Inside Story Last updated: 15 Aug 2014 20:28
........Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki agreed to step down on Thursday after eight years in office. In a sudden change of heart, Maliki caved in to domestic and international pressure.
He had been accused of misrule and monopolising power, divisive politics that have fractured Iraq and opened the door to fighters from the Islamic State, and a Sunni rebellion."
...."Opened the door to fighters from Islamic State".... aka ISIS. Exactly what desired by the Jesuits with their alliance with SHIA Islam - already forgot the "Hezbollah salutes the pope" etc.???... In case you have a void of memory, here only two years ago, pope Benedict 16. in good relations with SHIA....:

"Hezbollah welcomes the pope in the homeland of coexistence"
"Hezbollah welcomes the pope in the homeland of coexistence"
..."And international pressure".... Well, OK, exactly on 14th August, Thursday, when Al Maliki resigned, the jesuit pope was on the airplane:
SEOUL, South Korea (2nd UPDATE) – Pope Francis on Thursday, August 14, kicked off a 5-day visit to South Korea fuelled by the Vatican's desire to expand the Church in Asia despite challenges posed by governments like atheist China.
Quentin Tarantino's rule. Now ISIS intensified the operations. In perfect timing with the pope's visit of Korea and his need of blood, in order to have the perfect horror-choreography for his celebration of the Catholic "martyrs" of Korea:

The Hezbollah salues le pope? I guess if also Al Maliki did salute his eminence, in September 2012..
On 16 July 1979, al-Maliki fled Iraq after he was discovered to be a member of the outlawed Islamic Dawa Party. According to a brief biography on the Islamic Dawa Party's website, he left Iraq via Jordan in October, and soon moved to Syria, adopting the pseudonym "Jawad". He left Syria for Iran in 1982, where he lived in Tehran until 1990, before returning to Damascus where he remained until U.S. coalition forces invaded Iraq and toppled Saddam's regime in 2003. While living in Syria, he worked as a political officer for Dawa, developing close ties with Hezbollah and particularly with Iran, supporting that country's effort to topple Saddam's regime...".
Al Maliki salue le pope. Amen.
Anbar tribal council: 'ISIS' operations in northern Iraq benefit Al-Maliki'
- Friday, 08 August 2014 17:36
"The Islamic State's operations against the territory region are in the interest of Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki as they help him win his third term," President of the Revolutionaries Council of Anbar province tribes, Sheikh Ali Hatem Suleiman, said.....".
Etc etc. Look at the date: only some days before the departure of the pope for Korea. It seems they didn't help him to win the third term. Because the only winner is: the Jesuit pope.
ISIS terror attacks serve Maliki's goals, EIFA states
- Published on Monday, 11 August 2014 15:40
The European Iraqi Freedom Association has strongly condemned attacks by ISIS terrorists on Christians, Yazidis and Kurds, which it claims are serving the interests of the Iranian regime and Iraq's prime minister Nouri al-Maliki.
And the only solution to the ongoing crisis is for Maliki to be removed from power and replaced by a national salvation government, EIFA said.
The Brussels-based association said in a statement: "EIFA appreciates measures undertaken by the United States to save the victims of these atrocities and once again emphasizes that the root cause of this crisis is Maliki’s government and the meddling of the Iranian regime that is using Iraq as a launching pad for imposing its hegemony over the world of Islam and the Arab world.
"The criminal measures by ISIS against Christians and Yazidis and the aggression against the Iraqi Kurds serves the interests of the Iranian regime and the Maliki government.
"Failure to separate this terrorist and criminal band from the Iraqi people, especially the Sunnis and the Military Council of the Iraqi revolutionaries, the tribes and the Sunni religious leaders is to fall into the very trap that the Iranian regime and Maliki have prepared. Meanwhile, the real opposition to Maliki is fighting to liberate the country and continues to condemn the atrocities by ISIS despite its own dire and perilous situation."
Both Iraq's General Military Council and The Association of Muslim Scholars of Iraq have called for an end to brutalities against Kurds and other minorities in the north of Iraq and accused the Maliki government of reaping 'windfall gains' from the attacks.
EIFA noted how Sunni leader Mufti Rafe al-Refaei also said on August 8: "Is attacking the province of Kurdistan a reward to the side that has given refuge to the Iraqi people? This revolution set out to fight the tyrants and not to fight with our brothers in Kurdistan who are themselves the target of militias.
"Those who fight the Kurdistan province are not from the revolutionaries. Those who make people homeless are not the revolutionaries. Those who attack Kurdistan and make people homeless wish to aid Maliki and to advance the plan and programme of Iran. The attack on this province aims to create rifts between Arabs and Kurds. We and the Kurds are on the same course."
EIFA added: "Undoubtedly, the fact that Maliki is still in power has greatly complicated the situation and strengthened the presence of the Iranian regime in Iraq. In such circumstances, if the military intervention by US is not balanced with a series of political measures, we will end up with a still more perilous situation.
"The crisis in Iraq can only be resolved through the eviction of the Iranian regime from that country. The removal of Maliki is just the first step in this path.
"A national salvation government composed of all sectors of Iraqi society, including those that have so far been marginalized in the political process, is an imperative and needs to be followed soon by a free election under the complete supervision of the United Nations.
"This salvation government must include the moderate religious leaders, tribes and military councils who are fighting against Maliki. Such a government would open the way to confronting ISIS on a national scale."
