Protestors in al-Fallujah demand Sunni collaborationist “National Accord Front” resign from puppet “Parliament” since it is doing nothing but legitimize the sectarian regime.
In a dispatch posted on its website Wednesday, Quds Press reported that hundreds of residents of al-Fallujah took to the streets on Wednesday to demand that the Sunni “Accord Front” deputies to the puppet “Parliament” resign.
The correspondent for Quds Press reported that the protest march set off from the al-Furqan Mosque and wound its way to the headquarters of the collaborationist Sunni sectarian “Islamic Party” in al-Fallujah – a headquarters that was burned down last year in protest against the pro-American party’s decision to vote for the American-imposed “Constitution” – which was written by American lawyer Noah Feldman.
The “National Accord Front” coalition was created in October 2005 and consists of the “Islamic Party,” the “General Council for the People of Iraq,” the “Iraq National Dialogue Council” and other Sunni sectarian parties and individuals who united under the claim that the way to protect Iraq’s Sunni population from the rampant Shi‘i sectarianism fostered by the United States, was to join in the American-run “political process” and participate in the regimes set up under American auspices. The coalition occupies 44 seats in the puppet “Parliament” and members also hold seats in the cabinet of puppet “Prime Minister” Nuri al-Maliki.
Shaykh Muhammad ‘Aftan, one of the organizers of Wednesday’s protest march, told the correspondent for Quds Press: “the deputies of the ‘National Accord’ have failed to lift the blockade imposed on al-Fallujah three years ago and it’s become clear that they are a plague on the Sunnis. Their participation [in the puppet regime and its political process] just gives legitimacy to the sectarian government, nothing else. The killing has increased, the expulsions of people continue and they cannot do anything significant about it. The constitution hasn’t been changed, the security situation hasn’t got any better, there are no public services, and they acknowledge in their speeches that they cannot push forward or hold back this government. So what are they staying in it for, then?”
Quds Press noted that the “Accord Front” joined the US-imposed “political process” promising in the last “parliamentary election” campaign at the end of 2005 to improve the security situation and public services and to change the constitution. Quds Press reported that in the year and a half since the “Accord Front” joined the US-run political process and then the puppet “governments,” the Sunni population of Iraq has seen no evidence of any improvement in their situation and as a result the popularity of the “Accord Front” has greatly deteriorated.
Iraqi Resistance organization threatens attacks on any members of the puppet “Parliament” who vote to pass US-sponsored law on Iraqi oil export.
In a dispatch posted at 9:19pm Baghdad time Wednesday evening, the Association of Muslim Scholars of Iraq (AMSI) reported that the Iraqi Resistance organization “The Brigades of the 1920 Revolution” denounced the draft “Law on Oil” currently before the puppet “Iraqi Parliament,” calling the measure “a tool to enable the United States to steal Iraq’s oil wealth.”
The AMSI reported that the 1920 Brigades issued a declaration in which they threatened to target any of the members of the puppet “Parliament” who vote for the bill.
The 1920 Brigades’ statement, which was published on the Internet, said that the law “poses a grave danger to our future and represents the attainment by the occupation of one of the goals for which it occupied our country.” The statement warned all those who play any role in the ratification of the bill that “we will regard them as complicit in this ignominious action and they will not escape the punishment of the Mujahideen.”
The AMSI stated in its report that Washington has been pressuring the puppet “government” and “parliament” in Baghdad to hasten the passage of the draft law and of other measures “to facilitate America’s vile aims in Iraq.”
The statement by the 1920 Brigades said that “by the grace of God, the occupation has been stumbling and has found itself in a mess” thanks to the accurate and deadly blows of the Iraqi Resistance. This has impelled the US to try to accelerate its drive to plunder our wealth by means of legalized international theft carried out by getting its puppet government and parliament to decree and ratify the so-called Law on Oil.”
The Brigades of the 1920 Revolution declared in their statement: “We will try by all means to prevent the theft of our resources via all possible routes.”
AMSI noted that Iraq has the third-largest oil reserves in the world
