At FrontPage Magazine, Dr. Walid Phares imagines how two Iraqi citizens would react to the American antiwar movement
. Here's a sample:
Majid: I don’t know. But one of their activists, Cindy Sheehan, lost her son in Iraq and is leading the campaign against President Bush now.
Hassan: Was she against his decision to join the armed forces?
Majid: Apparently yes. That’s what she says.
Hassan: Did she try to convince him not to enroll?
Majid: Yes, that’s what she said.
Hassan: So, her son refused to obey her
Hassan: He disagreed with her?
Hassan: So he had different views than she did?
Majid: Well, he joined the Army, and she didn’t want him to join.
Hassan: Was she against the War in Iraq before he joined?
Majid: She was against the removal of Saddam.
Hassan: And now she is acting as a mother who lost her child who refused to obey her and was killed in a war she opposed?
Majid: Exactly. She considers the war that liberated us a war that killed her son. She was against regime change in Iraq. I also heard she criticized Bush, Chirac, and Blair for removing the Syrians from Lebanon.
Hassan: Why is she against our peoples’ freedoms?
Majid: She says removing Saddam wasn’t a good cause.
Hassan: Did she ever meet with Iraqi mothers who lost their children, husbands, and babies?
Majid: Not that I know of.
Hassan: So stopping the genocide in Iraq is not enough of a noble cause for her?
Majid: She and her movement say no.
