Take a look at Jubilee Iraq, an organization dedicated to making sure the Iraqi people are not held liable for the "odious debt" incurred by the previous government. They also have an online petition you can sign.

New to sidebar: The Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch and All the East now has a website. The link points to the english version, on the assumption that that's the language most of my visitors read. There is also an Arabic page.

Official Site:

A report from Rev. Dr. Nuhad Tomeh on his visit to Iraq in late July and early August. The structure for oversight of the council's work by the local churches is being put into place, and some work is being done towards helping the local churches to restart the church-related schools they ran before the 1968 revolution. There's also a report on moves towards creating a Presbyterian synod of Iraq (or perhaps Iraq and the Gulf).
