  9. .. AP – Protesters burn tyres to block a road during a demonstration in Sulaimaniyah, 260 kilometers (160 miles) … . Slideshow:Iraq . By YAHYA BARZANJI, Associated Press Yahya Barzanji, Associated Press – Sat Feb 19, 1:52 pm ET SULAIMANIYAH, Iraq – Demonstrators thronged streets in northern Iraq Saturday to demand justice over a deadly shooting at a protest earlier this week. In Baghdad, hundreds of orphans and widows rallied to call on the government to take care of them. The uprisings sweeping the Middle East have galvanized many in Iraq, one of the rare democracies in the region, to demand better services from their leaders. The demonstrations in the capital and the northern city of Sulaimaniyah were peaceful, but five protesters were killed earlier this week. A few thousand demonstrators took to the streets in downtown Sulaimaniyah, demanding that those responsible for a shooting two days earlier that killed two people and injured nearly 50 be held responsible. The crowds shouted: "Down, down, with Massoud Barzani!" referring to the president of the three provinces that make up the autonomous Kurdish region. On Thursday, hundreds of protesters had demonstrated in front of the offices of Barzani's Kurdistan Democratic Party in Sulaimaniyah, 160 miles (260 kilometers) northeast of Baghdad. They pelted the building with stones, and Kurdish guards on top of the building opened fire. Officials from the KDP say their guards were forced to defend themselves from the crowd; Barzani has appealed for calm and vowed to investigate. The demonstrators were angry with the tight grip with which the two main ruling parties in the Kurdish north dominate the region and its economy, making it almost impossible for people not affiliated with either one to find a decent job or start a business. Saturday's rally was largely peaceful, but at one point security forces fired shots overhead to disperse the crowd; an official at the hospital said 12 people were treated after being hit by stones, indicating some scuffling had gone on. The official did not want to be identified because he was not authorized to speak to the media. Earlier at the city's university, about a 1,000 students also rallied to demand Barzani apologize. The controversy extended to parliament in Baghdad where lawmakers loyal to Barzani got in a shouting match with a representative from Goran, an upstart political movement in the Kurdish region that is trying to challenge the grip of the two main Kurdish political parties on the levers of power. As the Goran member was describing how the protesters were not armed and carrying out a peaceful protest, a Kurdish lawmaker shouted: "This not true!" About 1,500 people rallied in Baghdad in a demonstration organized by non-governmental organizations looking to highlight the plight of some of Iraq's most vulnerable citizens. The hundreds of thousands of women who lost their husbands in wars over the decades or children who have lost parents are particularly vulnerable. One of those in attendance was 9-year-old Ahmed Nasir, who lost his father in 2006 in a roadside bombing in western Baghdad. "We have seven children at home," he said. "My mother takes care of us by sewing clothes, and we have no salary." In a statement, the organizations behind the demonstration said they want the government to give each orphan a monthly stipend. ___ Associated Press writer Saad Abdul-Kadir contributed to this report from Baghdad
  10. founf this elsewhere and thought i would pass on: : No Entry into Iraq… Next 72 hrs… February 19th, 2011 04:13 pm · Posted in CHATS & POSTS (Iraqi Dinar Info), TIDBIT: This is the 2nd email from a site member I’ve receive to this effect today. It appears this is confirmation and legitimate. No entry into Iraq for at least the next 72 hours. -I have written you before, but only when I have news. I work in Iraq as a govt contractor. i am home in the states on leave and I am supposed to fly back to the Middle East tomorrow. My friend called me and said they announced at my base that the Iraqi Govt is denying any entrance visas into Iraq for at least the next 72 hours. this is a very unusal circumstance. I will now be stuck in Dubai when I arrive until the restriction is lifted. We can only hope it is because the RV is about to take place??
  11. wow a -1 for reporting news. here is your link http://reut.rs/ewn7uT reuters dated 1-23-11
  12. Wed, Jan 19 2011Critics alarmed as Iraq's Maliki centralizes power Tweet ThisShare on LinkedIn Share on Facebook0diggsdiggRelated TopicsWorld » By Ahmed Rasheed BAGHDAD | Sun Jan 23, 2011 12:03pm EST BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki has won a court ruling placing independent bodies like the central bank and the electoral agency under the cabinet, a centralization of power that critics are calling a "coup." Maliki's government made the request to the supreme court in December before he was reappointed later that month to a second term, and the court ruling in his favor came through last Tuesday, generating little controversy at first. The independent agencies affected are supposed to be monitored by parliament according to the constitution, hastily drawn up in the chaotic aftermath of the 2003 U.S.-led invasion. Maliki argued that where the language describing parliament's monitoring powers over the agencies was ambiguous, the bodies should be attached to the cabinet. The court agreed. The main agencies affected are the Central Bank of Iraq, the Independent Higher Electoral Commission, anti-corruption watchdog the Integrity Commission and the High Commission for Human Rights. "The court views that the term 'monitoring by' is not clear enough to place these under parliament's authority, therefore they should be attached to the cabinet," the ruling said. The decision alarmed critics who view with suspicion glimpses of authoritarian leanings in some of Maliki's actions. The democracy bestowed on Iraq by U.S. administrators after Sunni dictator Saddam Hussein was ousted is fragile and unique in a region accustomed to strongmen and presidents for life. Its future is murky as U.S. forces prepare to withdraw this year. "We consider the request of Nuri al-Maliki to the court to be a coup against the constitution that puts Iraq's democracy on the line," said Haider al-Mulla, a member of parliament and spokesman for the Sunni-backed Iraqiya bloc. CRITICISM OF MOVE Iraqiya, led by ex-premier Iyad Allawi, won the most seats in an election last March but was unable to muster the majority needed to form a government. It ended up a junior partner in the new government formed by Maliki, a Shi'ite. Legal experts and analysts decried the supreme court decision, which a judicial spokesman said could not be appealed. "Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki is seeking more powers to control his government. He wants to have a strong government," said a prominent lawyer, Tariq Harb. Amman-based researcher Yahya al-Kubaisy of the Iraqi Center For Strategic Studies called it an "unforgiveable mistake." "It's a clear bid by Maliki to monopolize powers," he said. The cabinet groups more than 40 ministerial positions from various political parties, not all allied to Maliki, following torturous horsetrading over nine months to form the government. Some officials supported the court ruling, saying ambiguity over parliament's powers of supervision had allowed some of the independent agencies to be hijacked by political interests. Deputy Central Bank Governor Ahmed al-Buraihi said the decision should have been made a long time back and would not affect the bank's daily operations. "Aren't central bank decisions of importance to the cabinet? Shouldn't the cabinet care about an institution that manages $60 billion and which manages its overseas funds?" he said. Maliki media adviser Ali al-Moussawi said the criticism was an attempt to cast the government in a bad light and undermine its efforts to be strong. Maliki has said a strong government is needed to fight a weakened but still deadly insurgency. "There was a flaw and conflict between the work of these independent commissions and the work of the executive authority ... the government sought to solve this issue through legal channels," Moussawi said.
