An Average Iraqi

An Average Iraqi is just a fictional character whose....well, fictional. I will use this character to make a comparison between him and real human beings like myself or any one else.

Name:Hassan
Location:Baghdad, Iraq

My name is Hassan Kharrufa. I am a 20 year old Iraqi student. I study civil engineering at the Department of Building and Construction at Al-Jami3a Al-Taknologia (The Tecknology Univirsity), Baghdad, Iraq.

Unwillingness to understand

  Just a while ago i recieved a message from someone in France. I guess many of you have heard of the kidnapped French jouranlist; Florence Aubanas and her guide in january, 5th. So this message was about her, the sender sent with the message another message for her and asked if i can post it in my weblog. So here is my answer to him:


Unwillingness to understand



Florence,



  Now it's been 38 days since you disappeared and I feel the omnipresence of your absence.


  Absence of a journalist involved in the defense of democracy values; absence of a very appreciated woman.


  Now it's 38 days there is a lack in the journalist profession, as if it was missing some letters in the word "liberty". Or as if an arrow -the arrow of intolerance- sanked into "liberty".



  Your absence, this lack, this emptiness are growing every day. And I stumble over the sentence "unwillingness to understand".



  That's absolutely certain that the pen of the journalists and the image of the photographs are essential defences facing the war, facing exactions, facing corruption. Your articles, as those of your colleagues, are so much pillars for democracy. One of these pillars will lack, and democracy will shake! So your presence in Iraq disturbs. As Ingrid Bettancourt in Colombia also does. As Enso Baldoni did. But I still do not understand how one can kidnap or murder



  Then, which French people could ignore that you disappeared ? Which one and more, which journalist ? Which student in a school of journalism ? Nevertheless, this morning, I read only 650 messages on Liberation's forum and hardly 1200 on that of "Reporters without frontiers" Hardly 1800 support and sympathy messages. I read them all. Only a few come from colleagues. Even so, certainly your kidnappers have direct access to these. Since the beginning of the invasion of Iraq, we noticed that terrorist and islamist fighters are masters in the art of communication with internet. But, where? Where are the supports of thousands of journalists, press correspondants, photographs, local reporters, students in journalism? The more the days flow, the less I understand these absences



  So Florence, all that, is too much. Much too much.
Get back soon! It will give meaning to the word "liberty", still drastically reduced this morning. Then, I hope we will work together to resolve these unwillingness to understand. For no more Abdel Hussein Khazaal, Guy-Andre Kieffer, Fred Nerac, Giuliana Sgrena and many others at the cover of world newspapers or sticked to the front of town halls!

Florence Aubanas, Giuliana Sgrena, Enzo Baldoni and other couragious journalists have tried and are still trying to report about what is happening inside Iraq. I do sincerely hope that Iraqis will take over some of the work these journalists try and tried to do: critically questioning, searching and hopefully finding and describing the facts, events and developments. Let it know. Dangers of what even Robert Fisk recently described as 'hotel journalism' are big. The dangers of press-conference journalism with its pre-cooked declarations also. Let's not mention the 'embedded' sort. It is necessary that people go out there, ask the questions, tell the world.
