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.

طالبت قوى غربية العراق بإنهاء ملفات التعذيب والقتل في جرائم الشرف وإلغاء عقوبة الإعدام.
وفي سياق آخر تصدر العراق قائمة الدول المهددة بالهجمات الإرهابية عام 2009 للعام الثاني على التوالي.
Iraq has rejected calls to abolish or suspend capital punishment made during a review by the U.N.'s top human rights body.
Some 20 countries had urged Iraq to end the death penalty that has been used against high-profile members of the former regime of Saddam Hussein and in the country's crackdown against insurgent groups.
Iraq has also dismissed suggestions that it should reduce the number of crimes for which the death penalty can be imposed.
The country told the Geneva-based U.N. Human Rights Council on Friday that it also wouldn't commit to investigating abuse against gays or decriminalize homosexuality.
Neither would it raise the age of penal responsibility to 18 years. It is currently 9 in most of Iraq and 11 in Kurdistan.

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.--
