UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie visits Syrian refugees and Iraqi returnees in Iraq
-
Press Releases, 16 September 2012
-
Domiz Refugee Camp, Iraq, 16 September 2012 – UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie today hailed the Iraqi government’s willingness to host Syrian refugees fleeing violence and expressed her hope that all Syrians seeking asylum in Iraq would be welcomed.
-
“I want to highlight the noble efforts of the Iraqi government and the people of Iraq to support Syrian refugees,” said Ms Jolie. “At this juncture, it is critical that Iraq receives urgent international support and continues to welcome refugees across its borders.”
-
In the Iraqi capital on Saturday, Ms. Jolie met with senior government officials and spent time with Iraqis, until recently refugees in Syria, who have returned to Iraq after fleeing violence in their places of former refuge.
-
She spent today meeting with Syrian refugees in the Domiz camp in northern Iraq. She also met officials of the Kurdistan Regional Government, including the prime minister, the interior minister and the governor of Dohuk. Many of the officials she met were former refugees. “We know how it feels,” one official told Jolie.
-
In her meetings Saturday in Baghdad with the Minister of Foreign Affairs Hoshyar Zebari and the Minister of Displacement and Migration Dindar Najman Shafeeq and on Sunday with Kurdistan Regional Government officials in Dohuk, Ms. Jolie pledged further UNHCR support for the government in receiving and hosting additional Syrian refugees as their numbers rapidly increase.
-
This was her fourth and final stop of a tour of countries neighbouring Syria, where more than 260,000 Syrian refugees have been registered since the conflict began in March 2011. Earlier this week, Ms Jolie visited Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey with UN High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres. They both pledged continued support and emphasized the life-saving importance of maintaining open borders and hosting Syrians in need.
-
This is Ms Jolie’s fourth visit to Iraq. Some 1.3 million Iraqis remain displaced in their country and the government has made it a priority to improve their standard of living and find solutions for them through voluntary return to their places of origin or through local integration.
-
“Combined with the new influx of Syrian refugees and the sudden return of over 30,000 of their own citizens, the complexity of the situation and the challenges for this country just emerging from conflict cannot be overstated,” Ms. Jolie said.

@QQQQ:

it´s incredible the number of people who want to see and thanks Angie.

It´s a little crazy and frighting to have Angie in the middle of that crowd, but she is really a brave and fearless beautiful women.

Even in this confusion of people she mantain the friendly acttitude, smiling and waving to the people.

For the Refuges it must be a moment to remember forever. They must think that Angie is really an angel.

One of the most beautiful women in the world, the most famous women in the world, one of the best actors in the world have the time and want to be there with them, the refuges, probably the most abandon people in the world must be really happy with this visit.

Angie are doing something so incredible that we don´t know the true impact of her actions, it´s something so great that the world will give credit only in the future.

Angie is much great and amazing than we imagine and the world must prize her for that. I love this women she is a surprise every day.

@QQQQ: #52, good morning 4Q, thanks for the link to those beautiful photos. The people were happy to have her in their midst, we can tell by the volume of people wanted to be near her. I noticed she has a bruise on her left hand. I hope she is alright. (I’m not talking about the tattoo). Get home safely Angie, you did a great job an this trip.

I get that people don’t like AJ…which totally fine that’s their choice but to keep saying she is doing this for publicity…now that’s plain stupid. If she wanted publicity, all she has to do is cut check make big show of giving it away.
.
No one can deny that’s a far easier way to go about it…easier than leaving your family for days on trips to war torn countries. Let’s say, just for argument sake…it was just for publicity, then I wish more people would go that length because quite frankly at the people at the receiving end don’t care.

Here is your laugh of the day…………warning if you have a sensitive gag reflexs, keep a pot handy……..this is what I saw on CNN

Some dude with a panel of talking heads including Serena W. posing the question………..which woman should young girls fashion themselves after:

Are you ready? Drum roll…….Kim Kartrashian or Kate, the Duchess?

I swear this was the question. Some had a real dilemma choosing…..what the hell has the world come to????????

BTW, the photos of Angie posted on this thread are a m a z i n g. What a FACE. I was laughing to myself at the thought of Ticky with her hair pulled back like that and little makeup in a caftan to hide the body……….and the crazies wonder why Brad wouldn’t even look back over his shoulder at the fameho…………..really?

Can you imagine Brad thinking for one moment he could ever meet another woman to hold a candle to Angie………that is in answer to the loons who keep trying to have him paired with a co-star. Give it up already………like going from a Porche to a bike.

@PT #7

Thanks PT for your post. You go girl.

Is your Boo Boo playing end of the year matches.?

5 /5
But it’s what writer/director Andrew Dominik (Chopper, Jesse James) does in between his superbly-staged hits that makes the film stand out.

Mostly, he just lets his brilliant ensemble cast chew over the razor sharp and often hilarious script.

Pitt is effortlessly brilliant in scenes where the exasperated Cogan tries to explain the basics of organised crime to the squeamish lawyer. A cantankerous Ben Mendelsohn and nervy Scoot McNairy also make a superb double-act as the two useless ex-cons who carry out the heist.


But there are plenty of reasons why this film’s US release has just been put back to a more Oscar-friendly late November.

I wouldn’t like to guess which gong studio boss Harvey Weinstein is thinking of.

It could be all of them.

The Verdict: 5/5

Artists and civil society gather to celebrate Peace Day in Cairo
NGO’s, an art institution and a local second hand bookstore with many others are set to celebrate the International Day of Peace on 21 September with concerts and workshops (video)

Darb 1718 cultural centre will host a one-day event organised by local NGO’s, CISV Egypt and Masterpeace, to promote peace on the United Nations’ International Day of Peace on Friday 21 September.

The event will include concerts starting 4pm by local musicians Salalem, Like Jelly, Ze Khodz, High on Body Fat, Ahmed Safi, Abu Mariam, Shady Ahmed and his band, Rash Radio and the Kassettes and possibly more popular bands and musicians. The musical lineup was the contribution of Bikya Bookstore in Maadi, who regularly host small concerts at their venue.

Cairo’s Peace Day celebration will also include an NGO fair, with NGO booths to raise awareness about their issues, recruit volunteers and promote social development activities, such as Wataneya Society, 350, Alwan wa Awtar and Banaty.

The International Day of Peace was established by the United Nations General Assembly vote in 2001 after independent filmmaker Jeremy Gilley traveled around the world, meeting world leaders and peacekeepers, trying to promote the concept. He founded the NGO Peace One Day, and its sole purpose is to promote the day, along with peace education and initiatives for non-violence around the world. Celebrities like Angelina Jolie and Jude Law support the initiative.

Happy Sunday. Thanks for all the videos and pixs.

the most beautiful woman in the world with amazing heart. God bless angie!

@Rose#44

Great post Rose.

@QQQQ

Thanks for your information. All the best.

Angieeeeeee, come home now bb. Those pics were amaaaaaaazing 4Q, that serene smile, waving, in the midst of a sea of people – wow….I’m in awe…and I’ve been her fan for more than a decade.

@Premalee: How are you my dear? Hope you have a wonderful Sunday. We are so proud of Angie, what a wonderful human being. Always looking out for the less fortunate. We received some great photos today from some of our fans willing to share with us their great finds. I know Brad and the kids are counting down the minutes before Angie returns home, and she must be so missing them, bless her heart.

I JUST MADE A DONATION TO THE SYRIAN REFUGEES. WITHOUT HER EFFORTS AND BRAVERY, WE WOULD NOT KNOW THE INSIDE OF WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH THE REFUGEES.
ANGELINA GIVES ME HOPE THAT GOD TRULY EXIST THROUGH PEOPLE.
