“They rejected my asylum application because they believed I could move to another area in Iraq. They don’t understand that there is nowhere I could move to in Iraq where I would be safe.”
~ Ahmed, an Iraqi refugee in London, UK ~
Iraq. The cradle of civilisation and the birthplace of the invention of writing, the wheel, the first accurate calendar, the 60 seconds 60 minute hour, and so much more. Humanity is indebted to Iraqi civilisation, whose inventions changed the world. But sadly, Iraq has been raped, pillaged, invaded, and destroyed by regional and foreign powers and is referred to as a failed state.
