Why ruin a nice Blood Festival with all that violence? Can't Muslims maim their children in the name of Islam without it having to get messy?


On Shiites' holiest day, 44 dead in Iraq

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Assailants struck Shiite worshippers in three Iraqi cities Tuesday, killing at least 39 people in bombings and ambushes during the climax of ceremonies marking Ashoura, the holiest day in the Shiite calendar. In apparent retaliation, mortar shells slammed into predominantly Sunni neighborhoods in Baghdad hours later, killing at least five people and wounding 20, officials said.
The bloodiest attack Tuesday occurred when a suicide bomber blew himself up among a crowd of worshippers entering a Shiite mosque, killing 19 people and wounding 54 in Mandali, a predominantly Shiite city northeast of Baghdad and near the Iranian border.
To the north, a bomb in a garbage can exploded as scores of Shiites — most them Kurds — were performing rituals in Khanaqin, a majority Kurdish city also near the Iranian border. At least 13 people were killed and 39 were wounded, police Maj. Idriss Mohammed said.
"I was participating in Ashoura ceremonies with my son and all of a sudden the bloodshed hit," Abdul Jasim Hassan said, holding his 11-year-old son, Hussein, whose right leg was bleeding.

THIS IS WHAT THE ISLAMIC FESTIVITIES LOOK LIKE WITHOUT THE BLOODY ATTACKS AGAINST MUSLIMS BY MUSLIMS IN ACCORDANCE TO THEIR MUSLIM SENSEBILITIES...(hey, isn't that Keith Ellison over there on the left?):
