A Message from an Iraqi for Herta Däubler-Gmelin

Last week, a “human rights” delegation from the German Bundestag paid a visit to Erbil in the Kurdish autonomous region of northern Iraq. The delegation was headed by none other than the former German Minister of Justice, Herta Däubler-Gmelin: the same Herta Däubler-Gmelin who in September 2002 famously compared George W. Bush to Adolf Hitler on account of his plans to topple the regime of Saddam Hussein.

The Iraqi human rights activist Falah Muradkhin Shakaram, a survivor of the notorious poison gas attack on Halabja in Iraqi Kurdistan, wonders why Ms. Däubler-Gmelin is only concerned about human rights in Iraq now. See my translation of his commentary on here.
