'Iraqis are increasingly using Facebook as a platform to campaign for their favorite candidates in the 2010 parliamentary elections.
...On the National Iraqi Front’s page a woman named Wasan Wartan proclaims herself one of the secular voters whose support Mr. Allawi has sought in past elections. She wrote: “Hi everyone, God willing, the liberal Iraqi forces will win this time. God willing, Iraq will move towards a better future and the liberal parties will wipe all the tears off the face of Iraq.” Another member named Taha Tamimy wrote, “Amen, and we will get rid of the Iranians who destroyed our country.” '
What does Taha mean by "get rid of the Iranians"? This sounds like Saddam when he expelled tens of thousands of Iraqis (aka ethnic cleansing) because they were of Iranian descent. I doubt Allawi, being Shiite, would allow that to happen again, but it is frightening to see Arabs still saying inflammatory (and quite stupid) things and again blaming the wrong people for the violence in Iraq. The Iranians have condemned the recent bombings in Baghdad, and the Arab "resistance" continues to mass murder innocent Iraqis, primarily targeting government, including the Iranian embassy, but killing mostly civilians.
