Iraq Kids

This Blog's purpose is to inform and dialog about conditions facing orphan, fatherless, homeless or abandoned street children in Iraq. Another concern addressed on Iraq Kids is the condition of schools in Iraq, primarily rural schools that have been largely ignored during re-building.

International news from swissinfo, the Swiss news platform

Baghdad car bombs kill 34 children
Why don't the Imams condem the killing of children? The insurgency in Iraq including Islamic Fundamentalists are killing Muslim children with apparent impunity. Killing the most innocent, the children, is an sin for which there can be no forgiveness. Koran [6.140] "They are lost indeed who kill their children foolishly without knowledge, and forbid.what Allah has given to them forging a lie against Allah; they have indeed gone astray, and they are not the followers of the right course" All children are inncoent without regard to their religious, ethnic or national background. The slaughter of children in Russia, Iraq, Sudan or anywhere in the world is vile and reprehensible behavior carried out by cowardly, odious, repugnant vermin, a cancer on all humanity that must be eradicated from the face of the earth. I ask again for everyone to condem these pigs. I ask the leaders of Islam to speak againist murder of any children anywhere.

    Some info on world population trends:

    http://www.prb.org/pdf04/04WorldDataSheet_Eng.pdf

    Iraq, in particular, has a population of about 25 million now. More than 40% is under the age of 15. Total population is expected to grow by another 15 million over the next 20 years.

    Doesn't it seem obvious that the whole world will have to make an enormous investment in the future of these children? Education will be parmount. (That's why I contribute to Iraqkids.)

    And new voices - from their world, not ours - must emerge that will lead them into the future in a peaceful and constructive way. Who among them will stand strongly against the Bin Ladens?

    I hope Iraq can, over months and years, become a place where democratic debate can take place. And I hope that the U.S. will be fierce in its determination to assist the Iraqi people in achieving that end. One has to hope that perhaps these new voices that are required can evolve in that kind of environment.

    If that doesn't happen, what kind of world will be left to our children?

    "They are lost indeed who kill their children foolishly without knowledge"

    Sounds like Americans, sending their children off to die in wars, without comprehending what they are actually killing and dying for (i.e., foolishly, in ignorance, or without knowledge). You can use religious quotations, from any religion, to make any point you want, but it doesn't mean your point is valid.
