IRAQ - US bombing of Islamic State forces is no answer to sectarian violence

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
Something else our rulers and much of the media fail to explain is the background to the sudden rise of the Islamic State Forces (ISF, formerly ISIS). We are supposed not to know that the US and its allies such as Qatar and Saudi Arabia funded and helped them in order to fight Syrian president Assad. Now, because they are threatened by the growing power of the ISF, they turn even to that ‘evil entity’ Iran for assistance, and they also look likely to side with Assad whom only last year they were threatening to bomb.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu My Plea to the people of Israel: Liberate yourselves by liberating Palestine

IAWM BULLETIN 22 AUGUST 2014 - GAZA STALL THIS SATURDAY and NO TO NATO PROTESTS IN WALES NEXT WEEK

IAWM BULLETIN 22 AUGUST 2014

1. IPSC stall and leafleting for GAZA, Saturday 23rd August, GPO. 12-2pm.
2. NO TO NATO NATO Protests, Newport, Wales. 30th August – 05th Sept.
3. Donating to the Irish Anti-War Movement.

1. IPSC stall and leafleting for GAZA, Saturday 23rd August, GPO. 12.00-2.00pm.
As the situation in Gaza deteriorates further with extensive Israeli military bombing and huge suffering for the civilian population there it is important to keep up the protests and solidarity work. Please come along to this IPSC stall on Saturday to help with leafleting and informing the public. Bring flags, placards etc. If enough people attend we will march down Henry Street for a boycott awareness action.

2. NO TO NATO PROTESTS, Newport, Wales. 30TH August – 05th Sept.

The Irish anti-War Movement is supporting this event in Wales and sending delegates. If any IAWM members would like to join us you are most welcome.

As NATO member countries stir up tension in the Ukraine and support the horrific Israeli military bombardment of Gaza the momentum for organised resistance to this year's NATO summit in Newport, Wales has grown.

The increasing sectarian violence in Iraq over the last few weeks has shown
the invasion of Iraq has failed by every measure and the Iraqi people are
suffering.

All the leaders of the key Western powers will be in South Wales for the
NATO summit so we need the biggest possible protests to force them to
break from their aggressive foreign policies. A whole week of protest is
planned during the week of the summit, details of which you can find
below.

Help us build the No to NATO protest.

Details here: http://www.ipsc.ie/event/dublin-freedom-justice-for-palestine-national-d...

All out for Palestine this Saturday.

In just four weeks at least 1900 people killed in Gaza, including 373 children – see http://www.dhakatribune.com/world/2014/aug/08/name-373-children-killed-g....
400,000 people displaced i.e. almost 25% of the population. This is equivalent to 4895 dead and 1,086,690 people displaced in Ireland! Yet Irish Government recently, shamefully abstained on a UN vote to have an investigation into war crimes. Let the Irish Government know what you think this Saturday. Come along and support the people of Gaza and all of Palestine.

The launch was addressed by Clare Daly TD, artist Robert Ballagh, the Chair of CND the Revd. Patrick Comerford, former MEP Patricia Mc Kenna and writer, historian and secretary of the IAWM Steering Committee, John Molyneux.
