Iraq .. Is the political consensus back or continue civil disobedience?

beautiful return since 2003 and to date, Iraqi power-sharing on a consensual basis ensures political, sectarian and national components through their representatives in the presence of the three legislative, executive and judicial authorities.

This sharing of power not only includes senior positions; but extended to ordinary public servants, which form "cantons" have institutional affiliations factional impose its control over state institutions and pass the "agenda" of political and social under the cloak of "political consensus."

This kind of "consensus government" social components, or under the name of "social components" led practically to a loss of rights and social components, the same Warsi sectarian approach, racism and the demolition of the principle of citizenship, equality and social justice.

Has been accompanied by a huge waste of public money, sometimes as a result of the abuse of power and bypass the law, and at other times because of the prevalence of the phenomenon of corruption, nepotism and bribery among the ruling political classes, making all the reports of Transparency International, and since 2003, and yet, give to the Corruption Perceptions Index in Iraq ratios are very high.

It was in the 2005 Arab worst, be sure and under the worst global table. It makes sense to find these "opportunistic" policies that are the owners representing more than political affiliation, nationality or religion, the reaction of the Iraqi citizens at different times and in different circumstances, different places.

Yes, maybe different provinces of the naysayers, and perhaps different Chkhosm, and perhaps expanded or narrowed their demands, but on the whole they reflect the "nonviolent resistance," but rarely, departments Iraqi authority and its characters with different backgrounds and orientations.

This refusal escalating spread over large areas of the territory of Iraq, is no longer confined to the federal capital, "Baghdad," but included the capital of the Northern Territory "Erbil" as governors and provincial councils, districts and areas in the governorates not organized in a region covered.

It was also logical to think of leading the helm of government in three levels, a thousand times and again, what's happening or could happen if the administration insisted on his back and ignore the "reformist" demands until the end.

But the insistence of the political leadership in the country to belittle those demands and deal with them selectively, and conceptualize it and within the limits that can not cross the demonstrations being governed determinants, and the reliability of the load of others, whether they are current or former responsibility for what happens partners, was behind the access to "worst management" in the modern history of Iraq from the party, and a broader social phenomenon needed from another party.

Now, after the entry of demonstrators Green Zone, and the storming of the parliament building, sit in the halls, and hit some of its members and staff, and trapping others to "coordinate" unspoken with protecting the security of the region forces as alleged, and with the prospect of expansion of paper "incursions" to include building the institutions of the Iraqi circles financial and security inside the green or outside without a formal declaration of the political party to adopt these "intrusions" makes the political process on the brink of a hole, it makes the entire Iraq in the wind in particular that the war with al "Daash" is still in its early stages.

You should not be questioning the intentions of those in charge of the reform, nor in the movement of the demonstrators.

In any case their demands are not sectarian or partisan demands, but are the demands for social sliced ​​wide that were not reflect the whole of Iraqi society.

But those demands did not find in its early stages before entering the House of Representatives be heard by the ruling authorities, but procrastination pretext Allakedrh a major overhaul and the existence of political pressure exerted by powerful blocs character demands on the goals established, albeit supported by some or supported on the surface.

However, we should not be optimistic too much, and should not lose sight that the lack of a rapid response to the demands of the protesters on the one hand, and the inability of the supporters of the "popular uprising" tuned and organization could lead to attacks on the lives of citizens and public and private property, and could lead to chaos again and spend the rest of the structures of the three powers and mingle promiscuity TASER.

There is no doubt that the success of the reform movement in achieving its goals, does not come through the creation of chaos, and the insistence of the "government" to ignore those demands will not be a reason to stop the demonstrators and protesters claim their rights in the correctional authority to provide them with security sense and political wisdom and the economy, because the march of chaos and march but ignorance does not lead to more violence and counter-violence. Thus, it is essential that everyone is working on:

(1) that the dialogue between the authorities and the "protesters" continue and not stop and should not be ignored, and that the purpose of this constructive dialogue to drag the whole society of officials and citizens to mutual understanding, so that the continuation of dialogue means the continuation of the reform movement in achieving its objectives and increase its strength, and in strengthening the dialogue stopped the chaos and the destruction of the whole system which is not acceptable to everyone.

2. The advocates of the reform movement and its activists should be aware that the lack of timidity from power must not lead to a cut of dialogue, as a result of the enthusiasm in pushing forward the resistance unexpectedly thoughtful. If the opponent is the initiator of cutting -lospab Tktekah- dialogue it would increase the possibility of creating a direct dialogue between a group of activists on the one hand and between the citizens on the other.

This development is common in the movement of "non-violent resistance." If you usually resistance begins gradually, likened Gandhi this process to ascend the stairs, in the famous Salt March when he broke the Indians British colonial law and began Astkhalson salt from the sea, one of the journalists Gandhi asked what he would do if the authorities did not respond ..

He replied: "Then maximized campaign ". So the dialogue between the resistance and the system continues.

The dialogue here is not just talk, it means messages exchanged through the activities and reactions to them.

If you had to be a dialogue between the parties; because it is the only way that saves the state and its prestige, it must be a dialogue between the reformists and Aldan power to form a satisfactory government of the two parties ends, its leadership transition from corruption, to reform and goodness, and Allaaml to work, and Allamhacbh accounting, and Allabina to construction, with the continued support of the people to bring the government of sick of all the parties, and popular support not only means blessed and support, but the hard work to build a strong community, which has institutions capable of supporting the government's program. And the role of government in this period is necessary to provide for the establishment of these institutions facilities.

Here we have to focus on that reformist activity represented by the sitters aims to open a dialogue with the opposition and convince him of the need to respond to the demands of society does not control and suppression, and that the ruling server community performs his will not work on servitude, if the regime is convinced that a dialogue with representatives of society parties and pressure groups to get real gains to the community and not to the movement or party, but declined to dialogue or reject popular demands of society accept its real power and activity which is not stopped by an individual or group of individuals at the helm. .................................................. . **
