Sunni Cleric Urges Unity Against Violence

See Iraqi Cleric Urges Unity Against Violence by Tarek El-Tablawy in Los Angeles Times September 16, 2005.

“Sheik Mahmud al-Sumaidaei, a leading Sunni cleric whose group is linked to the country's insurgency, criticized militants for targeting civilians. He called for Iraq's religious and ethnic groups to take a stand against further bloodshed.”

" ‘I call for a meeting ... of all the country's religious and political leaders to take a stand against the bloodshed,’ al-Sumaidaei said during his sermon at Baghdad's Um al Qura Sunni mosque.”

“ ‘We don't need others to come across the border and kill us in the name of defending us,’ he declared, a reference to foreign fighters who have joined the insurgency under the banner of al-Qaida. ‘We reject the killing of any Iraqi’."
