Okaz Daily- (Saudi Arabia) reported that Hadi Farhan Abdullah al-Ameri, aka “Abi Hassan al-Ameri”, commander of the “Badr Organization” and the “Popular Mobilization Forces”, is directing the relocation of 300,000 from the town of Meqdadiya and housing Iranians there instead.
He lacks any political knowledge or charm, or the main elements needed to become a true politician. The only remaining role for him is a “militia” and one who receives his orders from Tehran. This explains his insistence on appearing with militia uniforms on TV and the media in cities and Sunni areas. Thanks to Iran and Iraq, any and all crimes are now permitted in these regions.
…He carries out any measures he wishes against Arab Sunnis in Diyala and Salahadin provinces, and executes the most horrific crimes and aggressions against them… He was appointed in important posts in the Iraqi government, including minister of transportation & communications under the direct support of [former Iraqi prime minister] Nouri al-Maliki. He enjoys very close relations with senior Revolutionary Guards Quds Force commanders, especially Quds Force chief Qassem Suleimani.
Following the occupation of Iraq he played an important role in implementing IRGC/Quds Force hegemony in Iraq’s security, military and administrative organs.
In 2005 and 2006 he founded an organ named “The Central Entity” inside the Iraqi Interior Ministry with the objective of murdering and physically eliminating those opposing Iran gaining control over Iraq. With a prime minister like Nouri al-Maliki, al-Ameri enjoyed tremendous powers, issuing orders, firing people from their posts and… He acts as a head of state and commander in chief, and he was the first individual whom Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi met with to discuss how to amend and restore the cabinet.
