      Dear May:
      Thank you for providing the link below about the so-called history of Iraq.
      I must say that it is neither entertaining nor informative or accurate to
      watch the link's presentation.  It has been posted by an Iraqi medical
      doctor who claim to be knowledgeable about the history of Iraq.
      In less than ten minutes, he is trying to cover more than three thousand
      years worth of history, primitively presented for viewers' pleasure and
      cheap comments rather than learning.

      Greetings to all;
      I just found this interesting youtube clip about the history
      of Iraq all through 1958:
      I hope you find it informative and with the least errors.
      It is unfortunate that the clip is produced from the usual male viewpoint
      of history; coups, wars, political unrest and treaties, invaders
      and revolutions.
      Best Regards,
      May Roberts

      I am still alive.


      My main area is insurance.  I deliberately write in Arabic for the benefit of my insurance colleagues in Iraq as there is no printed insurance journal in Iraq – one of the reasons that I have launched the Iraq Insurance Review blog.  For those who are interested in Iraq ’s insurance sector I attach two of my papers.


      Best regards.

      Thank you, Misbah, for attaching two documents on Insurance.
      As usual when I open or send attachment through this yahoogroup,
      I experience some problems, so I was only able to open the
      second attachment Misbah Kamal - Iraq's Insurance Market [article for Policy].doc  and not the extended article.
      On a different matter:
      I would like to remind all subscribers to please when emailing
      the group is to stick with the history of Iraq.  If you intend to provide
      a clip to watch or an audio to listen, let the content precisely deal
      with history and not offshoot the subject into the present or another
      matter.  Thank you.

      Dear All



      I too hope that subscribers of this group try to at least once every two weeks to email the group with an English article, information or an inquiry to benefit and learn.  Articles/research paper in Arabic with English translation are ideal.


      Indeed since March I've been very busy with institutional and personal matters as well as projects and the Iraq 's agriculture campaign, and more.


      To answer your question Walaa'; yes the last email received

      through the group was on March 27 by George Michael.


      I have done three interviews in relation to Iraq history (besides

      my work on the film about former president Abdul Rahman Aref); one about Princess Badeea, second about Iraq 's Marshes and the third about Al-Athamiyya clock. I will be working on editing them during the summer (July and August).


      Best Regards,

      Wafaa' Al-Natheema

      Dear Walaa:
      I too have not received any email through this group since my comment
      sent on March 27.
      So I hope all is well with this group and Wafaa.  It will be nice to receive
      acknowledgement from other subscribers to see that we are still connected
      through this IRAQHistory yahoogroups.

      Thank you Walaa', George and Amr for the reminders and confirmation.

      Dear Wafaa and ALL Subscribers:


      The note below by George Michael on March 27 was the last I've received.


      Is this normal or I am not receiving any emails from this group.


      I am well aware that you were very busy in the end of March and all April

      with Iraq 's Order 81 and the International Seeds Day, but I wonder

      if anything new has happened since the email below.


      I hope this note will act as a reminder to subscribers in this group to

      drop a line saying they are there or that they received this note just

      in case you, Wafaa', are too busy to keep up with maintaining this



      Looking forward to hearing from some of you.


      Best Regards,

      Walaa' Ali

      Dear Wafaa:
      Thank you for the updated version of the list of errors and for attaching Husayn
      Al-Kurdi's list of Moslem polymaths. 
      I suggest to Husayn Al-Kurdy and to you to remove the bottom line that states
      "none of them were Persians," from his list because it gives the impression that you
      are reactionary and indirectly giving credits to falsehood or rumors, if you know
      what I mean. 
      I also suggest to include sources for Husayn's list.  This will make it easier for me
      to distribute to my list without hearing from someone arguing that it maybe unreliable
      Thank you for providing the wise and interestingly written, and hopefully well-translated,
      saying by Jalalu Eddine Al-Rumi.
