Another suicide bombing in Baghdad

According to CBS News/AP:
BAGHDAD - A suicide bomber detonated an explosives-packed car near a funeral procession in southeastern Baghdad on Friday, killing at least 32 people — half of them policemen who were guarding the march — in the latest brazen attack since the U.S. troop withdrawal from Iraq.
For years the America-hating Left said that all the killing in Iraq (and elsewhere in the Middle East, for that matter) was the result of U.S. intervention in their affairs. The U.S. is now gone, yet the Muslim-on-Muslim violence continues, just as it has since the days of Muhammad's earliest successors.

Oh, I know. The Left will predictably respond saying that Christian-on-Christian violence has also occurred since the days of Christianity's founder. They fail to understand, however, that generally speaking, those who commit violence in the name of Christianity are not following Jesus' example and are behaving in direct violation of his teachings. Those who commit violence in the name of Islam are following their founder's example and acting in direct obedience to his teachings.
