Iraqi Resistance Report For July 30 2005
By Muhammad Abu Nasr, Free Arab Voice
Resistance shoots down US helicopter near Jordanian border early Saturday.
In a report posted at 12:35pm Mecca time Saturday, Mafkarat al-Islam
reported that Iraqi Resistance forces shot down a US helicopter over
the sheep market area of the Iraqi city of ar-Rutbah, which lies near
the Jordanian border, on Saturday.
The ar-Rutbah correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported witnesses
as saying that the Resistance fired a rocket at the helicopter causing
it to fall to the ground and crash. Sources in the puppet Iraqi border
guards confirmed that an American helicopter had been shot down and
its crew killed.
The correspondent reported that at the time of writing US forces were
still surrounding the citys commercial area, having sealed all roads
to and from the area since 6am in an effort to keep journalists and
local people away from the crash site.
Religious leaders order parents, guardians not to let children out
unsupervised for fear of American molestation or abuse as human
The Council of Islamic Legal Rulings in al-Anbar Province issued a
ruling that was posted on mosques in the area forbidding parents to
allow their children into the street alone from today onward. The
Islamic religious authority said that parents could let their children
out only if they exercise supervision over them or allow them out near
the doors of their houses so that they would be able to run home
before US troops can approach them.
The Mafkarat al-Islam correspondent in ar-Ramadi reported that the
Council issued its statement in response to the growing number of
incidents of ***ual attacks on children in rural areas, particularly
by US soldiers.
US forces have also used Iraqi children as human shields to protect
them from Resistance attacks when they invade towns and villages a
practice that has dramatically increased lately in the cities of
ar-Ramadi, Hit, al-Khalidiyah, and al-Qaim.
The correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam in Mosul, meanwhile, reported
that the Mufti (Islamic Jurisconsult) for the city issued the same
ruling Friday night.
Among Iraqs Shii population, the preacher representing the Muqtada
as-Sadr movement, Shaykh Muhammad Husayn al-Amidi, made the same call
in his Friday sermon. Shaykh al-Amidi said: it is shocking and
shameful that the occupation forces are taking the children of Iraq as
easy playthings and use them as human shields to ward off the blows of
Shaykh al-Amidi went on: we call on guardians of children not to send
their children out of the house if they want to protect them. The
massacre in Baghdad al-Jadidah should be a sufficient example for
guardians of what can happen otherwise to children.
The same has happened in Diyala Province, northeast of Baghdad, where
numerous religious leaders held an emergency meeting of directors of
schools and kindergartens and parents and told them not to let the
children in their care out into the street for fear that they would be
used as human shields or be molested by US soldiers.
In Baghdad the puppet so-called ministry of human rights confirmed
that there were at least 17 cases of ***ual molestation of children
coming home from school by occupation soldiers in June. The puppet
ministry said that seven of the victims were little girls between the
ages of eight and ten. The source in the puppet ministry refused to
specify the locations where the attacks occurred, saying only that
they were in the east and south of Baghdad. Mafkarat al-Islam
published similar reports more than two months ago concerning US
soldiers molesting Iraqi children and using them as human shields.
