"Ill-omened trinity"

Via Juan Cole, I learn that Iraqi Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr
accused "the common enemy, Israel, Britain and America" of being "the ill-omened trinity that sows turmoil among us."
Seems more literate, somehow, than "axis of evil." So which country is father, son, or holy ghost?

Sadr has recently traveled to Iran and Syria. Sadr controls a sizeable block in the new Iraqi parliament. If they had even one little toe based in reality, the Bushies might soon be admitting that at least we were better off with Saddam Hussein in power.
