Another Christian being persecuted! Somebody tell Voice of the Martyrs!
BAGHDAD — Tariq Aziz, a former top aide to Saddam Hussein, was sentenced to death by an Iraqi court on Tuesday for crimes against members of rival Shiite political parties.
Mr. Aziz’s death sentence stemmed from charges of persecution against members of the religious Shiite Dawa Party, which counts Iraq’s current prime minister, Nuri Kamal-al Maliki, among its members.
Oh, oops. Looks like this Christian was sentenced to death for actually persecuting followers of another religion. Voice of the Martyrs will be so sheepish.
