Iraq's Shiites, Sunnis Form Anti-Occupation Body
Additional Reporting By Samir Haddad, IOL Correspondent

BAGHDAD, May 8 (IslamOnline.net & News Agencies) - Iraq's Sunnis and Shiites formed Saturday, May 8, a pan-religious body to stream efforts for ending the occupation.

The United Iraqi Scholars Group -- which appointed a 16-strong leadership panel -- has vowed to boycott any political group set up by the United States and called for a stronger army than the small force envisioned by the US-led occupation authority, reported Agence France-Presse (AFP).

After a five-hour conference, attended by 500 Iraqis from across the political spectrum, the group said its agenda was based on "legitimate resistance to end the occupation" and keeping Iraq united.

It deemed all laws passed or to be enacted under the yoke of occupation "illegal" and demanded an end of occupation as soon as possible.

The new body, grouping Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds, pressed for sidelining the U.S.-appointed Governing Council and called for a meeting with U.N. envoy Lakhdar Brahimi.



*Al Sistani has signed on to this. The Occupation can now be ended and US Forces can leave.
