Iraq Calls on Arabs to "Use Oil as Weapon"

By John Lee.

Reuters reports that Iraq's representative to the Arab League said that Arab states should use oil as a weapon to put pressure on the United States and Israel over the attacks on Gaza.

Qais al-Azzawy told reporters in Cairo on Friday:

"Iraq will invite (Arab) ministers to use the weapon of oil, with the aim of asserting real pressure on the United States and whoever stands with Israel.

"The economic weapon is the strongest one to be put into effect now, to assure of standing by the Palestinian people, in light of there being no military power that can stand in the face of Israel at the present time."

    No one called for your help, if you remember, the us illegally invaded Iraq!!!

    No one hates for no reason having assumed that you're correct in your ''hate'' assumptions, and if you believe that, then you have no reason sir.

    Things are deeper than hate and love. the key is; read into history 🙂
