In an unprecedented interview with the Commander
of the Iraqi National Resistance Mr. Izzat al Duri! *
No! I wasn't surprised by the rumor of my death,
for it aims to divert attention from the US impasse in Iraq!
I am thinking seriously to air a recorded
document through TV channels to refute the enemies' claims!
Seif Al Juneid
The magazine al Majd is utterly happy to be
the only and unique information tribune chosen by the Comrade Mujahid Izzat al
Duri, the Commander of the Heroic and Victorious Iraqi Resistance, to make the
first press declaration after the tendentious rumors which aimed first and above
all at sowing confusion into the ranks of the Resistance and weakening its
But cursed always be the enemies and the
stooges, and to hell what they have been hatching and weaving. Here is the
Leader (Abu Ahmad) appearing from Al Majd tribune, as strong as ever, healthy,
capable and resolute to snatch victory, to defeat the occupier, and to liberate
the total soil of the Land of the Two Rivers.
And because this victorious Leader who in
charge of the Baath Party as a Deputy Secretary General after the detainment of
the President Saddam Hussein, is far much greater than to be introduced or to be
presented for his qualities are well known to everyone. Here is the text the al
Majd Iraqi correspondent, made with Comrade Abu Ahmad, in amongst the sounds of
bombs and shelling, bullets raining, from the battlefield and the raging
* Why there was some confusion about your
death rumors, your Excellency is still alive by the grace of the Lord; we would
like some explanation about these rumors?.
- We are not at all surprised by such
rumors which show the massive impasse the US got trapped into the day it decided
to aggress Iraq and to occupy it. That is why the US administration is trying to
divert the public opinion to other matters and to distract the world away from
the fundamental problem which is in fact the failure of the US project in Iraq
and its defeat at the hands of the soldiers of the truth, the heroes of the
Iraqi National Resistance, and whatever is undertaken by the enemy propaganda
machine aims to mix cards and to give a hazy picture of what is going on in
*Why your Excellency doesn't record an
audiocassette to be published through TV channels like Al Jazeera, etc. to prove
to the world that your Excellency is still running the affairs?
-I agree! This is very important! But you
know in the past this hasn't been possible for obvious reasons and we are
studying this issue, which will get our full attention in the very next future,
*What is your opinion, your Excellency,
about the Cairo Conference for National Accord, precisely what are your special
conditions and those of your companions to negotiate with the Occupation?
- The Party and the Resistance opinion were
clear about the so-called Cairo meeting, on this particular question the Party
has issued more than a statement. Our position didn't change and our friends and
our enemies know that well.
* The citizens and Congress anger and the
wrath are growing by the day in the country of the number one occupier, where
demands are made to quickly withdraw from Iraq, does your Excellency expect the
occupation withdrawal with the beginning of next year?
- We praise the Lord who gave victory to his
faithful servants and returned the wickedness against the wicked,
themselves. Bush lies and his aggressors and cruel allies' have been exposed.
All the people of the world, not only the US, are fed up with the empty
arrogance and impertinence of those in the US who call for war and murder. We
are dealing here with a moving terrain where every kind of probability could
happen any time. We will deal with any of these according to our own interests,
to strengthen our victory, God willing, (For if God gives you Victory, no one
can triumph upon you) God is trustworthy in his word.
*The government of stooges is asking the
occupation forces to stay claiming that will prevent a civil war. Has your
Excellency got the full confidence and the national guarantees to prevent such
war in between Sunnis and Shias when the occupiers withdraw?
- It has become now a common knowledge that
the stooges, the traitors and the spies have linked their fate with our
homeland occupier's fate. It is natural that they yell for help and cling to the
occupiers to continue their occupation of Iraq. The Occupiers and their stooges,
know pretty well that they are living their last moments in our beloved and
dearest Iraq. All Iraq problems and complicated conditions are due to the
occupation, they will fatefully disappear with the end of the Occupation,
because the people of Iraq has always been and will always be a unified people,
never to be divided on sectarian grounds, ignorant racism which have been
brought by the occupiers and their stooges from outside of our borders.
*The Kurdish north is about to be an
independent state, you can't even see over there the Iraqi flag, and in this
region they undertake ethnic cleansing against Arabs. Do you think that the
Kurdish region got separated effectively and forever, or is it a temporarily
separatism it will end when the occupation will end?
-The most important problem today in Iraq is
the occupation. The occupation is the root of the Iraqi very suffering. When the
occupation ends every thing which has been set and produced by it will
disappear. Concerning our sons and daughters in the self-determination area,
which is a truly dear and important part of our people and our Homeland, and we
truly care about whatever can answer their legitimate rights within the frame of
a unified and free Iraq as a homeland and as a people and as a sovereign state.
As every one remembers we never held back anything they asked for! On the
contrary the legitimate Iraqi government was the only one in amongst all the
regional regimes, which gave the Kurds their rights within the
self-determination law. However this law can be developed in whatever way to
serve better our people in Erbil, Dohuk, and Sulaimaniyah after the liberation
of Iraq soon, God willing.
*Every week we hear a responsible in the
government of stooges shouting his mouth off and saying that Syria is supporting
the "insurgents" and is opening its borders to the Arab combatants flowing to
Iraq. Is there effectively any Syrian support, or are they just hollow pretexts
and despicable lies, in order to encircle and then attack Syria?
-The campaigns against our sister Syria must
be understood as a US reaction to its failure in Iraq. You have probably noticed
and we will notice soon that such rowdy declarations increase whenever the US
impasse gets deeper and the US confusion gets greater in Iraq. It is not a
question of clandestine combatants or an outside support. They are just
mere pretexts and despicable lies against the others. It is a US plan to get
absolute hegemony over the whole region. The US campaigns will grow and will not
only stop against Syria; they will probably go beyond against other countries.
Before the occupation, our national leadership did warn our brothers and our
friends about the US plans and we cautioned about the nature of the US
colonialist project objectives to control the countries of the region.
That is why giving in to the US will not
stop it, rather it will encourage it to get more aggressive, and to impose more
conditions and exercise bigger pressure. The only and important thing, which
disrupts the US evil plans, is the resolute answer of the Iraqi National
Resistance and its defiance against the occupation forces and stooges.
*We often hear about the Iranian
interferences against the Sunnis and the Iraqi resistance, and mainly through
Badr militias and the Revolutionary Guards and some Hawzas. How can you value
the Iranian role in your country?
- The role played by Iran into the
aggression against Iraq and the participation into its occupation is a
well-known fact today. There is a large coordination between the US
administration and the Iranian regime. Both are deeply sunk and up to their
necks into committing the most horrible crimes of killing and mass murders
against all the sections of our people. The Iranian role will continue as long
as there will be an occupation. It will end once the occupation disappears.
* Is Zarqawi a real name on the Iraqi
scene? And if Zarqawi really exists how do you value its role? Do you have any
contacts with his organization and his activities?
-The US administration and its stooges try
to maintain a blackout on the real heroic and honorable role of the Iraqi
National Resistance, through spreading lies such as clandestine combatants
through the borders, etc. This administration fully knows that the ones who slit
its throat in Iraq and the ones who put its nose into the mire are the sons and
daughters of Great Iraq. The use of these vocabularies aims at confusing the
World and the US opinion in particular, in order to continue fooling them
concerning "Al Qaida" organization, and give Bush justifications to go on with
his aggressive wars against the peoples of the world and specially his
aggression against the people of Iraq and occupy it under the fallacious
slogan of "fighting terrorism". In Iraq, we must remember that, before the crime
of its occupation, the word terrorism or terrorists were unknown. The ones who
are guilty of terror and terrorism are the occupiers and their stooges for
they, who target our people through killing, detention and torture. Those who
defend Iraq with courage, honor and dignity are the heroes of the Resistance
with all its heroic factions.
We are always at your disposition to answer any
question and what ever you want; we are very close to you!
