Sunday morning 1/10/2017, TRT Arabic website reported under the title: “Spanish authorities prevented the referendum of secession in the Spanish province of Catalonia”, stating that Spanish police forces prevented the holding of the independence referendum in the region, which has a population of 7.5 million and enjoys the broadest measure of self-government. Security forces raided polling stations. Police also dispersed civilian pickets in front of the polling stations and confiscated ballot boxes and voting papers. The Spanish Interior Ministry indicated that it would not allow the holding of the “illegal” referendum.
Let the rulers of Iraq know how to manage their country’s affairs and how to preserve their people who are stricken by them. Is not Spain a democratic country, considering the opinion and the other opinion?! But, when its rulers felt the danger, they struck at the principles of the unbridled freedom, and stopped the secession advocates, so they were more assertive than you:
‘The sword in its tidings is truer than words of books … Its edge is the boundary between seriousness and romping.’
Not like the politicians of Iraq who lost it before their enemies, and they appealed to the British agent, Barzani, begging him to revert from his intention to hold the secession referendum, which is forbidden by the Shariah of Allah Almighty, and it was worthy of the leader of the Kurds to be brought bound by chains and iron, to be a lesson to everyone who takes warning. So, neither by the legislation of your Lord you were guided, nor that you followed the legislation of the Kuffar.
فمَا لكُمْ كيفَ تَحْكُمُونَ
“What is [the matter] with you? How do you judge?”
Instead the saying suits you aptly, ‘The one who takes a country without war… easy for him to hand over the country.’
