A. "Why Don't Iraqis Reject the Iranian Sistani's
Interventions?"
(Editorial by Jawad Kadhum Al-Najaf - Kitabat (Writings)
Website (http://www.kitabat.com) - independent based in
Germany)

"As expected, Iranian intelligence has stepped-up its
efforts before the elections with the goal of scamming the
Shiites of Iraq into taking control of political decision-
making, robbing the wealth [of Iraq], and assuming power.

"I can't understand how a self respecting nation could
permit the intervention of an Iranian foreigner, such as Al-
Sistani, in its internal affairs and allow him to exploit
the emotions of simple people to deform the democratic
process. And what's with the silence towards the domination
of a number of Shiite parties instigated by Iranian

"How long will these despicable Iranian individuals
manipulate the fate of Iraq, tear apart its social fabric,
and push it towards joining Iran and enslaving Iraqis to
serve Persians?
When will Iraqi Shiites recognize that all Iranians whether
Al-Sistani, Abdul Aziz Al-Hakim, Solag, Al-Ja'fari, and
others couldn't care less about the interests of Iraq and
the Shiite population within-they are only concerned with
their personal interests and those of Iran, and see Iraq as
nothing more than a bridge to the achievement of their
plots.

"This mass stupidity of the Shiites of Iraq and their
submission to the domination of rotten Iranian mobs is
amazing. Where is our national pride? Why don't Iraqis
reject these interventions and rebel against the strongholds
of Iranian intelligence in Iraq and drive them across the
border?"
