You're only imagining it

From MyWay News:

Suicide bombers shattered a day of prayers at two Shiite mosques and at a religious procession Friday, killing at least 27 people and injuring dozens more on the eve of Shiite Islam's most important holiday, officials said.

The blasts recalled deadly explosions on the Ashoura holiday a year ago that killed 181 during the religious festival.

The first blast occurred in Baghdad's southern Dora neighborhood near the al-Khadimain mosque and killed at least 15, Police Capt. Falah al-Mahdawi said. Another 20 were injured.

A second blast caused by a suicide bomber occurred outside the Al Bayaa mosque in a predominantly Shiite neighborhood of western Baghdad, Lt. Col. Jalal Sabry of the local police station said. An official at Baghdad's al-Yarmuk hospital said at least 10 victims were brought there from that explosion.

In the third blast, another suicide bomber blew himself up near an Ashoura procession in the Shiite Ash Shulah district northwest of the city center, killing two and injuring five, police 1st Lt. Waed Hussein said.

Now remember, according to Islamic apologist Jamal Badawi, it’s only media distortion that gives the impression that Moslems are violent.
