58 die in siege in Catholic church in Iraq, 31 OCTOBER 2010.

Yesterday evening at a service on the Eve of All Saints, 58 people were killed by a terrorist group from Al Quaida.
While the service at Our Lady of Salvation Syriac Catholic Church was taking place, armed men entered ,and in the battle which ensued, between them
and the Iraq security forces a terrible carnage left fifty eight people dead.
Among the dead are three priests,and some of the terrorists.

What suprises me is that there seems to have been no mention of it in Irish news ,because it is of course a totally horrific event .
While some are going on about a little bit of paint,the lives of many peaceful people is totally devastated,and the church is like a war sight.

Why NO NEWS in IRELAND ?

No it's not .
That is an old thread which was started on 12th July 2007.

What happened Yesterday was DRAMATIC and terrible enough to be mentioned in the National news.
No one has mentioned it ,WHY one must wonder ! !

Because they were Catholics....:?

Though Fair play to the Guardian anyway for covering it:

Baghdad church siege survivors speak of taunts, killings and explosions
Attack prompts worldwide condemnation and leaves Iraq's beleaguered Christian community in despair

Dublin should offer all the parishioners a passport allowing them to enter the EU.

Another sad and tragic story from that benighted country.

Ironic to think that the invasion was started by a fundamentalist christian nutjob and that it has now resulted in the decimation of the christian community in the country.

Imagine if the sitaution was reversed - Christians attack a mosque or if Yankee Doodle Dandy hit a Mosque with a missile! Would the press or media be more interested?

Hard to find an anti-catholic/Christian angle for this story, hence the complete lack of interest from the Irish media.

There is a second thread on this topic already and is already four pages long. Your persecution complex is most unattractive.

The even more ironic thing is that Saddam for all his faults very much protected and indeed went as far as building churches for the Christian community there....But tell that to the "Born agains"....

Eh? Yes there was. If you had a radio switched on to RTE or NewsTalk, you'd have heard that news.

It's not a top-line headline because we have so much shyte coming at us here, never mind shyte happening in other countries.
We're too busy screaming at FF, the banks, each other, to take much notice of anything else.

Ironic indeed - but Religion was not the reason for the Invasion.
Bush: 'God told me to invade Iraq, and I did so.' But that wouldn't wash with the others involved, 'war on terror' did.
