Scores killed in twin suicide attack on Iraq wedding

Iraqi security forces cordoned off parts of al Hajaj village, some 20 kilometers (14 miles) north of Tikrit, after twin suicide blasts hit a wedding party late on Wednesday.

Local sources reported two further blasts targeting security forces at the scene shortly afterwards. Clashes between security forces and militants in the area were ongoing in the hours after the attack, sources said.

The attacks were not immediately claimed, although the so-called “Islamic State” (IS) militant group has carried out similar style attacks in recent months. In November, IS conducted bomb attacks in Tikrit and Samarra, apparent diversionary bombings intended to drive back military forces from gaining ground in Mosul, the country’s second largest city and a key IS stronghold.

    This daily loss of life through such circumstances is just another “glorious” feature of living in a Muslim-majority shithole. *yawn*

    But does little Justin and his fellow Islamists Liberal party members really believe Muslims upon entering Canada, legally or illegally, magically adopt democratic values and principles such as pluralism, freedom of speech, women’s rights, a work ethic, etc., and a live-and-let-live attitude in Sunny Ways Canada?

    • Oh yea they absolutely believe that. Justin knows the Aga Khan personally and he’s a real nice Muslim. Therefore all Muslims are the Aga Khan.

        It’s crazy to substitute wishful thinking for pragmatism and reality.

        But the Liberal Party of Canada is increasingly out of touch with average levelheaded Canadians on a whole range of issues, and have indeed elevated ideology above reality. *sigh*

        • Justin is a reflection of our political class’ beliefs, they need a wish dream version of Islam to cover the nagging guilt that they have made a horrid mistake in allowing mass immigration for Muslim states.

        Multiculturalism is our strength sickness. Diversity without Islam, though not without problems, might be workable in Canada in the short- and long-term. Let’s wait and see.
