Dave Iraqi MP Mish’an Al-Jabouri: I Took Millions of Dollars in Bribes, All Iraqi Politicians Do
#5303 | 01:55 Source: Etejah TV (Iraq) In a TV interview, Iraqi MP Mish’an Al-Jabouri admitted that he had taken millions of dollars in bribes. In a January 26 interview with Al-Etejah TV, MP Al-Jabouri claimed that all Iraqi politicians take bribery and that only a coward would not. He claimed that the entire political echelon is corrupt and responsible for the destruction of the country. Al-Jabouri is a member of the Iraqi Commission of Integrity, tasked with investigating governmental corruption. He refused to disclose names of fellow corrupt politicians for fear that “they will kill me right in the street.”
PM Dave nterviewer: “Who is behind the corruption?”
Mish’an Al-Jabouri: “We all are. Everybody plays a role.”
Interviewer: “All of you (politicians)?”
Mish’an Al-Jabouri: “Yes, everybody.”
Interviewer: “How come?”
Mish’an Al-Jabouri: “I am a member of the Commission of Integrity. We open cases, and then close them when we receive bribes. That’s one example.”
my honor, I did. They bribed me to close down a case, but I didn’t. I took several millions of dollars, but I didn’t close the case. I don’t consider it to be a bribe. I see this as conning a corrupt son of a bitch.”
Interviewer: “Who else is corrupt?”
Mish’an Al-Jabouri: “Everybody. Everybody! The Sunnis, the Shiites, and the secularists are all corrupt.”
Interviewer: “The parliament? The government?”
Mish’an Al-Jabouri: “They are all corrupt. If someone is not corrupt, it’s because he is a coward. Either they are corrupt and take bribes, or else they get it in the form of concessions.”
Interviewer: “It’s good to be in government?”
Mish’an Al-Jabouri: “Very good. You get an armored car with an escort, and when you get to a roadblock, you just say: I’m an MP.”
Interviewer: “So you are behind the destruction of this country?”
Mish’an Al-Jabouri: “Of course. The entire political echelon is responsible for this. If there is a homeless man in Iraq, a child who goes to bed without food, or an Iraqi who dies because he has no medicine – the reason is the political echelon in the Green Zone, and the political echelon that manages the various provinces. We all bear responsibility. All of us. We all lie, steal, and take bribes. Anyone who says that he does not take bribes is lying. If I say anything more, they will kill me right in the street.”
Interviewer: “This is an indictment of the entire political echelon.”
Mish’an Al-Jabouri: “By God, the stories I know… If the Iraqis knew these stories, they would storm the Green Zon

butterfly With a televised statement … Al-Abadi: The October demonstrations … represented a clash between the people and the political process
Friday 23, April 2021 23:03 The head of the Nasr Coalition, Haider al-Abadi, said: Iraqis did not see that the 2018 elections represented them, as they were not fair, and the majority participated in it. So happened the October demonstrations, which represented a clash between the people and the political process.
Al-Abadi said in a televised statement tonight: The Electoral Commission in 2018 did not play its rightful role. And the state we are in, because of that mistake. Politicians must leave the conflict; Iraq needs to be rescued from its dangerous situation, and this is a project that I am working on by establishing a middle line that does not lean towards any party or country.
He added that: The victory coalition is a project to overcome sectarianism and ethnicity. Its goal is only the interest of Iraq, not the interests of others who saw it as a threat and made great efforts and huge funds to weaken it.
Al-Abadi explained that: Some countries fear a strong Iraq, and some have worked, since 2018, to weaken their security and economic achievements.
He stressed that: The Popular Mobilization Law relied on the Diwani order that I issued at the time to organize this institution under the framework of the state, and it worked firmly not to allow the fugitive weapons to seize the state, as is happening today in terms of blackmail and encroachment on the situation and public money.
utterfly Al-Abadi added that: During the war against ISIS, I tried to train and organize volunteers and subject them to the military context. They have Hamas and a willingness to sacrifice, and this is the basis of defending Iraq, and it has isolated any political action from the security forces, and it succeeded in all that. But all things are different after 2018, because there are special interests and economic mafias that want to control the popular crowd to implement their ambitions through it. This is evident among many Hashdis who refuse to do so.
And he indicated: To confront the uncontrolled weapon, first it must be understood that these armed men have the perception that the right is with them, and therefore we must warn them about the error of their actions, and then there is a need to isolate the few who have nothing but breaking the law. Without these steps, it means a civil war. We must understand the armed factions and listen to their point of view, even if we do not agree with them. The limit that we cannot accept is the landing of a weapon on the street other than that of the state.
Al-Abadi noted that: Iraqis abroad and the security forces have the right to participate in the elections, and suspicion that the results of their votes will be tampered with will be resolved by establishing a fair electoral system, rather than being prevented from participating.
He stated that: With the start of the October demonstrations and the killing of innocents, the victory coalition was the first to call for the resignation of the government, the formation of a neutral commission, and the holding of early and fair elections.
Al-Abadi stressed: The reduction of the Iraqi dinar exchange rate was categorically rejected during our political meetings. This is beyond the state’s ability to control commodity pricing, which affects people’s livelihood. Instead of that solution, spending could have been reduced, as we did previously.
butterfly Al-Sadr is accused of tweeting some parties disturbing the security in the country
Friday 23, April 2021 23:45 The leader of the Sadrist movement, Muqtada al-Sadr, accused parties of disturbing security in the country for many reasons.
He said in a tweet that: The most important reason is to delay or cancel elections through some unruly militias that target their bombing of the occupying forces to discourage them from withdrawing.
Al-Sadr added that: the survival of the occupying forces is the survival of those militias, or through the placement of Iraq into an external conflict and through linking it to the Syrian-Israeli conflict.
Al-Sadr addressed the proud Iraqi people by saying, “Are we not enough for war, killing, deportation, and bombing? Come to a comprehensive peace with weapons and violence, so that we may live in the confines of our homeland without foreign agendas and without bowing.”
