    Hamid Buffy: per constituency strengthen the sense of national belonging and make MP representing the whole of Iraq
    30-07-2013 | (صوت العراق) - 30-07-2013 | (Voice of Iraq)

    قال النائب عن التحالف الكردستاني د.حميد بافي ان اعتماد نظام الدائرة الانتخابية الواحدة يعزز الانتماء الوطني ويجعل النائب يمثل العراق كله نظرياً وعملياً وليس ممثلا لمحافظته فقط . The MP said the Kurdistan Alliance d. Hamid Buffy that the adoption of a single constituency system enhances the sense of national belonging and makes the MP representing the whole of Iraq in theory and practice and is not representative of his province only.

    وأوضح في تصريح صحفي :" ان الدستور العراقي يؤكد (في المادة 49/ أولاً) أنه (يتكون مجلس النواب من عدد من الأعضاء بنسبة مقعد واحد لكل مائة ألف نسمة من نفوس العراق ، يمثلون الشعب العراقي بأكمله ، يتم انتخابهم بطريق الاقتراع العام السري المباشر ، ويراعى تمثيل سائر مكونات الشعب فيه) ، كما أن عضو المجلس يؤدي اليمين الدستورية (حسب المادة 50 من الدستور) مقسماً بالله العلي العظيم أن يحافظ على استقلال العراق وسيادته ، ويرعى مصالح شعبه ، ويسهر على سلامة أرضه وسمائه ومياهه وثرواته ونظامه الديمقراطي الاتحادي ". He explained in a press statement: "The Iraqi constitution confirms (in Article 49 / I) that (Council shall consist of Representatives of a number of members by one seat per one hundred thousand inhabitants of the population of Iraq, representing the Iraqi people as a whole, to be elected the path of universal suffrage by direct secret, and take into account the representation of other components of the people in it), and the council member sworn in (according to Article 50 of the Constitution) divided by God Almighty to preserve the independence and sovereignty of Iraq, and takes care of the interests of his people, and ensures the integrity of the land and sky, water, wealth and its democratic federal. "

    واضاف بافي :" من هنا يتضح بجلاء أن الدستور بنصه وروحه يؤكد أن عضو مجلس النواب يمثل الشعب كله ، فلابد إذاً أن تتاح الفرصة قانوناً لكل ناخب بأن يصوت لأي مرشح حسب رؤيته ورغبته في أية محافظة كان ، وداخل العراق كان أو خارجه ، حتى يكون المرشح المنتخب فعلاً ممثلاً لكل الشعب العراقي في كل المحافظات والأقاليم ، وهذا لا يتحقق إلا من خلال الدائرة الانتخابية الواحدة ". He added Buffy: "From here illustrated clearly that the Constitution letter and spirit confirms that a member of the House of Representatives representing the whole people, must, therefore, that the opportunity legally each voter to vote for any candidate by his vision and his desire in any province was, and inside Iraq was outside, so that the Candidate actually elect a representative for each of the Iraqi people in all the provinces and territories, and this can only be achieved through a single constituency. "

    وبين انه :" مما يلاحظ على النائب في الدوائر المتعددة أنه يتعلق بمحافظته ويدافع عنها ، وإن كان هذا أحياناً على حساب محافظات أخرى ، وذلك شعوراً منه بأنه يخدم ناخبيه ويوفي بتحقيق وعوده لهم ، مما يجعل حالة التشرذم والمناطقية هي السائدة على رؤى المجلس وقراراته وعلى مقترحات القوانين ومشاريعها ، وهذا الأمر يحدث خللاً واضحاً في مواقف النواب وممارساتهم داخل المؤسسة التشريعية إزاء المواقف الوطنية والقضايا العامة والمصالح العليا للشعب ". And that: "It is noted on the MP in circles multiple it relates to بمحافظته and defended, although this is sometimes at the expense of other provinces, and that feeling from him that he serves his constituents and carry out the investigation of his promises to them, making fragmentation and regionalism is prevalent on the visions of the Council and its decisions and proposals laws and projects, and this happens a clear imbalance in the House of Representatives positions and practices within the organization at the national positions of legislative and public issues and the higher interests of the people. "

    وتابع بافي :" لذلك مطلوب منا جميعاً وخاصة المراجع وعلماء الدين ومؤسسات حقوق الإنسان ومنظمات المجتمع المدني ، وكل الخيرين وذوي التوجهات الإنسانية أن يدعموا ويساندوا (الدائرة الانتخابية الواحدة) التي توحد بين العراقيين وتجمع شملهم ، وتقرب بين أفكارهم وأهدافهم ، وتبعدهم عن شر التفرقة والشتات ، وعلى أن تكون القائمة مفتوحة، وأن تجري الإنتخابات وفق نظام يضمن التوازن والعدالة بين القوائم والكيانات والمكونات ". He continued Buffy: "So is required from all of us, especially the references and religious scholars and human rights institutions and civil society organizations, and all benevolent and minded humanity to support and uphold (constituency per), which unites Iraqis gathered respondents, and bring the ideas and objectives, and keep them from the evil of segregation and the Diaspora, The list should be open, and that the elections will be held according to the system ensures balance and justice among the lists, entities and components.

    Iraqi Politics Must Shake
    Legacy of Dictatorship

    By: Mustafa al-Kadhimi for Al-Monitor Iraq Pulse Posted on July 29.

    Do the members of the Iraqi political class believe in the slogans of democracy that they call for? This is a vital question in today's Iraq, where actual political practices often appear inconsistent with the democratic framework of the new Iraqi state.

    Summary :
    Although it has been 10 years since Saddam Hussein was ousted by US forces, Iraqi politics remain mired in the legacy of dictatorship.
    Original Title:
    Iraqi Politics ... Baathist Practices
    Author: Mustafa al-Kadhimi
    Posted on: July 29 2013
    Translated by: Tyler Huffman

    Categories : Originals Iraq


    In any normal democratic system, elections are an opportunity to show the level of competition between adversaries. However, elections are only one phase and one part of democracy. The stage characterized by accusations and collisions that accompanies elections shifts immediately following the elections to a stage of competition, this time within the framework of political achievement.

    The political tension that has characterized Iraq for years can be partially attributed to a misunderstanding of the essence of democracy as an exercise not restricted to just the ballot box.

    Interesting, Iraqi politicians don't appear "democratic," even though it has been ten years since a dictatorial regime was replaced with another, which, although democratic in form, is stilled mired in dictatorial practices.

    It seems strange to say that personal tensions between politicians can lead to a crises between their political blocs and extend to a crisis at the national level.

    We all remember the reconciliation meeting held between a number of political leaders on June 1, sponsored by Ammar al-Hakim, the leader of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq. At this meeting, Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and Parliament Speaker Osama al-Nujaifi shared an embrace, signaling the end of their months-long estrangement.

    This scene is a prime example for explaining some of the features of the Iraqi crisis. Politicians insist at every opportunity that their differences are not personal, but rather based on political and nationalistic positions. However, the reality is that personal conflict is deeply rooted in Iraqi politics, and these disputes could affect the essence of political practice.

    Democratic practices aren't just about putting aside personal feelings to open the doors of cooperation and understanding with others on a national basis. Rather, the nature of everyday democratic work should be linked to democratic behaviors and mechanisms.

    It seems that this is not happening in Iraq today. The majority of political parties are acting like opposition parties, and haven't overcome their focus on a charismatic leader. Furthermore, they have failed to implement a clear, democratic means of selecting party heads and leaders.

    Today, everyone has the right to ask: How can the Iraqi political class demand a peaceful handover of power in Iraq, when such a rotation is not actually happening within these parties themselves?

    Even more, democratic practices are still facing stiff resistance from the foundations of the state. The state's institutions and traditions are firmly clinging to their totalitarian heritage, which has left its mark even on those new political leaders who came to power via democratic means.

    This paradox needs to be addressed in a very radical way. In 2003, the "deep state" was defined as representing the Baath Party, and since that time, "de-Baathification laws" have been put in place in order to give the state an opportunity for democratic transformation. However, this definition was incomplete — we must realize that the Baath Party wasn't just a group of individuals, but a culture that was able to entrench itself in the state through different mechanisms and methods. Thus, the de-Baathification process requires a culture of democracy to weaken the Baathist culture’s roots.

    The Iraqi political class has not promoted democracy as a culture. Rather, many politicians withdrew to become "Baathists" in practice, even in the extremism with which they dealt with the Baath Party issue and the legacy of the old regime.

    Today, Iraq is approaching new elections in early 2014. Politicians are exchanging accusations, saying that the behavior and attitudes of their opponents are merely meant to gain them favor in the upcoming elections. While this is acceptable, what is not acceptable is for these elections to become the only face of democracy, and for this political exercise to reproduce the Baath party, whether in a religious or a nationalistic form.

    Mustafa al-Kadhimi is an Iraqi writer specializing in defense of democracy. He has extensive experience in documenting testimony and archiving documentaries associated with repressive practices.

    Kurdish National Conference: A Historical Event for the Kurds

    Analysis

    By Dr Kemal Kirkuki

    Last week, 39 Kurdish political groups gathered in Erbil under the auspices of Kurdistan Region President Massoud Barzani for preliminary talks about a National Conference. This gathering rekindled Kurdish hopes of achieving all of their national ambitions, and could go down as an historical day.

    Throughout decades of struggle in the region, the Kurds have always been eager to maintain the peaceful nature of their fight. And the main goal of this National Conference is to tell the world that the Kurds -- who have their own culture, language and land -- want to live in peace with their neighbors.

    The Kurds aim to tell through this conference that, as a people who have gone through persecution and genocide, they have the same right as every other nation to decide their own future, based on democratic principles and coexistence.

    For many years a giant media machine has been in motion to distort the Kurdish image and convey false messages about our struggle and sacrifices. But with his conference, we want to correct all misconceptions and let everyone know that we want to live in our lands with full respect for other ethnic and religious groups who happen to live within our borders.

    The idea of a National Conference was first initiated years ago by President Barzani, who also heads the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), Abdullah Ocalan, head of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), the late Idris Barzani, and Jalal Talabani, secretary general of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) and Iraq’s president.

    But political turmoil and different regional and international factors always posed a barrier to making this goal a reality. What is happening now is the revival of the ideas of those four leaders.

    Now that the entire region is going through rapid changes and people have become more aware of their political, national and social rights, particularly with respect to self-determination, the Kurdish cause has also felt a push forward.

    The Kurdish question cannot be separated from what is happening in the Middle East. Though the people in the greater region have finally had a chance to express their grievances, it has at times coincided with the use of violence.

    However, we emphasize our democratic and peaceful approach to our rights and ambitions.

    This conference is a peaceful step and a modern tool for our people to openly and legally discuss their right to self-determination the way it suits them. The Kurds are among those people of the Middle East who demand their democratic rights, and the international community should take this fact into consideration.

    By speaking to the international community about their rights, the Kurds do not mean to invite international inference in their cause, or to play off one side against another. The Kurds only want their cause to be placed among other serious questions in the Middle East that need debate and resolution.

    For example, the world community is contemplating the fight of the Syrian people for freedom and their other rights. Among their options is to supply Syrians with arms in order to help them succeed in their fight. So, we want the world to give the Kurdish question in that country the same level of thought.

    The agenda of the conference can be summarized in a few major points as follows:



    1- To establish a framework of cooperation between all Kurdish parties regardless of their political ideology and to exchange views and experiences in a peaceful and democratic manner in the autonomous Kurdistan Region.



    2- To reach an agreement that would criminalize and prohibit fighting and killing between Kurdish parties, and spare the Kurdish people from any civil war.



    3- To identify and separate the voice of the Kurdish people from all the noise and demands of various other groups in the Middle East.



    4- To work together to internationalize the case of genocide, massacres and gas attacks and ethnic cleansing campaigns perpetrated against our people.



    5- To define and introduce the struggle and ambitions of the Kurdish people in all four parts of Kurdistan to the international community.



    6- To put the Kurdish question among that of other nations in the region.



    7- To draw a common democratic and peaceful manifesto through which political groups from other parts of Kurdistan would work to fulfill their aims.



    8- To bring together all Kurdish groups and create an atmosphere where they could learn from the experience of the Kurdistan Region.



    9- To acknowledge the significant role and participation of Kurdish women in political and economic life.

    10-
    To bring the youth into social, political and cultural life in all four parts of Kurdistan.



    11- To support and revitalize civil society organizations who could play an essential role in the democratization of society.



    12- To give the international community and the nations of the region a true picture of the Kurdish people and their place in the world.



    13- To shed light on the different stages of the Kurdish struggle throughout the years and honor their leaders.



    14- To enhance the work of Kurdish intellectuals and literary people and use them as a channel to link our nation with the rest of the world.



    15- To separate the fourth estate from narrow political tendencies to the level of working for the promotion of democracy and understanding.

    Mfajkhat Baghdad government crammed in a tight corner
    30-07-2013 | (صوت العراق) - 30-07-2013 | (Voice of Iraq)

    بغداد: حمزة مصطفى Baghdad: Hamza Mustafa
    لم يفق العراقيون، قادة ومواطنون، بعد من صدمة «موقعة السجون» التي جرت أواخر الأسبوع الماضي في سجني التاجي وأبو غريب في بغداد وأدت إلى هروب المئات من السجناء من تنظيم القاعدة حتى فوجئوا بعشرات السيارات المفخخة التي ضربت صباح أمس العاصمة بغداد وعددا من المحافظات الوسطى والجنوبية. Did not wake up Iraqis, leaders and citizens, after the shock «signed prisons», which took place late last week in the prisons Taji and Abu Ghraib in Baghdad and led to the escape of hundreds of prisoners from al-Qaeda even surprised dozens of car bombs that hit yesterday morning Baghdad and a number of central provinces and South America.
    ورغم الإجراءات التي اتخذها رئيس الوزراء والقائد العام للقوات المسلحة نوري المالكي بطرد مدير السجون وعدد من معاونيه وإحالتهم مع عدد من كبار الضباط في وزارة الداخلية من المسؤولين عن حماية السجون وقواطع التاجي وأبي غريب فإن البرلمان العراقي فشل في وقت سابق من هذا الأسبوع في استضافة قائدي عمليات بغداد ودجلة بسبب عدم موافقة المالكي على حضورهما أمام البرلمان. Despite the actions taken by the Prime Minister and Commander of the Armed Forces Nouri al-Maliki to expel the director of prisons and a number of his aides and referral with a number of senior officers in the Ministry of Interior responsible for the protection of prisons and breakers Taji and Abu Ghraib, the Iraqi parliament failed earlier this week to host the leaders of Baghdad and the Tigris because of disapproval of al-Maliki on attending the Parliament. وكان المالكي قد برر في وقت سابق عدم موافقته على حضور كبار القادة الأمنيين إلى البرلمان بسبب أن هناك أعضاء في البرلمان يدعمون الإرهاب وينسقون مع الجماعات المسلحة وبالتالي فإن حضور القادة الأمنيين يعني الكشف عن معلومات أمنية واستخبارية قد يستفيد منها العدو. He has justified his earlier disagreement with the presence of senior security chiefs to Parliament because there are members of parliament who support terrorism and coordinate with the armed groups and therefore the presence of security leaders means that the disclosure of the information security and intelligence may benefit the enemy.

    لكن لجنة الأمن والدفاع البرلمانية، التي أكدت المعلومات التي أفادت بإقالة مدير الاستخبارات العسكرية، قالت، إن «المشكلة لم تعد في كيفية الحصول على المعلومة الأمنية بل في كيفية التعامل معها». But the committee parliamentary security and defense, which confirmed the information reported by the dismissal of the director of military intelligence, she said, that «the problem is no longer how to get security information but in how to deal with it. وقال عضو اللجنة عن كتلة التحالف الكردستاني، حسن جهاد، في تصريح لـ«الشرق الأوسط»، إن «التدهور الأخير في الملف الأمني لا سيما بعد حادثتي سجني التاجي وأبو غريب أكد حقيقة أساسية وهي أن تنظيم القاعدة استغل بشكل يكاد يكون مثاليا الوضع المزري الذي تمر به المنظومة الأمنية بسبب عدم وجود خطة أمنية أو وحدة قرار وتشتت في كل شيء بحيث أصبح زمام المبادرة بيده وهو ما جعله يضرب في الوقت الذي يختاره والأماكن التي يختارها». A member of the Committee for the Kurdistan Alliance bloc, Hassan Jihad, told «Middle East», that «the recent deterioration in the security file, especially after two incidents of prisoner Taji and Abu Ghraib emphasized basic fact is that al-Qaeda took advantage of almost perfect dire situation through which the security system due to the lack of a security plan or decision unit and the dispersion in everything so that it has become the lead in his hand, which make it strikes at the time of their choice and places chosen by ».

    وردا على سؤال بشأن طبيعة الأهداف وهي كلها مدنية وفي مناطق ذات غالبية شيعية، قال جهاد إنه «بصرف النظر عن الأهداف التي ترمي إليها مثل إحداث فتنة طائفية أو غيرها فإننا عندما نتحدث بأسلوب مهني وعلمي فإن التراخي الأمني لدى أجهزة الدولة الأمنية والعسكرية يوفر لـ(القاعدة) البيئة المناسبة لكي تضرب بكل قوة مما يجعل هذه الأجهزة تمضي من فشل إلى فشل وهو ما يحقق لها هدفا لوجيستيا مهما في عملها». In response to a question about the nature of the objectives of which are civil in areas with a Shiite majority, Jihad said that «Apart from the objectives of the like causing sectarian strife or other when we talk in a professional and scientific, the lax security at state security and military provides for (Rule ) suitable environment in order to hit with full force, making these devices go from failure to failure, which will bring it logistically important goal in their work. وبشأن ما تردد عن إقالة قائد الاستخبارات العسكرية قال جهاد، إن «المعلومات المتوفرة تشير إلى إقالته بالفعل لأن المشكلة التي بدأت تواجهها الأجهزة الأمنية العراقية هي ليس نقص المعلومات الاستخبارية بل في عدم القدرة إما على التعامل معها أو عدم وصولها في الوقت المناسب». And on the rumors about the dismissal of the commander of military intelligence, said Jihad, said that «the available information indicates already sacked because the problem that started facing the Iraqi security services is not a lack of intelligence information, but the inability to either handle it or it does not reach in time.

    من جانبه أكد عضو البرلمان العراقي عن القائمة العراقية والضابط السابق في الجيش العراقي برتبة لواء حامد المطلك في تصريح لـ«الشرق الأوسط» إن «المشكلة الأساسية هي أن الحكومة بكل ما لديها من أجهزة عسكرية وأمنية غير قادرة على حماية الناس وهو الهدف الأول لأي حكومة ومنظومة أمنية في العالم». For his part, member of the Iraqi parliament from the Iraqi List and a former officer in the Iraqi army generals Hamid al-Mutlaq told «Middle East» that «the fundamental problem is that the government in all of its military equipment, and security is able to protect the people is the first objective of any government system security in the world. وأضاف المطلك أن «الفشل هنا مركب فهناك فشل سياسي ينعكس بالضرورة على الأداء الأمني وفشل أمني بسبب عدم بناء المنظومة الأمنية على أسس مهنية صحيحة وهو ما يجعل الأمور دائما في وضع بالغ الحراجة». Mutlaq added that «composite failure here there is a political failure is not necessarily reflected on security performance and security failure due to lack of building security system on a professional basis are true, which makes things always in an extremely forestry. واعتبر المطلك أن «المطلوب إعادة النظر بكل شيء من السياسة إلى الأمن وإعادة بنائه بطريقة مهنية حرفية وليست عرقية طائفية لم نجن منها طوال السنوات العشر الماضية سوى الخراب والدمار». Mutlaq considered that «required to reconsider everything from politics to security and reconstruction in a professional manner and not literal ethnic sectarian engine which for the past ten years only desolation and destruction.

    وكان رئيس البرلمان العراقي أسامة النجيفي اعتبر في بيان أمس أن ما جرى أمس من تفجيرات هدفه «بث الفرقة وإثارة النعرات الطائفية بين أبناء الشعب الواحد». The head of the Iraqi parliament Osama Najafi considered in a statement yesterday that what happened yesterday of bombings aimed to sow discord and inciting sectarian strife between the sons of one people. وأكد النجيفي أن هذا مؤشر خطير يؤكد العجز الواضح في أداء الأجهزة الأمنية، وعدم قدرتها على حماية المواطنين، لا سيما بعد توالي الهجمات وارتفاع عدد الخروقات في الكم والنوع مما أدى إلى وقوع خسائر جسيمة في الأرواح والممتلكات، ودون أن يقابل ذلك أي تطور نوعي ملموس يمكن من خلاله طمأنة الشعب بقدرة المؤسسات الأمنية على التصدي ومواجهة هذا الخطر الدائم. The Najafi that this serious indicator confirms deficit evident in the performance of the security services, and its inability to protect citizens, especially after the succession of attacks and the high number of violations in quantity and quality, which led to a massive loss of life and property, and without that corresponds to any qualitative development concrete can from which to reassure people the ability of institutions to address security and confront this danger Permanent.

    من جانبه أكد وزير الدولة لشؤون العشائر السابق وزعيم الكتلة البيضاء في البرلمان العراقي جمال البطيخ أن «النظام السياسي الحالي في العراق لديه الكثير من الأعداء ممن حاولوا إسقاطه بشتى السبل ولكنهم لم يتمكنوا بالوسائل التقليدية وهو ما جعلهم يعملون على إثارة السخط من خلال اختيار أهداف سهلة لكي تحشر الحكومة في أضيق زاوية وتبدو عاجزة عن حماية الناس». For his part, Minister of State for Tribal Affairs and former leader of the Bloc white in the Iraqi parliament, beauty melon that «the current political system in Iraq has a lot of enemies who tried to drop it in various ways, but they could not by conventional means which make them work to raise discontent through the selection of easy targets in order to government crammed in the narrowest angle and can not seem to protect people. وقال البطيخ لـ«الشرق الأوسط»، إن «الوضع الأمني في العراق يتعرض الآن إلى مخاطر كبيرة حيث إن ما حصل في السجون جرس إنذار كبير وما حصل اليوم إنما هو جزء من المسلسل الذي يبدو أنه لا أحد يريد الاتعاظ منه وهو أمر لا يمكن تخطيه حيث إن الأوان قد حان لاتخاذ إجراءات صارمة وإلا فإن الحكومة ستكون محرجة تماما أمام الشعب وأمام حلفائها ممن يساندونها ويقفون إلى جانبها». The melon «Middle East», that «the security situation in Iraq now exposed to the risk of large as what happened in the prison alarm bell large and what happened today is part of the series, which it seems no one wants الاتعاظ him, and he can not be overridden where The time has come to take strict action otherwise the government would be quite embarrassing to the people in front its allies who يساندونها and the standing beside her. وأوضح أن «الجزء المهم الآن للحفاظ على السلم الأهلي والمجتمعي في العراق يتحمله شيوخ العشائر وأطراف المجتمع المدني» كاشفا عن «عقد اجتماع اليوم الثلاثاء مع نائب رئيس الجمهورية خضير الخزاعي لتفعيل مبادرة السلم الاجتماعي في العراق وعرضها على الطبقة السياسية من أجل وضع حد لهذا التناحر السياسي الذي بات يشكل خطرا على العملية السياسية والبناء الاجتماعي بكل نسيجه العشائري والديني والمذهبي». He explained that «the important thing now is to preserve civil peace and community in Iraq endures clan elders and civil society actors» revealing «a meeting Tuesday with Vice President Khodair al to activate the initiative of social peace in Iraq and presented to the political class in order to put an end to this political infighting which has become a threat to the political process and the social construction of all the tribal and religious fabric and denominational ».

    Shiite Seminaries Divided
    On Fatwas for Syrian Jihad

    By: Ali Mamouri for Al-Monitor Iraq Pulse Posted on July 29.

    The atmosphere of religious conflict in the region has created a hot market for jihad fatwas by religious institutions. Previously, a number of fatwas had been issued by several Sunni clergymen authorizing the act of traveling to Syria for the purpose of participating in jihad against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad. Presently, in response to the intensification of religious conflict in Syria, a fatwa has been issued by a clergyman from Qom, Iran that implicitly authorizes and legitimizes travel to Syria to take part in jihad against Salafist groups.

    Summary :
    While Shiite clergy in Iran and Iraq mostly prefer to stay out of issuing fatwas, a minority is calling for jihad in Syria against salafist groups.
    Author: Ali Mamouri

    This fatwa has been published on the official Facebook page of Ayatollah Seyed Kazem Haeri in the form of a response to a request for permission to travel to Syria for the purpose of defending the burial site of Zainab, the daughter of the third Shiite Imam, without parental permission. Haeri found this action permissible and stated that parental permission for such matters is unnecessary. Previously, Ayatollah Seyed Mohammad Sadegh Rouhani, a prominent clergyman from the Qom seminary, had also legitimized jihad in Syria for the purpose of protecting Shiite holy sites. He labeled individuals killed for this deed as martyrs. These fatwas have led to the opening of official registration sites in Iran for the purpose of traveling to participate in jihad in Syria.

    The publication of this fatwa has triggered instense opposition and displeasure among the high-ranking ayatollahs in the Qom and Najaf seminaries. These officials have found the fatwa to be based on illegitimate and unacceptable views. Asharq Alawsat reported on Ayatollah Ali Sistani’s view on forbidding travel to Syria for jihad and quoted from the four most prominent marjas (sources of emulation) in Najaf, saying, “Individuals who go to Syria for jihad are disobeying the commands of religious authorities.”

    In an interview with Al-Monitor, Seyed Javad Al-Khoei, one of the instructors of the Najaf seminary, confirmed the legitimacy of the news published in Asharq Alawsat. He added that the Najaf seminary has always prohibited the interference of religious matters in political conflicts and none of the prominent Najaf clergymen agree with the involvement of Shiites in the religious conflict in Syria.

    Similarly, no fatwa has been issued by prominent marjas of the Qom seminary regarding this issue as of yet. Rouhani and Haeri are considered second-degree marjas and possess less credibility and popularity than other religious leaders. The most significant point is that despite the fact that these two individuals belong to a school of thought supporting political Islam, they each hold a different position regarding the politics and structure of the Islamic Republic. Rouhani is a reputable revolutionary cleric in Iran who was subject to sequestration and house arrest before the victory of the revolution. His arrest was due to his dissimilar views from those of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and a number of other leaders of the revolution, and specifically because of his disagreement with the selection of Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri as the successor to Khomeini. As a result of his contact with forces associated with Hezbollah, Rouhani has once again become politically active regarding the region's religious conflicts.

    Haeri is also considered a revolutionary cleric and an advocate of the concept of Velayat-e Faqih (guardianship of the jurisprudence) and the Islamic Republic. Haeri has maintained good relations with the Islamic Republic and is considered a fervent defender of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, as he considers Khamenei’s views above all other religious authorities.

    During an interview with Al-Monitor, an instructor at the Qom seminary characterized the fatwas in support of jihad in Syria as a minority view, and considers them against the views of the reputable religious marjas of Qom. He added that these fatwas are not based on strong religious grounds and more so formed by an incorrect understanding of current regional events.

    In his response to a question about Haeri’s relationship with the Iranian regime, he referred to Haeri as the chosen face of the Islamic Republic in Iraq, who is used to promote the radical views of the Islamic Republic among the Shiites in the country. Furthermore, the instructor mentioned numerous meetings that have taken place between Haeri and Qais Al-Khazali, the spiritual leader of Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq, a radical movement in Iraq.

    He added that, after Muqtada al-Sadr distanced himself from the Islamic Republic, his relationship with Haeri also weakened. As a result, Haeri reclaimed all of his religious and political mandates granted to Sadr.

    Even in Iraq, Haeri possesses an undesirable image and a weak standing among the population due to his reputation for radical and violent fatwas. Previously, Haeri published a book entitled Dalil Al Mujahid, which contained fatwas regarding matters of warfare, especially pertaining to irregular and guerilla warfare. A large portion of these fatwas, such as killing prisoners of war or innocent individuals if necessary, are against international human rights conventions and have been considered crimes of war.

    An increasing number of war fatwas in support of jihad — from Sunnis and Shiites — have resulted in an increased number of casualties in the region. Such an environment has created a challenge for moderate groups, making it difficult for them to overcome the religious conflict. However, the decision by religious authorities to criticize such fatwas and declare them as erroneous will facilitate the creation of a peaceful and nonviolent environment.

    Ali Mamouri is a researcher and writer who specializes in religion. He is a former teacher in Iranian universities and seminaries in Iran and Iraq. He has published several articles related to religious affairs in the two countries and societal transformations and sectarianism in the Middle East.
