Report Of Iraqi Clerics United In Call For Quick Formation Of Government

At a time in American journalism when it is difficult to find any positive reports on events in Iraq, Mudville Gazette has an email from an Iraqi-American who translates a report from an Arabic language newspaper. According to this report the most common theme of speakers in mosques across Iraq during Saturday's services was a call for all sides to put aside their differences and form a government rapidly. The quotes point to the formation of a government as the best means to bring stability to the country.

Not exactly the kind of speeches from the pulpit one would expect in country in full blown sectarian civil war.
