Dear colleagues, If it is "occupied Baghdad" how come you are free to enter it as an opponent,hold public meetings,set up web sites and be free to leave it whenever you want.Obviously, it is far more free than "unoccupied Iraq". It is commendable to be so concerned about the state of human rights of the Iraqi people in "occupied Iraq". Therefore, I propose that you extend your remit in time to include the same under"unoccupied Iraq",namely mass graves, torture chambers and flattened villages. After all, charity begins at home and first come,first served.By definition, human rights standards stipulate one yardstick everywhere for everyone and at all times.Otherwise, one will be guilty of double standards and selectiveness at best.At worst,it may be seen as detraction from the endemic cause of Iraq's deplorable past state of human rights.

We have a web site: www.occupationwatch.org. on the advisory board, there are many welknown personalities among them are members of CASI: Kamil Mahdi, Rania Masri and Milan Rai. our end is insisting on stablising an Iraqi government elected through democrstic means by the Iraqis.. indeed, three months of occupation are enough to say that occupation authorities had not put human rights in their mind. We were promised help from many international bodies.. We will go toward our goal through documented report. I am the repreentative in Baghdad working with many experts. We will send our reports and press releases to CASI. best regard Nermin al_mfti, occupied Baghdad _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
