In a recent explosive TV interview, Iraq’s Grand Mufti Rafi Al-Rifa’i, the highest Sunni authority in the country, accused the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), the Iraqi Government, and Iraqi Shiite Militias of mass genocidal killings and rape of Sunni men and women.

The Sunni Mufti Al-Rifa’i posed the unanswerable question, “Why should we fight ISIS?  So the Iranian IRGC can take over?  The same Iranian IRGC that is running operations in Iraq.” Al-Rifa’i  is the religious leader of roughly eight million Sunni Muslims who live in the western parts of Iraq.

The IRGC is the key Iranian governmental army. Unlike the regular Iranian Army. which is tasked with the regular military duties such as defending Iran’s borders, the IRGC conducts special forces, military intelligence, and overseas military/intelligence operations. The IRGC is officially recognized as a direct component of the Iranian military under Article 150 of the Iranian Constitution. Therefore, its actions and possible war-crimes are the direct actions and direct responsibility of the Iranian Government itself.

In a tragic retelling, Al-Rifa’i described that when the Iraqi Sunni town of Jurf al-Sakhar was “liberated,” many of the men were executed in mass numbers. To top things off, the women and children were not allowed to return to their homes and were left “without a roof over their heads.” He added, “Orchards were bulldozed, and houses and (Sunni) mosques were burned down.” He claimed it was part of a genocidal campaign against Sunnis.
