Sistani Says the Right Stuff

In an effort to stem the rising tide of internecine violence between Shia and Sunni that has arisen since the bombing of the Al Askari Mosque in Samarra, Iraq's most important religious leader, the grand ayatollah Ali al-Sistani said last Thursday:

"I call on all sons of Iraq... to be aware of the danger threatening their nation's future and stand shoulder to shoulder in confronting it by rejecting hatred and violence."

It would be great if the Iraqi on Iraqi attacks would diminish--so far nothing. We'll see in the future.

Still, it's much better than had Sistani issued a fatwa for his Shia followers to slaughter all Sunni, so we got that going for us.
