Two Imam's Disagreed With al-Qaeda's Murderous Doctrine, al-Qaeda Murders Them
BAQUBA, Iraq — Two Sunni Arab imams were brutally killed on Monday in Iraq, including one who was decapitated and had his head planted on a power pole, in attacks blamed on Al-Qaeda, military officials said.But isn't that al-Qaeda's answer to everything murder in the name of Allah? Its as if Allah was some helpless deity kept inside a giant cube or something?
The slayings in the province of Diyala, northeast of Baghdad, were against anti-Qaeda preachers who regularly railed against the terror network during Friday sermons.
"At around 2:00 pm (1100 GMT), armed Al-Qaeda members captured Sheikh Abdullah Shakur while he was in Saadiyah market," said a Diyala military command officer who declined to be identified, referring to the central town.
"They returned an hour later with his head and attached it to an electricity post."
Shakur, imam of Saadiyah's mosque, had received several death threats from Al-Qaeda, who had demanded that he leave the town, which is home to large Sunni, Shiite and Kurd populations.
I can't tell you the number of times I've read al-Qaeda supporters talking about the incredible debates and diversity within Islam. Well apparently for their heroes there is only one acceptable version of Islam. It the one where you lick al-Qaeda's boots or die.
