Shalash il 3iraqi..

Some of the best short-stories i read since the war..Were signed by Shalash il 3iraqi..
stories that come "right from the hood", with extremely simple characters, and extremely difficult language if you are not Iraqi but actually it's the language of the most simple people in Iraq, if you are a foreigner, you need to study Arabic for two years, and then Iraqi for 12 years, and then live among Iraqis for 20 years, to understand all the words he uses, yet, the content is so simple, speaks out the mind of the regular Iraqi person in the street, and very humorous too.
I always wanted to know where they come form and how they spread so quickly, not anymore though:

Ladies and Gentlemen, it's my honor to introduce , gathered and published by Imad Khadduri.

The blog is in Arabic, I suggest you drop the idea of trying a translation program because it might get a severe headache and explode.
enjoy it!
ps: you can also check the blog where he put the reviews and the articles other people wrote about the phenomena of Shalash il Iraqi..
and I thought I was the one with the biggest ego! haha:)

Talisman gate

"Welcome to my blog. This is the place where I explore issues like whether Nostradamus had predicted the whole Zarqawi phenomena, and is Walid Jumblat the real Hariri killer. In other words, this space is devoted to all the stuff that would peg me a crank should I try to put it out in print. But what the hell, journalistic credibility is way too over-regarded. Plus, blogging is an exercise in vanity; it is the joy-ride of ego-trips. So, excuse my pompous self-righteousness, and try to enjoy your stay."
"The purpose of this blog is to help me write a book about the Middle East by the end of 2006. Expect it to be messy and bi-lingual."

Nibras Kazimi, a "visiting Scholar at the Hudson Institute in Washington DC" has started a new blog.. Check it out!

To Iraqi Rebel

To Iraqi Rebel,

If it happens and you're reading this, please know that I really appreciate your blog..
I tried to comment, but it seems you forget to moderate, or else you shouldn't have 0 comments!!
I tried to e-mail, and there is no e-mail?

I just thought I'd tell you there's no other way to tell you that we like the blog other than posting about it, and you might not be reading this!!


Read him if you want, you're going to enjoy it!
