Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, a darling of the Council on Foreign Relations, tells the corporate media the “insurgents are trying ‘everything’ to foment civil war as reprisal attacks followed yesterday’s bombing of the Golden Mosque in Samarra, sacred to Shiite Muslims,” according to Bloomberg. “Anti-democratic forces have tried everything to push the country into a civil war and sectarian violence.” On the latter, Zebari is absolutely correct, although the “extremists” are not Saddam partisans but rather agents and operatives of the Straussian neocons.

Tariq al-Hashemi, leader of the Sunni Iraqi Islamic Party, released a statement spelling out the obvious: Iraqis should not be “dragged [into] a civil war as nobody will win,” nobody that is except the Jabotinsky Zionists in Israel and the Straussian neocons in the United States who are determined to destroy Islamic and Arab society and culture. Unfortunately, both Sunni and Shia Iraqis are falling for the latest provocation, killing each other in numbers and fomenting warfare between religious sects, as Muslims in Europe and across the Middle East and Africa fell for the Jyllands-Posten cartoon provocation engineered by the Straussian neocons, thus convincing many Europeans and Americans that Muslims have a violent predisposition. As if one cue, James Jeffrey of the State Department blamed “al-Qaeda in Iraq” and its dead leader, Abu Musab al- Zarqawi, for the bombing, thus following the Straussian neocon script and putting the incident in a propaganda context the masses will understand.

It still remains unexplained why Sunni “insurgents” would bomb a sacred mosque containing the remains of Imam Ali al-Hadi, who died in 868 A.D., and his son Imam Hassan al-Askari, who died in 874 A.D, both descendants of the Prophet Muhammad. Obviously, this is a calculated attack on a Shia pilgrimage site, designed to enrage the Shia and pit them against the Sunni, a completely boneheaded move on the part of the Sunni resistance since it will create far more problems for them than it will solve. In fact, Shia mobs have already attacked Sunni mosques, murdered imams, and are likely in the process of slaughtering random Sunnis on Baghdad street corners. Logic in Bushzarro world dictates that in order to unite Iraq and eject the foreign invaders, the resistance must first enrage and alienate the majority of the people in the country, who are Shi’ites. Of course, in America and Europe, increasing numbers of people believe Arabs and Muslims are irrational and dangerously emotional and thus the unlikely prospect Sunni “insurgents” blew up the al-Askari Golden Mosque in Samarra is not only plausible for them, it is the only acceptable explanation.

As well, from a strategic perspective, a religious civil war in Iraq makes perfect sense as the Straussian neocons prepare to attack Iran. If the Sunnis and Shia are busy killing each other, it will be more difficult to rally them to fight against the Anglo-American forces in Iraq, especially after the planned shock and awe campaign against Iran, now considered inevitable. In fact, it is not unreasonable to consider the bombing of the Imam ‘Ali al-Hadi and Imam Hasan Al-’Askari mosque in Samarra as a milestone on the road to total war in the Muslim Middle East, a bellwether ominously indicating the decimation of Iran is on schedule, as the Straussian neocons, firmly in control of foreign policy, will not abandon their long held desire to foment a “clash of civilizations” and usher in decades of strife and misery and thus nudge the world a bit closer to the horrific prospect of nuclear Armageddon.
