Imam Hussein, Ashoura and the Sunni Muslims

In “Fear of ‘Zealots’ Exacerbates War’s Violence on Both Sides” in the Wall Street Journal of June 15-16, 2013 Rima Abushakra wrote:


'He said an entire family of his relatives was killed in the nearby town of Karm al-Zeytoon and “At your service Hussein” was written on the walls of their home, a reference to a Shiite figure killed at the hands of Sunnis.'


Let’s see how many Muslims write The Wall Street Journal and reporter Abushakra to correct her characterization of Imam Hussein and Ashoura.


I am guessing none will write.
