1144to Barbara Re: [IRAQHistory] to Amr, Barbara & Jawad
- Jul 23, 2012Dear Barbara:Thank you so much for your acknowledgment and perspective.There is a strange addition to my email below in which Iwrote "Re-sending the note below. . ."!! There is a lineabove it that reads, "My contributions to Iraqi". I did nottype this line!!Please note that participation in documenting Iraq's historyor in evaluating certain era/material is not required orexpected from subscribers especially those who are not Iraqisor are exploring and learning about it. But of coursetheir inquiries and discussion are welcome if they choose toshare them.What we hope to receive from you and everybody else inthis group is at least one or two emails per year confirmingreceipt of an email or dropping us a line, which helpsconfirm the validity of his/her email address when werequest them.Knowing your interest and your husband's artistic activities,it would be wonderful to tackle some of the history of glorious Iraqi/Arabic music, a very good reason putting in mind thatArabs have been contributing to the world of music and singingsince the early Assyrian era and most probably earlier. MisbahKamal's appreciated efforts in translating the article about theglorious Iraqi artist, Uthman Al-Moussully, who was shockinglyunknown in the Arab world including Iraqis, come to mind.However, tackling a subject does not mean only researching, writing, translating and discussing but also by making inquiriesabout it and/or encouraging others to make them interestedor involved in it.I shall not remove your address and leave it up to you to doso when you see fit.In case you feel the urge to make a comment or check whethersome of our messages did not come your way, you can easilyfind out by visiting this http://groups.yahoo.com/group/IRAQHistoryWarm Regards,May Robertshttp://iraqshistory.blogspot.com

Dear May Roberts,
Interesting. No I did not receive your earlier sending of this e-mail.
I have not been able to contribute to the informational goals of the group, since I am never quite sure whether I am receiving all of the e-mails or just what is going on. I have observed that individuals seem to get annoyed and tell each other off. The particular political or religious points of view of individual contributors do not matter to me. When members actually make substantive contributions, I find them interesting, no matter what the perspective. Since I probably cannot contribute much to the group, you can remove my name from your list according to the deadline you have set.
In the meantime, I will continue to support my husband, Saadoun Al-Bayati, in presenting authentic Iraqi music and art songs as the opportunities arise.

Date: Thursday, July 19, 2012, 11:12 AM
Dear Amr, Barbara and Jawad:
I hope this note finds you well.
Please let us know if you are reading this group's emails and
wish to continue being part of it.
We have not heard from you, Barbara, for over 1.5 years.
For nearly a year, we received no emails from you, Jawad,
hoping that you and your family are all fine in Iraq. Your yahoo
address is on this list, has it changed?
As for you, Amr, and since the Egyptian crises, we never received any emails from you. We understand that this may
have lessen your interest in this group's subject matter, but we appreciate receiving one or two confirmations per year
If you don't wish to respond to this note for whatever
reason, feel free to remove your address from
this list by sending an email to
Otherwise, I will remove your addresses on July 25.
