Thrown into a panic by shouts that a suicide bomber was in their midst, thousands of Shiite pilgrims in a procession across a Baghdad bridge suddenly stampeded Wednesday, killing about 950 people, many of whom plunged to their deaths in the Tigris River.
Most of the dead were women, children and the elderly, Iraqi officials said.
Who can now continue to say that terrorists have justified grievances? Is this anti-americanism? Is this a reaction to the “invasion” of Iraq? Or it is the revenge for past offenses? Or maybe they killed a thousand muslims in support of a free Jerusalem?
The truth is that the whahabites are murderous bastards, that have killed other muslims and anyone who disagrees with their medieval vision of the world for centuries, and will continue to do so. It just happened that a smart amoral guy – Bin Laden – realized this and decided to channel this murderous instinct for his own purposes, viz. establish an imperial caliphate with himself at the top.
So please, stop bothering me with relativism and politically correct “the terrorists are the real victims” crap.
