Muslim vs. Muslim
by Jonathan Schanzer • Jul 27, 2008 at 11:00 pm
Attacks took place throughout the Muslim world this weekend. This time, however, all of the attacks were carried out by Muslims against Muslims:
Fatah members allegedly attacked Hamas members, killing 6, sparking mass arrests of Fatah members in Hamas-controlled Gaza.
Some 15 people were killed and 150+ injured when two bombs exploded on a busy shopping street in Turkey. Islamists are suspected.
Indian authorities arrested 30 in connection with bomb explosions in Ahmedabab that killed at least 45 people.
A female suicide bomber killed at least 8 in the Iraqi city of Baquba, leaving two dozen other people wounded.
As many analysts have noted, the battle against radical Islam is playing out less as a clash of civilizations, and more of a clash within Islam. We can only do our best to support the moderates in this battle.
