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.

The world is focusing on Iraq's parliamentary elections - the second since the US-led invasion in 2003.
Millions of people turned out to cast their ballots across the country on Sunday, but the vote was marred by violence as a series of explosions left at least 38 people dead in the capital, Baghdad.
About 19 million voters were eligible to choose from more than 6,000 candidates from 86 political groups looking to gain seats in the 325-member assembly.
Jalal Talabani, the Iraqi president, has said that the road to democracy has not been lined with roses. But has it been a truly democratic process?
After years under the rule of Saddam Hussein, followed by occupation and sectarian violence, is Iraq read to be a fully-fledged democracy?

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.--
