack, a parked car bomb killed six and wounded 13 on one street alone, police said. Religiously mixed neighborhoods were also targeted. No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attacks, but the vast majority of such bombings are the work Sunni Islamist insurgents often allied to Al-Qaeda who are seeking to destabilize the Shi’ite government and stoke up sectarian conflict. Earlier Al-Qaeda claimed responsibility for a number of rare suicide bombings in the relatively peaceful self-ruled Kurdish region in the north of the country. The situation in Iraq has been inflamed by the fighting in Syria, which has drawn in fighters from both sides of the sectarian divide. More than 6,000 people have been killed already this year, as Iraq slides back to levels of sectarian bloodshed which reached a climax in 2006-2007, while US troops were still stationed in the country. Almost all the attacks have been claimed by Al-Qaeda. Related Stories:

"A well-known former government minister told me that an American official had confirmed that the killings took place, saying to him, 'What a mess we're in we got rid of one son of a bitch only to get another one'." Eli Cara and Uriel Zoshe Kelman in court today. "The man ... described how Allawi had been taken to seven suspects, who were made to stand against a wall in a courtyard of the police station, their faces covered. After being told of their alleged crimes by a police official, Allawi had asked for a pistol, and then shot each prisoner in the head. [One of the men survived.] The explosive claims in tomorrow's 'Sydney Morning Herald' and 'Age' newspapers allege that the prisoners were handcuffed and blindfolded, lined up against a courtyard wall and shot by the Iraq Prime Minister.

Nanci Pelosi U.S. House Democratic leader Congresswoman California, 8th District Speaking at the AIPAC agenda May 26, 2005 There are those who contend that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is all about Israel's occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. This is absolute nonsense. In truth, the history of the conflict is not over occupation, and never has been: it is over the fundamental right of Israel to exist. The greatest threat to Israel's right to exist, with the prospect of devastating violence, now comes from Iran. For too long, leaders of both political parties in the United States have not done nearly enough to confront the Russians and the Chinese, who have supplied Iran as it has plowed ahead with its nuclear and missile technology.... In the words of Isaiah, we will make ourselves to Israel 'as hiding places from the winds and shelters from the tempests; as rivers of water in dry places; as shadows of a great rock in a weary land.'
The United States will stand with Israel now and forever. Now and forever.
