Statement of Al-Hakim foundation:

Mr. Ahmed Al-Immarah from Iraq spoke in this panel on behalf of Al-Hakim foundation:
Intervention, Mr. Ahmed AL-Imarah , the representative of the AL-Hakim  foundation in Iraq

Mr. President, distinguished         
Good afternoon and thank you for giving me the opportunity to talk about the phenomenon of racial discrimination, xenophobia, and
in light of the new situation in Iraq, political change and democratization that followed the war in 2003, the phenomenon of racial
discrimination in the level of Iraq seems a tragic and unfortunate, as the attacks against and killings of many scientific and social
personalities and clerics from different religions because of the intellectual affiliations and ideologies, whether linked to ideologies
that religions or different nationalities living in Iraq, and increased advertising and rumors planted hatred and enmity in the hearts of
ordinary people of various foreign peoples, and striking, though, that behind it is not only terrorists and extremists, but the remnants
of the Baath Party loyalists of the former dictatorial regime known as the famous crimes, despite efforts by the Government in
reducing this phenomenon is still serious problem that need to be addressed  .

And about our work, the systematic and continuous administration of various programs and festivals, conferences and courses to
cultural and intellectual control of that phenomenon and a culture of tolerance and respect for minorities and ethnic groups and
communities, the Foundation with the cooperation and participation of various nationalities from all over the world, provides various
forms of support to all international organizations working in the fields of culture, humanity and service, this institution is one of the
components of Iraqi society in times of crises and difficult circumstances has provided significant humanitarian support to the
Christians and Muslims, Arabs and Kurds and all minorities, without discrimination and is working hard to bring the views and
support mechanisms for cooperation among all components of Iraqi society.

And to offer to you the summary of this picture, we call upon the international community and the Iraqi government to do justice to the
victims of racial discrimination in Iraq, and to compensate the families of the victims and to protect them from displacement and
loss, and develop programs to reduce this phenomenon and to stand firmly against the promoters with a view to eliminate them
once and save the Iraqi society.. ..         

Thank you, Mr. President
