Iraqi elections and the Israel factor

So I have been checking on some names and how they fared in the recent Iraqi puppet elections. (No election should be held under occupation). Several striking things. America's favorite man in Iraq, by far, Muwaffaq Rubay`i, did not win one a seat. Not one seat. And the one Iraqi who calls for peace between Iraq and Israel (and who survives assassination attempts at the rate of twice a day), Mithal Allusi, did not win one seat. Not one seat. And Saudi Arabia's favorite Shi`ite clerics, and he is a favorite Shi`ite for Al-Arabiyya TV (the station of King Fahd's brother-in-law), Iyad Jamal Ad-Din who bragged on his site of the amount of money he spent on the election, did not win one seat. Not one seat.
