US soldiers murder another academic

Truth About Iraqis

April 4, 2006

​​​​The annihilation of Iraq's greatest assets, it's academics and intellectuals, continues at a maddening pace, thanks to the illegal US invasion and occupation.

جنود الإحتلال الأمريكي يغتالون البروفسور قيس حسام الدين جمعة بعد عبوره نقطة تفتيشهم أمام كلية الزراعة
.
Last Thursday, March 30, 2006, American occupation soldiers shot dead 72 years old Professor Qais Husameldeen Juma'a as he left the Agriculture College of the University of Baghdad and had just passed their check point.
He had returned from Australia to supervise a few PhD students at the College.

إنا لله وإنا إليه راجعون

Thanks to Abu Tamam for the above.

Also, please make sure to check out more info on the BRussells Tribunal, which keeps track of all the assassinations and murders of Iraq's academics:

A little known aspect of the tragedy engulfing Iraq is the systematic liquidation of the country's academics. Even according to conservative estimates, over 250 educators have been assassinated, and many hundreds more have disappeared. With thousands fleeing the country in fear for their lives, not only is Iraq undergoing a major brain drain, the secular middle class - which has refused to be co-opted by the US occupation - is being decimated, with far-reaching consequences for the future of Iraq.
Already on July 14, 2004, veteran correspondent Robert Fisk reported from Iraq that: "University staff suspect that there is a campaign to strip Iraq of its academics, to complete the destruction of Iraq's cultural identity which began when the American army entered Baghdad."

The wave of assassinations appears non-partisan and non-sectarian, targeting women as well as men, and is countrywide. It is indiscriminate of expertise: professors of geography, history and Arabic literature as well as science are among the dead. Not one individual has been apprehended in connection with these assassinations.

According to the United Nations University, some 84 per cent of Iraq's institutions of higher education have already been burnt, looted or destroyed. Iraq's educational system used to be among the best in the region; one of the country's most important assets was its well-educated people.

This situation is a mirror of the occupation as a whole: a catastrophe of staggering proportions unfolding in a climate of criminal disregard. As an occupying power, and under international humanitarian law, final responsibility for protecting Iraqi citizens, including academics, lies with the United States.

With this petition we want to break the silence.

1. We appeal to organisations which work to enforce or defend international humanitarian law to put these crimes on the agenda.

2. We request that an independent international investigation be launched immediately to probe these extrajudicial killings. This investigation should also examine the issue of responsibility to clearly identify who is accountable for this state of affairs. We appeal to the special rapporteur on summary executions at UNHCHR in Geneva.

This petition was launched by the BRussells Tribunal and is already endorsed by CEOSI (Spain), the Portuguese hearing of the WTI, Iraktribunal.de (Germany), the Swedish Antiwar committee, the IAC (USA), the International Association of Middle East Studies (IAMES), the German Middle East Studies Association (DAVO) and the European Association for Middle Eastern Studies (EURAMES), and several personalities, like Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Tony Benn, Eduardo Galeano, John Pilger and Michael Parenti. See the list of endorsers.

I have written in past months of the slow and systematic murder of Iraq's brightest academics and intellectuals - effectively, the core of Iraqi society able to rebuild Iraq to its former glories.

I have repeatedly asked "How many Iraqi scientists have been killed in the past few years? ... How many poets and artists have been killed? How many forward-thinking women?"

"... To ensure that Iraqi education never, ever be able to mass produce scientists who can so much as make ammonia in a lab. To ensure that no Iraqi innovators emerge, no Iraqi thinkers, poets, philosophers, economists."

This is the rub, ladies and gentlemen. To destroy Iraq for generations and years to come, first by sanctions, then by military invasion and the use of bought-and-paid-for-CIA-trained so-called Islamic terrorists, and then finally by ensuring a restrictive, oppressive, backward, turban-hugging order of perverse clerics rule for good.

Your tax dollars at work. Be proud.
