"Dr. al Dhari said in an interview with al Haq Agency: “the AMSI
has adopted a fatwa prohibiting the Status of Forces Agreement...
because...its origin is baseless, it is agreement between strong
and weak, between the occupier and the [pretended] representa-
tives of the occupied people, [who have been] destroyed by the
occupying power,
`
[and] because so-called representatives do indeed not represent
legitimately the Iraqi people; in contrast they were elected [in]
fraudulent and counterfeit elections formed and supervised by the
occupation.” 
`
"the occupiers will leave, therefore we consider the approval of
this agreement and signature on it by any party will be consider-
ed as treason and illegal because this agreement is coercive and
humiliating.”

DPRK's View on Information and Communication Expressed
`
DPRK delegate spoke at meeting of Fourth Committee of
63rd UN General Assembly on October 21st: 
`
"He accused some specified countries of
`
spreading their 'view on value' [= their ideology] and
lifestyle among other countries [>] after monopolizing
information and communication media
`
and [accused them of]
`
floating misinformation to create social confusion.
`
He went on to say: The U.S. 'Radio Free Asia' targeting
...the DPRK and many other Asian countries...is a wanton
violation of the UN Charter and the principle of inter-
national law.  If such phenomena are allowed to go on,
the world will plunge into disorder and confusion.
`
He stressed the need to regard it as a primary task
`
to establish a new and fair order in the international
information activities
`
and [to]
`
pay special attention to increasing the capacity of in-
formation and communication in developing countries."

Simon Jenkins | My farewell plea to MPs: defend liberty
`
"In all my years of writing this column, from which I am
standing down, I have been amazed at the spinelessness of
Britain’s elected representatives in defending liberty and
protesting against state arrogance.  They appear as parties
to the conspiracy of power.  There have been outspoken judges,
outspoken peers, even outspoken journalists.  There have been
few outspoken MPs.  Those supposedly defending freedom are
whipped into obedience. I find this ominous."

few months to the level [of] what it was"
`
"al Sahwa Councils helped the occupation...and contributed to
obstruct the resistance by 50% to 60%, but eventually the [col-

army, and neglected by the [puppet] government in Iraq."

"the sectarian conflict will not return to Iraq, and it was not
in fact 'sectarian conflict' between Sunnis and Shiites, 'but
it was in reality political fighting and strife behind...which
there are the ruling [puppet] political parties.'" 
`
"The opposition [to] the occupation and sectarian government in
Iraq includes all Iraqis; Sunni, Shia and others.  The [puppet]
government does not represent anybody only political parties
and groups associated with the presence...of the occupation and
foreign enterprises."
`
"[F]oreign enterprises" may encompass Iran.
