Solidarity with Iraqi people is a humane duty to avoid terrorism crimes and sectarian conflict
To supporters of freedom and human rights
To the United Nations, World Governments and Humanitarian Organizations
Iraqi people have suffered for more than three years amid bitter life, accidental killings committed by terrorist groups, organized gangs, and remnants of the defeated dictatorial regime, in addition to the horrible conditions of health, municipality, security, educational services, and the collapse of post, transport, water and electricity nets, amid the worsening of administrative duties and the huge spread of corruption. What is making things worse and more dangerous is the political nature of the sectarian conflict, the spread of killings based on identity, and the imposing migration on hundreds of thousands of families, just on the
basis of sectarian and religious backgrounds, something that has never been a problem to the Iraqi people who have been living in harmony with various nationalities, religions and sects.
There is no doubt that if this situation continues or worsens it will lead not only to the destruction of Iraq’s national harmony but also to the disintegration of Iraq’s national unity, and may push Iraq into an unprecedented catastrophe that would threaten neighbouring countries and the whole region with security chaos and instability. It would also threaten the whole world by the spreading of violence far worse than what is happening now.
We believe that such a scenario is becoming much clearer to all who are following the situation in Iraq now as well as to all governments and various sections of the public.
We, members of the Iraqi community, are looking forward to a quicker build up of Iraqi military and security forces so there would not be a necessity for the existence of foreign troops in our country. Thus we appeal to you to double your efforts of solidarity with our people, to continue the fight against terrorism and sectarianism, and to support political forces, organizations and social sections who are facing terrorist crimes and disintegration, in holding firmly the unity of the people and their right to choose their future.
Along the road, the road of mobilizing solidarity with our people, we, groups of political, cultural and social organizations, in addition to academics and political personalities in the U.K have decided to hold a solidarity week with our people, in coordination with a solidarity campaign in a number of European countries and the U.S.A. We hope that you will support us.
