Friday, 9 October 2015
Our guest this week is the Secretary-General of the National Salvation Front in Iraq, Moder Shawkat, who calls for the formation of a Saud-led army backed by Arab countries and putting an end to the situation on the Iraqi ground. On the other hand, he demands the formation of a Sunnite territory that will, according to him, prevent the countries affiliated from taking parts of Iraq. As for the Popular Mobilization Forces, he believes that they do not have a national doctrine but a sectarian one and explained that the Arab Sunnite consider the Sunnite enrolled in this organization as hired. He also believes that the Arab Sunnites were not represented in the elections and leaders from the Islamic Party were imposed on them.
