Just noticed Iraqi Lady in the links over at Hammorabi. Iraqi Lady is worth clicking around, there are a range of sites there, from Artist's and Writer's to Princess's and Queen's. Some of these sites are multilingual, so if you are language deficient (like me) you'll be happy to find, with a bit of a look about, some english and also soothing visuals if you can't read the script.
Iraqi Lady also has a range of news links, from Arabic CNN & BBC to Aljazeera.
Iraqi Forum for Democracy is also worth checking.
Iraqi Lady is now in the sidebar Online Culture links, and Iraqi Forum for Democracy in the reference links if you're looking for them later on.
