THE HOLY CITY

Why do Western journalists insist upon adding the words "the Holy City" to the name of Najaf every time they mention it. To the best of my knowledge, none of the Western news services reported that a Palestinian tried to cut the throat of a Jewish policemen in the Holy City of Jerusalem; or that the Palestinian bomers who were intercepted a few days ago were attempting to carry out an attack against hte Holy City of Haifa (it is the Bahai world centre); or that al-Qa'ida are threatening massive terrorist attacks in the Holy City of Rome.

Why does the Shi'ite Holy City merit this unique epithet?






Comments:
Well, it seems that the full name of the city is "Najaf al-Ashraf," or "Holy Najaf." But that's a good observation. Want a job as a copy editor? You have that advanced nitpicking ability that newspapers and magazines need to keep 'em honest! ;-)
