Evidence is stacking up that Iraq will be less of an issue in 2008 than was once suspected. Republicans in the US Senate turned back a Democrat effort to hijack a troop funding bill into a troop withdrawal bill. And the top Democrat contenders have refused to say that they will bring all the troops home.

Independent journalist Michael Yon posted the following picture on his website today, from the St. John’s Catholic Church in Baghdad. “Today, Muslims mostly filled the front pews of St John’s. Muslims who want their Christian friends and neighbors to come home.” Read that last sentence again. “Muslims who want their Christian friends and neighbors to come home.” Was there ever clearer evidence that an Iraq victory is at hand?

Muslims want the Christians to come home.

From Michael-Yon.com:

Today, Muslims mostly filled the front pews of St John’s. Muslims who want their Christian friends and neighbors to come home. The Christians who might see these photos likely will recognize their friends here. The Muslims in this neighborhood worry that other people will take the homes of their Christian neighbors, and that the Christians will never come back. And so they came to St John’s today in force, and they showed their faces, and they said, “Come back to Iraq. Come home.” They wanted the cameras to catch it. They wanted to spread the word: Come home. Muslims keep telling me to get it on the news. “Tell the Christians to come home to their country Iraq.”
