Al-Dhari: We are not calling for a boycott

I just appeared on Aljazeera (Arabic) versus Muthana Harith al-Dhari, of the Commission of Scholars of the Muslims, who spoke from Doha, Qatar. The Commission had been leading the call to boycott the elections, but I found it interesting that al-Dhari backtracked and denied that they are calling for a boycott. Which de facto means that they are calling for participation in the elections, a point that I clarified on the air. They must have sensed that Sunni participation and turnout will be huge, hence they didn't want to seem weak and irrelevant by standing by a boycott that Sunnis are ignoring. So at it stands, only the Islamic State of Iraq (Al-Qaeda) is calling for non-participation. This is a big development. So much for Western analysts who claim that the elections are marred by an alleged Sunni rejection.

When George Washington was inaugurated, he kneeled in St. Paul's Chapel in New York and prayed for the future of America.

Well, I went there today and prayed for the future of Iraq and of the region.

I'm not religious, but I figured it couldn't hurt.

What's certain is that there will be people who will die tomorrow (today, in Iraq, already) for asserting the basic human right of choosing who will govern them.

Without sacrifice, there can be no progress.

Good luck to all of you. You are in my thoughts.
