    Why should we prevent the Mullah’s interference in Iraq?

    Let us talk again about the oil tanker that was filled with forged ballots and was seized by Iraqi guards while it was crossing the boarder from Iran into Iraq. The Iraqi boarder guards say that the ballots were partly completed and apparently the truck driver told the guards that he know of at least three other trucks that had crossed from Iran.

    There is no doubt that this is only the tip of the iceberg. If that one truck driver knew about three other trucks, you can imagine the actual number. Who really knows how many of these fake ballots actually made it to the polls?

    We should understand that Iran’s meddling has not been limited to filling fake ballot boxes but the Mullahs for some time have been spending millions of dollars to bribe, blackmail and even to kill candidates.

    The aims of these Mafia style activities are to paralyze independent parties and candidates so that they give up the election to Tehran supported candidates.

    The US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice called on international community Tuesday to help find a way to stop Tehran from creating problems for its neighbor.

    But how can you stop the Mullahs in Tehran? They see their own death in democratization process of Iraq.


    So let me emphasize here that Iran will absolutely not give up Iraq. They are even willing to go to war with the US over it and if there is going to be a war, Mullah’s prefer to fight it in Iraq rather than in Iran.

    And maybe that is what is going on in Iraq: “a war.”

    For the rest of us, we should use every means in our power to slash Iran’s hands off from Iraq. Even further, let me say this, the danger of Iran controlling Iraq is far greater than its nuclear and atomic danger.


    Hamas extends victory in Palestinian local poll

    By Mohammed Assadi

    RAMALLAH (Reuters) – Hamas extended local election gains from the fractured ruling Fatah party on Friday and Israel said that if the Islamic militants won Palestinian political dominance it would end any hope for peacemaking.

    Hamas, committed to destroying Israel, appeared to profit from division in Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah movement and gained an important boost ahead of a January parliamentary election from the latest West Bank polls.

    Blasts heard near Interior Ministry in Baghdad


    BAGHDAD,(Reuters) – A series of loud explosions which could have been mortar rounds was heard in central Baghdad on Friday near the heavily fortified Green Zone.

    Police said the blasts had occurred near the Interior Ministry but could not say if there had been any casualties.

    At least five explosions were heard the day after Iraqis voted in largely peaceful elections for their first full-term parliament since the fall of Saddam Hussein in 2003.

    Militant Shi’ite’s New Role in Iraqi Government

    MEN’S NEWS DAILY , Friday, December 16, 2005

    By Al Pessin

    Washington – With Iraqis electing their first democratic four-year government, attention is shifting to what the country’s long-term political landscape might look like. Much attention has been focused on defeating or placating Iraq’s mainly Sunni Muslim insurgency. But there is growing concern about the role of some segments of Iraq’s Shiite Muslim majority, which is expected to hold power in the new government – segments that have already shown their willingness to use violence to get what they want.
