Coming Next: Jihad Jumble

You just can't make stuff like this up:
From a word game in The Muslim Link, an English-language bi-weekly paper serving the Baltimore and Washington, DC metro areas:

* Iraqi City where scores of Muslims die everyday [sic] from civil strife that started as a result of the US invasion (7) — Baghdad
* Manned by US soldiers who frequently fire on innocent people trying to drive through these 'gates' (10) — Checkpoint
* No. VA Islamic scholar and cancer phD [sic] researcher given life sentence for speaking freely (8) — Altimimi
* This 'blockade' enforced by the US around Iraq after the first Gulf war killed 2 million Iraqi children (starts with s, ends with s, 9 letters total) — sanctions.
