Ali AL-Lami

Written By: FA ME

in July 2009, I wrote a post about Hizbullah’s Brigades and their role in Targeting Christians in Iraq, the information I collected was based on eye witnesses who have contemporarily lived in Iraq – especially Baghdad – and have been targeted and forced to leave their areas and neighborhoods, many of those christians were kidnapped and were humiliated by this group.

today, many Christians were happily able to inform me that Ali Al-lami, an Iraqi politician responsible of up-rooting the Ba’ath party members and supporters of Saddam, had been killed in Baghdad – the happiness didn’t come because Saddam’s supporters got rid of him, NO, the happiness is because of this man’s role in targeting, funding, and logistically supplying Hizbullah’s Brigades in Iraq.

Ali Al-lami had been known for his strong connections with Iran – he is considered one of the most influential politicians when it comes to put plans and compromises between Iraqi Politicians from one hand, and Iranian regime from the other hand. However, Ali Al-lami was in good connections with Hizbullah in Lebanon, something which had given him a strong affiliation to Iraqi Hizbullah’s Brigades and was the Spiritual guider of the group in Iraq.

in 2008, Al-lami was arrested by U.S. forces because he entered into Iraq with a forged passport – and no doubt that he was coming from Lebanon, after a long meeting with Nasrallah (Head of Hizbullah Lebanon) and after a close follow-up and surveillance from the intelligence. at that time Al-lami was accused of being top leader of the special armed groups that is being led by Iran, he was accused of plotting/planning of killing more than 410 governmental personalities in Iraq, as well as accused of bombing the Consulting Security Center in Al-Sadr city in Baghdad.

the question remains – since Al-lami is deeply involved in targeting Iraqi christians how come the U.S. hasn’t taken all the reports about the role of Hizbullah’s Brigades in Iraq and other militant groups in consideration when it come to the destiny and lives of Iraqi Christians who are considered the indigenous people of Iraq? why with all this amount of security reports that accuse Al-lami with all these actions still he was free and leading a sensitive position in Iraq which had put the lives of other people at risk? will the Americans in Iraq have the same credibility as before?

Abu Huthaifa al-Battawi

BAGHDAD – The man accused of masterminding an attack on a
Baghdad church last year wrestled a gun from a guard at a detention facility, freed
his comrades and launched an hours-long assault that ended with 17 people dead,
including a top counterterrorism officer, officials and witnesses said.

Abu Huthaifa al-Battawi, the man accused by authorities of
plotting the October attack on an Iraqi church killing 68 people, nearly drove
out of Baghdad’s
Ministry of Interior with fellow inmates before being gunned down by guards.

The melee at the sprawling compound raises questions about
how a group of prisoners at what is supposed to be one of the most secure
facilities in the country managed to launch such a fierce attack.

The detainees, all accused of belonging to al-Qaida in Iraq,
were being moved from a detention room to an interrogation room at the ministry
grounds in eastern Baghdad when one of the detainees attacked a guard and
wrestled away his weapon, said Maj. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi, the top military
spokesman in Baghdad.

Two interior ministry officials said it was al-Battawi who
launched the attack. One official said al-Battawi’s hands had just been untied
for his interrogation when he grabbed the weapon.

The detainee killed the guard, moved into one of the rooms
and killed another guard and took his weapon, al-Moussawi said. In all, the
detainees managed to seize four weapons including an assault rifle.

An Iraqi lawmaker on the security and defense committee, Hakim
al-Zamili, said they also managed to get their hands on grenades.

The prisoners then entered the office of Brigadier Muaeid
Mohammed Saleh, the head of a department responsible for combating terrorism
and organized crime in eastern Baghdad,
and shot him along with another officer who was in the room.

“I was in the next room close to Brigadier Muaeid’s
room and I heard shots fired and screams in the corridor. I opened the door and
saw about four al-Qaida detainees moving around and I closed the door back
immediately,” said Saleh’s bodyguard, Jawad Kadhum.

“Then I heard one of them saying ‘This is the director’s
room,’ and I heard a flurry of gunshots,” he said.

Al-Moussawi said the assault by the prisoners was not
spontaneous but appeared to have been plotted ahead of time. He said six police
and 11 detainees were killed in the ensuing melee which lasted for nearly three
hours before Iraqi security forces brought the situation under control.

A group of the detainees, including al-Battawi, managed to
seize a car and were driving toward the gate of the compound when a guard
opened killed them with a machine gun, al-Zamili said.

Al-Moussawi said the detainees were not shackled at the time,
which is normal procedure except that since they were accused of being involved
in al-Qaida, they should have been restrained.

“I blame the security measures in this case because
they were senior terrorists,” he said. “Tight security measures
should have been taken.”

An Interior Ministry official on the scene said the guards
violated procedure by keeping their weapons with them when moving the prisoners.
Usually when prisoners are taken into the investigation room their restraints
are removed but guards are not supposed to have their weapons on them at the

The official said about 20 to 25 prisoners were involved in
the melee.

An additional eight police officers and six detainees were
wounded, security and hospital officials said.

The injured detainees were brought to Baghdad’s al-Kindi hospital under tight
security, treated and then taken away again by security officials to an
unidentified location, officials said.

All the officials spoke on condition of anonymity because
they were not authorized to speak to the media.

It is the latest embarrassing incident for Iraqrelated to
its detention facilities.

In January, 12 inmates, many believed to have links to al-Qaida
in Iraq, were awaiting trial
in a temporary detention center in the southern city of Basra when they obtained uniforms and walked
out in disguise. They scattered after that to avoid the massive manhunt. At
least two were later picked up by security officials in northernIraq.

Sunday’s prison attack immediately led to cries of outrage
over how such an incident could have happened.

“The Interior Ministry lets large number of dangerous
terrorist leaders gather in one cell without any means of surveillance such as
cameras and this makes them free to plot and even give orders to people outside
to carry out attacks through mobiles smuggled to them in the prison,” al-Zamili
