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.

'I want America to go out'

IHT- Iraq captain says he fears for his life, calls for US to leave country
The Associated Press
Published: July 29, 2007

JAKARTA, Indonesia: Younis Mahmoud's victory celebrations were tempered by reality.
Mahmoud scored the winning goal in Iraq's 1-0 Asian Cup final win over Saudi Arabia on Sunday, yet he feared for his life if he went home to celebrate the stunning victory, and said he would not be returning to the war-torn country.
"I don't want the Iraqi people to be angry with me," he said. But, "If I go back with the team, anybody could kill me or try to hurt me.
"One of my closest friends, they (the authorities) came to arrest him, and for one year neither me nor his family knew where he is."
The Sunni Muslim Iraqi captain — who like the rest of the team wore a black arm band to remember the dozens killed by carbombers following the side's semifinal victory over South Korea on Wednesday — said the American presence in his homeland was a "problem."

"I want America to go out," he said. "Today, tomorrow, or the day after tomorrow, but out. I wish the American people didn't invade Iraq and hopefully it will be over soon."
A first Asian Cup title has provided rare joy for people in Iraq amid continuing ethnic, religious and sectarian violence.
The team's players do not live in Iraq and work for clubs across the Middle East — Mahmoud works for Qatar club Al Gharafa and was leading scorer in the domestic league last season.
Iraq hosted the 2002 World Cup qualifiers in Baghdad — the last event held there before the March 2003 U.S.-led invasion. Preparing for major events takes place on foreign soil.
The Iraqi squad gathered in Jordan ahead of the Asian Cup.
On Sunday, the government in Iraq enforced a vehicle ban in an effort to prevent a repeat of the two car bombings that tore into people celebrating Iraq's semifinal win over South Korea on Wednesday.
Mahmoud said one of the victims was a small child.
"His mother said when her child was killed in front of her, she didn't cry. She said, 'I present my son as a sacrifice for the national team.' Then we had to win."
Mahmoud scored the winner on 71 minute after Iraq had dominated most of the match in front of some 60,000 fans, most of them Indonesians cheering on the underdogs.
When the final whistle blew, many players pressed their heads to the ground in prayer.
"Thanks be to God," said defender Bassim Abbas. "I am happy because the people in Iraq are happy."

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.--
