Anas Al Tikriti (picture), a london-based prominent Iraqi activist and political analyst, in a statement to Ikhwanweb downplayed the implications of Al-Zarqawi’s death, which he did not believe will end the chaos in Iraq.  Al Tikriti pointed out that “After the invasion of Iraq in 2003, the occupation forces led us to believe that Saddam Hussein was behind Iraqi resistance and the acts of violence in Iraq. However, after Saddam was captured, the violence and the daily killings did not abate”

Al Tikriti said that he discovered during his latest visit to Iraq that A-Zarqawi’s role in Iraqi resistance was significantly exaggerated “Al-Zarqawi’s actions did not serve Iraq’s or the Iraqi people’s best interests but was only benefiting the occupation forces”. Al Tikriti was quick to clarify that he certainly does not mean to accuse Al Zarqawi of collaboration with the occupation but “only criticizing his (Al Zarqawi’s) actions and his way of resistance which was widely rejected by the majority of the Iraqi people”

Occupation is the cause of the problem

Al Tikriti also lashed out at the occupation forces accusing them of being the real cause of destruction in Iraq and killings of the Iraqi people “It was the occupation in the first place which opened the doors for Al-Zarqawi or the Badr Brigades (Shiite militia) which kill the Sunni scholars on a daily bases. It was also the same ugly occupation and through its horrific actions in Abu Gharib and the massacres in Haditha and Ishaqi, that caused some Iraqis to sympathizes with Al-Zarqawi and those like him”

Legitimate resistance against occupation is patriotic

Al Tikriti called upon members of the Iraqi resistance to embolden its true patriotic image before the world and refrain from killing for the sake of killing but only to resist the occupation. He concluded by reaffirming the right of the Iraqis to engage in legitimate resistance against foreign occupation abiding by the international laws and traditions
