The real reasons are surfacing as to why Iraqi Sunnis turned on Al Qaeda in late 2006, and with American backing helped to remove Al Qaeda from their area. Al Qaeda tried to force their insane version of Islamic law upon their newly acquired muslim Iraqi area and the people who lived there. Such as:
Female goats killed because their genitalia were unconvered and tails pointed upward - thus exposed.
Cumcumbers were said to be male (tomatoes were female) thus women could not buy those "suggestive" vegetables.
Ice cream salesman was killed because ice cream was not available during the time of Mohommed.
Men had fingers sliced off - for smoking.
Hair salons and shops selling cosmetics were blown up.
Treatment of women by male doctors was forbidden.
Singing - was forbidden.
Shaving - was forbidden Sideburns -was forbidden. Any barbers who did either were killed.
Man who sold musical CD's on list to be killed and shop to be bombed.
Women were given leaflets threatening with kidnapping or death if they didn't wear the niqab.
Iraqi women were forced to marry Al Qaeda men.
Those who did not give their allegiance to Al Qaeda were slaughtered - even children
Thus, disgusted by such acts and oppression, the Iraqi Sunni leaders and people saw that it was far better to work with the American military rather than suffer such outrageous treament by Al Qaeda invaders. This change in allegiance is the a large contributing reason that the number of post American & British military surge civilian and military deaths have dramatically dropped. An observation and fact that most mainstream media continue to be reluctantant to cite.
The insanely bizarre rules and behaviours of Al Qaeda leads many to believe that Al Qaeda is its OWN WORST ENEMY. Thus in the future one could see Al Qaeda terrorists at least partially brought down by a common vegetable - the cucumber or an unclothed female goat. How fitting.
