This caught my attention when I heard about it on the news this morning:

An Iraqi Shi'ite Muslim leader in the holy city of Najaf has issued an edict urging Iraqis not to hinder U.S. invading forces, a Shi'ite group in London said Thursday.
Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, who had been under house arrest on President Saddam Hussein's orders, issued the fatwa to try to stop fighting in Najaf, a spokesman for the Al Khoei foundation in London told Reuters.

This is the first I've heard of any Muslim leaders in the region openly supporting the Coalition, or at least officially not opposing it. I'm curious to see if any others will have the courage to follow suit.
