Last week an Iraqi court ruled that sufficient evidence of likely fraud in Iraq’s March 7 election exists to warrant a recount of the votes in Baghdad. In yesterday’s American Spectator I published this piece on alleged fraud likely perpetrated by Iran and Saudi Arabia in the election. Iraqi Parliamentarian Mithal al-Alusi, a fearless champion of human rights and of normalized relations between Israel and Iraq, believes the elections were indeed corrupted by radical regimes in the mideast that are using Iraq as their battleground.
Considering that both Saudi Arabia and Iran have participated heavily in the violence in Iraq for years, with many of the suicide bombers in Iraq coming from Saudi Arabia and the terrorist militias being funded by Iran, it is not difficult to believe that these countries are trying to install their own Islamist candidates and stacking the deck against true reformers.
Alusi, whose two sons were murdered by terrorists and who has said he refuses to hand over his country, Iraq, to murderers and terrorists, is calling on the United States to oversee this Baghdad recount. With our brave troops sacrificing so much for freedom and democracy, surely it is unacceptable to close our eyes and allow this election to be hijacked by Tehran and Riyadh.
