Iraqis Reject Such Democracy

The Zionist entity “Israel” is enjoying a false reputation of being the most democratic “state” in the “Middle East”. It is so described by its creators and sponsors, the United Sates and the West in general. This “democratic” entity usurped the land of Palestine in 1947 and committed crimes of genocide and it is still committing them until this very day against the native of Palestine.
The United States also, like the Zionist entity, committed crimes of genocide against the American Indians and established itself on the ruins of the natives. It built its glory on the blood and sweats of the African slaves and claims to be the most democratic state in the World.
The United States learned an infamous lesson from “Israel” a lesson of terrorizing the people of Iraq. The destruction of Iraq, its occupation and colonization is a proof to our allegation.
American soldiers used bulldozers to destroy the monument and grave of Michel Aflaq, a modern Arab thinker and a philosopher. His grave in Baghdad was leveled to the ground. The museum and the mosque in the same compound were demolished. This criminal move is directed against our culture, religion, history and human values. Michel Aflaq was a respected figure and a giant among giants who challenged tyranny and oppression. He was the champion of Arab values and the voice of hope for Arab Unity, Freedom and Democracy.
American soldiers took their bulldozers and uprooted palm trees and destroyed orange groves and lemon trees in central Iraq as part of collective punishment for not cooperating with the occupying forces, this was a lesson they learned from their allies, the Zionists who occupy Palestine, adding insult to injury, they were playing jazz music in full blast during the operation of destruction. This act made the Iraqi farmers more hateful of the Americans and their act.
Nusayef Jassim, one of 32 farmers who saw their fruit trees destroyed, said: “They told us that the resistance fighters hide in our farms, but this is not true. They didn’t capture anyone. They didn’t find any weapons.” Other farmers said that US troops had told them, over a loudspeaker in Arabic, that the fruit groves were being bulldozed to punish the farmers for not informing on the resistance, which is very active in this district.
US exported “democracy” to Iraq brought them misery, starvation, poverty and a destruction they have never experienced before the invasion. Along with this “democracy” drugs were brought to Iraq in order to ruin the health and minds of Iraqi youth, a generation that suffered tremendously under the genocidal sanctions that the United States and Britain maintained for more than a decade.
Peace and security are of no existence under the occupation. Iraqi women are scared to go to the streets alone. They are afraid of being abducted and raped. Most of the children are not going to schools and their parents rather have them stay home for their safety.
Unemployment is at its highest level. Iraq became bankrupt. Its wealth is in the hands of Washington. Bremer, who was the American ruler of Iraq, was the one that decides who gets a job or not, and now Iran became the partner of the United States in controlling Iraq
The Iraqi people know that “imported US democracy” is a hallucinating drug that they reject and dare to say no to such democracy. The Iraqi resistance to occupation is the only answer for Iraq liberation and salvation from the US – Persian nightmare.
