Karbala & current war against Islam.

Published on Nov 23, 2012 by PressTVGlobalNews : The battle of Karbala took place over 1400 years ago and is still commemorated on a yearly basis.The battle took place between the tyrannical army of Yazid and the Grandson of the Prophet and Imam of that time, Imam Hussain, along with 72 members of his family.
