Chairman of the Scholars’ Council of Iraq:‎
By launching a soft war, the arrogant powers seek to create dissension between the people ‎of Iran and Iraq
Rasa – Hujjat al-Islam al-Nasiri emphasized the need to recognize the role of the United ‎States and the Zionist regime and the soft war launched against the Iraqi people.‎

RNA – In an exclusive interview with Rasa News Agency, Hujjat al-Islam Yusuf al-Nasiri, the ‎chairman of the Scholars’ Council of Iraq, referred to the recent events in Iraq’s southern city ‎of Basrah, stating, “The demands of the people of Basrah, such as healthy drinking water, ‎the repair of electricity services and the improvement of urban services are the right of the ‎people and are correct.”‎


The deputy director of the Harakat Hezbollah al-Nujaba added, “Popular protests ‎accompanied by aggression and the destruction of public property have led to a deviation of ‎the demonstrations such that the chants that were shouted over the past few days weren’t in ‎line with the demands of the people, especially the genuine people of Basrah, who are ‎warriors, believers and have a very strong role in the fight against the disbanded Ba’athist ‎Party, the occupation of the United Kingdom, the United States and the Daesh terrorist ‎phenomenon.”‎


He pointed to the role of Western and Arab countries in the deviation the peaceful and ‎rightful demonstrations of the people, saying, “Today, we see the deviation of the protests ‎from the main and central axis and the agents of the infiltration of the United States, the ‎occupying Zionist regime, the Wahhabis and the United Arab Emirates have been flaring up ‎the events over the past few days‏.‏‎”‎


Hujjat al-Islam al-Nasiri added, “The arrogant countries, by paying large sums of money to ‎some of their agents, mobilize the youth to achieve their goals, and on the other hand, ‎some members of the Ba’athist Party from different regions, such as al-Anbar Governorate, ‎use the Zionist regime to implement their plots‏.‏‎”‎


The Iraqi Shi’ah scholar stated, “Basrah has enjoyed great economic and human capacities ‎and has been known only in the Middle East since ancient times‏.‏‎ The United Arab Emirates, ‎the Wahhabis, the Zionist regime, the United Kingdom and the United States aren’t working ‎for the development and development of Basrah and on this basis, they using various ‎methods to destroy Iraq‏.‏‎”‎


Referring to the attack by the arrogant countries against the offices and centres of the ‎Popular Mobilization Forces and the consulate of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Basrah, he ‎said, “We strongly condemn the aggression by the infiltrators against the offices of various ‎Iraqi battalions, the Popular Mobilization Forces, the Iranian consulate and the Popular ‎Mobilization Forces’ Hospital‏.‏‎ At the same time, the Popular Mobilization Forces Hospital was ‎attacked and those who were admitted to this hospital were the same people who defended ‎Basrah and Iraqi territory with their lives against the terrorist phenomenon.”‎


Hujjat al-Islam al-Nasiri continued, “The attack on the consulate of the Islamic Republic of ‎Iran is incorrect and contradictory to the national interests of Iraq and the perpetrators of ‎this attack should have attacked the American embassy that destroyed the country instead ‎of attacking the Iranian consulate. Although the attack on the Iranian Consulate was wrong, ‎it gave us an opportunity to know the members of the Ba’athist Party and the infiltrators‏.‏‎”‎


He emphasized the need to recognize the role of the United States and the Zionist regime ‎and the soft war launched against the Iraqi people and stated, “We must learn the rules of ‎the soft war and must not think that there aren’t problems in this country but rather, as long ‎as the United States and its agents are active in activities against Iraq on social media, such ‎as Twitter, our country will be faced with a variety of problems.”‎


His Eminence said that the Iraqi people strongly condemn the actions of the United States ‎and added, “The Iraqi people must hold a march in support of the Popular Mobilization ‎Forces, the Islamic Republic of Iran and against the political pressure by the United States ‎because the United States doesn’t want political stability and economic progress for Iraq.”
