Dear Conscientious Human Beings: Assalamo Alaikum (peace be upon you)

A memorial service will be held in Memory of Rachel Corrie & Thomas Hundrall

They demonstrated utmost human courage by trying to protect the most basic human rights of the human beings i.e. to live and have a home. They displayed utmost human courage against equally cold-blooded, cruel and horrifying violence fully sponsored and backed by the Global Terrorists. Their great sacrifices were completely suppressed and covered up by the Big Tycoons of Media Terrorism who are now using Medical Terrorism through creating fear about SARS just like anthrax some while ago. Let us pay our tribute to these Great American Girl and British Boy who stood against the Zionists and Zionist Slaves i.e. the so-called rulers of the United States of America and the United Kingdom.

Timings: 9:00. p.m.

Day & Date: Saturday 3rd May, 2003

Venue: Islamabad Institute of Pathology & Labs (IIP Labs),
Asif Plaza (3rd Plaza from Khyber Plaza) Fazal-e-Haque
Road, Blue Area, Islamabad. Pakistan Ph: 2875585

Sincerely yours,

Anwar Ul Haque
(Professor (Dr.) Anwar Ul Haque)

When they arrived, the Americans brought irritants petty and large. Their speeding patrols and convoys make thoroughfares dangerous. Their checkpoints delay and invade privacy. Iraqis claim GIs they encounter mock their clothing and customs.

The greatest sensitivity involves women. Iraqis resent soldiers looking at their women, almost all of whom are draped while in public in head-to-toe abayas, and believe they're exchanging crude remarks as women pass by.

The most unusual complaint is that GIs' binoculars, goggles, or night-vision scopes are being used to look into houses, or even through curtains or clothing.

American officers contend only a minority of Fallujah's people feel this animosity toward their troops, and Baathists are fomenting clashes. But reporters found a universal desire for the Americans to at least withdraw to the city's outskirts.

In one concession, U.S. commanders gave up the embattled school. Its headmaster, returning, was disgusted to find desks smashed, supply rooms ransacked, textbooks about the Quran, Islam's holy book, dumped on the floor, and worse: A pornographic drawing had been chalked on an office door.
