Who's the Emir of the Islamic Army?

Well, we sort of know that he is referred to as 'Abu Osama'; we got this from a poem penned by a poet affiliated with Al-Qaeda's Islamic State of Iraq (...its Poet Laureate, if you will) who called upon the Emir of the Islamic Army of Iraq, 'Abu Osama', to pledge allegiance to Abu Omar al-Baghdadi in the wake of the latter's conciliatory yet subtly belittling message.

Running the pseudonym 'Abu Osama' through the gossip mill gives us two likely candidates:

-Khalil al-Mulla Kawwan al-Jebouri (civilian, former Saddam regime functionary, from Dhulu'iyyah, north of Baghdad).

-Brig. Gen. Muhammad 'Abid Mahmoud al-Luheibi (ex-Iraqi Army officer, his brother is Lt. Gen. Ali al-Luheibi, former commander of the Saddam Fedayeen who currently resides in Damascus).

Bets are being placed on the latter: the Saudi press (al-Watan Newspaper) put out a story on April 18 that Iraqi President Jalal Talabani's security adviser, Gen. Wafiq al-Samarra'i, had held negotiations on Talabani's behalf in the Jordanian capital Amman with insurgent leaders among whom was Lt. Gen. Ali al-Luheibi. This was untrue (...al-Luheibi hasn't been to Jordan recently) and the newspaper's account was denied by al-Samarra'i himself in a statement released last week.

Furthermore, negotiations with the Islamic Army of Iraq usually go through former Iraqi Army Col. Hussein Salman al-Shimmeri, the IAI's official spokesman, in Amman. Al-Shimmeri is close to Ali al-Luheibi who, according to one account, fronts for his brother, Brig. Gen. Muhammad al-Luheibi, the alleged Emir of the IAI.

The Lheibat are one of these obscure tribes that are spread out all over Iraq and whose origins are disputed. They are likely of a lower Arabian stock, probably of the Sulubba variety.

'Abu Osama' Muhammad al-Luheibi is believed to operate primarily from the Dhulu'iyyah area.

As always with these speculations about the true identities of insurgent leaders nothing is certain or can be ascribed to anything beyond speculation. But figuring out who they are and what their backgrounds are goes a long way towards figuring out their motivation and base of support, and what their next set of moves may be.

The Islamic Army of Iraq is the second most active insurgent group after Al-Qaeda's Islamic State of Iraq. Their actions probably account for 15-20 percent of the total violence against U.S. troops, Iraqi government forces and Shi'ite militias; they don't usually target civilians or make use of suicide bombings, but they arbitrarily accuse civilian Shi'ites of belonging to known militias based on very scant information.

1: 酒店小姐的基本介紹跟工作內容已現在酒店上班沒有所謂的簽合約/切結書,因為這樣是綁小姐的做法,很不道德…【小姐總有一天會離開,強求她留在八大這是不人道的行為】
2: 我在酒店上班的日子在職人員想更換經紀人或酒店不想做了…卻有合約在身怎麼辦~…!?我梁曉尊直接跟你說可以馬上離開了
a : 酒店兼差不是一個複雜的工作環境?合約內容酒店小姐上班通常會取什麼名字?本身要件要有【商營利事業登記編號/還有政府認證核發蓋章】因為這些文件都是要繳稅的….一但登報稅了,您自己想想妳在職期間這幾年{妳}家人~早就會知道你在八大行業了…..反而家人卻沒發現,每年也都沒有繳稅單更沒有勞健保,因為這份是假合約【法律用語:偽造文書】
b :合約內容常有一段話:幾年以內不能離職/幾年內不能更換經紀人。這番話已經觸犯【法律用語:強制罪】
c :從一開始的違法合約到內容的不人道,甚至離職還又要賠償..。我梁曉尊跟妳說【妳被唬了】
d : 酒店小姐去酒店上班都一定要出場接s嗎?重頭到尾觸法的假合約,真的到警察局/法院 {妳}是贏家。
e :我梁曉尊做經紀人快十年了…我還沒見過有經紀公司拿著合約去警局敢賭這件事。
