From Shahd, the Iraqi child to the American President
In the name of God,
To our great friend, President Mr. Bush, from an Iraqi child. I saw the light for the first time in my life on the night of April 9th 2003. At first I send my regards to our great friends the U.S. people. By God’s justice, he chose a man who believed in his God to stand with the poor weak people all over the world to help them survive the evil hands who are devils and rescue them from the suffering that they lived all these long years. God chose your brave President George Bush because he has strong conviction and to accomplish this impossible mission and your President accepted this job and persisted to on go to do this difficult mission to help the Iraqi people survive the evil souls. There were a lot who stood against his help for the Iraqis but he didn’t care about the bad people who refused his human work. It’s a present from God, he gave to us by this man, so that is why we have a new name for your brave President, we call him Abu Kerar, which means he stood against the evil and destroyed it. God bless him and bless you all because you stood and were so patient to do this job that God gave or ordered you to do. Help us survive and we appreciate all that you have done for us. We beg your pardon if we tell you that we are watching the elections and we are very interested in them now because we feel that the results of the elections are our case as well as the United States people, and be sure that twenty million Iraqis are pledging for President Bush for the election’s sake. All that he has done for us and the heroic job and God bless his job, for history will speak of what he has done in the golden pages of this country. For all the United States people we are the Iraqi children who are praying to God to keep you in peace and keep you from evil and wish for you long and happy life.
By God’s will that we have to chance to visit our second country, America, I am going to bring a big sign saying our thanks and appreciation to all of your people. Our respected President George Bush, the children of Iraq and all Iraqis are calling for freedom and we are so thirsty for it, and we are counting the minutes and days to meet and talk to you. Mr. President, it is our pleasure for you to be between Iraq and visit us every day so we open for you our hearts and doors so you see the sad stories that lived inside since a long time ago, which none of the human beings will accept and we don’t want anyone to see what is inside of us, just you. That’s why we are so worried about the results of the elections. We ask God to help you in your job because it is good for the human race. Mr. President, most of the Iraqis have a big respect and appreciate your noble help by helping us survive the evil and the black cloud which had no mercy at all. He (Saddam) is a criminal of the first class. He was a monster, and worse than a monster. He was so cruel to us. Mr. President, what you did for us is not something normal because it is the kind of good help that we never saw or heard about for a long time. Because of you, the darkness is gone and the sun raised again. Everything was so clear, especially the size of the suffering that happened to us from a few people, their only job to kill us. We are in touch with your brave soldiers, but with care. We found out that they have very nice white souls and there is a lot of things in their souls, for they feel responsibility and their hearts are full of love, but the bad men and unappreciative people don’t like it that we live free and they messed with everything with a very ugly and shameful way. Just like with the old dead regime. They did a lot of things that God said not to do and we were without any personality and without any feelings of belonging to our country until it became that they started to kill us one by one. Every criminal job that these men did was killing the Iraqi people every minute, and they will never change our trust in you, Mr. President. Because of you we crossed to the other side of the river where there is civilization and contact with the outside world and cooperation with other people in a positive way and leave the violence with all of its pictures and colors.
Mr. President, all the killing that happened and is happening now in Iraq in this evil way and this size which went to far is a picture of the hate that is inside the hearts of bad men, to all of the human race they are fighting God first because he created all the people that they are killing. Mr. President, all the Iraqis are asking your help, and God’s help and screaming to the world for help from the wild killers. I was day dreaming and I felt that the Euphrates blaming the Tigris and telling him that he didn’t breathe the smell of the Iraqi mskoof (kind of Iraqi fish delicacy) since a long time so the Tigris said to the Euphrates, "Protect me from the terrorists and I will make the smell of the mskoof come to you and to the whole world which like our mskoof and I felt, Mr. President that the mountain and the valley that met together and hugged with all love and hot tears because of the happiness of the meeting again and the mountain told the valley that he is so worried; the valley told the mountain not to be worried sad or scared because our survival is very clear that our relationship will stay united forever and live in peace under the truth of democracy and freedom. At last, Mr. President, I will be the first Iraqi child who meets you again with my sister when you come to visit us in Iraq and I will try my best to do it and if we have the chance to visit your country which is now our country also I will ask from our Ambassador in the States to take me to you to thank you and tell you that all the Iraqi children love you so much. Also all my mothers, fathers and brothers and I am sure they have all the same feelings as me.
Live to help the human race survive and thank you, your friend the Iraqi child.
This letter was forwarded to the President, as well as to some Congressmen and news agencies, in the hopes that the American people will see that there is at least one person who is appreciative of the job being done here.
