A new Government

During the last few days, there were a negotiation to form the new government. Yesterday they announce the name of the new president and his two deputies. Today they announce the name of the prime minister.

The president is Dr. Jalal al Talbani. A Kurdish from Al-Sulaimaniya. He is the boss of one of the Kurdish parties, who were fighting the Iraqi government before the occupation (insurgents).
I don't have too much knowledge about him, but one thing I didn't like, before few weeks he appeared on the TV in an interview, he said about the Iraqi flag "We will not allow for the Iraqi flag to be lifted on the land of Kurdistan".
Now we will see if he allow the flag to lift over all Iraq, or not??.

The prime minister Dr. Ibrahim al Jaafari. He is a doctor , graduated from the same college as I, but one year after me. He was very good guy, polite and honest. His talk on the TV is very encouraging, he looks very calm, educated, and neutral.
He says they will chose the ministers to different ministries according to their qualification and their fitness to the position. Which exactly what every body want.

The coming days will show the announcement of the rest of the government.
We hope it will be the end of our problems.

We need your prayers.

I watched that interview on TV. What he said was since this flag was associated with the Baath and with so many atrocities against the Kurds, they don't want to use it instead they want a new Iraqi flag that they can use and lift in Kurdistan.

Did you know the new prime minister back in your school days?

In regards to the flag and what ahmad said about it: my understanding is that the flag's three stars represent Iraq, Syria and Egypt, because there was a plan to pull together those into a single state. Perhaps a very small change in the flag would make everyone happy, instead of the radical redesign they did before that no one liked. If those green stars were replaced with say, a Kurdish symbol, a Sunni symbol, a Turkoman symbol, a Shi'te symbol, a Christian symbol, and so on with whoever else needs to be represented (Yazidis?) that would solve the problem, and leave the flag more or less the same...

Yes, Doctor. A lot of people are praying for you and your family! I'll bet you would be surprised at how many! I pray for the people of Iraq and for your family in particular every day. When I read how you were away in the North when there was danger near your house, I feel that maybe all the prayers from all your friends are having some effect. And I am grateful to God for listening!

There is a new online video of Prime Minister Jafari on the Fox News site--about six minutes. If you get a chance, watch and tell us what you think!

Well truth seeker you put alot of focus on this Ocupation government.
Most people around the world now see the joke of a some people calling themselves the govt.,when the only places they govern are Ibril and the "green zone",with the help of yankee invaders.
Look to the resistance,street protests,etc for the real power.
The Quagmire will finish as soon as the invaders leave.
Where ever the USSA goes,terrorism seems to follow,i wonder why?

Pity your family's nice blog has the comment section populated by right wing Nth Americans and secret service agents.

Good Luck
