Bibliotheca Alexandrina launches campaign to provide Mosul University library with 100,000 books

The Bibliotheca Alexandrina in Egypt has launched an international campaign to provide Ashurbanipal Library of the Mosul University with 100,000 books, within efforts to revive the library destroyed by the Islamic State militants in 2015.

“The first amount of books offered to Ashurbanipal reaches 1,500 titles of books offered from Bibliotheca Alexandrina, the Egyptian national committee for museums and the French institute for documents and social studies,” according to Khaled Azab, head of the BA Central Projects and Services Sector.
MadDScout says(6:38 PM):
“The Bibliotheca Alexandrina leads an international campaign to provide Ashurbanipal with 100,000 books,” he added.
The Egyptian Library offered Mosul University around 5,000 books before IS burnt the Mosul Library after taking over the city.

Ashurbanipal Library, named after the last ancient Assyrian king, is one of the oldest libraries in the world.
MadDScout says(6:38 PM):
((100,000!!))

MadDScout says(6:39 PM):
The group, which considered sculptures as symbols of infidelity, posted movies showing the members axing down priceless monuments in Mosul, drawing international condemnation. Reports later showed that some antiquities were sold out in online auctions.

Eastern Mosul was retaken in January after three months of battles. Another major offensive was launched in February to retake the western side of the city.

Baghdad, Baghdad

With the adoption of the budget of 2017 and the adoption of the government austerity policy and the imposition of taxes on state employees, did not calm the feelings of resentment and criticism in various popular and economic circles, and with the return to reduce the proportion of those deductions from 4.8% to 3.8% for reasons that are still so vague,
MadDScout says(6:43 PM):
despite Of the increase in oil imports according to the high oil prices compared to what was estimated in the budget law for the current year, describes economic specialists, those steps without deliberate, and not only "tickle the emotions of the people" means the start of the race for the election,

The citizen is the victim of every financial hardship Or deficit in the budget, while not subject to taxes businessmen and contractors who have large incomes, and this in itself a big mistake.
MadDScout says(6:44 PM):
(( The imposition of this tax scheme in it's current form, has created consternation about the governments intent. Reasons to follow ))
MadDScout says(6:44 PM):
According to economic expert Salama Smisem in an interview with (Al-Mada), the deductions of salary rates and then the cessation of deductions, is one of the steps that have not been subject to study and economic planning, follow up: which clearly indicates the imbalance in how to issue economic decisions, The most ominous of the justification given to those decisions, wondering whether it is reasonable to stop the deductions is due to the improvement of the financial situation of Iraq because of high oil prices ,? Are we at "taller" for selling vegetables, we sell, we receive funds to go to salaries and wages.

MadDScout says(6:45 PM):
(( Salama is pointing out there was no study or plan done prior to this schema's induction, and appears more of posturing for upcoming elections, than it is any substantive tax law.


SRW says to MadDScout(6:45 PM):

MadDScout says to jxxl(6:48 PM):

MadDScout says(6:48 PM):
In this paragraph Salama is saying, there are many conciderations about tax law and how it works when implemented properly. Which he points out as glaring disparity(my phrase) in the governments approach to the decisions it makes, with regard to economic forethought.
MadDScout says(6:49 PM):
Saying that the most "ominous" part of the decision making process, is whether to reduce taxes in light of higher oil prices. Her follow on statement is akin to "Are we that much better off for selling vegetables(or oil)? as if to say, we sell oil and get paid which goes to pay salaries. Should the price allow us to neglect true economic maintenance? ))

"If so, how can we offer to borrow from the World Bank, and the last of these loans was a few days before the above decision," she said. "All this indicates that the policy of" tickling the emotions of the people "has already begun. Pre-emptive propaganda preparatory to the elections and nothing else, explaining: The matter here has nothing to do with the performance of the economy as they claim.
MadDScout says(6:50 PM):
(( pointing out, if that is the case, why do we bother the World Bank? Saying the loans are only days old, ahead of this presumed affluence.
MadDScout says(6:51 PM):
Then she slammed the foot down, "this is all for the purposes of wooing citizens prior to elections. ))


MadDScout says(6:51 PM):
The economist pointed out that this economic policy, especially with regard to the effects of loans and their economic consequences, which will be paid by the next generation and their children will be dire. Significantly, we are working according to the principle of "pay what is in the pocket brings you what is in the unseen", a concept that does not serve the Iraqi economy and the citizen in the long term "He said.
MadDScout says(6:51 PM):
(( Pointing to the next generation will be the bearer of the burden to pay back these loans. ))
MadDScout says(6:51 PM):
After the parliamentary finance committee in previous statements, the financial budget for 2017 sent by the government to the House of Representatives included deductions from the salaries of employees and retirees, after the budget in 2016 3%, has become in the budget of 2017 4.8%, according to the Committee, the paragraph deduction 3 And the remaining 1.8% of the deduction is added to the other expenses, "and it does not know where the money goes 1.8% of the intermittent, re-announced on 27/4-2017 the need to deduct the salaries of employees as approved in the general budget for the year Due to the rise in international oil prices Voting on reducing the rate of deduction of state employees from (4.8%) to (3.8%).

MadDScout says(6:53 PM):
On the other hand, the economic expert in the name of Antoine, in an interview with (extent), unfortunately, that whenever there is a financial crisis or budget deficit, the government resort to borrowing or deductions, and was supposed to expand the tax container.
MadDScout says(6:53 PM):
((Pay attention, here comes the consternation))
MadDScout says(6:54 PM):
But it is not at the expense of the employee and this is a big mistake, but it must be at the expense of entry that is not taxable. Continuing: When we want to apply the system of deductions to expand the tax base must be those who do not pay taxes, such as businessmen and contractors, who do business and have a large entry but not subject to taxes.


MadDScout says(6:55 PM):
(( There it is! >>>>>Those with the most capacity to pay taxes are not being taxed at present, i.e. contractors and businessmen<<<<<< Those who have large entry(bank accounts) but pay no taxes! ))


MadDScout says(6:56 PM):
Antoine said: There are direct and indirect taxes and the citizen in all cases is the victim of decisions to apply direct and indirect taxes, there is very little category covered. Mirdafa: In contrast, there is a failure to provide accurate statistics on those covered by the tax system and not covered.
MadDScout says(6:56 PM):
(( Antoine is saying the people are taxed 9 ways to Sunday(direct and indirect ways). That is why it is a burden on the poor because they are expected to carry the heaviset requirement, while the rich are allowed to be fat cats. ))
MadDScout says(6:56 PM):
According to specialists, the budget of 2017 included the rate of deduction and taxes on the simple citizen, which means that there is a problem facing the decision-maker in cases that relate to increasing the burden on citizens, such as raising subsidies or reduce salaries or impose new taxes, which comes for several reasons including The miserable achievements and corruption of previous governments.
MadDScout says(6:57 PM):
(( Not an enviable job to be the guy to raise taxes on the already taxed. Some of this disparity (according to Antoine) is the result of "miserable achievements and corruption of previous governments." hint hint))
MadDScout says(6:57 PM):
The House of Representatives voted on 24-10-2016 during its 25th session of the Legislative Chapter for the third legislative year on the adoption of the Budget Law 2017, worth more than 100 trillion dinars and a total deficit of more than 21 trillion dinars.

He added that "the meeting also discussed the file of compensation with the State of Kuwait and ways to settle through the window of investment inside Iraq."


Iraq is still paying compensation to Kuwait due to the Iraqi invasion in 1990, while Kuwait agreed to postpone these compensation during the past two years at the request of Iraq as a result of the decline in oil prices.

Correct
MadDScout says to BGG(7:09 PM):
I may have had a gap in my logic
BGG says(7:10 PM):
One of the big problems needing dealt with - is they have few mechanisms in place to safe guard investors. Why would the IMF care about Iraqi investors. They don't - this is referring to OUTSIDE investors. Period.
