IT'S JIHAD TIME, as usual:

A leading Iraqi imam, holding a rifle as he led weekly prayers in Baghdad today, called on Muslims and Arabs worldwide to launch a "Jihad" or holy war to protest the US-led onslaught against Iraq.

"We address our appeal to all Muslims and Arabs everywhere to tell them this is the day of the Jihad which has become the duty of every Muslim," said Abdel Ghaffur al-Qaissi.

"Failing to join the Jihad would be disobeying the orders of God," he said.

I wonder if this Australian kid will heed the call.
