Karbala, Iraq

A group of Iraqi-American women, and other multinational female Iraqis, protest in the holy Shia city of Karbala against Obama’s “dull” attitude toward the ISIL offensive across Iraq.

Nivine Ahmed, an American citizen in the protest said that she is upset because she feels the American response to events in Iraq is supportive of what she feels is terrorism at the hands ISIL. The protestors came to Iraq without getting approval from the American government. They first flew to Lebanon with their American passports, entering on tourist visas, and then flew to Najaf and entered Iraq using Iraqi passports.
