Sunni walks out of Tourism Conference
AFP reports that Adnan Doulami, the religious director for Sunni Muslims walked out on a tourism conference on Saturday. He was protesting the remarks of Hussein al-Shami, director of Shiite pious endowments. Al-Shami attacked Wahhabis for denigrating shrines and saints, insisting that the shrines of the Shiite Imams are bestowers of wisdom. Sunnis in Iraq are apparently not used to Shiites openly speaking their minds like that.
