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.

GOING TO THE HAGUE
The Blair War Crimes Foundation is pleased to announce that we are now supporting Bill Bowring, Professor of International Law at Birkbeck College, University of London, and his colleagues, in their submission to the International Criminal Court at The Hague, asking for a preliminary investigation of Blair and his colleagues for war crimes committed in 2003-4. Bill Bowring’s team will have access to our archive.
The Foundation’s Declaration has been signed by Derek Jacobi, Naji Haraj, John Pilger, Noam Chomsky, Ben Griffin, Bruce Kent, Ken Loach, Haifa Zangana, Tahrir Swift, and 6,113 other signatories
It is hoped that the unexpected revelations emerging from the Chilcot Inquiry, added to the Report prepared by Prof Bowring and his colleagues in 2004, will help to persuade the Prosecutor at the ICC to commence an investigation. The Report not only found substantial evidence of commission of war crimes, but also asserted that under the international legal principle of “joint enterprise”, Blair and others could be held liable for crimes committed by US forces, since both the USA and UK had embarked on an illegal course of action.
Signed by Joint Secretaries of the Blair War Crimes Foundation, Dr David Halpin and Nicholas Wood, on behalf of 6,113 other signatories (as of 2 Feb 2010).

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.--
