As if the situation in Iraq wasn’t bad enough it appears that American marines are contributing to the problem by attempting to convert the Muslim residents of Fallujah to Christianity.
According to this report, unidentified Marines are said to have passed out evangelical coins at the gates of Fallujah while serving as guards.
One side of the coin asks “Where will you spend eternity?”. When you flip it over you’re told how “God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16″.
This comes on the heals of another story about a sniper sing a Koran for target practice near Baghdad.
If this story turns out to be factual, I hope the marine(s) involved are severely punished because every time one of them does something like this they slander not just their fellow marines, but every American soldier in Iraq.
The fact of the matter is a lot of Muslims are convinced that America invaded Iraq for the purpose of converting them to Christianity. This kind of shit “proves” it and makes Muslims both fearful and/or suspicious of the American soldiers they encounter.
