Good News from Iraq

From Najaf, the city of the holy shrine we spared destruction, comes this good news.

The leader of the largest Shiite Muslim group that opposed Saddam Hussein said Tuesday that a democratic government should rule Iraq, days after he advocated a "modern Islamic regime."

"Neither an Islamic government nor a secular administration will work in Iraq but a democratic state that respects Islam as the religion of a majority of the population," Ayatollah Mohammed Baqir al-Hakim said at a news conference Tuesday.
