Kurdish Prisoner of Conscience

Sonic has pointed out the plight of Kurdish writer Dr Kamal Qadir, who has been jailed for defaming the Kurdish leader Masoud Barzani.

Amnesty are campaigning about this case, which is great. Because they have failed completely in their duty to campaign about similar repression in Europe, we have had to become active. However, we encourage everyone to support this Amnesty campaign.

I have covered this at some length in an article on my weblog entitled, An open letter to the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) from a friend in the U.S.

You may also be interested in the case of Mariwan Halabjaee, "the Salman Rushdie of Iraqi-Kurdistan."

Basically,my weblog, The Is-Ought Problem, primarily covers Iraqi-Kurdistan from the perspective of Western philosophy. I have a number of articles regarding Dr. Qadir, as well as the issues of "honor" killings and fatal fatwas in Iraqi-Kurdistan. The above is only the most recent.
