Update on Iraqi Politics
Jun 17, 2014
On April 30, 2014 elections were held in Iraq. The votes were supposed to be validated by their Supreme Court by June 1st and the new government formally seated on June 14. The first session of Parliament is scheduled for June 30.
It is being reported that on Monday (two days late) the Iraqi Supreme Court validated all but four of the new MP’s.
It is a virtual certainty that the old Prime Minister al-Maliki will not be elected to a third term, even though his party won the most votes. Few, if any, of the other parties would support him, because he violated nearly all of the previous agreements that he made with other parties in the past four years. No one trusts him to keep his word, so his only option is bribery, with money delivered up front.
The crisis with ISIS (or ISIL) may well be just another false flag event, as Lord Maginnis suggests in an article by the Huffington Post.
I think that it was indeed a false flag event, but the question is who is behind it? Who are supporting ISIS? Why were they the best funded terrorists in the world, even before they stole 500 billion dinars from the bank in Mosul?
I cannot prove anything, but I think time will prove that they are being funded by Saudi Arabia and/or Qatar, which, for the past few years, have been funding the Islamist groups fighting the Assad regime in Syria. ISIS marched into Iraq from Syria.
If this is so, then it is unlikely that al-Maliki himself organized this terrorist invasion, because a Shiite like Maliki would hardly fund or support a Sunni-led invasion that is controlled by Saudi Arabia. There is no doubt, however, that Maliki used this invasion to try to retain power. It is said that he ordered his army officers in Mosul to lay down their arms and flee, even though they outnumbered ISIS forces 40:1.
He then called for a special session of Parliament in order to ask them to grant him emergency powers. But not enough Parliamentarians showed up to have a quorum, so that tactic failed. It seems that Maliki’s party is the only party that does not mind if Maliki is given dictatorial powers. Everyone else knows that once he became a dictator, his state of emergency would never end, and the people would be stuck with him forever, as with Saddam Hussein.
It is probable that Maliki’s actions finally made it clear to his US supporters that he had outlived his usefulness.
There are now reports that Maliki will be replaced by Chalabi as the party head. Chalabi was the darling of the Bush administration, though he fell out of favor when it became clear that Chalabi lied about Saddam having weapons of mass destruction in order to induce the US to invade Iraq. It appears that Chalabi is now back in favor with the Obama administration as the best alternative to Maliki. Perhaps they are holding their noses as they vote to support him.
If Chalabi is returning to power, other parties may be willing to support him as Prime Minister. Here is an NBC news clip that says Chalabi now enjoys the support of the neo-conservatives in America who got us into the Iraq war in the first place.
It appears that ISIS is entrenching itself into the Sunni territory in the midsection of the country, driving a huge wedge that will ultimately split the nation into three parts. Even news reports on the mainstream media now openly ask questions about the three-way split. But ISIS forces are far too small to overthrow either the Kurds to the north or the Shiites to the south.
In my view, a three-way split is the final event to occur. The first should be the revaluation of the Iraqi dinar somewhere near its pre-war level of $3.22. The second should be the downfall of Maliki (“king”), either a political death or a physical one. So when we see such dramatic events splitting the country, coupled with elections where Maliki is likely to be ousted from his position as Prime Minister, I see these as signs of the soon revaluation of the dinar. Others see these as signs of disaster, because they are only watching earthly events. We, however, are watching what God is doing.
While I do not know when this might happen, I see some potential dates to watch. The first is June 19, on account of the events from our primary parallel year, 2001. This was the day the “marriage proposal” was presented to America, with the promise of a dowry that our Heavenly Father was to give to the guardians of the Bride. In 2001 I saw this dowry in terms of silver, but in 2014 it may actually be in terms of the Iraqi dinar.
It does not seem likely to me that the Central Bank of Iraq would revalue the currency before the new parliament is seated June 30. So I think that July 9-15 is a more likely time for this, if it is going to happen soon.
The second date to watch is July 9-15, on account of the events occurring on those dates in 2010. We were led to throw barley into the headwaters of the Mississippi River on July 9, 2010. So it is a “barley” date, which speaks prophetically into the 9th sign of Elisha in 2 Kings 4:42-44. If you are unfamiliar with my earlier writings, I suggest that you go back to the weblog archives and read the accounts in question. Here is one from 2011:
