Senior Iran cleric hails Islamic state of Iraq

Was this part of the 'noble' cause? A sister state for Iran?

Tehran, Iran, Aug. 26 – A senior Iranian cleric welcomed on Friday the establishment of an Islamic republic in Iraq and hailed the country’s new constitution as one based on “Islamic precepts”.

Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati, who heads the powerful ultra-conservative Guardian Council, told worshippers in Tehran’s Friday prayers, “Fortunately, after years of effort and expectations in Iraq, an Islamic state has come to power and the constitution has been established on the basis of Islamic precepts”.

“We must congratulate the Iraqi people and authorities for this victory”, he said.
He may wish to congratulate George W. Bush, the Republican Party, their cheerleading press and Charles Johnson and all the other warmongering bloggers as well. They played their part.
