On May 2, 2010, multiple news media reports addressed the targeted attack on Christian students in Iraq on buses traveling to Mosul University with multiple bombs.  The bombings wounded at least 80 and killed at least one person, who was a Christian shop keeper.

A car bomb and a roadside bomb went off near buses carrying university students close to Mosul. The dead man was a Christian shop owner near the blast scene, police said.

The buses were transporting the students from the mainly Christian town of Hamdaniya, 40km east of Mosul.

Tensions have risen since a 7 March parliamentary election that produced no clear winner and left a power vacuum as political factions jockey for position in a new government.'All of them were Christian students. They go in buses like that to Mosul's university after the troubled times when Christians were targeted in the past,' Nissan Karoumi, mayor of Hamdaniya said.

Very sad and frustrating. Sure there are other motives behind it than just targeting innocent students, but really, what have our Assyrian students done to deserve this?

Although at last count only one person had died-one is too many-and more than 100 injured, I hope this will be a big wake-up call to everyone in the region, to look and see what is happening. This may not be happening everyday, but it is happening randomly and that is even worse.

God help their families and give them the strength to deal with this.

And to those who keep doing this? what can I say, sooner or later, you will either be brought to justice, or 'be taken by the sword' yourself.

Sorry guys, I know it is not something to laugh at, but there is a deep meaning to what Jonadana said.

HAMDANIYAH, Iraq (AFP) – Thousands of Christians protested in northern Iraq on Monday to condemn a bomb attack on a bus carrying students and workers which left one person dead and 80 wounded.

"We are not a minority, we are an authentic part of the Iraqi people," said a banner at the demonstration. "We ask the prime minister (Nuri al-Maliki) to stop the tragedy of the Christians," it added.

The attack, comprising a car bomb and an improvised explosive device, took place on a highway about three kilometres east of Mosul, the capital of Nineveh province, on Sunday.

Monday's protest in Hamdaniyah, a Christian area, from where the bombing's victims had been travelling to the University of Mosul.

Church leaders, supported by Arab tribes, led between 2,500-3,000 people at the demonstration.

"The government is silent and is doing nothing about (the trouble) we face," said Basim Sameer, a 47-year-old engineer.

In November, the New York-based Human Rights Watch warned that minorities including Christians were the collateral victims of a conflict between Arabs and Kurds over control of disputed oil-rich provinces in northern Iraq.

While sectarian violence has dropped dramatically across Iraq since its peak between 2005 and 2007, attacks remain common, especially in Baghdad and Mosul.

The Assyrian Democratic Movement Visits the Wounded Students Who Have Been Targeted in Baghdeda

Zowaa – Special

A delegation from the Assyrian Democratic Movement went on Monday May 3, 2010 to the Hamdania General Hospital to visit our wounded students from the heinous terrorist operation that targeted their buses yesterday, May 2, 2010, which claimed the life of the martyr (Radief Hashem El-Mahrouk) and wounded more than a hundred, some of them in critical conditions, of our innocent students, that were going from Baghdeda to the University of Mosul. The only thing they wanted is to receive education hoping to serve their country in the near future with all their great potentials.....

You are truly delusional, you know that. The article says that the LARGEST RELIGION in the world is ISLAM. period. I know that Catholicism is a sect of Christianity, but the article is wise enough to say that ISLAM has surpassed even the largest sect of Christianity which is Catholicism. That clearly shows that there are more Muslims than any other religion.

it wouldnt bring anything. you have to remember: we make 1 - 4 children per family. they make 20 - 40 children per family.
so our aim have to be, how no one of ours get killed. I'm for a big along wall, for the ninve plains to the turkish and KRG borders but including Nohadra.  :blush2:
