Iraqi Intolerance of the 'Cross' in Red Cross

Another interesting article on how Muslims are intolerant of even the image of the cross. Even when this cross appears on Red Cross shipments for Iraqis who need these supplies. This occurred in Iraq as International Red Cross workers were seized by Islamic terrorists because they were helping those Iraqis in need with shipments labeled with the picture of the international recognized symbol of the Red Cross. This was posted by Robert Spencer of Dhimmi Watch. For more click here.


For most Westerners this conflict began with the invasion of Iraq in 2003, or maybe they would consider Sept. 2001 the origin of this war. Some might even trace this back to the Gulf War or even the overthrow of the Shah in Iran. Geopolitians might even say this can all be traced back to the Sykes-Picot agreement at the end of World War I that gave the British and French domination of the middle east. Of course for the people who attacked the Redcross it goes back much further. This "war" goes back, past Lepanto, past the Crusades even, for them the Strugle between Christianity and Islam began in the 800s (if not the 600's!) Can a militantly secular society win against religious fundementalists in the long run (Soviet Union vs. Afghans)?
