Baghdad today – Baghdad
Today, Saturday, a Reuters news agency report described the supreme religious authority in Najaf, Ali al-Sistani, as the “strongest man” in Iraq, noting that his “position” behind the scenes prevented the outbreak of a civil war in the country.
A Reuters report, seen by (Baghdad Today), stated that “when an announcement by a cleric pushed Iraq to the brink of civil war last week, only one man had the ability to prevent it: the Iraqi Shiite cleric, Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani ( 92, who once again proved to be the strongest man in his country .”

He continued, “Sistani did not issue a public comment regarding the unrest that erupted in the streets of Iraq. However, government officials and informed Shiite sources say that only Sistani’s behind-the-scenes position defused the disaster .”
And the report stated, “The events of the bloodiest week in Iraq in nearly three years show the limits of traditional politics in a country where the power to start and stop wars lies in the hands of clerics, many of whom have ambiguous ties to Iran, the neighboring Shiite power . “
Iraqis who took to the streets blamed Tehran for fueling the violence, which began after an Iranian-based cleric denounced the popular Iraqi cleric Moqtada al-Sadr and instructed his followers, including Sadr himself, to obey the order of Iran’s supreme leader .
Sadr’s followers tried to storm government buildings. By nightfall they were driving around Baghdad in pickup trucks brandishing machine guns and rocket launchers .

According to a Reuters report, “Gunmen believed to be members of a pro-Iranian armed faction opened fire on stone-throwing Sadrist protesters. At least 30 people were killed . “
Then, within 24 hours, it ended as suddenly as it began. Al-Sadr appeared on television and called for calm. His armed supporters and unarmed followers began leaving the streets, the army lifted a night-time curfew and a fragile calm fell over the capital .
In an effort to understand how the unrest erupted and how it was quelled, Reuters spoke with approximately 20 officials from the Iraqi government, Sadr’s movement, and rival Shiite factions seen as pro-Iran. Most spoke on the condition of anonymity .
All interviews indicated, according to Reuters, “a decisive behind-the-scenes intervention by Sistani, who has never held an official political position in Iraq, but is considered the most influential cleric in Najaf, the Shiite religious center in Iraq

, Saturday, the economist, Nabil Jaafar Al-Marsoumi, revealed frightening figures for the central bank’s dollar sales for the month of August, while the bank sold five billion five hundred and thirty million dollars, which is the largest in the history of Iraq.

He added that “when the amounts of opening documents for imports amount to four billion six hundred and ninety-six million dollars, imports of goods and services must be offset by the same amounts, but what is happening is different, and the evidence is that last year the private sector recorded import of goods and others with an amount that reached 11 billion dollars, while it was The bank’s document sales amounted to $33 billion,” he added, adding: “This means that an amount of up to 20 billion was bought with goods and entered through illegal outlets or from the Kurdistan region.”

Shafaq News / The US Ambassador to Baghdad, Elena Romanowski, spoke on Saturday about the climate crisis and its change in Iraq, pointing out that scorching temperatures, severe sandstorms and continuous drought have become prevalent conditions that negatively affect aspects of the daily lives of millions of Iraqis.

In her speech regarding the climate crisis in Iraq, Romanowski said that “the impact of human-caused greenhouse gas emissions is not limited to changing the landscape only, nor is it just a problem related to the future alone.”

“Failure to take immediate action by governments around the world – including the Iraqi government – will accelerate these changes, which will turn entire areas within the region that was once called (the Fertile Crescent), uninhabitable for generations,” she added. coming”.

The US ambassador stated, “The United States is committed to taking meaningful action in the global response to climate change, as President (Biden) this month signed a historic legislative act that guarantees the largest investment ever to address the climate crisis, an investment of $369 billion.” It would significantly improve energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.”

She pointed out that “the scope of this international commitment extends to helping the Iraqi government to address the climate change crisis,” stressing that her country “has provided Iraq, through the United States Agency for International Development, with support that included funding and technical expertise, as well as the necessary systems to help it face future challenges.”

And she indicated that the support included “improving Iraq’s ability to manage the issue of water and helping to expand access to this vital resource for more than ten million Iraqis, as well as joining Iraqi business institutions, schools and local government institutions starting from Nineveh to Basra in an effort to increase public awareness about effects of climate change”.

“We have supported the Iraqi government to develop a five-year climate strategy aimed at improving communication with farmers about climate forecasts, reducing damage to crops and soil, as well as protecting Iraq’s food supply from threats posed by increasingly unstable weather,” Romanowski said.

The US ambassador expressed her pride in her country’s efforts to “build bridges of communication between Iraqis and Americans, in order to draw inspiration from the experiences of the two countries, as they both face the challenges of climate change.”

Two weeks ago, more than two dozen Iraqi officials returned after concluding a visit to locations across the United States, where they met with hydrologists and other experts and learned about how the United States is adapting to climate change.

And she added, “Fortunately, the Iraqi government has joined the global efforts aimed at reducing emissions and switching to renewable energy, as well as adopting smart climate practices,” noting that “with the Iraqi government’s accession to the (Paris Agreement) in 2021, it has thus set a goal Reducing emissions by (1) to (2)% as part of the first Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC).

Iraq, according to Romanowski, has joined the Global Methane Pledge, and while the United States is making these historic commitments, it is now essential for Iraq to begin taking the necessary measures to meet those commitments.

The US ambassador urged Iraq’s leaders to “take advantage of the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 27), to be held later this year in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, to reconsider and enhance Iraq’s INDCs as well as investment decisively in the technological and investment field necessary to achieve the stated goals.

And she considered that “the issue of reducing emissions in Iraq may seem difficult, as the economic pressure to obtain the most carbon-free energy is a material reality, and perhaps in the Middle East more than anywhere else, but this goal remains within reach and the current conditions have advantages that are not yet available. It was previously unimaginable to some.”
