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.

Human Rights Watch: No woman is Safe

Tuesday, July 31, 2007

Forced out of their homes and ignored, the displaced Iraqis, who cares?

Below is the text of the press release circulated after a brief meeting of SIUI members with the secretary General of the Arab League.

Women of Solidarity for an Independent and Unified Iraq (SIUI) based in the UK, met the Secretary General of the League of Arab States, Amre Moussa on the 11th July 2007 and presented him with a proposal for ‘housing displaced Iraqis in the safe provinces’.

“Why are our people living the indignities of the displaced outside and inside Iraq, when there are fourteen provinces relatively safe as the US and British officials claim? Amongst the displaced are doctors and teachers, able to work hard for our people, so why send them away?” said Shahrazad Al Khayal.

According to the UNHCR, the number of Iraqis who have sought refuge in Syria and Jordan alone has topped 2 million. These two nations have received next to nothing from the international community to assist them according to the UN.

"Currently, the number of displaced people is increasing at an average of 80,000-100,000 a month," said the IRCS report dated 5 July and relating to the period from February 2006 to 30 June 2007. The IRCS, the only humanitarian relief agency on the ground, said the nearly 67 percent increase in the number of displaced families since last January "is intensifying an already unstable situation"(*)

“The occupation government in Baghdad has pledged only $25m for 2.2m Iraqis forced to flee Iraq. This shows their blatant indifference towards our people who had to flee because this government’s and the occupiers’ failure to discharge their duties in accordance with international law” said Dr. Nawal Zangana.

SIUI women emphasised the importance of applying continuous political pressure on the occupation government in Iraq as a reminder of its obligations towards Iraqi citizens whom it has failed. The women thanked Syria, the only country not to turn away Iraqis at the border.

The Secretary General sympathised with the concerns of SIUI women and expressed his pain for Iraq. His Excellency pledged to do his best to alleviate the suffering of the displaced Iraqis

“Up to 9th April 2003, Baghdad had one million Kurdish residents. Our Kurdish people are generous and welcoming so why not host the displaced Iraqis in the Kurdish area?” asked Dr. Sana Al Khayat.

SIUI women also made proposals for easing the requirements for renewal of residence in Syria and Jordan for the displaced Iraqis.

لقاء الامين العام للجامعة العربية مع عضوات تجمع تضامن
التقت مجموعة من النساء العراقيات من منظمة تضامن من أجل عراق موحد و مستقل بالأمين العام للجامعة العربية الدكتور عمرو موسى في لندن
يوم الأربعاء 11/7/2007، لطرح اشكالية الوضع الكارثي في العراق

و تركز الحديث على معاناة العراقيين المهجرين قسراَ و الذين يزيد عددهم على الأربعة ملايين شخص، نصفهم من الاطفال،حسب أحصائيات المفوضية العليا للاجئين في الأمم المتحدة، وأغلبيتهم محرومين من التعليم.

قدمت عضوات" تضامن" الى الأمين العام مذكرة تتضمن مقترحات عملية للتخفيف من معاناة المهجّرين العراقيين مع التأكيد على ضرورة الضغط المتواصل على حكومة الأحتلال في بغداد كي تواجه مسؤوليتها تجاه المواطنين العراقيين والذين هم في حال مزري بسبب فشل تلك الحكومة و جيوش الأحتلال في توفير الأمان والاستقرار لهم في بيوتهم وبلدهم حسب متطلبات معاهدة جنيف

وقد ذكرت الدكتورة نوال زنكنة، عضوة الوفد: " أن تخصيص حكومة
الأحتلال 25 مليون دولار فقط لأكثر من 2.2 مليون مهجر في سوريا والأردن ومصر يظهر لنا تهاون الحكومة وتقاعسها تجاه كارثة التهجير المهولة

وتساءلت شهرزاد الخيال: " لماذا يتشرد أطفالنا ونسائنا و شيوخنا داخل العراق و خارجه بينما توجد في داخل العراق مناطق آمنه ، كما يدعون؟ أليس بقائهم في العراق أفضل خصوصاً أن من بينهم الكثيرمن العقول والكفاءات التي يمكن أن تخدم البلد أية خدمة
وفي أشارة الى المنطقة الكردية أوضحت الدكتورة سناء الخياط الى أن بغداد الى حد يوم سقوطها كانت تحتضن مليون مواطن عراقي كردي وأن شعبنا الكردي مشهور بكرمه و سعة صدره فمالذي يمنع مشروع تكافل المحافظات؟

أبدت النساء أمتنانهن العميق للشعب السوري وموقفه العربي المشرف لاحتضانه اخوته من ابناء الشعب العراقي
كما قدمن بعض المقترحات العملية لغرض تسهيل أجراءات تجديد تأشيرة الأقامة للمهجرين في سوريا والأردن
أبدى الأمين العام ألمه لما يحدث للشعب العراقي ووعد بأن يعمل ما في وسعه للمطالبة برعاية المهجرين العراقيين و ضمان حقوقهم داخل العراق و خارجه
أنتهى

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.--
