And, not sure how I missed this old article...
N.Y. Liberals explain their trip to visit Sheik Abdullah Humedi Ajeel al-Yawar, of the Shammar tribe (N. Iraq) Charming, strong, and witty... Article.
(Note that the article sounds third-party.)
A must read
Of course, a good suggestion for liberals, is NOT to behave as some of their agencies around the world, have... Especially agencies that have a reputation of being too pesky... The Video interview is: HERE.
He spoke of his Shammar tribe...
N.Y. Times writes:
"The tribe, as Sheik Abdullah will remind you often, is the first and basic unit of power. It is the building block of Iraq now and it was when the Assyrians were going around carving winged bulls on everything. The tribe goes back before such novelties as modern capitalism, back before the state, before the big religion" more.
(Will post more later...)
