Sunnis Call for Iraq Vote Boycott to Protest Iranian Meddling

 

"We are shocked at the vile and brazen interventionist mutterings of [Iranian President] Ahmadinidjad. We believe that holding the elections under such circumstances is against the interests of our people and consistent with the wishes of Iran's rulers."

Ahmed Chalabi (above) is one of Iraq's most divisive figures, who is said to have been the source of the faulty information the Bush Administration used to invade in 2003. He was later cut off by the Bush White House for 'unauthorized contacts with Iran.' He now heads Iraq's Accountability and Justice Commission, which is charged with disqualifying former members of Saddam's Baathist Party from standing in Iraq's national elections on March 7.

At a time when Iraq and its people need to focus most on the national interest rather than religious separatism; at a time when the hopes of Iraqis and all people who support their aspirations are for halting the barbaric massacres of innocents; at a time when there is hope for holding democratic elections with the participation of all national parties; we are shocked at the vile and brazen interventionist mutterings of [Iranian President] Ahmadinidjad. As Ahmadinidjad put it on Feb. 11, he would not allow Baathists to return to the political process in Iraq.

[Editor's Note: The man who wrote this statement, Sheikh Ali al-Dulaimi, is the leader of the Al-Hatm clan and was a member of the Awakening Councils of Al-Anbar Province. Many observers credit these Sunni tribal groups - more than the American surge - with finally getting a handle on the violence that plagued the country after the fall of Saddam].

 

This is nothing but a cover for removing popular and respected individuals from the political process. The extent of the conspiracy became clear with Chalabi's last-minute disqualification of candidates (photo box, right), which is widely considered his most recent "political ploy." Therefore, the Central Council of Iraqi and Arab Tribal Sheikhs strongly condemn this vile interference with the sovereignty of Iraq. This is an attempt to restore terrorism, massacre and the spillage of the most innocent blood. We therefore ask all patriotic Iraqis to protest these treacherous attempts and interrupt the scuttling of the political process for the sake of restoring religious separatism.

We believe that holding the elections under such circumstances is against the interests of our people and consistent with the wishes of Iran's rulers. We therefore call on all people to boycott the voting. We call upon all relevant international bodies, particularly the United Nations, to rapidly intervene to prevent a disruption in Iraq's political process and a return to massacres and religious separatism.
