    New York Times: Obama's claim al-Maliki to observe democratic standards as a condition for U.S. help

    29-10-2013 | (Voice of Iraq)

    Translation term
    The last time he visited Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, the White House in December of 2011, was about the recovery of hope where he and Obama has ended the military occupation, which lasted eight years with a view to the heart of a new page and establish a normal relationship between two sovereign countries.
    But Mr. al-Maliki did not abide by his part in partnership. Obama then praised at home as the "president-elect for a sovereign and democratic Iraq based on the same", but he was surprised when he saw him return to Baghdad and begin the implementation of authoritarian repression against the political leaders of the year - members of the government-backed partnership of the United States.
    And continued political crisis triggered by Maliki, and caused undermine years of U.S. efforts to integrate the Sunni Arabs in the political process. Tensions worsened after he turned the civil war in Syria into a regional sectarian war by proxy.
    I've breathed new life instability in the Sunni insurgency in Iraq, and renewed youth and the confidence of the militants, and tribal cooperation necrosis who sewn attitude during the process of sustaining the momentum of America in 2007.
    The escalation of violence in the country to levels not seen since 2008 even reached thousand per month tragedy; also gained more power base in Iraq; increased the threat of the return of the Shiite militia; and increased fears of a return to sectarian revenge circles.
    The center of the storm, scheduled to return al-Maliki to the White House during the current week, looking for security assistance from the United States.
    That the fight against terrorism represents a common interest, but with al-Maliki's willingness to seek a third term in 2014, it is the duty of Mr. Obama to insist on adherence to democratic standards as a condition for U.S. assistance.
    Since that within al-Maliki for a second term, he became more تخندقا through an organized campaign to consolidate power and purge the security forces of loyalists.
    And after he got the job through a consensus among the strongest political forces, marked by the doctrine of his desire to stay. For him not considered sectarian and nationalist ideologies as they are tools to achieve their political interests.

    The presence of survival instincts above all is the legacy of a broken state institutions, and the legacy of the politics of fear, and a tense social fabric with a faint sense of national cohesion.
    Iraqis are suffering from shock caused by a decade of death and destruction, and a long history of sanctions and war and tyranny. The unwillingness of elites to engage in genuine national reconciliation, community perpetuate mistrust and ensure the continuation of sectarianism.
    And necrosis of the political culture in Iraq's democratic institutions established under occupation. It is true that there is a constitution, but Iraq is not a constitutional state; Parliament prescribed laws, but the provisions of the law selectively; election is just a game to divide the spoils between corrupt elites; and the government get huge profits from oil exports, but they fail to provide basic services while living nearly a quarter Iraqis under the poverty line.
    Did not show an internal balance of power, and instead, the political system favors the prime minister at the expense of the legislative and judicial powers and the rest of the political class, and favors the central government at the expense of regional governments and provincial governments.
    Obama will have to reconsider the balance between the hard-line U.S. forces and soft in framing future of Iraq instead of betting on the relationship of the Cold War model focused on security, the United States should take a broader perspective. America will also need to help re-integrate Iraq regional system, and can help to deepen and expand Iraq's international trade and enhance its role in regional diplomacy and help diversify its economy beyond oil, which encourages elites to plunder.
    And inside Iraq, the U.S. government should encourage the electoral process leading to a more representative government. Can constituencies based on small geographical units that give greater authority to the Iraqi people and ensure that the competition for power and resources within communities and not among them, as this will allow the formation of alliances across sectarian divisions on mutual interests. Finally, we must look like the United States and it supports the Iraqi people as a whole and does not favor any particular faction or person. At that time, it will continue to denounce terrorism, the United States also condemns human rights violations.
    In most cases, offend Maliki translation of American support for his government as a delegate stubborn behavior which to اهوادة.
    Above all, Mr. Obama does not understand Iraq as a liberal democracy, it will at best democracy without democrats. The Iraqis deserve better than that.

    Premier Barzani: ‘Downtown Erbil’ a ‘Milestone’ for Kurdistan
    By Armando Cordoba



    Premier Barzani: ‘Downtown Erbil’ a ‘Milestone’ for Kurdistan ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Prime Minister Nechirvan Barzani kicked off the nearly $3 billion “Downtown Erbil” project on Sunday, calling the venture that is estimated to create 35,000 jobs and transform the face of the Kurdish capital, “a milestone for the Kurdistan Region.”



    “This project will be a source of pride and a source of income for thousands of families,” Barzani said at a commencement ceremony with Mohamed Alabbar, head of Dubai’s Emaar Properties, which is leading the project and hopes to finish it in around five years.



    Barzani said that the 133-acre “Downtown Erbil” -- which envisions the capital’s largest shopping mall, five-star hotels, apartment towers, schools and healthcare facilities -- “is a milestone for the Kurdistan Region.”



    He added that the development marks a turn in Kurdistan, a three-province autonomous Kurdish enclave of five million in northern Iraq whose economy is booming and which posted a whopping 12-percent economic growth last year.



    “Downtown Erbil will be a true hub for business and tourism in Erbil,” Alabbar told a gathering of government ministers, foreign diplomats, Erbil governor Nawzad Hadi and many businessmen attending the inauguration ceremony.



    “It will touch around $3 billion,” Alabbar said about the cost of the development.



    Asked about luxury developments like Downtown Erbil that have been cited by many Kurds as a major source of inflation and high living costs that make them unaffordable to the average Kurd, Alabbar said that was nothing new.



    “Show me a project in Los Angeles, Singapore or New York that hasn’t done that,” he said, adding that cooperation by the Kurdistan government would ensure that the development’s overall impact remains positive.



    Barzani, meanwhile, added that the percentage of people living below the poverty line in Kurdistan had dropped from 5 percent in May to 3.7 percent presently, citing research done by the United Nations and the US-based Rand Corporation.



    “We need to make the country into a new Region and can achieve this with the support of all Kurds working as a team,” Barzani said, especially emphasizing the need for the youth to take their roles head on and not rely on the government to do everything.



    “Some think the government should be doing everything, it’s time for you, our dear youth to work for a better Kurdistan,” he said.



    The Kurdistan Region -- which is home to some five million Kurds, small numbers of Christians and Arabs from other parts of violent Iraq and more recently some 250,000 Syrian refugees -- is often dubbed the next Dubai for its incredible economic growth.


    Oil companies from the United States, Russia and next-door Turkey are working on major exploration and pipeline projects to extract and export the region’s generous energy resources. Major international carriers like Dubai’s Emirates Airline report record passenger growth on flights into Erbil’s new and modern airport.

    For Many Iraqis, Kurdistan is the Place to Go for Good Healthcare
    By Kira Walker 11 hours ago




    For Many Iraqis, Kurdistan is the Place to Go for Good Healthcare


    ERBIL, Kurdistan Region - “This is the third time I’ve come to Erbil from Baghdad for medical treatment,” explained Habib Hiluwfahad as he awaited a doctor’s appointment for an ongoing back problem at a hospital in the autonomous Kurdistan Region in northern Iraq.



    “All the good doctors are leaving Baghdad, it’s risky to get treatment in Baghdad and the success rate is low, so to get good treatment you need to leave,” Hiluwfahad explained, as he sat in the cafeteria of the Turkish Private Hospital in the Kurdish capital.



    Across hospitals in Erbil, the same story was echoed by patients, doctors and nurses: Since the 2003 US-led invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein, there has been a mass exodus of doctors from Iraq; people often cannot receive the medical care they need, forcing them to seek treatment elsewhere.



    For many, the answer is found in the three-province Kurdistan Region, which lies about 350 kilometers north of Baghdad and remains violence-torn Iraq’s only oasis of calm and economic growth.




    People are tired from the security situation in Iraq,


    “People are tired from the security situation in Iraq,” said Dr Dakhil S. Khuder, a surgeon at Erbil’s Al Rasul New Hospital. “Doctors can’t treat patients properly and they can’t follow up on their patients during the night. Here, because Erbil is more safe and stable, they’re free,” he said.



    Dr Reda al-Majidi, an orthopedic specialist at Al Rasul, is one of the doctors who relocated to Erbil to escape the violence in Baghdad.



    “In Baghdad, doctors are the targets of terrorism, so most have fled for their own safety,” he explained. “Many doctors have come to Erbil and the patients have followed the doctors here.”



    Alborz Ali, a translator at the Turkish Private Hospital who interprets between staff and patients speaking Kurdish, Turkish, Arabic, Farsi and English, said that in the two years that the hospital opened most of the patients have come from Baghdad and other parts of Iraq.



    Taleb Wahab Saad, accompanying an ill friend from Baghdad, described the frustrations and difficulties patients experience when they try to see a doctor anywhere else in Iraq. “There are few doctors and many patients, so you must wait a long time to get treatment, which is a big problem if you have an emergency.”



    Mariam Jalalvand, a nurse at the Turkish Private Hospital, said some patients end up very ill by the time they reach Erbil.



    “I have one patient now whose illness went undiagnosed for two weeks while she was getting treatment in Baghdad. Now, she’s here, but it’s taking her a long time to recover because of the initial delay in her treatment,” Jalalvand said.



    Cardiac surgeon Dr Mert Yilmaz explained that the aim of the Turkish Private Hospital is to keep Iraqi patients in Iraq. “We don’t want patients to leave Iraq for treatment, for example to Turkey, Jordan, India or the UK. Erbil is much closer for patients when they need treatment immediately.”




    Kurdistan is part of Iraq, why do we need residency to come here?


    Yilmaz said that while there are many excellent and experienced resident doctors in the Kurdistan Region, specialists are brought in from Turkey when needed for difficult cases, which helps make it easier for patients to remain in Iraq for full treatment.



    He noted that before the war, there were many good doctors in Baghdad, an opinion affirmed by all the doctors and nurses interviewed. Then, people from Kurdistan would travel to Baghdad to receive the superior treatment available there. But since 2003, that trend has reversed.



    For Amal Abd Ali, another patient from Baghdad, the treatment in Erbil is expensive in comparison, but she accepts the expense for the sake of her health. She acknowledged that, compared to treatment outside Iraq, Erbil is still less expensive.



    “Here, we’re comfortable and the doctors and services are very good. In Baghdad, I was in the hospital for two weeks, but they couldn’t diagnose my illness and didn’t do anything for me. Then I came here and began getting treatment and I’m finally getting better,” Ali said.




    I just tell them I’m coming for medical treatment.


    But she complained that, although the Kurdistan Region is part of Iraq, outsiders still need permits for stays longer than a week. Ali’s diabetic complications mean her treatment will take longer, but her husband and daughter were only given seven-day visas.



    “Kurdistan is part of Iraq, why do we need residency to come here?” she questioned.



    Whether they came to Kurdistan overland or by plane, the patients themselves said they experienced no difficulties entering Kurdistan for treatment.



    “It’s easy to travel here for medical treatment. I travel by plane and haven’t faced any difficulties on all three of the trips I’ve made,” Hiluwfahad said. “I just tell them I’m coming for medical treatment.”
