Hundreds if not Thousands of Iraqi's are seeking Temporary Refuge anywhere in the World, It doesn’t matter where as long as they can keep alive.
I received an Email this morning from a colleague of mine who managed to get her family away from Baghdad to the UAE, however, Herself and her husband being both petrochemical Engineers have had Hell over there, competition is very high even between Iraqi’s and you could get sacked very easy, specially if its one of the small competitive companies there.
Iraqi’s are also unwelcome in other Arab countries unless you’re a young prostitute with references from Sheikhs and pimps and you can see that in Dubai Airport.
An Iraqi cannot get a Visa to North Africa including Egypt, Yemen, Jordan, Lebanon, the Gulf States (on rare occasions only UAE, Qatar).
In Qatar the State police have distributed a pamphlet to the Iraqi community telling them what they can discuss in public and on telephones and what they can discuss or mention.
In Saudi one main field on the Saudi Application form is you have to declair your Religion and what Sect you follow.
What we have here is a very awkward situation, the U.S., Britain, Australia and other countries of the coalition have declared that they have come to Iraq to free, liberate etc. including (Rebuild), but things have taken a different way and we have deaths death threats unemployment etc.
Now, how about giving these people a chance?
Like when an intelligent Iraqi is awarded a Fulbright Scholarship why not let his family join him?
Like all these thousands of Masters, Ph.D. and Bachelor degree Holders are not given a chance to seek temporary refugee in the U.S. Britain and Australia.
What do you have against them? Why leave them to die and live in undignified circumstances.
You did the same to the South Africans during the end days of Apartheid when they tried to make a decent life in U.K.
my conclusion is this.
Although I do not believe in conspiracy theories but what I see the following facts that everyone with a clear conscious would also notice, A country that has its economy, Military capabilities and its society destroyed.
Targeting the Technical and highly skilled personnel by guaranteeing there death, by imposing every trick in the book to keep them in this battlefield.
Give people a chance to live, they offer there expertise.
Do you know how many Iraq scientists have been embraced to live and work in Syria and Iran?
What’s wrong with you!
