Skip to comments.Iraqi Documents Contradict Senate Report that Saddam Regime was “Intensely Secular” (Translation)
Posted on 09/21/2006 8:31:32 AM PDT by jveritas
Saddam's regime is intensely secular and is wary of Islamic revolutionary movements. This is a quote from page 77 of the Senate Select Intelligence Committee (SSIC) report on Saddam regime WMD and his ties to terrorism issued on September 8th 2006. The disgraceful and politically motivated SSIC report wanted to mislead the public that Saddam regime was strongly secular and the report wanted to make his relation with AL Qaeda as an impossible one because Al Qaeda is an extreme muslim group despite the fact that documents already have shown a meeting between Saddam Intelligence Service and Bin Laden in Sudan in 1995.
However there are two documents dated September 2002 that totally destroy this notion that Saddam regime was secular. Document CMPC-2004-005167.pdf is an Islamic FATWA for JIHAD against the United States and its allies because of the coming war against Iraq. This FATWA for JIHAD was issued by the International Islamic Conference Organization in Iraq and called on all the muslims in the world to use any available means to fight the United States and that it is the duty of each muslim to conduct JIHAD against the US. Another document, CMPC-2004-005285.pdf, contains memos from the writer of the FATWA for JIHAD to Saddam deputy Prime Minister and head of the Iraqi Military Industrialization Ministry informing him that they sent him copies of the FATWA for JIHAD and then a response form Saddam deputy Prime Minister thanking him for the copies.

Popular Islamic Conference Organization
A communiqué issued by the International Popular Islamic Conference Organization to the Islamic World
In the Name of God the most Merciful, the most Compassionate
Nation of the great Quran
It is not hidden from anyone what the American administration of evil, the Pharaoh of this age, and those enemies of Islam who are with them cause injustice to the worshipers, and corruption in this earth without any right, this state that call itself Great in todays world, and she indeed is great in its evil and sins, and it bad influence on the world, since its crimes against humanity is more known than fire on a flag, and what its doings in Japan, Vietnam, Palestine, and Afghanistan, and other countries in the world, and today she targets the center of power in the Islamic world, politically, economically, socially, and militarily, and direct its sinful strikes, under false mottos that does not convince except the simples among humans.
And she made the preparations to conduct a new aggression against Iraq, against the Iraq of patient Mujahedeens, the beating heart of the Islamic world, and its treasure of achievements, this pious country that said in its full mouth to America-the Pharaoh of this age- (NO), and warn the world from the danger of silence against her injustice, and proved with witness and proof trough its experience that he paid heavily for it with his blood and money, that if the dominance of this State is not stopped, she will spoil the earth and attack each just cause in the world.
Muslims . Children of the unification, and men of unification
The legal duty obliges all the muslims, wherever they are and wherever they stay, to call upon each other, speak their words, and make a stand to prevent this aggression, with all the available means, to prevent the spelling of the pure blood of more muslims, and to preserve what is left from their wealth, and to respect who still have sovereignty over their countries, and if this aggression occurs- God forbid- then the declaration of JIHAD against the American administration of evil, is a clear duty for each muslim capable of JIHAD through money or SELF and the same applies against the international parties that stand behind and with this aggression. They must declare their solidarity with the Iraqi muslim people, and that they should come out in heavy marches and big demonstrations and declare their stand side to side with the their brethren in Iraq, and start their volunteering for the honored fighting with them and against who want them death and destruction, and they must work to boycott the American administration of evil, and who stand behind her politically, economically, and strike their interests, and everyone who wishes to weaken their power and disappoint them.
God is great and the honor is for islam and muslims This FATWA was signed by more than 500 scholars

Thank you again and again jveritas, you are the man.
The only thing that pisses me off is that the "powers that be" pay these docs no mind.
You should be on the WH payroll and brought out by Tony Snow to meet and talk to the press.
He always fell back on his Arab "brethen" to unite and destroy America. It's no surprise they will kill each other just as easily but they are united against us and share the same ruthless bloodthirst and fascism.
So, aside from this being a rather transparent way for a secular government to gain support by whipping up the emotions of it's more religious citizens, what's the big deal? All this shows is that Saddam's government was willing to exploit it's people by pushing their buttons. That's not exactly news.
Thanks JD. I prefer my engineering job since I will not be very nice to the morons in the press :)
So it is OK for Saddam secular regime as you are calling him, to endorse hundreds of sheikhs and scholars to issue a FATWA for JIHAD against the US but still convince yourself that Saddam was secular!
Great work! I doubt it will even make page 12 on the NYTs, but the truth is out there and the left is trying to bury it.
Sometimes these get posted at DU. Predictably, they end up calling you names. But that is the level of maturity over there.

Please add the keyword prewardocs to any articles pertaining to this subject.
An "intensely secular" regime whose leader had a copy of the Koran written out in his own blood.
Did Chavez and I'madinnerjacket help write this?
Bump and thanks.
More news not worth talking about.
Just how much more evidence that Saddam Hussein was complicit in terrorist acts needs to be exposed ?
One has to be either niave or just obscenely biased to not believe that an organization as large, pervasive and well funded as Al-Qaida existed in the mideast without at least the tacit approval of the leaders of Iraq, Iran, Syria etc.
saving for later
Exactly correct. Also it is impossible for AL Qaeda to establish such strong presence in Iraq after the US invasion. Al Qaeda could not have possibly established this huge network in Iraq if they were not allowed to do so by Saddam long before the war started.
More good work my FRiend. Just shows the Butcher was only secular until he thought the religious fanatics could help his evil intentions.
Thanks for the pings and for the exceptional work! I agree with others that you should be invited to the WH and educate some of those in Washington!!
Awesome job Joseph.
This also is another bullet against the absurd conclusion that Saddam didn't view the U.S. as an enemy. (as if his praise of every attack on the U.S. and other documents about his hatred of and threats of the U.S. weren't enough)
Not me, jveritas should! He does the work!!
Thank you for the pings and Thanks to JV for the excellent work in translating these docs...information is a key factor in defeating the enemy
You deserve a lot of thanks for organizing the Iraqi Prewar documents threads :)
