Ishtar at the gallows.


What kind of government hangs its women?
This is precisely what the IraNqi/American government in Baghdad is planning to do.
Three women not older than 31 are to be hanged with no trial, no legal counsel, no defence, no witnesses and obscure charges that no one has bothered to elucidate.
These three women Zainab, Liqa and Wassan are held in the Khadimyiah prison in a " predominantly shia area" (see I caught the virus too) (see articles here and here).
If you remember well, this is exactly the same place where the late President Saddam Hussein met his fate. At the gallows of the Khadimyiah prison H.Q
Another sectarian lynching is about to take place not too far from Imam al Kadhim shrine.

Ahmadinajad and Khamenae will be giving Muqtada al Sadr, Al Hakim and Maliki the highest medals of the Quds Brigades for bravery and patriotism.Those same brigades that have trained their militias in the art of rape and torture.
And they will be providing M.Al Sadr with a new set of more performing drills whilst he is hiding in Teheran or have them door delivered in Najaf.

Or maybe they should ask Mr.Cockburn to deliver them himself. Our new Lawrence of Arabia with a nasal twang, behind his red and white checkered kuffieh and carrying a copy of the New Yorker...so he can pass incognito.
Can anyone get more orientalist than that?
That partly explains his fascination with Muqtada al Sadr in his new article on Counterpunch.
Again, Cockburn proves to be the expert,par excellence,in the art of disinformation.
Read his article and you will find a good deal of his insidious twisting and turning, rock and roll style.
To start with and I shall not give Cockburn more than a few lines, he states that 70% unemployment rate in Iraq remains unchanged from the days of Saddam Hussein.
Either Cockburn cannot read or he is simply lying.
The CIA Economic report on Iraq from 1989-2003 states that the unemployment rate was 28% and not 70% as Cockburn claims.
Moreover, the unemployment rate has been steadily increasing since the "liberation" of Iraq because the American administration under the CPA had decided to monopolize ALL the following industries : Construction, Dairy, Food, Agriculture, Oil...
And when a group of Iraqi engineers from various specializations met with CPA officials in late 2003, they were told that Iraqis can settle for blue collar jobs for 150 dollars a month! Alternatively they can branch out into small enterprises and the CPA guy giving the lecture gave as an example "A mushroom farm."
"Let Iraqis grow mushrooms" he said...

Furthermore when Cockburn states that Sadr is the only anti-imperialist that needs to be included in the political process, how does he explain than more than 6 sadrists members of parliament are already actively involved in the political process? And that Sadrists are in charge of the ministries of Education, Health and Labor?
Moreover his claims that Al-Sadr family was killed by Saddam Hussein is disputable-read what Roads to Iraq has to say about that.

Moreover Cockburn fails to mention that in 2004, Muqtada al Sadr deposed his arms against 50 dollars for each of his boys only to take them up again upon directives from the hardliners in Teheran who bought him off both politically and financially and turn his arms against the Iraqi sunnis calling them "Jihadists and Wahabists".

And last but not least, when Cockburn states that the sadrists militias have not infiltrated the Iraqi Army and the Police,he is not only blatantly disinforming, he is also belying what thousands of Iraqis already know and have experienced at the hands of these street thugs. Hence disrespecting not only the victims of the "sunni pogroms" (the only truthful thing he alluded to) but also in the typical condenscending, patronizing, orientalist manner that we are so used to from both Western Academia and Journalism, discounting the Iraqis experience of their OWN reality.
I am offering Cockburn this video by Muqtada al Sadr where he mentions clearly that his boys are to infiltrate the Iraqi army followed by scenes of mass detention of what the extremist shias call "Jihadists and Wahabis" i.e. a) anyone who opposes the current state of affairs-the resistance under its different forms and b) anyone who is not a shia.
And let him find a real Iraqi to translate it for him in his Green Zone living quarters.

No wonder Cockburn was a finalist for the National Book Critic Award...He knows the music all too well!
Enough on Cockburn, he deserves no more.

Mind you Cockburn is not the only one,there are a few others who hold the same line.
They are almost teary eyed at the "oft demonization" of Muqtada al Sadr.
How about I have a few boxes of tissues sent to them special delivery. You can all sit together with Cockburn and cry your droopy eyes out. Too bad those Iraqis who had their eyes gouged out by the Al-Sadr militias will not be able to join you lot.

For those of you who can't be bothered to read daily news coming from Baghdad and yet profess themselves to be "experts" on Iraq, and that includes the "reporter" above, just so that you know, not less than 10 people were found in a Shia mosque, being tortured to death plus another 40 plus already dead. All this information can be found on www.uruknet.com.
Check the various articles gathered from different newsources.

Moreover, a reliable source informed me today that there has already been an infiltration of the Resistance by sectarian shia militias in al Anbar province for a final inner purge and I heard the same for Baghdad.
A lot of these sectarian militias are now pretending to be anti-occupation.You have been forwarned.
Furthermore, I was told and I personally cannot confirm since I did not go around personally interviewing resistance fighters, that there is a request that all of you who support the resistance to ante up your prayers and the sentence told:" We are at hour zero, this is the decisive hour, either make or break."

Back to these three young Iraqi women, daughters of this land who are going to be executed by none other than "Iraqi" men.
What horror, what a predicament, what a message for the rest of us surviving women.
It seems they were involved in anti-occupation resistance but nothing more was said and no proof given.

Their possible execution if we don't act now, should be seen in the general context of the sectarianism financed by Iran and encouraged and planned by the USA for the ultimate partition of Iraq. I will keep on repeating it until I am blue in the face.

The "pogroms of the sunnis" are part of the partition plan. Change the demography first, then partition. It is no civil war as some of you like to believe.

No shame, no morals, no ethics, nothing but a filth ridden bigoted, sectarian, fascist thugs in full cooperation with the Americans. Disgusting, nauseating sons of bitches.
Where have these bastards emerged from? The womb of Iran's government?
What kind of "men" throw the women of their own country in filthy jails and am sure these women were raped too, with no trial and no real charges?
What does that tell us about these people?
And the irony of it all? It is all done under the name of "liberation and democracy."

Where are the famous Iraqi "democrats" males and females who supposedly underwent torture under the previous regime? How come they have not filled the daily newspapers with their stale, jaded rethoric?
Or is it because they have suddenly felt an upsurge of sympathy towards their own sect?
Where are the Kanan Makiyas and his like who made millions from lamenting to the Western press about their ordeals in pre-liberated Iraq when they themselves had left Iraq since childhood?

It took someone like Saddam Hussein to keep this sectarian filth off our backs and rightly so.
In retrospect, everything he has done, mistakes and all, was absolutely correct.
Let Amnesty International or Human Rights Watch sue me now.

Execute the women of Iraq, young and old. Execute anyone who speaks out against both the occupation by America and Iran. This is it. This is what it boils down to.
Yet so many deliberately refuse to see these stark facts.
How many more Ishtars will it take?

Anyone who knows about mythology, will also know that Ishtar is not only the Goddess of fertility and love in ancient Sumerian legends but she is also the Goddess of War, capable of great cruelty and capable of foresaking her self in search of her ultimate love Tammuz.
She plunged into the underworld looking for him and resurfaced triumphant.

Daughters of Ishtar, you too will return triumphant. I do not know when, but I know you will.
I know this analogy is not of much help...and I feel totally powerless.
I know it will not bring your lives back. But when everything is being uprooted around me, pulled out from its origins, I have nothing to go back to but the ancient ones.
It may be my own helpless way of comforting myself even though I know fully well it is not of much comfort to you, daughters of Ishtar.

On the same subject of Iraq. I saw this call for action by "Troops out now", the anti-war movement, for a march on the occasion of the 4th "anniversary of the "war" i.e the invasion and occupation of Iraq.
It was no war, it was/is an occupation - call things by their names will you!
When I read it, I did not know if I should laugh or cry.
On the agenda are the following items:
- Withdrawal from Iraq - well thank you.
and listen to this:
- End colonial occupation from Africa to Asia passing by Puerto Rico and the Phillipines, Palestine, Iran, Lebanon, Venezuela, Cuba, Bolivia... wait it gets better...
- Solidarity with immigrants and Katrina survivors, stop racist policies, demand education grants...

Hey, why don't you add protesters against the rising price of cucumbers too?
You know, just to complete the picture.
Or maybe chronic back pain sufferers ...like myself for instance. Why don't you invite me to join your wonderful march? I have been suffering from back pains ever since 2003. Do you think you might have anything to do with it or should I blame Puerto Rico for being a pain in the ass?

Well, well,well...What a wonderful way to DILUTE it all...
Anyone reading this tract will say...Hmm, Ok Iraq figures about once or twice...
What a wonderful way to demand for a FIRM END TO THE OCCUPATION OF IRAQ NOW and nothing else.
The 17th of march "Anniversary" as you like to call it, should be your friggin priority...IRAQ is your PRIORITY.
And if 3 million dead and 3.7 million displaced because of YOUR government are not a priority then you are either a stupid lot or a bunch of sell outs and I would personally settle for the latter.

Back to Baghdad...
Spoke to Naeema earlier on.
-How are you?
-Al Hamdullah we are alive
-What do you mean we are alive, I know you are alive but how are you?
-The important thing is that we are alive

I put the receiver down and I simply broke down...
You know it is these sentences that come out almost automatically, in a semi unconscious mode, blurted out from some deep recess that conveys it all best.

We are alive, it does not matter how we are alive, it does not matter how we are living, it does not matter what our situation is, it does not matter what we are going through, it does not matter that we don't have water, electricity, food, jobs, hospitals, medication...the important thing is that we are alive...

This is what you have rendered us into. A people counting their breaths and making sure they are still alive.
You took the whole of Iraq, Ishtar to the gallows.
Old and young, men and women and you have hanged all of us gasping for air and thanking God for being alive.
You will never be forgiven for that, ever.
And I have no other cheek left to turn.

Postscript: This video just came out, showing what happened in Haifa Street. Massacres conducted by the Americans and the torture conducted by the Shiite militias of which Jaysh Al Mahdi that Cockburn defends. He said in his article, for Iraqis , all the militias are the Mahdi Army, they cannot differentiate .WE were waiting for that SOB to give us the nuances...F... you Cockburn.

Dear Layla, I share your pain. In the case of Iraq, there is no room for forgiveness, none at all. however much it has been said that forgiveness sets one free. Way, way into the future, this ugliness and tragedy will be remembered as clearly as the reality is today.

Everything possible MUST be done to release these three women. Please, those who are in the position to alter their destiny, do so NOW. We have witnessed enough horrors coming out of Iraq.

Thank you, dear Layla.

Death is only another stage in the journey of life...The three women you speak of were valiant and heroic in that they took-up arms against the ivaders and their puppet government...They have nothing to fear as they will be received with the peace and mercy of our Lord.

On the Iran issue...

As much as I find myself agreeing with most of what you write, I believe you are not being fair in your critiscizm of the Iraqi situation.

The problem is not with Iran...it is with IRAQIS.

Iraqis took-up arms against their own people...Iraqis collaborated with the occupation...Iraqis like Wafic Samariae and Iyad Allwai boasted about planting car bombs and killing innocent people during the sanction years...Iraqis like the husbands of Saddam's daughters betrayed the position of trust and collaborated with the west by giving military secrets during their short defection...Iraqis in the north harbored Israeli and American terrorist cells that were in opoeration well before the invasion got underway...Iraqis betrayed Udday, Qussai and Mustafa...Iraqis betrayed Taha Yaseen...Iraqis betrayed Saddam...IRAQIS - not Iranians.

Who attacked Falluja and Anbar and Talafar to help the Americans murder and rape? It was Iraqi kurds and shia and even sunnis.

Who is helping the Amereicans each and every day by being informants against the Resistance or setting-up checkpoints or raiding houses?

Iraqis.

As much as it is painful to say, let the truth be known...the enemy was and is from within long before it ever came from abroad.

Let these traitorous Iraqis know that we have their number and that they are exposed to us...Let them know that the earth, in all its vastness, can never hide them from us...Let them know that there is ABSOLUTLY NO JUSTIFICATION or excuse for what they are doing and what they have done...Let then know that they will be hunted down and fought and killed for the dogs that they are.

Iraqi spies, agents, collaborators, puppets and mercenaries are the # 1 enemy of Iraq...Let that truth be known.

Anonymous above,
I agree with you 100% and am not absolving Iraqi traitors whether they are sunnis, shias, kurds or christians...
I also contend that these traitors have been financed, backed, trained,by foreign countries.And you know who they are: USA,Iran,GB,Israel to implement their partition plan. under the name of federalism.

Layla,

It is sad that women would have to go through life in any manner that they would be less then anyone else. After all we all come from Mother Earth the giver and taker of life itself. I was raised to respect women and make man earn it.

Wovoka, Paitute

"You ask me to plow the ground. Shall I take a knife and tear my mothers bosom? Then when I die she will not take me to her bosom when to rest.

You ask me to dig for stones! Shall I dig under her skin for bones? Then when I die I cannot enter her body to be borned again.

You ask me to cut grass and make hay and sell it and be rich like the white man, but how dare I cut my mother's hair?

I want my people to stay with me here. All the dead men will come back to life again. Their spirits will come back to their bodies again. We must wait here in the homes of our fathers and be ready to meet them in the bosom of our mother."


Big Thunder Wabanaki Algonquin

"The Great Spirit is in all things, he is in the air we breathe. The Great Spirit is our Father, but the Earth is our Mother. She nourishes us, that which we put into the ground she returns to us..."


To me this also refers to all women for if we do not treat them right and with respect we as the human race will answer to what we do to them. For without them like earth itself we would not be.

Like I said women has my respect men have to earn it. To all you men it's time to smell the roses that they give us and treat them right. End of the story!!!

Your Savage American Warrior!

Salam Layla,

The "anonymous" comment above is mine - sorry for forgetting to add my name.

You are correct, foreign/regional powers have a hand in the mess, but I believe we, as the voice of liberation, are letting the Iraqis get somewhat off the hook.

For example, when I watch a channel like Al-Mustakilla or Al-Zawra, I see the focus is 100% on the occupation and somewhat on its puppet government...To my mind, people who are watching these channels or reading such blogs would not realize that they themselves are part of the problem and thus would miss the message that they need to change their behaviour.

Look at Palestine to see a live example of where things could end-up if the real culprits (the compromisers & collaborators) are not made aware of the gravity of thier actions.

Anyway, I am just adding my 2 cents worth...You keep doing what you are doing for your efforts are truly inspirational and a model for us all.

Anonymous above,
I wrote my reply in haste but now I would like to add more to what you said.
I reiterate, yes I think Iraqis are ALSO responsible but not solely responsible. You said I am being unfair in my criticisms of Iran.
Why? If you know about contemporary Iranian and Iraqi history, you will also know that since the advent of the Khomeini, the first item on his agenda was REGIME CHANGE IN IRAQ.
And this has been ACHIEVED and now we have a FULL SHIITE Govt exactly as the Iranians wanted it without them having to lift a finger...Can you deny this fact ????
Israel too wanted a REGIME Change and Sharon promised that the scuds in 1991 would not be forgotten and that he will be reserving when and how to retribute.
The USA and its lapdog GB wanted a regime change too...
I do not think these 3 interests were purely coincidental...
I leave you now to make your own deductions.

Dearest Layla,

This is exactly what my husband says (he's Iraqi), but I still can't accept this as being 'the reality', it's too horrible to accept. I wish we could put the clocks back...


To all the Iraqis who were plotting against the Iraqi regime while being abroad I say:

SHAME ON YOU TRAITORS FOR SELLING AND DESTROYING IRAQ, I WILL NEVER FORGIVE YOU!
ARE YOU HAPPY NOW??? DO YOU FEEL LIBERATED???

Layla i have to agree somewhat with anonymous about the Arabs being traitors. How many times have there been Arab dogs who have licked the jews/yanks/safavids ass? Way too many to mention here, suffice it to say if there weren't so many dogs (as we call them here) the Arab world wouldn't be where it is now. No wonder Saddam (may he rest in peace) was so paranoid about his own people.

Layla, this is time number 4. I'll try again.

Iraq is not finished. How can the birthplace of civilisation be gone? It will continue, maybe not with the same name, but it will go on.

My heritage is Assyrian. I listen to my Mother talk about Iraq and Iran all the time. Her's are mostly happy stories, she doesn't like to dwell on the past. We have lost family there, very sad. I watched your videos, you must surely be in hell.

Saddam was not such a nice man, but he knew what to do to keep the factions apart. Mum said to me that if the US remove Saddam, they will unleash the gates of hell.

Meanwhile, I remain safe in Australia. My thoughts are with you. I will try and keep in touch. My real name is Angel, not Andrea. And I am also old enough to know better.
Anonymous said…
Dear Layla,

I do not deny the statements you have made...My only point was that "it takes two to tango", and without the help of Iraqis, the enemies of Iraq could not have acheived 10% of what they have done.

Are you aware that all the oil stations/facilities in Iraq were wired to blow by order of Saddam (may he rest in peace)? And that it was US/UK and Australian special forces that managed with the assistance of Iraqi collaborators who worked inside these plants to seize control and disable all the explosives prior to Bush's air attack commencing?

That is why I think we should target our message to all of Iraq's enemies (internal and extrenal).

Layla, I think this is try number 5 for this post.

Iraq is not finished, the birth place of civilisation can not be gone. It will continue, maybe with another name.

My background is Assyrian, my Mother doesn't talk much about the destruction of the nation. She speaks mostly of the happy times.

I have watched your videos. You must surely be in hell. Saddam was not so nice sometimes, but he knew how to keep the lid on the factions. He did what he did for a reason, I understand that.

I am safe here is Australia, but I will think of you. My real name is Angel, not Andrea and I am also old enough to know better.

I was thinking last night about your post on "love is in the air".
You touched on many areas of female oppression in Iraq.

Shit like this is what sickens me about life in general.
The women of Iraq are forced to cover from head to toe, having only a small opening from which to look out of. And by nature the entire lot of them are most likely good, decent women with moral and ethical values.

I have had many experiences with intercultural relationships and so I am quite sure of the things I write about.

Iraqi women forced into seclusion and "shame" and have done nothing.
And there are other areas of the world where females are treated with equal contempt.

But here, in USA, 90% of the women are absolute sluts. They dress in ways to draw attention to themselves. They flirt with as many men as possible so as to feed their sick ego's.
Damaged from parental abandonment, parental betrayal, divorce, media, music, television. All of which promote immorality. The women of USA (for the most part-90%) parade themselves about like side shows at a circus. Enjoying every look they get from the eyes of lustful men.
Even the women who immegrate here become "Americanized" and feel "free" to dress loosly, unlike in their home land, or they revel in defying their boy friend or husband unlike in their homeland where they would taste the back of the mans hand if they disrespected him.

"Oh I am a woman...look I have breasts and an ass. Look, look at what I have to offer!"-This is the general sentiment in Amorica. (purposfully mispelled)

That is why at one time I consider becoming an expatriot and leaving USA and not coming back.
I would gladly trade this American bullshit "Wal Mart, Levi's and Coca Cola" for the simple pleasures of life such as monogomy and the love of an actual tight knit family.

And I certainly wish I could exchange Americas women for the women of Iraq.
Let the American whores suffer the opression and disrespect they deserve. And on the other side allow the Iraqi women to get the respect and admiration that they deserve.


On topic of THIS particular post-google CARLA FAYE TUCKER Layla.
And you will see how bush mocked her as her sentenced her to death when he was governor of Texas.

I don't say Carla did not deserve to die but she (like president Saddam, rest his eternal soul)did not deserve to be mocked as she awaited execution.

I have more I would like to say about things. But I become sick with rage and oddly apathy as well when all things are considered.

I get what good I can find here, but Surely the other side must be a better place for us all.
This whole world is sickening to me and I do not believe "attitude" has a damn thing to do with it.
A person can have the brightest attitude on the planet and it is not going to change outside influencial factors.

It is what it is...

Take care & stay safe Layla.

It's very interesting to read today's posts, particularly in relation to some Iraqis' involvement in this whole mess. It seems such a conincidence that, only today, someone who does not access this site or follows too much about Iraq said exactly the same thing to me as some posters here.

Layth is right - messages need to be targeted to both internal and external enemies of Iraq - certainly, everything that is happening in Iraq today would never have been possible without collaboration with traitors from the inside. May they have to answer for their crimes some day soon. Iraq was offered as a gift to the barbarians.

The video shows that the massacres and horrific and graphic torture took place in Haifa street by the Shiite militias of Badr,Muqtada Al Sadr and Jala Al Saghir under the benevolent eye of the American army who were busy shelling civilians houses.
All the victims in the videos are sunnis. Someone forward this video to cockburn and chomsky the strong defenders of Muqtada al Sadr and his militias.

They spoke Armenian at home, even though she grew up in Iran. She says to tell you she is part of the 5 clans. Hers was the Baz. She wants to know if you have heard of the Legend of Ghozal?

Not all shias are sectarians and not only shias are bad.
We have intermarried for decades and our families are mixed sunni shia and some christians muslims...
Those who are wrecking havoc are the sectarian ones who were exiled in Iran or are heavily financed, trained and backed by her...It is important to make that distinction.
These are the politicized sectarian ones part of the so called iraqi govt.

Salam Layla,

Yes, I read it in a book written by a Special forces guy that one of their top missions was to capture the Iraqi oil fields and they had to be real quick because the platforms had been wired by Saddam's army. the Special forces guy spoke of Iraqi collaborators at the oil platforms being a major asset in the mission.

I could not find the book's name (I must have lent it to someone), but I did manage to find the information on the net as evidenced by this admission from none other than Paul Wolfowitz:

"Wolfowitz cited Poland's prominent military role in Iraq. Poland was one of four countries that sent troops into combat on the first day of Operation Iraqi Freedom, he said. Polish special forces helped to capture oil platforms that had been rigged with explosives before they could cause destruction."

"It seems you left out some of those women have children with them in jail". Again sorry for my badly worded post.

As for the video, is there no video in which there is a translation for what they are saying?
Example: the child at the end? Was that his guts laying by his side? What were they doing to him? I heard them say BismAllah, why?

Layla onto another video, the sadr video, would you be prepared to translate what he says and i will make a video with English subtitles that you provide?

Glad I got to you, jr. Please go and wash your mouth with soap - a brain transplant would also help. You are representative of all the occupation scum present in Iraq today - I hope you have managed to view the Haifa Street video, but your level of comprehension may just not exist so you wouldn't understand it.

Calling Layla a bitch gets you nowhere, scum. People like you belong to the gutters - how did you manage to crawl out?

Dear Layla, do keep Jr's comments - it helps to show his/her IQ and they stick out like a sore thumb!!!!!

So why don't you post this on your lil boring website and show your fans how the same Iraqis who your baath party symathizer malcom leguche or whatever the hell his names is portrayed as angels who wanted peace with iran and wished them well when the coup de tat of a revolution happened, anounced the use of what they called "insecticides" on battle fields. We all know the Chauvinism that Saddam displayed against Iranians, how he declared to pay off 2500 dollars to any iraqi that divorced Iraqis of Iranian decent from "Pure" Soosmar khor Arab Iraqis, or I should say pure as a monkeys asshole Iraqis. Here is the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?search=&mode=related&v=CtjLKInn2Ls enjoy your fantasies about Arab inventing Algebra and proudcing the finest scientists of ancient times. like Ibn Sina who just happens to be Iranian,and Khawarazmi and Zia and Khayam and ..... I can keep going. But because of twisted dillusional chauvinisitc Khar Arabs like Aflek and Hussein the brain less who named a hospital after Avecina yet called Persians Midgets, you believe his shit. I wonder what Saddam would call me a 6-2 Iranian, standing infront of his beer belly illeterate ass? Who would be the midget then the smelly arab fuck whos pushing up Daisies now!!!!!!!!! lol Enjoy your hell and rot in it you son of a bitch

Salam,

On a different subject: Al-Qaeda in Iraq. I have always believed that Al-Qaeda (post 9-11) was a US tool used to carry out the dirty work of the intellegence agencies such as murder and bombings and the creation of sectarien strife.

Yesterday, while watching Al-Zawra, I read a very significant piece of news which is that an Al-Qaeda operative blew himself amidst a grouping of Resistance Fighters from the 20th revolution bridage killing a total of 26 Resistance Fighters.

Clearly this event seals any doubt that Al-Qaeda is a US/Zion front and thus places them at the top of the list of Iraq's enemies along with the occupation, the mercenaries and the collaborators.

Layla and Little Deer,

It sounds as if Jr the Drunk just got the shit slapped out of him for he has no control over his mouth. Maybe he should try to make friends so he wont have to come to this site. If he does not like what is being said here he should not waste his time with us.

We know where our hearts are and anything he could add is worthless to us as what we have to say to him. If he was a caring person he might want to know what the truth is instead of ranting about things that has no value.

You can alway tell the wisdom of a man by their depth and when they know when to be quiet and learn. Respect, Respect, Respect!!! This is what I want and what I will give to all peoples and nations for we are all related.

Greed no matter what nation or people is not a good thing. Power over another be it woman or man is not a good thing.

By the way Jr talks on this site I fell sorry for his mate and if he has none I truely understand why, for you must be a friend to have a friend.

Bless my sisters and may you walk in the loop of peace.

Your brother of another nation,
Savage American Warrior

Do you realise what a miserable human being you are? And that calling you a human being is a huge compliment? Thank God that not all Americans are like you otherwise there will not be any American human beings.
Scum!

So much for your opinion that Persians are racist towards Azeris, they are the same race read and learn Arab woman


Another recent study of the genetic landscape of Iran was completed by a team of Cambridge geneticists led by Dr. Maziar Ashrafian Bonab (an Iranian Azarbaijani).[44] Bonab remarked that his group had done extensive DNA testing on different language groups, including Indo-European and non Indo-European speakers, in Iran.[38] The study found that the Azerbaijanis of Iran do not have a similar FSt and other genetic markers found in Anatolian and European Turks. However, the genetic Fst and other genetic traits like MRca and mtDNA of Iranian Azeris were identical to Persians in Iran.

Ultimately, genetic tests reveal that while the Iranian peoples show numerous common genetic markers overall, there are also indications of interaction with other groups, regional variations and cases of genetic drift. In addition, indigenous populations may have survived the waves of early Aryan invasions as cultural assimilation led to large-scale language replacement (as with some Kurds, Hazaras and others). Further testing will ultimately be required and may further elucidate the relationship of the Iranian peoples with each other and various neighboring populations.

Faced with extremely fascinating notes on the historical past of this region, both by Layla and other posters, one can only say that you (collectively) have so much to teach the rest of the world. Such an incredibly rich past, with common threads interweaving across borders and peoples, thrown to the four winds by the present. I truly wish this did not have to happen because we are going to leave future generations in the Middle East with nothing. Destroyed lands, destroyed lives...is it worth it in the end?

Can Peace not be found in this truly beautiful region of the world? Dialogue, understanding, humility and acceptance of wrong done may be a start? Just a suggestion because it hurts to see this all destroyed, most of the time to whet man's ego.

May we witness the miracle of Peace...

Cikku, don't bother with this jr. This is just attention seeking as he must have missed out on much during his childhood. He's probably an abandoned child. As you may notice, he's even using the Jr. for his name!!!!

As with children, once they are ignored, they stop seeking attention, and so with this 'baby' here! Go play with your toys, Jr., the adults are busy.

Dumb bitch, retard...do you really think I care what a scumbag like you want to call me jr?

You say that you are not American and I have no evidence to believe otherwise but wherever you come from, your attitude towards life and the language that use you smack of American arrogance

Jr coyote,

Did your parents have any children that lived because you sure are brain dead. And as I said before I don't care what side of the tree you swing on.

Coyote you can beat on me all you want if it keeps you from beating a woman up the weak person that you are. Answer one thing did your dad beat your mom and teach you these things?

"Grow a spine so you can walk as a real man!"

Just a tip from your uncle savage.
