Multiple bombings across Iraq kill more than 60, mostly Shias

In a new paroxysm of violence in Iraq on Thursday, well over 60 people were killed by a series of car bombings that struck across Baghdad, along with additional suicide bombings in northern Iraq. The bombs targeted Shia neighborhoods, and it's assumed that the perpetrators were al-Qaeda linked terrorists from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant/Sham/Syria (ISIS). President George Bush's military "surge" in 2007 was successful in ejecting al-Qaeda from Iraq, but since the American withdrawal in December 2011, all that work has been coming undone. With Syria's civil war continuing, the fault line between Sunni and Shia Muslims is increasingly inflamed throughout the Mideast, and is drawing both Sunni and Shia jihadists into the region.

Egypt under international criticism for deporting Syrian refugees

With millions of innocent Syrian civilians fleeing their homes to escape bombardment by heavy weapons supplied by Russia to the psychopathic president Bashar al-Assad of Syria, the resources of many neighboring countries are being overwhelmed. Some 300,000 of the refugees have fled to Egypt, which is under international criticism for arresting them and deporting them back to Syria. However, Egyptian authorities say that the vast majority of the Syrian refugees living in Egypt are treated well, and only a small number are deported -- those that commit crimes, and those that participate in protests supporting the Muslim Brotherhood.
