Bremer Cool as Temperatures Soar in Iraq

26-06-2003 04:49

Reporting from Baghdad, The Independent's Patrick Cockburn wrote that the situation became so unbearable last week that people in one decrepit neighborhood threatened to shoot Bassim Arman, manager of the al-Thawra substation. Arman said he told the hostile group that the station itself was not receiving power. He was not harmed, but had to close the substation after employees, fearing for their safety, refused to return to work.

Civil Administrator L. Paul Bremer contradicted complaints of failing electricity, stating that generally Baghdad received power 20 hours a day.

"It simply isn't true," Cockburn reported one incredulous Iraqi responding. "Everyone in Baghdad knows it."

"He and his staff don't really know what it is like, because if they go out at all, it is in air-conditioned cars," Kurdish politician Mahmoud Othman told Cockburn. "But I've walked the streets, and I know what it is like. They are ill-informed and ill-advised."

Knight Ridder correspondent, Tom Lasseter, noted that electricity is unevenly distributed, with some areas of the city receiving the stated 20 hours of electricity, while other have power for only two or three hours.

The Coalition Provisional Authority operates from the generator-backed Republican Palace compound in the center of Baghdad.

No to the M74 Northern Extension in Glasgow

25-06-2003 18:11

The Scottish Executive plans to build a 6-lane elevated motorway through the southern suburbs of Glasgow. The M74 Northern Extension, would cost about £375-500 million and would be the most expensive transport project in Scotland.
JAM74, a coalition of community, environmental and sustainable transport groups, believes this 1960s-style road planning will cause pollution, health problems, community breakdown and won't free up traffic or bring the jobs that are promised and calls for a halt to the road plans and independant research on alternative transport options.

Early! Islamic History Beyond Arabia

From Slavery to Leadership: Muslim Minorities in North America
Imam Khalid Griggs - Imam and National Community Leader, North Carolina
Malcolm X, Muhammad Ali, and Jameel Al-Ameen are perhaps a few names that cross our minds when we think of the evolution of Muslim identity and community in North America. However, what often escapes our
notice is the exemplary model of sacrifice, dedication, discipline, dignity, generosity, and cooperation exercised by innumerable common Muslims, beginning with the civil rights movement led by thousands of Muslim
African slaves and their descendents, the struggle of First Nations' indigenous Muslims, as well as the presence of millions of Arab and South Asian Muslims immigrants to North America.
