Facebook activists carried out a social media attack on Qais al-Khazali, leader of the Shiite militia Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq, asserting that Iraq is not independent anymore because of him and Iran's agents.
"Kirkuk is part of Iraq," Khazali posted on the social networking site Twitter.
The Iranian influence in Iraq is now very sizable due to the likes of Khazali, Hadi al-Amiri, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, and the rest of Iran's young and old agents.
They questioned who would judge Khazali and his militia for their crimes of killing, kidnapping and extortion, as well as smuggling iron from Mosul to Iran, dismantling the Baiji oil refinery and smuggling it to Iran.
The activists demanded the dismantling of Iran's militias, particularly Khazali's Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq, adding that militia crimes have gone on for too long and can no longer be tolerated.
The militia, through its criminal actions on the Iraqi scene, has become an imminent danger that must be confronted with firmness, they added.
The users cited Muqtada al-Sadr's statement about Khazali in which he said that Iran spends $5 million per month on him and his militia Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq.
Sadr said that Khazali belongs to a family in the long-time employment of the security services, adding that the latter's father, who was a former policeman-turned-cleric, approached Sadr's father as the intelligence's eye watching him.
Because of his strong and old relationship with Nouri al-Maliki, the Al-Ubeib tried to claim they were leaving armed operations to join the political process in Iraq in 2011, but they soon resumed military operations in Baghdad and elsewhere.
The Baghdad Post monitored Facebook users' reactions to Khazali's statement, with one user, Reden Akam, saying: "They are originally agents of Iran and were living there."
