    The upcoming elections in Iraq changed the political map of alliances

    07-12-2013 | (Voice of Iraq)

    Baghdad: Hamza Mustafa
    Based on the experience of sharing formula governmental powers most effective in Iraq during the so-called governments of «national unity» 2006 - 2009 and «National Partnership» 2010 - 2014 and the consequent failure of the composite, both in terms of services and security or the principle of peaceful transfer of power, through clung Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki to power, all projections indicate that the political map in Iraq will change to a great extent.
    Maliki, who leads one of the largest coalitions in the country (state law), although it may leak from a number of MPs (Hussein al-Asadi, Javad Albzona, Izzat Shabandar) still from the viewpoint of his opponents insist the state the third, and summed up with the words uttered by a few years ago, a «what Nntaha »which turned out to be one of the most phrases that blamed the al-Maliki in a country that wants to build a new democratic experience.
    Maliki through leaks about his recent visit to the United States of America, and to the custody of the Iraqi National Congress leader Ahmed Chalabi, during an interview with a group of media, including the «Middle East», received a semi rebuke by «U.S. President Obama, who is not satisfied with the Maliki's policies with its partners ». He adds that «Maliki after he took the partners within the National Alliance, and submitted them to the Sadrist movement (led by Moqtada al-Sadr) and the Islamic Supreme Council (led by Ammar al-Hakim), the decision not to renew his third term, is in need of marketing himself in front of the Americans and the Iranians».
    Chalabi, who ran on the list of mass citizen of the Islamic Supreme Council, justified in the meeting itself that «the current civil and liberal still unable to impose himself as a big unified, so the only solution is to enter the figures civilian within these lists, especially as they want skip the dye sectarian them ». And in relation to what is happening now ahead of the elections, as the political forces of sectarianism and, according to confirmed by a member of the Political Bureau of the Iraqi Communist Party and a leader of the Democratic Movement, Dr. Raed Fahmi told «Middle East», that «despite the fact that the sectarian dimension is still a source of strength for many of the powers Political However there is some sort of redeployment among them do not change the results can be felt clearly ». Say in relation to what is going on from the fragmentation of some large blocs and entry elections separate lists, there are attempts to open up to some of the characters without the determinants and clear; The Deputy was described as the chief negotiator for al-Maliki, such as Izzat Shabandar and one of the highlights of the face of severe criticism of the Sadrist movement and its leader, Muqtada al-Sadr announces his withdrawal from the state Law and corresponds to the chest.
    Shabandar is about to announce a new block, among the personalities that comprise deputy for the Iraqi List led by Iyad Allawi before Chziha which Hussein al-Shaalan, the former deputy of the National Alliance is Wael Abdul Latif, which means that there is some kind of movement and overlap between the blocks and menus. It is true that Shabandar did not announce the joining of the Sadrist movement, however, there is some sort of identification between the currents of religious and civil rights. Perhaps what is striking in this context also the visit by the leader finally the Islamic Supreme Council Ammar al-Hakim to the now independent MP in the Iraqi parliament Safiya al-Suhail (had begun with the Iraqi List headed by Allawi) .. Drew attention both on a future alliance with them to contest the election within a cluster citizen or just to show good faith by the powers of the current sectarian civil or vice versa.
    Dr. Raed Fahmi adds in his speech for the «Middle East» that «indicators change electoral map undecided even though there seemed to be a change in this direction», indicating at the same time that «there is some sort of redeployment; Because these forces want to reproduce itself, a What should be wary of it, where it should not be overly optimistic too much ». He believes that «what determines the features of the next map is the experience of failure in the context of political participation for the past».
    And on what is now declared by some political blocs, including the nature of sectarian, says Fahmi said that «the issue of the political program is important; because that would overcome sectarian and ethnic, which is feared by some large blocs; because this would lead, in the framework of a new alliance , the formation of the next government ».
    In this context, there are many bets both in terms of the fragmentation of blocs or alliances change. Vaketl big like «National Alliance, the ruling Shiite» announced not only for entering the elections as lists separate, but declared it all and with the emphasis on the importance of the survival of the National Alliance, a general framework, it is the survival of the alliance depends on not to grant al-Maliki nor his party (call) a chance for a third term .
    The Iraqi List, the set seems more difficult because Chziha lists and different blocks still subject to conflicts large within the Sunni component, which makes the conflict is between the characters sometimes (Osama Najafi versus Saleh al-Mutlaq) or blocks (Iraqi National Allawi versus united under the leadership of Najafi) In the context of the representation of the Sunni component. Although there is a big problem within the Kurdistan Alliance, the Kurds used to be united about their experiences with Baghdad. Therefore, they will remain as a «touchstone» that would tip from forming the next government after the 2014 elections.

    National Museum of Iraq remains closed to public

    BAGHDAD — Although more than 10 years have passed since the transformative events of 2003 in Iraq, the fate of the Iraq Museum remains a mystery. News of it has all but disappeared. It is known to open its doors to diplomatic missions, but most Iraqis have never been inside the museum, which has been undergoing construction work, which has itself raised questions. Although there are workers in the museum, and although it was officially reopened in 2009, the museum remains closed to the public. With its director, Amira Edan, sometimes outright refusing to speak to the press, the museum is shrouded in mystery and secrecy. This is where my story of the museum began and enigmatically ended.

    Summary⎙ Print Four years after officially reopening, Iraq's national museum remains off limits to average Iraqis and information about it is difficult to obtain.

    Every time I pass by the museum, I feel the urge to go inside and see the antiquities, artwork and other items displayed there. I am overwhelmed by a burning desire to see the museum’s doors opened wide to visitors. It has been 10 years since the museum was vandalized following the US-led invasion. When I look at the museum's facade, I stare at it with the eyes of a citizen who has a bond thousands of years old with the museum.

    While standing in front of the new building one day, I suddenly remembered that I am a journalist. My job necessitates that I search for answers to questions that often perplex me. I immediately decided to go to the museum and ask the questions I had on my mind. I was certain I would be warmly received, but I stood waiting at the door of the director for far too long. I had notified her secretary of my business there and the importance of getting an interview with Edan. It turns out that waiting is part of every job at this museum, and visiting journalists are treated like any other employee. While I waited, various employees entered and left her office, one after the other. Then came my turn.

    The secretary entered the director's office to tell her that I was waiting to talk with her. A few minutes later, the secretary returned with disappointing news that decimated my optimism: “You must get an official letter from the journalistic institution you work for as well as a statement from the Ministry of Tourism allowing you to interview the director.” Having neither document, I expressed my surprise and objection, especially since I had wasted time waiting.

    Nevertheless, I decided to do what they asked of me. As I walked over to the Iraqi Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, I recalled clauses from the Journalist Protection Law, the right to access information and freedom of press, in addition to other matters aimed at ensuring respect for journalists. Before entering the Public Relations and Journalism Department, I saw posted signs that read “Journalism is an important element to promoting tourism.” This gave me renewed optimism. I entered to find a nice employee who kindly asked me to show her my professional ID and my personal status card. She took both IDs and disappeared.

    A few minutes later, the employee reappeared and asked me to write a petition addressed to the director general of public relations and media requesting his permission to interview the museum director. She also said that I must state the aim of my interview and provide the questions I intended to ask. Intrigued, I took pen and paper and drafted the petition. Shortly thereafter, the lady handed me the letter of permission signed by the director general. I left the ministry and re-read it several times, while repeatedly asking myself, “What kind of press obliges a journalist to submit questions and show them to an official to obtain approval for an interview?” Perhaps any questions other than straightforward ones would be deemed unacceptable. In any case, I contented myself with the document I had.

    The next day, I returned to the director’s office. The secretary was not there, so instead I talked to another woman there who seemed not to care about assisting me. I talked to yet another person, who told me to wait for the secretary.

    The secretary never appeared. I waited for more than 30 minutes, during which I saw a man going in and out of the director’s office several times. I took the opportunity to introduce myself and gave him my petition for an interview. He went into the director's office and immediately returned to tell me that the director does not talk to the press. His words set me off.

    “What did you say?” I retorted.

    He replied, “She does not talk to the press.”

    “Repeat what you just said. I’m having trouble understanding!” I said. He reiterated that Edan does not give interviews because she is very busy. He also said she would send me to other people.

    I shouted, “She has no right to do this. She is a government employee and she has to give interviews to the press. If she refuses to talk to the press, then why did she make me go through the trouble of providing her with an official letter from the Ministry of Tourism?"

    My raised voice drew the attention of the staff. I told them, "I am a journalist. The people in charge here ought to answer the questions I have to ask. They have no right to refuse to see me." One man tried to calm me down, telling me that some of the other employees could provide me with useful information.

    The man then escorted me in search of the person in charge of the restoration department, but we did not find him. We then went to meet with a woman who, the man said, could help us with information about her department. I asked her if she would have a problem with her photo being published. She said yes. I expressed my regrets, and we left the room.

    We went down the stairs to a courtyard, where the man invited me to take a seat. I asked him to try once again with the director, reminding her that I am a journalist and that it was her duty to meet with journalists and respond to their questions.

    He said, "I don't think she will agree to this. She has a lot to do. She is in charge of 18 museums dispersed across Iraq, not to mention her responsibilities at UNESCO." I was surprised by this line of argument.

    I responded, "This justification is not convincing, especially since the Iraq Museum works under the banner of the Ministry of Tourism, which touts the slogan that the media is an important component in promoting tourism. This is not to mention the fact that I am an Iraqi national, and I am very interested in knowing what has become of the Iraq Museum after 10 years. I do not believe it is anyone's property. I also want to give a clear picture of this important museum to the world." My words fell on deaf ears.

    In the meantime, the media director was seen passing by. The man called her over and told her my story. She sympathized with me and went to the director's office to try to get her to talk to me. I sat, waiting.

    Thirty minutes later, the media director returned, shaking her head, a sign of rejection. I stood there, overwhelmed with frustration and pained. I looked at the entrance to the halls only a few meters away, but in my confusion and anguish, they seemed miles in the distance. I was convinced that there was something wrong in the museum. Had this not been the case, the director would have welcomed me, shook my hand and allowed me to shed light on the place. It was as simple as that.

    Before I left the premises, I gave the media director the letter of approval for the interview. On my way out, I could feel the disappointed looks of the Sumerian, Assyrian and Babylonian statues at my back.

    I had wanted to ask Edan about her statement in 2010, when she talked about the rehabilitation of 90% of the museum according to international standards. What has become of the other 10% of the museum in the last three years, as we have heard that the actual renovation did not exceed 70%? What exactly did she mean when she said that the museum requires governmental and international support to be readied to receive visitors.

    I wanted to ask her about the artifacts that have been restored over the past 10 years and about her previous warning that some of the monuments and objects were subject to damage due to ongoing power outages. I wanted to learn more about her complaints about the lack of security guards and janitors at the museum.

    I wanted to ask her why the museum receives diplomatic delegations from Arab and foreign embassies but refuses to allow entrance to average Iraqis? Why does the museum not open its doors to students so they can learn about the history of their country? Does she still think re-opening the museum is a risk in light of the security situation.

    I had questions about reports in the local media claiming that antiquities have been stolen and smuggled out of the country with the help of government officials. Have some of the museum’s manuscript records and coins been damaged?

    All of these questions were left unanswered, because the director of the museum refused to talk to the press.

    The Iraq Museum is one of the oldest museums in the Middle East and was home to some 200,000 rare antiquities from Mesopotamian civilization before the looting in 2003.

    Iran and the nuclear agreement: Trust but verify

    The Joint Plan of Action signed in Geneva represents a serious step toward defusing the longstanding dispute between Iran and the West over Iran’s nuclear program. Both sides negotiated seriously and in good faith, overcoming substantial problems while achieving an important agreement.

    Summary⎙ PrintThree senior former diplomats from the United States and Iran write that the interim agreement with Iran can lead to progress not only on the nuclear file, but also in Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq.

    For the interim agreement to work, however, both sides need to commit unequivocally to fully meeting the obligations on time. There is no room for delays, obfuscation, excuses.

    This is not simply a matter of building trust or goodwill. Yes, an interim agreement has been reached, but with 30-plus years of deep distrust and enmity between Iran and the West as the backdrop. There is no sugar-coating the distrust or sense of victimization that pervades this agreement, and the feeling on both sides that the other will not fulfill its obligations or, more bluntly, will cheat.

    For both Iran and the international community, the failure to implement this interim agreement scrupulously will have exceedingly serious consequences. If Iran fails to do exactly what it has committed to do, opponents will say it is a sign that Iran is using the interim agreement to simply buy time to achieve nuclear weapons capability. If Iran fails to come clean about all of its facilities, as required by the IAEA, it will be taken as proof that these negotiations have been a sham.

    At the same time, if the West does not lift the specified sanctions or, worse, should the US Congress or another country actually impose greater sanctions during this six-month period, it will be a clear sign that the West is not interested in a negotiated deal and that the United States has not distanced itself from a policy of regime change.

    The most important thing both sides should do now is convince the world that this deal is credible — not perfect for either side, but good enough to meet both sides’ minimal requirements. Otherwise, the voices of the skeptics and opponents of the deal will rise above those wanting it to work. Skeptics and opponents abound — in both Tehran as well as in many other capitals, including Washington.

    For the United States, internal opposition to the deal and concern about Iranian behavior have been reinforced by the trepidations of two of its closest allies, Israel and Saudi Arabia. The deep uneasiness in Jerusalem and Riyadh is tangible and immediate, for both countries see Iran as a mortal enemy, bent on Israel’s destruction and regional hegemony. For Iran, internal opposition to the deal and concern relate to US policies, reinforced during President Barack Obama’s first term and supported by Israel that challenge Iran’s right to enrich it nuclear stockpile for energy use.

    Thus, if either side fails to do exactly what it is required to do under the terms of the agreement the deal will be seen as a failure — and the consequences of such a failure must be understood up front. The first time Iran delays an inspection, hedges on fulfilling a commitment, seeks to buy time before implementing part of the deal or, far more dangerously, is caught cheating by failing to report an activity not permitted by the agreement, the EU3+3 (France, Germany and the United Kingdom, plus China, Russia and the United States) would not only re-impose and strengthen sanctions immediately, but also would go to the UN Security Council immediately and likely adopt the strongest possible resolution authorizing corrective action under Article VII — that is, authorizing military action. Conversely, if the obligations undertaken by the EU3+3 are not implemented scrupulously or on time, Iran would feel it has the right to make unilateral decisions regarding the future of its nuclear program. While it is unlikely that Iran would gain Security Council support to assert this right, it would seek UN General Assembly support and likely begin a confrontational foreign policy against the United States and the West.

    Even with perfect implementation of this interim agreement, there is no certainty that a permanent agreement can be reached in six months. The gaps between the two sides are still wide and deep. Indeed, if a permanent deal cannot be reached, it is quite likely that the crisis six months from now will be intense and explosive and the opponents of the interim deal will be vindicated.

    But to have any hope of reaching a permanent agreement, this interim agreement must be followed to the “letter of the law.” Both the EU3+3 and Iran must adopt a firm policy today that they will have zero tolerance regarding delays or failure to implement the interim agreement. Complete, timely implementation will not only build trust and credibility, but will also significantly improve the atmosphere and prospects for a full agreement within the next six months. Such a trend would facilitate further constructive cooperation between Iran and the world powers on other crises in the Middle East such as Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq. The interim agreement — and its faithful implementation —is a significant opportunity which should not be missed or it will constitute a failure of unimaginable proportions.
