http://www.freearabvoice.org/Iraq/Report/report16.htm Iraqi Resistance Report XVI - June 13, 2003 =========================================== Al-Quds al-Arabi, London, Thursday 12 June 2003. Nasserist Organization announces formation of an armed wing to join the Iraqi resistance struggle, endorses deadline for foreigners working with the occupation to leave Iraq or to become targets. Baghdad: Quds Press A Nasserist political organization in Iraq has declared that it has decided to form a military wing to participate in the resistance to the Anglo-American occupation of Iraq. The Command Council of the Nasserist Organization in Iraq said in a statement that, in accordance with resolutions of the extraordinary meeting of the Regional Command, and in confirmation of the need for Nasserist forces in Iraq to participate in the operations of the resistance to the hated Anglo-American occupation, a Special Military Council had been formed with the name Liberation Group which will follow the political direction of the Nasserist organization and which will constitute one of the armed popular resistance organizations acting against the invaders. The statement said that the Special Military Council had already been formed and it had in actuality taken part in operations under the General Command of the Armed Forces, the Resistance, and Liberation. It participated under the slogan Liberation is the only path to the establishment of a democratic regime in Iraq. The statement condemned the establishment of the Shiite Da'wah ("Propaganda") Party, which it described as a lackey of the occupation forces that passed on information to them about the resistance organizations. It strongly denounced its "hateful course aimed at keeping the American and British forces in Iraq for as long as possible, just as is being done by the gangs of al-Barzani, at-Talibani, al-Hakim, and al-Chelebi," to use the words of the Nasserist statement. The statement also condemned the statements made by Muhammad Baqir al-Hakim, President of the Supreme Council of the Islamic Revolution, concerning the activity of the resistance, in which he described the resistance as "suspicious." The Nasserist statement said that, "suspect No. 1 is al-Hakim himself and those non Iraqis who came with him." It added that "al-Hakim's remarks are actually an attempt by al-Hakim and those sectarian traitors like him to present the Shiites as having concluded a truce with the occupation, whereas the resistance in fact embraces many Shiites who regard jihad for the sake of God and Iraq and liberation to be of greater importance than the ambitions of the traitors." The Command Council of the Nasserist Organization declared that it agrees with the declaration of the General Command of the Armed Forces, the Resistance, and Liberation that gave a grace period until 17 June 2003 for all the civilians whose nationalities are those of the aggressor countries, as well as all nationalities cooperating with those forces whether they work in the civilian sector or among the armed forces as well as Qataris, Kuwaitis, Saudis, Iranians, and Turks, to leave Iraq. After that date they will be regarded as targets by the resistance movement. ---------------------------------------------- __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? SBC Yahoo!
