Will Sistani Issue The Long Awaited Fatwa?
We haven't heard much from Grand Ayatollah Ali Sistani for over a year, but if this report is true then he could be the man who will end the American occupation of Iraq by uttering just a few words. What the report says is that he is close to issuing a fatwa, or religious edict, which will call on all the Shia to expel the United States' forces from that country.
If this fatwa is issued then it really is game over for the occupation. The question then would be, how will they manage to get out in one piece, given that just about every Iraqi will be taking pot shots at them?
Got your popcorn ready? The main feature could be about ready to begin.
