I am so glad to hear you are out and safe! I thought about you a lot when I heard you were first missing. I was so worried about you, as were many people. So glad to know that you are safe now. God Bless you and your family.

I am so glad you and your mom are back home in Amman. I was very very worried. Rest up and relax for awhile, then back to work defeating the lies and liars.

It's great news to know you're safe and out of the country. As a couple of commenters have noted, a lot of people have been watching and petitioning. You have a great family.

We look forward to hearing from you, once you've been able to rest and recover. Cheers.

Please keep safe, Khalid. We were all very worried about you and also very sorry for Faiza who must have been suffering greatly during your ordeal. It is so sad that you have to leave Iraq to be safe. Love to you and all your family.

Though not knowing you and your wonderful family directly, I feel like I do and and was overjoyed when CSH left a message at Free Iraq that you are FREE! Having signed the petition for your freedom I am so proud to note the company I keep with people around the world. The scourge of what has been visited upon Iraq is hideous. The people of Iraq (and elsewhere) are wonderful. That is something to celebrate. May we live to see freedom come to your land and all its people. Peace to you and yours.

congratulations on your safe return. forgive me if i do not cut/paste the entire bible. just like if you were killed i would not blame God, I do not attribute your safekeeping to him either. the only thing that can protect us from each another is to stop playing the game of vengeance. if my own christian mother is killed by al Qaeda the most efficient thing for me to do for mankind is exactly nothing. too bad neither bush, nor muslims, nor anyone i know for that matter, has been selfless enough to do ever this. gee, i guess that is why the story of jesus is so popular. people think it is "cute" to make up some perfect guy who does everything we humans are supposed to do, then proceed to do EXACTLY THE OPPOSITE! ah humans, we're so rediculously stupid, aren't we? anyway, i digress! :) i'm glad you are alive.

I was so pleased to log on the other day and learn that you had been released! I'm another one of those people you don't know, but you've been much in my thoughts these last two weeks. I learned of your disappearance on Riverbend's blog. (A portion of her blog was printed in a magazine here in the U.S., and I've been checking in with it periodically since learning about it.) Now I am reading the blogs of you and your family members as well. (I think your mom is amazing!) I am thankful to you and all the bloggers for your words. You make the world a smaller place, and you inspire me to work harder against injustices. I pray for the day when your country is returned to you.

this is to tall daiv.
if i were you i would read more about the new Iraq, obviously you're Iraq, but it's obvious too that you've been a way for a while.
so i would suggest that you contact your relatives or whomever you have in Iraq and ask them what are the differences between saddam and the americans meanwhile.
and jsut a question; if you're so proud of the new Iraq? are yuo plannig to go there at least for a visit?
this is Waleed Rabiaa, and jsut for the record i left Iraq 9 months ago, i was born rasied over there.

Just as a matter of curiosity, did the real Mukhabarat(spelling?) allow their detainees to "phone home"?

Also, after reading the absolute drivel that Faiza wrote about her visit to the U.S., how is anyone with half a brain supposed to believe what she has to say about Iraq?

One question which constantly comes

else from your family) was lured
back to Iraq through this breakin?

For Dave, while certain things are relative, if you TRULY believe in a democratic society run according to prinicples of free speech, etc., it really doesn't matter if you are in the "new" Iraq or the "old" Iraq, this sort of thing is not supposed to happen and should not be tolerated. And btw, how neo-colonialist of you to imply that one should be grateful that human rights get abused just a little in the new Iraq and should Iraqis not be properly grateful, things could easily go back to what they were.

A little course in colonial history WOULD NOT kill you , bud.

Is there someone reading this thread who is pro "New Iraq" and living in or recently departed from Iraq? This in not a rhetorical question. In the interest of full disclosure I will reveal that I am a politically liberal American, but I am seeking understanding and a more balanced view of the situation in Iraq. What I seem to be encountering most (here and elsewhere) is anti-occupation Iraqis vs. Americans and other foreigners telling Iraqis what is best for them. I'm not discounting the right of each of these groups to speak up (though I dislike it when the debate slips for discussion into unhelpful name-calling), but I would love to hear from someone who represents what seems to me to be the missing part. Have I missed it (perhaps because of the anonymity of many posters)? Is there someone in/from Iraq who would like refute Faiza's (Kahlid's mother's) portrait of life in current Iraq (with specific counterpoints, not vague mud slinging, please). Thank you.

Vague mud slinging? Perhaps. More like impatience with one woman's politcally skewed, half-baked assessment of the U.S.

There are other Iraqi blogs besides the Jarrars who give a little fairer analysis of what is going on in Iraq. Is it perfect? Hardly. But Faiza's mockery and innuendo do not seem like an unbiased account. Try

im sure that after everything khalid's been through, the last thing he wants to do right now is relive it straight away so that we can know what happened... let him rest and recover and be with his family, let him enjoy his freedom that so many others are denied, and not think about his ordeal so soon... we know he is safe and he knows that he is loved and that is enough for now


and whoever is so obviously trying (and failing) to imitate, you are usually beneath my notice but... really, what a pathetic, small, person you must be and what a meaningless life you must lead if this is what you do with your spare time. a waste of life.
