Muqtada al-Sadr urges rejection of US-Iraqi pact

Waving Iraqi flags and green Shiite banners, protesters chanted slogans condemning the pact. The demonstration in the mostly Shiite eastern part of Baghdad was staged under tight security, with soldiers and police manning checkpoints along the route.

“I am with every Sunni, Shiite or Christian who is opposed to the agreement … and I reject, condemn and renounce the presence of occupying forces and bases on our beloved land,” al-Sadr said in a message read to the crowd by a senior aide.  >>>>>

This demonstration is in Baghdad; where the US has purportedly given them freedom.  There are many in the West who don’t believe that Christians are opposed to anything related to the U.S. occupation.  Very few asked the Christians in Iraq or anti-War activists of the West.
