Tell Me a Secret: Ihath

Thursday, October 12, 2006


Ihath is a horrible Iraqi blogger -living in Canada- that I don't even like.

When i read what she writes i usually close the window thinking either "what the hell was she thinking when she wrote that" or "oh, i know why i never come here, i hate her".

Nevertheless, she is a fellow Iraqi blogger, her writting style is widely loved, and one of her dreams just became true, she published her first book. It's actually one of the dreams of most bloggers, not me though, I dream of chocolate cake most of the time.


In the book One Thousand and One Nights. Scheherazade has to tell stories in order to survive. She tells such interesting and compelling stories that King Schehrayar can’t help but let her live one more night and then another and then another. After a thousand and one nights, he gets attached and forgets his murderous desire. By salvaging her own life with stories, Scheherazade in turn liberates Schehrayar’s heart from its darkness. As war and terrorism rages, so grows the antagonism between the Middle East and the West. “Don’t Shoot! . . . I have another story to tell you” is the personal journey of an Iraqi woman who walks the tightrope between East and West. The book is a funny and often moving voyage of uncovering, discovering and discarding of identity. It is a book understanding the past, and telling new stories in order to embrace the future. Through these tales of transformation the book encourages the reader to grow attached and come to understand the Middle East’s many contradictions.

So, i thought that it wouldn't kill us -nice Iraqi bloggers- to congratulate her and wish her luck and advertise to her new book.

Did I mention that she is so mean that when i asked her for a free copy of her book since I am a poor Iraqi guy she said she would send it as soon as i send her free $20 bill?:)

You can buy the book by clicking the link above.

Ihath, congratiolations:)

Awwww Khalid, surely you are joking when you say you hate Ihath (or Elen as her book reveals;) She is a wonderful story teller with wonderful tales to tell.
How funny that after reading her blog, I looked to see if you'd updated recently and you're writing about her!:))

Come visit Portland, maybe Powell's bookstore will have a used copy of her book cheap;)

And I'll bake you a chocolate cake.
Or better yet, a chocolate torte...
..I think I may have to practice with some chocolate chip cookies this week...

Very gracious of you to promote her book:)

Funny man. Best Ihath book post yet...

but i think u have no reason to hate her that much. She can be real creative, maybe it's because she's anti-religion?

Hey Khalid, what day is your birthday this month? And will there be chocolate cake? I hope it's the best birthday ever!
...was it the 15th? Or is it later?
Remember my motto, until there is cake and candles, your birthday celebration is not over:)

It is very kind of you to mention her book. Speaking of fellow Iraqi bloggers--does anyone have word of Riverbend, who has not posted since the 5th of August? Many hope she is safe and well. (and of course we hope for your continued safety and wellness, and that of your family and friends too, Khalid.)

I agree, she can be a bloody selfish pain in the arse and I bet she spammed you asking for a promo. I nearly wrote one myself but had to stop otherwise I'd of written something bound to of hurted her tender Iraqi soul.

Congrats on being the only Iraqi blogger with enough generosity to promote the undeserving bourgeoisie wench.

Which reminds me. You're too innocent and sweet for my liking. You're probably the kind of person who socialises with zionist's. There's a rumour out there you even asked to marry one once. Not that it holds any weight, having proposed to soooo many over the years. Pray the day someone accepts - you won't know what to do with yourself.
