About 1,000 backers of Iraq's anti-American Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr are holding a protest against Israel's airstrikes on the Gaza Strip. The demonstrators chanted and burned Israeli and American flags in the Monday gathering at a square in eastern Baghdad. A top aide to al-Sadr, Imam Abdul Hadi al-Mohammadawi, told the crowd that the whole world knows about "the bloody history of Israel" and the "horrible crime" they are committing in Gaza. Separately, the party of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki issued a statement condemning the attacks and calling on Islamic countries to cut relations with Israel and end all "secret and public talks" with it.
