  1. Indian, Palestinian or Dutch, who cares? He and his likes can keep dreaming. Saddam and his days are over and nothing will ''bring it back'', and Maliki, he'll be PM for a quite a time, so get used to Shia rule. Enjoy this picture by the way :D
  2. Hawraaa!! Im really sorry for my very late reply, but I havent been on SC for a very long time. Shokran ukhti for your wished and I wish you and she3at Amir al Mo2mineen the same (L)

  3. Why dont you get in touch with him again?
  4. Saddam's legacy..... There is alot of work in Iraq, the money is there but there is also alot of corruption. I'm still very optimistic, Iraq in 2006 was better than Iraq 2002 and Iraq right now is better than Iraq in 2006.
  5. Words of wisdom, I like your posts Noah! Now lets see if ''Syrian Sister'' will reply to your post for a change. I doubt it though. The Saddami Baathi flag she has in her profile says enough about her and her views.
  6. Ooh Mushu dont exaggerate. Its not that bad, atleast Central Iraq isnt. I spent last Ramadhan in Iraq and it was not that hard. Raa7 t3e6sheen hwaya but dont forget fu6oor is much earlier than here. Dont worry Eid in Iraq will make you forget everything. Enjoy your time, remember us in your ziyara and dont forget to take loads of pics and post em here. Aaah you´re so lucky, you will visit Imam Ali (as)
  7. LOL la3ad leesh matro7een and whats ''sha gool i3lach''? :P
  8. I visit Iraq every summer every year and I know that many places are like that in Iraq and that we have alot to do in our country. But I have seen images like thgis in other parts in the world, even in the US or Europe. The point of this whole thread is to show the PROGRESS in Iraq and I mentioned this a dozen times, we have a long long way to see Iraq like we want to but atleast we are on the right track. If these pictures dont ''represent'' Iraq what county do they represent? UAE, Zimbabwe or China? So I ask you to remove these pictures and open a new topic if you want and show ''the true face of Iraq''. I also dont want any discussion about Iraq´s situation or the US invasion in this topic, we have another topic for it.
  9. Baghdad International Flower Festival And a video
  10. Those days are over, so keep on dreaming ya Okhty el Soreya
  11. Geeft niet :) Hoe gaat het nu met je moeder? InshAllah goed?


  12. Not all of them are Baathis Mushu, although the protests are motivated by Baathis. We've had a discussion about the protests in Iraq a couple of weeks ago.
  13. Im from babylon :P LOL JK Well I was born in Iraq but I live in Europe, Holland to be exact. You live in Sydney? Hows it there?

  14. Wallah? MashAllah da nekthar yoom 3an yoom :P From where in Babylon?

  15. Lol, how awesome. Allah yhaneekom inshAllah!
  16. True Mushu but its better to wear one even if you're not visiting the shrines. Because almost everyone wears them. But I went two years ago so I dont know how Iraqi women dress now so I guess the best thing is to go and see for yourself. But with an Iraqi abaya people will not notice you're a foreigner right away. People were telling me in Iraq they noticed I was not living there by the way I walk so go figure Plus it will safe you from men's eyes (who are very annoying in the ME and Iraq is not an exception). I advice you to just go and see what women wear over there and decide for yourself. The best thing to wear is either an Iraqi abaya or mantu or Khaleeji abaya (which is what I prefer) Is your husband Iraqi if you dont mind me asking?:)
  17. Iraq forces attack Iranian PMOI rebels at Camp Ashraf Iranian exiles accused Iraqi PM Nouri Maliki of ordering the attack Iraqi forces have attacked a camp housing an Iranian exile group north of Baghdad, home to about 3,500 people. Reports suggest at least three died in the clashes between troops and the People's Mujahideen Organisation of Iran (PMOI) at Camp Ashraf. The PMOI said more than 25 were killed and many wounded in the raid, but Iraqi officials have disputed the figures. US Defence Secretary Robert Gates expressed concern and urged Iraq to show restraint. The PMOI, a guerrilla group that opposes Iran's Shia cleric leaders, is considered a terrorist group by the US and Iran. 'Unprecedented murder' The Iraqi army says that it went into Camp Ashraf, in Diyala province, to confront stone-throwers, and that the clashes were limited. But the PMOI described the raid, which took place early on Friday, as a full-scale military assault with armoured vehicles. I can't deny the occurrence of injuries among residents of Camp Ashraf, because we do not have information from inside the camp" said Ali al-Dabbagh from the Iraqi government The PMOI said Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Maliki, under the order of Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, had committed an "unprecedented murder in Ashraf". Major Hassan al-Tamimi of the Iraqi army in Baquba, capital of the province, told AFP news agency that three people had been killed and 20 injured, among them six soldiers. But the death toll was not confirmed by the government. Iraqi government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh said Ashraf residents had thrown rocks at security forces during a "riot" and denied that Iraqi forces had opened fire. "The security forces have pushed back residents of Camp Ashraf inside the camp by force," Mr Dabbagh said. "The situation is now controlled." "I can't deny the occurrence of injuries among residents of Camp Ashraf, because we do not have information from inside the camp," he added. 'International obligations' The PMOI, also known as Mojahedin-e Khalq, set up Camp Ashraf in Iraq in the 1980s and was welcomed by then-President Saddam Hussein, who was fighting a war against Iran. The PMOI's military wing fought alongside Iraqi soldiers. Correspondents say many of the organisation's members continue to live in Camp Ashraf, to the annoyance of both Iraqi and Iranian governments. Human rights organisations say that the residents of the camp should be protected from persecution or attack. Mr Gates, who is visiting Iraq, said: "We're very concerned with reports of deaths and injuries resulting from this morning's clashes. "I urge the Iraqi government to show restraint and to live up to its commitments to treat residents of Ashraf according to Iraqi law and their international obligations." In January, a Spanish judge opened an investigation into a raid by Iraqi security forces on Camp Ashraf in July 2009 which left 11 people dead. He wanted to see whether crimes against humanity were committed. A complaint filed by human rights lawyers on behalf of relatives of the victims alleged that police and soldiers shot and beat unarmed residents of the camp so they could clear a space to build a police station there. ------------------------------------------- Iraq says Iran exiles must leave The Iranian exiles have been living in Iraq for nearly 20 years Iraq has said that several thousand opposition Iranians living in exile must leave the country. The exiles include members of the opposition organisation the People's Mujahideen of Iran (PMOI), considered a terrorist group by the US and the EU. The PMOI has renounced armed action and reportedly disarmed but Tehran has demanded their expulsion from Iraq. Baghdad said they must return to Iran or go elsewhere. The Iranians fear they will be executed if they go home. The nearly 3,500 Iranian exiles were given the news in a visit by Iraqi National Security Advisor Mowaffaq al-Rubaie to Camp Ashraf, north of Baghdad, where they have been living for two decades. "The Iraqi government is responsible for their security and it continues to implement its plans to shut down the camp and to either deport its population to their country or to a third country," the government said in a statement after the delegation's visit. "Remaining in Iraq is not an option for them." Armed history Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Maliki is due to make his fourth visit to Iran later this week and his Shia-led government has cultivated friendly ties with Tehran. It is not the first time Iraq has promised to expel the Iranians. In December 2003, the US-appointed Governing Council said the PMOI would have to leave but the order was never carried out. The PMOI formed in 1965 with the aim of toppling the Shah of Iran. The group fell out with Iran's religious leaders after the revolution of 1979 and gained sanctuary in Iraq under Saddam Hussein. During the Iran-Iraq war of 1980-88, PMOI members carried out cross-border raids into Iran. The group renounced armed action in 2001 and, after the US-led invasion of Iraq, Camp Ashraf fell under US protection. The PMOI then gave up many weapons, including tanks and armoured personnel carriers. --------- Iraq moves to shut Iranian exile camp – 5 mins ago BAGHDAD – A spokesman says Iraq has decided to shut down a camp of Iranian dissidents and move them out of the country by the end of the year. Ali al-Dabbagh said the Iraqi cabinet agreed Monday use all diplomatic ways possible to resettle the more than 3,400 residents of Camp Ashraf. It was not immediately clear what the government would do if the exiles, who are members of the People's Mujahedeen Organization of Iran, refused to go. The interview with al-Dabbagh was cut short and he could not be immediately reached for further details. The UN has long held the exiles should not be forcibly returned to Iran, where they are considered a terrorist organization because they seek to overthrow the government. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110411/...cW1vdmVzdG 9z
  18. Wa alaikom el Salam Ruqaya :) Glad to hear of non Iraqis who are interested in visiting Iraq. Well Central and Southern Iraq is relatively safe and Iraq in general is getting safer every day. My parents returned to Iraq permanently two years ago and they are very happy with the progress. I advice you to go with a group or atleast with someone who speaks Arabic. That just makes everything much easier for you. The best time to visit Iraq is from January - June. Iraq is just too warm during summer time, atleast comparing it to europe :P I wouldnt worry too much about safety issues, espcially if you are mainly interested in visiting Shia cities. I hope that answers your questions and I would be more than happy to answer any questions you have. Ma3a al salama :)

  22. How exactly is that an answer to what he said? He said ; ''The Iraqi government was elected democratically, the Iraqi people actually voted for Noor Al-Maliki.'' which is true because he was elected by Iraqis If the Iraqis want someone who is not ''completely independent'' of the West than so be it. If they realise he didnt do enough for the country and for them(It is his second term so I think the majority is happy with what he did), they can freely choose someone else during the next elections. So when is someone ''completely independent'' from the West?
  23. Asslamu Alaikom Baradar :) I suggest you watch the game first. I think we can discuss this issue after that. You keep mentioning the siege mentality. Care to explain what exactly you are reffering to? True, that one is from pre 2003 and was built during Saddam's era but most of the things we see in the pictures were built post 2003. Same goes for everything in ''the hopeful news thread''. I was not reffering to your post. I was speaking in general terms. My bad. Agreed. Its impossible to know because it didnt happen. I dont know if the IRI did but I wouldnt be suprised. Wasnt the Imam (Qudisa siruh) the only one? I do not refer to Iran when speaking about ''the ones who were silent'' during the days of Saddam. Because Iran is not the country who is sending people to blow up mosques. I mean the Arab countries who financially support the so called Muqawama and send their sons to kill innocent Iraqis.
