Yes, he is my dad

Some thought he was, some were sure, and some didn't notice.. For all of you, he's really my dad!! So, as my friend has said before, now, you have more ways to check if I'm alive :)

I've also received an e-mail from a new Iraqi blogger, he's 46 years old, and he's a writer.. He blogs in Arabic, and this is his blog: A free writer.

I'm writing a post now that I'll post later which will explain why I didn't tell you about dad before.. I'll be in Baghdad tomorrow (God's willing), enjoying my break with the big family.. And in case I didn't have a chance to write, Happy Eid everyone in advance..

Oh, and I want to draw your attention that Harith Kharrufa has decided to delete his blog, he's not writing and he won't! No enough passion in blogging.. Hasan, his brother won't blog too (He's forgotten his password and coulding delete his blog like his brother).. Kais, I'll ask him when I see him in Baghdad.. I just thought I should draw your attention to this, maybe they should be deleted from the list on the right?

I think it would be a very, very bad idea for Iraqis to delete their blogs. Firstly, these people are writing history! These are the first Iraqis to be able to speak freely to other humans across the world without fear of having their tongue cut out. I seriously recommend you speak to these bloggers and insist they do not erase history, truly beautiful history.

Great! I'm glad it doesn't have to be a secret. Have fun in the Big City.

Cheers Najma, thanks for the update (and gossip sharing).

RE keeping the blogroll up to date - a timely point for the new year and it has surfaced before, so probably needs addressing.

Firstly, AnaRki13 rest assured ~ I personally would never delete anyone from the blogroll unless they requested it. The historical aspect of old blogs existing beside new ones appeals to me, but I can understand it when someone decides to have a cleanup and removes a site they feel they've moved on from.

Secondly, with the growing number of Iraq blogs, it would be nice to have a more readable up to date directory. There are RSS feeds which individuals can taylor to personally visited blogs, but over and over again I just keep getting this feeling that there needs to be something else - a properly designed site (not that this one's improper at all) with perhaps a forum type feature.

Does anyone else have any ideas/thoughts about this?

For Immediate Release

********************************
CFL ALERT: ASK YOUR REP IN CONGRESS TO ADD THEIR NAMES TO CONGRESSMAN CONYER'S DOWNING STREET LETTER TO PRESIDENT BUSH.

TALKING POINTS:
*Please take a moment to write a letter to your representatives and ask them to sign Rep. John Conyer's letter to President Bush seeking answers about the Downing Street Memos. The Downing Street Memo is a series of highly classified documents containing the meeting minutes between Prime Minister Tony Blair and other top British government officials. These memos indicate that President Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair had already made up their mind to go to war at least a year before the invasion of Iraq--contesting public statements made by both governments that going to war with Iraq was a last resort. By
mid-March 2002, a year before the invasion of Iraq, top British officials had already resigned themselves to going to war and seemed mostly preoccupied with building international support and finding a legal justification for the attack. These memos also detail how the two countries planned to instigate the war on Iraq by placing ultimatums on Saddam that he was sure to reject and by increasing U.S. and U.K bombing raids on Iraq PRIOR to the war in order to goad Saddam
into retaliating.

*Tell your representatives that this is not a partisan issue. Democrats and Republicans alike ought to be outraged that the President lied to the American people about a war that was not necessary and has resulted in the death of 1800 Americans and one hundred thousand Iraqis.
