Suicide bomber hits Iraqi Gaza protest

BAGHDAD — A suicide bomber on a bicycle blew himself up Sunday amid a crowd of demonstrators in northern Iraq who were protesting Israel’s airstrikes on Gaza, killing one demonstrator and wounding 16 others, Iraqi police said.
The bomber rode his bicycle into the demonstration of about 1,300 people in the center of the northern city of Mosul, said a police officer who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak with news media.
The demonstration was organized by the Sunni Iraqi Islamic Party. The party’s Mosul spokesman, Yahiya Abid Mahjoub, complained that police and the Iraqi army had not taken security precautions for the demonstration.
There has been no claim of responsibility for the attack, the officer said.
“The ones who targeted our brothers in Gaza are the same who targeted us in Mosul today. They are agents of Israel,” Mahjoub said.
As far as the Associated Press item is concerned, Mr Mahjoub did not prove this allegation.
First of all, condolences to the families and friends of those who died or got wounded.
Second: according to conspiracy theorists, everyone who opposes United States occupation in Iraq, violently or non violently; Muslim, Christian, atheist, or other; moderate Muslim or extreme Muslim; and also everyone perpetrating violence against Iraqi civilians; is supposed to be part of a sinister big world Muslim conspiracy.
So are, supposedly, all people who oppose Israeli government violence in Gaza. But, wait a moment; here someone supposed to be part of that conspiracy violently attacks others supposed to be part of that conspiracy … Would, dare I say it, the conspiracy theory be total bull?
Most of the violence in Iraq is by United States or other occupation soldiers or mercenaries, or by allies of them like the Badr Brigade. So, against this background, the perpetrator(s) of the crime in Mosul might not be “agents of Israel”, but direct or indirect agents of the George W Bush administration in the USA.
