Anyone who doubts that Hizbullah is a Shi`ite sectarian party, should read this lousy statement by the party in defense of Grand Ayatullah Sistani--the biggest help to the American occupation of Iraq, more than `Allawi and Chalabi combined. The text of the statement is so reverentially phrased: it talks about Sistani and adds: "may his shadow last." The man does not even have a shadow: he donated it to the American occupation of the country. It states that harming Sisistani is like harming the party. There is no theory to explain this except the requirements of Shi`ite sectarian solidarity.
WOW. Sistani was the "biggest help" to the American occupation of Iraq, according to the clueless professor in California. How did this schmuck become a professor?? Did Sistani help Americans by promoting peace and repeatedly calling for an end to violence? Yes he did.
Or did Sistani help the American "occupation" by forbidding violent reprisals as Sunni Arab terrorists continue to mass murder Iraqis? Yes he did!
Sistani is the top Shia cleric who called for unity and said in 2007: "I appeal to you to leave aside your divisions with your Sunni brothers."
But As'ad Abu Khara has never mentioned Sistani's efforts to end the violence in Iraq.
Yes Sistani did help Americans to stabilize Iraq by encouraging the Shia to not attack innocent Sunni Arabs, even as Sunni Arab terrorism continues. Was that wrong of Sistani to do? Or is As'ad Abu Khara and the Sunni Arabs still pissed that Sistani, with his great influence in Iraq, did not call on the Iraqi Shia to kill Americans? Boo hoo, As'ad Abu Khara! Americans liberated Iraq (albeit 12 years late) when most Sunni Arabs wanted to see Iraqis to continue living under the Sunni boot of tyranny.
Americans hunted down the mass murderer of Iraqis and put him on trial for crimes against humanity. Americans stuck around to ensure that democracy, or a semblance of one, was established in Iraq as Sunni extremists tried to destroy it. Americans trained Iraqi security forces and helped Iraqis defeat a nasty Sunni insurgency that was willing to kill dozens of Iraqi children in order to kill one American.
Sunni Arab extremists (the "resistance") continue to mass murder Iraqis several months after US troops withdrew from Iraqi cities. The "resistance" is still trying to destroy democracy in Iraq. They still fight "occupation" by mass murdering Iraqis. But As'ad Abu Khara does not condemn the murderers. Instead he bitches about "occupation" and condemns the cleric who called for peace and unity in Iraq. These are our Arab "brothers". It makes me sick!
