Iraqis Hold Unity Protests

Gateway Pundit blogged
After a brutal week, Iraqis united on Friday:

  • Iraq's most influential Shiite political leader called Friday for Sunni-Shiite unity.
  • Several joint Sunni-Shiite prayer services were announced for Friday
  • Top Shiite leader Abdul-Aziz al-Hakim, head of the Supreme Council for the Islamic Revolution in Iraq, blamed Saddam Hussein loyalists and followers of al-Qaida in Iraq boss Abu Musab al-Zarqawi
  • U.S. Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad said this was a "moment of opportunity" for Iraq.
Thanks to ABC News for this story, but why isn't the rest of the MSM announcing it?
