Amazing How the Media Notices Now
Well guess what. Halleluiah, after the latest bombing, the media has noticed there are Christians in Iraq. Their previous code of silence was right in line with the public conception of Iraq’s embrace of Islamic fundamentalism feed by the likes of Cheney who errantly continued to draw linkage between Al Qaeda and the old Iraqi regime.
Yes, there are Christians in Iraq. And yes, Saddam's secular government protected them with many being placed high in the Baath party. And yes, Saddam’s secular government was considered a foe of bin Laden’s thugs.
The interesting thing is how when mosques where bombed the outcry was less than now when Christian churches are being bombed.
