Iraqi Resistance Report for events from Monday 22 December through Wednesday, 24 December 2003. Translated and/or compiled by Muhammad Abu Nasr, member, editorial board The Free Arab Voice.
Monday, 22 December 2003.
Two large explosions shook the center of the Iraqi capital on Monday
evening but it was not immediately clear whether the blast had caused
The Iraqi Resistance escalated its attacks today against the
occupation troops. A roadside bomb exploded near a US occupation
military convoy Monday, killing two American occupation soldiers and
an Iraqi translator collaborating with them, the US military said.
Two other soldiers from the 1st Armored Division were wounded in the
attack that occurred at about 11:45 a.m. in Baghdad.
In Kirkuk the Iraqi Resistance detonated an explosive device in front
of a hotel in which foreigners were staying. Five persons, including
two security men and three foreigners were wounded.
The US occupation command also admitted on Monday that four American
occupation troops were wounded , one of them seriously, in the blast
of an explosive device planted on a road near ar-Ramadi on the road
to al-Habbaniyah. One of the soldiers, he said, had serious injuries
to his head, while the three others sustained light injuries.
An official in the Northern Oil Company said that a new attack had
been made at an oil pipeline linking the Kirkuk Oilfields with the
Bayji refinery causing a fire.
An official in the fire fighting department of the company said that
he was, at the time of the interview, still unable to say whether the
blast resulted from a bomb or some sort of missile or shell.
The Iraqi puppet police announced that two unidentified armed men
killed a member of the security apparatus of the Baathist Iraqi
government on Monday in the center of Kirkuk. First Lieutenant Salam
Jalal Zankanah said that Saddam Isma'il Muhammad, 38, was struck by
five bullets in front of his house in Kirkuk.
In an-Najaf, southern Iraq, al-Jazeera TV reported on the authority
of sources in the Iraqi puppet police that occupation troops
disarmed an explosive device on Monday morning. The device had been
planted at the house of 'Abd al-'Aziz al-Hakim, the head of the
puppet so-called Interim Governing Council who is also the head of
the Iranian-backed so-called Supreme Council of the Islamic
Revolution in Iraq (SCIRI).
One Iraqi citizen was killed and another injured on Monday when
American occupation soldiers opened fire on them as they were leaving
Tikrit, according to the one of the wounded Iraqis who spoke later to
the Agence France Presse (AFP).
US aggressor troops overnight arrested an Iraqi intelligence officer
suspected of directing anti-American attacks and raided a Baghdad
mosque. Sunday night, US occupation troops detained ex-army General
Mumtaz al-Taji at a house in Baaqoubah, about 30 miles north of
Baghdad. "Tonight, we were on a mission to capture a former Iraqi
intelligence service general who we believe is recruiting former
military members of the Iraqi army to conduct attacks against US
forces," Major Paul Owen of the 588th Engineer Battalion told
Associated Press Television News. "He runs a very active cell in our
sector, and hopefully, what we have done tonight is to stall some of
his efforts," Owen said. More than 30 soldiers took part in the
raid, in which a rifle, pistol and ammunition were seized. Al-Taji
is not on the US occupation list of the 55 most wanted Iraqis.
Thirteen fugitives from that list remain at large.
In southern Baghdad on Sunday, soldiers backed by helicopter gunships
surrounded the al-'Atiqah mosque, ordered everyone out and searched
it until early Monday, a worker at the mosque told APTN. He said
troops used a blowtorch to break through a metal door into a secure
area where they found one assault rifle. The mosque is used by Sunni
In other towns, US occupation troops in tanks, Humvees and Bradley
armored vehicles imposed curfews and roadblocks and went house to
house, smashing through doors in the search for guerrillas and
weapons. Among targeted towns are al-Fallujah, a center of
resistance west of Baghdad; Samarra', 75 miles north of Baghdad;
Jalulah, northwest of the capital; and Rawah near the western border
with Syria, where aggressor troops cynically dubbed the
raids "Operation Santa Claws." In Samarra', a 70-year-old man died
when US aggressor troops put a bag over his head and prepared to
detain him Sunday night, Iraqis said. Neighbors said Mahdi al-Jamal
died of a heart attack.
One person was killed during an airborne raid Sunday in Jalulah, on
the house of a shaykh (tribal leader) suspected of directing local
Resistance, said spokeswoman Major Josslyn Aberle of the 4th Infantry
A 60-year-old woman was killed Sunday and two other Iraqi women
injured when US aggressor soldiers blasted open the reinforced steel
door of the woman's home, said Lieutenant Colonel Henry Kievenaar,
who was directing the US aggressor Army's 3rd Armored Cavalry
Regiment in raids in Rawah.
In Mosul, al-Arab al-Yawm reported that two Iraqi citizens were
wounded when a rocket-propelled grenade intended for an American
column hit their car instead.
Meanwhile, eyewitnesses said that a group of students of the
University of Diyala grew angry when a number of American occupation
troops took part in a basketball competition and they launched angry
demonstrations rejecting the presence of the American occupation
forces in their country.
US aggressor troops have since Sunday been carrying out raids and
house-to-house searches in the city of al-Fallujah. US occupation
forces closed of the districts of ash-Shuhada', ar-Rusafi, and Nazal
in the center of al-Fallujah and began raiding the isolated
Ahmad 'Adnan, a resident of al-Muhandisin neighborhood said "the
American forces arrested my father, Lieutenant Colonel 'Adnan 'Abd al-
Latif Isma'il who was an officer in the last border center in the
Taribil district on the Iraqi-Jordanian border. They also arrested my
brother Mu'idd who is 20 years old and a university student."
Another source who preferred to remain anonymous said "the American
forces also arrested 'Abd al-Majid Hammadi, a member of the branch of
the Baath Party. The American forces are searching for Baathists and
army officers and for weapons in house-to-house searches and they are
not letting anyone at all to come out or go in during their
searches." He added that the Americans were using loudspeakers to
call on the people of al-Fallujah to capture what they
called "terrorists and criminals," and they are promising rewards.
The US occupation forces are distributing leaflets advertising a
reward for anyone who informs on a 'terrorist'.
In Baghdad, the US occupation military authorities have resorted to
force and threats of force to cope with a severe fuel shortage caused
by persistent attacks by Iraqi Resistance, determined to deny the
occupation the benefits of profits from Iraqi oil. US occupation
forces put out flyers threatening to jail people who sell gasoline on
the black market. The flyers cited new laws providing for
confiscation of the goods, fines of double the value of the goods and
jail sentences of three to 10 years. An official in the puppet
administration was quoted on Sunday as admitting that capacity
production at Iraq's refineries had been cut in half by Resistance
attacks (See Iraqi Resistance Report for Sunday, 21 December 2003.)

Iraqi Resistance fighters attacked an American aggressor patrol in
the center of Mosul on Tuesday, wounding one US occupation soldier,
according to an American military occupation spokesman. Eye
witnesses said that a man opened machine gun fire on the American
patrol and then departed in a car. The witness said that the
attacker drove at high speed and, as a result collided with another
car, whereupon he jumped out of his car and escaped on foot. US
occupation soldiers found a weapon in the car he had abandoned.
Prominent Turcoman Judge Yusuf Khurshid was shot to death by "unknown
attackers" in the city of Mosul during Monday to Tuesday night,
according to an officer in the puppet police.
The Iraqi Resistance attacked a US military convoy delivering
occupation currency newly issued by the invading forces to a bank in
Mosul. One person described by the Agence France Presse (AFP) as
a "private security firm employee" working for the American
occupation was wounded in the attack. A rocket-propelled grenade
(RPG) hit a Humvee, wounding an employee from Global Security, which
is under contract to the coalition to accompany shipments of the new
currency around Iraq, said Major Hugh Cate of the 101st Airborne.
The man, whose nationality was not known, was rushed to a combat
hospital after the attack.
Brigadier General 'Ali 'Abbud Salim, the general director of the
puppet police for the protection of installations in an-Najaf said
that his men discovered on Tuesday an artillery piece trained on the
offices of the Iranian-backed collaborationist so-called Supreme
Council of the Islamic Revolution in Iraq (SCIRI) which is led
by 'Abd al-'Aziz al-Hakim. He said that although his men were able
to take control of the artillery piece, they were unable to capture
the person who put it in place.
One Iraqi puppet policeman was wounded when he tried to break up
clashes between Arab, Kurdish, and Turcoman students. Sources in the
Iraqi puppet police said that three Kurdish students were arrested
and one Turcoman in the aftermath of these clashes that took place at
the Kirkuk Technical Institute between Kurdish students on one side
and Turcoman and Arab students on the other. According to the puppet
police report, the clashes broke out when Kurdish students refused to
raise the Iraqi national flag during a New Year celebration. The
Kurds objected to the words "Allahu Akbar" ("God is greatest") which
are emblazoned on the flag in keeping with the addition made by Iraqi
President Saddam Hussein during the period of the 1990-1991 30-nation
aggression against Iraq. These clashes also followed demonstrations
by Kurds in Kirkuk in recent days calling for the ethnically mixed,
but oil-rich, city to be added to the Kurdistan region that lies to
the north of the city.
As a result of the dispute, the Director of the Institute canceled
the celebration and called for all the Iraqi, Kurdish, flags and that
of the Turcoman Front to be taken down. But the Kurdish students
refused to bring down their flag and attacked one member of the
police force, which act impelled the police to arrest a number of the
US occupation forces claim to have arrested 16 Iraqi Resistance
fighters in the city of Kirkuk, in the north of the occupied
country. Colonel Khattab 'Abd Allah 'Aref, puppet emergency police
director in Kirkuk, said that the American occupation forces
supported by individual members of the Iraqi puppet police, arrested
armed Resistance fighters after they obtained information that they
were planning operations against the main base of the US occupation
forces in the city.
Elsewhere, sources within the puppet police reported that the
American occupation troops had arrested 20 members of an Islamic
group led by 'Ali Babir in Kirkuk on suspicion that they are
supporters of the Ansar al-Islam Islamist organization that is
fighting against the occupation. US occupation forces arrested Babir
himself in July.
In Baaqubah, US occupation forces claim to have arrested three armed
Resistance fighters, among them one man whom they describe as the
head of a cell that was in contact with the Deputy Chairman of the
Revolution Command Council of Iraq, 'Izzat Ibrahim ad-Duri.
American Lieutenant Colonel William Adamson said that the three
prisoners are members of "extremist religious organizations" and
claimed that they had carried out attacks in the cities of Baaqubah,
al-Fallujah, and ar-Ramadi. Adamson also claimed that the US invader
forces had discovered another cell that he described as "important",
four of whose members had been taken prisoner. Adamson described one
of those men as a high-ranking officer in the former Iraqi
intelligence service, but gave no further details.
An Iraqi puppet police official said that puppet so-called Civil
Defense units disarmed an explosive device in the center of
Baaqubah. He said that "the device weighed 10kg and was of a remote-
controlled type that usually targets American soldiers."
Hospital sources report that ten elderly persons have been admitted
to hospital after taking part in a general hunger strike in the city
of Kirkuk to demand the release of their relatives being held by the
American occupation forces. About 65 people, most of them women, on
Sunday began a hunger strike in front of the Iraqi Institute for
Human Rights in Kirkuk to demand the release of 1,500 individuals
whom the American occupation authorities have held since they
occupied the country in April.
According to the Jordanian newspaper al-Arab al-Yawm, personnel of
the Iraqi puppet police are beginning to question their role in
occupied Iraq in a situation in which they are targets for the Iraqi
A puppet police Lieutenant al-Qaysi, working in the ad-Durah puppet
police station in Baghdad which was the target for a Resistance
operation at the end of October that left 35 people dead, said "I
feel afraid every day when I come to work." The walls of the
building in which Lieutenant al-Qaysi works are still splattered with
the bloodstains of those who were wounded and died in October, and he
and his colleagues must enter the building over a rough path laid
down over the crater left by the Resistance bomb. Birds have come to
nest in the badly damaged building.
The puppet police force has a crucial role to play in the American
occupation's scheme for Iraq as the invaders hope to reduce their
military presence in the country and hand over many of their tasks of
repressing the populace to local agents. But the Iraqi puppet police
are finding that this "crucial role" is fraught with deadly dangers.
Puppet police Lieutenant 'Ammar Salman said that the Iraqi police had
little to do before the fall of the Saddam Hussein regime, "but now
when we are doing something they blow us up and assassinate us."
To try to prop up plummeting morale, US Proconsul L. Paul Bremer
promised a "danger bonus" to all puppet policemen who have become a
favorite target of the Iraqi Resistance.
Nevertheless recent weeks have seen a rising wave of resignations
from the puppet security forces, with about 300 men resigning from
the first brigade of the new puppet Iraqi Army, before even finishing
their training and deployment.
Meanwhile, Polish President Alexander Kwaszniewski who visited Polish
troops fighting for the Americans in occupied Iraq said on Tuesday
that the multinational occupation forces which are operating under
Polish command could possibly begin a "gradual withdrawal" beginning
in the year 2005.
Special Report: Ahmad Chelebi proposed partition of Iraq in meeting
Ahmad Sabri, the Baghdad correspondent for the Jordanian daily al-
Arab al-Yawm, writes as follows in the Wednesday, 24 December 2003
edition of the paper:
A source in contact with the Iraqi Governing Council has disclosed
details of the meeting that the American President George Bush had
during his secret visit to Iraq with a number of members of the Iraqi
Governing Council, in particular as concerns the outlines for the new
Iraqi entity. The source, who preferred to remain anonymous told "al-
Arab al-Yawm" that one of the leaders of the Iraqi parties
represented in the Iraqi Governing Council who was among the group of
people who met Bush proposed the partition of Iraq into four
formations, on the basis of Iraqi society's national and religious
situation, in the framework of a new federal arrangement.
The source explained that the new Iraq, according to that proposal
would be made up of a Shiite entity embracing the southern provinces
and a Sunni entity that would include a part of Baghdad and the
provinces of the west of Iraq. The Kurds were to have an entity made
up of the northern provinces. Baghdad itself, according to the
proposal, would become a greater capital with a special status in
which all elements in Iraqi society would have a share.
Although the source would not disclose what Bush's response to the
proposal was, he did say that the American President promised to
study the proposal. The source also disclosed that the name of the
man who proposed the partition of Iraq was Ahmad Chelebi, chief of
the so-called Iraqi National Congress.
It will be remembered that this matter is on the minds of sectors of
Iraqi public opinion and has impelled six Iraqi political parties to
form a preparatory council to work out a proposal for the formation
of a broad national front to respond to the needs of the new stage.
"Al-Arab al-Yawm" has learned that the parties referred to above are:
1. The Arab National Current, represented by
2. The Arab Socialist Movement,
3. The Kurdistan Democratic Party,
4. The Patriotic Union of Kurdistan,
5. The Democratic Bloc of Independents, led by 'Adnan al-Pajahji,
6. The Democratic Patriotic Party, led by Nasir al-Jadirji.
The formation of the nucleus of this front comes just days after the
Kurdish coalition in the Governing Council proposed a draft of the
Law of Confederation outlining the Kurdish vision for the new Iraq.
The Kurdish area, according to that draft, is to include the
provinces of Irbil, as-Sulaymaniyah, Dahuk, Kirkuk, and parts of the
provinces of Diyala and Mosul.

Wednesday, 24 December 2003.
The Iraqi Resistance detonated a roadside bomb in the Samarra' area
north of Baghdad on Wednesday, killing three American occupation
soldiers and totally destroying their vehicle, the US military
occupation said. "Three Task Force Ironhorse soldiers were killed
when the vehicle they were in was struck by an improvised explosive
device," the US military said in a statement. The attack occurred at
about 9am as the soldiers traveled in a convoy near Samarra'.
Explosions rocked Baghdad and automatic gunfire could be heard in
southern parts of the occupied Iraqi capital city early on
Wednesday. US occupation forces told al-Jazeera satellite TV that
the noises came from an operation being carried out by the American
invaders against armed Resistance fighters who were taking up
positions to shell the so-called Green Zone where the occupation
forces' headquarters is located.
Eye witnesses reported that US occupation fighter planes took part in
bombing targeted areas in the environs of the area of ad-Durah. This
attack is said to be a part of an operation by the aggressor forces
known as Operation Iron Justice which is being carried out by the 1st
Armored Division which is based in occupied Baghdad.
The explosions, which sounded like artillery fire, according to a
report by the Agence France Presse (AFP), began about 00:30 am (2130
GMT) and carried on for about 20 minutes, laced with bursts of
automatic weapons fire near the southern suburb of al-Durah. Aircraft
Harith al-'Urs who owns an ironworks said that the bombardment was
focused on the al-Buwaytah agricultural area, and commented "there
was gunfire on the Americans and they responded."
The US military occupation had just canceled an invitation for media
to observe artillery fire Wednesday on positions from where they
believed the Iraqi Resistance was shelling occupation forces in
Baghdad. Later the US military occupation announced that US
helicopter gunships backed an artillery bombardment aimed at the
Iraqi Resistance in southwest Baghdad, as troops raided homes and
arrested a Sunni tribal leader.
It was the second straight night during which thunderous explosions
and an aerial bombardment of the ad-Durah area in Baghdad was carried
on. Eyewitnesses said that what was going on was a "real war" with
the American occupation forces using various types of weaponry,
including aircraft and artillery, while the Resistance put up a tough
and resilient fight. Intense explosions were heard without letup for
three hours, witnesses reported. The occupation, as is usual for
them, disclosed not losses in dead or wounded in the engagements.
The sound of explosions dissipated by morning on Wednesday, having
begun to reverberate throughout the entire city of five million
shortly before midnight.
In northern Iraq, a martyrdom bomber of the Iraqi Resistance
detonated an explosives-laden pick-up truck outside the office of the
Kurdish chauvinist so-called "Interior Ministry" in Irbil, near
Kirkuk, and four people, including the martyred driver, were killed
and some 101 others injured, according to the so-called "ministry,"
which said that the attack occurred at about 11:50am local time on
Wednesday. In addition to the martyred driver the dead included two
puppet policemen and a man described as a "civilian." Employees of
the puppet "ministry" working for the occupation were among the
The force of the blast blew out windows in buildings surrounding the
offices of the puppet "ministry" in the northern city, which,
according to the Agence France Presse (AFP), is controlled by a
Kurdish chauvinist faction, the Kurdistan Democratic Party, which is
collaborating with the US occupation of Iraq. The blast left a huge
Wednesday evening the Resistance fired a mortar shell at the Sheraton
Hotel in Baghdad, a residence of many foreigners working with the
occupation authorities. The occupation did not report any casualties
Meanwhile the body of an American soldier who drowned in the Tigris
River when he tried to save one of his companions was recovered on
Wednesday, 13 days after his death. The body was found after what a
US communique described as an intense search in which military
police, and American air and naval forces took part.
Two puppet policemen helping the occupation and two civilians were
killed in a bomb explosion west of Baghdad.
An adviser to the puppet "minister of science and technology"
Khidr 'Abd al-'Abbas Hamzah survived an attempt by the Iraqi
Resistance to execute him in Baghdad. An explosive device blew up
under the armored vehicle he uses for riding about in the occupied
One Iraqi puppet policeman who was on a joint patrol with occupation
forces was killed in the al-Jaza'ir neighborhood in the center of
Mosul when the Iraqi Resistance opened fire on them. Forensic
medical doctor Ahmad 'Abdallah Rajab said that the puppet
policeman "died instantly as he was struck by four bullets in the
The Mosul puppet police headquarters was also attacked but there was
no report of casualties in that incident.
On Wednesday, a minibus detonated a roadside bomb in a Baghdad
traffic tunnel, killing one civilian and wounding two others,
according to the Iraqi puppet police. The bomb exploded in the Shurta
tunnel around noon. Puppet police commissioner Murtada Sattar said
that the "explosive device detonated after an Iraqi police car passed
through the entrance to a tunnel in the ad-Dawudi district, damaging
a minibus and a private car."
Baghdad paid its last respects on Wednesday to four Sunni
worshippers, one of them a child, who were shot to death and martyred
Wednesday at dawn as they left the gate of a Sunni mosque in the
predominantly Shiite Washshash neighborhood. Shaykh 'Abd as-Salam al-
Kubaysi, a member of the Sunni Board of Muslim 'Ulama' said that the
gunmen who killed the four "were driving a car from which they opened
fire at the four persons, killing them." Al-Kubaysi said that this
attack was part of a series of incidents designed to spark a
sectarian war and blamed "an ouside power", evidently implying Iran,
for the attacks. Al-Kubaysi said, however, that "the Sunnis in Iraq
are aware of this danger and will not be drawn into it."
In Kirkuk on Wednesday students and puppet security sources said that
two Arab students were injured in the city in clashes with puppet
police who were trying to prevent Arab and Turcoman demonstrations.
The clashes erupted, the sources said, when hundreds of Arab and
Turcoman students attempted to leave the University campus to
demonstrate in front of the headquarters of the Governorate. Despite
the efforts of the puppet police, some 500 students forced their way
ahead and gathered in front of the Governorate building where they
waved Iraqi flags.
Muhammad YaSin Isma'il, a student in the College of Technology and a
leader of the students said "two students – Ahmad Yusuf and
Tareq 'Aziz Hitlawi – were seriously injured in clashes" for which he
blamed "Kurdish members of the Iraqi police." Officer in the puppet
police Salah 'Ali confirmed the fact that the students were injured.
US occupation forces continued their wave of raids and arrests
capturing more than 70 Iraqis in recent days in attacks in Mosul,
Baaqubah, al-Fallujah, and the environs of Baghdad and Kirkuk.
US aggressor forces arrested Shaykh Ghazi Hanash, the shaykh of the
at-Tayy tribe in Mosul who is related to Iraqi Vice President 'Izzat
Ibrahim ad-Duri. American aggressor sources say that they killed one
of the shaykh's bodyguards and wounded Hanash's daughter in the
course of their raid. The AFP said that Hanash's home was marked by
bullet holes and broken glass after the attack.
Shaykh Hanash's son and two aides were also arrested by the American
occupation troops in the raid, according to Ghassan Hamadi, a cousin
of the shaykh who spoke to the Associated Press from the tribal
leader's residence. AFP reported that three of the shaykh's sons
were detained by the US occupation forces. Occupation forces also
captured a man whom they describe as a high ranking Iraqi
intelligence officer by the name of 'Abd Allah Jasem Ahmad.
US occupation troops arrested 26 Iraqis in al-Fallujah, including
officers in the Iraqi Army.
In Kirkuk the occupation forces assisted by Iraqi puppet police
arrested 16 Iraqis whom they accuse of involvement in carrying out
attacks against the Americans in the city. They also arrested 20
members of a small Kurdish Islamist group known as al-Jama'ah al-
Islamiyah which the Americans claim has links to Ansar al-Islam, a
Kurdish Islamist organization frequently said to be associated with
al-Qa'idah and involved in the Resistance.

Assalam o Alaikum,
America has now fully established itself as the Nazi, Terrorist & War Criminal of three centuries ----- 19th, 20th & 21st. Nazi America can also be rightly described as the anti Moses "Firoun" of the contemporary time, whose incinerating desire is to establish a complete political, geographical, sociological and economic dominance upon the world and if that requires the brutal massacre of millions of innocent every year all over the world -------- so be it.
America attaches NO value to the human life whatsoever and it wants its hegemony at any rate, at any cost & at any price.
Time has now come, not just for the world of Islam but for the peace and justice seeking entire world also, to stand up and institute a series of periodic obstructional impediments in way of the terroristic juggernaut of Nazi America currently sweeping the entire world. Militarily, this ideological thinking cannot be given a viable practical dimension but in the economic battlefield, Nazi America can be given an impressive and worthwhile opposition leading to the subsequent, eventual, imminent, inevitable and much awaited economic destruction of the biggest Terrorist in the world ------ Kennedy Terrorist America.
( American Terrorism is now appropriately described as Kennedy Terrorism. This terminology originates from John F Kennedy whose criminal use of contraband chemical substance led to the sad and immediate death of hundreds of thousands men, women and children in Vietnam. This war crime has also earned J F Kennedy a remark of "CHEMICAL KENNEDY", which he fully deserves )
This economic battle in the battlefield can be won with great ease, only if all concerned people all over the world conclusively decide to institute a FULL & PERMANENT boycott of all American Products. Here it is worth pointing out that for any boycott to be painfully effective and effectively painful, it must incorporate ALL enemy products and must be progressively pursued with steady patience for a number of years. Boycotting just a few pieces of merchandise & commodities for a brief period of time registers no worthwhile impact on an economic scale and exerts NO influence whatsoever, upon the economic foundations of the enemy.
Our anti American campaign consists of 6 pillars and we urge all to boycott :
1) Coca Cola
2) Pepsi Cola
4) Burger King
5) Kentucky Fried Chicken
Coca Cola and Pepsi Cola, which are nowadays described as " Blood Colas " because of the fact that they contain blood of the muslims, derived from the entire islamic world in the form of economic theft, are the highest selling soft drinks all over the world. They also contain many non islamic ingredients prepared out of alcohol & pork.
A FULL & PERMANENT boycott of Blood Cola should be instituted by all members of the Islamic Society in all parts of the world and a much better cola by the name of Qibla Cola ( www.qibla-cola.com ) should be consumed as an alternative. Those who are the regular drinkers of Qibla Cola, like us, are fully aware of the fact that it tastes thousands times better than the American produced Blood Colas and is also free of anti islamic ingredients, which form as constituent parts of the unislamic American Colas. Furthermore, 10% of all the sales proceeds of Qibla Cola are deposited in the accounts of the renowned and well known Islamic Charities ----- a kind islamic gesture which goes a long way in terms of providing food, help and shelter for many monetarily impoverished muslims in the islamic countries.
Purchase of Qibla Cola acts as a two edged sword of Islam. It greatly lends a progressive assistance towards the revolutionary causes of Islam alongwith its adherents, and simultaneously, it accelerates the course of impatiently awaited obliteration of the American economic foundation also.
According to the calculations carried out by our Finance Department, if only 10,000 active FAMILIES, regularly consuming Blood Cola stop its purchase just for a period of 6 months, ONE Blood Cola factory in America can be closed down permanently ::
- 10,000 Boycotters of Blood Cola can permanently close down ONE factory in USA in 6 months.
- 20,000 Boycotters of Blood Cola can permanently close down TWO factories in USA in 6 months.
- 30,000 Boycotters of Blood Cola can permanently close down THREE factories in USA in 6 months.
- 50,000 Boycotters of Blood Cola can permanently close down FIVE factories in USA in 6 months.
- 100,000 Boycotters of Blood Cola can permanently close down TEN factories in USA in just, just, just, just 6 months.
Closing Down of the Blood Cola Factories ----------- Good News for all
4.Appeal to UN/ Solidarity with the Fedayeen Attacks Sent to the Iraq Resistance Solidarity Network
Bismillah Hir-Rahman Nir-Rahim
As-Salaamu' Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatu
I call on all the members of the Fedayeen resistance to target each and every one of the Zionist masked hirelings. Their masks will not save their lives as they stand at checkpoints or other places in Iraq. Shoot them on sight for they are the enemy of the People.
The occupiers want to force the Iraqis to hate Al-Mujahid President Saddam Hussein with tanks and bullets and sheer brute force but we shall love him more with each passing day. Al-Mujahid Saddam Hussein was, is, and always will be, better than Bush and his criminals. We shall not stop demanding his release no matter what the occupiers do. They cannot break the will of the Arab and Muslim nation with their tanks and bullets and brutality. The whole world is watching them as they shoot and kill disarmed Iraqi protesters. Now they see that even the children in the schools are not safe from American Zio-Nazi brutality. The world is witnessing everything that the occupiers are doing and the whole world knows that they are in violation of every rule in the Geneva Conventions and International law.
I have appealed to the United Nations to vote a joint Council/General Assembly Resolution declaring the invasion and occupation of Iraq as illegal and demanding the immediate withdrawl of all occupying forces. We hope that the United Nations will not unreasonably delay or hesitate to do what is just. The whole International community is cognizant of the illegality of the invasion and occupation of Iraq and it is the responsibility of the United Nations to demand an end to what is illegal and to sanction members who are acting in total violation of UN Charter, International law and the Geneva Conventions. If ever there was an opportunity for the United Nations to make itself 'relevant' it is now.
The deplorably brutal situation in Iraq coupled with the deplorably brutal situation in Palestine will not remain contained forever. We shall seek revenge on the occupiers day and night from one end of Arabia to the other. The stability of the entire region is in play. We shall never tire and never surrender. We shall fight for our human and political rights and we shall not be silenced by the brutality of those criminals who crossed oceans to decimate our land, usurp our resources and humiliate us. The dignity of the Arabs and Muslims are NOT for sale at any price. There are masses of Iraqis demanding the release of Al-Mujahid President Saddam Hussein and their voices shall not be muted by tanks and bullets. The love that we have for Saddam is a huge threat to the criminal occupiers. So much so that they are running amok in the country shooting anyone who kisses a picture of Saddam Hussein. They don't care if they shoot and manhandle unarmed children in Iraqi schools. They do not hesitate to make children stand for hours in the freezing cold (as if freezing that child were going to freeze the love in his/her heart for Saddam). They murder our people and then refuse to hand over the bodies to humiliate us further. They know that our custom is to bury our dead within 24 hours but to humiliate us they deprive us of the bodies of our martyrs for proper burial. They do not hesitate to throw rockets into gardens where children are playing while they claim to be the 'liberators' of the Iraqis. We reject American democracy as the law for our lands and we tell America (and its piglets) to store their democracy in their rectum and blow it down the toilet. Iraq (and indeed all of Arabia) will NEVER be a clone of American democracy and to force it upon us is death to them. We refuse to recognize the Zionist appointed Iraqi Governing Council and we will refuse any Constitution that they draft.
DEATH TO THE ILLEGAL IRAQI GOVERNING COUNCIL....they are Zionists criminals and nothing more
DEATH TO THE HYPOCRIT OCCUPIERS !!! SO LONG AS THEY REMAIN ON OUR LANDS DEATH WILL BE THEIR CONSTANT COMPANION.
They will curse the day that they ever set foot in Iraq or any of our lands.
WE SHALL NEVER TIRE AND NEVER SURRENDER until our President is released and the occupiers are ejected from our land.
WE SHALL SEEK REVENGE NIGHT AND DAY....EYE FOR EYE....TOOTH FOR TOOTH !
LET THE DEBASERS BE DEBASED....AND THE DESPICABLE BE DESPISED ! ALLAH is with us and since HE is with us there shall be no one to stand against us.
Again I call upon the Fedayeen (and all the resistance in Iraq) to target the masked hirelings of the Zionist occupiers day and night and to keep the fire of Jihad burning a thousandfold every day. Tanks and bullets are no match for us.
May ALLAH shower oceans of blessings on our beloved Prophet Muhammad(sws) and his progeny.
May ALLAH bless Al-Mujahid President Saddam Hussein and his Mujahideen.
May ALLAH bless Shayhk Osama bin Laden and his Al-Qaeda.
May ALLAH bless Shayhk Yassin and his Hamas and May HE bless all of our resistance forces everywhere.

Diaries Arresting Children
Jo Wilding, Electronic Iraq
18 December 2003
"Two days ago there was a demonstration after school finished, against the
coalition and for Saddam. Yesterday the American army came and surrounded
the whole block. They just crashed into the school, 6, 7, 8 into every
classroom with their guns. They took the name of every student and matched
the names to the photos they got from the day before and then arrested the
students. They actually dragged them by their shirts onto the floor and out
of the class."
They wouldn't give their names. The children at Adnan Kheiralla Boys'
School in the Amiriya district of Baghdad were still scared, still seething
with rage. Another boy, Hakim Hamid Naji, was taken today. "They were
kicking him," one of the pupils said. A car pulled up and a tall, thin boy
ran into the school, talked briefly with staff and left again. The kids
said the soldiers had come looking for this boy too.
The headmaster, too, was reluctant to speak. No, he said, looking down at
the desk, there were no guns. But Ahmed, an English teacher, followed the
soldiers on the raid. "The translators had masks or scarves because maybe
they are from this area. They came and they chose several students and they
took them. The demonstration started after school on Tuesday. I advised
them not to do it because I am their teacher and the Americans don't care.
The children had pictures of Saddam Hussein from their text books and
that's all, so they demonstrated and just said we want Saddam Hussein.
"There were no leaders, this wasn't an arranged demonstration. It comes
honestly, some of the students say, we love Saddam Hussein. Some of the
students say no, we hate Saddam Hussein. I told them, it's OK, let them
love him and let them hate him, we can all express our opinions. There are
no weapons, there is no bombing."
"The American soldiers came with tanks and stopped the demonstration and
the kids sat in front of the tanks. They took pictures of the students and
they had some spy maybe, I'm not sure, maybe students in the school. I
begged the soldiers to leave these students because they are naïve, they
just believe this is a civilian demonstration, but the soldiers were very
rude to the students and treated them like soldiers. They are kids, they
are teenagers, so I begged the officer, but he didn't care.
"I told them, just calm down, but they said no, they are not kids. In Abu
Ghraib we have 16 year olds shooting at us. I said yes, but these are in
school. They have books, not weapons. And they took pictures of us, what is
your name, stand here. I am not a criminal, I am a teacher. They took
pictures of most of the teachers.
"I told them you have to educate people about freedom, not punish them, but
they brought tanks and helicopters. Yesterday they surrounded the school
and came in with weapons everywhere, soldiers everywhere and used tear gas
on the students. They fired guns to scare them, above their heads. One
student got a broken arm because of the beating. They had some sticks,
electric sticks and they hit the students. Some of them were vomiting, some
of them were crying and they were very afraid."
All the other teachers and students who talked to us backed Ahmed's version
over the headmaster's: the soldiers were armed when they came into the
classrooms. One of the arrested boys decided he trusted Ahmed enough to
talk to the people that Ahmed told him were safe, as long as he wasn't
recorded and we promised not to identify him in any way. He wouldn't give
his name or age.
"The soldiers pointed at me and I was grabbed by about 8 of them and
dragged out by my clothes and my collar. They threw me on the ground and
searched me and cocked their guns on me. We were held in chicken cages,
about two metres by a metre and a half with criss cross wire. They were
swearing at us a lot. They didn't beat us but they accused us of having
relations with Saddam Hussein, asking who organized the demonstration,
telling us anyone who is against our American interests will be arrested.
"They offered us some food but more curses. They didn't inform our parents
at all. The headmaster came with three of the fathers. Most of us were held
between 7 and 10 hours but one student is not Iraqi and he was held for
much longer and they questioned him for two hours and made him stand
outside from 10pm till 2am in the freezing cold. The youngest was 14."
The school is named after a brother-in-law of Saddam's who was popular with
both Sunni and Shia people. For this he was killed by Saddam and, when the
statues of former regime figures were being destroyed after the invasion,
both of his monuments, in Baghdad and Basra, were protected by local
people. The pupils have painted over the sign at the school's entrance,
renaming it Saddam's School. The depiction of Saddam on TV in American
hands seems to have made him a heroic symbol even to many who disliked him.
One of the boys told me, "Only 40 kids out of all of us were on the first
demonstration but after the raid, we will all go out on Saturday after
school and demonstrate against the occupation. They have turned us all
against the American soldiers. We don't care about their tanks, we don't
care about their machine guns, we don't care about their prisons any more."
Outside the school, Rana asked me, "Did you see the bodies in Amiriya?
There were bodies in the street, Americans and Iraqis. They stopped an
ambulance, threw in 5 bodies and said go, just go. It is a war zone. They
don't want to give the bodies to the families. Even my neighbour, he was
killed by the Americans a few days ago and they didn't receive his body
yet. When they went to the hospital the doctors said you have to go to the
Americans, bring permission from them and we will give you your son's body."
Wasef, one of the Iraq Indymedia members, was shot in the foot while
filming the demonstration in Amiriya yesterday. He's OK, still smiling,
doesn't know who fired the bullet that hit him.
In the Abu Ghraib hospital while I was visiting someone, there was a noise,
something more than a groan but weaker than a shout, broken by short
in-breaths, aah, aah, aah: a man with a gunshot wound, a crowd of men
trying to lift him from the trolley to the bed. Outside was exploding at
frequent intervals. In the doorway they were loading a coffin onto a pick
up. A woman with a full pregnant belly told us her two children were
playing in the garden when a rocket landed in the flower bed. Another one
landed in the street outside.
The petrol queues are now about 2-3km long, two cars wide in places.
Billboards and leaflets declare the new penalty of 3 to 10 years in jail --
yes, it does say years -- for buying or selling black market petrol. They,
like the posters advertising rewards for information, are plastered with
paint, red or black.
I have to apologise to Hamsa and Khalid -- I misunderstood. Hamsa said,
"Now you are in handcuffs, the bastards," not "you bastard" about Saddam --
a small but significant linguistic cock-up on my part, and Khalid said they
will make him crawl over nails not that they should. I'm sorry.

German Stand with Efforts to Fund the Iraqi Resistance!!!
I want to inform you ,that the regional leadership of bavaria´s
Socialist German Worker´s Youth (SDAJ), Youth organisation of German
Comunist Party (DKP) decided with 100% to support the 10.- Euro Campaign
of AIC (Anti-Imperialist Camp in Italy). In our last local meeting we also decided to publish an article about Iraqi resistance I have to write on our local group´s homepage. We will also try to bring one of our best antiimperialist comerades on the national list of DKP for European Parliament´s election.
Resistance Committee in France Stand with the People of Iraq Against Occupation!
The IRAQ COMMITTEES in France, in the Tradition of Comrade Che Guevara, stands with the Armed Resistance of the Iraqi People, and the Baath Party Leadership.
"With Che Guevara, we affirm that "imperialism has a head, the United States", and that it should be cut off ! The USA is the enemy of mankind. The re-establishment of world Peace, of the fraternity of the peoples and civilizations implies the destruction of the Yankee imperialism and its accomplices : America Delenda Est !
The Iraq Committees are open to all those who want to support actively the Iraqi Resistance against the yankee occupation and to take part in the constitution of a radical anti-American force, wherever they come from, and united in a strategy of unitary Front." their homepage asserts!
In Defense of the Intifada: Discussion in the Real Objectives of the International Solidarity Movement
By Salih Manasra-Mahameed
Published in Kaanan Online Issue 84 May 31, 2002
I do not really recall the details of how the French fought or resisted the Nazi occupation of their country but it’s important to remember that armed resistance was the form by which France was liberated. Indeed, there are so many forms of resistance. However, each is driven by different principles and aims at achieving different goals. The intention of this article is not to discuss or assess the various forms of resistance. Rather, to argue the motives behind one form of resistance on which Palestinians are, intensively, being lectured, “Non-Violent Resistance” (NVR), mainly by the newly formed International Solidarity Movement (ISM). The philosophy of resistance outlines a simple rule that People need not to adore “good” ideas. Rather, adopting “practical” ideas. Before arguing the merits and practicalities of the NVR introduced and promoted by the ISM, one should look at those behind such movement, what such movement stands for. What the ISM can do and is not doing, and why NVR now so we can understand the motives and aspirations of such movement and what it seeks to achieve. What is the ISM and what it stands for? A group of political activists. Some are members of European parliaments. Some are what is called “peace activists” such as those of the Clinton-founded “peace” project, “seeds of peace” and many others students and human rights activists. One important thing that is common to all those activists is that they emerge from the post-colonialism school of thought. Hence, the Zionist state-Israel is no longer a colonial-settler state; Zionists are not colonial-settlers who exist on a land whose inhabitants are forced to take refuge out of their homeland. Rather, the Zionist State is a normal and historical state that is even well rooted in the region and just suffers social justice and that is in a conflict with its neighboring Arab countries or people. This same post-colonialism school and in the wake of a growing and intensifying globalization, is introducing a new terminology to legalize the new reality or what they call “the new world order”, and “the new Middle East” in particular. Following the Bush-declared “war on terror” without defining terror, the ISM stands against what they call “violence” against civilians without defining “violence” nor civilians”. This aims at destroying the image of the Palestinian freedom fighters and to rule out the Palestinian legitimate right for armed resistance. Most disturbing is that everything is being done in the name of “benefiting the Palestinian cause”. In our several correspondences with different leading ISM activists, it was made clear to us that they stand against what they call “suicide bombing” since it “targets civilians”. Basically what such notion means is that they recognize such form of resistance as “act of terror. Matter of fact what they are truly against is the right of Palestinians for armed resistance against occupation. Even when the operation of martyrdom targets military camp, military checkpoint or a bus commuting soldiers, they still call it “suicide bombing”, hence “act of terror”. I won’t be surprised if at some point a Palestinian freedom fighter would be able to shot down an Apatchi helicopter or F-16 fighter, they would still call it a “suicide bombing” or “act of terror”. This by itself can serve as a proof that there is no difference between a colonial-settler sitting in a military camp, military checkpoint, commuting bus or even sitting in a restaurant. In this context we would like to try to look for the “innocent” “Israelis” by briefly illustrate some basic characteristics of the Zionist “society”. The Zionist state is by design and nature a colonial-settler state. It stands or falls on the issue of using force. No wonder that military education is a cornerstone of the Zionist educational system. If just the ISM members pay visits to the Zionist schools at all levels they would understand what Zionism is and what its foundation stands for. I’m sure they won’t even consider doing that since this is something that goes beyond the scope of the ISM goals. In our continuous efforts to look for “Israeli innocents” we find that from the age of 14 to 18 the Zionist youth receive an active military training, in preparation for the active military duty to fight the Arab enemies. Starting from the “GEDNAA” at age of 14, summer military camps on every consecutive year for the pre-active duty military training, age 17-18. From age 18 to 21, Zionists are engaged in active military duty. From age 21-45, they are in active reserves where they physically serve in military duty for 40 days every year. From age of 45 and above, they are called for duty upon need. In this context we would like to suggest the following scenario or scenes seeking the reader’s judgment on this matter. 1- A group of “Israeli” soldiers in active duty on weekend vacation sit in a restaurant for a dinner. Few minutes after, the restaurant is blown up. Are those soldiers on weekend vacation civilians?
2- A group of “Israeli” reservists sit in a restaurant. The cellular phone rings and they are called for duty. On their way out, the restaurant is blown up. Are those army reservists civilians? So it is, now, clear that by rallying for NVR, the ISM is basically rallying to convince the Palestinians to give up the armed resistance which raises the questions why and why now? Why ISM-NVR and Why NOW? The ISM people argue that there was no need to rally for NVR during the first Intifada since the first Intifada was “Non-Violent” by nature. Ironically, throwing stones can hurt and can hurt bad but it’s good to know that throwing stones at occupation army is not yet considered “act of violence”. This proves that for ISM “violence” means the operations of martyrdom (OM) or what they call “suicide bombing”. By calling against “violence” they are basically calling to cease all operations of martyrdom whether they are carried out against classic or non-classic military targets. In short, they wish Palestinians would give up armed resistance. Additionally, their above claim is ridiculous and non-sense since Palestinian freedom fighters always carried out operations of martyrdom against the Zionist invaders before and during the first Intifada. Matter of fact the OM go back even to the period of the British mandate of Palestine. This leads us to conclude that the real motive behind the NVR has nothing to do with good or bad, efficient or less efficient forms of resistance. Rather, and in short, a message to all oppressed people from the master globalizers, that in the new world order people of the periphery should have no right to carry any military or armed actions against the neo-colonials. This by itself explains why the lead activists of the ISM are those of either government officials of the pro-globalization countries or government-founded action groups of the US-lead globalization camp. The true reason for why no one has rallied for NVR during the first Intifada is simply because the first Intifada stunned the whole world and no one could have predicted what such people’s resistance is capable of doing. It took the Zionist colonials and their supporters a long time to conclude that there is no military solution for the Intifada. Then, the Zionists and their supporters in the US instigated the gulf war to destroy the financial and military power of the Arabs with the intention to force them to negotiate a political solution where the Zionists can impose their demands. The infamous Oslo “peace” accord had succeeded then to curb the Intifada and resume the process of accumulation of capital as well as sustaining all endeavors of western neo-colonialism. It’s important to note that Peres, the designer of the Zionist nuclear bomb and the butcher of Qana massacre, had said “had not the nuclear reactor in Demona, Arafat would have never agreed to come to the negotiating table”. Hence, imposing “peace” agreements on the Arabs by force. So what is different this time? In response to the barbaric and harsh Zionist oppressive policies towards the Palestinian people, another Intifada has erupted inducing another powerful wave of people’s resistance. This Intifada (September 2000) comes after the great victory of the Lebanese
resistance, which induces a stronger determination to combat and defeat the Zionist colonials. On the other fronts, this Intifada takes all Arab masses to the streets confronting the Arab client regimes and combating the Zionist presence, hegemony, and control over their countries and, by so doing, reviving the Arabic dimension of the Arab-Zionist conflict. This second Intifada takes the Palestinian freedom fighters to a new level of the strategic combat against the Zionist colonials making the later lose security and safety. Again the Zionist colonials fail to come up with military solution for the Intifada but this time there is no room for the Zionist colonials and their supporters to instigate another regional war and curb the Arab people’s resistance. Most importantly, the second Intifada destabilized the Arab-Zionist power balance, which was thus far of Zionist superiority of nuclear weapons vs. Arab superiority of non-nuclear weapons. This time the Israeli nuclear reactor of Demona can be isolated in the Arab-Zionist conflict. It is known that any nuclear reactor can serve up to 30 years and if well maintained, which is not the case of Demona’s nuclear reactor, can serve up to more five years. Unlike what Zeiv Sheif thinks, nuclear reactor is not like a vehicle that can be repaired anytime. At the end of its service life, nuclear reactor can no longer function according to engineering standards and to get it back to normal production, its entire infrastructure needs to be rebuilt. Now, the Zionists can no longer ignore the deteriorating functionality of Demona’s nuclear reactor. It has been reported that leaking and nuclear radiation are already polluting the area’s water, land and air. The Zionist green peace group has also confirmed this. This means that the Demona’s nuclear reactor needs to be shut down immediately. However, and since the other nuclear reactors in the Zionist entity have no nuclear weapon production capabilities, no Zionist leader would dare to shut the Demona’s nuclear reactor down before securing a “peace” treaty with the neighboring Arab states. That’s why the Zionist entity is using force with full capacity to force the Arabs to the negotiating table and sign “peace” treaty. Those are exactly the issues that we need to challenge the ISM and other “peace-action” groups with. What should the ISM do and is not doing? The ISM has full capacity to challenge the international community with important issues such as the nuclear arms of the Zionist entity. The political representatives of the various European parliaments affiliated with ISM can easily challenge the international community’s silence towards the Zionist entity’s violations to the many international standards and charters concerning nuclear arms. The US members of the ISM can also play a key role in cutting all aids to the Zionist entity as the US law prohibits granting any aid to any entity involved in nuclear arms and in production of nuclear weapons, and the use of such US weapons in the killing of innocent civilians. ISM can play a major role in both, Europe and the US to create a new public consciousness that is in favor of cutting all ties, relations and aid to the Zionist entity. It can rally for pushing their governments in Europe and the US towards forcing the Zionist state to implement all UN resolutions regarding the Zionist withdrawal from all occupied
Arab lands and the fulfillment of the Palestinian right to return to their homeland. This is a must do things since all those countries have agreed and signed such resolutions and they should be held responsible for implementing them. Honestly, I cannot think of any reason why the ISM is not doing: it is either that the ISM considers such activism and resistance acts of violence, or such acts really go beyond the goals of ISM. Indeed, the ISM is probably doing some good work in the land occupied in 1967 such as preventing the Zionist army from carrying a larger scale of atrocities against the Palestinians. They form a human shield, tie themselves to trees, houses and maybe physically protect Palestinians and confront with the Zionist army but I would leave it to the reader to decide whether or not such resistive strategies are practical for the Palestinians to adopt. Additionally, one must be guarded and aware of the media exaggeration of these activ
