Crap! They're Killing Arabs Again!


That should have been "Arabs are killing Arabs as usual".


At least 51 people were killed and dozens wounded in a series of bombings and attacks across Baghdad on Wednesday, police and medical sources said, extending the worst wave of violence in Iraq in at least five years.  In one of the worst incidents a car bomb killed seven people and wounded 23 in Jisr Diyala in southeastern Baghdad, police and medics said.


ALGERIA, Aug 28 (KUNA) -- Three Algerian army members were killed, while four were injured after a bomb exploded in Beni Milleuk Mountains in Tipaza Province, western Algiers on Wednesday.  Security sources said that the army was combing the mountains connecting Ain Defla Province with Tipaza, after receiving reports of terrorist activities in the area. The sources noted that a terrorist group had planted a mine in the road where Algerian army vehicles where roaming.


The Arabic Network for Human Rights Information (ANHRI) condemns the continuing targeting of the media and press in Libya by the armed groups and using the violence in oder to terrorize and to muzzle their voices. This comes after unidentified assailants stormed the headquarter of Libya Aljadidah newspaper in Tripoli.

On Friday night, a number of unidentified assailants stormed the newspaper's headquarter in Tripoli and seized the equipment and contents therein...On Friday (9 August), the journalist Ezz El-Din Koussad was killed by armed men, and also the dissent Abdel Sallam El-Mesmary was shot dead outside his house on July 26.


Tunisia’s Islamist premier Ali Larayedh said Tuesday that Ansar al-Sharia was behind the assassinations of secular opposition leaders Chokri Belaid and Mohamed Brahmi and said the group will now be classified as a terrorist organisation.
...Ansar al-Sharia is the most radical Islamist group to emerge in Tunisia since secular autocrat Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali was toppled in 2011. Its attacks have posed a challenge to the authority of the moderate Islamist-led government...
 Anybody for "peace negotiations"?

 And don't forget this:

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Palestinian security forces [???] killed a man in a Nablus-area refugee camp [???] late Tuesday, officials and witnesses said.  Amjad Odeh, 37, died in what Palestinian officials described as an exchange of fire between the security forces and a wanted man in Askar refugee camp...Witnesses told Ma’an that dozens of Palestinians attacked security forces with rocks after the incident.

Wait, doesn' that seem like what happened in Qalandiya the other day?

So, are they going to stop the conciliation talks between Fatah and Hamas?

If the USA is the world's cop, why is there never a Kerry around when you need one?
