Terror Heaps Suffering on People Who Already Suffered Enough...
19 June 2014
The regional ferment has been stocked by Syrian civil war as it spills across the border and
ignites Sunnis and Shiites sects in neighbouring states to also attack one another. Said Jabbar
Hasan, of Iraqi Association in Hammersmith. The misery continues, as innocent and
vulnerable people are paying a heavy cost. Thousands have fled and sought safety in the
Many fears that Syria’s deadly civil war is reverberating in the wider region, as the sectarian
proxy war flare up. Iraqis are sentimental and often their emotions lead them to follow those
who pretend to be religious, said Jabbar hasan.
Our community is deeply worried and concern that again the cycle of hate and sectarian
murder will engulf Baghdad. This terrible and ghastly terror is fuelled further when a group of
extremists started to control the city of Mosul.
On a good day, the drive from Mosul to Erbil takes less than two hours. Last Sunday morning,
with his city under the control of extremists and psychopaths, its morgue filled with bodies and
people running low on food, water and fuel, Jamil packed his family of six into his car and set
off for the capital of the Kurdish region, Erbil to seek safety. The trip, with its wave of people on
the move and constant checkpoints, took more than 12 hours, he said.
Iraq is poised at the crossroads between two starkly different visions, the foreign psychopaths
and former regime’s hardliner Baathists. There is a real risk of further deadly sectarian
atrocities on a massive scale.
We appeal to all Iraqi political and religious leaders to avoid incitement, and that there should
be genuine reconciliation to form a national unity government. The unity government can only
be formed by all Iraqi leaders deciding whether they love their children more than they hate
each other. That is the most important question they must answer, it can't be avoided any
