Hi everybody,Just testing. Preparing to post soon.



TILL DEATH SHALL WE ALWAYS REMAIN APART - SERIOUS WARNING

2010-01-27T12:45:46.490-08:00

Iraqi Mojo,You asked me what do I think about the return of the Saddamist Baathists. Perhaps I did not answer you with sufficient clarity. The vast majority of the Iraqi people would rather die and go through hell, and would fight to the death even if that meant total destruction of everthing; rather than see the return of Ssddamists. The Americans and the whole world should not have any doubt



EL SID - PART II

2010-01-25T16:49:21.162-08:00

Hi Everybody,A recent encounter left a strong impression on me. It was an acquaintance of mine, a structural engineer like me. We met occasionally for some professional business in one of the Gulf Countries. One day I noticed that he was rather depressed and seemed quite angry. I asked him what the matter was. He told me that he had an argument with some non-Iraqi Arabs about the Iraqi situation



EL SID

2010-01-21T16:46:00.947-08:00

Hi Everybody,I remember an old Hollywood movie called "El Sid". It was based on a legend from the days when the Christians were fighting to expel the Moslems from Spain in the middle ages. You have all probably heard of the splendid era in Spain that lasted for several centuries, when an Islamic Umayyad western empire founded by Abd-ar-Rahman I (later titled Al-Dakhel) ;http://en.wikipedia.org/



WAKE UP CALL

2009-12-27T03:59:09.624-08:00

Hi,Every time I sit to write about the Iraqi situation, something grave comes up that requires attention. It is now this abortive attempt to explode an American airplane by this Nigerian young man who apparently claims that he was doing it on the orders of Al-Qaida in Yemen. Now this is serious and therefore I would like to address this post directly to all Moslems in North America, i.e. both the



MERRY CHRISMAS

To all christians, and especially Iraqi Christians.MERRY CHRISTMASAlaa



THE PLAN

2009-12-22T11:24:18.452-08:00

OutlawMike,You are forcing me to digress again form the main subject of this blog. Never mind, though, I can persevere for one more post especially for you, see how much I care for you.What you say is indeed quite alarming, I mean Moslems overrunning Molenbeek, Kuregem, Anderlecht and many other funny names like that is something truly affreux; more scandalous still, some of them actually going



WHAT TO DO WITH THE MOSLEMS

2009-12-20T12:04:23.712-08:00

Hi everybody:First of all I wish to convey greetings and best wishes to all my old friends and readers of this blog.Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everybody.Actually, I intended to discuss the Iraqi situation and my forebodings regarding the future in the light of the planned American withdrawal. However, the irksome discussions in the comments section about Islam and the Muslims force me



HI, ITS ME AGAIN

2009-12-12T06:27:43.990-08:00

Dear friends,It has been a long time since I posted. Many things have happened meanwhile. So many thoughts and reflections I felt like conveying to you. Well, for those who have known this blog for a long time will remeber that it was originally created for a purpose. The purpose was WARNING. Warning of danger. Of grave danger to Iraq as well as to the West and the U.S. in particular. Nowadays, I



THE AMERICAN-IRAQI AGREEMENT

2008-11-27T12:16:17.909-08:00

Hi,Today another important milestone in the post Saddam era has been established. I was one of those who felt quite uncomfortable and impatient at the painful protracted negotiations and bargaining for concluding the so called “security agreement” between the U.S.A. and Iraq. Yet as things turned out, perhaps there are positive aspects about the way that it was done. The fact that the



THE GHOST

2008-11-04T12:50:50.820-08:00

Hi everybody,You know, it is a fact that intense suffering and being in a situation where right and wrong are clearly defined seem to be an incentive for self expression and creative thought. For example Russian literature reached its pinnacle during the 19th century under the regime of the Tsars, when tyranny was coupled with certain freedoms for thinkers and writers. Although the Tsars were

Hi everybody,It's been long since I blogged the last time. It is time I said hello to my friends again. Standby for a post that will follow.Best wishes to all



NEW NOTES

2008-04-10T23:20:51.768-07:00

Hi,I was watching the Interrogation of General David Petraeus and the ambassador. What struck me most was the attitude and words from some of the Democratic senators. It seemed as though the enemy for these ladies and gentlemen was not Al-Qaeda, the terrorists or people like that. All the venom and harsh words were directed against the Iraqi government and poor Al-Maliki, these seemed to be the



NOTES

2008-03-21T05:05:40.969-07:00

Hi,Perhaps one of the most difficult things in life is to be a kind of stickler for the truth; to have a kind of allergy against the slightest strain or trace of falsehood or inconsistency in any set of beliefs, morals, political movements, or generally in situations that one faces during a lifetime. This makes life difficult and makes it difficult to belong to any particular label, because sadly



BIRDS

2008-02-01T06:11:23.697-08:00

Hi,Another sad day: the Al-Gazle pet market and another pet market have been hit today, see this. This particular place has been attacked several times before and still it happens. It is heartbreaking really. The people who frequent these traditional and very lovable places are usually amongst the poorest and are mostly young animal loving hobbyists. This kind of savagery and brutality defies



AWAKENING

2008-01-25T09:57:28.872-08:00

Hi everybody,The past year has certainly been extraordinary even by comparison with the action packed years preceding it. During the course of the year there was a remarkable upturn of the situation that I shall attempt to discuss in this post.The early months of the year saw the country at the nadir point since the overthrow of Saddam when in contrast the “insurgency” seemed to be at the zenith



SEASON GREETINGS

2007-12-19T18:59:45.605-08:00

Hi everybody,I wish all my friends a Merry X-Mass and Happy New Year.The Mesopotamian is not dead but only hybernating at the moment. Hope to wake up from the stupor in the not too distant future. The scene is really changing back home and Iraq has entered a distinctly new phase. I have so many things to say but I am just brooding and waiting and at a loss which of the million thoughts to write

Hi,My friends may be disappointed with me for these long periods of silence, but this silence really is a result of discouragement and discontent. In a private letter to one of my friends I have frankly stated some of my misgivings concerning some of the aspects of the Iraqi situation at the present time. I think it is rather important that I make some paragraphs of that letter public and here

Hi,Although I am mostly occupied in trying to get some employment at the moment, but I couldn't resist telling you that I am encountering great misundersting of the situation in Iraq here in Canada. In a small way and as much as possible, I try to correct the misconceptions of people I happen to encounter, but I feel that a more serious effort is required. Perhaps when I settle down more firmly I

Hi,Greetings to all my friends, and sorry to be out the radar screen for some time. This is because I am facing the normal problems awaiting all new immigrants and thus being very occupied trying to solve them. Things are moving forward however. I dread the coming winter though and am puzzled at the kind of clothing one aught to start shopping for to suit the winter of Northern Ontario. Any



CANADA DAY

2007-07-01T20:20:44.025-07:00

Hi,I consider it a good omen that my arrival to Canada coincided just before "Canada Day", the birthday of this country; because for me and my family it is also a kind of rebirth into a new life and a new country. Now, the country of your birth is an accident that is not of your choosing; but a country that you have chosen of your own free will and that has accepted you for citizenship for your

Hi,This is a special post dedicated to the remarks of “Outlaw Mike” who seems to be writing from Belgium. This is a very important subject and requires a very, very long answer. The problem is that I don’t have the time right now. But I really must pronounce at least some headlines of my own personal views about this. This friend is of an opinion and attitude, that, I am sure, is quite common in

Hi,It may be that we have left the land of Iraq and moved to the opposite side of the Earth, but Iraq does not seem to be able to quit our hearts and minds. It follows us like some phantom and refuses to leave us in peace to find our way in this new life. Where I am staying at the moment there is a satellite TV that receives Al-Iraqia and many of the other Arabic channels, and most of the time we



HELO FROM CANADA

2007-06-19T09:36:41.391-07:00

Hi,Warm greetings to all my friends and thank you for the beautiful words. I arrived safely in Canada and am staying somewhere in Ontario at the moment. People are so civilised and kind around here; in some ways despite the entirely new and bewildering differences I feel more at home already. Ofcourse it is not easy to start all over again to build a life, but you know that I am a believer in God



أما كانت ارض الله واسعة فتسيحوا فيها

Hi,I thank my friends who expressed concern about my fate. Well, my life and that of my family is in a state of great upheaval and flux at the moment. I have at last succumbed to a life long temptation that I have resisted for many, many years. At last I had to give in, mainly for the sake of my children and their future. I leave more than just property and belongings in Baghdad. I leave memories
