An open note to Moqtada al Sadr
To Moqtada al Sadr:

As a Imam of the faith, I am sure I do not need to reminded of the following verse. Your recent actions that threaten the Imam Ali mosque require me to do so.

And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have Turned you out; for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter; but fight them not at the Sacred Mosque, unless they (first) fight you there; but if they fight you, slay them. Such is the reward of those who suppress faith. [Qur'an 2:191]

Far be it from me, a lowly kufr to instruct you on your duty to Allah, but again your recent actions have given me pause. I am sure Allah did not mean for his mosques to be used as places of military interest and hiding places of cowards.

If you want jihad, listen to John Kerry when he says "BRING.IT.ON"
