Sunnis Confirm Intent to Participate in Elections

Haider Ajina sends his translation of an article that appeared today in the Iraqi newspaper Nahrain, titled “Iraqi Sunni Accord confirms that Sunnis will participate in the next elections”:

Adnan Mohamed Selman, president of the Iraqi Sunni Accord, confirmed that Iraqi Arab Sunnis will participate in the next elections. This was backed up by Nasier Alaani, a leader in the Iraqi Islamic Party [a Sunni party] who said that it is of utmost importance that all Iraqis of all factions participate in the writing of the constitution.

Haider adds his comments:

Those Sunni leaders who called for the boycott of the Iraqi elections have realized the error of their ways and the damage they did to themselves, their followers and Iraq as a whole. These same leaders are now joining the river of democracy, which quenches the Iraqi peoples’ thirst for freedom and security. They realize that terrorism and supporting terrorism is not the way.

The terrorists have lost. They’re nothing but psychopaths and criminals now, and everyone knows it, with the possible exception of a few deluded Western leftists.
