    Music & theatre classes back to life in Iraq

    raq’s new education minister has re-opened music and theater classes in art institutes in the country, thwarting his predecessor’s ban on the classes.
    Mohammed Tamim who was inaugurated as Iraq’s new education minister late December 2010, told Alarabiya that prior the closure of the music and theatre classes, the decision was studied by his predecessor, Khudhair al-Khuza’i.
    But now as Iraq’s new education minister, Tamim said that he became the decision-maker.
    I rejected the closure of the music and theatre classes and I ordered that they should continue,” he said.

    The ex-education minister did not disclose the reason of the ban, but most of the students and the teachers in Iraq's art institutes speculated religion as the reason.
    One of the teaching staff in Baghdad’s Fine Art Institute told Al Arabiya that during one of his previous media interviews he criticized the ban imposed on music and theatre classes.
    He said that he was interrogated by the police afterward, but now due to the new announcement of re-opening the classes the “probe” against him was overturned.
    Al-Khuza’i has also called for the removal of statues found at the entrance of Baghdad’s Fine Art Institute for its questionable permissibility in Islam.
    Iraqis who were against the ban agreed that music, theatre and statues do not violate religion and that the ban is against freedom of expression.
    Tamim belongs to the secular al-Iraqiya list led by Iyad Allawi and has worked as Karkuk’s university’s dean in 2003 and 2004. Later he became a member of the House of Representatives for two consecutive cycles.

    The birthday thing has something to do with when someone is allowed to start school, so for example anyone born in lets say the year 1960 goes to x year (schoolwise), though someone born on the 31st of December 1959 will have to go to x-1 year (schoolwise) which would mean they are set back a whole year, so they would change their birthdays. - Or something to that effect, I'm probably wrong in the length of the dates or so, it could be that it is from july to july or something. Because I know that for some reason quite a few iraqi's have a birthdate of 1st of July or 1st of January. :holmes:

    Wish I had a picture to share! He is honestly the most beautiful male ever.
    I have NEVER seen anyone so beautiful, not even on TV (Forget Chace crawford/Ian Somerhalder/Brad Pitt/Tom Cruise- FORGET THEM ALL!). Seriously its not fair on humanity, how could someone be so beautiful? Iraq has done very well for itself. I still dont get how one person could be so perfect, body/FACE/personality-wise. /Rant over (Although I could go on for MUCH longer).

    Sadly I have no picture. Besides I dont know if a photograph would do him justice- even if he looks gorgeous in it, it will never equal how beautiful he is in real life!

    I could, however, write you a whole essay about him. Very easily. After I go and cry a little over his extreme beauty.

    That is a huge understatement

    I see him everyday, 5 days a week, is all I can say. The BEST 5 days each week of my life. Especially during one of those days where we're in the same room for an hour *faints*. Words fail me.....!!!

    To be honest, I know one Iraqi guy who I would describe as really quite attractive, but he's nowhere near the best looking guy I've seen. He has the most unbearable personality that makes all else irrelevant, though.

    But yeah, you've made me quite curious now... :smug:

    To anyone who has lived in Iraq, or who has family who've lived in Iraq: would you/they rather Iraq as it is now or pre-2003?

    Nooo this one is definitely THE most beautiful human on EARTH. I swear. And its not just me who thinks that, its EVERYONE who Ive ever heard speak about him. But I definitely admire his beauty most. They all just say he should be a model. I say he should just be mine
