Only Israel is Sovereign: Iraqi PM cannot have opinion
Colonialists, especially of the Angl0-Saxon and Teutonic-Zionist varieties, depend upon local stooges to carry out their nefarious occupations. Here is what happened to one, the curent Prime Minister of Iraq in Washington, DC. Do not be disappointed if this leads you to think that the US does not recognize free speech or sovereignty any more. Those are anti-Zionist concepts.
The Arab calls for immediate cease-fire created complications for President Bush yesterday when he hosted Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, who urged a cease-fire at a press conference with Bush.
Maliki, who has been quoted as blaming "Israeli aggression" for the conflict, ducked a question asking him to clarify his own view of Hezbollah.
That prompted demands from Democratic lawmakers for Maliki to be disinvited from his speech today to a joint session of Congress - demands rejected by Republican leaders who control Congress.
"What side is he on? Iraq is supposed to be our great ally. Well, what the heck are we doing if the prime minister, who's supposed to be an ally, refuses to condemn Hezbollah?" fumed Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.). Schumer vowed to boycott today's session and a number of other Democrats say they'll also snub the speech, raising questions about whether the hall will be embarrassingly empty.
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) said it was "disappointing" that Maliki didn't take the chance to condemn Hezbollah but said she'll go to today's Maliki speech.
Rep. Nita Lowey (D-Westchester) said Maliki knows the cost of terror in Iraq and "should know better than to condemn another sovereign nation for defending itself."
