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.

Human Rights Watch: No woman is Safe

Friday, March 5, 2010

From Dr. Imad Khadduri's blog

How peace loving can you get?

"On March 1 each year, the Marshall Islands mark Nuclear Victims Day, a national holiday on the anniversary of the 1954 Bravo hydrogen bomb test.
When the 15-megaton Bravo was detonated at Bikini Atoll there was no warning for the people on Rongelap and other islands downwind of the blast.
A snowstorm of radioactivity exposed the unsuspecting islanders to a near lethal dose of radiation, causing vomiting, skin burns and their hair to fall out -- classic symptoms of high-level radiation exposure.
The majority of islanders have had thyroid tumors and cancers and many of their children were stillborn or with defects and other health problems.
They were evacuated 48 hours after the Bravo test but returned three years later and remained at Rongelap until 1985, when they evacuated the atoll.
Now, they are being told by the United States to go home for good."

"Doctors in the Iraqi city of Fallujah are reporting a high level of birth defects, with some blaming weapons used by the US after the Iraq invasion.
The city witnessed fierce fighting in 2004 as US forces carried out a major offensive against insurgents.
Now, the level of heart defects among newborn babies is said to be 13 times higher than in Europe.
The US military says it is not aware of any official reports showing an increase in birth defects in the area.
..... officials in Fallujah had warned women that they should not have children."
Fallujah doctors report rise in birth defects, March 4, 2010 (See two BBC videos)

Here we are, 20 years after the "end of the Cold War", and (see below) the Average American is still happily willing to drop hydrogen bombs, first, against enemies real or imagined.

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.--
