Iraq War is turning young people away from Islam

5 03 2008

When I found this article from the New York Times, I had to write a post about it.

Here is the link.

Apparently, Iraqi kids are feeling a little disenchanted and betrayed by radical Muslim clerics. The clerics are primarily responsible for igniting and maintaining a bloody religious civil war within Iraq. This war has killed thousands of American personnel and many times that among the Iraqis themselves. I can’t say I disagree with them. If you saw people tearing your country apart and killing thousands over minor ideological differences, wouldn’t you want to distance yourself from the mindset that created that situation in the first place?
