Iraq’s PM Abdel-Mahdi resigns after scores of protesters shot dead

After 40 anti-government protesters were shot dead in 24 hours of bloodshed, Iraq’s prime minister Adel Abdel-Mahdi on Saturday tendered his resignation to Parliament. The violence escalated in Nasiriya, Najaf and Baghdad after demonstrators burned the Iranian consulate in Najef and blocked key bridges in another southern Shiite town of Nasiriya. Abdel Mahdi stepped down after Iraq’s senior cleric Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani called for a change of leadership.

    America must have it’s change for getting rid of Netanyahu and his Neocon minions for their crimes against America

    Netanyahu’s crimes against America – by ordering the Joel Zamel/PsyGroup overthrow of the 2016 election, as well as the encryption/conspiracy with Jared Kushner over UN 2334, must be made commonly known in America so America can have it’s chance to administer justice to Kushner and Netanyahu

    It’s part of the healing process and integrity of the American process to get rid of Netanyahu for his crimes against America. The only way to get the Neocons is to get Netanyahu and take them down together

      The only reason Hillary didn’t complain about the PsyGroup operation against her and the Israeli interference/meddling in the 2016 which COST her the election is she would have to expose Netanyahu and Israelis to do it and that is her biggest taboo
