Kerkük Kriz Masası mahalli meclis seçimlerinin başka bir tarihe ertelenmesini istedi ve vatandaşların iller arasında gelip gitmelerini önlemek için aynı zamanda siyasi ve milli oluşumları etkilememek için Irak’ta bütün bölgeler seçimi aynı günde yapılmalı .

Geçmişte yapılan seçimlerdeki haksızlıklar , iki Kürt partisi tarafından meydana geldi , Kerkük Şehrinde yanlış sonuçlara yol açtığını ki ( Kerkük Kriz Masası )’da bu iddiayı etmektedir .
Yapılan ihlallerin tesbiti ve sınırlanması için Irak Ulusal Meclisi tarafından bir komisyonun kurulup ve uluslararası destek alması ve bu ihlallerin kaldırılması gerekmektedir gerçi Kürt tarafları yapılan ihlaller üzerinde israr ediyorlar , ancak kalkması ile saydam seçim yapılarak bunun tersi olursa Türkmen , Arap ve Kuldu Asuriler Seçimin sonucunu çok iyi biliyorlar ve bunu hiç bir vatansever kabul edemez .
Millet Meclisi ve Irak Hükümeti Kerkük’ün sorunuyla ilgili Kürtlerin baskısına bir nokta koysun ve Irak’ın milli çıkarı için çalışsın .
Kerkük kriz masasının isteği milli bir istektir, bu istek eğer gözardı edilirse Türkmenler seçimleri boykot etmek zorunda kalırlar ,bölgesel ve uluslararası koruma isteğinde bulunurlar ve birleşmiş milletler’den Türkmen,Arap,ve Kuldu Asurilerin haklarının korunmasını ve gerçek rolüne üslenmesini ister,eğer merkezi hükümetin gücü bu işe yetmezse .

(حملة كردية معدة سلفا لتصفية التركمان والعرب في ناحية قزلرباط – السعدية)

منذ مدة وبعد عام 2003 يقوم مسؤولي الاحزاب الكردية خاصة الحزب الوطني الكردستاني بممارسة الضغوطات والاساليب غير القانونية لطرد وتصفية سكان المناطق الغنية والمهمة استراتيجيا ومنها ناحية قزلرباط – السعدية – بحجة الارهاب الرائجة على الساحة السياسية في هذه الايام او اعتبارهم غير موالين لهم تحت يافطة التخريب . واتباع نفس الاسلوب في مناطق توركمن ايلي الاخرى والتمسك بالماد(140) من الدستور المنتهية فعاليتها شكلا وموضوعا لنفس الغرض ايضا
مديرناحية قزلر باط السيد احمد الزركوشي الخاضع لتوجيهات الحزب أعلاه والمعين من قبله بعد طرد مديرها السابق العربي بوشاية كردية ايضا والذي اثار المشاكل من يوم تعينه رغم معارضة التركمان والعرب ويقوم بتنفيذ اجندة حزبه على حساب أهالي الناحية الاخرين. ويدعي بأن الاعمال الارهابية التي تحصل في الناحية والقرى المحيطة بها هي نتيجة تعاون العرب السنة مع الارهابين مما أدى الى خلق حالة من عدم الاستقرار والتأثير السلبي على الناحية الاقتصادية للبلدة ..ان هذه التصريحات تعتبر تمهيدا للقيام بحملة كردية ضد التركمان والعرب في المنطقة
فعلى المسؤولين العراقيين وخاصة نواب محافظة ديالى في مجلس النواب التدخل واثارة الموضوع في المحافل السياسية والاتصال بالمسؤولين لتدارك الموقف والتحقق من هذه الخروقات تمهيدا لعرضها على الجهات المسؤولة

خلية ازمة كركوك تدعو الى تأجيل انتخابات مجالس المحافظات

 

 

 

دعت خلية ازمة كركوك الى تأجيل انتخابات مجالس المحافظات الى موعد أخرعلى ان تجري لجميع المحافظات العراقية الثمانية عشرة بنفس التاريخ لعدم افساح المجال لانتقال المواطنين بين المحافظات للتأثير على حجم المكونات القومية والسياسية

لايخفى ان الاخلالات العديدة التي حدث في الانتخابات الماضية ( وما دعت اليها خلية كركوك واحدة منها ) والتي جرت من طرف الحزبين الكرديين أدت الى افراز واقع غير حقيقي لمدينة كركوك
 

 

ان تحديد وحصر التجاوزات السكانية من قبل لجنة مختصة في مجلس النواب وتوفير الدعم الدولي لها للعمل على رفعها رغم اصرار الاطراف الكردية على تلك التجاوزات هو الطريق الصحيح لاجراء انتخابات نزيهة وبعكسه فان التركمان والعرب والكلدو أشوريين يعرفون نتيجة الانتخابات مسبقا وهذا ما لايقبله أي وطني شريف

ان على مجلس النواب والحكومة العراقية ان لاترضخ لضغوط الجانب الكردي حول مشكلة كركوك والمشاكل الاخرى وان تعمل حسب المصلحة العراقية العليا

ان الطلب المقدم من قبل خلية ازمة كركوك هو مطلب وطني مخلص واذا اهمل هذا الطلب فان التركمان مضطرين الى مقاطعة الانتخابات وطلب الحماية الدولية والاقليمية ومطالبة الامم المتحدة لان تأخذ دورها الحقيقي في حماية حقوق التركمان والعرب والكلدوأشوريين في محافظة كركوك ان عجزت الحكومة المركزية عن توفيرها

TÜRKMEN KURULTAYINA SUNULAN BİLDİRİ

DIŞ TÜRKMENLER BİRLİĞİ

 

TÜRKMEN KURULTAYINA SUNULAN BİLDİRİ

 

 

Biz, Türkmeneli dışındaki Türkmen dernek, örgüt ve hareketleri olarak, Kerkükte yapılan Türkmen kongresine ve seçimlerine, yurt dışındaki Türkmenlerin görüşünü bildirmek isteriz.

Türkmenlerin ve Türkmenelinin bu kritik zamanında tarihi bir kavşakta olduğumuzun bilincindeyiz. Eğer doğru seçim yapılırsa, yeni ekibin, tarihimizde büyük bir değişim yapacağına inanıyoruz.

 

Irak, kurulduğundan beri, üçüncü ana unsur olan Türkmenler hep dışlanmışlar ve meşru hakları ellerinden alınmıştır.

 

Hepimizin kabul etmesi gereken acı gerçek var ki Türkmenlerin haklarına kavuşmamalarının sebebi, düşmanlarının gücünden ziyade, Türkmenlerin parçalanmışlığı ve kendi aralarındaki çekişmelerle tükettikleri enerjinin heba olmasından dolayıdır. 

 

Şimdi değişim zamanı gelmiştir. Türkmenlerin başına geçmişten ders alan ve geleceğe yönelen bir ekip gelmelidir.

 

Bu ekibin seçiminde aşağıdaki kriterlerin kullanılmasını şart görüyoruz:

 

1-     Seçilecek ekip (Haklar verilmez- Alınır) ilkesiyle hareket edip Türkmenlerin Milli Kurtuluş Mücadelesini başlatmalıdır. Bu işi yapacak ekibin mücadeleci ruhlu olması ve geçmişte bu konuda tecrübeli olması gereklidir.

 

2-     Seçilecek ekibin mutlaka bir Eylem Planı olmalıdır. Bu planı, delegeler önüne serip, tartışmaya açmalıdır. Işe başladığı günden itibaren bu planı uygulaması ve sonuçlarını Türkmen Meclisinin önüne sermelidir. Türkmen Meclisi, periyodik olarak bu planın uygulamalarını gözden geçirmelidir.

 

3-     Seçilecek ekip, Türkmenlere karşı yapılan terör ve baskıların karşısında duracak olan Türkmen Savunma Gücünü kurmalıdır.

 

4-     Seçilecek ekibin Türkmenler arasında, Birlik ve Beraberliği birinci amaç edinip, Mezhep, Lehçe ve Bölge farkı gözetmemelidir. Türkmenelinin tüm bölgelerini temsil etmelidir. Türkmen enerjisinin içe değil dışa yönelmesini sağlamalıdır.

 

5-     Seçilecek ekibin ana amacı Türkmenleri özerkliğe kavuşturmak ve özerk Türkmenelini kurmak olmalıdır.

 

6-     Seçilecek ekip, tüm Türkmen partilerinin, örgütlerinin ve hareketlerinin dahil olduğu bir Türkmen Parlamentosunun kurulmasına çalışmalıdır.

 

7-     Seçilecek ekip, her türlü yolsuzluk, eş, dost ve akraba kayırma işlemlerinin karşısında sert bir şekilde durmalı ve önlemelidir.

 

8-     Seçilecek ekip, Türkmenlerin dünyaya açılan tek penceresi olan Türkmeneli Televizyonunu, yok edilmekle karşı karşıya kalmış bir toplumun sesi haline getirmeli. Bu televizyon, Türkmenlerin Milli Kurtuluş Mücadelesinin ilham kaynağı olmalıdır.

 

9-      Seçilecek ekip, dış ülkelerde Türkmen davası uğrunda çalışmakta olan bütün kuruluşlarla aktif bir şekilde iletişim içinde olup gereken bütün maddi ve manevi desteğini esirgememelidir. Seçilecek yeni Türkmen meclisinde Dış Türkmenlere ait bir kontenjan ayrılmalıdır. Merkezi dışarıda olan bir Dış Türkmenler Konseyi kurulmalıdır.

 

 

İmzalayan Dernek, Örgüt ve Hareketler:

 

1-      Ali Yılmaz- Bir Ocak Türkmen Kültür Derneği / Chicago/ Amerika.

 

2-      Hasan Aydınlı – Irak Türkmen Hakları Savunma Komitesi/ Brüksel/ Belçika.

Lost in the cyberspace, Google’s censorship against Uruknet

Uruknet

 

June 19, 2008Google must really have a thing against Uruknet. After Google News’ censorship

now Uruknet disappears even on Google’s search engine.

Google stopped indexing Uruknet the middle of May. After Uruknet wrote (again!) many e-mails to Google (and again! we didn’t receive any reply) Google restarted indexing some (not all!) Uruknet’s article on June 17. However, it seems that these articles have a short life on Google since they keep disappearing immediately after they are indexed.

For instance this is a Google’s page saved today, June 19, at 3pm Rome time and this is the same search Google page, the same day at 10 pm Rome time

– While the first page at 3pm shows the Uruknet’s article indexed by Google, in the second page’s results the article disappeared and Google left simply the Uruknet’s homepage. Moreover Uruknet’s articles indexed by Google before the middle of May are being disappearing as if someone is manually deleting them. As odd it may seem, it’s as if someone inside Google deleted the indexed article.

Google has already stopped indexing Uruknet from Google News, justifying it with lies and preposterous excuses

. Now it seems Google is deleting even those Uruknet’s articles that had already been automatically indexed by the search engine.

Furthermore Google search engine shows Uruknet’s results at the very last position, if at all.

Google’s censorship becomes very clear if one contrasts and compares the search of the word “uruknet” on Google and Yahoo.

Searching the word “uruknet” on Google this evening the results were 194,000

.

On Yahoo the same word shows 1,550,000 results

.

We don’t ask anymore our readers to write to Google since we lost even our last hopes in their fairness and good faith, but we would be grateful if our readers could post and distribute this article over the Internet; this affair goes far beyond Uruknet and Internet censorship is a real threat and is happening now.

Of course we reserve the right to take legal action against Google.

US General Accuses Bush Administration of War Crimes

Abu Ghraib by Fernando Botero

WEDNESDAY 18 JUNE 20

by: Matt Renner and Maya Schenwar, T r u t h o u t | Report

    Maj. Gen. Antonio Taguba (now retired) served as the deputy commanding general for support for the Third Army for ten months in Kuwait during the early days of the Iraq occupation. In a statement released today, he bluntly accuses the Bush administration of war crimes and lays down a challenge for prosecution.

    In 2004, Taguba released a classified report detailing abuses committed at Abu Ghraib Prison. The “Taguba Report” (executive summary) urged Pentagon officials to follow up on its findings by enforcing adherence to the Geneva Conventions in interrogations.

    Taguba retired in January 2007, later alleging that Pentagon officials had ordered him to retire for being “overzealous” in his criticisms of the military.

    In light of ongoing Congressional investigations into so-called harsh interrogation techniques, and on the heels of Congressman Dennis Kucinich recently issuing articles of impeachment accusing President Bush of, among other offenses, authorizing torture, we present Taguba’s latest statement for your consideration.

    The full Physicians for Human Rights report outlining the medical evidence of torture perpetrated by the United States can be read at their website.

 :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

     Preface to Broken Laws, Broken Lives

    By Maj. Gen. Antonio Taguba, USA (Retired)

    Maj. Gen. Taguba led the US Army’s official investigation into the Abu Ghraib prisoner abuse scandal and testified before Congress on his findings in May 2004.

    This report tells the largely untold human story of what happened to detainees in our custody when the Commander-in-Chief and those under him authorized a systematic regime of torture. This story is not only written in words: It is scrawled for the rest of these individuals’ lives on their bodies and minds. Our national honor is stained by the indignity and inhumane treatment these men received from their captors.

    The profiles of these eleven former detainees, none of whom were ever charged with a crime or told why they were detained, are tragic and brutal rebuttals to those who claim that torture is ever justified. Through the experiences of these men in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay, we can see the full scope of the damage this illegal and unsound policy has inflicted – both on America’s institutions and our nation’s founding values, which the military, intelligence services, and our justice system are duty-bound to defend.

    In order for these individuals to suffer the wanton cruelty to which they were subjected, a government policy was promulgated to the field whereby the Geneva Conventions and the Uniform Code of Military Justice were disregarded. The UN Convention Against Torture was indiscriminately ignored. And the healing professions, including physicians and psychologists, became complicit in the willful infliction of harm against those the Hippocratic Oath demands they protect.

    After years of disclosures by government investigations, media accounts, and reports from human rights organizations, there is no longer any doubt as to whether the current administration has committed war crimes. The only question that remains to be answered is whether those who ordered the use of torture will be held to account.

    The former detainees in this report – each of whom is fighting a lonely and difficult battle to rebuild his life – require reparations for what they endured, comprehensive psycho-social and medical assistance, and even an official apology from our government.

    But most of all, these men deserve justice as required under the tenets of international law and the United States Constitution.

    And so do the American people.

Kurdistan Region’s Model of Democracy bans 22 new parties!

Kudishaspect.com – By Dr Kamal Mirawdeli

 

Translated from: Rozhnama, Sulaymaniyah, reformist daily newspaper in Standard Kurdish,  21May 08, p4

 

[Report by Rebin Fatah in Arbil: ”Issuance of licence to new parties halted in Kurdistan “.]

 

Granting legal permission for the formation of political parties and organisations in Kurdistan have been halted and all the parties that during the last year have applied to the government for licences have not been approved and they have been forced to close down their headquarters and offices. Meanwhile, the General Director of the Office of the Interior Ministry denies that any verbal or written decision for stopping issuance of licenses for political parties exists.

 

An informed source told Rozhnama:” Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) and Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) have agreed not to give licence for the foundation of any political party and group in Kurdistan . A number of people who have made applications for licensing political parties have not received any answers and have been prevented from opening their offices.”  In this context, member of leadership of ‘Kurdistan Left Party’ (Parti Chapi Kurdistan) Dr Mohammad Pishdari told Rozhnama that “they applied for registering their party two years ago but still they have not received any reply. Then they hired a lawyer and submitted the application for the second time, but they did not get any result.” Pishdari added that “at the beginning they were told that they had to meet the [Interior] Minister. They tried twice a week for one month but they were not allowed to meet the Minister. In short, they did not want us to meet the Minister.”

 

According to some documents obtained by Rozhnama the Ministry of Interior in Kurdistan Region has formally recognised 25 political parties, two of which have dissolved and merged with KDP. Twenty two more parties and political groups have been denied licenses and they have been described in the documents of Interior Ministry as “subject (controlled) parties” (parta zherdastakan). Some of the parties and groups that have been denied licence indicate that the two dominant parties have controlled the government and they do not want the foundation of any new party unless it is their appendage. Therefore they have not issued licences to any Kurdish party for a long time. The documents obtained by Rozhnama confirm that since 1994 apart from the Islamic Group (Komala) and Kurdistan Islamic Union (KIU), only Turkoman and Assyrian parties have been licensed. Applications by Kurdish groups have been turned down. The rejected groups assert that: “ Kurdistan political power is aware that Turkoman and Assyrian parties will never be in a position to compete with them politically, therefore they are licensed. But they are ambivalent about Kurdish parties because they will have chance to become Opposition and compete to replace KDP and PUK.”

 

A number of known figures last year submitted an application for setting up a party under the name of ‘Kurdistan National Party’ (Parti Nishtimani Kurdistan), but they too have not received any response although according to Law for the Formation of Political Parties and Groups in Kurdistan any application for the formation of a political party must be acknowledged and responded to within three months. If the Government failed to respond within three months, then the applicant group can automatically act as a legally-permitted political party. However, even after the Government’s failure to respond to the applicants within this legal period, they have been prevented from opening their offices.

 

Founder of ‘Kurdistan National Party’, which were forced to close down their offices, Dr Muhammad Pishdari told Rozhnama: “After three months from submitting their application and failure of the Government to respond to it, we opened an office in Arbil. But the security forces shut our office and removed our sign.” Since 12 December 2007 when the founders of the ‘party’ submitted their application, they have received no positive or negative responses from the Interior Ministry; therefore they cannot have activities as a political party. 

 

Most of the groups that have applied for licenses stress that they do have all the terms and conditions for becoming a political party. The lack of response from the government is not based on lacking the conditions for setting up a party because if the conditions had not been met they would have been informed by the Ministry of Interior and would have been rejected on this basis. “But the fact of the matter is that the political power does not want any group outside its own will to function.”

 

Hawre Abdullah, deputy Secretary General of Kurdistan Workers’ Communist Party, which is one of the parties refused a licence, says that they have all the conditions for being a party such as Programme and Internal Rules, the names of 50 founders and 500 members. But so far they have received no answer. He stresses:” We would continue to use all our efforts to get licensed but if we fail then we would resort to internal and international campaigning”.

 

A main part of the political bureau of ‘Kurdistan Independence Action Party’ (parti kari serbekhoyi Kurdistan ) declared some time ago the dissolution of their party and joined KDP. A few months ago the former head of the party and a number of its members did not accept the dissolution of the party and merging with KDP they applied for the renewal of the licence of their party. A member of the leadership of the party told us: “We submitted our application in December last year but we have not received any response yet.” This member of the party, who preferred to remain anonymous, said “We are waiting for the government’s reply in order to reopen our offices and resume our activities as a political party.”

 

The Union of Communists in Iraq which has had activities in Kurdistan region since 1988 are in the process of setting up the Communists’ Committee in Kurdistan and apply to the government for licence. Member of the Central Committee of that Party indicated that they would submit their application for formal recognition in Kurdistan after completing their preparations. He added;” The past experience of the political power in the Region does not give us reason for optimism. They have seldom responded to the groups they do not like.” This member of the Central Committee of Union of Communists points out that although according to law any [new applicant] party that has not been acknowledged within three months, are entitled to act as legal group after that period, this law is not respected by the political power.

 

The General Director of the Office of Interior Ministry the judge Tariq Gardi rejected the idea that there exists any decision not to license new political parties. He said;” There is no such decision, verbal or written.” He added;” The Law of Political Parties is a clear law. The applications we have received would be studied and if they meet legal conditions they would be referred to the Prime Minister.”

 

Kurdistan Democratic Solution Party is one of the parties whose application has been kept in the Ministry of Interior for a long time. They have still not received legal permission. The General Director of the Office of Interior Ministry says:” We refused to give them license and they could make a legal appeal.” About the reasons for refusing to give them permission, Tariq Gardi said: “There are three points in their programme that contravene the Law of Political Parties in Kurdistan Region.”

Irak dışına yolculuk yapan Türkmen’ler tüm sınır kapılarını denemek istiyorlar , ( İbrahim Halil ) sınır kapısı dışında , çünkü bu kapı özellikle Türkmen gençleri için bir soruşturma kapısına dönüştü . Kürt idaresi tarafından sorulan can sıkıcı sorulardan bazıda , Türkiye’ye yolculuk nedenleri , Türkiye’de kimler tarafından karşılanacakları ve vize alma yolları .

Bu kışkırtmalar küçümseltmek haline vardı , valizler , elbiseler ahlaksız bir şekilde aranıyor , cep telefonlarındaki adlar, fotoğraflar , şarkılar inceleniyor, eğer Irak Türkmen Cephesiyle ilgili bir sembol veya bir bayrak bulurlarsa aramayı bir soruşturma haline dönüştürürler . bu can sıkıcı soruşturmaların bir örneğinden bahsedelim . 40 gün önce bir Türkmen genci öğrenci birliğinde çalıştığı için önce tutuklandı ve eşyasına alıkoyuldu sonrada bir hafta boyunca kendisine baskı ve soruşturma yapılarak kendisinden zorla itiraflar alınmaya çalışıldı , Türk İstihbaratında çalışıyor bahanesiyle .
Uygarlığa yönelen hangi alemde sınır kapıları istihbari daireler haline çevrilmiş ? Bu durum ne zamana kadar devam edecek ? Merkezi Hükümet tarafından yeni bir adım atma zamanı gelmiştir , bu adımda Türkiye’yle Telafer arasında yapılacak bir kapıdır , bu kapı Kürt Partilerinin istihbaratından uzak olacaktır .

Iraqi Turkmen Conference at the EU Parliament in Brussels:

“Kerkuk Problem and Article 140: Defining Alternatives”
The views of Kerkuk’s Turkmen and Arabs

Organizers: Organized by the Iraqi Turkmen Human Rights Research Foundation (SOITM) in partnership with Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO) with the assistance of the office of Ms. Ana Maria Gomes, Member of the European Parliament

Location: European Parliament, Brussels, ASP 5G2
Date: 23 June 2008, 01:00pm – 04:30pm

Topics: Kerkuk is a city rich in both oil and history. Home to Turkmens, Kurds, Arabs, Chaldo-Assyrians, and other indigenous communities, Kurdish claim of the city is at present subject to both conflict and controversy. The Turkmen and Arab leaders, citing their historic presence in the city, have expressed opposition in particular to its proposed inclusion in the nearby Kurdish region.

Selecting from article 58 of the Transitional Administrative Law (TAL) for Iraq, article 140 of the Iraqi constitution was extracted to mandate a resolution of this dispute through a process of normalization and a census, followed by a referendum to be held no later than 31 December 2007. This mechanism had however proved largely ineffectual and was not realized. The referendum appears as a consequence potentially set to deliver yet further instability and volatility.
The shortcomings of the process so far stem in part from a failure to define adequately a number of the key provisions outlined in article 140; the link between the components of normalization, census, and referendum; eligibility to vote; the threshold needed for a decision; and the boundaries of voting districts. Most crucially however, there has been little discussion of what options are to be presented to voters in an eventual referendum. This, in particular, has resulted in discussions reducing to a simple dispute between those who would see Kerkuk included in the Kurdish region and those who oppose this.
There has consequently been little room for constructive compromise. Acknowledging that the prevailing status-quo serves none of its citizens, Iraqi Turkmen participants opposed to the city’s inclusion in the Kurdistan region will be invited to present a proposal by which Kerkuk might be administered as a distinct Governorate or federal region within Iraq.
This is already the solution preferred for Baghdad, as well as many other disputed cities around the world.Iraqi Turkmens have remained marginalized during the process of reconstructing the Iraqi state after 2003, arguing that relatively little has been achieved with respect to correcting the past injustices they have suffered.
The recent waves of disproportionate Kurdish immigration into Kerkuk raises suspicions of the role this might play in the imminent referendum on the city’s future status. The conference would aim therefore to begin a process of rephrasing the discussion of Kerkuk’s future status in more constructive terms, principally by offering an alternative picture of its final status.
This conference aims to convene representatives of Iraq’s new institutions with European policy makers with an interest and opportunity to influence the reconstruction of the Iraqi state. The concerns of the Kerkuk’s Turkmens and Arabs will be presented by some of their most prominent figures in an effort to ensure that the next crucial steps in the reconstruction process proceed in a manner consistent with the principles of democracy, human rights, and the genuine inclusion of all affected not-ruling communities (minorities) in the region. These are principles without which a stable Iraq will inevitably remain illusive.

Iraqi Refugee Crisis grows as West turns its back

With millions displaced, foreign countries take increasingly hardline stance
By Kim Sengupta
Sunday, 15 June 2008

The plight of Iraqi refugees is now worse than ever, with millions struggling to survive in desperate conditions and with little hope of finding sanctuary.

While the crisis continues, the world community, especially Western countries, have not only failed to help but are also erecting fresh obstacles to prevent the dispossessed men, women and children from settling on their shores, says a new report by Amnesty International.
Many governments have attempted to justify their hardline stance by citing supposed improvements in the security situation in Iraq. But after a marked decline, the level of violence is rising again. The numbers killed each month fell from 1,800 in August 2007 to 541 in January 2008.

However, in March and April alone, more than 2,000 people, mostly civilians, died during clashes between US and Iraqi government forces and the Shia militia Mehdi Army.

The Iraqi diaspora is now one of the largest in modern times, with more than two million people fleeing abroad. But the ferocious strife and the breakdown in law and order have led to another wave of about 2.7 million fleeing their homes but unable to escape the country. Many of these have moved to Baghdad, putting further strain on a shattered infrastructure and adding to the city’s sectarian tensions. The situation in terms of numbers and conditions for the displaced people has deteriorated dramatically in the past two years, Amnesty claims.

“The crisis for Iraq’s refugees and internally displaced is one of tragic proportions,” said the report. “Despite this, the world’s governments have done little or nothing to help, failing in both their moral duty and legal obligation to share responsibility for displaced people wherever they are. Apathy towards the crisis has been the overwhelming response.”

Iraq’s neighbouring states hosted the vast majority of the refugees following the invasion by US and British forces in 2003 with a handful – less than 1 per cent – making it to Europe and North America. But these continents, facing their own economic hardships, have imposed harsher barriers, while the affluent West has begun to deport asylum-seekers to Iraq because it is purported now to be reaching stability.

There have been one or two highly publicised returns of refugees from Syria last autumn, which do not reflect the situation on the ground. The reality is that there are huge numbers trying to leave Iraq using both legal and illegal means

The Iraqi government, attempting to show that it was getting on top of the security situation, and to stop the flow of educated people out of the country, has been lobbying states in the region to put up restrictions. For instance, Syria, which had taken in the largest proportion of refugees, stopped the hitherto free entry across the border towards the end of last year at the request of the Iraqi Prime Minister, Nouri al-Maliki. Jordan, which has also received a large number of those fleeing, imposed new visa requirements last month.

Britain, whose forces in Basra do not venture out from their base at the airport, has been a leading proponent of sending people back because it was “safe”. On 27 March, 60 people were flown back to Iraq following another 120 deported over the past three years. Sweden, which has until now followed a liberal policy on Iraqi refugees, referred 1,776 cases to the police for forcible return, and, in a test case, a decision by the migration board not to grant asylum to an applicant who has arrived from Baghdad on the basis that there is no “armed conflict” in Iraq has been confirmed.

Most of the refugees in countries bordering Iraq do not have the right to work. Many live on meagre handouts and dwindling savings. Those who end up working in the black economy are often cheated, and there has been a rise in cases of child labour and women being forced into prostitution.

The Independent on Sunday spoke to Rashid, 14, who supports his disabled father, mother and four brothers and sisters by doing manual work in Damascus. “I take any job I can. We need the money,” he said. “I sometimes start at six in the morning and do not get back home until eight or nine at night. I have worked as a labourer, selling chai, cleaning shoes. We come from Ramadi, and I used to go to school there. I would like to continue with my education, but I do not think that will be possible. I would also like to go back to Iraq, but we have nothing left there.”

The forced migration within Iraq is largely unreported, with families being uprooted from homes they had occupied for generations. The Independent on Sunday spoke to two families, one Shia, the other Sunni, about how they had to flee. In both cases, the horrors they endured have turned tolerance and friendship across the religious divide into sectarian hatred.

Um Samir al-Rawi, who is Sunni, lives with her two daughters, Saba, 33, and Hiba, 28, in a dark and dingy house in Khadra, a Sunni area where they had taken refuge after being driven out of their home in the previously mixed Jihad district. Mrs al-Rawi’s husband died in 2004, and their son, Samir, is in exile in Syria after being hunted by the Mehdi Army which had accused him of being an insurgent.

The al-Amiry family, who are Shias, fled their home in Ghazaliyah after it came under attack from Sunni gunmen. “They began killing Shias, saying we were unclean and they will dispose of us,” said Mr al-Amiry. “The government did nothing to protect us. Then one morning my daughter found an envelope on the doorstep with an AK47 bullet and a note telling us that we had 48 hours to get out.”
