Sectarian murder spree continues : three tortured bodies recovered in Bagdad thursday
In a dispatch posted at 8:20pm Baghdad time Thursday night, the Yaqen News Agency reported that the Iraqi puppet police recovered the bodies of three more victims of sectarian violence that had been dumped in various parts of Baghdad Thursday evening.
Yaqen reported a source in the puppet police as saying that two of the bodies were found in the western Baghdad area of al-Karakh and one in east Baghdad’s ar-Rusafah.  All the bodies showed signs of torture and had been shot in the head and chest.
The Shi‘i sectarian militias are pressing ahead with sectarian abductions, torture, and murder of Sunnis in an effort to “cleanse” Baghdad and vast swaths of Iraqi territory to the south and east of Sunnis.   The bloody sectarian campaign is aimed at implementation of plans to partition Iraq drawn up by Zionist and American think tanks.
The idea of “the dissolution of Iraq into a Shi‘ite state, a Sunni state and the separation of the Kurdish part” was voiced by veteran Zionist military correspondent Ze’ev Schiff in Ha'aretz on2 June 1982 and was a part of the divide-and-rule strategy laid out by Zionist writer Oded Yinon in his “Strategy for Israel in the 1980s,” published in Kivunim (Directions), A Journal for Judaism and Zionism, published by the World Zionist Organization in occupied Jerusalem in February 1982.  (It was translated by the late anti-Zionist writer and activist Israel Shahak and is widely available.)
The idea of splitting the Shi‘ah in Iraq from the rest of the country was a cornerstone of the neo-Conservative strategy laid out in “A Clean Break” a paper drawn up by American Zionist government officials Richard Perle, Douglas Feith, David Wurmser, and Paul Wolfowitz in 1996 for the then Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.  Then in 2000 the neo-Conservative Project for a New American Century wrote Rebuilding America’s Defenses on the basis of the “Clean Break.”
The American version of the strategy for a partition of Iraq appeared in the article “The Three-State Solution” published in The New York Times on 25 November 2003 by Leslie Gelb (President Emeritus of the US Council on Foreign Relations).  The same idea was reiterated, this time with “bi-partisan support” in the article by Gelb and US Democratic Senator Joseph Biden in “Unity through Autonomy in Iraq,” in The New York Times on 1 May 2006.
Then on 8 October 2006 the London Sunday Times reported that the partition of Iraq along religious and ethnic lines was one of the suggestions that the Baker-Hamilton commission was advancing.

US forces face fighting between rival pro-american factions
In a dispatch posted at 6:10pm Baghdad time Thursday evening, the Yaqen News Agency reported that the fighting that raged between the puppet “Iraqi National Guard” and the collaborationist Sunni “Awakening” forces in the area of the Abu Hanifah Mosque in Baghdad’s al-A‘zamiyah district on Wednesday night eventually required the direct intervention of US Rapid Deployment Forces.
Yaqen reported that an American helicopter was observed flying at very low altitude over the area where the fighting was taking place between the rival pro-American elements – the Shi‘i puppet “National Guards” and the Sunni collaborators.
The fighting later spilled over into neighboring areas when armed men attacked a US patrol in the as-Salikh area near al-A‘zamiyah on Thursday morning.  Two men in the patrol were reported killed and the entire district was sealed off.  US forces then began raids of houses in the area.

In a dispatch posted at 10:15am Baghdad time Thursday morning, the Yaqen News Agency reported that a plastic bomb exploded by the car carrying Falah Hasan Shanshal, a deputy in the puppet “Iraqi Parliament,” early Thursday morning.

In a dispatch posted at 1:38pm Baghdad time Thursday afternoon, the Yaqen News Agency reported that US Special Forces staged an airborne landing on the ar-Rahmah neighborhood to the north of the city of an-Najaf at 3am local time Thursday morning.
Yaqen reported a source in the puppet police in an-Najaf as saying that the Americans carried out raids in the area in the course of which they killed two people, wounded three more and arrested 13 local residents.  All those arrested were “suspected” of membership in the Shi‘i sectarian pro-Iranian Jaysh al-Mahdi militia.
Yaqen noted that the ar-Rahmah neighborhood was only recently established as an area for “spill over” population and that most of its residents are poor families.
Later on Thursday morning, the sound of a loud explosion was heard to the south of the area.  The blast was reportedly the sound of US forces blowing up a cache of ammunition and explosives that they had found after some of their captives had disclosed its location under interrogation.
