IS THIS NOT A WORLD WAR ?

Pray for the safe return of hostages

A member of Iraq's Governing Council said April 12, 2004 that 12
hostages had been freed and he hopedall remaining hostages
would be released later in the day. Mohsen Abdel Hamid said the
release followed a decree issued by the Association of Muslim
Clerics
condemning hostage taking. The association had also
been in talks to try to secure the remaining captives' release.

NB: An Association of Muslim clerics in Mosul declared (Nov. '03) that
any cooperation with occupation forces is "sinful."
