"On January 29 six churches in the Iraqi cities of Baghdad and Kirkuk were targeted by car bombs, killing 13-year-old worshipper Fadi Raad Elias. No militants claimed to be retaliating for the pictures, nor is this the first time Iraqi churches have been bombed;  but the bishop of the church stated "The church blasts were a reaction to the cartoons published in European papers. But Christians are not responsible for what is published in Europe." Many Assyrians in Iraq now feel like "Westerners should not give wild statements [as] everyone can attack us [in response]" and "Today I'm afraid to walk the streets, because I'm Christian." [] Also on January 29, a Muslim Cleric in the Iraqi city of Mosul issued a fatwa stating, "Expel the Crusaders and infidels from the streets, schools, and institutions because they have offended the person of the prophet."  It has been reported that Muslim students beat up a Christian student at Mosul University in response to the fatwa on the same day. On February 2, Palestinians in the West Bank handed out a leaflet signed by a Fatah militant group and Islamic Jihad stating, "Churches in Gaza could come under attack"." source Why are Muslims attacking Christians and blowing up Christian Churches when the ones drawing these CARTOONS are most likely atheists? While I am no fan of the Roman Catholic crucifix, I dont remember Christians going around blowing up gay bars when some homosexual stuck one in a jar of urine and called it an expression of free speech.
