IAWM STATEMENT ON IRAQ CRISIS - 27 AUGUST 2014
• US bombing of Islamic State forces is no answer to sectarian violence
• No to further western military intervention in Iraq
• Hypocrisy of western powers in different responses to Iraq and Gaza
Our rulers, aided by much of the media, are softening us up to accept more US and western intervention in the Middle East with various atrocity stories creating hysteria and fear. No doubt the atrocities are real – the beheading of US journalist James Foley is obviously appalling and must be condemned, as must the slaughter and expulsion of unarmed civilians in Iraq - but these stories are selectively presented to demonise the USA’s current enemies while ignoring equally brutal atrocities from their friends.
America’s ally, Saudi Arabia, regularly beheads people. It beheaded 19 people in the first half of August 2014 and in January 2013 beheaded a seventeen year old Sri Lankan servant girl. Being beheaded or dismembered by bombs dropped from 30,000 feet, as so many Iraqis and, more recently, the people of Gaza have suffered, is no less inhumane.
The Record of Western Policy
Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, in an exclusive article for Haaretz, calls for a global boycott of Israel and urges Israelis and Palestinians to look beyond their leaders for a sustainable solution to the crisis in the Holy Land.
