:: American military sources reported that the confessions of some members from three different terrorist groups have led to the arrest of (Muthana Harith Al-Dari) the information manager in the (Association of Muslim scholars).
An Iraqi spokesman stated that three terrorist groups that were active in the cities of Kirkuk, Diyala and Fallujah were recognized and the arrest of some members of these groups revealed links between these groups and Al-Dari.
Spokesman of the association, Mohammed Bashar Al-Faidi said that the American unit that arrested Al-Dari used a device to track any traces of TNT that could exist on Al-Dari’s hands and he added that the American unit told Al-Dari’s escorts (who were left to go) that the results were positive.
Al-Faidi said “this is a lie, they are trying to fool us with this ridiculous procedure”.
He also described the arrest as “an attempt from the Americans to punish the association”.
*From today’s Al-Sabah.
At last! We’ve waited long for some action like this as we’re certain that there are some links among this association, the Ba’athists and the terrorists. Whenever the thugs take a hostage, this association mediates the negotiations between the kidnappers and the concerned foreign embassy or firm which clearly means that there’s some direct communication between the kidnappers and the association.
This association had always sympathized with the “courageous patriotic resistance men” and prized “their determination in their struggle to liberate Iraq from the occupiers”.
The members of this association were the strongest supporters of the terrorists in Fallujah and they launched a “humanitarian” campaign to deliver food supplies, medical supplies and......guns and ammunition to the besieged thugs.
For your knowledge, this associations consists mainly of clerics who were trained (paid) by Saddam’s ministry of religious affairs to preach in the important mosques and at that time every single cleric had to sign a document that proves his willingness to cooperate with the security systems and report of any “suspicious” activity or group to the authorities.
These clerics are hired preachers ready to defend and glorify anyone if he pays well.
Something that is very uncomfortable about this association is that it’s the only known Iraqi group that never, ever condemned Saddam’s regime and never mentioned a word about how we suffered all those years.
They worked for Saddam and they’re still working with his allies.
Probably I can use this as an evidence too!
