Old Clothes and Porridge

So it’s back to “Old clothes and porridge” as my father used to describe the New Year. Or perhaps not quite for we politicians, with a General Election in the offing.

Peshmerga Christmas

“They came to my village and destroyed it and killed all the people – men, women and children – for no reason but being Kurdish,” said an old man to me on a visit to Iraq last week. I was there with the House of Commons Defence Committee visiting troops and government in Kurdistan, Baghdad and then Jordan. It was odd to be there so close to Christmas – hearing all the old names and being so close to Christ’s birthplace. The wicked murders across the North of Iraq – in Mosul, Tikrit and in so many little towns and villages brought to mind Herod’s villainous massacre of the first-born in an attempt to pre-empt any possible new ‘King of the Jews.’ Politics in the Middle East has not changed much in 2000 years.
