Dear Sir,

 

 

SUB: FREE IRAQI PATRIOT MUNTATHER AL-ZAIDI

 

 

We are proud of Muntather Al-Zaidi for hurling his shoes at President Bush, shouting: “You dog! This is from the widows, the orphans and those who were killed in Iraq.” The throwing of the shoes symbolizes the anger of the Arabs, the Muslims and all peace loving people of the world at the atrocities committed by Bush and his Iraqi stooges against the Iraqi people, and the continuing illegal occupation of Iraq.

 

It is an act of great heroic defiance to power that will inspire millions of youths throughout the world to stand up and oppose United States imperialism and its local agents. It’s a message to the oppressors that all your cruise missiles and weapons of mass destruction cannot destroy the spirit of the Iraqi people to resist occupation and win freedom and justice.

 

The flying shoes aimed at Bush and his stooges symbolizes the victory of the poorly armed Iraqi Resistance over the heavily armed American Forces and the local traitors. Muntather’s brave act, knowing that he will be caught and tortured and may even be killed, has redeemed the honour and dignity of the Arabs and Muslims which have been bartered away by the despots and dictators of the  Arab and Muslim world.

 

We understand from news reports that Muntather has been tortured and wounded by the Iraqi and American security forces. The torturers and their Western masters must realize that they will have to pay for their crimes when the people of Iraq end the occupation and achieve liberation and freedom.

 

It has also been reported that he may be sentenced to two years’ imprisonment for insulting Bush. The one who should be in prison is not Muntather but Bush, the war criminal, who is responsible for the deaths of 1.5 million Iraqis and 4200 U.S soldiers, and the displacement of 5 million Iraqis.

 

We join hands with millions of people throughout the world and demand that the Iraqi Government immediately and unconditionally release the Iraqi patriot Muntather Al-Zaidi and bring to justice his torturers. 

 

 

Yours truly,

 

S.M Mohamed Idris

Chairman
