From Anbar with Love.. | Layla Anwar, February 14, 2014,
he is a muslim with his deformed, voiceless child, home destroyed by maliki admin bombing, and memories of his children killed by US bombing, who has been living in battle-fields for more than a decade, and who is exiled from his home, and who is repeatedly uttering two words, "God" and "Allah". I don't know what to say to him. there are westerners who believe that it's meaningful to fill up cyberspace with a message, "your (muslims') faith is wrong. you need to develop a consciousness of the world." do they tell him the same thing? I think that what he needs is new home, where he and his family can live without fear, and livelihoods, and health-care, which helps them survive trauma, and which his deformed child needs, and fellow muslims' consolation and support. (of course, non-muslims should support him. but I guess that they can't be as good spiritual consolations as his fellow muslims.) and as long as the west supplies arms to maliki admin, persons like him continue to increase.

Snapshots - Monsters in the Light. | Layla Anwar , An Arab Woman Blues - Reflections in a sealed bottle...
from the page: "...I don't like to mention your names no more...Americans, British...your names mean nothing. I call you the West... So Her Majesty's media ran a piece... about birth defects in Iraq being up by 60% since 2003. A generation or two of Iraqi Frankensteins....mirrors and reflections. Your ugliness and your deformity. ******* Ten years on, and you are still farting the same old stench...maybe we shouldn't have after all, maybe we miscalculated, we fumbled, maybe there were a few errors, we didn't plan enough, maybe we shouldn't have dismantled the army, the state, the technocrats ....maybe, maybe.... Who are you to decide in the first place what should have been done in/to Iraq...Who are you to decide the fate of a sovereign nation in the corridors of your CIA and M16 ? Listening to you argue in your crappy articles, I want to slap you all....and hard, like they slap a newborn as it emerges from the womb....covered in blood and see the light... ..."

‘Iraqis cannot forget what Americans have done here’ | Cathy Breen, November 29, 2012, Blog
from the page: ""..You have destroyed everything. You have destroyed our country. You have destroyed what is inside of us! You have destroyed our ancient civilization. You have taken our smiles from us. You have taken our dreams!" Someone asked, "Why did you this? What did we do to you that you would do this to us?""Iraqis cannot forget what Americans have done here," said another. "They destroyed the childhood. You don't destroy everything and then say 'We're sorry.' "You don't commit crimes and then say 'Sorry.'" "To bomb us and then send teams to do investigations on the effects of the bombs…No, it will not be is carved in our hearts. "We are happy to make bridges between people, said the president of the college, but we will not forget. What can you do? In Fallujah 30% of the babies are born deformed." ..There are fifteen thousand people at the U.S. embassy in Baghdad. [and 5,000 security personal to protect them]. They have their collaborators. The war is not over.

Iraq records huge rise in birth defects | Sarah Morrison 14 October 2012 . The Independent
from the page: "It played unwilling host to one of the bloodiest battles of the Iraq war. Fallujah's homes and businesses were left shattered; hundreds of Iraqi civilians were killed. Its residents changed the name of their "City of Mosques" to "the polluted city" after the United States launched two massive military campaigns eight years ago. Now, one month before the World Health Organisation reveals its view on the legacy of the two battles for the town, a new study reports a "staggering rise" in birth defects among Iraqi children conceived in the aftermath of the war. High rates of miscarriage, toxic levels of lead and mercury contamination and spiralling numbers of birth defects ranging from congenital heart defects to brain dysfunctions and malformed limbs have been recorded. "

The Children of Fallujah - Sayef's story | Robert Fisk, 25 April 2012, The Independent
from the page: " ..Studies since the 2004 Fallujah battles have recorded profound increases in infant mortality and cancer in Fallujah; the latest report..says that congenital malformations account for 15 per cent of all births in Fallujah. "My son cannot support himself," Mohamed says, fondling his son's enlarged head. "He can move only his hands... He can't swallow. Sometimes he can't take even the milk, so we have to take him to hospital to be given fluids. He was blind when he was born. In addition, my poor little man's kidney has shut down. He got paralysed. His legs don't move. His blindness is due to hydrocephalus." ... "After he was born, I got Sayef to Baghdad and I had the most important neurosurgeons check him. They said they could do nothing..." .."Every time I watch my son, I'm dying inside," he says, tears running down his face... I ask whom he blames for Sayef's little calvary... "I am only asking for help from God.. I don't expect help from any other human being."

Rivers of Blood, Rivers of Tears The Iraqi People: Criminally Neglected by the International Community Open Letter to The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay | Dirk Adriaensens, BRussells Tribunal, 09 February 2012
from the page: " We sincerely hope your office will closely monitor the human rights abuses of Nouri Al-Maliki’s government, the American “advisers” and the foreign mercenaries who are still present in Iraq. We will never accept that history will be rewritten by the invading powers that illegally occupied a sovereign country, an invasion and occupation that your office has never condemned. "To initiate a war of aggression is essentially an evil thing (…) It is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime, differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole", according to the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg, which followed World War II. And not once have I seen a word of condemnation from International Human Rights bodies about the illegality of the Anglo-American invasion. Your office has excelled in silence. Silence is complicity. And silence kills.

DAYSから視る日々: nuclear power plants become the factor that causes all sorts of discrimination. don't fall under it. | Ryuichi Hirokawa
from the page: "... 私は所長に「この子どもたちはチェルノブイリのせいで病気になったのですか」と尋ねた。所長は首を振った。「何人かはそうかもしれないが、ほとんどは関係ないでしょう。なぜならここには事故前から多くの子どもがいたからです。事故の後に1割ほど増えたかもしれないけれど」と言う。雑誌や映画を見た人は、写っているすべての子がチェルノブイリ事故のせいで障害者となったと思ったはずだ。放射能はあらゆる病気の原因になる。遺伝子を傷つけるから出産異常も身体障害も引き起こす。だが、放射能の恐ろしさを訴えるためにこのような強調をしていいのだろうか。人は皆、健康でありたいと願う。親は子どもの健康を望む。けれども「身体異常の子どもができるから原発に反対だ」という言葉は、障害者に「自分のような人間が生まれないために原発に反対するのか。自分は生まれてはいけなかったのか」と考えさせるだろう。原発は、あらゆる形の差別を引き起こす要因にもなる。それに取り込まれてはならない。"

City that suffered most calls for an end to nuclear testing | By Louise Gray, 29 Aug 2011, Telegraph
from the page: "Between 1949 and 1989 this area of eastern Kazakhstan was used by the former Soviet Union to test 456 nuclear bombs. The local population was not told about the risks to their lives – or indeed the health of their grandchildren. It is estimated some 1.5 million people were affected by the fallout and decades on doctors blame high rates of cancer and birth deformity on the continuing effects of radiation... On the 2nd UN International Day to Stop Nuclear Testing, they are calling for a complete worldwide ban on all nuclear testing... Dr Marat Sandybaev, head of the local oncology centre, says cancer rates in the area are almost twice the national average. He said there is “consensus” in the medical community about the link between] radiation and cancer... Despite their traumatic past and vast resources of wind and solar, the Kazakhs are currently discussing whether to build a new nuclear power station to take advantage of their huge natural uranium deposits.."

Malaysia's new rare earth plant provokes radiation fears | By Julia Yeow May 29, 2011, DPA, Monsters and Critics
from the page: "In the quiet town of Gebeng in Malaysia's central state of Pahang, a new rare earth plant has evoked fears of radiation contamination as residents desperately seek to stop the construction of the world's largest such refinery... The 700-million-ringgit (233 million dollars) refinery is being constructed by Australia's Lynas Corp, which plans to ship rare earth ore mined from Western Australia's Mount Weld to the Gebeng plant... The main concern is the possibility of contamination from low-level radioactive waste from the rare earth refining process... Those opposing the Gebeng plant have pointed to the Asian Rare Earth plant the 1980s by Japan's Mitsubishi Corp as an example of the refinery... That facility was blamed for the unusually high number of birth defects and leukaemia cases among the 11,000-strong population living nearby. It ceased operation in 1992 after protests from locals and environmentalists. The owners were never sued and no compensation...

Genetic Engineering: Scientists warn of link between dangerous new pathogen and Monsanto’s Roundup
from the page: "A plant pathologist experienced in protecting against biological warfare recently warned the USDA of a new, self-replicating, micro-fungal virus-sized organism which may be causing spontaneous abortions in livestock, sudden death syndrome in Monsanto’s Roundup Ready soy, and wilt in Monsanto’s RR corn... Huber, who has been studying plant pathogens for over 50 years and glyphosate for over 20 years, has noticed an increase in pathogens associated with the herbicide. In an interview with the Organic and Non-GMO Report last May, he discussed his team's conclusions that glyphosate can, “significantly increase the severity of various plant diseases, impair plant defense to pathogens and diseases, and immobilize soil and plant nutrients rendering them unavailable for plant use.”This is because “glyphosate stimulates the growth of fungi and enhances the virulence of pathogens.” In the last 15-18 years, the number of plant pathogens has increased...
