So very sorry this young man was killed. He had such a promising future, ripped away in a minute from a violent, stupid war.

I’m so sorry to hear about yet another death. May he rest in peace.
Thanks you for giving Iraqis a voice. Words cannot express the shame and sorrow I feel for what my country has done to yours. Unfortunately, the U.S. media is hardly covering Iraq. That is why services like yours are so crucial.
It might seem like the American people are silent, but please know that a very large percentage of the population has always been opposed to the illegal invasion.

Peace to you. Please continue your courageous work.

I am saddened to hear about yet another unneeded death! You are correct sanfran the US media doesn’t cover Iraq unless it’s to show death and destruction because that it what they believe sells. I love seeing stories of real Iraqis trying to move on. I’d love to see a story of Iraqi citizens and the entire Muslim community (around the world for that matter) denouncing the violence perpetrated by extremist of their faith! Muslim is NOT a violent religion, yet that is what more than ½ the world believes about them because that is what they see everyday on TV! I am sick and tired of hearing people apologize for the US invasion of Iraq. Yes it wasn’t ‘sold’ to us for the right reasons but can you honestly think that the Iraqi people were better off under Saddam? If the average Iraqi would turn on those few extremists and stop hiding them (by not turn them in they are in essence helping them) the country could stabilize and the US could and would pull out! The average Iraqi would love nothing more than for this to all end right now. Well, the average American feels the exact same way! If the US pulled out of Iraq tomorrow what do you think would happen? Civil War, chaos, mass murder, and probably total devastation; their only hope now is to help us stabilize the country so we both can move forward! I will be praying for the innocent victims!

Saw the POD on current TV. I hope this site will help both Ali Shafeya’s family and work live on. Thank you for your efforts in direct media. I hope that people take advantage of this easy source of information in a world flooded with lack there of.

[…] Baghdad/Adhamiya, Iraq - It became common in Baghdad that if a Sunni family lived in a Shia neighborhood they may be forced to leave and vice versa. Many families were forced by militias to leave their homes if they lived in a neighborhood that was predominantly made up of the other sect. Some of them lost a family member by the hands of militias which pushed them to leave their neighborhood or fled to a nearby country such as Syria or Jordan. […]
