Hazrat Feetarchi Nijad didn't visit Najaf and Kerbala, which was rather odd as he's ultra-conservative, there have been speculations as to why. However, Nijad did the next best thing, he visited al-Kadhumiya shrines in Baghdad (two Shi'i Imams there, but not as important as Kerbala or Najaf), here's footage from SIIC's al-Furat TV. (why is he folding hands, Sunni-style?)
Here's also Nijad in a heated Iranian Shi'i flagellation latmiya ritual, he cries at the end of the rave.
By comparison, here's Saudi Riyadh governor Prince Sulman Bin Abdulaziz's dance with George Bush during the latter's ME visit, one of the most appallingly stupid things I've ever seen. You really gotta love Saudi Arabia's masquerade as the leader of "moderate" Arabs and Islam when they kiss ass so affectionately.
This is why Shi'i leaders like Hasan Nasrallah and Ahmadinijad are gaining ground in the Middle East, in spite of the intensified sectarian campaign spearheaded by Saudi Arabia , the US's best Arab puppy in the region since the beginning of it all, and even though the campaign is working anyway because, like I said before, the intentions of Shi'is aren't exactly friendly and hostility defines the relationship, much to the delight of Shaytan Bozorg herself and her puppies, who are using the Shi'i threat to rally support for their unpopular regimes in the same manner they are doing that with the Danish cartoons.
In spite of all this, Nasrallah probably still remains the most respected leader in the Middle East.
