Al-Sadr embarrasses Al-Amiri - Acceptance of your invitation to dialogue is conditional on abandoning the frameworkBaghdad – The Sadrist movement has placed the leader of the Al-Fateh Alliance Hadi Al-Amiri in a difficult position, by proposing a number of conditions in order to accept his call for dialogue to end the political crisis afflicting Iraq, and at the forefront of these conditions is Al-Amiri’s announcement of withdrawal from the coordination framework.

Observers believe that the conditions drawn by the Sadrist movement are aimed at cornering al-Amiri, as the latter is trying to appear in the guise of neutrality, despite the fact that he is an authentic party in the coordination framework led by Nuri al-Maliki.

Al-Amiri has been keen during the past hours to distance himself from the raging conflict between the leader of the State of Law coalition and the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, which threatens to slide the country into a Shiite-Shiite war.

Al-Amiri’s attempt to take a distance between Al-Maliki and Al-Sadr is nothing more than a process of distributing roles within the coordination framework

On Monday, the leader of the Al-Fateh Alliance renewed his call for the two parties to give priority to “the logic of reason, wisdom and restraint”, and to “provide the interest of the country and people through serious and constructive dialogue.”

Al-Amiri indicated, in a statement, that “in the atmosphere of media escalation, through statements and counter-statements, which call for mass mobilization, and may get out of control and lead to violence, I repeat my sincere appeal to the brothers in the Sadrist movement and to the brothers in the coordinating framework until they overcome.” The logic of reason, wisdom, restraint, deliberation, and advancing the interest of the country and people through serious and constructive dialogue.

The leader of the Badr Organization stressed that “solutions must be found to the points of differences between them,” saying that “the Iraqi people have provided abundant and dear blood from the seventies of the last century to this day. “The responsibility for shedding blood is borne by all.”

Al-Amiri’s calls for dialogue were met with a quick response by the Sadrist movement, as Ahmed al-Mutairi, head of the Sadrist movement’s political body, the leader of the Al-Fateh Alliance, demanded to formally withdraw from the coordinating framework.

Al-Mutairi said in a statement, “I understand through your statement that you are not part of the framework, knowing that you are the pole of the mill and have long demanded for them and were not satisfied with the entry of part of them with the current in the formation of the government previously.”

Ahmed Al-Mutairi: Either you (Al-Amri) announce your withdrawal, or you are still within the framework of sedition

He added, “Your speech should be for the framework and not for the movement. We are not the ones who ask for blood or sedition. Hear the speeches of your allies within the framework. Either you announce your withdrawal from them, or you are still with them within the framework of the strife they want. We and our leadership think well of you, but (killing people is half-solutions)” And how do you ask us to have a dialogue with someone who threatens a national leader, a political leader, a master, a descendant, and an heir to Al-Sadr’s approach, how do you accept that we have a dialogue with someone who threatens to kill him.”

The statement continued, “All of you, without exception, know that al-Maliki spoke these words over and over again, and we are certain that it was not fabricated, and Muqtada al-Sadr demanded your condemnation of this leak, but you did not denounce and did not respect the sanctity of God in the rest of the chest.”

Al-Mutairi said, “Oh beloved, good: We need actions, not words.

Since last Thursday, Baghdad has witnessed a dangerous escalation, with thousands of Sadrists’ supporters protesting against the nomination of a prime minister close to al-Maliki, and their declaration on Saturday of open disobedience in the Iraqi parliament.

In the midst of this charged atmosphere, calls for calm and dialogue continue, including those issued by al-Amiri, who is clearly seeking to maintain communication opportunities, similar to the role he played during the presence of the Sadrist movement within the political process.

Over the past months, and before al-Sadr withdrew from the political process last June, al-Amiri was the link between the Sadrist movement and the State of Law coalition. Sovereignty Sunni and the Kurdistan Democratic Party, but Al-Amiri refused to respond to these attempts.

◙ Al-Amiri was keen to distance himself from the raging conflict between the leader of the State of Law coalition, Nouri al-Maliki, and the leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr.

Despite al-Sadr’s sudden move to withdraw from the political scene, and al-Maliki’s monopoly on managing the upcoming power arrangements, al-Amiri was careful not to anger al-Sadr, even as this led to tension in the relationship between him and the leader of the State of Law coalition.

But the situation changed after the audio leaks attributed to al-Maliki, in which he attacked the leader of the Sadrist movement, who he described as ignorant and a client, speaking of a plan to eradicate the Sadrist movement, and these leaks constituted a great embarrassment for al-Maliki, who was forced to brake his impulse to monopolize the political process and an agreement was reached with the rest of the forces of the coordination framework On the support of his close associate, Muhammad Shiaa al-Sudani, to head the government, a move that gave al-Sadr an excuse to mobilize his supporters, to turn the equation again in his favour.

Observers say that al-Amiri’s attempt to take a distance between al-Maliki and al-Sadr is nothing more than a process of distributing roles within the coordinating framework, noting that it is in the interest of al-Amiri, who leads the Al-Fateh Alliance, which is the political umbrella for the Iraqi armed militias, to stay within the framework, because the withdrawal will mean the loss of the position to which he appeals, As most of these militias prefer to stay in the boat of al-Maliki.
