Concerning the "Referendum" Boycott
To all Iraqis
and masses of the Nation
Arab sons and
daughters in the Liberation Battle,
Today the plot to
divide Iraq and to wipe out its Arab identity has entered its founding and
dangerous phase, through imposing a US dividing constitution based on
sectarianism and racism, a constitution written by the Zionist Noah Feldman,
while Paul Bremer the US civil governor declared it, a legal foundation for
(occupied) Iraq. It no wonder why the US Ambassador, his President and his
Secretary of State; are practicing direct pressures to fasten its endorsement,
interfering in every details of its so called debate; offering every possible
bribes mixed with threats to those who refuse the draft of this US constitution,
or those who oppose some of its articles, to force them to get involved in the
plot of dividing Iraq.
At the same time
the malicious US and its stooges of the Barzani militias in the North and the
Safawides in the South are planning to impose a federal system which will turn
Iraq into a centrally marginal entity, where the strong federations governments
will enjoy the true authority, militarily, securitywise, economically and
culturally, while the central government will be nothing but a mere coordinator
in between these made up entities.
of the Second al Qadissiyah, the Mother of all Battles and the Decisive Battle!
will set a legal foundation to divide Iraq and to wipe out its Arab identity,
through denying its Arab character, -Arabs constitutes 85 per cent of its
inhabitants- through categorizing and tearing away its citizens in between Sunni
and Shia and treat them on a sectarian background and not on a national and
patriotic foundations giving millions of non Iraqi Iranians and Kurds, the Iraqi
nationality, in order to make the Occupied Iraq components inhabitants equally
balanced. This could lead later to set a constitution which doesn't mention for
the first time ever in the history of the modern Iraq State, that Iraq is an
integral part of the Arab Nation, imposing a stipulating that Iraq is " a multi-
national and multi-sectarian" state and that "only" the Arab people of Iraq is a
part of the Arab nation.
Proud Sons and
Daughters of Iraq!
Constitution will get Iraq into a great impasse, internally and externally.
Internally the Barzani-Talabani militias in the north and the Safawides
(Iranians militias in the South) will be "armies" protecting the two Kurdish and
Safawi federations and the elite government will turn there into governments
with full powers, while the national wealth will be divided in between these two
governments to provide a material assets for the division and consecrate the
racism in the North and the sectarianism in the South through overwhelming
sectarian and ethnical cleansing. Iraq thus will be cut into three entities
practically independent, even though framed in a link. Externally, endorsing
the constitution will give the new US imposed state of affairs, an international
recognition, specially that the US is using every pressure and means to pressure
and to buy consciences and to bribe every ruler, and this will lead to an
extremely dangerous situation, for the liberation of Iraq from the US
colonialism and the attempt of a patriot government to impose its authority on
Iraq after its liberation, will be met by an international refusal, and make the
Security Council issue resolutions to protect these separatist entities and
provide them with every kind of support, including the military support beside
the legal Arab official cover.
people all over the world..
Ye Militants in the Iraq of Arabism and Islam!
Referendum day, on the constitution draft, is a US, and Iranian fundamental
necessity to provide a legal cover to tear and piece away Iraq and change it
into three separate protectorates, submitted to the US-Iranian alliance. If any
one thinks that he is able to foil this Constitution through participating into
the referendum is wrong, dead wrong! For he ignores two essential truths: the
first truth is the US which invaded and destroyed the State of advanced Iraq,
have come with a project to divide it and turn it into three useless states, to
facilitate its colonization and its loot from one hand and from the other to get
rid of its national liberation system; that is why the US will not permit any
legal frame opposing their stay, their occupation and their barbarian invasion
of Iraq. The US will squash any attempt to foil the constitution through the
The second truth
being that the US have prepared every mean to falsify the Referendum resolution,
including in Central Iraq whatever will be the numbers or the quality of
participation in this referendum; and whatever will be the popular refusal, the
results are already well known and the referendum will be endorsed in a very
comfortable proportion serving the US Zionist new-old plan to get international
legitimacy. The one who participates into the referendum will give legal cover
to the occupation, and provide it with internal weapons, which will hurt the
national and pan Arab present, and future. He will provide it with extremely
dangerous external weapons, which will hurt gravely the Arab and Islamic Nation
and will, constitutes a dangerous precedent threatening the national security
and stability, with the blessing of the Security Council and the United Nations.
Remember the International Thirty countries aggression against Iraq in
1990-1991. This is an example of what could happen to Iraq after the
liberation, if the Constitution is endorsed.
Civilizations of Sumer, Babylon and Assur, and the Islamic Arab Civilization in
Baghdad of al Rashid!
The fate of Iraq
stands now on two fundamental elements that are the Armed Resistance, the Iraqi
shield, its Arab Islamic protector, and the Iraqi people masses, which are
supporting the Resistance in whatever ways and means. When the Resistance
increases and widen its military operations, the Zionist Constitution will get
lost and at the same time the referendum boycott by all Iraqis, will be a
decisive response to the plot and a true practical support to the Resistance
liberating action and a historical choice to be in the global liberation trench,
and a strategic attitude which will prevent creating problems inside Iraq after
the Liberation, and also it will prevent the US from using the International
legal cover to implement its hatred and destructive plans.
reckon that the US will impose the Constitution what ever is the case, must
remember that the boycott of the majority of Iraqis will disapprove the
legitimacy of the results in spite of the US and Zionist manipulations, in front
of the public opinion inside and outside Iraq, helping every one who wants to
back the liberated Iraq to refuse the US Zionist plan and encourage the world
against the Resistance endeavor to rebuild the unified Republic of Iraq and not
a broken up Iraq on sectarian and racist basis. That is why the National Arab
Leadership "pan Arab leadership" launches a call to all Iraqis who are caring
about the unity, the future and the Arabism of Iraq, to boycott the referendum
and to not participate in the vote, under whatever pressures and challenges.
Also we call upon
the Arab Nation masses to stand seriously against this ugly plot, which targets
all the nation before targeting Iraq, as a country and as Homeland, and
to declare their refusal of this US Zionist plan and ask the Arab regimes to
condemn it and to respect the will of the Resistant Iraq which refuses the
occupation, its stooges and all its creations inside militant Iraq!
Long live Iraq,
free, unified, as a country and as homeland!
Long live Iraqi
Armed Resistance, the shield of Iraq and its loyal guard!
Mujahid Saddam Hussein, may the Lord free him from his enemies!
He is the
symbol of the resurrected, unified and free Iraq!
