Divine Creator, father, mother, son as one...If I, my family, relatives, and ancestors have offended you, your family, relatives and ancestors in thoughts, words, deeds and actions from the beginning of our creation to the present, we ask your forgiveness...Let this cleanse, purify, re-lease, cut all the negative memories, blocks, energies and vibrations and transmute these unwanted energies to pure light....And it is done.

Repeat during 15 minutes, visualizing the RV already manifested in our reality and all humanity rejoicing in peace and abundance:

I’m sorry! Please forgive! I love you! Thank you!



Sit quietly with eyes closed and feet flat on the floor. Take three long slow cleansing breathes, inhale through the nose, exhale slowly through perched lips. Postulate securing your grounding cord from your first Chakra and the bottom of each foot all the way down into the center of the Earth. Postulate your cord from your crown Chakra traveling all the way up into the cosmos to connect to Source. Slowly inhale Golden White Healing Light (Energy) from Source coming down through your Crown Chakra pushing out all dark, destructive, negative energy through your root Chakra and both feet down to the center of the Earth to be healed, renewed and recycled.

For the advancement of performance of an invitation to re-evaluate and classify all banks

BAGHDAD - Suha Shaykhli

Experts and specialists seeking to develop solutions to address the economic problems by offering proposals aimed at facilitating the economic reform process of the reform of the banking system as a financier President and Investor actor in the development process needed by Iraq under the current circumstances.

In this regard introduced banking expert Samir Alnasiri proposals to promote the reality banking is studying the Central Bank of the reality experienced by banks (government and private) through re - evaluation and classification of these banks, assigning a specialist team in financial analysis and determine the efficiency performance standards for banks (administrative and credit) with the participation of the Iraqi Association of banks, the advisers and experts , bankers independents do not work in these banks, in order to prepare the audit and evaluation report and re - classification of the banks.

The banking sector in Iraq , seven state banks are all from the Rafidain and Rasheed Iraqi trade Bank of the industrial, agricultural, real estate and bank and the Islamic Bank Mesopotamia, along with 44 banks waged , including a number of Islamic banking specialist to Besides branches of foreign banks and Arab.

He Alnasiri in an interview for »morning» to the importance of the application of the board of the Central Bank decision on controls the nomination of board members and staff leaders in the banks, and to emphasize the separation between owners and executive departments and not allow them to intervene at all Executive to work in the bank.

He pointed out that the economic crisis pant features since mid - 2014 and continued repercussions so far, behind them reasons known to economists and to the public as well, specific reasons of financial mismanagement in state institutions, and dispose of non - thoughtful petroleum resources generated in previous years and the decline in oil prices by 65 percent from what was Thus, in addition to the costs and requirements of the war on terror.

And confirmed the existence of steps to address the wrong policies in the economy is the importance of developing a methodology or strategy clear for the Iraqi economy, in addition to the coordination between fiscal and monetary policies, and not to rely entirely and exclusively on oil resources and to develop plans and programs targeted to diversify resources and encourage other such as agriculture, industry, tourism and economic sectors.

And the need to apply the strategies drawn up by the committees and bodies advisers in the Council of Ministers in collaboration with the UN and international organizations that about 16 strategic numbered not been implemented so far as they are not supported - day financial abundance of oil revenues.

He focused Alnasiri the need to go about building and securing infrastructure , sponsoring and supporting the Iraqi economy and institutions, and the adoption of mechanisms and the correct methods of monetary policy applications and find an alternative for the auction of the currency being faced criticism kit.

He added that the biggest problems experienced by cash trading market and an unstable exchange rate dinar, and the flight of the proportion of foreign currency out of Iraq to the goals of non - economic and download the central bank responsibility that must be common to government institutions such as ministries of trade, planning and finance and interior , as well as speculators and Tjaralamlh, it all led to a fall in the savings rate of the monetary mass in banks to 23 percent compared to the compactness adult 77 percent outside the banking sector.

He said that this indicates the state of a lack of trust among customers and a number of banks due to low liquidity in some of them to minimal , which led to the inability of these banks can fulfill their obligations to customers upon request to refund their deposits.

And keep the application of laws that do not fit with the reality of the economy , said Alnasiri: that these laws are governing the banking and economic work in Iraq in addition to the illegal investment and money laundering , which is to introduce amendments to them finally.

He continued: Since everyone knows that the ring core and first in economic reform is the banking sector, any finance sector the investment , which should play the desired role in economic development, which requires reviewing, analyzing and diagnosing the causes and try to reach a successful solution to the crisis being experienced by both the economy and the sector banking.

Capitalism .. global and local

9/6/2016 0:00

Walid Khaled al - Zaidi

Can not be denied that the Iraqi economy is heavily influenced the global economy to the fact that our country is part of an international system based on a package of changes that occur in the world today, for example (price changes in the global oil markets), as well as problems and regional crises that occur in most countries in the region such as the imposition of international economic Alakoaat some countries in the region and political problems such as changing regimes in other countries, which is reflected in one way or Bakhraly the volume of trade between those countries and Iraq.

But nevertheless, Iraq 's dependence on global capitalism, in moving the national forces of production process and mold within the framework of this free economic doctrine which a lot of caveats and problems and the pictures are not clear and the results of Athmd consequences in the final outcome, so that they appear disadvantages in the event of global crises , where more is affected by Iraq and cause a deterioration in the case of integration between the pieces and local markets.

The subordination of Iraq , the world economy free now walking without limitations and would be productive base of the national weaken local capitalism (so to speak) as the cause about the erosion of commodity production in the different national sectors such as agriculture, industry, housing size, as well as labor market services sector.

The opening up of Iraq on the global markets and benefit from the experiences of successful the vulnerability positive does not mean blind submission have Awalanzoa under the jilbab is familiar not deliberately , but comes through seeking more of those experiences catalysts and the factors that will encourage the Iraqi private sector and happening local capitalist revolution take the right tracks and vast Mshatha in the diversification of the national economy , sources and give him a field in contribute effectively to a prompt and sophisticated economic decision - making also contributes to supplying the domestic market with goods and goods commensurate with the needs of the Iraqi people and supports services market and lays a solid rings in the overall national development series.

But we have to say: that the local capitalism requires a set of economic policies , such as the adoption of effective imports to move the wheel of development, especially activating a number of thoughtful reforms that fall within the framework of activating the private sector and update images production and strengthen its sources and that issue in turn can not be successful , the vast Mdyatea did not take seamlessly linked to the investment climate purity and free of Almarqlat Blur and this in turn will lead the capital to activate activities national economic and encouraging gross domestic product and limit the imported foreign and be an essential resource of national income at the government level and the level of the individual (both), as well as securing suitable jobs for Iraqis and the liberation of Iraq 's budget than relying on the returns of the export of oil to world markets' and thus puts a fundamental building block in difficulties in identifying the financial crisis experienced by our dear country.

Economic reforms .. but!

9/6/2016 0:00

Yasser Metwally

Count many economists to stimulate the productive sectors of agricultural and industrial «domestic production» to address the lack of fiscal revenue due to the crisis of global oil prices and the war Daesh terrorist.

It is recommended they need to apply the product to protect consumer protection laws, the government had approved by for this purpose and of course the decision of the Council of Ministers and its recommendation to approve these laws in parliament.

Well directed sound really in order to activate the productive sectors which achieves several economic targets , including the reduction of unemployment by creating jobs for the unemployed, the activation coefficient stalled for the operation of the unemployed due to stoppage, inventory turnover internally to cut out hard currency.

As a reminder, the Iraqi media network , has adopted the slogan «made in Iraq» in support of the government directed to encourage national production.

But the strange thing is we see loss of coordination between the Iraqi ministries to support these trends and procedures

We are not against contracts with all countries in the world, but the requirements is locally produced to ensure the success of our decisions and our attitude in activating the productive sectors.

These contradictions in the actions indicate the extent of the imbalance and lack of coordination between sectors and ministries or lack of proper vision in decision - making.

The bottom line : we need to review and assess the exact needs in order to import the organization according to the real requirements of the missing and is produced locally.

For this Ndawaly bring life to the center of the market study in order to adopt the indicators of basic needs

and so we base our planning and our plans import accurate information contribute to achieving a balance between the producer and importer to be sound business decisions.

On the other hand we have organized ourselves to respect our decisions away from the individual interpretations that we lost the elements of economic reform desired by the government through the national rebirth of our production through activation of economic sectors opportunities.

ghost757 says(7:09 PM):

Thousands of civil servants loyal to Shiite leader Muqtada al-Sadr went on strike Sept. 4, World Bulletin reported. On Sept. 2, al-Sadr urged employees — except for security forces — to stage a two-day strike to force Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to reform the government. He also called on Iraqis to launch a hunger strike inside mosques, shrines and churches to pressure al-Abadi to replace his government with technocrats untainted by corruption or sectarian affiliations. Al-Sadr is adept at galvanizing large numbers of demonstrators on short notice and has been staging protests for months. The political unrest comes as the prime minister also struggles to manage sectarian forces in the fight against the Islamic State.

ghost757 says(7:19 PM):

Here is a good background piece on the GOI/KRG deal on oil:

ghost757 says(7:19 PM):

After months of disagreement, the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and the Iraqi government have taken the first steps toward cooperation on oil exports and revenue. On Tuesday, the two sides agreed to jointly export the approximately 150,000 barrels per day of oil produced at several fields in the disputed province of Kirkuk that had been shut down since March. For now, the deal sidesteps the biggest points of disagreement between the governments in Arbil and Baghdad: Iraqi Kurdistan's right to independently export oil and its respective share of the Iraqi budget. In fact, the details of the deal itself point to Iraq's movement toward a more fragmented and increasingly federalized political structure.

The province of Kirkuk epitomizes the power struggles taking place in Iraq — not only between Arbil and Baghdad but also between Baghdad, Ankara and Tehran. The Kirkuk oil fields, which have 500,000 bpd of installed production capacity and potential for more, are a significant part of the reason for that struggle. The Kurds have de facto control over the territory and want to legitimize it; Baghdad and Tehran want to keep Kirkuk officially out of Kurdish hands.

ghost757 says(7:20 PM):

Arbil and Baghdad put their pragmatism on display in the new oil deal, splitting the spoils down the middle. Under the terms of Tuesday's agreement, each government will export 75,000 bpd using the pipeline running through semi-autonomous Iraqi Kurdistan. The deal also stipulates that, while the KRG will pay for the salaries of peshmerga fighters in Kirkuk, the Iraqi government will pay the province's civil servant salaries. Both are lingering financial issues that threaten to further destabilize Iraq.

On its own, the oil sold under terms of the deal will not immediately make a great deal of financial difference to either Baghdad or Arbil. But making the deal is about more than the revenue it generates. Earlier this year, a tranche of a sizable International Monetary Fund aid package was disbursed to Baghdad after officials from the IMF and the United States made multiple visits to both Baghdad and Arbil. The IMF money will provide incentive for both sides to remain cooperative, because if that helps keep the Iraqi government functioning, the IMF will keep pumping money into the coffers of both cash-strapped governments.

While the promise of IMF money set the table for cooperation with the KRG, a political shakeup helped bring the deal to fruition. During Iraq's Cabinet reshuffle earlier this month, petroleum industry veteran Jabar al-Luaibi was named oil minister. Once he took his post, he immediately made overtures to the Kurds, voicing his willingness to enter into a deal that would lead to a resumption of production in the Kirkuk fields and more broad cooperation beyond just those fields. Al-Luaibi was added to the Cabinet to placate interests in and around Basra — where he is from — but he has always pushed for more local control over the oil sector, which means that even though he is not a Kurd, he may be someone who can at least live with more devolution of the oil sector.

And, of course, another factor driving closer functional cooperation between Baghdad and Arbil is the military campaign against the Islamic State that is approaching Mosul. With operational planning for the battle against the city's Islamic State occupiers in full swing, ensuring the continued cooperation of the Kurdish peshmerga requires guaranteeing their salaries. And until the tenuous security situation throughout the country becomes more settled, a Kurdish independence referendum is not in the cards. Statements made by Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi last week supporting the constitutionality of a Kurdish independence referendum did not represent a shift in Baghdad's position, but rather a gesture intended to draw the KRG toward Tuesday's compromise.

External partners and patrons such as the United States, Turkey and Iran all have vested interests in ensuring that the ties between Arbil and Baghdad endure, and not just because of the ongoing fight against the Islamic State. Turkey has built close economic ties with the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) but does not want to see the KRG become an actor independent of Baghdad. Ankara's goals include benefiting from Kurdistan economically, containing Kurdish attempts at achieving independence, and denying Turkey's own opposition Kurdish groups a rear base within Iraq from which to operate. But Turkey's attempts to maintain its leverage over Kurdistan are challenged from multiple directions. As Turkey seeks to reinforce its dominance in the KRG, it will run up against Iranian interests. Iran, with its ties to the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) and the Gorran parties, which have formally aligned themselves, can push back against Turkey's influence by supporting the KRG's two main opposition groups. Ankara and Tehran also use the ethnically rooted Arab-Turkmen competition within Kirkuk province as a proxy battle.

This week's oil export deal raises the possibility that Baghdad and Arbil could find grounds for broader cooperation over oil exports. Arbil has consistently demanded that in order to export Kurdish oil through Iraq's State Organization for Marketing of Oil (SOMO), it wants to receive the full 17 percent of the federal budget mandated to it by the Iraqi Constitution. Al-Abadi has said his government was willing to abide by that demand, though the reality is that the market value of its oil is worth less than that portion of the budget and it would be unlikely that Baghdad — given its budgetary constraints — would deliver the full amount to the KRG. Moreover, Iraq has also moved to blacklist three tankers that transported Kurdish crude outside the state's sales framework, highlighting Baghdad's continued desire to undermine the KRG's attempts to export crude independently.

From the Kurdish perspective, a broader agreement allowing SOMO to market oil produced within the KRG that resulted in

ghost757 says(7:20 PM):

its full share of the budget could be beneficial. Trust in such an arrangement, however, could be difficult for Arbil to find. The Kurds have been burned before by such an arrangement, namely the last time they worked with Baghdad. Even if such a deal could be agreed upon in the interim, the close relationship between the KDP and Ankara means that even if the price of oil rose or Baghdad politicized oil revenue and withheld it, Arbil would retain the ability to renege on the deal. The same is not true, for example, of all the oil produced in Kirkuk.

Tuesday's export agreement is a de facto acknowledgement of Baghdad's reliance on Kurdish infrastructure, and allowing Kurdistan the rights to revenue associated with Kirkuk's oil could set a precedent. Kurdistan is not the only region in Iraq that has demanded more local control over oil exports. Iraq's productive southern Sunni population in Basra has demanded the same level of control, even forcing Baghdad to split the South Oil Co. into two companies, one specifically to overlook Basra's oil fields. Al-Luaibi, who hails from the region, will likely feel pressure to reproduce the revenue-sharing deal for Iraq's south. That will only intensify competition in southern Iraq, where tribes, populations and rivalries span the borders with Iran and Kuwait. And, as in Kirkuk, the rest of Iraq will continue to be fought over by its much larger neighbors, with oil as a crux of competition. Ultimately, this competition will continue to result in varying aspects of de facto federalism in the fragile country.
