Shame and dishonor to those who undertook and
executed the crime against the Imam Ali Al Hadi Holy Shrine!
Masses of our Great Iraqi People!
Once again the organized crime hands are spread to reach
out to our sacrosanct shrines and to attack in a debased and degraded way the
holy shrine of the Imam Ali al Hadi in Samarra in a treacherous new attempt to
enflame a sectarian war which will rescue the Occupation from its killer trap
and stop the series of its defeats and its routs the world all over started
witnessing in the day light. Those who undertook and executed this hideous
crime are the Badr Brigades, the Iranian stooges, encouraged by the
US forces. Yes indeed! Both have the mutual interests to modify the course
of events in Iraq to rescue their threatened interests. The US which admitted
its impotency to vanquish the Resistance, inspite of all the
genocidal operations and the destruction undertaken against the cities and towns
of the Revolution and after their failure to infiltrate the Resistance and sow
rumors against the Party and its unity, the US appears certainly as the one
which has the biggest fundamental benefit from exciting civil unrest. Yes!
Indeed! Ye masses of our great people, the cadres and the supporters of our
combating Party, all these attempts were wrecked and the Party remained the
vanguard of the Mujahideens and has strengthened its Jihadi position through
widening and intensifying the scope of the armed operations, while the
Resistance foiled the attempts to divide its unity or to steal its name. It has
also routed and defeated the attempts to use some mercenaries from amongst the
tribal leaders against the Resistance. This is why the Occupation found itself
facing a greater and more dangerous trap of the one it was facing... and so it
goes, using once and again the colonialist traditional debased and degraded
means and ways sowing the seeds of civil war and excites sectarian strife.
O ye heroic masses of Iraq!
It is the US and only the US which is the number one
responsible of the crime against the Imam Ali Al Mahdi - Peace be upon him -
holy shrine, not only because it is occupying Iraq and is responsible of
whatever goes on in this country but also seen from the angle of planning the
crime and the ones who have the greatest interest into undertaking it. As for
Iran, it is the natural US partner in this crime as in all the previous ones,
before the occupation and until now. Yes! Iran has uncovered its last criminal
cards in its attempts to use our brothers and families in the south as a fire
wood for its wars and a tool to find a solution to its differences with the US
on the soil of Iraq. That is why we heard from some of those who consider
Kahmenei and Kadhim Haeeri and others as their sectarian reference announce in
absolute stupidity and idiotic behavior that if Iran was attacked their
supporters will attack the US in Iraq! This kind of a homeland treason makes
some of these shut up about the occupation of Iraq and its crimes while some
others participates into supporting the Occupation, execute its crimes and
destroy Iraq but announces at the same time that it will use force to defend
Iran? Today all the cards which used to be denied and concealed from the Iraqi
people in general and specially from our people in the south, have been
Freedom lovers of Iraq!
The programmed escalation between the US and Iran has found
in Iraq its fundamental arena for you can find there, massive numbers of
stooges who are now holding a government through which it can exercise pressure
on the US using Iraqi blood and their homeland future! Iran has set a plan to
drown the US into Iraq quagmire to prevent it from affecting its nuclear project
specially, when the US is about to arrange its withdrawal through signing oil
and strategic long-term binding agreements, and which thinks that without the
involvement of some (Sunni) parties in the government, these arrangements have
no future. This is why limiting Iran agents influence has become one of the most
important US arrangements. This requirement was lately and frankly announced by
the US ruler Zalmay himself ordering that no sectarian will be in charge of the
Defense and Interior ministries! Also the US started to leak information it was
concealing and hiding, about the Badr Brigadeĺs crimes and the Ministry of
Interior, the Iraqis call now (Solagh's drill Ministry) for these criminals use
the electric drill just like their US masters to torture patriot Iraqis - a
translator note). That is why it was of Iran's interest to attack the Islamic
holy Shiite shrine, now for the most required is to rally the people of the
southern Iraq behind the Iranian position, and to defend Iran through
intensifying the pressure on the US. This requirement however is rather
difficult to obtain for the squashing majority of our people in southern Iraq
has discovered Iran's plan to destroy Iraq, to dismember it and to annex its
southern part in the name of the (Al Hakim) federation! For these reasons, there
was a great need to gather the ranks of the people in southern Iraq to submit to
Iran through undertaking an unprecedented crime, which is to attack a holy
shrine in an area which is not Shia to accuse the Sunnis for such a crime and to
push towards an immediate sectarian unrest which guarantees Iran a sufficient
support to keep the US busy in Iraq and alleviate the US pressure from its back,
thus achieving one of the most important and the oldest US objective which is to
Dignified and intrepid sons and daughters of Iraq!
You do remember when Iran stooges and in particular the
Jaafari government undertook in the past similar crimes to this new one. Yes!
You remember the crimes of Al Mussayab Garage area, when their crimes
targeted the Honorable Imams Bridge's killings thousands of Iraqi innocents, the
Haydari, the Kadhimi and the Husseiny holy shrines, and tried to accuse others
to unify their ranks which have started to tear away. Today they desperately
need to undertake a more hideous and horrible crime to confront the US menace
against their government in Iraq from one hand and from the other, to alleviate
the pressure from their highest Marja'ya which is Iran.
Freedom loving religious scholars!
Our Party asserts that the attack and the crime against the
Imam Ali Al Hadi Holy Shrine is the deed of the Iran agents backed by the
US which wants to implicate forcibly (Sunni) parties into the political process
and this objective can be achieved quickly to intensify pressure on known Sunni
Parties through enflaming a limited sectarian unrest. That is why we call upon
all the religious Marjay'at -centers to bear full religious and patriotic
responsibility through asserting that those who executed such a crime the
ones who have an interest into dislocating Iraq, and there is nobody else's
biggest interest than US' and Iran's. For these reasons it is necessary to
confront this plan with the highest resolution and responsibility, to expose it
and make known those involved, in order to master emotional and hasty reactions.
Iraq advances steadily towards routing the Occupation, and
this is a reality which imposes on us all to hold on to the wisdom, and to the
highest patriotic awareness, to isolate all agents and support the Resistance
for it is the only hope to safeguard the unity of Iraq and to liberate it from
Dishonor and shame to Iran criminal agents!
Dishonor and shame to US Zionism, the enemy of Iraq, the
enemy of the Arabs and the enemy of the Muslims!
Glory to the Iraqi national Resistance the sole and only
representative of the Iraqi people!
May the Crime against the Imam Ali Al Hadi be an added
reason to strengthen the unity of Iraqis!
