Halt All Executions! Abolish The Death Penalty!

We women of Tadhamun condemn the persisting practice of arbitrary arrests by the Iraqi security forces. We condemn their arrests of women in lieu of their men folk. These are 'inherited' practices. We are alarmed by credible media reports of the Green Zone government’s intentions of executing hundreds of Iraqi men and women.

Robert Fisk: Divide and rule - America's plan for Baghdad

Robert Fisk: Divide and rule - America's plan for Baghdad
Revealed: a new counter-insurgency strategy to carve up the city into sealed areas. The tactic failed in Vietnam. So what chance does it have in Iraq?
Published: 11 April 2007
Faced with an ever-more ruthless insurgency in Baghdad - despite President George Bush's "surge" in troops - US forces in the city are now planning a massive and highly controversial counter-insurgency operation that will seal off vast areas of the city, enclosing whole neighbourhoods with barricades and allowing only Iraqis with newly issued ID cards to enter.
The campaign of "gated communities" - whose genesis was in the Vietnam War - will involve up to 30 of the city's 89 official districts and will be the most ambitious counter-insurgency programme yet mounted by the US in Iraq.

لندن ـ القدس العربي : كشفت صحيفة الاندبندنت البريطانية عن تفاصيل جديدة في خطة امنية امريكية تهدف لرسم حدود جديدة في العاصمة العراقية بغداد وانشاء كانتونات معزولة. وقالت الصحيفة ان خطة فرق تسد الامريكية في بغداد هي اعادة انتاج لخطة فشلت اثناء حرب فيتنام. وتشمل الخطة الواسعة التي تعمل واشنطن تحت قيادة القائد الجديد للقوات الامريكية في العراق الجنرال ديفيد بترايوس لعزل احياء كاملة في بغداد واغلاقها من خلال نقاط التفتيش وعدم السماح الا لحاملي بطاقات هوية تؤكد انهم يعيشون في الحي، وذلك علي غرار ما فعلت عام 2004 بعد تدمير مدينة الفلوجة. وقال مراسل الصحيفة روبرت فيسك الذي اعد التقرير ان الخطة تعود في اصولها لحرب فيتنام وستكون اوسع واكثر خطة لمكافحة المقاومة يقوم بها الجيش الامريكي منذ بداية غزو العراق عام 2003، وستؤدي لخلق تجمعات سكانية مغلقة وتعيش خلف الابواب وتشمل 30 حيا من بين 89 حيا من احياء بغداد. ويقول الكاتب ان الخطة طبقت في الماضي وفشلت وتطبيقها في العراق هو علامة يأس امريكية، حيث تبحث امريكا عن اية امكانية للانتصار علي المقاومة العراقية التي قتلت اكثر من 3200 جندي امريكي. واكد الكاتب ان حشد السكان في محتشدات فشل في تجارب استعمارية، كما حدث اثناء حرب التحرير الجزائرية والاستعمار الفرنسي، كما تطبق اسرائيل نفس السياسة في الاراضي الفلسطينية المحتلة وبنجاحات متواضعة
Some Adhamiya residents have said the wall will make their district a prison.
Adhamiya lies on the mainly Shia Muslim east bank of the Tigris river and violence regularly flares between the enclave and nearby Shia areas.
Construction of the 5km (three-mile) concrete wall began on 10 April and the US military says it hopes to complete the project by the end of the month.

Samarra Minrate built in 852 AD

Samarra Minrate built in 852 AD
Building of 1 500 massive police station !
From the angle of the photo, it is possible to calculate that the complex is being built at E 396388 N 3785995 (UTM Zone 38 North) or Lat. 34.209760° Long. 43.875325°, to the west of the Malwiya (Spiral Minaret), and behind the Spiral Cafe.
While the point itself may not have more than Abbasid houses under the ground, it is adjacent to the palace of Sur Isa, the remains of which can be seen in the photo. While the initial construction might or might not touch the palace, accompanying activities will certainly spread over it.Sur Isa can be identified with the palace of al-Burj, built by the
Abbasid Caliph al-Mutawakkil, probably in 852-3 (Northedge, Historical Topography of Samarra, pp 125-127, 240). The palace is said to have cost 33 million dirhams, and was luxurious. Details are given by al-Shabushti, Kitab al-Diyarat.
Samarra was declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO at the end of June. The barracks could easily have been built elsewhere, off the archaeological site.--
