    Hajim al-Hassani: Implementing laws is as important as making them.

    Hajim al-Hassani, former speaker of the Iraqi parliament, believes that elections or changing leaders will not solve the problems in Iraq. “We need to establish the state institutions,” he said in an interview with Rudaw. “These laws will create a sound foundation for an institutionalized state.” Remarking on the several disputes raging between Erbil and Baghdad, he said that,” the cause of all these crises is rivalry over power and gaining control over the others.” For Hassani, “The process is wrong from the very beginning and we have to remind ourselves about how we want the governance system be in Iraq.”

    Rudaw: How do you evaluate the issues between Baghdad and the Kurdistan Region? Have they reached a deadlock?

    Hajim al-Hassani: These problems should have been solved in the beginning of the political process. But rivalries over power have delayed solving these issues time after time. The process is crystal clear, as some people intend to take Iraq back to the first square by establishing a central government and exercising control over the Kurdistan Region and other governorates. It is obvious that we are against these attempts and will not allow Iraq to have a centralized form of governance and dictatorship as in the past. Sincere dialogue is needed for solving the issues.

    We have been making and drafting laws for eight years, but none of them were addressing the important laws that are required by our constitution, such as the law of gas and oil, the law of the federal court and the law of the political parties.
    These laws will create a sound foundation for an institutionalized state.

    Rudaw: These issues exist because of the lack of laws or failure to implement them, because as you stated, many laws have been legislated in the past years?

    Hajim al-Hassani: It is clear that making laws does not solve the problems. Implementing laws is as important as making them. We have made many laws but have they been implemented? Laws have to be made, implemented and the implementation method evaluated. Sometimes laws are made but they are full of holes, and they need to be amended.

    We need serious dialogue and open talks in order to detect whether we have a true partnership in running this country or one side, which intends to impose its authority on the rest.

    Rudaw: When you were the speaker of the house, the problems were not out of control like now. Is it because the parliament had more power at that time?

    Hajim al-Hassani: The situation was different then. There was no single party who could control everything, like now. Today, the situation is different, especially after the withdrawal of the US troops, some groups have used that opportunity to seize power and exercise control over the others and marginalize them in the political process. It is not important to mention names, because it is obvious who they are.

    We have to ask the question of whether we want a modern state or not. If so, we have to work to prioritize the state institutions according to the standards and principles of institution building. In the beginning we all agreed upon partnership and consensus in dealing with the issues, at least in the transitional period. We could have passed through the transitional phase into the phase of stability if the partnership agreement was honored, but we could not because one side wants to marginalize others in every way possible. This has caused a series of economic and security crises and the spread of corruption. The cause of all these crises is rivalry over power and gaining control over the others. This means the process is wrong from the very beginning and we have to remind ourselves about how we want the governance system be in Iraq.

    The peaceful intention of the government and principles that are mentioned in the constitution are both key elements in this matter. When we talk about the federal system, this means a group of regions and not one single region and a central government.

    Rudaw: Maliki currently seems to be above everything in Iraq including the constitution. Where does that take us?

    Hajim al-Hassani: No doubt Maliki has a great share of responsibility, but he is not the only one. The other parties are also responsible. Maliki cannot pass bills in the parliament on his own as he controls less than 85 seats. Passing a bill in the Iraqi parliament requires 163 votes. Sometimes you need supermajority rule in passing certain laws. This means Maliki needs the assistance of others to do what he wants. So our point is that there are other parties beside Maliki who are also responsible by assisting Maliki. Those other parties must make their stance clear and declare their opposition.

    All the parties are waiting for the upcoming elections and hoping for a change in the political map and an opportunity for progress to occur... It is true that Maliki is acting unilaterally in matters of military and armed forces, but the core issue in leading the military forces is the lack of a clear law that specifies those posts and their powers. Till now, the type and the limits of the powers of the General Command of the Armed Forces is not clear. We still do not have interior and defense ministers, no head of intelligence, and no agreement exists in this regard. He runs all those posts and ministries by proxy.

    Rudaw: What do the other parties have in common with Maliki? Are they thinking like him or they are forced to assist him?

    Hajim al-Hassani: Those groups must prove that they are against the path of Maliki. Their words are not enough. The parties that support Maliki must reveal their true intentions. They can either choose between supporting autocracy and opposing it. They have to take a side.

    Rudaw: On the opening day of the Sulaimani Conference, Nechirvan Barzani spoke harshly against Baghdad. The Arab guests criticized the speech for being too harsh, while the Kurdish people continuously criticize the Kurdish leaders for being too soft towards Baghdad.

    Hajim al-Hassani: Moderation will be needed in this process. It is the language of diplomacy and dialogue in solving the problems, but when you know that the country is in danger, soft words will not change anything. You have to say decisive words to send a message to your opponent that you have other options. The Kurds are saying that they have other alternatives and we are saying the same thing. Those who previously were against the constitution are now accepting it despite its shortcomings, but even that has become hard to achieve. The Sunnis demand their constitutional right to become an autonomous region. This is their right, but we saw how the similar requests of Salaheddin and Diyala governorates were rejected.

    Rudaw: We have been hearing about the importance of dialogue in Iraq since 2003, but what has dialogue brought us?

    Hajim al-Hassani: We have two options, either resort to dialogue or fight. I believe dialogue is the better option if it reaches a conclusion. Conflict will harm everyone in the end. I hope we will not resort to war and complications, but we are also not very far off. Decision making in Iraq is not totally Iraqi. The regional countries are influential in the domestic issues of Iraq. There is always the external factor, and what happens in Iran and Syria impacts Iraq as well. I do not want to see a repetition to the Syrian events in Iraq, but it is very possible.

    This leads us to two choices. First, is to have elections to change the situations. Second, is to create regions in Iraq in order to distribute power and prevent concentrating it in the hands of one group or sect. If none of these options succeeded, then we will come face to face with a very dramatic option, such as the dissolution of Iraq into Kurdistan, Sunnistan and Shiistan. Of course, we do not wish that, but freedom means dignity for people, and when the dignity is trodden on, people will definitely reject it and matters will take a very dangerous turn as each side will form its own group.

    Rudaw: The problems between Baghdad and Erbil made Maliki withhold the salaries of the employees in Kurdistan Region. Do you see this as an economic embargo?

    Hajim al-Hassani: The current embargo is not only on Kurdistan Region, it has been imposed on the Sunni and some Shiite provinces as well. When the ideology becomes autocratic, all the people become under siege. Hence, we see opposition within the Shiite coalitions as well. Insisting on this policy means you want to push the country to a catastrophe.

    Rudaw: If you became the speaker of the Iraqi parliament at this current situation, what will you do?

    Hajim al-Hassani: Changing the leaders will not solve the current problems. We need to establish the state institutions. Leaders do not have superpowers to solve all the problems, but they need to believe in the constitution and implement it.

    Rudaw: Whenever federalism is mentioned, Maliki claims that Iraq is going towards division. Can you see that division?

    Hajim al-Hassani: Federalism does not mean division. Why did you accept federalism in the beginning and claim it leads to division? They were the main parties that demanded federalism. The unity of Iraq is only a slogan. The unity of Iraq can be protected when everyone feels free, when the state is institutionalized, corruption is eradicated and monopoly of power is prevented. We have not made these changes to prevent the current situation.


    Hajim Mahdi Saleh al-Hassani (Arabic: حاجم مهدي صالح الحسني), (born 1954, Kirkuk) to a prominent Kirkuki family is an Iraqi politician and was the speaker of the Iraqi National Assembly under the Iraqi Transitional Government. A moderate Sunni Arab and relative outsider, having spent much of his life in the United States, al-Hassani was tapped as a compromise candidate for the speaker's post after weeks of deadlock between Iraqi political parties. al-Hassani had previously been a member of the Iraqi Islamic Party in exile and was Industry Minister under the interim government of Iyad Allawi.

    Born in Kirkuk, Hassani attended Mosul University and relocated to the United States in 1979. He studied at the University of Nebraska and earned a Ph.D. degree from the University of Connecticut and then spent 12 years a CEO for an investment and trading company in Los Angeles. While in the U.S., he was involved in the opposition to the Saddam Hussein regime in exile, and was actively involved with the Iraqi Islamic Party (IIP).

    Hassani returned to Iraq following the U.S. invasion in 2003 and worked with the Interim Iraqi Governing Council appointed during the period of the Coalition Provisional Authority. As the IIP wielded influence in the dangerous Anbar province, Hassani was involved in negotiating a temporary truce with Fallujah-based insurgents in 2004 and successfully stopped an imminent attack on the city.

    Under the Iraqi Interim Government of Iyad Allawi, formed in 2004, Hassani was named industry minister in the new administration. He left the party when the IIP withdrew from the government, retaining his ministry post.

    He joined the Iraqis coalition of Interim President Ghazi al-Yawer for the election in January 2005. After the election the post of speaker was reportedly reserved for a Sunni Arab, and al-Hassani, one of only two candidates deemed acceptable to the range of parties, was offered the post.

    He was elected to the Council of Representatives of Iraq in the Iraqi legislative election of December 2005 as part of the Iraqi National List coalition led by Iyad Allawi. He resigned from that coalition in September 2007, claiming Allawi was high-handed and lacking in vision.[1] Later he formed Nationalist List and participated in the provincial election. He is considered by Iraqis as one of the moderate and liberal politician in Iraq after Saddam's regime and widely respected by most of politicians in Iraq.



    Baghdad (AIN) –The head of the Supreme Iraqi Islamic Council, Ammar al-Hakim, stated that building of Iraq depends on building strong Government.

    The Presidency of the Supreme Iraqi Islamic Council quoted Hakim as saying during his visit to the book international fair situated at Baghdad international fair that ''The Iraqi community face many challenges and many social disputes which only can be addressed through science and knowledge.''

    ''Iraq underwent many political and security circumstances that required to focus on development of construction while we should focus on building the Iraqi individual in order build a strong State that can serve its people,'' he concluded.

    The Guardian: America and Britain formed 17 teams to manage Iraq's oil after the war

    Sun Mar 23 2014 04:57 | (Voice of Iraq)

    Translation term The increase in the flow of oil from the Persian Gulf to avoid a potential global energy crisis, which is paid on the Iraq war planners, not weapons of mass destruction nor democracy.

    Yesterday marked the eleventh anniversary of the Iraq war in 2003. However, much of the media did not explore the real motive behind the invasion of the Anglo - American for this country. The reports were unsuccessful and inefficient for the effort bad administration to liberate Iraq from tyranny, and the course of the war is full of incompetence on a large scale, but this does not erase the lie cold logic and strategic prompted planners of the war in the United States and Britain in the first place.

    According to the project the infamous your document (the New American Century), signed by senior officials of the Bush administration in 1997, "including the unresolved conflict with Iraq provides the justification for an immediate," the United States "in order to play a more permanent role in Gulf security, the need for a larger U.S. troop In the Gulf region, beyond the issue of the regime of Saddam Hussein. "

    So Saddam's weapons of mass destruction were not the case, not even Saddam himself.

    Frankly, the real issue mentioned in the 2001 report on "energy security", commissioned by the then U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney, published by the Council on Foreign Relations and the James Baker Institute for Public Relations.

    The report warned of the global energy crisis is imminent that would increase the vulnerability of the United States and the world, and its inability to pay and to cope with the vagaries of unprecedented energy prices. The report said that the main source of the deficit is the "tension in the Middle East," in particular, and that Iraq is the one that poses the threat.

    The report indicated that U.S. officials had lost confidence of Saddam Hussein because of his policies volatile and unpredictable in the export of energy, in 2000, Iraq has become "productive swinging open the taps oil and closes when it feels that such action is in the favor of Strutijeth., And there is a possibility to interrupt Saddam oil Iraqi market for a period of time in order to harm the prices. remains of Iraq wobbling effect in the flow of oil to international markets from the Middle East, also expressed his desire to the threat of Saddam using the oil weapon and to use its export to manipulate oil markets.

    This would expose his personal power and enhances his image as a nationalist and putting pressure on others in order to lift economic sanctions on the regime. The United States must take the approach that an immediate toward Iraq including guesses military, economic, political, diplomatic, and then it is to develop a strategy associated with the most prominent allies in Europe and Asia, and with the important countries in the Middle East, in order to re-establish goals in regard to policy toward Iraq and the restoration of the coalition coherent prominent allies. "

    The Iraq war, in part because of the significant benefits of the oil conglomerates Anglo - American, which was a bonus.

    The real goal - also claim Craig Muttitt in his book "poured fuel on the fire", citing files not sorted to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs from 2003 upwards - is the stability of global energy supply by ensuring the flow of Iraqi oil to world markets, and the benefits for American companies and British, which was formed an important goal, but secondary.

    And is the most important strategic interest in expanding global energy supplies through foreign investment in some of the largest oil reserves in the world, especially Iraq, and this is in line with the secondary goal of securing contracts for their companies.

    Note that the strategy documents published here refers to "the British energy supply and global", is the British energy security by being global supply ample - and not for a specific flow.

    The documents show that the United States and Britain were seeking to privatize Iraq's oil production to allow foreign companies to control it.

    According to details of the meeting held on 12 Maes said that "the future shape of the Iraqi industry will affect the oil markets and the work of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, and in both of them will be our vital interests., And the desired result of the Iraqi oil industry winding is the oil sector open to attract foreign investment with appropriate arrangements for the exploitation of new fields" .

    It adds the documents, saying "look participation of foreign companies as the only possible solution" to make Iraq a reliable source of oil. This would be "politically sensitive" and "requires careful addressed in order to avoid the impression that we are trying to push the Iraqis to a specific path."

    Ath how the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to form 17 separate working group to work out a plan of action after the war. "Iraq will be judged senior U.S. military official .. a civil administration to impose military law." I imagined the United States "and a major U.S. role in the management of long reconstruction of the country .. with an ongoing role for thousands of U.S. troops stationed over the coming years in the defense of the oil fields, which in turn will be privatized with other industries, Dolly."

    For his part, Lieutenant General James Oilleri, adviser to the Foreign Office of the Coalition Provisional Authority in Baghdad since 2003, the critical role of Iraqi oil reserves to alleviate the global shortage of oil. I helped in the war in Iraq to avoid what he described as Oilleri b "wave Tashreeq", and the transition of power the global political and economic direction of China and India, which goes to them two-thirds of Middle East oil.

    And stresses the importance of strategic Oilleri to Iraqi oil fields in relation to the danger of production peaks being breached in the huge oil reserves in the world. Says "the escalation of Russian production to 10 million barrels per day, and proved that African oil is slow and does not provide additional supplies at affordable prices. Thus the large increase only the near-term will be from Iraq."

    Whether Iraq preferably east or west, that would be destabilizing not only within the region but also in distant countries. He says Oilleri that "Iraq holds the key to stability in the region, due to a population of relatively large and the consumer, but being the second largest oil reserves untapped, but its geopolitical Road between Asia and Europe and the Arabian Peninsula and North Africa - which he serves as the Silk Road."

    Despite the instability and rising domestic terrorism, the Iraq regains today rank as one of the fastest-exporting countries in the world. So the primary motive for the war - the mobilization of Iraqi oil production to maintain the global flow and moderate world prices - has been successful so far, according to the International Energy Agency.

    After a ten-year-old, no doubt that the Iraq war in 2003, was among the first major resource wars in the twentieth century and atheist, and certainly will not be the last.

    How can conduct elections in the current circumstances?

    By: Dr. Shimon Khmu - 23-03-2014 | (Voice of Iraq)

    There is no doubt that the security situation in Iraq has become clear now more than ever is not conducive to the parliamentary elections in a democratic, fair and transparent, because of the escalation in military operations in Anbar province and Fallujah in particular, and in this particular time.

    Here, we say We read this scene is full of significance, we should all of us not to forget our past experience during the past ten years, said that the military solution does not solve the problem and will not bring the country's security and stability, as well as the consequences of this war and the negative consequences of it,

    and that produced in the future on the homeland and the citizen , including the migration of thousands of families in Anbar province, areas of residence native to areas away from the circle of fighting, to avoid the flames of the battles between the forces of the central government on the one hand, and the militias, the Iraqi opposition on the other hand

    has sustained those families a lot of casualties and material losses, and within those militias there terrorist organizations belonging to the al-Qaeda terrorist organization and take her many different names, including (Front victory) and Organization (Daash) and others, as there are also many of the radical Islamist organizations under the names and addresses of national and nationalism are also different. And its extensions in some regional countries, including Turkey and Qatar, and receive them financial and military support and logistical support.

    Either the Iraqi government they have the military and political support and moral support by neighboring Iran, as well as the American ally under the strategic agreement held between them .. and this struggle will not end soon because of the regional intervention the intersection of interests of the parties to the conflict in the region, and we ask the government how it can be made ​​the election under the conditions now prevailing in Iraq, has been imposed on the government to create conditions and climates political and security suitable for conducting the election process properly and better than before, and this will be only the revival process the political dead, and respect the agreements concluded between the parties, and which provides secure real partnership in the management of affairs of the country by everyone, and open a new page in the deal, Mr. al-Maliki, with the main political blocs, especially the Kurdistan Regional Government.

    Here we must pay tribute to the positions of some political leaders who They are against the policy of marginalization and exclusion practiced by Mr. al-Maliki against them, they are against the military operations in Anbar province, especially in this particular circumstance, and where we are heading for a parliamentary election that will decide the future of Iraq and his fate, and in the introduction of these, Dr. Ayad Allawi, leader of the Kurdish Barzani and Mr. Muqtada al-Sadr Mr. Hakim and Mr. Osama Najafi and others.

    I've attached their people attached great where they were always the purest expression of integrity, sacrifice and impartiality, they are national symbols that wrap around national audiences. Thus, the elections will not take place in a democratic free and fair and transparent as long as the people have not liberated from the yoke of masters and tyranny, to accept the election a free man all have influence, whether from the outside or from the inside or from the instincts of self, and when liberated citizens of these restrictions then it improves the choice consciously and freedom and ensure the country's national parliaments sincerely working for the interests of the country and its people

    Chattels has been one of my ROCKS through this endeavor since I have been affiliated with Dinar Updates. I respect this man's integrity BEYOND WORDS! Here it is in case you missed it yesterday. Thanks again chattels. You are one in a million!!

    "Right vs. Real "

    This avocation of researching, reporting and commenting upon the Iraqi news regarding the status of the IQD is not about being " right ", but being " real ", in my opinion. It is for most an avocation and not an occupation. Few realize any monetary compensation for their time in all of this, but any undertaking worth doing should be undertaken responsibly and given our best efforts.

    At the end of every news day in this internet world, there is little research that is not known to all. It is not only desirable, but necessary to any good and reliable reporter of the news that all information have " ink and a link " or that the reporter clearly indicate that which is anecdotal or opinionated. This, everyone should require and be entitled to depend upon. The source of news is critical to an accurate and realistic commentary.

    It is not unusual for commentators to have divergent views on the same news information. Who is is right ? What is real ? Anyone who reports and comments upon the news should care enough to want to be right and have the conviction to believe they are correct in what they declare as understanding and truth to others. However, integrity demands that all be concerned about the possibility that they are wrong in their interpretation of the news.

    One should be more focused on being " real " than " right ". In the final analysis, I can live with honest error, but not to be real is dishonest and deceitful ; intentional or not, it is irresponsible to our self and others. It is not about being right, but real. It is about care, conviction and concern for all. We should fight the good fight, holding onto faith and good conscience.

    Godspeed the completion of the Iraqi banking sector reform project.

    God bless us everyone and may we in turn be a blessing to others.
