Governor of Nineveh Who Fled Mosul: The Shiites Cannot Fight ISIS; Sunnis the Majority in the World

Governor of Nineveh Who Fled Mosul: The Shiites Cannot Fight ISIS; Sunnis the Majority in the World

Atheel Al-Nujaifi, governor of Iraq’s Nineveh Province, said, in a TV interview following his fleeing Mosul, that 80% of the army and the Iraqi police force in Nineveh had deserted even prior to the fall of Mosul into ISIS hands. “ISIS can be fought only by the Sunnis,” Al-Nujaifi said, in the June 19, 2014 interview on Russia Today’s Arabic TV channel. “The Shiites cannot fight ISIS, which will resort to sectarianism as a weapon against the Shiites.”

Following are excerpts:
Atheel Al-Nujaifi: The Iraqi army did not flee on the day [Mosul fell]. The desertion rate from the army and the Iraqi police force in Nineveh had reached 80% even prior to these events.
A few days beforehand, I visited one of the military regiments. An Iraqi regiment generally comprises 500 soldiers. When I visited one of the regiments, I saw that there were only 40 people there. Instead of 500 soldiers, there were only 40. How is this regiment expected to fight with only 40 soldiers?
Interviewer: What were the reasons behind the soldiers’ desertion? Was it because they were expecting attacks, because they were dissatisfied with their commanders’ orders, or did they simply lack conviction? Perhaps there were reasons behind this organized desertion.
Atheel Al-Nujaifi: There was a tense atmosphere. The Iraqi army acted in a sectarian way in Mosul. They tried to extort people. Many innocent civilians were arrested, and had to pay money for their release. People accused of real terrorism could easily buy a deal and be acquitted and released. It is the innocent people who languish in prison. People would be humiliated at checkpoints, on a sectarian basis.
This tense atmosphere has generated rejection, and the soldiers were not welcomed in Mosul.
The number of ISIS members entering Mosul did not exceed 1,000, but they did not encounter any opposition.
We can easily fight ISIS, but it won’t be easy for us to fight the people of Mosul. That is why I believe that things have become a bit complicated, and we must wait a while until things become clearer, and people realize that ISIS is one thing and getting rid of Al-Maliki is another.
We are trapped between ISIS and the Shiite militias. It is as if they are saying to us – the moderates who want to live in peace: You have no place in this new order.
Support must be provided for the moderates, for the people who can fight both ISIS and the extremist Iraqi militias, because, in my opinion, ISIS can be fought only by the Sunnis. The Shiites cannot fight ISIS, which will resort to sectarianism as a weapon against the Shiites.
ISIS should be fought under a Sunni, not a Shiite, umbrella. Secondly, the Sunnis must regain their true clout in Iraqi political decision-making. The alternative to forging such a balance is more Sunni radicalism.
Iran knows that Sunni radicalism is a very serious problem. The Sunnis are in the majority worldwide, while the Shiites are in the minority. I can’t believe that Iran will ever want to appear to be fighting all of the Sunnis.

TV Report on an Iraqi Town, Taken Over by ISIS

Following are excerpts from an Al-Jazeera Network report about the ISIS takeover of Hawija District in Iraq, which aired on June 23, 2014:
Reporter: Iraqi army vehicles are scattered on the sides of the road connecting Hawija District to Kirkuk. Some of them were destroyed and the people in them were killed, while others were taken over by the militants during the raid on the military camps and checkpoints. The ISIS banners are clearly visible, in what used to be Iraqi army posts.
When we arrived in the city, we encountered masked militants handing out candy to people passing through the checkpoints. Their faces were covered apparently for security reasons. Most of the militants in the Hawija District belong to ISIS.
Filed commander: Thanks to Allah, everything is running smoothly – in terms of day-to-day life, in terms security, in all aspects. Things are better than they were under the tyrannical rule.
Reporter: Only a few days have passed since Hawija was taken by the militants. The Iraqi citizens face difficulties, but they wait to see what the future has in store.
Hawija resident: There is a fuel crisis, but it shall pass, Allah willing. Today, fuel has arrived, and we tanked up.
Other Iraqi resident: Security here is fine. We have a shortage of fuel products, but that’s it.
Reporter: The militants control all four entrances to Hawija, and they have taken upon themselves to maintain security and run the town.
