Nimrud's Lamentations,

Nimrud's Wrath


By Layla Anwar, An arab woman blues


Part One

March 23, 2010

Who and What were you 6'000 years ago ? You and your nations were NOTHING, you were not even in existence... you were nothing, had nothing...not that it changed much since...

I love History, specially ancient History...History is a bit like God...it enlightens and teaches the ignorant, humbles the arrogant...but in your case, you are genetically predisposed for arrogance...and what an end yours will be !

Forget about you, you ignorant barbaric hoards, you uncultured, uncivilized, backward people...you covetous, jealous, envious, Godless people...

I hear Nimrud lamenting...you probably don't even know who Nimrud is...I can already see you all rushing to google...ah, what disgust I feel every time I see one of you around, talking with airs of knowledge, when you and I, know deep down what a failure of a human being you are ...

I said it once, you can curse the Iraqis, destroy them, rob them as much as you want, we are nothing but mud and dust, people come and go...so will you -- because you are made of the same stuff as us...you will end too one day...Insha'Allah soon...but you lay a finger on Iraq -- the concept, you lay a finger on Mesopotamia from which the Great Iraq is born and I will shred you to pieces...and am up to my promise...

You see, ignorant assholes that you are, History cannot lie...and I know how much you covet what you don't have...I am reserving a post for just that...I have studied you for so long...I know you inside out...and I know how you love to GRAB...you grab anything...you are a nation of grabbers with NO dignity...you love free meals, free rides, free anything...in fact you are nothing but a bunch of thieves, bandits...

You stole us...you stole us from everything we owned...from our daily bread all the way to our history...to our memory, to our monuments, to our artifacts, to our souls...

You stole us because you knew and you know what inferior beings you are...what empty, shallow, rootless, ignorant people you are...you stole us because you are hungry...not hungry for food, but hungry to appropriate anything that is better, BETTER than you...because deep down you know what a bunch of worthless pieces of crap you collectively are...I told you once - you are a nation of BASTARDS...you might know who your father and mother are, but you are still BASTARDS because you lost your ORIGINS...you have NONE, so like your cousins the Jews, you grab...trying to create some...

Stop deluding yourselves...you can steal all you want from our history...you are still a bunch bastards...you can hide what you stole in your museums and in your homes, but still you are nothing but bastards with no origins...those who created 6'000 years ago, can still re-create today...while you, you will keep on grabbing and what a lowly, debased sight it is...


Part two
March 23, 2010



I've been holding on to the pictures...for over 5 years now...I hid them, refused to share them with anyone...I would take them out every once in a while, study them, watch them closely, read the faces...and stack them away again...and for over 5 years, the wrenching pain, the fire I feel in my gut has not subsided not one iota...on the contrary, it keeps growing...a smoldering braise...and nothing will ever extinguish it...

There comes a point in anyone's life when one has to put an X - I have reached that point....I have put an X on you and everything you represent. EVERYTHING you represent...

The crimes have been too many - uncountable, the destruction - indescribable in words, the lies too intricate to unravel, and the pillaging, plundering, looting beyond anyone's imagination...

A nation of looters, thieves, bandits, rapists, torturers, liars, profiteers, exploiters, criminals, killers -- a nation of gluttony, concupiscence, envy, covetousness and greed...

Behind that politically correct public facade of yours, behind that veneer and the mask, behind lurks the biggest lie...behind it lurks the worshipers of dollars and gold...behind it lies miserliness, hoarding, avarice -- the mind of a cheap calculator, the mind of a miser accountant, the mind of a ravenous grabber...always avidly vying what others have, even if you are satiated to the point of exploding...but you are NEVER satiated. There are holes in your body and in your soul, and they will never be full...however much you grab, however much you loot, however much you steal, however much...however much you envy, covet and appropriate others, you will never be full...you will never be satisfied...and I now understand that this is how you've been cursed. Yes this is your Curse.


Part Three
March 23, 2010

I admit, I am having difficulty writing about the looting of Iraq's heritage...I am having difficulty writing about your pillaging our memory, our origins, our history...

I choke with sadness, I suffocate with rage, and with every word that I type, my hatred, my loathing for anything American keeps growing...unconditionally so...

I don't even know where to start...should I start with your looting MILLIONS of DOLLARS in Cash and transporting them in boxes to New York "to be counted"...

This is I saw with my own two eyes - the first loot I am a witness of was end 2003 - beginning 2004 and consisted of several wooden boxes where about 650 Million dollars were stashed by the previous regime - this money was destined for the food rationing of thousands of families that you starved with your embargo during 13 years...The Americans thieves, sons of whores put the boxes in a truck and flew them to New York....we never heard anything about this first loot since...

Since, under Bremer and under every subsequent motherfucker dog American and Iraqi puppet, BILLIONS of Dollars have been looted...under Bremer alone, 20 Billion dollars went missing. 20 Billion Dollars of IRAQI money. God how much I hate you people !

As if that was not enough, your filthy soldiers/rapists, would steal our money and jewelery when ransacking our homes...during their daily raids...

Not only, the homes of President Saddam Hussein and all of his family, members of the previous government, their houses were all looted by the Americans. Their belongings resurfaced everywhere, from the United States of Assholes to South Africa...the palaces which are the property of Iraq were looted too...and the Americans took part in the looting...

You love Cash ya awlad al kalb - I see how your eyes glitter at the sight of Cash...I have seen you drool and foam at the mouth at the sight of money...oh no, not just your soldiers, not just your representatives, but your "law abiding" "peace loving" citizens, salivating like dogs at the sight of money...

So you looted our Cash first...then you looted our artifacts, our antiquities, our heritage then you looted our oil...and now you ask us to contribute for our refugees !

I need a break...I am shaking with rage now...


Part Four

March 24, 2010

Took a break to calm myself down a little...I have to go through this, even though I have been avoiding it for the past 5 years...am not expecting that it will change anything, nor that it will make a difference, maybe am just hoping I will be released...

I will not go through every artifact that was looted...google "Iraqi antiquities" and you will have the word loot pop up with every single link...

But what I can tell you as FACT, is that the first batch of smuggled antiquities took place in the early 90's by none other than members of the WMD inspection team first led by R.Butler the CIA spy...then it continued...since these bastards had access to every single site on Iraqi soil, and they could roam and wander as they pleased...their team members were the first looters...

In 2003, the looting of Iraqi antiquities took on a more organized form, thousands of precious, irreplaceable ancient relics disappeared...some dating to the FIRST known civilization to mankind - The Sumerian one.

Damn it's coming on again...another short break.

Resuming...

I have known that Iraqi museum in Baghdad - I used to spend hours in it, studying every piece, admiring them, imagining how they came up with such genius, who inspired them, where did they get the coloring material from, how did they come up with the designs, what was their message, what were they trying to tell me about art, creativity, genius, inventions, their perception of the world, the universe, the cosmos -- and as I asked myself these questions, I was also walking in their footsteps...seeing through their eyes, and through every single piece, I felt we were related, like in a blood line...I felt they were telling me about continuity, about lineage, about origins...mine...ours...they had set the foundation for our collective memory...and they were telling me...look...you can trace back yours millenniums back to us...

So it was with the archeological sites, I would wander there, in their grounds...infusing myself with their signs, with their message, with their spirit...

And at times when I felt lost, I had a few books on antiquities, I would open them and stare at the pictures, over and over again, touching them like talismans...this is how attached I was, am, to our historical heritage...

I don't even know how to explain it in words...am searching for the right sentences to illustrate that bond...that attachment and I can't find them...it's visceral, it's archaic, it's magical...

I am not expecting Iraqis from a younger generation to understand any of it, they are too taken with Michael Jackson, Rap, and Celine Dion or whatever crap they listen to, they are too engrossed with KFC, McDonalds, and mimicking like chimpanzees the Americans of their generation...they are as hopeless as the latter...as stupid and as empty and as ignorant...these Iraqis are crass, they are garbage, like the Americans they imitate...I have no hope and no faith in them...it is not them who will keep the memory alive...and I am not sure they are any left to keep the memory alive...

I need another break...this is too painful for me...


Part Five

May 25, 2010


Finally gathered the courage to finish this post.
This subject literally tears me apart...I needed some distance, time and space distance...a cooling down period...hard to cool down when I know, that all previous historic invasions did not manage to destroy Iraq's past but this filthy anglo-american, iranian one did....

Never in the history of Mesopotamia, has Iraq suffered as much damage to its civilization and culture as it has today...not even the Moguls known for their barbarity, managed to erase so much...

It pains me a great deal...and the pain is real, very real...it is not some nostalgia... it is a raw wound covered with a red, hot rage...I will never forgive americans, brits and iranians for what they've done to Iraq. NEVER !
And I will never forgive how they destroyed our history, our archeological sites, our monuments, our archives, our libraries...I will never forgive how they smuggled, traded in our artifacts, pieces of beauty, of grandeur, of brilliance, of genius, that existed when they were still farts in the black hole of the cosmos...

And while other Arab countries are trying to secure their own ancient stories, like Egypt for instance, ours is being sold in bits and pieces at auctions in the four corners of the world...

I need not go through all the details...a simple research typing -- Iraqi artifacts, and you will get page after page of the items looted and sold to the highest bidder...from an ancient gold Sumerian pair of earrings to a statue from the Akkadian dynasty...to Babylonian manuscripts stolen to that despicable entity called the Jewish state of Israel where a special museum in Tel Aviv was erected to receive Iraq's history...

But not only the Jews plundered Mesopotamia, the Iranians did as well...many of our ancient history is smuggled to Iran, and sold for peanuts...or kept in their museums under the banner of Persian empire...(in your dreams ya dogs, in your dreams)...but not only those hoards of flea ridden scum -- the brits, the americans had a share in the plundering...

Iraq, the cradle of civilization - where all met. Centuries later, they met again in 2003...to rip her apart...and erase her story, plucking her from her roots...

I need not go into details, research yourself...I need not re-open bleeding wounds, do some reading yourself...and you will see report after report attesting that-- the damage done to Iraq's history is unrepairable...

I remember in 2003, when the museum was looted in an ORGANIZED fashion, and when the despicable filth called americans helped dynamite the bolted door of the museum....(and frankly I have NEVER HATED "a people" LIKE I HATE the americans and everything they represent - it's truly unprecedented), so when I heard the news and saw the director of the museum hitting her head, screaming at the top of her lungs --"the vase, the bowl, the statue...they're gone, they're gone ! " she was crying tears of blood...I shouted like a stabbed animal -- NO ! NO ! Not our History !

I forgot the bombs, the dead, the collapsed buildings....I turned back, back in time...8'000 years back....(and it's not 7'000 years of civilization, it's 8'000 years as the latest excavation of a fortress in the north of Iraq shows). 8'000 years ago while you were in caves, picking lice from each others head, we were building fortresses...which means we had knowledge of geometry, construction, irrigation, etc...always remember that.

And that you will never be able to defeat, nor steal, nor loot, nor plunder, nor pillage...not even kill...ingenuity is in our genes...and the one who builds a fortress 8'000 years ago, can and will DEFEAT you...and you are DEFEATED on all fronts...but most importantly you are DEFEATED morally because you have been exposed to the Light....and how sweet is your defeat. And all is downhill from now on...trust me when I say so....trust me.

You will never ever get away with it...not in 100 years...but then am sure you will not be around no more...not as a country, nor as a people...you will be replaced...so easily...so easily...

And if Mesopotamia survived 8'000 years, it is because she had something to offer, she had something to be proud of....you will not survive the 100 years because you offered nothing of true substance to the world...nothing at all. Stop deluding yourselves with your accomplishments. You will be replaced and it will be so easy to replace you....history is full of examples...

Now for the most painful part of the story...the heart wrenching, gut wrenching part of the story in full colors...

In 2003, the rabid verminous american dogs and their cohorts went looking for Nimrud's Treasures...rumors spread fast that the honorable, noble, courageous, brave, martyr Saddam Hussein and his family stole the treasures...

None of that was true. What the honorable, noble, courageous, brave Saddam Hussein and his aides did was hide the Mesopotamian treasure in Baghdad's central bank basement-- fearing that it will be looted...

Article after article in your garbage, hypocritical western press alleged that Nimrud's treasures were stolen by the Hussein "clan".

It literally took an army of men, mostly americans and their iraqi puppet dogs, to dynamite the vaulted door of the central bank...and the treasure was found...

I received these pictures some years ago...I held on to them...I was possessive...like a Mesopotamian Goddess... I did not want any of you garbage see the treasures. I did not want you to see the designs drawn 7'000 years ago, did not want you to enjoy the shapes, the forms, the colors...I did not want any of your fucked up, faggot, "creators" copy and imitate anything...and sell it as "Babylonian history" and make a profit out it and out of our corpses, blood and painful exile... I was possessive like a wild tigress protecting, safeguarding, the little we have left...the little I had left...a series of photos...

But the time has come...the time is now ripe...because, besides the designs, the shapes, the colors and the forms, there are faces in the pictures...

I study faces and I have an eye for details...for expressions, for the slightest twitch caught in a snapshot...I look at everything...everything...the face, the eyes, the mouth, the lips, the hands... I look because in the minute detail lies a story...and I can write books about this one...

This story of envy, of jealousy, of greed and of hatred...

These are SOME of the pictures I have been hiding for so long...I will NOT publish all of them...I am still a possessive wild tigress when it comes to Iraq and her history...I will show you just enough of your own ugliness...your ugly faces, your grabbing hands, your frothing greed stuck in the corner of your lips -- an ugliness contrasted with ---the luminous, with the beautiful, with the brilliance, with the genius of Iraq - of Uruk...






As I said, these are only a SAMPLE of the pictures I have...Enough for you. Did I just you see salivate like those hideous faces in the photos ?! Oh yes, I sure did...

Do you know where the Treasures of Nimrud are today ? They are in Washington D.C - LOOTED.

My Hatred for you is Infinite...like God's Infinity... beyond Uruk, beyond Sumer...

Who am I ? The eternal Question . Have not figured it out fully yet . All you need to know about me is that I am a Middle Easterner, an Arab Woman - into my 40's and old enough to know better. I have no homeland per se. I live in Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine, Jordan, Syria and Egypt simultaneously...All the rest is icing on the cake.
