Syria conflict: Dozens killed near Sayyida Zeinab shrine in Bombing claimed by ISIS

At least 45 people have been killed in three blasts near the Shia shrine of Sayyida Zeinab, south of the Syrian capital Damascus, state media say.

Scores of people were also reported to have been wounded.

The shrine, which is highly revered by Shia Muslims, has been targeted before, most recently in February last year.

    Isn’t it about time Arabs started contributing something to humanity?

      Keep things within the realm of the possible, Billy. In retail terms, Arabs are a “loss leader”. Things won’t change.

      • DavidinNorthBurnaby

        Loss leaders are useful in that they “lead” consumers into one’s premises. Pray tell, what use exactly are the Arabs?

        • Justin St.Denis

          From the political class’s perspective, there’s money (petrodollars) in Arab loss leaders. I thought everyone knew that.

          • DavidinNorthBurnaby

            Good point. I suppose I was thinking in terms of humanity in general’s point of view.
