Anti-Election Artwork, Produced by Iraqi Nationalist-Religious Insurgent Groups

"A number of (political) lists, one parent....Iranians to the Bone"

"Do not elect Iran"

"(Ahmad) Chalabi...'Spreader of Crime'...First Engineer of Iraq's Destruction", with an Iranian flag at the bottom

"No (to) Iraqi Elections because....."

"Yes to the election boycott...We will not give legitimacy to the racist foundation/system"

The 1920 Revolution Brigades, an Iraqi religious-nationalist insurgent group, condemns Baha al-'Araji, a member of Tayyar al-Sadr's (Sadr Movement) parliamentary bloc, who said that Sunni Muslims had been plotting against Shi'i Muslims in Iraq from the days of the first Rashidun (Rightly-guided) caliph/successor to the Prophet Muhammad, as recognized by Sunnis, Abu Bakr al-Siddiq to the days of Ahmad Hasan al-Bakr, one of the leaders of Iraq's 1968 coup by the Iraqi Ba'th Party. Abu Bakr is revered by Sunnis and reviled and sometimes cursed by Shi'is. The poster reiterates the 1920 Revolution Brigades' support for the four Rashidun caliphs: Abu Bakr, 'Umar ibn al-Khattab, 'Uthman ibn 'Affan, and 'Ali ibn Abi Talib.

"Enemy of my Enemy is my Friend," the United States and Iran in partnership
