"They dumped gasoline, burned me, and ran," Youssif told CNN, pointing down the street with his scarred hands where his attackers fled.

As he sucked his thumb, he repeated, "I was burning." He tried to put the flames out himself.

Are you kiddin' me? I won't believe that ppl who did this to a boy are muslim, nor any other religion that worships God. Cause as wrong as it is to judge someone before god, these f':censored:s will burn in hell.

Hey, that's the boy I saw on TV!

Other beachgoers witnessed the scene, joined in and dropped to their knees -- more than 30 people in all. It was nine months ago to the day that Youssif was savagely attacked -- set ablaze by masked men near his Baghdad home.

Watching the scene, the outpouring of warmth from total strangers, Zainab [his mother] wept, tears running down her face.

"I was overcome with emotion," she said later. "Here in America, people were moved by him. Why not in Iraq?"

Aren't there any vigilantes in Iraq?
Those Al-qUeda types that kidnap and behead people and run around the streets with RPG's looking for Allied vehicles to shoot at... are they too busy to take care of a domestic Muslim-on-Muslim crime?
Seems to me that even terrorists would be outraged by burning a kid like this, and they'd be a lot less concerned about "criminal justice" in the courts.
More like street justice at the end of a Kalashnikov.

That was a moving story ... random strangers reaching out .. really cool. Even praying for his attackers. I would be praying they took a long walk off a short pier.
