المئات من طلبة السادس الإعدادي يتظاهرون في بغداد احتجاجاً على قرار "الغش الجماعي" ويهددون بالتحول إلى "إرهابيين" →

How to destruct a nation? Iraq’s Ministry of Education fails all students of Grade 12 in more than 15 schools in a Baghdad district due to false and fabricated claims of “collective cheating”. We might be able to realize the immediate devastation brought by the violence and bloodshed that has been going in Iraq for years, but the consequences of such actions will only be seen after many years.

The Sorrowful Dawn الفجر الحزين is an Iraqi film that was produced shortly after the events of Al Amiriya Air-Raid-Shelter bombing in Baghdad. The one-hour film portrays the lives of Iraqis from different social, economic, and religious backgrounds as they cope with the events preceding the attack on Al Amiriya Shelter by the U.S Air Force, mainly relating to those who took shelter in “Public Shelter 25” in Al Amiriya district.

Al Amiriyah shelter was bombed on 13th of February 1991 by the United States Airforce. During operation Desert Storm, the U.S Airforce deliberately and belligerently targeted the underground shelter leaving more than 400 people dead, the vast majority were women and children. 

The film is directed by one of Iraq’s most famous directors Salah Karam صلاح كرم, who has directed films and shows like “The Wolves of the Night” and “Men of Shadow”.  Real scenes from the events of the bombing are employed throughout the film providing a great deal of authenticity to the story. In addition to the beautiful and emotionally charging background music by Naseer Shamma نصير شمة, the film features a group of Iraq’s elite actors and actresses such as Yussef Al Ani يوسف العاني, Asiya Kamal آسيا كمال, Hadel Kamel هديل كامل, and Bahjat Al Juboori بهجت الجبوري

I highly recommend you watch this beautifully directed and written film on YoutubeYes, it is in Arabic, but the film presents itself in a very universal manner that I felt even those who don’t understand Arabic can relate to.

Kiss Me قبّليني is originally a revolutionary Iranian song مرا ببوس dating back to the late 1940s/early 1950s written by poet and political activist Haidar Riqabi حيدر رقابى (aka Halah هاله) and sung by Hasan Golnaraghi حسن گلنراقى; there is a very beautiful and haunting home video of him singing it with friends dating back to 1992. Some sources claim that the lyrics were meant as a letter from a father to his daughter prior to his execution by the Shah’s government. Here, Iraqi musician Ja’afar Hassan is heard singing it in Arabic at a cultural event in 2004 in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
