Farrakhan in Iraq for 'solidarity' visit

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan held a series of meetings Saturday with Iraqi officials on the second day of his visit to the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, to discuss ways to avoid a possible U.S. military campaign.

The official Iraqi News Agency, INA, said Farrakhan, on a "solidarity" visit to Iraq, held talks with Islamic Affairs Minister Abdul Munem Saleh on "ways to confront the American threats against Iraq."

INA quoted the African-American Muslim leader as saying "the Muslim American people are praying to the almighty God to grant victory to Iraq."

I would suggest Farrakhan move there ... if he actually said something so stupid. I doubt he did ... he knows he wouldn't survive the politics in Iraq for five minutes. It's one thing to live in America and make a career of complaining, it's another to risk your life practicing what you preach.
