Iraq PM condemns Israel over attacks

Doesn't seem the Iraqi leadership is on the same page as the US. Should I be surprised Maliki is more sympathetic toward fellow Shia in Lebabon than to America's support of Israel? Not really.

From the New York Times
"The Israeli attacks and airstrikes are completely destroying Lebanon's infrastructure," Mr. Maliki said at an afternoon news conference inside the fortified Green Zone, which houses the American embassy and the seat of the Iraqi government. "I condemn these aggressions and call on the Arab League foreign ministers' meeting in Cairo to take quick action to stop these aggressions. We call on the world to take quick stands to stop the Israeli aggression."

The American Embassy did not answer a reporter's request for a response.
