BAGHDAD (Dispatches) – The Zionist regime will be wiped off the map although the occupying regime is normalizing its relations with Arab regimes, Nouri al-Maliki, the former Iraqi prime minister says.
Maliki, who is current secretary general of Iraq’s Islamic Dawa Party, made the prediction, noting that whatever the regime builds on Palestinian territories will return to the Muslims.
Warning that the Zionists are seeking to enslave nations, he stressed that their hope for normalization with a Shia Muslim country will never come true.
The remarks came after a number of Arab regimes rushed to forge formal diplomatic ties with the Zionist regime, which triggered an outcry in the Muslim world. Palestinians consider the treacherous normalization deals by the UAE, Bahrain, and Sudan a stab in the back of the Palestinian cause.
In mid-September, U.S. President Donald Trump presided over the signing of the normalization pacts between the Zionist regime, the UAE and Bahrain.
Maliki said the Arab rulers have resorted to normalizing relations
with the Zionist regime in order to maintain their positions.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Maliki strongly denounced French President Emmanuel Macron’ insult to Islam’s Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) and praised a wave of worldwide protests and condemnations.
He further expressed regret that some Arab rulers failed to adopt a stance against Macron’s anti-Muslim comments.
Additionally, the Iraqi politician touched on anti-government protests in Iraq, saying foreign intelligence agencies are closely monitoring the situation and want sabotage and destruction to deal a blow to the country.
He also emphasized that paralyzing ordinary people’s lives and disrupting work is not a civilized approach.
Starting in October 2019, Iraqi people staged street protests in several cities over unemployment and a lack of basic services, calling for economic reforms and a meaningful fight against corruption in state institutions.
Some protesters say the alleged corruption is to be traced back to a ruling elite’s monopoly of power since the United States’ 2003 invasion of the Arab country.
Reports say some 550 people were killed and 30,000 injured as the rallies took a violent turn.
The protests led to the resignation of prime minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi, who was replaced by Mustafa al-Kadhimi in May following months of political deadlock.
