Sistani on Lebanon
On the other hand, when Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani says it, we had better listen.
"Islamic nations will not forgive the entities that hinder a cease-fire," al-Sistani said, in a clear reference to the United States.
"It is not possible to stand helpless in front of this Israeli aggression on Lebanon," he added. "If an immediate cease-fire in this Israeli aggression is not imposed, dire consequences will befall the region."
Sistani who has a significant following throughout the Shia world has been a consistent and strident voice against Shia violence in Iraq which gives this veiled threat a lot more meaning.
