The leader of Iraqi armed resistance against US occupation, Muqtada al-Sadr, who destroyed Zionist poodle Gen. David Petraeus plan to turn Iraq into a US-Israel colony, has now been declared Iraqi Gandhi by Zach Abels at The National Interest on April 24, 2016. The news website The National Interest is chaired by no other than Zionist Jew war criminal Dr. Henry Kissinger, former US secretary of state.
Muqtada al-Sadr’s family has a long history of national resistance against foreign occupiers. Al-Sadr family lead the Great Iraqi Revolt against British colonists in the 1920s. Later the family lead Shi’ite revolt against Saddam Hussein in 1991 and 1999. Several of Muqtada al-Sadr’s relatives were killed by Saddam Hussein’s secret service. He refused to join any of regimes installed by the US during 2003-2011 occupation.
Muqtada, 42, is against co-operating with the United States in the regional conflicts. In 2014 he urged Iraqi prime minister Haider Abadi not to join the US-lead coalition of absurd to fight ISIS, created by the US and Israel.
Contrary to western propaganda, Muqtada and other Iraqi Shi’ite religious leaders were not influenced by Iranian Islamic revolution while they lived in Iran in exile. In reality Iraqi Arab Shi’ite scholars like Ayatollah Mohsen Al Hakim, Ayatollah Abu al-Qasim al-Khoei, and Ayatollah Baqir al-Sadr teachings left great marks on Imam Khomeini during his 13-year exile in Najaf (Iraq). Their writings along with lectures by Egyptian reformer Sayyid Qutb were translated into Persian language and used as revolutionary literature against Reza Shah rule.
On April 30, during a news conference in Najaf, Muqtada al-Sadr condemned prime minister Haider Abadi government for creating religious sectarianism, corruption and lawlessness. He demanded Abadi to farm a new government consisting of technocrats. Muqtada al-Sadr is against the 2003 US-authored religious quota-based Iraqi Constitution that favors Shi’ite majority (65%) over Sunni and Christian minorities. Haider Abadi was chosen by Washington to replace Nouri al-Maliki, who fell from Washington grace for inflicting heavy losses to ISIS.
“US war on ISIS has nothing to do with the saving the lives of Christians, Kurds and Yazdis. It all boils down to a regime change in Baghdad by scaring the hell out of Iraqi lawmakers. Prime Minister al-Nouri’s forces were defeating the ISIS rebels in the area which are strategically important to the US and Israel,” Pepi Escobar says in Op-Edge at RT on August 12, 2014.
On May 1, thousands of al-Sadr’s supporters flooded the US-built fortified Green Zone housing Iraqi parliament, government offices and the US embassy to voice al-Sadr’s demands.
On May 3, Dan Sanchez, posted an article highlighting Muqtada al-Sadr leadership behind Iraq’s recent Green Zone Revolution and why the American establishment hate him.
“Over the years, Sadr’s tactics have evolved: from armed resistance to working within the political system, and now to street protests. The masters of the universe in Washington bewail the anti-corruption demonstrations as “destabilizing.” Yet they have no qualms about themselves funneling billions of dollars through NGOs into similar protests around the world to foment “color coded revolutions” against regimes it disfavors. Among many others, there was the Rose Revolution in Georgia, the Orange Revolution in Ukraine, and the Green Revolution in Iran. Apparently the ‘Green Zone Revolution’ underway in Iraq is a shade of green that Washington doesn’t fancy,” says Sanchez.
