Posted on 10/26/2006 6:01:13 PM PDT by jveritas
Document CMPC-2003-015588.pdf which is dated March/25/2003 talks about a meeting between Iraqi Officials in Damascus and the leaders of the Popular Front For the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) a terrorist group lead by Ahmad Gibril. The Palestinians pledged 500 fighters including groups that they call IstishHadeyea which means Suicide Martyrdom i.e. Suicide Terrorists to come to Iraq and fight the US lead collation troop. The group also included terrorists who are IED experts and car bombs experts. These hundreds of Palestinians terrorists were to go to Iraq through Syria. The Iraqis approved this Palestinians offer, and in handwritten note over the typed memo; Taha Yassin Ramadan who is Saddam Chief Deputy not only approved it but he wanted to know the time of arrival of these terrorists and where to meet them on the Syrian/Iraqi borders so they can send the vehicles to pick them up. What is also interesting in the memo is that the PLF was working with Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and other Palestinian Organizations to increase the suicide operations they call it Feedaeya inside Israel so it will coincide with the war against the coalition troops.
This is another document which proves that it was Saddam Hussein who brought the Foreign Terrorists to Iraq, those terrorists that have caused so much death and destruction to the Iraqi people and Iraqi infrastructures and they are still doing it until now. Other documents that have been translated and posted here on FR talk about the Iraqi training the Foreign Terrorists and a Saddam memo to treat them as equally as the Iraqi Special Forces.

Great post, thanks for the information.
Ya, for some reason stuart was convinced that I was out of line by saying CNN was a propaganda mill for the enemy.
He was posting yet one more of their "5 Americans Die" stories, right behind their "We are losing" stories which were right along side their "Iraqis want us to leave" stories.
So I thought I would share with him that there is another side to the story.
Your translations just keep bringing us closer and closer to the truth. Thanks again for all you do!

This could be a particularly useful translation, as the message in it is exceedingly clear (something the left could actually understand).
I don't really watch much tv, and when I do, it's usually just 20min or so of Fox or the local news in the morning before I go to work.
The mention of Syria seems significant. Syria has run Hamas for years, and Islamic Jihad at least in part. The PFLP gets support from Damascus, and they speak about using all three groups in Iraq to fight off the American invasion. It implies strongly that Syria partnered with Saddam Hussein at some level, which again begs the question about Saddam's missing weapons. Did Damascus partner with Saddam on those as well as on martyrdom operations and insurgent fighting?
In any case, it shows that the previous thinking on the entry of foreign insurgents was not entirely correct. Saddam didn't keep terrorists out of Iraq; in this case, he has a good enough relationship with the PFLP and through them Hamas and Islamic Jihad to call on them for action on his behalf. Supposedly these groups only have Palestinian interests in mind, but here they seem anxious to help rescue a secular Iraqi dictator. Saddam had plenty of connections to terrorists in the region, and it hardly surprises that he would rely on them in his hour of need. (h/t: Squiggler)
Thanks for the Ping. I greatly appreciate Captain Quarters help in getting the truth out regarding these documents.
So many facts being assembled that show Saddam supported terrorist organizations. And a majority of Americans continue to not have a clue.
Sun Tsu supports the way in which we are fighting this war. It'd be nice if the media ever told the truth.
Shhhh! Don't tell Condi! To her, they are all like the Revolutionary Minutemen, for who "America's greatest legacy" would be to give them a terror state of their own.
