Ex President EU Parliament Stevenson: “Iranian regime has taken measures to strengthen Isis”

The former President of EU Parliament Struan Stevenson – actual head of the European Iraqi Freedom Association (EIFA) – attacked strongly Iranian policy in Iraq. He said: “Recently, the Iranian regime working through its subordinates led by former prime minister Nouri Al-Maliki in Iraq, has taken new measures to strengthen ISIS and contribute to the mayhem in Iraq. In a surprising move, Hadi al-Amery the head of the terrorist Badr organization, replaced the Sunni governor of the Diyala province with one of the Badr organization officers named Mothanna al-Tammimi, known as an accomplice in the massacre of the Sunnis by the Shiia militias… it was followed by a pre-planned plot that led to the removal of Asyl al-Nujaifi, the governor of the Nainawa Sunni province, by members of parliament linked to al-Maliki’s faction. Observers believe that the reason for Asyl al-Nujaifi’s dismissal was his firm opposition to the arrival of Shiia militias in Nainawa province and his trip to the United States to lobby for arming Sunni forces to assist in the liberation of Mosul. Meanwhile the unbridled wave of terror unleashed by militias linked to Iran and Maliki reached new heights through the assassination of Mr. Abdullah Khalaf al-Jabouri, deputy director of the Engineer’s Association, who was the Sunni candidate for the Ministry of Petroleum. It is clear that the Iranian regime, through Maliki and Hadi al-Amery, is conducting a campaign of terror and assassinations against individuals and national forces opposed to their policies, parallel to their military intervention in Iraq. Undoubtedly, these actions will strengthen ISIS and lead to a weakening of the elected Iraqi government… If the United States is truly concerned about eradicating ISIS they…must arm the Sunnis and stop the advance of Maliki and the Iranian regime’s armed militias towards the Sunni provinces.
