US the enemy of Iraq by Al-Sadr

 Thousands of Iraqis have turned out in the central Iraqi city of Najaf to hear Muqtada al-Sadr's first speech since his return from four years of self-imposed exile. The Shia Muslim religious leader called the US, Israel and the UK common enemies against Iraq in his speech on Saturday , and urged his followers to resist what he called "the occupiers" by all means.

Yes, yes for Muqtada! Yes, yes for the leader!" the crowd shouted, waving Iraqi flags and al-Sadr's pictures. Police and al-Sadr's guards were out in force in Al-Hanana, the area of Najaf where al-Sadr's home is located, and where he spoke.
