Iraqi Politician Calls for Peace With Israel, Blasts Iran and Islamic State
JNS.org – Sunni Muslim Iraqi politician Mithal Al-Alusi, who leads the Ummah Party, told the Kuwaiti daily newspaper Al-Rai that Iraq should make peace with Israel. He also called Iran “insane” and said the Muslim world has created the Islamic State terror group by fostering a “mentality of vengeance and nullification of the other.”
“Yes. Israel is a state and I support peace with it,” Al-Alusi said in the interview, which was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
“I want to see an [Iraqi] embassy [in Israel] and the Iraqi flag flying atop it. This is in our interest. I do not want to tie our interests [solely] to Abu Mazen” and the Palestinian Authority, he said.
Iran, according to Al-Alusi, “is the most insane actor, which gambles with the lives of its sons, its people, and its history in order to [realize] the Iranian leaders’ false vision. It is inconceivable that Iran will control the region someday, and it does not have the power to do so.”
