ラマダーンの贈り物

現在バグダードはラマダーン(断食月)の真最中。現地スタッフからのメールによると、今年のラマダーンは例年とはずいぶんと違うようだ。

「いたるところで攻撃などあり通りはがらがら。危なくて以前のように親戚の家など訪ね歩いたり、カフェで水タバコを楽しんだりすることすら出来ない。ラマダーン中はいつもより多く食料を必要とするのに、配給は3ヶ月前から滞ったままだし、市場では食物の価格は高騰している。それでもラマダーン、マブルーク(おめでとう)っていうのはもう習慣だからね。だから君にもラマダーン、マブルーク!」

こんな状況なので、当然子ども達もなかなか外に遊びに行けない。以前のブログでも紹介したが、盲学校の子ども達は毎日施設に缶詰で、きっと息苦しい毎日を送っていたことだろう。

さて、そこで先月アンマンでのミーティングを終え何とか帰国したスタッフから写真が届いた。

1
何もない殺風景な施設の庭に

2
なにやらけったいなモノが運び込まれていく・・・

3
なんだろうねえ???

4
これは・・・

5
プレイグラウンド(遊技場)じゃん!

6
滑り台はもちろん

7
ブランコもあるよ

8
シーソーだってあるね「僕にも乗らせてよう」

9
きゃー

10
お母さんも安心

「ちびっ子たちは取り合って遊んでいたよ。それはそれは美しい光景だった」byスタッフ

写真で見たらまたたまらなく会いたくなってきた。そういえばもう一年以上ここのちびっ子達と遊んでいないなあ・・・。

とにかく早速実現してくれて感謝!詳しくは16日に報告するのでどうぞよろしく。

さて、その前日15日はイラク新憲法草案の国民投票の日。スタッフの周りではこの草案に誰一人賛成していないものの、ボイコットした前回の国民議会選挙とは違って、今回は多くの人が投票に行って反対票を入れたいそうだ。イスラム党は新政府ができれば修正が可能だからと賛成を呼びかけているが、スンニ派の連合はボイコットを、そしてイスラム法学者協会は反対を呼びかけているとのこと。一ヶ月前は全てのスンニの組織が「投票に行って反対票を」と呼びかけていたのに、ここに来てころころと変わってきたそうで、もうこんなバカげたゲームには付き合っていられないと、皆どの組織のことも信用していないという。

いずれにしても前回の選挙同様事実上の戒厳令下での国民投票という茶番劇なのは間違いないし、結果がどうなろうとも安定に向かうとは残念ながら考えにくい。そしてこの憲法をめぐる混乱を見るにつけ、とても他国事とは思えなくなる。

YATCHさん、ご苦労様です。
先日は、お忙しい所、失礼致しました。

文面を拝見するに、とても嬉しそうですね。(笑)
読んでる私も、楽しくなります。

過去の記事を思い出して頂ければ、アメリカとイギリスは、当初からイラクを分断統治を考えていたように思います。

本当にイラクの人々やこの地域の幸せを考えるのなら、別の選択肢があったように思います。

結局は、イスラエルとパレスチナに見る縮図のように、此れまで繰り返していきた事と同じ事を、また拡大して繰り返そうとしているのかもしれません。

最終的な利害者であり権利者であるのが国民である事を、忘れるべきでは無いと思います。

「分断統治」これって欧米列強が植民地支配していたころと何ら変わっていないですね(=「分割して統治せよ」)。支配する側の利権確保という本音が見え見え。

Posted by: 恭子 | October 14, 2005 at 12:40 AM

久々に?明るい記事で、ほっとしました。
もっとこういう光景がイラクで普通になればいいのになと、思いました。

みなさんお返事遅れてすみません。

Nobady Knowsさん、

先日はこちらこそどうも。Web上でしか知らない人と初めて会うと不思議な感じがしますね。でもお会いできて嬉しかったです。

恭子さん、

全く、歴史は繰り返すと言うか、人類が歴史から学べることは人類が歴史から学ばないということそのものだと思います。

くらげさん、

私も嬉しくて嬉しくてすぐ感謝の返事をだしたら、その言葉がまた嬉しくてたまらなかったそうで、みんなが喜ぶことなら何でもするよってはりきってましたよ。ほんとに、イマジンじゃあないですが、みんながそんな気持ちになれればけっこう簡単なことのはずなんですけどね。

I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Kudos!

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone! www.blogesaurus.com quest bars
