Re:The killing of doctors in Iraq must stop

It is very clear that this killing is to delay Iraq from being strong
and to keep it weak and in chaos and this should clarify that who will be
happy from keeping Iraq weak.
For Waseem Jerjes who said that it may be ethnic cleansing, I want to tell
you that it is not, as they killing all the smart people from Professors,
researchers and scientists from all ethnic and religion groups for that
reason it is targeting the brains.
My colleague Dr.Zaid Al-Hilli was PhD in cancer research and he was very
peaceful man with nothing to do with any political conflicts and everyone
who know him was shocked, his only crime that he was smart and dedicated
him self for science and for his country in cancer research.
The strange thing is that this terrible crimes are going without putting
them under spotlight and there is no enough attention from media around
the world and even inside Iraq about this important and dangerous issue.
