BAGHDAD — The killings take place in public and are captured on surveillance footage. Those videos are then watched by millions. But even if the gunmen are identified, no one is prosecuted, and the cycle starts again. Across Baghdad and southern Iraq, a rising tide of attacks on activists and journalists is alarming what remains of a protest movement that has demanded the ouster of Iraq’s U.S.-molded political system and the usually Iran-linked armed groups that prop it up. Mass…
On Sunday Iraqi protesters stormed the Iranian regime’s Consulate in the southern Iraqi city of Karbala. This incident happened after the Iranian regime’s proxy groups assassinated a prominent activist, Jawad al-Wazni.   This development again showed how Iran’s terrorism and malign activities had destroyed the lives of Iranians and all the people in the region. It also underlines the fact that the mullahs’ regime is a threat to global peace and security.   Protests swept Iraq in October 2019, with people targeting the Iranian regime’s destructive…
The Islamic Revolution of 1979 overthrew the Iranian monarchy and installed a clerical regime that upended centuries of Shia clerical tradition concerning politics. Traditionally, the Shia clergy had abstained from exercising formal political or executive power in state institutions. The Guardianship of the Jurist, the foundational principle of clerical rule in Iran, rejected the prevailing apolitical inclinations of the Shia clerical establishment, instead arguing that only high-ranking clerics are qualified to exercise political authority as leaders of an Islamic state.…
The Iraqi government's deadline for an investigation into the Ibn Al Khatib hospital fire, which killed 83 people, passed on April 30 without any official announcement. The hospital was gutted by a ferocious inferno five days earlier, thought to have been caused by an exploding oxygen cylinder. The disaster stunned a nation accustomed to tragedy – witnesses said many of the victims were burnt alive. A day after the fire, Prime Minister Mustafa Al Kadhimi suspended the health minister, Hassan…
Iran’s destructive actions in the Middle East are a major concern for the countries in that region and for the rest of the international community. Since the start of the mullahs’ rule in 1979, one of the regime’s main destructive activities has been its meddling in the Middle East. Terror acts, kidnapping, the foundation of extreme proxy groups and their support, misusing Islam in the favor of its satanic ideology, suicide attacks and many other acts are only in the favor…
At least 82 people are dead after a horrific fire swept through the Covid intensive care unit of one of Iraq's main hospitals over the weekend. The Iraqi prime minister has suspended the nation's health minister over the incident. It's been reported the blaze began when an accident caused an oxygen tank to explode at Ibn al-Khatib Hospital in Baghdad. According to media reports, the hospital "had no fire protection system and false ceilings allowed the flames to spread to highly flammable products". The tragedy,…

Winds of change are blowing in Baghdad Tuesday, 20 April 2021 17:06

April 20 (UPI) -- For years, Iraq's future has been determined by its theocratic neighbor, the Islamic Republic of Iran. The Iranian regime's vicious meddling in Iraq has caused growing resentment and resistance from the Iraqi people. There are now signs that the mullahs' vice-like grip may be beginning to waver. But Iraq is not the only problem facing Tehran. As the Biden administration sends yet another delegation to Vienna to continue negotiations on reviving the defunct Joint Comprehensive Plan of…
NASIRIYAH, Iraq — When the call came to fight the Islamic State, the lines of volunteers here stretched for blocks. Friends pooled money to pay for transportation to local militia recruitment offices. Young men were already scrambling onto buses bound for the front lines. “Back then, it was just about one thing,” said former militiaman Thamer al-Safi, recalling the battles of 2014 in which two of his brothers died. “This was about our future. This was about Iraq.” That mass…
BAGHDAD — It was a stark message: A convoy of masked Shiite militiamen, armed with machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades, drove openly through central Baghdad denouncing the U.S. presence in Iraq and threatening to cut off the prime minister’s ear. The ominous display underscored the growing threat that rogue militias loyal to Tehran pose for Iraq. It came at a time when Baghdad seeks to bolster relations with its Arab neighbors and is gearing up for early elections, scheduled for…

Iraqis are getting fed up with Iran Thursday, 25 March 2021 21:35

Astain on Iraq’s sovereignty.” That is how an Iraqi army officer describes the billboard glorifying Qassem Suleimani, a stunningly successful Iranian commander who was killed in an American air strike on Iraqi soil in January 2020. The hoarding looms over Baghdad’s administrative district, known as the Green Zone. Many Iraqis once hailed Suleimani as hero for mobilising local forces that beat back the jihadists of Islamic State. But public sentiment in Iraq has turned. The masses who cheered Iran as a…
The Iranian regime’s military interventions in the region are now an unambiguous reality that nobody inside or outside of Iran can honestly deny. Despite this, however, Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei keeps repeating his tired old claim that Iran did not intervene in Syria and Iraq militarily, with Tehran only having an advisory role in these countries. Khamenei’s contradictory remarks on this issue in recent years have repeatedly exposed his dishonesty. On one occasion, he was quoted as saying: “If the…
