An Ocean ! /A Brook !/ Why l Left Iraq And Immigrated To The USA.

Why I Left Iraq And Immigrated To The  United  States  Of America?
Iraq is a Muslim COUNTRY ,its constitution like every Muslim country indicates that Islam is the official religion of the Country and its above the law.(No Human Rights)

As christian l was oppressed , hated , discriminated against .When l graduated with distinction from Baghdad University and was eligible for scholarship to Germany to get my Phd.

l was deprived of my scholarship because l am Christian and the education ministry gave the scholarship to 3 Muslims members of the Baa’th party (The party of Saddam Hussein a branch of the fascist party ).

In iraq and in the Middle-East in general there is hate pigatory ,envy, jealousy discrimination against Christians and against Jews.

Once l got married and we had our first Child l realized that l can not let my children grow up and go through what l went through in a country that values its citizens not for being dedicated , and highly educated to serve their country , BUT for being Muslim Or Being Christian, .Of course The Muslim citizen is # 1 in a Muslim country the rest are 2nd. class citizen..

.We lived in Lebanon for 3 months to get our Visa from the American Embassy .We went through interview after interview , finger print , complete physical check up , paid the hospital 250 dollars and paid 150 dollars each for the Visa.Paid for our flights to Chicago 1200 dollars.

today l see from many people her in this gracious USA not a small brook or small river of Hate, Envy , Discrimination  , Racism , Blind Hypocrisy ,For Which l Left Iraq, But  An Ocean  Of These  Negative Hateful Elements  Against us for being Christians and value the American dream , Family values , decency, working hard., respect the laws and the constitution.

Now our Daughter and our Son have their own families in this great country .l fulfilled my promise not to raise my children in a country where Hate is a religion for some people., Where human life has no value in a region lost its humanity.
