Massacre in Haditha

By Dr. Aslam Abdullah

Preliminary investigations have pointed out that the Marines were responsible for a massacre of more than two dozen Iraqi civilians.

Can we blame the US, or Pentagon or every American soldier for that? Must we ask every soldier and every battalion in the US to denoucnce that act? Must we argue that US military doctrine teaches this type of act? Must we say, that the Marines were motivated by hatred or non-whites? Must we say that they were acting under a Christian impulse?

No, We would be our of our minds to make that generalization. But this is precisely what the US media and power elite has done to point their fingers at every Muslim for 9/11 acts of terrorism.
