The deputy of the al-Hikma stream, Asaad al-Murshidi, confirmed on Thursday that the American forces will not leave Iraq so easily, pointing to the visit of Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kazemi, who will discuss this file with the American administration.

Al-Murshidi said in an interview with him (Baghdad today) that "the American forces will not leave Iraq this year, and the Prime Minister's visit to Washington will discuss several strategic agreements on the American presence in the country."

He added, "There is an Iraqi political wing that refuses publicly and privately the departure of these forces in order to control the regional balance in Iraq," noting that "Washington is looking at the size of the sacrifices in lives and money that you have made in Iraq in order to bring down the former regime, so the matter of its exit will not be done with this Ease. " 

And Al-Murshidi said that "these sacrifices were certainly not a gift to the Iraqis, but rather there are strategic interests and vital goals for Washington that they must achieve." 

The representative of the National Sind Bloc, Abdul Amir al-Mayahi, had said on Monday (July 6, 2020) that the current US military presence in Iraq is illegal and threatens the stability of the country, while he indicated that the American embassy has turned into a military base. 

Al-Mayahi said, during his hosting of the program  ( Shortest Roads )  presented by Dr. Nabil Jassem on Al-Sharqiya News Channel, "There are parties working on the military escalation by targeting the American embassy to cause instability in the political situation in the country." 

He added, "The embassy has turned from an embassy to a military base, and includes an airport and an anti-missile system, and if the missiles fired at it were from the factions, as some parties claim, they would have hit their target with extreme accuracy." 

He continued, "The American side can determine the party that is bombing the Green Zone and targeting the embassy with its capabilities if there were sincere intentions." Noting that "the third party involved put Iraq in a whirlpool and works for special interests and the current US military presence in Iraq is illegal and threatens the stability of Iraq." ". 

Al-Mayyhi indicated that his “bloc” supports Al-Kazemi in the efforts to achieve political and economic stability and in the face of the Corona virus, but the process of entering the popular crowd in the process of the session was an unacceptable process. Target it and must benefit from it instead of facing it. "

Baghdad today - Baghdad 


Manar Abdel-Muttalib, a member of the Iraqi parliament, on Thursday, July 23, 2020, proposed a solution to end the delay of the ration card program after the failure to deliver food to citizens.

Abdul-Muttalib said in an interview with (Baghdad Today), that "the amounts allocated to finance the ration card must be transferred to the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs for distribution to poor families or the adoption of a mechanism for distributing money instead of foodstuffs and left the citizen to choose to purchase the materials themselves."

In a statement received (Baghdad Today), Al-Halfi said, "At a time when the country suffers from the repercussions of the Corona pandemic, and its negative effects on various health, economic, and other levels, we see a clear delay by some ministries in alleviating the suffering of the citizens." ".

He added: "Since we were hoping that the efforts of the Ministry of Commerce would be doubled in order to reduce the burdens of the economic recession that struck large segments of society, we note that there is a delay in distributing the ration card items, which is a disregard for citizens."

Al-Halfi called on the Ministry of Commerce to adhere to the timing of the distribution of ration card items in all regions of the country's provinces, to increase the number of items in line with the needs of the people, and to pay attention to their quality and suitability for human consumption.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that his country would deal a blow to America in response to the killing of the prominent commander of the Revolutionary Guards, Qassem Soleimani, adding that his country would not interfere in Baghdad's relationship with Washington.

Khamenei made his threat in Tuesday's meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kazemi, according to the official website of the Iranian guide.

Khamenei told the Iraqi Prime Minister - who is visiting Tehran - that his country will not interfere in Baghdad's relationship with Washington, but he warned that the American presence on the Iranian border is causing security chaos.

Al-Kazemi met Khamenei in Tehran on Tuesday during his first official visit abroad since he took office in May.

Khamenei said that "Iran will not interfere in Iraq’s relations with America, but expects Iraqi friends to know America and realize that its presence in any country causes corruption, destruction and destruction."

He continued, "The Islamic Republic expects to abide by the decision of the (Iraqi) parliament to expel American forces, as their presence is a reason for insecurity."


America and Iran

Khamenei indicated that Soleimani was killed in an American air strike by a plane near Baghdad airport at the beginning of the year, after which the Iraqi parliament requested the withdrawal of American forces. "They killed your guest in your house and rudely admitted that," he said.

He added that Iran "will never forget this and will certainly strike a retaliatory blow to the Americans."

Tehran responded to the killing of Soleimani by launching ballistic missiles at bases used by American forces in Iraq, knowing that Trump refused to respond militarily to this strike.

The missile attack targeting the al-Asad base in western Iraq did not result in deaths among US forces, but it wounded soldiers with brain tremors.

Khamenei said that Iran opposes "what weakens the Iraqi government," contrary to Washington, which he said does not want "an independent and strong Iraqi government elected by popular vote."

Parliamentary recognition of a "media agenda" that offends Al-Kazemi..and deputies: People trust him to rise from the ruins left by the past


7/24/2020 7:02:49 AM  
Baghdad / Obelisk: Member of the House of Representatives Nasser Turki warned of the existence of a "media agenda", Friday, aimed at insulting Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi and showing him as a "weak appearance".

"Al-Kazemi has very good and remarkable steps, and people are waiting for him a lot for their confidence in him despite their suffering," Turki said in a statement to the obelisk, urging Al-Kazemi to "take steady steps in his national approach."

What is the agenda against the Prime Minister?

Political literature relentlessly pumping it, overflowing media channels, striking at the nail a fabricated, fabricated idea that cultivates it in the Iraqi mindfulness, stating that Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi, "America's Man in Iraq".

In a parallel trend to this discourse, but more smoothly, Al-Kazemi’s description is circulated as “Shi’ite, secular, non-Islamic, rising to power despite religious parties.” It is an amusing description, apparently intended to flirt with spectra that yearn for power, and in the subconscious of the rhythm. Between the Prime Minister, the "religious" Shiite political elite and grassroots in particular, and Iraqi society in general.

One of the imagined propositions that have nothing to do with reality is the marketing of concerns that are not based on sound analytical logic, that Al-Kazemi’s era is the “end of the Iranian era in Iraq” and the beginning of an “American phase” led by a Shi’ite politician “dependent” to Washington.

The agenda focuses on myths made in laboratories of the disorder, seeking to confuse the image that depicts Al-Kazimi's character in "moderation" and "balance".

The specifications and skills that Al-Kazemi possesses put him in another classification, in the non-square on which former Iraqi politicians and followers of the 2003 era stand, with an understanding of the circumstances of each one's manifestation, and an awareness of the reasons for success and failures that marked their times, because Mustafa Al-Kazemi, did not derive the elements of his strength Legislations and Centers

Influence, and money, is the attainment of post-2003 mathematics that can consolidate its political presence, and has not been forgiven through a political club whose members run each other.

The bottom line is that Al-Kazemi, without political shadows, as an analysis claimed, while saying that he is the man of the stage, applies to reality completely, after the political forces hired it himself, and it was not imposed on it from a regional or international side.

Regarding the formative nature of Al-Kazemi, this necessitates a comparison between him and the symbols of influence since 2003, as repercussions and polarizations forced them to walk in front and under the shadows of external forces, if not guardianship. Without mentioning a name, turning the pages of history reveals that.
In addition to all of this, the figures who led the political scene were never a leadership formation that exercised power and changed it until it was said that Al-Kazemi was an emergency on the political process. Despite its various names, the practical experience in power, even if it is put to the test, the results are available, and the Iraqis know their failure.

Iraqis are not looking for the big names that brightened the money of the state, parties, and affiliations, but rather a real leadership that does not rush to classify the people as a big name, because if it achieved the Iraqis, the goals, and rid them of the dilemma of failure, it will be the most worthy of all the titles, the previous And suffix.
Rather, say that Al-Kazemi saved the political elites from their dilemma in severing the rift with the public, which is only denied by a fool, or a blind person.

However, Al-Kazemi realizes that he will not be a bridge to the current political system with the people, if the political blocs and forces did not dissociate themselves from their approach, which ended in a failed government in every sense of the word.

In fairness, Al-Kazemi was not far from the current political class. Rather, he lived through the throes of her failed experiences, but he was a spectator, an observer, not a participant.

Mustafa Al-Kazemi interacted with Ahmed Chalabi project, and he shared with him the details of the salvation project from the previous regime, and he could find him a long shadow in it, but he withdrew after finding that the circumstances forced the project owner after 2003, to be a skilled hunter in the game of sharing the spoils of hunting.

Under the weight of pain, Al-Kazemi withdrew from the failure of the post-2003 ruling experience to the cultural and media project in documenting Iraq’s memory, and reconstituting it through the archive project, as well as independent cultural projects, making a serious effort to continue it, but lack of funding prevented this, and he could get Hence, if he had chosen to stand under the shadow of local and external funders.
Al-Kazimi's ascending with this lightning speed is a need, patriotic and elitist, if we do not want to highlight the role of the street looking for change.
The parties that fought politics and their corridors were not unaware of this rise, and they were the ones who created shadows for Al-Kazemi, in contrast to what he was promoting that he was looking for, after realizing the danger to their political presence that was indicated by the October 2019 uprising.
In this way, Al-Kazemi is the owner of the credit over the parties, not the other way around, and for this he refuses to be a "formative improvement" for them.

Moreover, it is the regional and global winds that have cast shadows into Al-Kazemi, because the conflicting countries realize the great predicament that they are in, if a conflict erupts that does not remain nor be excused, in addition to the fact that those powers, whether eastern or western, realized with full awareness of the burning of their symbols And its tools, all of them, and there is no escape from a stage man, self-made, who was never a shadow of anyone, started his career in the word, and used his skills in management, leadership and conflict resolution, in favor of a positive balance, and strengthened his career headed by the intelligence service and with remarkable success.
Al-Kazemi, it is preferable to stand in the sun, clearly, without shadows, east or west, as the intellectual superstition comes to mind, and those who add to the light do not search for the levels of shadows in order to remain on the top, which many of the politicized politicians did.

The whole issue, and the staple of the Persians in it, is that Al-Kazemi manages today what is not managed, due to the money crisis, disease, corruption, and ruins left by the past.
Note: The article reads an analysis published by Iraqi agencies, under the title "Al-Kazemi .. Addicted high shadows and there is no escape from a new shadow", according to which Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi is looking for political shadows from countries and parties in order to rise to positions through them.

There were 18 ballot papers and today there are words about 80 constituencies, which is 80 ballot papers, and there is a proposal that says 250 constituencies, or 250 ballot papers, so a financial budget cannot be determined from Without specifying the shape of the circles.

      Barzani party member accuses Baghdad of breaking with previous agreements with Erbil: We need a comprehensive agreement

      Policy 07/20/2020 15:47 407     

      Baghdad today - Kurdistan
      Member of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Imad Bajlan, confirmed today, Tuesday, that the lack of implementation of the constitution by the federal government is the basis of the dispute between Baghdad and Erbil.
      Baglan told (Baghdad Today), "In every meeting between the Kurdistan Regional Government and the federal government in Baghdad, the region demands the application of the constitution and asylum to the Federal Court in contentious issues, but different governments in Baghdad apply it selectively." 
      He added that "any agreement between the two governments will be temporary, because all previous agreements are not implemented and Baghdad will soon be disavowed due to the failure to apply the articles of the constitution." 
      And he stated, "We need a comprehensive legal agreement that guarantees the rights of citizens in the region, as well as the rights of Baghdad, and this matter will not be applied through visits or relations between two governments because it will soon end as it happened with the previous agreement in the government of Abdul-Mahdi, for that constitution is Al-Faisal." 
      Before that, Baglan confirmed that the Kurdistan region is owed 27 billion dollars because of Baghdad's failure to pay the region's dues. 
      Baglan said that "the Kurdistan region was delivering 250 thousand barrels according to the 2019 budget while receiving half of the agreed amount and not more than 450 million," stressing that "the Kurdistan government does not take a share of the petrodollars like the Iraqi provinces." 
      He added: "In the days of the war against ISIS, the government borrowed 65 billion dollars and did not give it a dollar to the Kurdistan Region in the face of terrorism and now deducts part of the payment from the region."
      He stressed that "the Kurdistan region owes $ 27 billion, which is because Baghdad stopped paying the region's dues at a time when it was fighting terrorism and saving the salaries of its employees forced." 
      A delegation from the Kurdistan Regional Government is preparing to visit the capital, Baghdad, as a prelude to completing negotiations on an agreement to deliver oil and revenue from border crossings in exchange for the federal government sending financial dues to the region's employees.

      Al-Kazemi responds to Iran's provocations with the Battle of the Land Ports

      - 4 Hours Ago  

      BAGHDAD - Baghdad responded strongly Saturday to indications indicating Tehran's intention to stimulate hostile security activities inside Iraq, when the Armed Forces Command in Basra, in the south, announced direct drilling of a trench in the vicinity of a border port to cut off drug and arms smuggling from Iran.
      Pictures showed mechanisms operating under the guard of Iraqi army soldiers to cut off irregular dirt roads used by smugglers linked to armed militias, to introduce drugs and weapons from Iran to Iraq and transfer the US dollar from Iraq to Iran.
      And the sale of Iranian drugs in Iraq generates big profits, after this country turned from a mere passage of this substance to other countries, to a consumer.
      Iran depends on selling drugs in the southern Iraqi cities, exchanging the return for the American currency, then returning it from the borders.
      Iran also provides weapons to its militias and sells to all clans and those willing to possess all the weapons and ammunition they need.
      Most of this material is introduced through dirt roads near the Shalamcheh border crossing between Iraq and Iran in Basra Governorate.
      Military sources said that the Iraqi army forces received direct instructions from Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi to stop smuggling operations between Iran and Iraq urgently, confirming that the Basra Operations Command has started since Saturday morning the establishment of a trench protected by an earthen shield that runs along the flat area near the Shalamcheh port, where it was built Militias are dirt roads.
      This development comes after the Iraqi authorities announced hostile security activities - believed to be carried out by pro-Iranian groups in Baghdad and southern cities - targeting American interests.
      It also came a few days after Al-Kazemi ended a visit to Tehran, which was surrounded by widespread controversy, and leaked from her that the Iraqi Prime Minister rejected an Iranian request to facilitate Tehran's acquisition of the US dollar.
      The Iraqi and Iranian governments are reluctant to disclose the nature of the relationship between the two countries now, and whether they are really tense, against the background of the failure of Al-Kazimi's visit to Tehran.
      Al-Kazemi’s directives did not stop at the level of stopping the smuggling of drugs and weapons from Iran to Iraq through the Shalamcheh outlet. Rather, it extended to include 13 other outlets, the most prominent of which is with Iran, including one with Saudi Arabia that was not opened mainly.
      The Joint Operations Command, which is the highest military formation in Iraq, said that Al-Kazemi issued directives to “seize all border crossings, enforce the law in them, combat abuses and corruption and waste public money,” announcing its initiation of “allocating security forces to all outlets and the size of the assigned security force according to the nature of each Outlet, where protection responsibility has been defined for all outlets on the Iraqi army’s parts. ”
      The leadership indicated that the forces empowered to protect the port and the customs sanctuary are “empowered with all legal powers to hold accountable any violation and from whomever it was.”
      Sources say that this type of measure directly affects militia activity linked to Iran within Iraqi territory.
      The government's actions reveal a clear plan to tighten control of the road linking Iran and Syria, via Iraq.
      And if Iran uses its ports with Iraq in Basra and Diyala to introduce weapons, then it uses Anbar outlets to transfer weapons from Syria to Iraq.
      These measures may provide a picture to answer the question that arises in multiple circles regarding the nature of the relationship between the Kazemi government and Iran.
      But Al-Kazemi, according to observers, does not want to enter into an all-out war with Iran's arms in Iraq, which is besieged by the stifling economic and health crises.
      Therefore, Al-Kazemi moves slowly and chooses files that do not raise media hustle, with the aim of strengthening the state’s influence versus that of the militias.
      Observers say that without the support of the international community, Al-Kazemi may find himself powerless to cope with the tremendous momentum that Iran can manufacture in Iraq, through forces that view the country and its organs lightly.
