Deputy Commander of Badr Brigades collaborators buried after assassination by Iraqi Resistance on Thursday.
Leading members of the Shi'i chauvinist collaborationist Badr Brigade militia held the funeral for the deputy commander of the Badr Brigades, Hadi Tannan Husayn who was killed in an Iraqi Resistance attack in ad-Dujayl in Salah ad-Din Province northwest of Baghdad on Thursday, 7 July 2005 after an inspection visit there. According to a statement by the ad-Dujayl puppet police Husayn had been visiting Badr Brigade members who were serving as Iraqi puppet soldiers in the ad-Dujayl area – as they do in many areas of occupied Iraq.
Mafkarat al-Islam reported from Baghdad that the body of Hadi Husayn was brought to the occupied Iraqi capital at 3pm local time Sunday from ad-Dujayl where it had been kept in a freezer. The corpse was accompanied by an escort of puppet military forces and vehicles.
The correspondent said that the funeral had strong overtones of sectarian revenge against Husayn’s "killers" as slogans were chanted during funeral services saying that "'Wahhabism’ and 'terrorism’ were two sides of one coin."
The 'Umar ibn al-Khattab brigade of the Iraqi Resistance organization Base Qa'idah of the Jihad in the Land of the Two Rivers announced its responsibility for the elimination of the deputy chief of the sectarian Badr Brigades. The al-Qa'idah statement noted that four of Husayn’s companions were also killed when its fighters threw hand grenades and fired machine guns at the collaborationist Shi'i chauvinist deputy commander’s motorcade on Thursday morning.
The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam noted that Hadi Tannan Husayn had been sentenced to death by Iraqi courts in the years prior to the American invasion after he was convicted of spying for Iran at the beginning of the 1990s.
Al-Qa'idah had announced on an earlier occasion that the 'Umar ibn al-Khattab Brigade was formed to protect Iraqi Sunnis after the Badr Brigades launched a campaign of torture and assassination of prominent members of the Sunni community.

A source in the puppet so-called "al-Karrar Brigade" told the correspondent that the two-man crew of the helicopter were killed in the wreck of the aircraft.

Kurdish fundamentalist group founds the Squadrons of the Repentant and joins armed Iraqi Resistance.
An Iraqi Kurdish fundamentalist group announced on Sunday that it was forming an armed organization to join the Iraqi Resistance in the struggle against the US occupation and its allies and stooges.
In an occurrence that is the first of its kind since the Americans invaded Iraq in spring 2003, the Squadrons of the Repentant Saraya at-Ta’ibin issued a communiqué in which they announced that they had joined with their brothers in the Iraqi Resistance in order to fight the occupation.
The communiqué of the Repentant Squadrons also promised "dark days" for the south Korean aggressor garrison located in Irbil.
The communiqué concluded with a well-known quotation from the Prophet Muhammad saying that Arabs are no better than non-Arabs unless they were more God-fearing.
Body of Karate Federation Chief found.
The body of the President of the Iraqi Karate Federation was found in a riverbed in the southern Iraqi city of al-Kut on Sunday. 'Ali Shakir, the President of the Iraqi Karate Federation, was abducted on Saturday in al-Latifiyah, south of Baghdad. Today, his bullet-ridden body was found further south and east in the country.
Shakir made a name before the US occupation in Karate and Judo and also was President of the Babil Branch of the Iraqi Football Federation.
The American Associated Press quoted sources in the Iraqi puppet police as saying that the body was identified on the basis of identity papers and other documents still on the corpse when it was discovered.
Men in puppet police uniforms at a false checkpoint reportedly abducted Shakir on Saturday. As head of a state-backed sports organization, Shakir would be regarded as a figure in the current Iraqi puppet state.

A Letter to the British People from a daughter of Iraq.
I’m sending this letter to the British people and in particular to the residents of London. For a period of hours, you have lived through moments of desperate anxiety and horror. In those hours you lost a member of your family or a friend, and we wish to tell you in total honesty that we too grieve when human lives pass away. I cannot tell you how much we hurt when we see desperation and pain on the face of another person. For we have lived through this situation – and continue to live through it every day – since your country and the United States formed an alliance and laid plans to attack Iraq.
The Prime Minister of your country, Tony Blair, said that those who carried out the explosions did so in the name of Islam. The Secretary of State of the United States, Condaleezza Rice, described the bombings as an act of barbarism. The United Nations Security Council met and unanimously condemned the event.
I would like to ask you, the free British people, to allow me to inquire: in whose name was our country blockaded for 12 years? In whose name were our cities bombed using internationally prohibited weapons? In whose name did the British army kill Iraqis and torture them? Was that in your name? Or in the name of religion? Or humanity? Or freedom? Or democracy?
What do you call the killing of more than two million children? What do you call the pollution of the soil and the water with depleted uranium and other lethal substances?
What do you call what happened in the prisons in Iraq – in Abu Ghraib, Camp Bucca and the many other prison camps? What do you call the torture of men, women, and children? What do you call tying bombs to the bodies of prisoners and blowing them apart? What do you call the refinement of methods of torture for use on Iraqi prisoners – such as pulling off limbs, gouging out eyes, putting out cigarettes on their skin, and using cigarette lighters to set fire to the hair on their heads? Does the word "barbaric" adequately describe the behavior of your troops in Iraq?
May we ask why the Security Council did not condemn the massacre in al-Amiriyah and what happened in al-Fallujah, Tal'afar, Sadr City, and an-Najaf? Why does the world watch as our people are killed and tortured and not condemn the crimes being committed against us? Are you human beings and we something less? Do you think that only you can feel pain and we can’t? In fact it is we who are most aware of how intense is the pain of the mother who has lost her child, or the father who has lost his family. We know very well how painful it is to lose those you love.
You don’t know our martyrs, but we know them. You don’t remember them, but we remember them. You don’t cry over them, but we cry over them.
Have you heard the name of the little girl Hannan Salih Matrud? Or of the boy Ahmad Jabir Karim? Or Sa'id Shabram?
Yes, our dead have names too. They have faces and stories and memories. There was a time when they were among us, laughing and playing. They had dreams, just as you have. They had a tomorrow awaiting them. But today they sleep among us with no tomorrow on which to wake.
We don’t hate the British people or the peoples of the world. This war was imposed upon us, but we are now fighting it in defense of our selves. Because we want to live in our homeland – the free land of Iraq – and to live as we want to live, not as your government or the American government wish.
Let the families of those killed know that responsibility for the Thursday morning London bombings lies with Tony Blair and his policies. Stop your war against our people! Stop the daily killing that your troops commit! End your occupation of our homeland!
