Iraq Elections: Blogger Roundup

Sistani’s blessings.

At last Sistani decided to give his “blessings” publicly to the United Iraqi Alliance list that contains the most of the religious She’at parties together with the INC and some small minority parties. Sistani cleared this issue on answering questions submitted by the Arabic newspaper Al Ra’ai Al Am (Link in Arabic). He mentioned that although he blesses the Alliance list, he still support all the patriotic lists.

Technology allows tipsters anonymity

U.S. and Iraqi officials insist they are getting more tips from Iraqis about insurgent activity since the Americans transferred sovereignty to an interim government last June. Interior Minister Falah Hassan al-Naqib said recently that calls to an insurgency hot line have produced a number of arrests, although officials refuse to give figures.

Iraqi Suspicious of Human Rights Watch

With all due respect to Human Rights Watch and such similar organizations; we find the timing of the report about abuses by the Iraqi security forces against captured terrorist suspects, highly suspicious coming at this particular time. Of course, all acts of brutality against innocents are highly reprehensible and quite unacceptable; however, if it is certain that the suspects in question are some of the be-headers, mass murderers and perpetrators of the daily atrocities and flagrant aggression against a whole people, they deserve to be skinned alive. Moreover, really, to ask for perfect behavior of the security forces in the present circumstances, is like asking for immaculate English eating manners and bow ties at a cannibal feast in the heart of the jungle.

Bloody Day – 4 Days Left

Despite today being a very bad day for American soldiers, I believe over 30 died, I feel the pull of destiny stronger than ever. While the press is focusing on American deaths reaching a certain number, and we mourn all the dead who died for our freedom, it is at least comforting to know that the terrorists were not responsible for their deaths. The terrorists are getting weaker. The attacks they have carried out today were an anomoly, and if you look at statistics, attacks have been down.

Order is needed in every system, and law would assure the order in any society. Law either respected or enforced, so if the society would not respect the law then it must fear it.

After spending five day in a business trip to Basra again, I have came home three days ago filled with admire ness and respect to the Iraqi southern society which I found very cooperative and marching towards prosperity with steady steps.

The New Iraq!

Only 72 hours to go for the election in Iraq for the first time in about 50 years!
What a great occasion not only for Iraq but for the Middle East which is full with dictatorship regimes resulted in more hate and extremists.

The Iraqis will go for electing the following:

To say NO for the terrorists!
Iraqi Constitution!
Elected government for 3 or 4 years!
Elected parliament!
Freedom of talk!
Opposition parties practice without blood shed and coups!
Strong Economy!
Friendship rather than hate with the civilised nations and states!
No wars!
No place for terrorists!
Good education!
Better health and services!
Iraq for the Iraqis irrespective of who they are except the killers and terrorists!
The Iraqi fine oil is for the people not the dictators and their gangs!
Law above all!
No place for the mad dogs!
Just and sooner Trail for the former members of the massgraves killing fields!

Flying To The Moon……

“Tomorrow you have a day off”.Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaay. The relief when my boss uttered these words. Finally after working for every single day since the 2nd of January, no weekends,no Eid vacation, nuthin, I get to spend it BLOGGING…..yippeeee. It was all work work work, and BTW I aint complaining. Infact today I felt pretty weird for not waking up early in the morning and not going to work. I have to say that working with an International Organisation that is involved in the Iraqi elections is pretty interesting and very educational at the same time.

I’m optimistic, but I feel like I want to cry.

Hi, I’m back.. We came back to Mosul since yesterday. I and HNK agreed to have a day on computer for each in every two days, and I have to start working on my program and finish it before school starts again on the 2nd th of February. I don’t know if we’re going to be able to go to school on that date because it’s so close to the elections, and many schools have been used as centers of elections.. I guess we can start to count how many of those will be bombed. It might be interesting for you to know that none of us got his/her voting card!! There are rumors that gunmen took them from the source.. In Baghdad they did receive them, but only very few of them got correct information about them on the card, one woman of the whole family was categorized as a female! And they say that those cards are being sold and bought (I also read about this in Riverbend’s blog).
