Mithal al-Alusi is a former Iraqi exile who led a group which stormed the Iraqi embassy in Berlin in 2002. Following his conviction over the incident, he skipped bail to return to Iraq.
In Iraq, he acted as spokesman for Iraqi National Congress chief Ahmad Chalabi, and became director of the Debaathification Commission which Chalabi chaired. However, he was expelled from the INC in 2004 over a visit to Israel for a conference at the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya. Al-Alusi remained active in Iraqi politics, forming his own party. He continued to advocate closer links with Israel, attending Herzliya conferences in 2005 and 2008.
