In former regime time schools were very corrupted and now too, obviously there was teaching but under Ba’athists (Saddam’s men) basics. Basic 1 the headmaster has to be a member in Ba’ath party to control on the type of education that Ba’ath party wants in that region. Basic 2 awe kids from 1st to 4th class to make kids prepared to accept as true the speech in 5th class in organized way. Basic 3 is use basic 3 which is teach pupils every thing bad against and hate west, western people, Israel and fill their minds with Ba’ath thoughts.
All these happen with out make people feel and fill their minds gradually, first class kids are 6 years old usually Arabic lesson teachers take this mission because it is main lesson until 4th class, at fifth class national lesson teachers take the mission and help weak kids in other lessons who shows more keyed up with mission, 6th class almost looks like 5th one, then comes secondary stage from 1st to 3rd (national, geography and history lessons teachers take the mission) if the student don’t get keyed up with them they will fight with his education then student gets failed and take him to army, you will see many smart students failed in third class in secondary stage. For example; I was in 3rd secondary class history teacher was doing this mission but I was only the one in the school aware about this, it is almost 3 months school started and nobody taught us about history all they do history teacher comes and fill our minds with Ba’ath party thoughts and urges us to hate west, western people and Israel with all bad words, I stood up and told him “sir, do you know what’s going in history lesson and we didn’t have any exams until now?” he told me “what are saying? I give you high scores all you have to listen to me,” I told him “do you want the truth I am not interested with all what are you doing and I know what you are doing all these are empty words and untruthful” he told me you will see somewhat at end of this year, at end of year I got failed they gave me 37% in mathematics when mathematics teacher saw my score he surprised told what’s going on you can get easily 90% with out doubt every body knows that, I told him I agree with this because I stood against them and I explained what happened between me and history teacher and how he threatened me and I got what he promised so I have to repeat this year again. Mathematics teacher told please don’t face them they will hurt you are good student and continue studying forget this you are too young, I didn’t take his advise here started my intellectual war against Ba’ath party and who is supporting their evil ideas, just me alone nobody supports me.
Next year headmaster sat with me he told me you have one more year if get failed like last year you will go to army or you obey us and you get succeeded as other students and I have many complaints about teaching students against us, I told him “sir lets make deal I will stop teaching students and you don’t play with my scores but I won’t attend history lesson” he said ok, I succeeded that year.
This was one of thousands examples how they were doing in their missions and this continue until you get graduated from university.
Now still some teachers are doing this but fewer than past and secretly. I ask the new Iraqi government to take care about this to save our kids from crimes, terrorism and evil seeds before rain comes on it.

Basma's fate

Hassan is greengrocer has small opened store at market father of four kids, Falah is boy and girls are Hassina is 8 years old, Raja’a is 7 years old and Basma is 5 years old.
Falah is 10 years old everyday morning goes with his father to help him to sell vegetables, Falah’s work is just yelling at store for buyers explaining the price of the vegetables and repeat yelling until they are done, yelling at vegetable market is very important makes people known with prices and the price of vegetables in the morning very high and goes down gradually to dark at dark prices become very cheap because they can’t sell it in good price, Falah yells all day and helps his father to take what remained of unsold vegetables to home as food. Falah asks his father some money to buy some chocolate for him and for his sisters.
When they come home Falah’s mother already prepared hot food, Falah comes home back tired and hungry can’t wait to take of his shoes off he goes directly to eat but Basma catches him and tells him “ my chocolate” she gets big share more than her sisters, after Falah is done eating he gets sleeping in eating place his mother carries him to the bed and takes his shoes off.
Hassina and Raja’a go to school when they come back home they help their mother sweeping, do homework and play with Basma.
Basma feels lonely every morning after everybody go she has cat and plays with cat.
One-day terrorists came to Hassan’s house night and they knocked door, Hassan opened the door and saw two men he didn’t know any one of them they said we are here in important mission we want to talk to you, Hassan said ok come in when they entered one of them said don’t ask who we are and we want to use your house to fight coalition forces or use it to hide hostages.
When Hassan heard what they are saying he leave my house and don’t come again never. Two terrorists told him if you don’t agree you will blame yourself what happens for your family then they left.
Hasan didn’t tell his wife what happened last night when he went to work he founded his store is destroyed by terrorists………. Immediately: he went back home to see his family his family was good he told his wife what happened last night and morning, Hassan said if they come tonight we will leave we have no choice, Hassan stayed at home that day but terrorists launched mortars on his house afternoon, just one mortar got his house they didn’t get injured and some small damages in house. Neighbors came to his house Hassan explained everything happened between him and terrorists, neighbors told him to leave his house but Hassan that is it the threat and it is over they destroyed my store and mortars on my house.

Hassan thought everything is over and they won’t come back again but at night terrorists came and killed Hassan and his wife on bed by shooting and terrorists killed Falah, Hassina and Raja’a stabbing and they cut Basma’a’s head and they threw it in front of house.

For two white puppies

Qasim and Salem are friends they are living in same neighborhood, Qasim is 10 years old and Salem 9 years old both of them have family. They wake up early morning to play with dogs secretly because their families don’t allow playing with dogs, every kid in the neighborhood has dog and take care with dogs out of their houses in abandoned houses because their families don’t allow to bring dogs in house but about Qasim and Salem, their families don’t allow to touch dogs at all, every dog in the neighborhood has name and belongs to kid nobody can take somebody’s dog because many fights occur because of dogs or puppies among kids.
Every day Qasim and Salem wait longingly early morning to go play with some ownerless dogs, “why don’t we own and take care with them secretly in the neighborhood?” Salem said to Qasim,
“But how my father promised won’t allow me to play with you if he hears we are playing with dogs” Qasim responded to Salem, “ I have an idea we get dogs and put with Amirs’ dogs if somebody asks us we are going to tell belong to Amir” Salem said to Qasim.
Qasim agreed with Salem’s idea and both of them went directly to see Amir; Amir is kid 9 years old lives in the neighborhood has dogs too.
Amir agreed to put dogs or puppies if they bring with his dogs and keep it secret and share his dog’s food too. Qasim and Salem became very very happy, Qasim was thinking how to get good dogs his mother and father noticed the happiness on his face they said he won’t be happy if he didn’t play with dogs today “ Qasim, Qasim, I am sure you played with dogs” father said to Qasim, but Qasim deposed he didn’t touch dogs, “if you play with dogs you will be sick” father said to Qasim, Qasim said I know but he hid playing with dogs.
Qasim and Salem every night pray for God and ask God to their families allow them to own dogs, next morning Salem and Qasim were thinking to how choose good dogs, “Qasim, I think if we get two white puppies one for you and one for me” Salem said to Qasim, Qasim said yes two white puppies but how we get? Salem said I already planned for this do you know next neighborhood they have good white puppies born 20 days ago we will go steal two when sun sets, Qasim said good idea we will wait till that.
Both of them knew the kids in the next neighborhood are bad if get caught they will be tortured by kids in next neighborhood but they didn’t care about this.
Sun started to set Qasim and Salem went to the next neighborhood walking and hiding until arrived there, they saw kids gathered in front of dogs house and they are intending to go home to have dinner, Qasim and Salem remained watching them until every body leaves but kids left one of them to guard until they come back Qasim said what is that, Salem said he will go home too, suddenly the guarding kid left dogs toward his home Salem said “Yalla” to Qasim but Qasim said wait until kid goes in home, Salem said you stay here watch me if any one comes yell to me but Qasim refused to stay watching both of them went to get puppies but the guarding kid just went to drink water when he came back saw two kids and dogs are howling he yelled to his friends “ dogs are in danger dogs are in danger” Qasim and Salem saw kids are coming from every they look like ants too many, Qasim said hurry up and get puppy Qasim got one white puppy and Salem too and started to run away but kids chased them and caught Salem and Qasim ran with puppy and put it with Amir's dogs and came to wait Salem but he didn’t know Salem is caught, two hours later and Salem didn’t show up Qasim can’t go in home and can’t go back to the next neighborhood.
Salem’s mother saw Qasim is sitting alone and said it is abnormal you are alone where is Salem? Qasim said I don’t know, she said you know but hiding some thing she went to see Qasim’s mother, Qasim’s mother said if you don’t tell us where is Salem I will punish you.
Qasim said we went to steal dogs from next neighborhood and I think kids caught him; Salem’s mother hurried up and took her husband to look for Salem in the next neighborhood, they saw Salem is tightened on wood post by kids and kids are torturing him to confess where is the other puppy and who is the other kid and slopped kerosene on him to burn him after they get other puppy.
Salem’s family yelled to kids and stopped them to burn him and took him to hospital, Salem became good but not allowed him to play with Qasim.
Qasim took that puppy back and got punishment by his family two months stay home and can’t play with Salem.
After 6 months every thing became normal Qasim and Salem play together and told other kids how they went to steal dogs from next neighborhood.

Last year their mother was pregnant every body were happy in family expecting new baby but she died with her baby because terrorists blow up car in the city close to their house it was heavy and big explosion so she got effected from that explosion both of mother and baby died, it was really sad because their poor father can’t take care with remained kids because he can’t move his legs are paralysis.

Although of his paralysis every thing was getting normal he never cared about him self after he had kids with his wheel chair was working, he has wooden bench in the market sells and fixes lighters.
Muhammad knew that terrorism became most dangerous from any time so he started to talk against terrorists and condemns their entire actions, terrorists warned him to stop talking against them and Muhammad didn’t care about threats continued teaching people truth about them.

One day Ahmed and Hamdia were going to buy candy when they tried to cross road 2 young terrorists came and threw hand grenade on them and ran away, Ahmed and Hamdia got wounded; Ahmed lost single leg and Hamdia has many burned parts on her body specially in her face.
But Muhammad didn’t stop talking against terrorism after that he went to mosque and talked against them, the Imam of the mosque called terrorists by phone and asked terrorists to kill him when Muhammad left mosque terrorists killed him in front of the mosque.
