If You Do Not Have a Religion and Are Not Afraid of the End…Then Be Arabs…
The words of Imam Hussein peace be upon him remain eternal when he was addressing the Ommayyad Arab army. What he is said is the following. The Arab does not kill his prisoner, does not insult his guest, do not assault women, does not kill children. It is the Arabic honor and manhood.
When Islam came I read a lot of the beautiful qualities that distinguished the Arab, but they killed Imam Hussein, and deported his families and children and there was no other person on the planet beside himself to be the grandson of the prophet, so imagine.
When you read the Arab history the tragedy repeats itself, and so does the violation of human rights, the violation of the forbidden, the violation of religion all under our so called Arab history although history is written by the ruler in the name of Allah.
But it becomes clear on the pages of the Arab history images that make the fair Arab be ashamed to be related to this history, but it appears that these shameful images have become the pride of some people and it was incarnated by some people from generation after another and it was very clear after the removal of the criminal Saddam from his rat hole–this criminal who brought the Iraqis into wars that they have nothing to benefit from and he pushed four millions Iraqi citizens into Diaspora all around the world. The pictures of millions of his victims were all over the media, but he remain the pride of some people!!!
I want to talk about an Arab ruler here and expose his positions just for reminder because unfortunately we forget very quickly and here lie the tragedies. If we remember we repeat the motto “May Allah forgive the past”!!! this motto that brought us woes and destruction.
My honored brethren
Egypt is the pumping heart of Arabism as some people like to call her. Egypt sent millions of Egyptians during the Iraq-Iran war to fill the void that was caused to Iraq and the Iraqis by the dirty fool who fought defending the so called Arab nation against the Persian invasion!!! The Iraq was dying defending the Arab nation but the Egyptian was replacing him in daily normal life!!!
When the United States decided to remove Saddam the regime of murderers in Baghdad then Hussnei Moubarak barked his famous words: “America liberates her enemies!!!” And he tried with all his international capacities to prevent the United States from liberating Iraq from the regime of murderers. His speeches were made public and they are not hidden.
Today, Egypt the pumping heart of Arabism has became the sanctuary to the enemies of the Iraqi people. From Egypt came the Channel of “Michaan Al Jabouri” who incited the killing of the Iraqi people. From it came the “Al Baghdadia Channel” and here is what I personally followed up on regarding this Channel when I was in Baghdad seven months ago.
There was a program called “an edict session”. The cleric was a Sunni Iraqi as he called himself and he resides in Jordan. During the program the cleric sheikh addressed the following verse from Koran: “In the name of Allah the most merciful the most compassionate. Oh messenger; tell what was given to you from your Lord. If you do not do so then you have not given his message”. He explained the verse live on “Al Baghdadia” TV which is owned by Mr. “Tarek Al Hashimi” the Iraqi Vice President and the candidate from the Accord Front. The Sheikh said: “There are heretic groups who explained the verse based on the establishment of companion, and that is an attack against the prophet and the companion. The religion is the religion is the Sunni and there is no other religion but this one. Some who visit the tombs and worship someone other than Allah and that is called poly-deity”. I am not here in a position to comment and he who wants to verify these statements that “Al Baghdadida” channel broadcast on 5/13/2008 in their program “an edict session” then let him correspond with “Al Baghdadia” channel and verify it himself. I do not want to talk a lot about the member of the “Accord Front” like “Zafer Al Aani” the representative of the people in the parliament or his colleague “Adnan Al Doulaimi” where we all heard and saw in our own eyes on the TV screen how he behaves as we are seeing a “Ommayyad” with all the characteristics of an “Ommayyad”
It is not strange that a reporter from “Al Baghdadia” channel welcomed the President of the United States with this subhuman style and he is the guest of Iraq and with him the elected Prime Minister. These people ( Al Baghdadia journalist) only understand the language that they used (throwing shoes at President Bush) because freedom and democracy are not for the murderers and animals from “Al Baghdadia” channel, and “Al Jazeera” channel, and thank you Hussnei Moubarak.. Thank you all the Arab Moukhabart (intelligence services) who thought that Iraq and its people are villagers from the villages of Kureish…you have been disappointed…what you have done to the honored guest of Iraq (President Bush) is nothing but a continuation of your history…but the new Iraq is free from this collar. Iraq is back to its legitimate owners. There is no place for murderers in the new Iraq. The genie is out of the bottle.
For the free word and for the dignity of the journalists, I send an invitation from this forum to each journalist who wants to keep journalism away from dirt, to denounce this act that is far from the manners and far from the good taste. From your information, the ex-lawyer of Saddam formed a team from one hundred lawyers to defend this journalist who is foreign to journalism and I call for the shutting down for “Al Baghdadia” channel which proved herself and those who work for her that they are a tool from the tools of division and murder.
