    BAGHDAD, July 15 (VOI) - Izzat Ibrahim al Douri, Iraq's former military commander and Saddam Hussein's vice president, criticized al-Qaeda network in Iraq and Mahdi Army militias loyal to Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr in his first audio call, vowing to fight U.S. troops in Iraq. Al Douri, who has not been seen since the last days of Saddam's rule, became the leader of the Baath Party after Saddam's execution in December 2006. It was unclear why al Douri chose this time to release an audio tape — his first ever at a time that Iraq is witnessing an all time...

    DAMASCUS, Syria — A former top deputy to Saddam Hussein has urged followers in a letter to turn down proposals for reconciliation talks with the United States or the Iraqi government, according to former Baath party members outside Iraq familiar with the letter. It is unclear if the message from Izzat Ibrahim, Saddam's former vice president and now a fugitive with a $10 million bounty on his head, is being followed. But it appears aimed at blunting a flurry of diplomacy to stabilize Iraq, including efforts by several Arab governments to persuade Iraqi Sunni insurgents to lay down arms and...

    IT WAS supposed to be a show of Muslim unity to convince Western leaders to hold back from a war. Representatives of 54 Islamic countries representing a billion people gathered in the Gulf state of Qatar for a stage-managed plea for peace, but they left last night with their divisions laid bare. A bitter exchange of insults between the Iraqis and Kuwaitis was followed by a frank admission from the host nation that Arab states needed to be more honest with their people about the Gulf crisis — especially those, such as Qatar, that are hosting American forces. The extraordinary...

    DOHA, Qatar (Reuters) - Bitter enmity between Iraq and Kuwait erupted in a vitriolic name-calling match on Wednesday at an Islamic summit meant to unite the voices of the world's one billion Muslims against war. In a clash caught on live television before the Qatar state broadcaster shut down transmission, Iraqi President Saddam Hussein's top aide Izzat Ibrahim departed from his text to zero in on the Kuwaitis sitting across the conference chamber. "Shut up you minion, you (U.S.) agent, you monkey. You are addressing Iraq," Ibrahim said. "You are insolent. You are a traitor to the Islamic nation," he...

    BAGHDAD, Nov 19 (AFP) - The US-led coalition published Wednesday a wanted poster for Saddam Hussein's number two -- Izzat Ibrahim -- and offering a 10-million-dollar reward for his capture. "Information leading to the capture of Izzat Ibrahim al-Duri is worth up to 10 million dollars," says the black poster carrying his photograph saluting in military uniform. The 61-year-old former vice-president of Iraq's once all-powerful Revolution Command Council and long-time Saddam ally is suspected of coordinating attacks on coalition forces and masterminding an unholy alliance between Islamic militants and Baath party loyalists.

    AFP - The Al-Arabiya news channel said it had received a letter purportedly from Iraq's former number two Ezzat Ibrahim promising to avenge the deaths of Saddam Hussein's slain sons.

"I swear that no-one will be left at peace as long as Uday and Qusay are not avenged, as long as Iraq is not liberated and as long the infidel colonisers, traitors and apostates are not killed," said the...

    Saddam Hussein sought to protect George Galloway by severing the Iraqi intelligence service's contacts with the Labour backbencher, according to an official document found by The Daily Telegraph in Baghdad. This letter, found in the files of the Iraqi foreign ministry, explained that any disclosure of Mr Galloway's "relationship" with the Mukhabarat, which operated as both secret police and intelligence service, would do great harm to his political career. A letter from Izzat Ibrahim, Saddam's deputy on the Ba'ath Party's Revolutionary Command Council, dated May 6, 2000 stated that: "It is better not to engage the Mukhabarat in the relationship...

    EXCERPT - Washington -- U.S. intelligence officials are confident that a cruise missile attack at dawn Thursday killed several members of Saddam Hussein's inner circle, perhaps including one of his sons, but that Hussein himself is still alive, according to intelligence sources. They said that they believe Hussein's son Qusai, who was recently placed in charge of the defense of the Baghdad and Tikrit region, as well as one of Hussein's most trusted lieutenants, Izzat Ibrahim, may have been among those killed when cruise missiles hit a residential compound in the opening salvo of the war.

    BAGHDAD, Iraq, Oct. 19 — As Iraq confronts the possibility of a new war with the United States, its leaders appear to have concluded that they have one decisive advantage that they lacked during the countdown to the Persian Gulf war 12 years ago: this time, they seem convinced, the world is on their side and against the United States. "The world has abandoned America; it has become isolated," Saddam Hussein's No. 2 man, Izzat Ibrahim, boasted as he announced the result of this week's election: Iraqis, by official reckoning, had re-elected Saddam Hussein to his position of absolute power...

The ceremony was broadcast live on Iraqi TV. The vote, dismissed by exile groups and the United States, came in the shadow of a...
