The first traditional Friday prayer after the American tank invasion has taken place in Baghdad, with its participants demanding that the American servicemen leave the country. As the prayer went on, one of the imams said the USA had unleashed a war against Iraq to protect Israel.
When the ceremony was over, the worshippers began voicing anti-American slogans and waving posters with the following inscriptions: "No to America. No to a secular state. Yes to the Islamic state."
