Yesterday... I witness the most horrible thing since I got here in
Baghdad.. I was standing with some friends in the street.. and saw a guy
coming out from a house.. his eyes were coverd, his mouth was shut.. and
his hands were tied.. the house was across the street just about 20
meters away from us.. the guy came a cross the street without seeing and
went to a shop.. he was shouting.. untie me.. open my eyes.. some people
ran to help him, his only words were.."please take me to my house...
they will kill me".. so the people just helped him.. and hired a taxi
for him.. then we heard his story from the people of the house that he
came out from..
they said that they were sitting in their back garden.. waiting until
the time of eating comes.. (they were fasting as it Ramahdan now).. they
said suddenly... a body jumped into the garden from the back fence of
the house... at first they said that they thought he was dead.. but the
guy just stood him self up... and began to move.. they're were girls
sitting in the garden as well, so they started to scream as they were
very scared.. because his view was very scary..(I mean I freacked out
when I saw him), after the girls started to scream.. the guy said
"please, don't scream..I'm kidnapped..the kidnappers will hear you", the
girls just didn't stop screaming.. so he ran out from the front door of
the house..where we saw him coming out.
At first we thought that he was kidnapped and being held in that house..
but then we got the whole story..
About the people in the street.. they were confused.. whether should
they help him?? or should they not??some people just ran to help him at the moment that they saw him.. some people didn't move a finger.. because they were afraid of the
kidnappers.. thats how's the situation now.. people are afraid to help
An owner of a shop near by in the same street happens to know the guy who was
kidnapped.. after few hours of the scene.. we went again out to the
street.. the shop owner said that he contacted the parents of the
kidnapped guy.. and they said that they recieved their son.. and now
he's on his way to Arbil.. just to escape from the kidnappers.
In the same neibouhood.. in the evening of that night.. an armed guy
riding a motorbic.. just opend fire on a mosque three blocks away from
the same street.. just without reason..(I think he was just bored.. and
thought to waste some bullets by learning how to shoot on a mosque walls
when he is riding a motorbic!!!).
Later at the same day.. US army patrols found 2 dead bodies in the same
P.S: I am talking about just one neighbourhood, imagen what happens
in other ones.. and you count the number of the dead bodies and
I'm just living in an irony country... where religion scientists.. who
assume that they are scientists of religion.. are leading the country to
a total mess...
Expect more news updates from Baghdad neigbourhoods... but unfortunely
