Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

The mosque complex is occupied by militia loyal to the rebellious Shia cleric, Moqtada Sadr.

The move comes after days of heavy fighting in the streets around the Imam Ali shrine.

Interim Iraqi Defence Minister Hazim Shalaan is quoted as saying that the government is losing patience

A spokesman for Moqtada Sadr said he was ready to negotiate with the Iraq government over the Najaf crisis.

"We are ready to negotiate to put an end to the suffering," Ali Smeisim told reporters.

However, correspondents point out that several previous ultimatums from the US-backed Iraqi government have passed without the shrine - the holiest of Shia Islam - being damaged.

Mr Sadr's Mehdi Army militia has been fighting American marines surrounding the shrine for the past three weeks.

I see your point, and if *I* was in his position, i would do ALL i can to protect the shrine. But i would also do all i can to make sure the occupiers don't go in it...He is the ONLY one who stood up to them, and clearly said hey this isnt what we want, we want you out. Why are the Americans so interested in Najaf?

The Americans are only interested in the shrine because he is there. If he were to leave they would follow. If he was a hero he would be fighting them outside of town not hiding in the shrine.

I never said any of that was right. But do US injustices to Sadr justify Sadr putting the shrine at risk? The US was wrong to shut down his newspaper but does that make his hiding behind the shrine right?

moqtada sadr is a great man...

but (in my opinion)... but wut I think happened is that Jaish Al mahdi (ag) was lured by the americans...

The Americans made it look as though they were going to take the shrine over and destroy it, so the Al mahdi troops hurried down to the shrine to defend it... and Booom... they where trapped... they fell into the americans trap...

and now, if they leave, they'll destroy it, and if they stay, they'll try to do it aswell...

my 2 cents..

PEACE

Same reason why all reporters and newscasts were kicked out of Najaf, it's part of the whole "freedom" deal.

Maybe my ideas are a little offbeat, but I really can't understand the way people go on and on about the shrine. I mean it's a building, built by human beings. Imam Ali(as) is not there. Yes it has special significance because it's built over his grave, but come on, it's a building. It was built before and can be built again. Sometimes I think people worship the building. I can't imagine that if Imam Ali(as) were here, his main concern would be protecting his shrine.

Of course not, turning the Holy Shrine into an Ammo’s Storage facility isn’t acceptable either; two wrongs don’t make a right. But keep in mind that it was Bremer and the Pentagon are the ones who started this whole incident, and trust me; they are going to pay politically for this provocation. Firstly by the American Public, and secondly by the Iraqis come Election time in Nov/January.

Yes,

this would never have happened if he had obeyed Ayatollah Seestanis orders in the first place.

Yes, but what would Imam Husain think? What would Imam Hasan think?

What *DOES* Imam Mehdi think?

Surely they respect their Great Father - the closest companion of Prophet Muhammad. Surely they would want to respect the peace and tranquility of Najaf.

Most ASSUREDLY they would demand that the rules of Jihad be followed. Due to Sadr's actions, regular citizens of Najaf have been forced to flee their homes. Is this permissible in Jihad? Is it permissible to overtake an entire masjid and claim it as your base in the midst of Jihad? Is it permissible to kidnap governmental officials (corrupt or not) in Jihad?

Salaam alaikum,

I barely know what I think, I can't be guessing what others would think, especially not those you mentioned.

What are the rules of jihad in this instance? I really don't know, but I don't see that they started the fighting in Najaf. Once the fighting started, then of course civilians would leave. They would leave, no matter where the fighting took place, this is usual in war.

As far as government officials, are they innocent kidnap victims or prisoners of war? There may be more than one way to look at it.

waSalaam, Hajar
