Sayyed Fadlullah's communiqué regarding the statement of the chairman of the joint chief of staffs, Mike Mullen
|Sayyed Fadlullah urges the Iraqis to take a decisive stand against occupation|
The Religious Authority H.E. Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah saw that the statement of the chairman of the joint chief of staffs, Mike Mullen, in which he warned the Iraqis against grave consequences in case they do not sign the security treaty, represents a new proof that the Americans are not in the least concerned with the Iraqi sovereignty.
His Eminence called on the Iraqis of all races and sects to respond to such threats by strengthening the cohesion of their internal fronts, and insisting on the decisive stand that refuses any concession that hurts the country's sovereignty, security unity and independence.
Following is the Sayyed's statement:
The threat of the chairman of the joint chief of staff, that is accompanied by other American and non-American similar stands that try to pressurize the Iraqi people, representatives, state, parties and officials, reveals that the Americans are neither concerned with the future of Iraq nor with its sovereignty.
Such statements and stands ensure in a way that leaves no place for doubt that the occupation is trying to elongate its stay in Iraq and take hold of anything that could make it establish permanent military bases that represents a threat to Iraq's sovereignty and independence as well as a continuous threat to the states of the region.
The Sayyed added: It is essential that the American occupying forces should hear decisive stands that ensure that their project in Iraq and the region has failed, since biting on certain development that will turn things upside down is a mirage.
Besides, the opportunity that could be a beginning of a solution should start from the admission of the Americans that they were wrong in their political and military approach to Iraq, and that they have to leave as soon as possible to enable the Iraqis to feel that they have become close to establishing the stability they are seeking.
We call on the Iraqi national components, as well as those who talk about the Resistance in their slogans, to unite and confront such threats with a decisive official and popular position, so that the Iraqis will be seen as a united and coherent people who are concerned with preserving its sovereignty independence and future of the coming generation. They should stop inciting all internal sensitivities and face the Takfiri mentality in addition to facing the occupation.
