Qais al-Khazali, the leader of the Shiite terrorist militia Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq met on Thursday with German Ambassador to Iraq Cyrill Nunn, where he affirmed supporting activating investments in Iraq through German companies.
During the meeting, Khazali was keen to appease the German side by defending the pro-Iran IMIS. He asserted that the IMIS has been "subjected to a huge, unjust, systematic media campaign that tries to distort its image in the world, although it (IMIS) fought on behalf of the world."
Observers argue that more than 67 militias in Iraq receive billions of dollars every year from Iran and from the Iraqi fiscal budget as well.
In December, Khazali condemned US President Donald Trump's visit to Iraq, threatening to expel the US troops from Iraq either by law or by another method.
What's the deal?
So why is the German ambassador, the official representative of the German state in Iraq, meeting with an internationally-recognized terrorist leader who is subservient to Iran and is not an official representative of the Iraqi state?
Khazali has no official Iraqi title or position, and his credentials include killing and displacing hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis, so what reason could Germany possibly have for sitting with him as though he speaks for Iraq!?
Iran has been interfering in Iraq's internal affairs and causing chaos for years through its militias like Khazali's Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq. Is Germany now accepting Iran and its henchmen as the de facto authority in Iraq?
After Germany has spent years trying to change its image after the atrocities committed by Hitler, it is now cozying up with a terrorist who previously went to border with Israel and threatened to destroy it.
If Germany continues to legitimize terrorists as politicians and give credence to Iran's dominance, then it is surely handing Iraq over to destruction and will lose its position on the world stage.
