سميّة: الانتحارية المحظوظة

Niqash – Kholoud Ramzi (Baghdad) – 21 August 2008:

Sumaya will never forget the day when armed al-Qaeda men forced her to practice wearing an explosive vest under her clothes in preparation for a suicide attack on a local market she was supposed to carry out the following day.

Sumaya’s story began when her husband, Amjad al-Dulaimi, a former officer in the Iraqi army, joined al-Qaeda’s ranks after being recruited by former army colleagues.… Continue

the I raq-US deal

Posted on August 23, 2008 at 12:31pm 0 Comments

Iraq and the U.S. pushed close to a deal Thursday setting a course for American combat troops to pull out of major Iraqi cities by next June, with a broader withdrawal from the long and costly war by 2011.

Subject to final approval by the top Iraqi leadership, the exit date for U.S. troops would be December 2011, although the Americans insist on linking that target to additional security and political progress.

President Bush has long resisted a timetable for pulling out,… Continue

Thank you, Wameeth, for your information about Rasheed Khaon. I agree with you that it is important for a country to acknowledge the dark side of its past - not just Iraq, but any country, including my own (USA). Still, I can also understand why a historical accounting for Iraq's treatment of Iraqi Jews 50 years ago would not be at the top of most Iraqis' agenda right now.
Democracy is not something that is either "on" or "off" in a country; it is a matter of degree. Certainly everyone in Iraq who cares about democracy (not just majority-rule, but liberal democracy, with protection for minority rights and individual freedoms) must know that rampant ethnic nationalism is the greatest danger to it there, yes? Maybe after a measure democratic self-governance has been established more securely in Iraq, it will be possible to turn the country's attention to the history of relationships among Iraq's different ethnic and religious communities, including Iraqi Jews.
If you ever learn that anything written by Mr. Khaon has been translated into English, please let me know. Thanks again.

I googled Rasheed Khaon, but found only one Arabic article, nothing in English. However, I did find a website I thought might interest you, if you don't already know about it:

Can you tell me a little about the "real story" he tells about Iraqi Jews? I ask because I've heard very different, even contradictory, stories - but none from Iraqis.

I see you accidentally posted a couple of comments to your own page when you meant them as replies to comments from me and (I think) Yigal. You probably know this, but just in case: When you want to reply to a comment someone left you, click on the "Comment back" button directly under their comment to you. Any chance you could copy the one for me into a reply, so it shows up on my page? Thanks! (Feel free to delete this message if you want.)

Dear Hayyim

i had make a mistake in my post ,when i said this is the first coverage on the subject ,it is the first on iraqi channals at lest ,but many had been done on arabic satlite channals ,as for your quiestion no the importance of the reports came from the point that they meet with jews from iraq and talk with them on their feelings to iraq,
the subject or iraqi jew leaving iraq is another file in iraq history (we do not a knowledge these things ever happen desk files ) along with the invasion of kewait or the destruction of baghdad by gangs when the US troops enter in april 2003 , we do not talk about it and if we did we smooth the reality to a less painful facts
unfortunatly our refusal to deal with facts and history is the reason why we still not establish real national reconcilation in iraq and why we deal with democracy and human rights as terms and words to say on TV other than facts or a way of life we need to adopt
of course people like me are pushed as far as possible from any place to talk about what happed and how to deal with it ? and prevent it from repeating to any one else in iraq or arbic world
in fact many of my iraq friends where very angry that i had wrote this blog in spit the fact that they all have copies of iraqi researcher RASHEED KHAON about iraq ethenic and religouse groups
which had disscuss the jewsh religon in iraq and had told the real story of iraqi jews ,it seem we had along why to become a deomcratic nation and we need alote of work to achive that

Salaam-shalom Wameeth,

Thanks for your intriguing post about the recent Iraqi television coverage of the issue of property abandoned by Iraqi Jews. I'd like to know, did the coverage say anything about the circumstances under which the bulk of the Iraqi Jewish community emigrated to Israel?

I'm excited by the prospect of hearing your perceptions and thoughts about developments in Iraq and about the U.S. role there. I'm so grateful to mepeace for making encounters like this possible!

To understand what we can do we must understand the new words that define our new world with consideration to democracy, freedom and human rights.
Democracy is basically the rule of the people, and after years of suppression under Saddam regime it came to use as the selection of government officials by the people.

But what we discover day by day is that we need Liberal democracy as a representative democracy along with the protection of minorities, the rule of law, a separation of powers, and protection of liberties of speech, assembly, religion, and property.
People till now because of the fast changes in Iraq did not understand the essence of democracy, and still treat so elected officials as they treated the old officials in Saddam days, as immune people, especially the simple people who were under the impression that democracy will be the answer of thousands of religious suppression.

We need a democracy with the preservation from the danger of majority rule in oppressing freedom and liberty of the individual.

We need to make democracy the method of our life not only to chose officials but to give every one in Iraq majority or minority , religious or unreligious ,white ,black ,Arab ,Kurd ,Turkmen,muslim ,sabi,christian,jews, the chance in making life changing decisions that will create the base of democracy in the Middle East.

God willing!!
It would be very educational for us if you would post some of your thoughts in the discussions here on mepeace.
How do you think the challenges facing Iraqis are similar or dissimilar from those facing Israelis and/or Palestinians?
All the best from the other side of the world,

My pleasure, Wameeth!
Being able to meet and talk peace with folks like you - on the other side of the world - makes this site very special.
Thanks for sharing. It is my honor to have made your acquaintance.,

Hi there Wameeth. This is a link to the original story I read and this is the website of the groups involved:
I am actually from Wales and not England and our national sport is Rugby which I am sure you do not have in Iraq. Nonetheless, we are all football mad here. Unlike your country though we haven’t won a cup in a long time!
If you need to know anything more or want me to look up any organization here in the UK so I can help with your work you can message me anytime.
Cheers Max.

Hi there Wameeth. After all you and your fellow Iraqis have been through in the last thirty years it is inspiring to read what you put on this site. All the best Max.

Do you know about the football club set up by the mother of a former American soldier for Iraqi kids. I can send you the link if you are interested.
