Iraqis Protesting against Terrorism

Here is a piece of news you didn't read in any newspaper or see on any News Channel: Thousends of Iraqis protesting against- Not the US, not the election, but rather- Terrorism. Yeah, I know! And the worst part? This happend 13 days ago and not a whisper of it anywhere: An incredibly important event took place recently in Hillah, Iraq. Just one day after terrorists detonated a massive car bomb, killing at least 125 Iraqis who were lined up to take physicals in an effort to gain employment with the local police force, thousands of Hillah residents took to the streets in protest. They weren’t protesting against the “American occupation” and they weren’t protesting against the “aggression of the West.” They weren’t protesting the treatment of terrorists being detained at Abu Ghraib. They were protesting against those who committed murder against their people. They were protesting against terrorism, Baathism and Wahhabism. If one was a cynic, one would say that the MSM buried this story for a reason. If one was a cynic that is! Sigh...

Ya, well. Blogs rule anyway, Sandmonkey.

I remember that it got some mention here in UK, but I thought it was a demo against removal of security barrier

They also protested against the interim puppet, but that's not being reported everywhere either.
