The Curse of the Jew

The Big Pharaoh responds to the latest Sunni attack on a Shia market in Baghdad:
. . . What makes me so angry is the fact that the Arab/Muslim world have no time to think about the mass murderers it's pumping out everyday, it's busy rioting over cartoons 4 months after they were published, busy complaining about "Islamophobia" in the West.
Whenever a Muslim blows up himself to kill hundreds of other Muslims I always tend to call that "the curse of the Jew". We allowed and justified suicide bombings against innocent Israelis in cafes and malls. We religiously sanctioned the actions of every Palestinian suicide bomber who killed and maimed Israelis. Now it seems the suicide bombers are killing far more Muslims than Jews.
The deafening silence of the Arab/Muslim world towards the mass slaughters in Iraq indicate one thing: this region will stay in the abyss of darkness, ignorance, and backwardness for a very long time until someone really rises up, takes it by the neck, and forces it to look in a mirror and see the ugly reflection.

From the BBC site. Yesterday attack on the Sadriyah market in Baghdad.
In one of the deadliest attacks of the last four years, some 140 people were killed in a car bombing in a food market in Sadriya district.
A witness said the area had been turned into "a swimming pool of blood".
I started using images after becoming convinced that people fail to grasp the scale of attacks launched by the Sunni insurgents against Shia civilian population in Baghdad and elsewhere in Iraq, despite my attempts to give my readers an adequate perspective on the scale of this insurgency, like, for example, this one:
The destruction left behind by a truck loaded with 500 kilos of explosives can make a whole street look as if hit by hurricane Catarina. Yet truck bombs have been intercepted carrying even more more powerful payloads than this. One of such trucks intercepted recently was reported to be loaded with 2 tons (!!!) of explosives and an unspecified amount of chlorine. In comparison the average payload of a ballistic missile is about 500 kilos.
This means that one truck bomb attack equals or comes close to the impact produced by one ballistic missile, and in this sense Baghdad is a city that is hit by a few ballistic missiles almost daily. Yet even more devastating than the physical impact of the attacks is their toll in psychological terms and in this regard most people in Baghdad probably went total psychos long time ago. There is no warning or sirens going on before, in a split second, one finds oneself scattered over a wide area covering a few neighborhoods.

The IHT says the Sadriya market was devastated by a truck bomb loaded with one ton of explosives:
The attack was the work of a suicide bomber who detonated about ton of explosives in the bustling Sadriya market, in a largely Shiite enclave, as shoppers finished buying food for dinner and men sipped coffee at the popular cafes nearby, the police said . . .
. . .
The bomber struck close to the middle of the narrow market, which stretches for about an eighth of a mile, killing everyone nearby and dozens more in collapsed apartment buildings and coffeehouses that line the market, witnesses said.
"Look at all these buildings," shouted Qadir Ali Ismael, a 41-year-old vegetable seller who escaped the 5 p.m. blast. "There were families living in these apartments and they didn't find anyone alive in there. All of those people were killed!"
Two buildings were flattened and 10 more seriously damaged. The attack left a crater 15 feet long, 10 feet wide and 5 feet deep. Blast waves left buildings a block away badly damaged.
At a hospital morgue in Sadr City, an Iraqi mourned yesterday over the coffin of his brother, who was killed by a car bomb in Sadriya.

Faithful to a long established tradition Palestinians in Gaza were celebrating the latest suicide attack with flowers and pastries. The double suicide attack on a shopping center in Dimona was no great success by any standard as the second kamikadze had been shot dead before he was able to detonate his explosives. An elderly woman was killed and her husband critically injured, another dozen of people were wounded but otherwise it was a minor attack in terms of casualties. All photos by Reuters.

I doubt there can be a better proof of the mess the Arab world has made of itself...
