I was not able to find any information on Dr Mohammed Obeidi of the Iraq's Freedom Party. I found the communiqué of a party which I assume is the same one. I am posting it here hoping it would of interest to some.

To our steadfast Iraqi people under the oppression of a tyrannical occupation, To all our courageous patriotic forces resisting the invaders of our wounded Iraq, To all the people of the Arab nation spread throughout our Arab homeland, To those who love freedom, peace and security throughout the world, After the treacherous Anglo-American Zionist forces perpetrated their act of terrorist aggression against our beloved Iraq, showing no respect for values and international norms and/or for the opposition of most countries of the world to their criminal plans, both those declared and those undeclared, these forces have gone on to perpetrate all manner of criminal and shameful acts; for example, the killing of thousands of Iraqis using deadly armaments, even those under international ban, and the premeditated destruction of all Iraq’s infrastructure. Moreover, it has become clear to us and to all Iraqis — and of this there can be no doubt — that the invading forces, in cooperation with the Zionist and Kuwaiti intelligence services, have destroyed and burnt most of Iraq’s cultural heritage in a despicable act which aimed to erase Mesopotamian civilisation for all time. It was clear before the criminal aggression against Iraq, and it is clearer now, that these invading forces have not come to liberate Iraq as they claimed, but to occupy it, enslave its people, take control of its wealth and take from its pan-Arab role in offering unlimited support to the critical issues facing the Arab nation, at the forefront of which stands the Palestinian question, the cornerstone of the Arab people’s just struggle against the usurping Zionist entity. Their occupation of Iraq has been accompanied by murder, starvation and deprivation from the most basic fundamentals of existence, with the humanitarian suffering of the Iraqi people reaching unprecedented levels. In addition, no one now believes the pretexts and justifications put forward by the invaders in relation to Iraq’s alleged weapons of mass destruction. Under the occupation the facts have proven that Iraq both before and after the invasion was free of these alleged weapons. Our party strongly condemns the treacherous acts of aggression and unequivocally rejects all contemptible attempts by the occupying forces to give legitimacy to their occupation. The party also condemns the invading powers for their attempt to appoint agents brought in by aircraft and on the back of tanks from abroad and appoint them to positions of power and responsibility. Our party calls determinedly for the expulsion of the invaders by any means, including armed resistance. It also calls on all Iraqis not to cooperate with the oppresive forces of occupation. Moreover, we strongly condemn all the facilities provided by commercial circles in Iraq, including the region of Kurdistan, which cooperate with the invaders in order to establish a foothold for Zionism in our occupied Iraq. Our party and the other patriotic forces of our people will deal these people as traitors to our people and homeland and they will face the punishment they deserve. At the same time as our party praises all Arab and Muslim peoples in particular, and other peoples of the world who rejected the aggression against Iraq generally, for the noble stances they adopted in expressing their rejection of that aggression, we strongly condemn all regimes, in particular Arab regimes, who participated, publicly or behind the scenes, in coordinating with the enemy and provided logistical support for its invading forces. In extending the hand of assistance and giving our blessing to the courageous armed resistance which rejects the occupation, the intensity of which has risen over the last few weeks, and in recognizing the seriousness of the conditions faced by our beloved Iraq, our party calls on all patriotic forces and political figures who reject and resist the invasion to act objectively and with serious intent to unify their ranks and political agenda in a single patriotic resistance front, the main aim of which in the present circumstances shall be to resist the occupation in an effective manner. Pursuant to our diagnosis of the present situation in Iraq, and in line with the principles declared by our party on its inauguration, we call on all patriotic political forces and persons to the following: 1) Establish a unified political command, the principal aim of which, in this phase, shall be to draw up an effective strategy for armed resistance operations until Iraq is liberated from the invaders, employing all available means, by mobilizing all the capacities of our people who reject the Anglo-American Zionist aggression. 2) Issue a political program for a liberated Iraq to include the following: a) Form a temporary national political authority to work immediately to prepare a new constitution regulating the legislative and executive powers of state, which constitution shall be put to a referendum. b) Conduct free democratic elections in order to form the political system of government and elect a President of State. c) All minorities shall enjoy the freedom to participate in the administration of government to the highest level. d) Establish the democratic structure of state, in which the law forms the basis of justice and government, protecting the values of democracy, freedom and human rights under law. e) Set up an economic system that will rebuild Iraq’s infrastructure on a sound and strong basis, in such as way to support the political system and the stability of that system, guaranteeing freedom for citizens and their interests and aspirations. f) Protect the integrity of the nation, territory and sovereignty and not squander any part of its land. g) Reject tribalism, religious, sectarian and racial extremism, and separatist disputes whatever their form, origins or name. 3) Call on all patriotic and nationalist forces in the Arab nation to provide effective support in all forms for the Iraqi Resistance and Liberation Front, to enable them to reach their patriotic and national objective in expelling the invaders and liberating Iraq from the oppression of occupation. 4) Call on all political forces standing for peace and freedom in all countries of the world to join with the steadfast people of Iraq in order to end the occupation and expel the invaders. Finally, all the people of our party in every part of our occupied homeland bow with respect before the innocent martyrs lost in defense of the country and salute our Iraqi people struggling for freedom and dignity. __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!?
