Paying Tribute

The Iraqi national assembly is calling for three minutes of silent halt at midday (8:00 GMT) today to pay tribute to the Iraqi victims who lost their lives in the bloody blasts on last Wednesday 13th July in Baghdad & on Saturday 16th July in Musayyib.

Many international condemnations came from the non-Arab world, but no Arab government or the Arab league said a word about it. The Spokesman for UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan issued a press release condemning the killing of large number of children in Baghdad. A statement (on the 15th July) made by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spokesperson condemned in the strongest terms the attack which claimed the lives of 32 children and teenagers in Baghdad on July 13. Even a spokesman for the Iranian government condemned the attacks.

It hurts a lot to hear nothing from the Arab peoples who claim there are many ties of brotherhood relate them to the Iraqis.

The suicide bomb attacks remind the Iraqis, especially the Baghdadis, of the s/s missile blitzes exchanged with Iran during the war between the two countries (1980-1988) & the allies' air raids (1991-2003). The Iraqis have represented the fuel for the struggles in the region, still gained nothing but more & more deterioration. Many Iraqis believe that it is a curse by a prophet or a saint to suffer all this time.

Ibn,
Do not expect to hear anything from the Arab world. They wish to continue using the Iraqis and the Palestinians as pawns in their game of power with "the West". Those nations care nothing about either group of people, and they will continue to be willing to sacrifice innocent Iraqis to the bombers as long as it creates mayhem and chaos.
They fear a new, democratic Iraq like they fear an asp in their beds. Your bright future condemns them to a fate like the one awaiting Saddam.
Stay strong. Work for peace. Be proud you are an Iraqi. That is all it takes to defeat all these enemies.

I'm sorry they think this is some curse of Gods/Allahs...
Nothing could be fruther from the truth.. Bad things happen to everybody, good people/bad people.
There is good and bad, always has been always will be, here on earth.

You only qualify as an Arab brother if you subscribe to the Arab Nation or Global Caliphate delusions.

Ibn Alrafidain,

Your land has had many trials. They have lasted for thousands of years, but do not lose heart. You are a great people, with a great future. I am praying for you that all of the people's eyes would be opened and that you would all be able to live in peace together.
Blessings to you, my friend.

As Iraq will be having regular
elections from now on perhaps
the day before the official
election day can be a national
day of mourning thereby linking
their scarifice forever with
the freedom to vote which will
surely be appreciated by future
generations.

In addition we in the US are shocked at both the lack of concern for what is going in Iraq by the UN,
and Arab/Muslim states and
the French/Germans etc.

But it is important for the people of Iraq to realize that
the violence is due to Saddam.

Saddam had many many months to prepare his strategy ... The US
military did not kill that many
of Saddams forces ... What is going on in Iraq now is part of
a plan of Saddam.

Allowing Zarqawi to set up in Iraq
and to target Shiites.

A Newsweek article several months ago during thw winter months claimed that Zarqawi was in Iraq
January of 2003 ... over 3 months
before the invasion.

The point being the Iraqi people are fighting Saddam.

lets hope a breakthrough with the
Iraqi's still fighting comes soon,
and that this will be Iraqs last war.
