le 14 décembre 2005.


Les élections générales en Irak du 30 janvier 2005 ont été entachées par de multiples irrégularités et fraudes qui ont permis à la coalition des partis kurdes (KDP et PUK) de rafler non seulement la totalité des sièges des trois provinces qui sont sous leur contrôle depuis 1991 (Arbil, Duhok et Sulaymaniya) mais aussi de s’approprier la majorité des sièges dans les autres provinces du nord du pays (Kerkuk, Salahaddin et Diyala) où ils sont nettement minoritaires, au détriment des Arabes, des Turkmènes et des Chaldo-assyriens.

Ces fraudes et irrégularités ont permis à la coalition des partis kurdes de s’approprier 55 sièges sur un total de 275 et de devenir ainsi le deuxième groupe parlementaire le plus important du pays et de s’imposer sur le plan national comme un groupe parlementaire incontournable pour former le gouvernement et diriger le pays avec un pouvoir nettement disproportionné par rapport à sa représentation réelle dans le pays.

Israel hopes to colonize parts of Iraq as ‘Greater Israel’

Israel hopes to colonize parts of Iraq as ‘Greater Israel’
By Wayne Madsen

(WMR)Israeli expansionists, their intentions to take full control of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip and permanently keep the Golan Heights of Syria and expand into southern Lebanon already well known, also have their eyes on parts of Iraq considered part of a biblical “Greater Israel.”


Israel reportedly has plans to relocate thousands of Kurdish Jews from Israel, including expatriates from Kurdish Iran, to the Iraqi cities of Mosul and Nineveh under the guise of religious pilgrimages to ancient Jewish religious shrines. According to Kurdish sources, the Israelis are secretly working with the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) to carry out the integration of Kurdish and other Jews into areas of Iraq under control of the KRG.


Kurdish, Iraqi Sunni Muslims, and Turkmen have noted that Kurdish Israelis began to buy land in Iraqi Kurdistan, after the U.S. invasion in 2003, that is considered historical Jewish “property.”


The Israelis are particularly interested in the shrine of the Jewish prophet Nahum in al Qush, the prophet Jonah in Mosul, and the tomb of the prophet Daniel in Kirkuk. Israelis are also trying to claim Jewish “properties” outside of the Kurdish region, including the shrine of Ezekiel in the village of al-Kifl in Babel Province near Najaf and the tomb of Ezra in al-Uzayr in Misan Province, near Basra, both in southern Iraq’s Shi’a-dominated territory. Israeli expansionists consider these shrines and tombs as much a part of “Greater Israel” as Jerusalem and the West Bank, which they call “Judea and Samaria.”


Kurdish and Iraqi sources report that Israel’s Mossad is working hand-in-hand with Israeli companies and “tourists” to stake a claim to the Jewish “properties” of Israel in Iraq. The Mossad has already been heavily involved in training the Kurdish Pesha Merga military forces.

Reportedly assisting the Israelis are foreign mercenaries paid for by U.S. Christian evangelical circles that support the concept of “Christian Zionism.”


Iraqi nationalists charge that the Israeli expansion into Iraq is supported by both major Kurdish factions, including the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan headed by Iraq’s nominal President Jalal Talabani. Talabani’s son, Qubad Talabani, serves as the KRG’s representative in Washington, where he lives with his wife Sherri Kraham, who is Jewish.


Also supporting the Israeli land acquisition activities is the Kurdistan Democratic Party, headed by Massoud Barzani, the president of the KRG. One of Barzani’s five sons, Binjirfan Barzani, is reportedly heavily involved with the Israelis.


The Israelis and their Christian Zionist supporters enter Iraq not through Baghdad but through Turkey. In order to depopulate residents of lands the Israelis claim, Mossad operatives and Christian Zionist mercenaries are staging terrorist attacks against Chaldean Christians, particularly in Nineveh, Irbil, al-Hamdaniya, Bartalah, Talasqaf, Batnayah, Bashiqah, Elkosheven, Uqrah, and Mosul.


These attacks by the Israelis and their allies are usually reported as being the responsibility of “Al Qaeda” and other Islamic “jihadists.”


The ultimate aim of the Israelis is to depopulate the Christian population in and around Mosul and claim the land as biblical Jewish land that is part of “Greater Israel.” The Israeli/Christian Zionist operation is a replay of the depopulation of the Palestinians in the British mandate of Palestine after World War II.


In June 2003, a delegation of Israelis visited Mosul and said that it was Israel’s intentions, with the assistance of Barzani, to establish Israeli control of the shrine of Jonah in Mosul and the shrine of Nahum in the Mosul plains. The Israelis said Israeli and Iranian Jewish pilgrims would travel via Turkey to the area of Mosul and take over lands where Iraqi Christians lived.

A Litmus Test for Iraq

Reidar Visser

January 30, 2009

(Reidar Visser is a research fellow at the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs and editor of the Iraq website


Former Iraqi Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari arrived in Basra on January 24. His mission in the southern oil port was to stump for his Reformist Front, a breakaway faction of the Da‘wa Party of the current premier, Nouri al-Maliki, ahead of Iraq’s January 31 provincial elections. His itinerary included visits to the Five Miles area — often described as a stronghold of the movement loyal to the young Shi‘i leader Muqtada al-Sadr — as well as a rally at a sports stadium. Only days earlier, he had been preceded by Maliki himself, and in the first days of 2009 numerous other national politicians trooped to Basra as well.

 The Iraqi Turkmen Front (ITF) issued an official protest to the High Commission for the Elections in Iraq on 31st January 2005 complaining about widespread irregularities committed by the Kurds in the Turkmen region.


The document details extensive voting abuses by Kurds, including:


·         Kurds voting outside of their legal districts

·         Multiple vote casting by numerous voters

·         Allowing youths under 18 years of age to vote

·         Allowing votes of dead people

·         Allowing voting of some people in two different election centres

The following is the English translation of ITF’s letter of protest.



To the High Commission for the Elections in Iraq

C/O The Kerkuk Bureau of the High Commission for the Elections in Iraq.


Ref : Contestation of irregularities during the voting process.


According to the legal rights that were granted to the political parties and organizations in order to contest any irregularity during the election process of 30th January 2005 which began in the morning and ended by closing the voting centres at 5 p.m. and in accordance with our conviction and belief that these elections must be clean and fair in order to establish a true democracy in Iraq, we are sorry and deeply concerned to inform you that too many irregularities have been committed during these elections which no doubt will affect its results.



Despite your declarations to the press and to the television news networks that the elections have been `almost’ clean and fair, we have encountered numerous problems to vote, have observed multiple irregularities in voting centres and have been subjected to illegal behaviour and unfair treatments in polling centres in our region, in the provinces of Kerkuk, Mosul, Salaheddin and Erbil. These voting problems, voting irregularities, illegal behaviour from election officials, and unfair treatment of Turkmen voters in voting centres are intolerable and are contrary to the rules and regulations issued by your Commission, they are also against the basic laws of the country and must be denounced and the perpetrators must be condemned.

Iraq’s Provincial Elections: Kurds are positioning their Peshmerga militias in front of the Polling Centres of Tuz Khurmatu

The Peshmerga stand in front of the polling centres in
Tuz Khurmatu.

ITC Media Kerkuk
29th January 2009

Yesterday, two police members, one of whom was an officer, have been killed in front of one of the polling centres in the city of Tuz Khurmatu (75 Km south of Kerkuk).
As usual, the identities of the perpetrators of these assassinations are not known.
Using these attacks as a pretext, the Kurds have brought the Suleymaniya battalion from the fourth squad, known as Peshmerga, to Tuz Khurmatu and they have positioned 15 elements of this battalion to each of the city’s polling centres with an excuse of weakness in security. This, despite the fact that a battalion from the Governorate of Salaheddin had arrived immediately after the attack as has been confirmed by an official source from the Ministry of Interior.

When the Tuz Khurmatu branch of the Iraqi Turkmen Front objected to this procedure the Kurds suggested they would position their Peshmerga 200 meters from the polling centres. ITF refused this proposal and demanded the withdrawal of the Peshmerga outside the boundaries of the city.

The Iraqi Turkmen Front asked the government authorities to intervene immediately and together with other political parties ITF demanded that the security of the polling districts should be under the responsibility of the Ministry of Interior in order to ensure the transparency and impartiality of the elections so as to avoid the vote rigging and forgeries committed by the Kurds during the January 2005 elections.

Extract from Member of EU Parliament, Paulo CASACA’s (*) book:

The Hidden Invasion of Iraq”.




Regarding the Funds the EU allocated for the reconstruction of Iraq and the Iraqi Electoral Process


Page 182 to page 187



Being the spokesperson for the socialists of the Budgetary Control Committee, this is my most important responsibility within the European Parliament.  I was particularly interested to know the whereabouts of the 800 plus million Euro that had been approved within the European Budget for the Iraqi reconstruction in the first five years of the post-Saddam era, and I was puzzled to realised that none of my Iraqi friends, members of the Parliament, Governors or former ministers, had ever heard of any European cooperation effort to Iraq.
