The fourteenth of December


Sad and happy events happened at the first day at work after
Eid, at about 9 am, we knew that a very famous prof.
surgeon was shot, he is also the dean of the medical college in mosul .we were all shocked and awfully sad and did not know how serious his injuries were, and whether he was still a life or not!!!. Many famous surgeons rushed to the emergency department and immediately undergo seplenectomy, we heard the details of his condition and everything happened in the operation room and our emotions were swinging up and down during his operation, feeling very frustrated and praying for him all the day .his medical students, colleagues, relatives, neighbors, nearby shop owners rushed to donate their blood. I returned home depressed with bad headache and immediately had a long nap to escape from the reality. I did not leave my bed till noon time to prepare dinner .TV was on, when I read the subtitle news about the Iraqi journalist that throw Bush during his conference with his shoes. But I didn't see the video. During dinner I told my daughter, but she didn't comment. While I was talking with her, BD the Iraqi blogger sent me an SMS telling me that Bush was humiliated in an unbelievable way, and telling me that he was looking for the video in the internet and TV channels. In fact I did not have time to look for the video as I had to wash the dishes and watch my favorite series (gray's anatomy).next day at work every body was talking about bush and the brave Iraqi journalist, telling jokes and poems, there I saw the video in my mate cell phone, my daughters came back home with funny jokes and stories. And we kept seeing the video over and over.

"Asia cell" the company of cell phone services made large profits during the last few days because large no. of Iraqis were exchanging SMS jokes about Bush.

I felt terribly sad when I heard about the attack. He is the best surgeon in Mosul. We need to pray that he would survive.

PS: I think there are some words/sentences missied at the first few lines.

I am sorry the war criminal Bush did not understand the extent of the insult in Iraqi culture. He is even more ignorant of others than many Americans. I only am sorry, every Iraqi in the room did not toss their shoes as well.

It is such an unspeakable tragedy that so may doctors and professors have been targeted for killings. Along with those who have had to flee the country, Iraq in the future will be so much more impoverished. It is just these well educated people Iraq will need to be restored to a healthy civilized community.

I admire your courage in staying in Mosul. May you and your family stay safe.
