Very true, and there seems to be no end in sight

I graduated from Art college and i never thought of my paintbrush as a weapon, but the maniacs who go about targeting artists, writers and thinkers obviously think of it as such. This may explain why Alzahawi was killed but it does not make it easier to accept.

Thank you for stopping by.

Yet another great tragedy of this war.

i am fine Bhaskar
I was really depressed by the news about AlZahawi death, i had not heard about him or know any of his work before that day, but it saddened me very much because i had studied Arabic calligraphy in college for three years and I now what an exact and precise art form it is. When a master of such an art is killed a fortune in knowledge is killed with him.

I will do some deep-felt search as to why Iraq is such a cursed land for its inhabitants, though they are, most definitely, a proud people. ARE YOU WELL? HOW'S UR SON NOW?

From this little sample, his work is beautiful. What a shame!
Ironic how most of us think of arts and artists as "lightweights" or not very useful,  not accomplishing "real" work -- and yet artists and intellectuals seem to be the first targets of despots who want to control what we do and how we think. When we were children learning to love line and color or the way words change when they're put with other words we never dreamed the paintbrushes and pencils were weapons.

Iraq has always been a difficult country to hold together. Its people are rebelious and during the early years of the Ummayad rule they had to send them the most ruthless of their commander Alhajjaj Althaqafi who gave a very famous speach saying calling them the people of discord and hypocracy and comparing their heads to ripe fruit that should be harvested. To think that the only way that Iraq can only have peace if it has another Hajjaj or another Saddam is frightening. what ever happened to peaceful coexistence?

Iraq is passing through very sad situations. There is total anarchy .
I think this country needs an iron hand to stop mindless killings.
