as salaamu alaikum everyone,

Would anyone have any insight what so ever on what is happening in Iraq?  Over 200 dead already this week from "suicide bombings".  It is getting crazy! 

I just don't understand who is doing this ridiculous killing or why.  My heart is breaking for the people of Iraq.  I can't even imagine how many widows and orphans have been created in the last two years.

Why are Muslims killing Muslims?  Why do so many Muslims seem to think that suicide is alright, or worse, suicide taking others lives with you?  Why aren't other Muslim countries doing anything to help improve the situation there (just as they did nothing to stop Saddam Hussein?)?

I would appreciate any thoughts on this crazy hell called Iraq, I am losing sleep and shedding many tears.  Thank you.

Peace, ummziba.

Those suicide bombings are from the insurgents who do not want a new Iraq, they are trying to control the country instead.

There is even a new hostage crisis happening, with an Australian held as hostage.
