From Qasem, on September 11th - 09.17.2006

[Editor’s note, this was sent to me by Qasem on September 11th, but was buried amongst other email until now, I hope it still speaks to all of you, nearly a week after the fifth anniversary. Another point, for those of you not aware, in most of the rest of the world, the date is written with the day first, thus Sept. 11th is 11/9/2006]
hi friends of Peace
Today is 11/9 ……it is a special day for the world…it is the day of attacking civilians and civilization in US ……it is a hard day and hard memory today in US……..in Ramadi ….it is hard day also as every day for us living here …..
the day started with the sound of Tanks and bulldozers crushing houses and buildings in Azizia sector ( center of Ramadi ) …..the reason for this crushing is to make snipers able to see more and sure more people will be killed by a bullet in head …..
my day was busy …I went at early morning to see a friend who has a problem and asked for help…he is living west of Ramadi ……..
most of the daytime was ok …..and I noticed US tanks moving everywhere in Tameem area …..and they crushed 2 cars …..oh yes ….the cars were parked on the right side of the street ….for American troops this is wrong ….because when the tanks move every ody should run away and no cars should be moved or parked in the street .
at 4:20 pm ….there were Iraqi soldiers inspecting houses in Malaab Area ……somebody attacked them and killed one of them …….the Iraqi soldiers fired everywhere …and get mad with the houses that they can see….
US troops ignored them …they gave them enough time to be hated more by the people and families …and kids who scared…..and as usual streets closed by the wild US snipers ……they never install a sign that shows the way is closed but they kill first one who moving and let his dead body to be the sign for the closed street.
there are sounds of sniping somewhere …may be everywhere ..
it is getting dark …and some people are trying to find way to their houses….no way …
me and some people were sitting near a generous house ….the family in this house gave us cold water and invited us to get in and spent the night in …..may be no choice after 30 minutes …because it will be dark …and for the last 3 years Ramadi people not allowed to see the nighttime outside their houses…..
“they gone ….they gone now …….come into your houses ” an old man shouted on us …he is standing on the side of street that was dangerouse …
then we moved …all of us ….
then one man said “do not walk togather ….let us seems few people….if we walked together they will kill us ”
yes ..that is right …large numbers of people will make them attack …because they are suspect us as group of fighters
I walked alone ….it is few meters to reach my house now …. I should jump gunwires and some concrete walls …..
I got in my house to feel that ( most of my hard day had gone ) …we still have the night ….in Darkness without electricity …in the heat, 48 C(118 F)
I noticed that US troops failed to reach the target of Ramadi control ………sure they can’t ,,,,,control can’t be behind guns ..control should come with the mind, not guns .
my brother told me that he is ok ……
oh yes, I did not tell you ……my brother arrested yesterday by US troops ….there was no reason they arrested him in street to ask him some quistions …..such as where is fighters hide…and whom they are …names ….so on..
after he arrested in street ,US soldiers took him to the Iraqi Army …..and there, my brother abused but not too much …all what he faced is some hits on his face ……
he told me that the Iraqi officer asked him about fighters and what he know about them …my brother said I do not know any one of them ….I do not know!!!
so… Iraqi Army failed again and again to get help from one of Ramadi people ……do U know why ??
Because my people sure that new Iraqi Army is criminal and bad …as US soldiers are……my people sure about this and may be you are too ….but my people not sure that whom Attacks US troops is criminal ,in fact ,we believe that most of fighters whom attacks US troops are local people whose lost their kids or brothers or families …..they lost them one day when a US soldier killed them.
shall we feel sorry for US people whom killed at 9/11 ……we already felt at the day of 9/11 , but now we dont have time to feel sorry …we have to take care of the kids whom lost their fathers and families …and take care of dead bodies in streets that was sign to close the streets …..signs made by US snipers ……we so busy …to be alive …. ….but be sure that my people are the most people who can understand the feelings of 11/9 victims ….and most people whom can know what is the deep sadness to lose the life of somebody ……..as resuilt, my people are able to understand the feels of son who lost his father at 9/11 …or wife lost her husband at 9/11 …or losing any life at 9/11
I hope that the world try to make 9/11 day for peace to give peace for the people whom dead …….instead of making 9/11 reason to kill peace ..
thanks
