Why Raed Jarrar is on my shitlist!

For the longest time, I have been hearing about the Jarrar family and the blogging of one Raed Jarrar who was actually discouraging Iraqis to vote. Yesterday I decided to check out his blog because I heard ( or rather read on jeffery’s blog) that he said that this election will “open the doors of hell”. So I decided to check out his blog and see what this guy had to say and am I glad to have done that. While every Iraqi blogger was ecstatic about the elections and being able to vote, this guy has been screaming his head off about how bad and illegitimate the election is. Check it out: The cowardly and corrupt bush administration, working along with the dirty allow(ie) government is coercing Iraqis to vote. The allow(ie) puppets are threatening Iraqis who don't vote that they will not get their monthly food rations. Nevermind that what he is talking about is an actual rumor by his own admission, but sure, lets humor him and hear what he has to say anyway. Love the allow(ie) thing by the way. Very inventive, very clever. Oh lala! The bush gang can do anything to reach to their goals. I mean ANYTHING. Since their goals are spreading democracy in iraq and the middle-east, ehh, I am glad they are that determined and motivated. It is well known all over Iraq now that if you didn't go to vote, the government will cut your monthly food rations. EVERYONE is talking about this, and EVERYONE believes it too!!! and this is one of the main reasons of why millions of poor and destroyed Iraqis were dragged out of their homes today and sent to election centers in the middle of explosions and bullets. They don't give a damn about elections, they want food. Millions of Iraqis don't have the possibility of testing whether this rumor is true or false, this is about surviving. They are ready to put their lives in danger to go get their monthly food rations. So let me get this straight. You have decided that all of those people who went and voted, didn’t do it because they wanted democracy, but because they were afraid of losing their food rations? Man, Jeff is right. You are scum. What about those who danced on the street? What about the woman crying in that picture you posted on top of that post, when you know it was from a story where she was expressing her joy for voting? How is it that you can lie with such a straight face when you know your lies can be found out so easily? Okay, let’s humor you for a second and say that it is true, that people really did go and vote not because they wanted to, but because they heard a “rumor” that if they didn’t they wouldn’t get food. Let’s assume all that. Now, here is my question: why is that a bad thing? I am sorry, but I am a libertarian and that implies being a pragmatist by definition. Those people –by your own admission- were too afraid to go out and vote because of all the bombings and the shooting (done by terrorists) that was designed to keep them too scared to go out and vote, thus not legitimizing the iraqi elections and give out the illusion that the resistance speaks for the Iraqi street. They were so afraid, you said, that even Al Sistani’s fatwa couldn’t have gotten them out and only this rumor made them gather enough strength and courage to go and vote. You cry foul, while I am thinking “ the guy who thought of that rumor idea deserves a medal”. He was able to get them to conquer their fear and go vote Raed. He motivated them in an ingenious and pragmatic way to get over their fear and go and vote. Why is that bad again? Run that logic by me one more time please, cause I wanna understand it. You remind me of this other dude that I was reading yesterday, who was going on and on how this election is illegitimate cause it is done under occupation. So following that same logic, Abu Mazen’s victory is illegitimate as well? Last I checked where he was campaigning it’s called the “occupied territories”. That must make him an illegitimate Palestinian president then. That makes perfect sense. Or doesn’t. whatever On a side note, don’t u think it’s kinda sad that the only 2 countries that actually do have democratic elections are Iraq and Palestine? Hmm… Raed, Habibi. You are on my shitlist forever. You can’t handle reality and you have no respect for the Iraqi people or their hopes and dreams, not to mention freedom. You actually called Saddam Hussein the “national leader” of Iraq at some point. You, my friend, disgust me! I am glad that the brave Iraqis ignored you and went and voted anyway. You are only happy when Iraqis are oppressed, so go rot in hell you saddam-loving scum. IRAQ IS FREE NO THANKS TO YOU! Now, in the words of Dick Cheney, I say with all the love in my heart to you: Go Fuck yourself!

Scorching once again. You are killing me with your commentary. Everybody knows that the Jarrars were on the higher end of the food chain during Saddam's reign and they are bitter people for losing that position.

Well, everyone with a brain knows it. I know a number of left leaning people who point to their blog and talk about them as if they represent a majority of Iraqis when there are at least 30 pro democracy blogs that say differently. Just on blogs alone, as an unscientific but telling statistic, there are at least 25 who outright spit on Saddam and people like the Jarrars and 4 or so who are ambivelent about the occupation (love and hate). Then there are the four jarrar blogs. I think that speaks for itself.

Raed and Majid, like all young adults there age experiencing a traumatic change or moment are suffering from some severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The younger one Khalid, shows some signs of it but was young enough that he could bounce back.

I'm afraid Raed and Majid will probably not end up in a good way like many young men who have come before them.

That's my serious note on the subject.

ON the lighter side, the guy is seriously cracked. I do wonder if he was actually a member of the old Information Ministry because his lies are so easily disputed but he says them as if they really are true in his own mind. He is the epitome of Goebbels. He has told himself the lie so often that he now believes it.

WE all know what happened to Goebbels. In the end, he could not live with his fantasy coming to an end and he killed himself and his family.

Mamma Jarrar should look out for him.

I heard yesterday that the most recent democratic elections in Muslim countries have all occurred under occupation Iraq, Palestine & Afghanistan. Now let's examine who these occupiers are- America, Israel & America. Damn the Americans & Jews for forcing democracy on immature Muslim societies . Who do they think they are do-gooders.

Sandmonkey, I think that is Raed's problem, he is already blind from fist pounding. The green hair on his palms SHOULD have given him the first warning.

Quick question

Can't seem to understand this election.

SandMonkey, I have a theory. Perhaps with the outright lies that Raed tells so easily and with a straight face is telling of his actual father. No, no. Not the one he claims. Not the one that helps support him.

I am thinking of Baghdad Bob, information minister for Saddam. You know the guy.

"There are no American soldiers in Bag....uuumm...you...yes you with the Large Abrams tank...can you shut that down a moment? We are doing an interview here...Thank you...What? What Palace? Saddams Palace? I have never heard of this Saddam. I must go now."

Yeah. That guy is Raeds real dad.

TO 1:12 PM, Anonymous : Nope, not blogging from Texas, altough i love Austin. Cairo Egypt man. Born and raised!

To Kat: don;t forget that they were half palestinian, and the palestinians did enjoy a special status under saddam's rule. They were treated so excpetionally well and so much better then the iraqis that a lot of iraqis turned on them the moment Saddam died. I am all for him moving to Iran though, you know, with his nikki. I am sure his father will continue to support him anyway.

To At 8:18 PM, Anonymous: check out http://themiddleground.blogspot.com/2005/01/iraq-elections-questions-and-answers.html . That should clear out any confusion you may have had.

Kender, now you reminded me of Baghdad Bob. I miss Baghdad Bob. He was so funny. Whatever happend to him?

As for him being Raed's dad, well, this may be true, but with one minor difference. Lying was Baghdad Bob's job, Raed does it as a hobby. Baghdad Bob stopped the bullshit the moment americans stepped foot in and the iraqis lost,cause he no longer had a job. Raed continues lying to this day. I fear for the boy's mental health. you know?

Thank you Ayatollah Jeffery. Your efforts have been most pleasing. check out that hit counter. i put it up on the 26th of january.

Sure not gonna forget your efforts in pimping this sandmonkey when i get that Book deal! ;)

And, you may not be completely aware of this, but he's (Raed) not even IN Iraq. He's been in Amman, Jordan studying for nearly a year now. His mother, she's in Amman too, and has been for nearly a month. His younger brother? Oh, he's in Canada, also studying.

So, where is he getting his information from? Jordanian rumormill? Al-Jazeera? Certainly not any Iraqi blogs.. why? They're all HAPPY for the elections. Proud of themselves and their brother's and sisters who voted.

Pfft.. his blog is irrelevent to anything going on outside of his own confused and twisted head.

A book deal? Now that would be a bestseller.

I am not sure i am that good Louise, altough thanks for the kind words anyway. Flattery will take you everywhere with me!

Hmm.. and now this from Raed's brother.. I guess insanity runs in the Jarrar family.


He can't be serious... can he?

Confortablement assis, te gavant de donuts et de cnn, tu te permets de porter un jugement, pauvre de toi, je te plains. L'histoire a donné raison à Raed : l'après élection, qu'en penses-tu tronche de cake ?
