    Default Muslim Cleric responsible for kidnap/murder of Margaret Hassan

    Some while ago there was a heated argument on this website about the perpetrators of the killing of Margaret Hassan. Some people denied it was possible she had been murdered by muslim terrorists, and insisted instead she had died at the hands of criminals who kidnapped her for money.

    Yesterday a second Iraqi man was convicted and jailed for Margarets murder, but the Irish Times printed an interesting piece of additional information in its coverage.

    In June 2006, an Iraqi named Mustafa Salman al-Jibouri, who had been caught with Ms Hassanís personal effects, was given a life sentence by a Baghdad court.
    The sentence was reduced to 18 months on appeal. Jibouri testified that Sheikh Hussein al-Zubayi, a wealthy Baghdad cleric and a member of the hardline Sunni Muslim Scholars Association, gave him Hassanís handbag and identity papers.
    Jibouri also had large quantities of syringes, drugs, identity papers and telephone SIM cards, strengthening the assumption that the kidnappers act as a mafia-style organisation.
    Three men who were tried with Jibouri were cleared. Two were brothers of Jibouri, the third a brother of al-Zubayi and the caretaker of his mosque.

    According to a report published by the Christian Science Monitorís correspondent Dan Murphy, US, Iraqi and Italian investigators believe Sheikh al-Zubayi was behind a series of kidnappings of women in Baghdad, including Ms Hassan and female journalists Giuliana Sgrena, Florence Aubenas and Jill Carroll.

    The motive for the kidnappings appears to have been to raise funds for the Sunni insurgency. Al-Zubayi reportedly believed that videos recorded by women hostages had a greater effect on western public opinion.

    So it now appears the insurgents were indeed behind her death.
    I don't expect the muslim apologists here to come running to apologise for their misrepresentations.

    I suspect had America and the UK not illegally invaded Iraq, Ms Hassan would still be with us today. You're right we should hang the criminals - let's start with Bush and Blair.

    These b*stards were too cowardly to go and shoot at American troops.
    Instead they abducted a harmless defenceless saintly lady who had come to Iraq to give charity and assistance to the poor and unfortunate, they held her hostage and deaf to the pleas of mercy from the people who benefited from her humanitarianism, from her family and friends who loved her, deaf to the pleas of the frightened woman herself who they videotaped and flaunted in front of a disgusted world, they shot her in the head and posted her video on the internet.
    Worse they disposed of her body and denied her grieving family the possibility of a decent burial so they could mourn her properly.

    Defending the killers and trying to put the guilt on Bush and Blair, who by the way launched the invasion of Iraq to liberate the Iraqis from dictatorship and gave them the democracy they now enjoy today no thanks the killers who luanched endless terror bombings of other helpless innocents at prayer or in the market, displays your total moral bankruptcy.

    Just go and kill yourself you pathetic inhuman vermin.

    No. You start with those immediately responsible and then branch out where a legal connection can be inferred through due process.

    That cleric may have pulled the trigger, but Bush and Blair are responsible for her death. Again I say, had they not illegally ordered the invasion of the country, this woman might well be alive today - cause/effect.

    A student of quantum physics now are you? Effect always follows cause but in criminal matters the one person who performed the action that caused the effect is the subject of murder. He shot she died. Who should be prosecuted if anyone for his damaged mind is a subsequent matter. But things have to be dealt with in order
