Rain & Death
I admire all my blog visitors' comments. On my post (Kill, No One Punished), one of the comments drew my attention. It was Stefania's, so I sent her an email which she replied to. I'm grateful for the reply & I understand her attitude.
Now, I find my email to Stefania is worthy to be posted, since it shows my point of view about very dangerous circumstances which ordinary Iraqi people have to face. I'll try to notify her about this post so she might comment on it.
First, thanks for visiting my blog & commenting. Second, I made a post leading to the "Regime change in Syria" petition, which I expect you don't mind. I signed the petition.
Now, I hope that you won't mind explaining your attitude toward Segrina. I could not perceive the last line of your comment. Is it easy to wish others death? I'm not on her side, since I don't know whom she represents exactly. I wanted to draw attention to one of the daily hostilities the Iraqis face. Your comment says:
"Sgrena was a friend of the Terrorists, That means a friend of those who kill innocent iraqis everyday.Too bad that she is still alive"
Another comment you made says:
"Ibn, would you be happy if we let you in the hands
Well, it is not a matter of comparing bad to worse. Criticizing a bad way of conduct dose not mean that the worse is the solution.
People who claim being tolerant & wise should accept criticism to
move to better positions. I think that I'm addressing such people. On the other hand I am not addressing Zarqawi & people of hatred, since they do not respect human lives.
You also say:
"I think you are committing a big mistake comparing the Americans to the head-choppers a la Zarqawi."
For the simple Iraqi person it is death no matter who kills him/her. I am not against the the Americans & I recognize any American withdrawal from Iraq as a disaster.
Thanks again, with high respects.
Many journalists wrote about the same matter. I read some Arabic articles referring to some of them. One is written by Ania Sizadlo (sorry for the misspelling, the name mainly in Arabic) in the Christian Science Monitor about her experience with the American checkpoints in Iraq. Another says that it took an American soldier more than 48 hours & more than 30 Iraqi casualties to understand that his sign for the Iraqi car drivers to stop means a salutation according to the Iraqi tradition.
