Democracy in Iraq #2

BAGHDAD, Iraq — Iraq’s parliament speaker Thursday accused Jews of financing acts of violence in Iraq in order to discredit Islamists who control the parliament and government so they can install their agents in power.

Mahmoud al-Mashhadani hinted that the Americans and Israelis did not want to see officials of Sunni and Shi’ite parties running the country because this is not their agenda.

They will say that we brought you in a democratic way to the government but you are sectarian people. One of you is killing the other and you don’t deserve to become leaders because you are war lords, al-Mashhadani told reporters after a parliament meeting.

Al-Mashhadani is a member of the Sunni Muslim Iraqi Accordance Front while Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki is a member of the Shi’ite Dawa party.

Some people say we saw you beheading, kidnappings and killing. In the end we even started kidnapping women who are our honor, al-Mashhadani said. These acts are not the work of Iraqis. I am sure that he who does this is a Jew and the son of a Jew.

I can tell you about these Jewish, Israelis and Zionists who are using Iraqi money and oil to frustrate the Islamic movement in Iraq and come with the agent and cheap project.

No one deserves to rule Iraq other than Islamists, he said.

What is there even to say at this point to the bellowing blowhards, who continue to act as if the United States government’s ongoing political and material support for this government in Iraq is anything less than a moral crime? The problem with sarcasm is that it’s not bitter enough under the circumstances.
