I love when I come up from air from a study break to see the headline on BBC read ‘Troops storm major Baghdad mosque’. Because, you know, there were bad people inside. Never mind the fact that it’s Friday. There were worshippers inside. Among others, the imam was arrested. The raid was conducted by Iraqi security forces backed by US troops.
Long ago this became a moot point. But let’s just all remind ourselves: this is not a war on Islam.
