Subject: More about Halabja

[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ]

By Jude Wanniski

It seldom happens that I can  report "news" to you, as opposed
to "news analysis," but in the last few  hours I've received messages
from my Iraqi contact in London with important  news that has not yet
made the world press. As most of you know, I have for  the last two
years argued that whatever else Saddam Hussein did for good or  ill
as Iraq's president since 1978, there is no evidence that he
committed genocide. That he "never gassed his own people," i.e., the
Iraqi Kurds, which has been an assertion that has been repeated so
often  by President Bush, Vice President Cheney and the American
press that I'm  sure 99.9% of the people believe it is gospel.

The news from Mohammed  Al-Obaidi today is that the team prosecuting
Saddam for crimes against  humanity has dropped the genocide
charge "due to insufficient evidence."  Al-Obaidi assures me the news
is true, and if it is, we should be learning  about it soon from the
news media. It will further complicate the  administration's problems
in Iraq, as it had been relying on the genocide  charge to
justify "regime change" in Baghdad when the other rationales - WMD
and Al Qaida connections - failed. I may be wrong, but if this turns
out  to be true, it would be a positive development in resolving the
conflict in  Iraq sooner, rather than later.  Once the U.S. press
corps focuses on  the issue, it would force President Bush to re-
examine his own assumptions  about the rationale for unilateral
action and make it easier for him to  shift gears toward greater
international involvement in resolving the  several conflated issues
in the Middle East.

Here is the note I got  from Al-Obaidi (who has been in exile in
London for 20 years and is no fan  of Saddam, but who has been among
those who have insisted there was no  genocide committed by his

Dear Jude: I have just been  informed by Mr. Al-Khasawnah, Chief
lawyer of Saddam`s legal team, that  after the Iraqi lawyer, Mr.
Khalil Al-Dulaimi met with Saddam a couple of  days ago, the American
legal authority in Iraq informed the lawyer that they  have dropped
the charges of Halabja and genocide in the south against Saddam  due
to insufficient evidence.

This clearly indicates that the  information the legal team had about
the responsibility of what happened in  Halabja lies on Iran and not
Iraq and made the American authority drop this  charge against him.

Best regards

Fallujah  - The Refugee Disaster & Refugee Work

Donna  Mulhearn, Electronic  Iraq

20 December  2004

The statistics on the whiteboard looked frightening.  There were columns of
Arabic words in black pen and rows of various  numbers in bright red.
Asterisks, arrows, ticks and crosses. The  whiteboard squiggles presented a=
that appeared chaotic and  overwhelming. But still it did not convey the hu=
horror of the Fallujah  refugee situation.

We were in the offices of the Iraqi Red  Crescent Society, the group now
grappling with the disaster of an entire  city becoming homeless in a war z=
one -a
disaster within a disaster.

Ra'id, my Iraqi friend and helper could not wait to start work  helping the
people of Fallujah.

"This is the best work to do now  in Iraq," he said punching the air with
even more than his usual  high-level enthusiasm.

"The Iraqi people have big emotion for the  people of Fallujah and the
Australian people do too."

Ra'id, 33,  spent three months in Australia this year and personally felt t=
deep  concern Australians have for the Iraqi people. He is keen to convey
this  concern to his fellow citizens who are suffering the most, the Falluj=

With fundraising from Australia, our little organisation, Our Home  =E2=80=
=93 Iraq,
would be able to help some of these people.

So we started  by seeking advice from the ones who know what they are talki=
about. The  Iraqi Red Crescent Society is the group most aware of the
situation and  how best to help.

When we arrived outside the Red Crescent office,  we immediately got a tast=
of the task ahead as we were mobbed a group of  woman and children waiting

"Can you help us?" they asked.  "We are from Fallujah, we need so many thin=

Their faces  were etched with lines of stress; their eyes were desperate,
their clothes  were thin and dirty.

"Please, when we left it was warmer and now  it is so cold and we have no

Inside International  Relations Manager, Mr Mazin Salloum told us that Red
Crescent staff  estimate that more than 200,000 people from Fallujah were n=
'internally  displaced'.

That's a population bigger than Newcastle or  Wollongong!

He said a large number had sought refuge in four or  five towns around
Fallujah, many had swam across the river or travelled by  foot to get to th=
e towns.
Others found their way to Baghdad.

That's like the residents of Newcastle desperately converging on  Cessnock,
Maitland, Kurri Kurri, and Raymond Terrace by swimming down the  Hunter Riv=
or marching along the New England Highway.

Mr Salloum  said the accommodation in these towns ranged from sleeping on t=
ground  under trees, to make-shift tents to the floors of mosques, schools
and  empty buildings.

"They don't like to be in tents," he assured me,  not really needing to. I'=
assumed as much. I had been to Fallujah before  and seen the many large, co=
comfortable houses. I wouldn't want to swap  it for a cold, concrete floor

And there were no facilities  to support the throng of humans in the
near-freezing conditions. No power,  hot water, gas or kerosene.

So it's camping out in Cessnock but  without the amenities block! Imagine
living in these conditions with your  grandmother, your mother-in-law, your
cousins and all their children - and  not for the Christmas holidays, but
indefinitely. And with nothing.

In Baghdad, the Fallujah families converged on mosques; some  camped on the
lawns of the university, others found rooms with families or  in bombed-out

Mr Salloum said, on average, 15 families  a day came to the Red Crescent
office asking for help.

"They ask  specifically for blankets, heaters and food," he said.

"When they  left Fallujah it was still warm. Now it is cold and they have n=
warm  clothes or blankets to cope with the temperatures," he said.

"When  you have to run, it is impossible to take everything with you."

That's the predicament for those outside Fallujah. Inside it's  worse. Far

Red Crescent staff report that dogs are still  eating the decomposing bodie=
that litter the streets. Raw sewage is  flowing through neighbourhoods. The=
is no power or running water. People  are starving, one family forced to ea=
flour for three days.

Staff  met two old women who could not leave before the attacks because the=
had  no relatives outside Fallujah and no where to go. They survived, but a=
gravely ill.

The Red Crescent has set up a small office inside the  city and try to get =
each day with medicines, fresh food and water.  Entry is often refused by U=
forces because of what they call: "military  operations."

When I asked Mr Salloum to share more stories from  inside Fallujah, he

"I don't want to make a problem.  There are many stories, but telling these
stories publicly has caused  trouble for us.

"Trouble?" I asked.

"We cannot risk losing  the cooperation of the military..."

I didn't press him on the  matter. It was clear. The Red Crescent was being
pressured and censored by  the US forces.

"This is not a natural disaster," he said. "There  are no politics in a
natural disaster. This is war and we are caught in  the middle."

As I left the building his words kept ringing in my  ears.

"This is not a natural disaster."

The women were  still waiting outside; their faces more desperate, their ey=
more hollow.

"This is not a natural disaster."

We spoke with the women,  took their details and told them we would provide
blankets, heaters and  food for their families.

"I am sorry," one young mother said to me  in English as we were leaving, h=
head low with shame.


I touched her arm and blinked away the tears. My emotion stole my  voice fr=
me so I had to whisper: "Don't be sorry."

This is not a  natural disaster.

The words started pounding in my head. This is a  man-made disaster. Someon=
made this happen. Someone planned this. Someone  executed this.

This is not a natural disaster.

"I'm sorry"  I told her as we left.

Your pilgrim

Subject: [Peace&Justice] Chomsky supports IRC, so should you

Dear IRC Supporters,

Please join me in congratulating the Interhemispheric Resource Center in ce=
lebration of its 25th anniversary. I ask you to support our common struggle=
 by donating generously to the IRC, as the organization begins its second q=
uarter-century under its new name, International Relations Center.

There are three reasons why I support the IRC and ask that you do the same:

For 25 years, the IRC has kept a close eye on the evolving manifestations a=
nd impacts of U.S. global hegemony.

Let me give you a few examples: the IRC=92s early focus on Washington=92s r=

constructive agenda; and its efforts, through its Right Web project, to spe=
arhead research and analysis about the key figures and organizations shapin=
g the radical agenda of the Bush White House.

The IRC has demonstrated a consistent internationalist position.

Whether dealing with global economic policy or security relations, the IRC =

 The IRC has committed itself, through its Foreign Policy In Focus project,=
 to work toward the creation of a new U.S. foreign policy shaped by genuine=
 internationalist principles and embraced by the vast majority of the U.S. =

The IRC forms a critical part of a progressive infrastructure fighting the =
current right-wing assault.

During the past three decades, the right wing has created a formidable arra=

(7) Appendices A, B and C.
(1) The formation of the Iraqi Founding Congress (IFC):

This is an assembly of parties and groups that was formed 8 months ago
and encompasses both the secular and the religious spectrum (Muslim and
Christian).  The Congress represents an attempt to combat the current
sectarian and ethnic tenor of Iraqi politics which the occupation has
created and is a true expression of the determination of Iraqis to face
up to the divisive policies and ongoing attempts to stir ethnic division
and the fragmentation of Iraq. The IFC stands for Iraqi unity, rejection
of sectarianism and dictatorship and seeks true transparent democracy
and a fair and non-corrupt re-construction of Iraq. It also opposes the
occupation and calls for cessation of atrocities against the Iraqi
(Announcement to boycott the elections - see Appendix A)

(2) Boycotting the Elections:

(A) There has been increasing numbers of Iraqi organisations boycotting
the forthcoming elections.  Recently, a meeting of political, religious
and community groups together with intellectuals, joined in their
opposition to the occupation, met on 17 November in Um El Qura Mosque,
Baghdad.   Following the meeting there was an unanimous agreement and an
announcement to boycott the planned elections in January 2005 promoted
by the occupation.

The reasons given for the boycott are:- (translated from Arabic by the
translation team - Iraqi Diaspora).

1.      The elections will not express the true will of the people;
neither result in their desire for true independence and democracy as
long as it is based on the Transitional Administrative Law, imposed by
the occupier.  The majority of political, religious and independent
authorities therefore rejected the proposed elections on the basis that
it harbours considerable risks on the future, unity and dominion of
2.      The attacks on Iraq's cities including Najaf, Karbala, Samara,
Mosul, Baghdad, Sadr City, Adhamiya, and more recently the vicious
assault on Falluja, constitute a major obstacle facing the political
process that is taking place under the domination of the occupation.

The meeting stated that:
'We have considered the impact on Iraq of the American occupation; of
what the Iraqi people continue to face and the far-reaching effects of
the mayhem and crisis on their livelihood.  We consider that the
occupation targets Iraq's very existence and that of future generations
and seeks to dismantle its national, religious, and moral bonds and ties
whilst trying to paralyse both its standing and decision-making process
by removing its ability to think, to rationalise and to act effectively.
This requires a true understanding of the dangerous realities of the
occupation and the activation of a national and genuine will to resist
it. We believe that these elections will not be free and fair and with
our knowledge of the high possibility of them being rigged or fraudulent
because of the absence of satisfactory baseline statistics for the
election process and the deficiencies of the security forces to protect
its citizens together with the failure of the state organisations in
running its affairs.
        We also know that the plan has been formulated to trap the
honest nationalistic forces opposing the occupation by encouraging them
to participate in the election and then prevent them from winning in
order to impart legitimacy to the occupier and whoever will represent
the occupier after the elections.  This is with our absolute knowledge
that the results have already been pre-determined in the interests of
the collaborators whom the occupiers wish to win.
        We therefore announce, based on the above, our boycott of the
elections and call upon all our people to do the same and inform you
that other parties and groups who have not been able to attend the
meeting will later join the patriotic forces who are making this
        Long live Iraq free and independent.'

Baghdad, 17 November 2004 (4th Shawal 1425 Hijri).
Signatories - see appendix (B).

(B) In addition, more than one hundred Iraqi intellectuals from
different political and religious spectrum in Iraq signed a petition
addressing what they called the 'election game' that has been called for
the end of January 2005.

The petition stated: (translated from Arabic by the translation team,

We, the undersigned Iraqi writers, journalists, opinion holders,
political activists, state as much as we believe in a decisive form that
the true democracy is the safest framework for the achievement of peace
and social security in our country, and that an irreproachable election
is the only method that will emphasis the will of our people in choosing
their representative and government and transform the governmental
positions from a privilege to a responsibility, we reject by the same
magnitude what is happening in terms of slaughter, massacres and daily
war crimes against the people of Iraq under the umbrella of achieving
democracy and the preparation of suitable conditions for the election
and we hold what is called the Interim Government responsible for
providing local cover for this democracy of killing.

We therefore declare the following: - (translated from Arabic by the
Postmaster of Iraqi Diaspora).

1.      We fully support the position of the patriotic parties, groups
and movements which met in Um Al Qura Mosque on 17 November 2004 and
their decision to boycott the election 'game' that has been announced by
the occupation forces and its local stooges and we believe that its aim
is to falsify the will of our people and legitimise perpetual
2.      We demand the 'Interim Government', if it truly wants to achieve
transparency in the election, to stop its oppressive practices against
our people, and the assassinations and arrests of the citizens who call
for an end to the occupation and allow them to express their views in
total freedom and to release all detainees.
3.      We demand the Interim Government to ending the cover-up that
provides legitimacy to the occupation forces that plays with the truth
and pretends that its stay in Iraq, and its practise of ugly massacres
against our people are the national will, and to withdraw its request
for the occupying forces to stay.  We strongly and forcefully reject the
democracy of tanks and gunship.
4.      We demand the formation of a transparent commission from local
experts of all persuasions to include both the peaceful and armed
resistance, to legislate a new administrative law to replace the
existing Transitional Administrative Law that has been imposed by the
occupier, which only serves the interests of the occupier and excludes
national interests.  In addition, to legislate a new and fair law for
the elections which can prevent counterfeiting the will of the Iraqi
people together with setting up committees from known and reputable
people from all persuasions to observe and supervise the elections
together with Arabic, Islamic and international independent electoral
observers, who do not submit to the American will or control.

We call upon our people to be vigilant of this 'game' aimed at forging
its will and we issue a call to escalate the protests through
demonstrations and petitions to pressurise the so called Interim
Government and ensure that our voices reach the international public
opinion, boycott the elections and defeat any game to falsify the will
of the Iraqis.
