The Imam of the Sunni Mosque of Abu Hanifah in Baghdad sharply attacked the newly appointed puppet so-called "government" of Iraq in a Friday sermon. Shaykh Ahmad as-Samarra'i said that it was the "embodiment of American hegemony" in Iraq and that a transfer of sovereignty to Iraqis could not take place in the shadow of an American veto.
The Sunni religious leader said, "they call this 'an election,' but it isn't an election. It's nothing but American hegemony. Whomever they [the Americans] want is a part of it; whomever they don't want is kicked out."
Agence France Presse (AFP) reported Shaykh as-Samarra'i as asking, "Where is the 'Iraqi sovereignty' if decisions having to do with security matters are subject to an American veto? Where is the 'Iraqi sovereignty' when the US says that its forces are going to remain in Iraq?"
The Shaykh went on: "They promise us that after seven months there will be a new legal code and an election. But how can this come about when [American] hegemony dominates those who write, when there is supervision over every committee. . . . They want to have a joke at our expense."
"There is no sovereignty if security affairs are in other hands than ours. There is no sovereignty if military affairs are in other hands than ours. There is no sovereignty if the oil affairs are in other hands than ours," reiterated the Imam of the Abu Hanifah mosque.
Muqtada As-Sadr: US-Appointed "Prime Minister" Is A CIA Agent. New Iraqi "Government" Has No Authority
In a Friday sermon delivered on his behalf by Jabir al-Khafaji in the Mosque of al-Kufah, Shi'i religious leader Muqtada as-Sadr attacked the newly installed American puppet "government." According to al-Jazeera satellite TV, as-Sadr described Iyyad 'Allawi, the newly appointed puppet so-called "prime minister," as an "American CIA agent."
Agence France Presse (AFP) quoted as-Sadr as sharply rejecting the new puppet so-called "government", saying that it had no authority over him. As-Sadr said, "I declare that I will have nothing to do with this government until Judgement Day because the people reject it." As-Sadr added, "our government must be legally elected. The Iraqi people will never accept a government appointed by the occupier."
As-Sadr declared: "I can't imagine any rational person or any religious authority accepting this appointment. I will have nothing to do with this government".
Puppet Inspection Unit Established To Protect American Invaders From Resistance Attacks
Eyewitnesses in Baghdad reported that the newly created Iraqi puppet "army" had established a unit for special inspections in the area between an-Nu'ayriyah and al-Amin behind the "New Baghdad" district. This unit in fact was engaged in searching passing cars, resulting in a tight traffic jam as cars backed up for great distances to be subjected to extensive searches in the Iraqi capital.
The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported that the inspection unit set up by the puppet army was created in response to the repeated blows delivered by the Iraqi Resistance on a daily basis particularly in the area of the puppet strongpoint at the so-called "military college" which is also the US occupation forces' headquarters in that district of the occupied Iraqi capital.
