"with not a single mention of an occupation in its 10 points of recommendations"
.. I received an e-mail from Dr Abbas. He was very angry that you refused to put the “Appeal of the Tribute Day” organized in London on the new website.
In my humble opinion, I think it is wrong to classify Iraqi academics as either with us or against us.
Moreover, you will strengthen your hand if you appear to be a bridge between all views.
With all due respects, an appeal on the present plight of Iraqi academics with not a single mention of an occupation in its 10 points of recommendations is not, in my humble opinion, worthy of academics. Hence, I would not post it myself.
On the other hand, I have invited all members on the List to post, under their own names, whatever they like, to their credit or discredit.
There is no bridge to those who acquiesce to occupation.
All the best
