Hello everyone

Hello I just wanted to say hello. I will post more sometime soon but electricity is not always good and it is too hot. I feel lazy and tired but not sleeping enough.

1 Rajab and 14 Tammuz

Today on the Islam calendar is 1 Rajab which is the first day of the month of Rajab and also the birthday of Imam Mohammad al-Baqir. Back in the year 2003 on this day, 1 Rajab (29 August in 2003), at the shrine of Imam Ali in the holy city of Najaf, a big car bomb explosion killed Ayatollah Sayyid Mohammad Baqir al-Hakim and very many other people.

Sayyid Mohammad Baqir al-Hakim was the son of the Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Mohsen al-Hakim and brother of the SIIC leader Sayyid Abdul-Aziz al-Hakim. Sayyid Mohammad Baqir al-Hakim was the leader of SCIRI (now it is SIIC) before he was killed. I remember he came back to Iraq one month after Saddam regime was finished and many people came out to greet him. But it did not take long for Sunni terrorists to give a message that they always want to give – we hate the Shi’a, we hate Shi’ite holy places, we hate Shi’ite holy men. And so on the first day of Rajab at the holy site they killed so many people.

Sayyid Mohammad Baqir al-Hakim was a scholar and also a very good speaker. His brother who is now SIIC leader is not a good speaker like him. The Hakim family fought Saddam and many Hakims were killed by Saddam. Still today many of the Hakims live in Iran but some have come back to Iraq. The Hakims in Iran still think of their identity as Iraqi, and actually some of them (like some who have come back to Iraq after Saddam’s end) speak Arabic and maybe not much Farsi.

Before I wrote about bloody beginning that tell us a lot of information, and how Moqtada showed himself as a bloody anti-religious criminal on April 10, 2003 just as the Ba’th Party showed itself as brutal and murderous from its first days in taking power in Iraq. Well this crime showed us something that most people probably knew. It said that the Wahhabi terrorists (who are supported by many radical Sunnis) hate all of the Shi’a and their holy men and holy places. It is like the attacks in Samarra but more bloody and wanting to kill many people as possible. Of course since the martyring of Sayyid Mohammad Baqir al-Hakim there have been many giant attacks on Shi’ite holy places and thousands of Shi’a killed by Wahhabi terrorists (also working with Saddam followers).

So also another day just was here, 14 Tammuz (14 July) which is the day that Iraq became a republic. Some people say it is the national holiday for Iraq, but it has some interesting history and Iraq is not a place where a national holiday has parties and parades. I will write later about 14 Tammuz and the republic that came instead of the old monarchy.

After USA leaves Iraq

So I am still very tired. There is news but it is all the same. People talk about a new government and maybe the plotter Allawi coming as the new ruler. But remember that the people have been saying this (rumors) for over a year. Of course Allawi is trying to work with everyone including Sunni terrorist politicians and the Kurdish Sunni extremist because he always wants power. But still the people who did fight Saddam hard (Hakim and Da'wa and Kurdish parties) are together and if they beat Saddam then I do not think Allawi can beat them! So this is not truly news, just old stories back again. Also more killings, and this is not news for many years. And heat. And still I am not smoking much and in a week I have had two cigarettes.

I think that the USA will leave Iraq sometime or many of the American soldiers will leave. Then what is going to happen? I do not like the American army in Iraq and making checkpoints and driving around and I do not think anyone would like another nation army to be in their cities and homes. So what will happen when the USA will leave?

I do not think Baghdad would be better. Right now the Sunni terrorists will attack the Americans and the Shi'a, so only the Shi'a will be attacked. Also the Americans try to stop some of the Shi'a from attacking Sunnis (sometimes innocent ones and sometimes terrorists) so without the Americans the Shi'ite fighters will be more powerful. What does that mean?

In Baghdad it means more fighting but also some areas can be safer if the Shi'ite militias can act like they want. In other areas like last year in February probably some groups like the Mahdi Army will commit crimes against innocent Sunnis and more violence will be there. In the south of Iraq I think that the Shi'ite groups should take over security and be very tough. It is necessary to make sure that the people are safe and the shrines in Najaf and Karbala are not atacked like in Samarra. The Iraqi forces or the other armed groups like Badr should make many checkpoint and check everyone coming to the south. This is how north Iraq with the peshmerga is usually without big bombings like in Baghdad and other places in Iraq. Better to have safety somewhere in Iraq than nowhere in Iraq.

Al-Qa'ida is strong so the USA will hopefully hurt them before they leave. The solution for the south of Iraq is important to keep al-Qa'ida from coming there. Hopefully less Qa'ida will be around in Baghdad or in Anbar (killed) because we know that they will come from Anbar to Baghdad to hurt all the people and the government.

When the USA leaves also I think other countries will try to be stronger in Iraq. This means especially Iran and Saudi Arabia and Arabs. Iran is supporting many people and without the USA will be less scared. Saudi Arabia already has its people coming as terrorists and other Arabs support the terrorists. Jordan hates the Shi'a and has said this and same with Egypt so without the USA these Arab countries will try to hurt the Shi'a and the government. Iraq is a site of battle for everyone unfortunately, without many Americans there I think there will just be more of others coming to fight their own fights in Baghdad. None of them care about Iraq or Iraqis, and usually they hate Iraqis or at least hate the Shi'a.

I thought after Saddam Iraq would be good and free and strong, but many people do not want this and now it is a war every day. Some day I hope Iraq is strong and has peace and can deal with the other countries in the area and teach a lesson to them if they want to hurt Iraqis. I think I will write later about all of the countries near Iraq and how they hurt Iraq. Iraq is a country with rivers and holy places and deserts and mountains and history and many kinds of different people. But it is surrounded by bastards and criminals.

Bloody beginnings

There is a lot to write about but and some of it is new but not surprising. Over the last week there have been many things happening with Sunni terrorist politicians in the Iraqi government. One minister had an arrest issued for him, Minister of Culture As'ad Kamal al-Hashimi, for planning the kill of an anti-Ba'thist politician Mithal al-Alousi which actually killed his two sons. Other Sunni politicians protested and many Sunni politicians decided to stop working in the government (instead of working with the government in day and working with terrorists in night). One politician Abdul-Nasser al-Janabi said he will join "the resistance" which means that he will be a more active terrorist and stop pretending to also support the Iraqi government. Also a big bastard named Mish'an al-Jabouri was kicked out of the parliament but he has stolen many millions of dollars and has not been in Iraq for a long time. Also I heard that another Sunni politician who was with Talabani has left Iraq, his name is Wafiq al-Samarra'i and he was an advisor to Talabani. Before he was a top man in intelligence in Saddam time so what the hell is he doing in a new Iraqi government?

Still as I said before this is not new and everyone can guess this would happen. A terrorist is a terrorist if he is wearing a suit in a Green Zone office or a dishdasha in a dirty house in Anbar or carrying a gun in the street. This is not any surprise.

Still instead I want to write something about what I wrote yesterday, "The Untold Story" and the killing of Sayyid Abdul-Majid al-Khoei. Bloody and dangerous movements do not keep secret how they are, not for long. Maybe you do not realize at the time what it is you see but later you do realize it. When the Ba'th Party came to power the first time in 1963, it was a bloody revolt against Abdul-Karim Qassem (who replaced the kings). I can write more about Qassim a different time but now I will just say it was very bloody and showed how this Ba'th Party is a party of killers and criminals. So it was not a surprise that it got worse and worse and Saddam came to power later and killed so many people. Now we should see another bloody beginning. When Saddam regime was ended on April 9, 2003 I remember that people were hopeful, happy, scared, confused but most important some hopeful. But everyone was confused and one person who did not wait a long time to try to get his power was Moqtada, and one day later his group killed Sayyid Abdul-Majid al-Khoei. This is a bloody beginning to kill the son of the Grand Ayatollah in front of hundreds of people, brutal with many knifes, dragging his body in the holiest place in the holy city! So we should know how is this Moqtada, a young child and not a senior religious holy man, who tried so soon to get power and kill other people even if they are holy men in holy places. Soon then after April 9, 2003 you see his men in black running around Baghdad saying that they will find Saddam (who was hiding) and also talking about Islamic government. Even now Moqtada will sometime talk about unity for Shi'a and Sunnis but also we know that his men have killed many innocent Sunni people. He just wants power and many people support him because, as I said before, sometimes his men are protecting them. I will maybe write more about him another time but now I would just like to say that a bloody beginning can tell you a lot, and the anti-religion crime that happened in Najaf on April 10, 2003 is a bloody beginning that should tell us about Moqtada.

"The Untold Story" of assassination of the Sayyid Abdul Majid al-Khoei

One Iraqi blog site called Last-Of-Iraqis wrote The Complete Story of Moqtada and Al-Mahdi Army and wrote about the killing of Sayyid Abdul-Majid al-Khoei. We know how the ending of Saddam regime ended one time when the government was killing many Iraqis in a very organized way. But the end of Saddam regime became soon a time when killing without organization happens to so many people. It was not so bad right when the end of regime happened, but the first big and sad event happened on the second day of Iraq after Saddam in the holy city Najaf. Sayyid Abdul-Majid al-Khoei was killed. Sayyid Abdul-Majid al-Khoei was the leader of a charity group named for his father, who was before Sayyid Sistani the most important Shi'ite cleric in the world. Moqtada al-Sadr and his group did this horrible killing of the son of the man who was the world's most important Shi'ite leader, who also fought Saddam and worked for his people. Any person who has respect for the marja'iya and the holy places should not forget this.

Now on the blog Eye Raki (he has written comments on my homesite) there is a post with many detail about the killing of Sayyid Abdul-Majid al-Khoei and you should read it. There are also pictures. Here is the link:

Maybe sometime I will write some more about this killing and the different people who were involved. Read this story.
