A Step forward for democracy in defiance of terrorism
Today's agreement of the main political parties including the Iraqi Islamic Party on the draft of the constitution has been described by some as a historic day.
The agreement came after amendment of some of the points which raised differences between the various political groups. On the other hand it left the doors open for farther changes after discussion with in 4 months after the new election by the end of the year.
The Iraqi Islamic party represents large number of the Sunni Arabs in Iraq and this will push large number to join the political process.
This is a very good achievement indeed and a big blow on the face of the terrorism. It came by the time the blood shed continued in Iraq daily. The latest is the killing of more than 30 Iraqis in a centre for army recruitment in Telafar today by a suicidal thug.
The big blow on the face of terrorism will be on Saturday 15 Oct 2005.
