On September 17, Vice President of Iraq Nouri al-Maliki said in an official statement that Baghdad will not tolerate the creation of “another Israel” in northern Iraq through the upcoming Kurdistan Region independence referendum.

The statement was released after a meeting between al-Maliki and US Ambassador to Iraq Douglas A. Silliman.

“We will not allow the creation of the second Israel in northern Iraq,” the statement quoted Maliki as saying to the US ambassador.

Furthermore, al-Maliki warned that the referendum will have “dangerous consequences for the security, sovereignty and unity of Iraq”. Al-Maliki also said that the Kurdistan Region independence referendum should be “cancelled or postponed for being unconstitutional”.

In the end of his statement al-Maliki called the wise in Kurdistan and Iraq, and the Iraqi Government and Parliament to take immediate measures to “avoid this dangerous development [refereeing to the Kurdistan Region independence referendum] in order to protect the unity, integrity and interests of all Iraqis and the sovereignty of their country”.

Al-Maliki is one of the most influential political leaders of Iraq. Moreover, al-Maliki is considered Iran’s man in Iraq, and he is very close to the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), the largest armed force in the country.

Earlier, Iran announced that it will close the border with Iraqi Kurdistan if it proclaims independence.

    Yeah, do follow the western MSMs prestitutes and whorespondents when they tread around their own created barrel of liquid manure when it comes to debating referendums and independents.

    I bet the Spanish in Madrid is drooling something along with the bonkers EU about the Kurds right to an state for them self, carved out in the mist of others, in an country they have come to lately, not even genuinely native, and compare that to the Catalans (where you have other old states as the kingdom of Aragon, as one ex.), whom is by history, much, much older than the newly created Spain.

    To where if any rights, the Catalans have it all, its the Spain that it the problem, not the Catalans/Basque.
    And again I read, kilometer long row of sheets of shit, aka articles in our very own, “nothing but the truth” MSM in Norway just to give you an ex. but since Norway and Sweden the MSM is run by Joojos, they managed to write a lot of what Russia is going to do, invade the dump called the BallTicks, why, nobody knows and cares, its Da Putin that wants it to invading Romania, and again, a shit hole nobody cares about, packed to the brim with Romanians, huh.
    But the most fascinating aspect is the total lack of any what so ever referring or writings about the referendum and the election after, witch was done and monitored by western NGOs and Orgs, incl I think some Norwegians to, when that happened in Crimea soon 4 years ago, not an single word, but hey, dont let facts and shait like that disturb the nonsense.
    We live in an post truth world.
    Only feelings matters.

    Yeah, what could possibly go wrong.

    And of course, the Iraqis are correct, the Kurds have no rights, to be an group, yeah, but above the other natives, no way in hell, where you all rests under the umbrella called Iraq.

    The creation of Kurdistan , That is Israel 2.0.
    Just ask the Palestinians.
    Why dont anyone ask the rest of the natives in that region, weird isnt it, how silent it is.

    peace

    PS:saker have gone sour, pity, tsk tsk,tsk.

      Two Racists working in perfect harmony in denying Arabs their rightful lands and histories and trying massacre and commit genocide as it is their right. They have their fake history of lies to try to cover up their actions in genocides and massacres in the days of the Jewish Ottoman empire, this is too much.

    Kurdistan Region Independence referendum is Breakup of Yugoslavia 2: Electric Boogaloo.

    Nouri Al Maliki has seen it all, from the days of the US occupation, and dealing with their bullshit (see also, the ‘surge’ and ‘Anbar [non]-awakening’).

    To have survived this long as an Iraqi politician shows he’s the top gangsta of the hood, and he knows what new bullshit the US is planning with Kurds, he’s spot on with what he sees with this Kurdish referendum as more of US divide and conquer and carving up of Iraq. Calling it another Israel style project is hitting the nail on the head.
