Worthless Memoire and Worthless Presidency

 الموضوع والكاتب جلال الطالباني شواربك بيضاء لكن كلامك أسود ؟ - عادل الخياط تاريخ النشر Friday, September 11, 2009

This is an excellent article. Yes we heard that Altalbani would write his memoire. But before he is doing this, did he apologize to the Iraqis for embracing Sadddam or the killings of Pesht Ashan? Unless, he did this, among other things, his memoire would be worth nothing as his presidency is. He most likely would distribute his memoire among only those who are impressionable and naive for free because hardly anyone would buy it.

Dear Mr. Alasadi
I agree with many things you refer to in your article or message and wish to comment on your poignant remark regarding a taboo (or should I say a cancer?) plaguing the party, namely, the refrain to criticize the Secretary. This refrain seems to be rooted in the predominately patriarchal discourse of the party, in which the ‘glorification’ of the Secretary is used, psychoanalytically speaking, as a defense mechanism against oedipal castration fears. The worst the party scores in an election or in a political battle, the more the sense of defeat and the castration fears are, and the more evident is the clinging onto the infantile ‘imaginary’ vision of a perfect, omnipotent Father, namely, the Secretary (the imaginary register is a psychological developmental stage and is evident also in people with narcissistic personality- Narcissus in the Greek mythology fell in love with the (image of) himself, a self-love that lead to his demise (You could find more about this and other issues below in my article, The epidemic of the veil and the plights of the Phallic discourse

The communiqué consists of good words, but what we need is actions, not words. What we still see is rather words and more words-and no one can live off words. A recent example illustrates this point. The party’s website http://www.iraqcp.org/ carries an article about a saponaceous’ demonstration held recently by the widowed women of Bagdad. The contribution of the communist party was just of an onlooker, rather than an active participant or a leader, and consisted merely of writing a report about this demonstration. A question justifiably poses itself’; why the party does not take the initiative in such matters and start leading people on the ground, instead of mainly barricading itself in the party’s centers or the Green Zone (yes, I know about the demonstration in Alrisafa, but it is too little and so late, and much more should be done). Other political forces would certainly take over if the communist party did not adopt a leading role, since we know from natural sciences like physics or social sciences like political science that nature-social milieu hates vacuum.

Polygamy is degrading and humiliating to all women and should be prohibited, and to legalize it under the disguise of the word acrobatics of Islam is as a laughable matter as it is insulting to the majority of women.
You speak of the animalistic nature of men???, that is, their sexual instincts and drives. Well what about the sexual desires and motives of women. If you agree that women have also sexual desires then you should agree that polygamy should be for men and women alike, otherwise it should be prohibited and your religious theorization the lay psychology convinces no one.

As you rightly indicate, the Iraqi Communist Party should continue and even intensify using all possible means to advocate the needs of the oppressed people of Iraq, that is, the vast majority of Iraqi people. It should work actively with people on the ground, rather than wait passively for people to attend its party’s centers-and they wouldnt attend. Democracy should be practiced from the bottom, not from the top.
Working with people on the ground and advocating their needs is the only way for the party to proves its being a real community party, being the people’s party, not the ‘Yes Sir Party’ of Almaliki and his corrupt Cos.

I agree with many things said in this interview and wish to note some of the ills plaguing the leaderships of both the Iraqi Communist party (ICP) and the Iraqi Kurdistan Communist Party (IKCP).
1. Leaderships of both partiers, as Mr. Ahmad indicates, have arrogantly distanced themselves from people on the ground and preferred barricading themselves in the empty parties’ centers and the infamous Green Zone. This has lead inescapably to the loss of parties population and base, as evidenced by last elections, as well as by the failure of the ICP to push through even for minimal measures that ensure the lives of its members, as for example, the failure of the ICP to get the government to find and arrest the killers of the intellectual Kamel Shiaa. The question is: Why does the ICP keep holding onto the myth of change from inside and thus keeps being a part of an immeasurably corrupt and sectarian government, a government which is contributing to, or at least keeps silent on , the killings of party’s comrades. Is not that a treason by the party ? Also, the loss of contacts with peopl

 الموضوع والكاتب ( صانع ) بلند وحسين مردان .. صفاء الحيدري لا عذاب يشبه عذابه - رباح آل جعفر تاريخ النشر Thursday, August 27, 2009

Dear Mr . Rabah
Because your friend, Mr. Safa, having been the way he had been, I would feel somewhat reluctant to ask whether he saw a psychiatrist or neurologist. Anyhow, I would like to note that Mr. Safa seemed to have suffered from a neurological disorder called Tourette’s Syndrome (though this is only a retrospective and a tentative diagnosis). People with this syndrome might feel the compulsion to involuntarily utter obscene words. The technical term for this phenomenon is coprolalia (from Greek, Kopros means ‘dung’: and lalia means ‘talk’). This neurological condition could be associated with the psychiatric disorder of anxiety, which Mr. Safa seemed to have had as well.
I admire your ability to describe in such elegance something, which we, psychiatrists, usually tend to express in a cold, clinical language.
It was obviously so difficult not to have loved such a lively and intriguing person and his death must have been a real loss for you.
Look forward to reading more of your most interesting words.
Best regards

We have heard these promises from Almaliki over and over again, and nothing whatsoever has happened. On the contrary, security has got much worse. So why should we trust him? Please, give me one reason why we should trust him now. The question is: if he is serious now, which I very much doubt, then why has not he been serious before (not discovering yet those assassinated kamil Shiaa, for example). Well he has to say the things he is saying now, because of the upcoming election, because the last terrible massacres have proved that his pervious talks about improvement in security were just boasting and a propagandistic show off, and because he is not going to lose anything by making new promises because he and his government anyhow are neither countable nor credible.
Also combating terrorism in Iraq is not a matter of security forces alone, despite its importance; it is first and foremost a matter of combating social, political and economic injustice in Iraq. His talks prove that he is totally unserious in his promises; Almaliki and his government are doing their best not to allevi

You rightly refer to some psychological ills plaguing the democratic and leftist movement in Iraq. Certainly psychological complexes, some of which you refer to, like self- overinflation, disregard of other views, ‘delusional’ belief in the automatic success of the historical cause, rather than through hard work with people on the ground, are evident.
I cite a couple of examples here and I am not sure how much psychology contributes to their cause-in psychology one can never be sure unless the phenomenon at hand is subjected to direct investigation, though failing that does not devalue (an attempt at) analysis.
The first example has been discussed ad nauseum, but nevertheless remains of vital importance and one should never gives up. It is the question of why the website (www.iraqcp.org) does not open (as for example, Ahewar) for democratic exchange of views; THE MOTTO IS DEMOCRACY FOR IRAQ (right?). A psychological assumption for the cause (and it is only an assumption) is that the editor (I refer to the editor as a single person, but it could be an editorship that shows

Dear Dr Habib
You have not stressed the fact that the whole Iraqi society is living in a crisis, and these last explosions are just one manifestation of this crisis. The other aspects of the crisis, as well have repeated ad nauseum, are the endemic corruption, the widespread unemployment and poverty, the sectarian unjust system, the violation of human rights, particularly of woman and sexual minorities, supression of freedom of expression, devastated infrastructure, unparallel ecological contamination, millions of widows and orphans, etc.
Hence, to state, as some parties have hastily and in a ready-made fashion did, , that the Alkaida, albathists etc. are to blame for the last explosions is saying nothing (according to the theory of information it is just a noise, as it is devoid of any useful information) as it has not been based on any investigative work and therefore its misleading. Also, such declarations do not address the root-causes of the explosions, namely, the inhumanly unfair society Iraqis live in. As this unfairness and injustice continue, we will continue s

Dear Dr Habib
Oddly enough, you still seem to believe there is an Iraqi government that is keen on safeguarding the security of Iraqi people. The Wednesdays’ coordinated attacks indicate once again that this government is a total failure, a religious-political mafia of corrupt and utterly incompetent politicians who are interested solely in getting wealthier at the expense of the vast majority of Iraqi people. Hundreds, if not thousands, of people have been killed or injured at least in the last year. Has this (mis)government been able to arrest any of those committed the vast majority of these crimes? The answer is a simple NO.
The government has no shame, pride or national interest; otherwise it would have resigned a long time ago.
Most importantly, one should never forget that the current politicians should be held responsible by the future government before a court of law for their crimes and corruption.

Dear Mr Alasadi
Many thanks for this wonderful article. I, however, would like to call this barbarous procedure ‘Female Genital Mutilation’, rather than use the somewhat benign label of ‘circumcision’. There is a website with this name devoted to combating this appalling habit in Kurdistan. (http://www.stopfgmkurdistan.org/).
International organizations like WHO (http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs241/en/) and Amnesty international (http://www.amnestyusa.org/violence-against-women/female-genital-mutilation--fgm/page.do?id=1108439) are strongly opposed to such a procedure.
As you rightly indicate this procedure can and will have devastating psychological and physical consequences on the girl and would-be woman. Immediate complications include infections and bleeding, which can certainly lead to other complications and even death. Later complications include psychological trauma that would associate genital organs with pain and suffering, something that would certainly impair healthy sexual relationships. Later physical complications could include what we called ‘d

What the Presidency Council is calling for is a clear violation of the Iraqi constitution that ensures the freedom of expression. If someone writes something by which members of the Council feel wronged they could go to a court of law and the court will decide who is wrong and who is right. The call by the Council is unconstitutional and all thinkers, intellectuals and journalists of Iraq should come out and speak out against this another violation of constitution and of freedom of expression.
The members of Council neither holy nor are they above the law. That should be clear to them.
The call, however, should come as little or no surprise. Someone who has committed a crime of Pesht Ashan and never called for an official investigation into this matter to clear his name of the ‘accusations’ would never become a democrat. Sure he could claim being a democrat, bur we all know that actions speak louder than words and that the emperor wears no clothes.

We have also called on them to open their websites for democratic exchange of views, but nothing has changed. The leaderships of both parties have sold the parties to the political and class opponents for their own interests. These leaderships are a disgrace and have nothing to do with communism whatsoever. They have to be replaced immediately and urgently, as you rightly indicate, by ones that really represent the oppressed, exploited and disenfranchised people of Iraq.

Your views of sexuality are non- scientific and absurd to say the least. Homosexuality in medicine and psychiatry is not a mental disorder. And I don’t now the level of expertise you have in this field, but it seems to amount to naught. What constitutes illness is not a matter of interpretation by you or anybody else. If you are biased against homosexuality, then that it is your privilege. But you cannot create illnesses by distorting facts or showing such an ignorance of them. Please try to educate yourselves about these matters before writing. Also, there is nothing in the Iraqi constitution that prevents homosexuality or transgender. Hence any discrimination or abuse of homosexuals or transgender is illegal and should be harshly punished by law. Your words are a disgrace. What cannot you preach love, respect and tolerance for others who happen to be different, rather than be the bearer of hatred, prejudices and intolerance?

Dear Mr. Jamal
Thank you for this article. However, I take issue with you conclusion that capitalism, rather than religion, is to blame. I have some brief comments here.
1. Religion, as we know, is not a unified theoretical construct and each religion and its holy book is subject to many historical interpretations. We witness that in Christianity and Islam for example.
2. There is undeniably firm connection between religion and capitalism, which Marx had already detailed. On the US dollar, we read “IN GOD WE TRUST’.
3. Religion, or at least in its name, humanity has witnessed many dreadful wars and tortures, that is even before the capitalist era.
4. Socialism is not the solution if it does not uphold human rights. A communist dictatorial regime, as in North Korea, is as equally bad as the Taliban in Afghanistan.
Have a great trip*.

This is an excellent article, which poignantly voices many of our thoughts. I just wish to add that the party, despite paying a lip service to democracy, is undemocratic in its website and other media. I, among many others, have repeatedly called on the party to open its website to comments, as in the case of Ahewar, in order to tech all of us how to converse in a democratic fashion, and to enrich the ideological and intellectual thinking among members and supporters.

The other problem is the hieratical structure of the party and the designations of its organizational structure.
