Prominent Iraqi politician and Islamic thinker Iyad Jamal Eldin survived a failed assasination attempt in Nasiriyah. An armed grouped attacked his convey injuring a number of his guards.
Iyad Jamal Eldin is a member of Iyad Allawi's coalition. He is also a harsh critic of the current Shia parties and of Iran. Iyad belongs to the Shia school of thought that believes in seperation between religion and politics. Words cannot describe how great this man is and how intelligent his thoughts are. I am so glad he survived and I pray he stays away from harm. People like Iyad Jamal Eldin give me hope. If I were an athiest, people like him would make me think twice.
