Unconventional thinking about the Middle East.

Preliminary results being circulated among the Iraqi political class are showing a complete rout by the United Iraqi Alliance of rival contenders in all Shia domains of Iraq. The Islamists (list no. ‘555’) are winning by a landslide in almost all precincts, and by landslide I mean over %80.

Maybe it wasn’t such a good idea for me to be so vocal about being an unbeliever—now that Iraq is going fundamentalist. Does anyone have the daily prayer schedules, and what was it again, five times a day or something?

Yup, things look pretty bad, while list no. ‘618’ The Consensus seems to be sweeping most Sunni areas.
