Al-Hayat columnist calls for the ‘prosecution and execution’ of Bush, Cheney; compares to Nazis

On the 10th anniversary of the US invasion of Iraq, a columnist for the London daily Al-Hayat calls for the “prosecution and execution” of former US President George W. Bush and VP Dick Cheney for “fabricating evidence to justify the war in Iraq”, according to a Middle East Media Research Institute report March 28.

Jihad Al-Khazen wrote in the Al-Hayat, “On this day, 10 years ago, the United States invaded Iraq. The administration of George W. Bush committed a war crime, but none of those involved in fabricating evidence to justify the war that they planned and implemented have been held accountable. This is despite the fact that their war has led to the death of one million Arabs and Muslims, along with 5,000 of America’s prime in Iraq alone; furthermore, the killing there is ongoing.”

Al-Khazen compares the actions of the Bush administration to the Nazis, stating that the crimes of these leaders are “almost as heinous as those of the Nazis,” he said that if there were any justice in the world, they would have been detained in a “Nazi-like concentration camp.”

Al-Khazen includes in his column a list of those who should stand trial. This includes several in the administration–former defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld, and officials such as Elliott Abrams, Douglas Feith, and John Bolton.

He also calls out the “instigators”, which includes a lengthy list of prominent neoconservatives who pushed for aggressive military action against Iraq as far back as the Clinton administration, particularly as part of the now defunct Project for the New American Century (PNAC)– William Kristol, Richard Perle, Michael Ledeen, Frank Gaffney, Reuel Marc Gerecht, Charles Krauthammer, and Alan Dershowitz.

Perle recently said in a NPR interview concerning the evidence used to go into Iraq, “It’s easy a decade later to say, well, it turned out this fact or that presumption was wrong.”

Al-Khazen says this was all part of a master plan, “Today, Iraq is an Iranian colony. There is a sectarian regime in power and daily terrorism where Muslims are killed at the hands of other Muslims. This is no coincidence, but the result of an old plan…

“The neoconservatives have always sought to create sedition between Muslims, and they specifically tried to build a U.S.-Shi’a alliance against the Sunni majority in the world and the Arab countries. The Americans establish relations with the Arabs reluctantly, and hate Iran reluctantly. They believe that supporting a minority that represents ten percent of Muslims is sufficient to distract Muslims through infighting, and help Israel dominate the resources of the Middle East.”

“These people are all war criminals, and there is conclusive evidence against them, gathered by U.S. intellectuals, former officials, and researchers. All that is needed is [the] international will to put them on trial, as they deserve.”

    I WILL ALWAYS BE LOYAL TO The Bush Family; IF IT HAD NOT BEEN FOR The Bushes, I WOULD HAVE NO INTEREST IN POLITICS.

    I WISH CAUCASIANS (WHO ARE NOT, HEBREW) WOULD SET THE RECORD “STRAIGHT” ON HOW PEOPLE REALLY FEEL ABOUT The Nazis. OF COURSE, CAUCASIANS SHOULD ADMIRE THE NORDIC TRADITION – IT IS THEIR HERITAGE. AS A MUSICIAN I KNOW Adolf Hitler WAS A GREAT FAN OF THE COMPOSER, Richard Wagner, WHO WROTE PHENOMENAL MUSIC.

    MY POINT IS, RACIAL PRIDE AND CULTURAL PRIDE ARE SO INTIMATELY INTERTWINED THAT “BAD-MOUTHING” Nazis SEEMS SILLY. WHO CARES ABOUT THE “holocaust” IN 2013?
