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.

Shi'ite groups say attacked Polish envoy and embassy in Iraq

By Mariam Karouny
BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Two Shi'ite militant groups have claimed responsibility for deadly bomb attacks on Polish targets in Iraq, saying they were in response to the alleged torture of Iraqi detainees by troops from Poland.
In a video obtained by Reuters Television on Sunday, the hitherto-unknown Imam Hussein Brigades and Imam Moussa al-Kadhim Brigades said Poland, part of the U.S.-led coalition in Iraq, had allied with the "devil" America to kill Iraqis.
Four masked men, all armed and with one holding a rocket-propelled grenade launcher, were seen standing in front of black flags bearing the names of their groups in Arabic script. One read from a prepared statement.
"The attacks are a clear message to Poland -- Leave Iraq before you drown in its swamp as Britain did," he said, referring to Britain's recently announced decision to halve its force in southern Iraq by next spring.
"We want to tell Poland that all its interests in Iraq will be targeted by our resistance, including the diplomats, companies and troops. We only exclude journalists," he said.
Poland's ambassador to Iraq, General Edward Pietrzyk, was wounded in a triple bomb attack on his diplomatic convoy in Baghdad earlier this month. A Polish secret service officer and an Iraqi were killed in the attack.
Five days later a car bomb killed two people near Poland's Baghdad embassy. There were no casualties among staff or damage to the building.
"The attacks are a natural reaction to what the Polish troops are doing in Diwaniya, from killing to detentions and torturing of the people in Diwaniya," the masked man said in the video, which was dated last week.
POLES DENY TORTURE CLAIMS
About 900 Polish troops are based in Qadisiya province, also known by local residents as Diwaniya, supporting the 8th Iraqi Army division and training Iraqi soldiers and police.
"Polish troops have never tortured anyone in Diwaniya. All proper procedures concerning detention are followed," the spokesman for Polish forces, Lieutenant-Colonel Wlodek Glogowski, told Reuters.
Polish Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kacynski, facing a general election in a week's time, has vowed to maintain Polish troops in southern Iraq, despite the attack on the ambassador.
In the video, the groups also referred to Poland's former status as a Soviet satellite state.
"We know you were under occupation and how much you suffered, remember how much you suffered," the speaker said.
Qadisiya is in the largely stable Shi'ite south, which has escaped much of the sectarian violence that has ravaged the rest of the country but has been beset by Shi'ite infighting.
The two main Shi'ite militias, the Mehdi Army loyal to anti-American cleric Moqtada al-Sadr and the Badr Organisation of the Supreme Iraqi Islamic Council (SIIC), the largest Shi'ite party, have been fighting for control of towns and cities.

Polish ambassador injured in Iraq Play Video

بغداد (رويترز) - أعلنت جماعتان شيعيتان مسؤوليتهما عن الهجمات التي أسفرت عن سقوط قتلى ضد أهداف بولندية في العراق. وأشارتا الى أن ذلك جاء ردا على التعذيب المزعوم لمحتجزين عراقيين على يد قوات بولندية.
وفي تسجيل مصور حصل عليه تلفزيون رويترز يوم الاحد قالت كتائب الامام الحسين وكتائب الامام موسى الكاظم التي لم تكونا معروفتين من قبل ان بولندا التي تشارك في التحالف الذي تقوده الولايات المتحدة في العراق تحالفت مع "الشيطان" الولايات المتحدة من أجل قتل العراقيين.
وشوهد في التسجيل أربعة ملثمين جميعهم مسلحون وأحدهم كان يحمل قاذفا صاروخيا. وكانوا يقفون أمام أعلام سوداء تحمل اسمي الجماعتين باللغة العربية. وكان هناك شخص يقرأ بيانا.
قال "ان العمليات رسالة واضحة (الى بولندا) أن أخرجي من العراق بماء وجهك قبل ان تغرقي في مستنقع العراق كما غرقت بريطانيا" في إشارة الى قرار بريطانيا الاخير خفض قواتها الى النصف في جنوب العراق بحلول الربيع المقبل.
وأضاف "لتفهم بولندا ان كل مصالحها في العراق ستكون اهدافا لمقاومتنا الشريفة ولا نستثني اي جانب من الشركات والدبلوماسيين والعسكر." ولكنه استثنى الصحفيين.
وأصيب سفير بولندا في العراق الجنرال ادوارد بيترزيك في هجوم انتحاري ثلاثي على قافلته الدبلوماسية في بغداد في وقت سابق هذا الشهر. وقتل ضابط في المخابرات وعراقي في الهجوم.
وبعدها بخمسة أيام انفجرت سيارة ملغومة مما أسفر عن مقتل شخصين بالقرب من السفارة البولندية في بغداد. ولم تكن هناك اصابات بين العاملين في السفارة ولم تقع أضرار في المبنى.
وأضاف الرجل الذي غطى وجهه بكوفية في التسجيل الذي كتب عليه تاريخ الاسبوع الماضي ان هذه العمليات كانت "رد فعل طبيعيا على ما تقوم به القوات البولندية من قتل واعتقالات وتعذيب وترهيب بمحافظة الديوانية."
وهناك نحو 900 جندي بولندي متمركزين في محافظة القادسية التي تعرف أيضا باسم الديوانية لدعم الفرقة الثامنة التابعة للجيش العراقي. وتعمل القوة البولندية على تدريب الجنود وأفراد الشرطة العراقيين.
وقال الليفتنانت كولونيل فلوديك جلوفسكي لرويترز "ان القوات البولندية لم تعذب أحدا قط في الديوانية. جميع الاجراءات السليمة المتعلقة بالاحتجاز يجري اتباعها."
وتعهد رئيس الوزراء البولندي ياروسلاف كاتشينسكي الذي يواجه انتخابات عامة خلال أسبوع بالابقاء على القوات البولندية في جنوب العراق على الرغم من الهجوم على السفير.
.وأشار التسجيل المصور الى تبعية بولندا سابقا للاتحاد السوفيتي.
"تذكروا ما عانيتم من جراء الاحتلال.. نقول للشعب البولندي ان حكومتكم تقتل ابناءنا مرضاة لامريكا من اجل الحصول على مكسب سياسي."0
ومحافظة القادسية منطقة شيعية مستقرة الى حد كبير في الجنوب. من مريم قرعوني

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.--
