    Iraq - Baghdad Car bombs target shopping districts, 126 dead

    Iraq's capital was once again the scene of bloody carnage this weekend, with two separate car bombs killing at least 126 people.

    The first detonation occurred Saturday on a busy shopping street in the central Baghdad neighborhood of Karrada, killing 125 people -- including 25 children -- and wounding 147 others, police said.
    Firefighting crews pulled injured and trapped people from adjacent buildings damaged in the massive blast, including a coffee shop, stores and a gym.

    Nearly 120 people were killed and 200 wounded in two bombings overnight in Baghdad, most of them in a busy shopping area as residents celebrated Ramadan, police and medical sources said on Sunday.

    [...]

    Reuters TV footage taken in the morning showed at least four buildings severely damaged or partly collapsed, including a shopping mall believed to be the target, and gutted cars scattered all around.


    The toll climbed during the day as rescuers pulled out more bodies from under the rubble and people succumbed from their injuries.

    For the third time in a week terrorists carried out a mass slaughter of civilians - with ISIS claiming responsibility for each attack.


    The deadliest terror attack killed 125 people, including 25 children, Saturday evening in a busy shopping district in Baghdad.

    A refrigerator truck packed with explosives blew up in the central district of Karrada, killing 115 people and injuring at least 200. Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement circulated online by supporters of the ultra-hard line Sunni group. It said the blast was a suicide bombing.

    ISIS' Ramadan terror campaign

    the 27th day of Ramadan, the "Night of Power," which is a particularly sacred day for the world's Muslims as it was the time that the Prophet Mohammed started receiving the first verses of the Koran

    This year, the 27th day of Ramadan fell on July 2. This is the same day that the ISIS attackers in Bangladesh completed their massacre at the restaurant in Dhaka. The militants were all killed by Bengali forces.

    ethal terrorist attacks in Bangladesh, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Yemen, and also, very likely, in Turkey.

    did not know other day was
    the most lethal terrorist attack ever at an airport.

    CBS 40 min ago guy arrested in AZ "on govt buildings "

    This year, the 27th day of Ramadan fell on July 2. This is the same day that the ISIS attackers in Bangladesh completed their massacre at the restaurant in Dhaka. The militants were all killed by Bengali forces.
    time zones i guess : The 27th day of Ramadan is also the same day that ISIS launched the attack that killed at least 125 in Baghdad.

    Turkey has also allowed the United States to fly bombing missions aimed at ISIS from airports on Turkish soil.

    battlefield losses may serve to accelerate ISIS-directed and -inspired attacks outside of Iraq and Syria.

    Which sect is larger, and where is each concentrated?

    More than 85 percent of the world’s 1.5 billion Muslims are Sunni. They live across the Arab world, as well as in countries like Turkey, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Malaysia and Indonesia. Iran, Iraq and Bahrain are largely Shiite. The Saudi royal family, which practices an austere and conservative strand of Sunni Islam known as Wahhabism, controls Islam’s holiest shrines, Mecca and Medina. Karbala, Kufa and Najaf in Iraq are revered shrines for the Shiites.

    In a way, it's like Catholics and Protestants in Ireland and Northern Ireland. At any rate, when there are attacks between the two, as in what are called 'The Troubles' in Northern Ireland, it's interesting to note that nobody blames Christianity in general.

    I'm still working on Greek Orthodox vs. Eastern Orthodox vs. Russian Orthodox vs. Ukrainian Orthodox.

    Into the mix, add Serbian Orthodox, Coptic Orthodox, and a slew of others. Mind you, they're all pretty 'Netflix/websleuths and chill' with each other. Though they do have some differences in rituals (e.g., the Serbs stand up throughout their services.). (Eastern Orthodox is a catch-all expression for all of them, so far as I'm aware.)

    And the earlier wars for religious supremacy in Europe.

    Une foi, une loi, un roi.

    Seems appropriate in the context of this holiday weekend to give a nod of appreciation to the learned men of enlightenment who saw the wisdom in separating une loi from une foi.

    No one blames Islam in general, either. Just blame the ones who are involved in the attacks (every step) that have perverted a religion for their own twisted purposes.
