    Will Sadr and Hakim grabbing 2014 of Maliki's government?
    08-11-2013 | (Voice of Iraq)

    Talk | Mustafa Habib | Baghdad

    While facing Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki (Shiite) a barrage of domestic criticism and regional afford causes of crises security and political situation in Iraq, rising star of the two leaders young Moqtada al-Sadr and Ammar al-Hakim in circles Shiite and non-Shiite, two يرتبان أوراقهما well in preparation for the upcoming legislative elections.
    The irony that al-Hakim, who leads the "Islamic Supreme Council" and Sadr, who leads the Sadrist movement, both of which belong to two families Denetin Shiite, and Phelps, uniforms religious with turbans black, have become today's more acceptable among political circles current Nouri al-Maliki, who belongs to the Shiite party organizer is not based on Family leadership is committed to its members not to wear religious dress, but wore Western suits with neckties.
    Says MP from the bloc "united" for the province of Anbar and Walid Mohammadi for "discussion" that "the alliance between the Sadr and Hakim future is very likely because the positions of both men in the national interest and are always Istnkran the marginalization of the Sunnis in Iraq by the government."
    Among the most prominent changes brought about by the political situation in Iraq in the past two years, the Shiite parties that it was hard to think the probability of disintegration of the alliance, has become dispersed same day if the rest of the blocks.
    The highlights of these variables are represented by the two leaders two young Moqtada al-Sadr and Ammar al-Hakim, was able men to communicate with the grassroots by focusing on services for the citizen and suffering, unlike the rest of the parties and specifically party "call" which is headed by al-Maliki, who left the citizens and staked to compete with the rest of the parties to extract gains political.
    He succeeded both Sadr and Hakim, despite their small Oamarhma and the lack of experience of political gains good on several levels, the first big successes in the provincial elections which took place on 20 April last year, while you can not parties ancient leaders of character charismatic than achieved.
    For instance, the "coalition of state law," which includes the party "call" as well as "National Reform Movement" led by veteran politician Ibrahim al-Jaafari, the Party of "virtue" led by the religious authority, Mohammed al-Yacoubi, and the "Badr" split from the Supreme Council, led by Hadi al-Amiri, received a 87 seats in the nine Shiite provinces in addition to Baghdad.
    While the "Supreme Council" alone on 61 seats, as happened Sadrist 58 seat what pushed them into an alliance together against the "rule of law" and were able to grab the presidency of the leading provinces in the country which is Baghdad, the capital, and Basra oil city south of the country, and perhaps repeat this scenario in forming a government of 2014.
    In addition to achievement in the provinces, both men have taken positions supportive of the Year who feel injustice and marginalization in the country, for example, support the Sunni al-Sadr demonstrations in Anbar and other cities, in what was considered wise if the demonstrations legitimate right positive addition to their positions with the Kurds.
    Hakim and debugging
    Received Ammar al-Hakim's leadership, "the Islamic Supreme Council" successor to his father, who died in 2009 after significant challenges, as this Shiite party ancient includes prominent members, most of them elderly, was wise to convince them his leadership first, and then work on changing the mindset of the opposition, which controls the minds II.
    Another challenge faced wise is he inherited a political entity has only nine parliamentary seats in the 2010 elections after a tough loss he received from voters.
    But Hakim succeeded in these tests are difficult, investor youthful spirit that infuses to communicate better with the Shi'a population, by holding regular conferences, weekly, monthly, some religious and other social and cultural poses where new ideas demanding corrects errors not devoid of criticism indirectly to the performance of the government of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki.
    Says the leader of the "Islamic Supreme Council" Hamid Maaleh for "discussion" that "errors contained in political action, and recognized as the first step to overcome them and that's what we by political كتيار and succeeded so thanks to our seriousness in work."
    Hakim also began a political strategy based on creating friends not enemies, he will meet political leaders and influential Sunni tribal, whereas Maliki does not have this, even if al-Hakim visited Anbar in 2007 and met with the Awakening leader Ahmed Abu Risha, who is currently يعاديه Maliki.
    In addition, al-Hakim has good relations with the Kurds and the rest of the parties and religious figures and the Communist Kalhzb tribal and representatives of Christian minorities and retina and the Sabians and others.
    Sadr and change strategies
    In parallel, the prominent Shiite leader Muqtada al-Sadr began a series of political measures commensurate with the changes imposed by the 2010 elections after winning 40 parliamentary seats.
    Despite the reputation of the Mehdi Army militia has been bad in the minds of the Iraqis, especially the Sunni population, has relatively succeeded in improving this image.
    Sadr, who raised the slogan of resistance since 2004 abandoned this logo with the American withdrawal from the country by the end of 2011, and succeeded in freezing the work of the Mahdi Army, and then convert it into a political organization and cultural.
    Moreover, Sadr, who walked away from communicating with his popular base and his supporters in Iran retreat between 2006 _ 2012, baptized after his return to Iraq to communicate with his supporters.

    Communication is currently being through referendums almost daily on its website, as it is being primaries to his supporters before participating in the electoral processes, whether parliamentary or local, to choose the most efficient among them, while Sadr does not interfere in the appointment of candidates.
    Sadr went even further, announcing that he is not a proponent of religious formation of governments does not intend by his deputies in the parliament or the neo-conservatives who belong to the imposition of the Islamic religion.
    Sadr says jokingly which mediates journalists during a dialogue with him last month, "I'm between secular Islamic, either Oxpkm the debt, or Teixboni to secularism".
    This statement reflects the evolution of the political awareness of the chest, after the close political advisers him mostly competencies, and beyond it the traditional religious leaders of turbans owners.
    At the political level, the chest does not hesitate for directing the critically acclaimed for Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, which is several times described as a "dictator" and accused him of defaming the Shiites by the method of his bad what made the chest acceptable to the population, Sunnis and Kurds, considering his brave and away from ditching sectarian.
    Maliki creates for himself liabilities
    At the time he was Sadr and Hakim preoccupied with the internal order of their forms and increase the momentum of the People's their rules and develop their strategy, Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki involved in the creation of a broad front of opponents and enemies are still increasing, even regionally.
    Traditional rivalry began with a coalition of "Iraq," led by Iyad Allawi, who cede the premiership despite his victory in the elections with 91 seats, two seats behind the "coalition of the rule of law", for which there are no liabilities carried out by al-Maliki.
    Antagonizing the "Iraqi" was through repudiation of the formation of the "National Council for the strategic policies," a new position was supposed to be headed by Allawi, and then repudiation of the pack understandings with them to get the mass on the defense portfolio to this day.
    Maliki subsequently increased from the front of his opponents included Kurds (57 seats in parliament out of 325) and Muqtada al-Sadr (40 seats) and the "Islamic Supreme Council" (nine seats), the latter two are essential partners with him in the "National Alliance".
    Maliki had not been subjected to domestic criticism, but that regional parties, especially the United States does not seem satisfied with the performance of al-Maliki, and that was evident in the recent visit by Maliki to Washington, where he confronted a stream of criticism from members of the U.S. Congress.
    These variables will make Hakim and al-Sadr are strong rivals for the owners in the next Iraqi prime minister, on the grounds that the post of prime minister of the Shiites and share according to sectarian quotas in place in Iraq since 2003.
    Says senior Shi'ite politician who preferred anonymity for "discussion" that "regional interventions in forming a government in 2010 imposed if the Prime Minister Shi'ite enjoys in the first place in line regional and specifically Iran and America and secondarily regaining by an internal, while in 2014 it will be different, as Iran and America know well that they would be in an awkward position if they insisted on the survival of Maliki for a third term. "
    This draws the political that "the standard selection of a new prime minister will depend on finding an internal consensus first, before talking about regional consensus."
    And excludes Sadrist alliance with al-Maliki in the future, where he says the current MP Jawad's Alshahyla "Talk," "I will not trust again Maliki and his coalition difficult, today we seek to Shakeel alliance with the Supreme Council, Sunnis and Kurds in preparation for the upcoming elections."

    Small victory for Iraqi civil society on pension law

    It can be said that the civil movement that took off in Iraq to cancel privileges, special ranks and pensions of members of parliament has led to tangible progress toward this goal, after the federal government issued a decision in October to cancel the old pension law that guaranteed parliament members and government officials a pension for having served in the parliament or the government for four years or less.

    Summary⎙ Print While civil activists successfully brought an end to unfair parliamentary salaries and pensions last month, many gaps in Iraqi law persist.

    AuthorMustafa al-KadhimiPosted November 7, 2013
    Translator(s)Pascale Menassa

    Today, the Iraqi parliament must inevitably issue new legislation that organizes state service and the resulting pensions in a way that fulfills the principles of equality and justice in this field.

    However, the energy of civil and youth movements has been drained for this win. Many prominent figures in the movement thought that fulfilling the goal of the campaign to annul the pension law would be enough to reach the desired reform. In reality, reform in Iraq remains a pressing need not only for the political situation, but also for the economy, legislation, administration, judiciary, education, health care, society and labor rights.

    This huge need for reform is mostly dependent on the legislature tasked with rebuilding the Iraqi state and saving it from contradictions, confusions and overlapping powers. This same entity should organize its performance in different fields, set up the structure for political and party work and monitor the performance of the government’s institutions.

    During its last two sessions, the Iraqi parliament was not able to perform these tasks, becoming overwhelmed each time by long and convoluted political battles. The parliament also involved itself in useless settlements and deals that impeded the reform efforts.

    The main problem is that the so-called “pillars of the state” are legally unclear. There is no clear organization and legal definition for a political party in Iraq. Moreover, there is no law defining the mechanism for managing the economy or regulating the relationships between the authorities. There is not even a complete law that organizes the relationship between the local authorities, regions and federal authorities.

    The missing legislative pillars should be the goals of any civil movement, especially after the success of the movement aimed at changing the pension law. The civil battle largely relies on laws. Therefore, to fight such a battle, youth organizations and movements, protest leaders and even groups demanding reform on social media must study the nature of the Iraqi problem and discover its legal foundations to prepare a list of demands that goes beyond general slogans and focuses on the imbalance that is obstructing the state’s development.

    Legal culture should be spread by the government, but cultural and social elites and civil organizations should also take part in this mission. Legal texts alone cannot bring about reform. The process necessitates public awareness about fundamental civil rights.

    Such civil activity is not widely seen in Iraq, despite hundreds of civil organizations that are concerned with raising public awareness of basic rights. This, in itself, is a case that needs attention.

    Iraqi Kurdistan more vulnerable to Al-Qaeda attacks

    On Nov. 3, the Kurdish security forces prevented another suicide attack on the security headquarters building in Akre, Dahuk, arresting two Syrians who were members of the al-Qaeda-affiliated Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS). The security operation shows the Kurdish security forces' vigilance, and it also indicates that the Syrian war has increased security risks for the Iraqi Kurds, who have managed to keep their region safe from attacks for six years.

    The war in Syria, including the spread of radical Islamist terrorists, is spilling over into the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.

    AuthorWladimir van WilgenburgPostedNovember 7, 2013

    Reports suggest that the Iraqi Kurdish border security has been tightened and that some Iraqi Arabs who want to visit Iraqi Kurdistan are turned away. The increased security threat to Iraqi Kurdistan is linked to the empowerment of al-Qaeda as a result of the civil war in Syria. Despite this, the Kurdish security forces are well-prepared to prevent any threat to the security of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq and have increased security measures to prevent any attack.

    A report based on police sources from the Kurdish TV station NRT suggested that 500 ISIS fighters have come to the province of Kirkuk from Syria, which has aroused concern among the Kurdish security forces. Kirkuk is not officially part of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, but it borders the provinces of Erbil and Sulaimaniyah and is also mostly under the control of security forces linked to the Kurds.

    The official ISIS media outlet, the Ministry of Information, claimed responsibility on Oct. 6 for the Sept. 29 suicide attack in Erbil that killed seven people and wounded more than 70. The group claimed that it was a response to alleged aid by Kurdish President Massoud Barzani to Baghdad against al-Qaeda and for Barzani’s statement promising help to the Kurds in Syria.

    The statement by the ministry, which was also tweeted (@e3tesemo), read: “In response to the threats issued by criminal apostate Massoud Barzani — the head of what is known as the Kurdistan Region of Iraq and he who issued a statement in preparation of sending members of the evil Kurdish security, known as the 'Asayish' — to stand with the Safavid [reference to the alleged Iranian-controlled Iraqi government] government and protect the Rafidites [derogatory term for Shiites] against the rising attacks of the mujahedeen, saying they failed to stop the attacks, despite their efforts."

    The contents of the statement is most likely a reference to the help the Iraqi Kurds provided to Baghdad after the storming of Abu Ghraib prison on July 21, in which many al-Qaeda members escaped. Reuters reported in August that the Shiite-led Iraqi government and the Kurdish government were looking to launch a joint security operation and share intelligence to combat the al-Qaeda threat, after the latter increased its presence in the provinces that are disputed by Baghdad and the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG). In May, a security agreement was signed by the Kurdish government and Baghdad to form a supreme security committee for security cooperation.

    The al-Qaeda statement also mentioned threats by Barzani to support the Syrian Kurds, who are under threat of Islamist brigades linked to al-Qaeda. “Another threat by the mentioned criminal [Barzani] against the mujahedeen in Sham [Syria], announcing his intention to support the war criminals of the PKK [Kurdistan Workers Party] who are fighting the Islamic state and other jihadists in the border areas of Deir al-Zour-Baraqqa, Hassakeh, Raqqa and Aleppo.”

    “There has been news recently that al-Qaeda groups have declared war against the Kurds in Syria and engage in beheadings of Kurdish women and children,” Barzani said in a letter to the organizers of the important Kurdish National Conference scheduled to be held in Erbil on Nov. 25-27, after having been postponed several times before.

    The letter continued, “If those reports are true, the Kurdistan Region of Iraq is ready to do everything in its power to protect the lives of the Kurds in western (Syrian) Kurdistan.”

    However, in reality, there have been tensions between Barzani’s Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) and the PKK-linked Democratic Union Party (PYD), which resulted in the KDP refusing entry to PYD leader Saleh Muslim in October.

    Fighters of the PKK-linked People’s Defense Units (YPG) have been engaged in clashes with Islamist groups linked to the Free Syrian Army and al-Qaeda since July 16 in Raqqa, Aleppo and Hassakeh. They have been making progress, especially in Hassakeh, while losing out in the more mixed areas in Raqqa, where al-Qaeda is strong. On Oct. 26, they captured the Iraqi border crossing and took control of several villages in Hassakeh.

    The ISIS statement mentions that the operation was prepared for more than a month and was part of a series of operations, claiming the headquarters of the Kurdish security in Erbil to be a "criminal tool of oppression and injustice" and part of the "war against Islam."

    The statement further mentions how the al-Qaeda group attacked the Kurdish security forces in Erbil.

    On Sept. 29, the Kurdish security authorities confirmed in a press conference that ISIS was behind the attack.

    Although Kurdish media reported that Kurds were possibly involved in the Erbil attack, Masrour Barzani, the KRG’s director of security and intelligence services, announced that no Kurds were involved, and that three ISIS suspects — Samer Baker Younis, Muhammad Khalil Khadosh and Hashim Salih Muhammad — from Mosul were arrested and confessed to being ISIS members.

    “The investigation is still ongoing, but no Kurds were involved in any of the attack's stages. The terrorists used 150 kilograms [330 pounds] of TNT in the attack,” Masrour Barzani said, as reported by the Kurdish news website Bas News.

    Idrees Mosa, a lecturer in international relations at the University of Dahuk's department of political science, told Al-Monitor by email, “Maintaining stability in the region is a pillar of KRG strategy. It is a driving force behind the economic development in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.”

    He continued, “It [the attack] mainly has had a psychological effect. I cannot verify the NRT report. However, the KRG is increasingly becoming more vulnerable to terrorist attacks. The KRG has been deeply worried about the terrorist threat coming from Syria even before the attack.”

    Iraqi Prime Minister Maliki Urges Greater U.S. Support


    October 31, 2013


    Thomas Omestad

    Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, in an October 31 address at the U.S. Institute of Peace (USIP) in Washington, called for more support from the United States in countering an ongoing wave of terrorism in Iraq that has been attributed primarily to al-Qaida-backed extremists, as well as for American patience as Iraq tries to build its young democracy amid the country’s deep internal political disputes.

    At USIP, Iraqi Prime Minister Maliki Calls for Greater U.S. Support

    “We will defeat the terrorists by our local efforts and our partnership with the United States,” said Maliki, who leads a Shiite-dominated coalition government and is serving in his second term as prime minister. “We were partners and we shed blood together while fighting terrorists.”

    Fueled by a spillover of militants and weapons from neighboring Syria’s civil war and by deepening grievances among Iraqi Sunnis against the Shiite majority-led government in Baghdad, sectarian violence in the country this year has surged, climbing to its highest levels since the bloody cycle of attacks and reprisals in 2006-08. At that time, U.S. forces and Iraqi government security units were fighting the insurgents together. This September, nearly 1,000 Iraqis were killed in terrorist and related attacks, and more than 2,000 were wounded, according to the United Nations. More than 6,000 Iraqis have died in the violence so far this year.

    The return of such large-scale violence is raising fears that Iraq could be falling back toward a possible civil war, injecting further instability into a region already roiled by the effects of the Arab Spring uprisings.

    Maliki described Iraq’s terrorism challenge as “huge and increasing—and we should face it.” The prime minister, making his first visit to Washington since the withdrawal of U.S. military forces from Iraq was completed in December 2011, said he came to Washington “to consolidate the SFA [the bilateral Strategic Framework Agreement] at all levels,” including cooperation on security, trade and investment, reconstruction and education. He will speak with President Obama on Nov. 1 and has already met with Vice President Biden, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel and congressional leaders.

    The centerpiece of his USIP speech was an appeal for more U.S. support in defeating al-Qaida militants in Iraq. Iraq is seeking additional U.S. weaponry, including Apache attack helicopters and drones, though Maliki’s remarks focused on counterterrorism and intelligence cooperation. “Iraq needs its friends, to benefit from their experience and training,” he said.

    Insufficient U.S. and international support, he warned, would “be disastrous for the whole world.” He said his government has a position of neutrality on the Syrian conflict and favors “a democratic, pluralistic regime” resulting from negotiations in Syria, where an array of opposition forces, including radical groups linked to al-Qaida, are fighting to remove Bashar al-Assad from power.

    Maliki also acknowledged the need for Iraqi domestic “peace and reconciliation” to defeat terrorists. “Facing terrorism,” he said, “is not only about military force….We need a sound social structure.”

    Iraqi oppositionists contend that the country’s minority Sunnis have endured discrimination at the hands of the government and its supporters, been targeted by security forces for mass arrests and harsh treatment and lacked access to due process of law. They argue that Maliki has centralized political power around himself—and allowed official security forces to act in coordination with Shiite armed groups—while ignoring demands by political leaders in some Sunni-dominated areas to govern with greater autonomy.

    U.S. officials for years have also urged Maliki to adopt a more inclusive political approach and reach out more energetically to Sunni political figures for the purpose of building national unity and, more recently, for fostering improved internal political conditions to counter the militants.

    Maliki was criticized this week by a bipartisan group of U.S. senators. In a letter to President Obama, the senators blamed what they called Maliki’s “mismanagement of Iraqi politics” for contributing to sectarian violence, and said his government was too influenced by Iran. Iraq’s government has allowed overflights of Iranian aircraft bound for Syria that are believed to have carried arms to defend Iran’s ally al-Assad.

    Maliki touched on some of those issues in his speech and subsequent comments in response to audience questions. He said that he has always acted legally and that some criticisms reflect the inevitable struggles with overcoming a long dictatorship.

    “I never, never stepped on the Constitution,” he said. “Democracy…needs lots of time and solutions, and we have a very heavy legacy.” Further, he said, Iraqis of all religious and ethnic backgrounds have been targeted by terrorists, and all groups are giving support to and sharing information on threats with Iraqi security forces.

    As for Iraq’s relationships in the Middle East, Maliki said it “is acting independently and freely and according to its own interests." He added that his government believes it has an interest in “a strong relationship with the United States,” regardless of whatever other countries in the region prefer.

    The meeting opened with brief comments by USIP President Jim Marshall; Manal Omar, USIP’s associate vice president for Middle East and Africa programs; and Beth Jones, the U.S. State Department’s acting assistant secretary for Near Eastern affairs.

    While noting that “Iraq still faces formidable challenges,” Jones said, “Its future looks bright.” She characterized security as “only one aspect of our cooperation” and pledged U.S. assistance for Iraq to meet “all technical requirements to ensure free and fair elections” for parliament in April of next year. Maliki is widely expected to seek a third term as prime minister, though he did not directly answer a question from an audience member about his own political intentions. Maliki met privately at the Institute with USIP and other Iraq specialists after his public address.

    The October 31 visit marked Maliki’s second appearance at the Institute, the first having been for a speech in July 2009. USIP has carried on a range of peacebuilding activities inside Iraq since shortly after U.S. and allied forces invaded and forced Saddam Hussein from power in 2003. The Institute has continued to make grants and assist conflict management efforts there after the U.S. military withdrawal, and it maintains a permanent office in Baghdad.

    “USIP remains committed to a long-term strategy of supporting peacebuilding institutions in Iraq,” Omar said in an interview. “Iraq is deteriorating in terms of violence, but state institutions and civil society that already exist are in a position to work on resolving conflicts.”
