As an Iraqi whose family comes from Kufa, and on behalf of all Iraqis who not only stand with Syria in word but also in deed and blood, I would like to sincerely and deeply apologize to all my Syrian brothers and sisters for the absolutely despicable new statement of Muqtada al-Sadr. What actually came out of his mouth is shocking… Simply shocking: “I think it would be fair for President Bashar al-Assad to offer his resignation and step down in love for Syria, to spare it the woes of war and terrorism and take a historic, heroic decision before it’s too late.” Not only is this asinine and traitorous, it is also patently false.
And considering his Peace Brigades (Saraya al-Salaam) have been absent from just about every single major battle against the Takfiri terrorist scourge in Iraq (and have been in nowheresville on Syria), he really should just keep his sideways-mouth closed and his two-faced comments to himself. Continuing on his current path not only brings dishonor to the Iraqi moujahideen who are standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the Syrian Arab Army in the fight against ISIS and in preparation for liberating the Golan Heights, but also his martyred father Ayatollah Muhammad Muhammad Sadiq al-Sadr (R.A.), martyred uncle Ayatollah Muhammad Baqir al-Sadr (R.A.) and his disappeared cousin Sayyed Moussa al-Sadr (may he be returned to us soon), all of whom stood with the Moustazafeen (oppressed ones) and firmly against all Zio-Imperialist aggressions no matter what.
Al-Sadr does not speak for Iraq, nor Iraqi public opinion, nor represent them.
