A Sunni Muslim cleric whose followers described him as a peaceful, quiet force in the community was shot dead during the weekend when gunmen knocked on the door of his home just after prayers, neighbors said.

The assassination of Sheik Dhamir al-Dhari, a cleric for the past 20 years in Baghdad's western Khadra neighborhood, stunned people in the area, who said they could not fathom why he had been targeted and shot to death Saturday.
Well, of course it is just my opinion, but from where I sit it appears to be the latest in oursiders efforts to ignite a full scale civil war between the religious factions in Iraq.
