New GV Posting

I have been remiss in my duties to you, dear Global Voices readers, in not posting about the Kurdish Blogosphere for three weeks. Today I will try to catch you up in the ongoings of the Kurds in this new year. As to why I missed my articles, let’s just say that planning a wedding is much more of a daunting task than I thought that it would be.

For mental ease on my part, we are going to go blog by blog instead of thematically. The Kurdistan Bloggers Union besides New Year’s Greetings has two other posts of mild interest: One, about the media coverage of the bird flu and civil war rumors in Iraq, the comments on this post reveal more about the issues that the original post; the second post (which I admittedly wrote) is about an evening with former US Ambassador Joe Wilson and his comments on the Middle East.

Land of the Sun:Kurdistan has a post about the famous Van Cat, once you see pictures of this distinctive cat I am sure that you will remember seeing it in many places.

Sami from Iraqi Thoughts has returned and gives us his impressions of the December voting in Iraq:

What saddens me is that in my heart I know the best people capable of turning Iraq around are not popular inside of Iraq and the problem still lies in so many lists.

Hiwa from Hiwa Hopes writes about the Turkish schools in Northern Iraq/Southern Kurdistan, and his hopes for a less corrupt government in Southern Kurdistan. He also has a fun post about a non-smoking Kurdish village.

Pearls of Iraq has Kurdish proverbs, part one and part two. She also continues to give us weekly updates on the reconstruction efforts in Southern Kurdistan, including part two, part three, and the weekly update for this week.

From Holland to Kurdistan writes about the importance of the recent conviction of Dutch businessman Van Anraat:

The main suppliers of deadly weapons will walk free. Frans van Anraat is only one of the guilty ones. Despite this; the court confirmed that other suspects that delivered chemicals to Saddam could face trial too. Something I missed in the short news items of news agencies.

Vladimir also posted several times about the bird flu in northern Kurdistan and how the Turkish health ministers are not handling the situation and letting it reach crisis proportions. Other posts include rumors of a movie to be made about Mustafa Barzani and the salon skincare craze of Kurdish men in Southern Kurdistan.

Roj Bash has a fabulous post detailing the defense at the University of Sorbonne, Paris, of Saywan Barzani’s thesis in politicial science : The Iraqi Kurdistan Question, 1991-2005.

I find that I can’t say enough about the work that Save Roj TV is doing and I just recommend that you make this blog a daily regular on your reading list.

If you want to know about the lastest updates on the bird flu in Turkey and Northern Kurdistan Rasti is the place to go, as he has multiple posts on this topic I will not link to all of them just his main page. Of course the bird flu is not all that Rasti has written about, for instance he has a great post about memories of Kurdish bread and false claims of Kurdish gangsters.

Last up on this short novel I am apparently writing is a reminder that on this weekly article I try to cover what is being written in the english Kurdish blogs, however an alternative project of mine Kurdistan Blog Count attempts to follow the Kurdish blogs in all languages. Also if you are interested there is also a Kurdish Blogs Aggregator that is regularly updated with each new Kurdish blog found.

  1. There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed his desire to become a great writer. When asked to define “great” he said, “I want to write stuff that the whole world will read, stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level, stuff that will make them scream, cry, howl in pain and anger!” He now works for Microsoft, writing error messages. 😀

  2. Hi all!
    Christmas Day falls on December 25. It is preceded by Christmas Eve on December 24, and in some countries is followed by Boxing Day on December 26. Some Eastern Orthodox Churches celebrate Christmas on January 7, which corresponds to December 25 on the Julian calendar. December 25 as a birthdate for Jesus is merely traditional, and is not thought to be his actual date of birth.Good luck!
