Member of Iraqi royal family sets sights on parliamentary seat - Telegraph

Sharif Ali bin Hussein, a descendant of Iraq's second king, is convinced of the need for a constitutional monarchy with him at the helm, but for now is only fighting for a seat in parliament.

I can but only wish HRH well in his endeavours. I also hope this is the first step to a form of restoration to the Hashemites in Iraq.

The Yazidis

Who are the Yazidis? The Yazidis are Kurdish followers of a syncretic religion, concentrated primarily in Iraq, who are members of a very close-knit and hierarchical society. There is an extensive religious hierarchy of priests headed by a chief sheikh.

The Yazidis are lead by an emir, or prince, as the leader of the community and the highest representative of the Yazidis to the world. This is a similar situation to the Ismailis, in which a royal family rules over a religious community rather than a nation or ethnic group.

When King Faisal II was murdered, his body was not exhibited in public, instead he was secretly buried on the hospital grounds where he was taken, years later he was reburied at the Royal Mausoleum in Baghdad.
The photo of the body dangling from a balcony you see circulating on websites, is the body of his uncle Abd'illah

Ghosts of Empire by Kwasi Kwarteng
The night of 13 July 1958 was a leisurely affair at the Qasr al-Rihab, the royal palace in Baghdad. With his habitual louche taste, King Faisal II and his court were watching a private performance of the 1950s romance The Pajama Game. Meanwhile, the tanks of Colonel Abdul Salam Arif were rumbling toward the palace.
At 7.45am the royal family was surrounded. A captain of Arif's brigade emerged with a machine gun in hand and fired a volley of shots. This prompted a "burst of bullets from every direction", with the king and crown prince instantly hit. The encircling mob grabbed the body of the prince, dragged it through the Baghdad streets, then cut his remains into pieces and hung them over telephone poles in front of the ministry of defence.
So ended the Hashemite dynasty in Iraq puppet of the British state and tool of western oil interests.

Iraq's last king lives on in Tintin comics

Iraq's last king lives on in Tintin comics
Everyone here knows that the July 14 bridge, a convenient route to the US Embassy and government offices in Baghdad's fortified Green Zone, marks a 1958 coup when Iraq's last king was murdered. But not many know that King Faisal II lives on in the classic "Tintin" comic books.
This includes his own cousin, the man who would be king in the unlikely event that the Iraqi monarchy was restored.
"I have read Tintin since childhood but I never made the connection with King Faisal," laughed Sharif Ali bin Hussein, amused to learn that Belgian comic writer Herge had modeled one of his characters on his relative.

gulfnews : A monarch by default
Faisal Bin Hussain Bin Ali Al Hashemi fought one empire only to fall prey to the schemes of another. Still, the dream of a unified Arab world stayed with him until his end.
Best portrayed by Sir Alec Guinness in David Lean's award-winning epic film, Lawrence of Arabia (1962), Faisal Bin Hussain Bin Ali Al Hashemi was the Hijazi prince who fought France and Britain, espoused Arab nationalism in Syria, led the Arab Revolt, faced defeat and reluctantly accepted a throne that was specifically created by Britain to permanently isolate him in Iraq. In many ways, Faisal I, as he eventually came to be known, was the quintessential Arab who trusted predators even when key advisers warned him not to get carried away by Anglo-French charms.

I wonder if Iraq would have been stable with a monarchy and if today would the country benefit with a monarchy.

Thats a very interesting question, and ive literally only just posted in the "Murdered Royals" section thread, on the subject of the Iraqi Royal Families murder in Baghdad in 1958.
There was always some unrest and Republican military sentiments in Iraq 1920s-50s, but in general the Hashemite Royal family were really quite popular, especially the young King's Ghazi and Faisal II.
Most the anti-Monarchist feeling was primarily aimed at the former Regent and Crown Prince, Abd al-Ilah (King Faisal's uncle), and the Prime Minister Nuri Said.
