Iraqis Protest al-Jazeera

More proof that it isn't a Clash of Civilizations thing but a Clash of Values/Identities thing.

Story from AP.

Iraqi Shia are protesting al-Jazeera for a supposed slur against Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani.

The Shia think al-Jazeera (based in Qatar) is to pro-Sunni and pro-Baathist/Saddam in particular. The station has been banned in Iraq since 2004. Not that banning doesn't get the word out, even in Iraq.
