If you would like, you can also write about your interesting story.
No problem, I know he is truly inspiring.Wow, what a guy! thanks for sharing baghdad_sara.
Thank you for your input, most of these people often suffer similar fate and im sure they do get mistreated along the way because the smugglers know that these people are helpless. And yes that incident did occur in Australia, i remember hearing about it, correct me if im wrong but i think there is a thread about it here.I remember one of our family's friends telling us of his story and how he ended up in Holland after struggling for three years on a journey that started from Russia or Ukraine to end up in Holland. He had heart problems, he told us how Iraqis were mistreated by those smuggling them through borders and how they all suffered (Arabs and Kurds). He also mentioned that some of the people with him on that journey died. He also mentioned how thankful he felt to the dutch when they treated his heart disease on their own expenses for 100k$ when he reached Holland.
I regret that I couldn't get his story on youtube and share it with millions of people, I think Iraq should have a dedicated international English speaking channel that shows documentaries about such incidents. Including that one when a boat full of Iraqi women and children was left to sink while commercial and tourist ships were watching as they were instructed not to do anything. I think it was in Australia.
I just wanted to share that..
Thank you for sharing, so im assuming you left Iraq at a young age thats why you went back in 2003?we left iraq for beirut in 1979. came back briefly to Iraq then left again for good in 1981. Spent the intervening years between africa, eastern europe and the UK. when I reached adulthood I left my parents house and went off, studied and worked in various countries before the final fall of saddam in 2003... i immediately looked for a job in iraq, left my job, girlfriend etc... and off to shroogistan, where I learned what iraq and iraqis were really like! LOL.
we were of course VERY LUCKY to have left Iraq at that time. I know some truly horrific stories from the Iraqis who left later on...
I think u have a very bad image of the country, although security might not be 100% accomplished all through Iraq but still it is far better than 2007 and the years before, most of the internally displaced families (the ppl who received threats of real) are back to their original places or are living in better conditions one way or another, the govt. has been giving payments to them as well as proper, it's not as purple as it may sound when reading my words but still it I'd far different from the image you r trying to convey here,SashaCrow said:I live in Amman, working with our small nonprofit organization that helps Iraqi refugees. We provide food assistance to families with no financial resources and have a small community center here. We have been working with displaced Iraqis here since 2007 and have watched as the situation went from bad to worse to better and then worse and now getting worst. International aid for Iraqi refugees is drying up but still more and more Iraqis are having to flee Iraq for their safety. When their funds run out, they are destitute, UNHCR used to provide most eligible families with a small monthly grant that was hardly enough to live on but it made it possible. Now it is taking months and sometimes over a year before UNHCR decides if the family is eligible - and most of the time now, they are not. Also UNHCR took away this benefit from many who were receiving it. People are struggling just to survive here and it's really rough. They can't survive here and yet the death threats that forced them to leave Iraq are still there. What are they to do?
'might not be' 100% accomplished? There are still dozens of bombs and attacks every single month with 100-200 people dying and hundreds of others injured every single month.I think u have a very bad image of the country, although security might not be 100% accomplished all through Iraq but still it is far better than 2007 and the years before, most of the internally displaced families (the ppl who received threats of real) are back to their original places or are living in better conditions one way or another, the govt. has been giving payments to them as well as proper, it's not as purple as it may sound when reading my words but still it I'd far different from the image you r trying to convey here,
As for those who immigrated or fled Iraq, the majority were people benefiting from the foreign regime
I didn't complete my post, Plz read it again fully. One more thing, I am sick of those bastards who go out there and embarrass us Iraqis by throwing themselves on floors of airports asking for asylum which they don't deserve simply because they are a group of retards who want ppl to feed them and put the spoons into their mouths.Chounz said:'might not be' 100% accomplished?

He isn't trying to convey any image here habibi, YOU are the one trying to convey a wrong image. All to please your god Al Maliki.... Maliki in 2011: 'Iraq is the safest country in the region'. :lol:
Don't know why you try your best to make it seem like this current government is doing a good job... you're such a fail.
And what the **** are you talking about 'benefiting from the foreign regime'. What does that even mean? Enough with the lies and bullshit please. We've had enough.
Unfortunately yet another thread has been ruined..
They r simply forging the facts because there is no Sunni ruling the country .... Thats the hard truth. I see most of those IsheytanElKebir said:actually chounz, 90% + of the people who are dying every month are soldiers/police/poor shias "walking" on one of their random "remembrances"... basically something that does NOT effect or endanger the vast majority of the refugees in places like jordan (mostly sunni-arabs, christians and middle-class shias).
If u r not happy with what u have then work to get better things in life, this is what he Chinese do, Iraqis prefer to beg for it.SumerianKing said:I agree 100% that many Iraqi's lie and use "humanitarian" excuses just to get out the country for a way into Europe.
Guess what?, just recently there has been a HUGEE influx of Iraqis from Sweden coming into London. Guess why? Because the benefits that they get from Sweden are not as much as they are in the UK. And guess what else? there's going to be a new law in the UK by next year where all benefits are going to be the same, no matter if you want to live in a 2 bed house or a 6 bed house, the benefits rewarded by the council will be the same. They are going to **** all those people. Especially all those guys living in Edgware road at the government expense getting £3000 a month, there going to go have to find a new flat in the crapest of areas. People are never happy with what they have.
