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.

Unicef appeal for Iraqi children

BBC: Wednesday, 23 May 2007, 06:26 GMT 07:26 UK
Iraqi children are getting caught up in a growing humanitarian tragedy as violence continues in the country, the UN Children's Fund (Unicef) has warned.
Half of the four million Iraqis who have fled their homes since the conflict began are children.
And the needs of children are outstripping the international aid that has been supplied, the agency said.
More funds were needed, Unicef said, launching an appeal for almost $42m (£21m) over the next six months.
"Violence is creating widows and orphans on a daily basis, many of whom are left to struggle for survival," it said.
"Iraq's children, already casualties of a quarter of a century of conflict and deprivation, are being caught up in a rapidly worsening humanitarian tragedy."
'Tremendous impact'
A Unicef official based in the region, Claire Hajaj, told the BBC a crisis point for Iraq's children had already been reached.
"We're not waiting for the situation to get worse, or warning that it might get worse. It's already worse.
"They do need basic humanitarian relief, and also people in the community supporting these displaced families, particularly inside Iraq, need help too," she said.
Unicef wants to use the funds to help provide vaccines, food, clean water and schools for children in Iraq, it said.
It also wants to help governments in Syria and Jordan to provide better healthcare for Iraqi children there.
Aid that reached Iraqi children made a big difference, the agency said.
"Our experience operating daily inside Iraq confirms to us that aid does indeed reach children and makes a tremendous impact, even in extremely insecure areas," said Daniel Toole, Unicef's chief of emergency operations.
One such example was a recent immunisation programme under which 3.6 million children were vaccinated against measles, mumps and rubella, Unicef said.
But it warned that cholera could be a problem over the summer, citing five early cases among children under 12 in the city of Najaf.
A lack of clean drinking water and healthcare could increase the danger of an outbreak, the agency said.
It plans to supply hundreds of thousands of rehydration packs which can stop the disease becoming fatal.

حذرت منظمة الامم المتحدة للطفولة (يونيسف) من أن أطفال العراق باتوا في قلب مأساة إنسانية مع استمرار دوامة العنف في البلاد.
وكشفت المنظمة عن أن نصف عدد الملايين الاربعة من العراقيين الذين نزحوا من ديارهم منذ غزو العراق هم من الاطفال.
وأوضحت المنظمة أن احتياجات الاطفال تفوق المساعدات الدولية المقدمة.
ولذا فإن هناك حاجة لمزيد من الاموال، بحسب المنظمة التي طالبت في مناشدتها الجديدة بتقديم 42 مليون دولار خلال الاشهر الستة المقبلة.
وأضافت يونيسف أن "العنف يتسبب في تزايد أعداد الارامل والايتام بشكل يومي، يكافح الكثيرون منهم من أجل مجرد البقاء دون عون".
وقالت المنظمة "إن أطفال العراق، الذين هم بالفعل ضحايا لربع قرن من الصراع والحرمان، باتوا في قلب مأساة إنسانية تشهد تدهورا متسارعا". "تأثير هائل"
وصرحت كلير حجاج، المسؤولة في يونيسف في منطقة الشرق الاوسط، لـ بي بي سي بأن وضع أطفال العراق وصل بالفعل إلى مستوى الازمة.
وأضافت "لسنا ننتظر حتى يزيد الوضع سوءا، أو لنحذر من احتمال تدهوره، إن الوضع سيء بالفعل".
وأوضحت حجاج أن أطفال العراق "بحاجة إلى مساعدات إنسانية أساسية، وكذلك الاشخاص الذين يساعدون هذه الاسر المشردة داخل الاحياء، وخاصة داخل العراق، بحاجة إلى مساعدة أيضا".
وقالت يونيسف إنها تريد استخدام هذه الاموال في تقديم اللقاحات الدوائية، والاغذية والمياه النظيفة والتعليم للاطفال في العراق

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.--
