    The Iraqi Parliament Fails to Approve New Security Ministers

    Posted by Reidar Visser on Tuesday, 16 September 2014 18:35

    New Iraq PM Haydar al-Abbadi kept his promise to present ministerial candidates for portfolios not included in the recent vote on his new cabinet, but the Iraqi parliament proved uncooperative. As a result, only one minister, for water management, was approved in today’s session. Crucially, all key security ministries remain vacant.

    The most contentious nominations related to the defence and interior ministries. With respect to defence, the name of Jabir al-Jabiri, an Anbar politician with considerable popular backing and past ties to the former finance minister, Rafe al-Isawi, has recurred for some time as the nominee of the Sunni coalition in parliament. Conversely, it was something of a surprise that Riyad Ghrayb, a Shiite chameleon who has gone from a past with ISCI to the State of Law bloc and the faction of Hussein al-Shahristani, was put forward in the last minute. Before that, it had largely been thought that Badr would present a candidate, even after their original nominee, Hadi al-Ameri, was found by most other parties to be too unpalatable in such a sensitive position. As late as yesterday, a modification of the Badr proposal was presented in the shape of “independents” that might be acceptable to Badr, such as Ahmad Chalabi and Qasim Dawud. Today, the Shiite alliance held a last-minute meeting before the parliament session without being able to agree internally on a candidate.

    There are regional and international dimensions involved, too. It has been suggested that the Iraq interior ministry struggle is a reflection of the contradictive relationship between the United States and Iran in the region as a whole, with Iran backing Badr candidates in Iraq and the United States – finally in possession of some real leverage because of the ISIS threat and Iraqi requests for American military assistance, and tacitly in alliance with Iran against ISIS – strongly objecting to this.

    It is noteworthy that during the parliament session today, Abbadi implored the chamber to approve the nominees whereas parliamentarians of the Shiite alliance (whom Abbadi himself represents) voiced opposition to a vote, saying the interior minister at least should be internally approved in the Shiite alliance first. Deputy speaker Humam al-Hammudi of ISCI at one point tried to stop the vote according to the official parliamentary record.

    Whereas the voting record hasn’t been tied down to individual MPs or even parties, the patterns suggest that parts of the Shiite alliance may have voted No and possibly that there was a revenge No in the vote on the State of Law nominee for tourism (Ali al-Adib). Interior minister Riyad Ghrayb got 117 out of 245 votes, Jabir al-Jabiri 108 out of 251, and Ali al-Adib got only 78 out of 250 votes. By way of contrast, a Sadrist nominee for the water ministry was approved with a more resounding 162 out of 250 votes. Altogether 285 MPs were in attendance, probably a reflection of the realization that a simple majority could have settled the matter of the security ministers and have them approved if those who were against Jabiri and Ghrayb had simply absented themselves.

    Parliament adjourned until Thursday 18 September but it is unclear whether Abbadi will come up with new nominees by then.
    It cannot be stressed enough that these final components of the Abbadi cabinet are among the most important decisions relating to the new Iraqi government as a whole – and as such far more significant than the plethora of international gatherings that are currently going on in the name of defeating ISIS in Iraq. Experiences from Yemen suggest that airstrikes will eventually hit someone that shouldn’t have been hit. In that kind of context, only a durable political coalition in Baghdad can prevent the situation from fragmenting completely. The absence of agreement on security ministers was a key reason the second Maliki government remained so shaky throughout its term, and it is likely this issue, more than anything else, that will seal the fate of the new, so far partial, government put in place by Haydar al-Abbadi.

    IS beheads British hostage in latest video

    IS beheads British hostage in latest video

    Saturday, 04 October 2014 19:56

    Baghdad (AIN) - The Islamic State (IS) militant group released a video and claimed responsibility on Friday for the killing of British aid worker Alan Henning in a video showing his beheading.

    In the one-minute video clip titled "Another Message to America and its Allies," roughly the same as those released after three previous murders, a masked IS militant also introduced another hostage it identified as a U.S. aid worker Peter Kassig.

    The video was found online by the SITE private terrorism monitor and opened with a news coverage about the British parliament's vote last week to authorize air strikes against IS targets in Iraq.

    The masked militant, who carried out the beheading in the video, has the same British accent as the killer in a previous IS video of the death of British hostage David Haines.

    "The blood of David Haines was on your hands, Cameron. Alan Henning will also be slaughtered, but his blood is on the hands of the British parliament," the killer said before he killed Henning.

    He also warned U.S. President Barack Obama, saying that his group will continue to strike "the necks of your people," as the United States has also been carrying out aerial bombardment against his people.

    Alan Henning, who was a taxi driver from Salford near Manchester, was held since 2013 by the Islamic State militants. He was on an aid convoy for Syrian refugees when he was captured by the terrorists.

    Earlier this week, Henning's wife Barbara pleaded with his captors to free her husband in a video message, in which she said that he was innocent under Islamic Sharia law, and his family needed him.

    The extremist militants have already beheaded two U.S. journalists, James Foley and Steven Sotloff, and a British aid worker, David Haines and showed the horrifying process to the world in similar videos on the Internet.



    Premier Barzani Condemns Killing of British Aid Worker
    By Sharmila Devi

    Prime Minister Barzani.

    ERBIL, Kurdistan Region - Nechirvan Barzani, prime minister of the Kurdish autonomous region, has condemned the “brutal and barbaric” murder of Alan Henning, the British aid worker, after ISIS jihadists posted online a video of him being beheaded.

    “When a volunteer leaves his job, family and loved ones to travel to a far away country in order to help displaced and wounded people, we all celebrate him or her,” Barzani said in a statement. “This is what British citizen Alan Henning did.”

    David Cameron, British prime minister, promised to hunt down the terrorist murderers, saying the video released on Friday evening revealed “just how barbaric and repulsive these terrorists are."

    In the video, the masked killer speaks with a British accent and is believed to be the man responsible for previous beheadings. At the end, another hostage - a former US soldier - is shown. He is believed to be Peter Edward Kassig, who had returned to the region as a charity worker after serving in Iraq in 2007.

    “We in the Kurdistan Region are saddened once again, as we were when aid worker David Haines was the first British citizen beheaded by these evil forces around us,” said Barzani.

    “We have been through this kind of suffering and we know how difficult it is, as such inhuman acts are perpetrated against these innocent people solely because of who they are and not because of what they have done.”

    Syrian Kurdish Leader Visits Turkey as ISIS Advances on Kobane

    This was Salih Muslim’s first visit to Turkey in more than a year

    by Jonathon Burch

    ISTANBUL, Turkey – The leader of Syria's largest Kurdish group, the Democratic Union Party (PYD), whose fighters are battling an advance by Islamic State militants in the north of the country, has held talks with official in the Turkish capital, local media reported.

    Friday's visit by Salih Muslim was the first to Turkey in more than a year and could suggest a softening of Ankara's stance as it comes under increasing pressure to intervene militarily against jihadist militants who have laid siege to the Syrian town of Kobane near the Turkish frontier.

    Turkish media reported the PYD leader had not met directly with the Turkish government but had held talks with officials from the country's intelligence agency.

    Since Muslim's last visit to Turkey in July 2013, tensions between Ankara and the PYD, which has close links to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) in Turkey, have flared.

    Turkey views the PYD as an extension of the PKK, which for three decades has fought the Turkish state for more autonomy, and says it is allied with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad who Ankara wants to see overthrown. It is also wary of territorial gains made by Kurdish groups in northern Syria, fearing this could lead to eventual self-rule, emboldening Turkey's Kurds.

    The PYD has accused Turkey of aiding Islamist militants inside Syria, a charge Ankara denies, and of obstructing efforts by Kurdish militias to defend towns along the Turkish border.

    In an interview with Reuters last week, Muslim said he had called on Western states to provide weapons to his embattled fighters but that help had not arrived because, “Turkey and other countries are preventing this because they don't want the Kurds to be able to defend themselves”.

    But the advance by Islamic State insurgents in recent days on Kobane, a largely Kurdish town sitting hard on the Turkish border, has heaped pressure on Ankara to act. Fighting around the town has sent around 180,000 mostly Syrian Kurds fleeing into Turkey and Kurdish officials have warned the town could fall without outside help.

    The United States said it had carried out air strikes with other allies on Friday and Saturday against Islamic State targets in Syria, including four around Kobane, destroying insurgent vehicles and artillery positions. However, so far the strikes appear not to have halted the siege on the town.

    While Turkey has said it will not let Kobane fall to the insurgents, it has been reluctant to take any concrete action, fearing this would strengthen the position of Assad and Kurdish militias linked to the PKK and could invite Islamist attacks inside Turkey.

    Adding to pressure, the jailed leader of the PKK, Abdullah Ocalan, warned last week a peace process with Ankara would break down if the jihadists were allowed to overrun the town. Ankara has been engaged in talks since last year with Ocalan, imprisoned on an island south of Istanbul, to try and end an insurgency that has killed 40,000 people, mostly Kurds, since 1984.

    Highlighting the precarious nature of the talks, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan dismissed suggestions the peace process was in danger but said Turkey viewed the PKK and the Islamic State as one, comments likely to further anger the Kurds who feel Turkey has abandoned them in their fight against the Islamists.

    Erdogan also hit out at U.S. Vice President Joe Biden on Saturday, demanding an apology for comments he made last week that Turkey and other regional countries had supported extremist groups in Syria in a bid to topple the Assad government. Erdogan denied Turkey had supported extremist groups or allowed foreign fighters across its border into Syria.

    The White House later issued a statement saying Biden had apologised to Erdogan for "any implication that Turkey or other allies and partners in the region had intentionally supplied or facilitated the growth of ISIL (Islamic State) or other violent extremists in Syria".

    The incident underscored tensions between the two NATO allies, which have increased primarily over differing views over Syria.

    Washington wants Turkey to take more concrete action against Islamic State and to allow its air bases to be used to launch attacks on the militants but, unlike Ankara, it no longer sees the removal of Assad as a priority. Washington has also shown little interest in Turkey's request for the United States to impose a no-fly zone in northern Syria and extend its air strikes to regime targets.

    Erbil, Baghdad strengthen ties in face of Islamic State

    Erbil, Baghdad strengthen ties in face of Islamic State

    It was never impossible to repair the long-strained relationship between the Baghdad and Erbil governments. Compromise had always been available to both parties. In light of the current threatening situation and the challenges facing Iraq, such solutions are finally helping to put relations between the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and the Baghdad-based Iraqi central government back on track.

    Summary⎙ Print As the Islamic State continues its relentless campaign in Iraq and Syria, the Iraqi government and the Kurdistan Regional Government are realizing the benefits of cooperation and compromise.

    Author Mustafa al-KadhimiPosted October 3, 2014

    Translator(s)Sahar Ghoussoub

    The Kurds have welcomed decisions by Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to release money to pay the salaries of KRG employees, to de-escalate tensions with Erbil and to pledge to work on permanent solutions to crises. There have been significant differences between the two sides for a number of years, but these now appear to be dissipating as the forces of the Islamic State (IS) approach the outskirts of Baghdad and Erbil. This mutual threat has prompted the involved parties to re-evaluate their positions to ensure they can respond to this danger.

    When IS took Mosul in June, influential political actors, some of them close to the former government of Nouri al-Maliki, tried to take advantage of the crisis to sever relations between Arabs and Kurds, promoting the idea that Mosul had been invaded with the blessings of the Kurdistan region. Meanwhile, parties in Iraqi Kurdistan tried to take advantage of the IS threat by advocating the declaration of a "state," believing at the time that IS would only pose a threat to Baghdad.

    The truth is that IS' advances did not represent a logical or good opportunity for making political gains anywhere. As the Iraqi government initially insisted on escalating the situation with the Kurds, the strained relations between Baghdad and Erbil weakened the Iraqi army in the face of IS' expansion. The military results could have been different had the Iraqi army cooperated with the Kurdish peshmerga sooner than it did, as the peshmerga were incapable of effectively confronting IS without help from Baghdad.

    Like in Iraq, no neighboring countries have seen political gains in the IS threat. Instead, they finally began to weigh the danger of the organization, not only to themselves but to the world. US President Barack Obama recently admitted that he and his administration had also misread the situation and did not fully appreciate the threat IS posed from the beginning.

    Iraqis — who have been confronting IS for years in its previous incarnations — should have been aware of its capabilities and earlier realized the magnitude of the threat. Both the Iraqi government and the KRG should have been able to assess the danger from the start. Had they done so, IS' position today would have been much different.

    All parties are now well aware that they have no other choice but to join hands in cooperation and put aside their differences. They must seek to better their relations, redefining authorities, principles and commonalities.

    Relations between Erbil and Baghdad have never been better. There is a great opportunity for both sides to find definitive solutions to the problem of the oil and gas law, which could eliminate several ambiguities defining relations between them. There is also a good chance to solve the crisis of the disputed areas through a realistic plan and vision.

    Although Erbil and Baghdad have embarked on a path toward solutions, it does not mean relations have been resolved. This also does not mean that neither will make mistakes that could lead to re-escalation. Nevertheless, the existence of a common desire by both sides to consider solutions, instead of severing relations, remains the best choice for preserving both their interests in the long run.

    New challenges while Kurds are making victories field in Iraq

    New challenges while Kurds are making victories field in Iraq

    Sun Oct 05 2014 06:57 | (Voice of Iraq)

    including their lack of heavy weapons and air support American in some areas

    Erbil: «Middle East»

    Documenting the successive layers of frescos on the walls of houses towns ravaged by fighters «Daash» change the direction of the wind in the ongoing war in northern Iraq after Kurdish fighters regained (Peshmerga) these towns again. The latest included phrases written on the walls greeting and a tribute peshmerga have written over the oldest phrases, have already been corrected each other, which declares that the houses were «king of the Islamic state».
    The forces retook the Kurdish town after the other until it became controls about half of the land from which it withdrew in August last when hacked fighters «Daash» defenses in the north-west of the country, which prompted the United States in September last to air strikes are First in Iraq since 2011.
    And achieved Kurdish fighters in recent crucial victory with the expulsion of fighters «Daash» of the strategic border crossing Rabia and therefore cut Harianam President of Mosul to Syria, which was used to resupply militant fighters with supplies on both sides of the border.
    The feel of the Kurds in Iraq now that the tide has turned in their favor despite the loss of their brothers in Syria to control the hundreds of towns for the benefit of fighters «Daash» which prompted thousands of refugees to flee to Turkey.
    But to ensure their control over the rest of what they have lost will have to be on the Kurds to overcome a large number of challenges ranging from lack of heavy weapons and air support American in eastern regions near the border with Iran, and the Arab population who reject claims ownership of the Kurds to their land in other areas.
    He explained the Secretary General of the Ministry of Peshmerga Jabbar Yawar's «Reuters» problems faced by his troops along the frontline, and pointed with his pen laser to the troubled areas on the map in front of him, which starts from crossing Rabia on the Syrian border in the north-west, to Khanaqin near the Iranian border. He said: «Our plan is to liberate all our lost territories», explaining how his men will be in the next stage waiting for the Iraqi forces until the liberation of the northern provinces of Salaheddin and western Anbar before they take the initiative to take the next step after that.
    He added: «We can not progress toward Mosul alone. If approached by Iraqi forces of Nineveh, then we will be able to launch joint operations ».
    Still fighters «Daash» dominate the Nineveh plains northeast of Mosul, which is home to religious and ethnic minorities who were displaced in huge numbers with the withdrawal of the Peshmerga from the region in August last year. Since then, the Kurds regained control of all land surrounding the high plains, which give them a strategic advantage on the ground.
    However, the Kurdish fighters believe that it is difficult to defend the flat land in the Nineveh plain, without tanks and armored vehicles. And refers to the Kurds that the weapons sent by the Western countries do not yet match the arsenal «Daash» which include cars «Hummer» American armored Gnmoha of the Iraqi army.
    There was also another obstacle to progress is the Kurds IEDs planted by insurgents «Daash» with the withdrawal, which led to the decline of the Peshmerga from a number of towns seized, and mine counter-attacking fighter bombers.
    Yawar said that the decision was made ​​several weeks ago to halt progress on a number of fronts in order to reduce the victims to receive Peshmerga equipment to detect IEDs from Western countries as well as instructions on how to use them.
    Bahrain has sent a number of such equipment, which is currently training a team of Peshmerga elements to be used at the base of the Kurdish city of Sulaimaniya.
    When the Iraqi army abandoned their bases in the north, the Kurds went forward in an attempt to achieve the aspirations of long-standing in the disputed areas, but found retrieval more difficult than expected. After the fear of over-stretching of the new Pat Kurds are less interested in the adventure to go to areas where they will be most likely resistance from the local population.
    In the area to the south of drunken Erbil, for example, the fighting died down for several weeks, but the Peshmerga were not in a hurry to bring the reaction of the Arab population who reject the occupation of the area. The Kurdish official said Ali Saleh originated in drunken: «we need to Arab force there because of the sensitivity of ethnic».
    It is not clear any Arab force can be used in this matter, is that American and Iraqi officials are planning to engage in the year and national guard forces tend first central authority of Baghdad, and pitting on the Second Year «Daash». In the southern city of Kirkuk, Kurdish forces have found an ally Arabic unexpected represent the Shiite militias that rushed to fight the «Daash» in the absence of any Army there.
