His Excellency Jalal Talabani, President
Hearty congratulations on your election as President of
Best wishes to you and to your Honourable Deputies for
the future of our Country.
This is a historic achievement for the multi- ethnic composition
of Iraq in particular and of the Fertile Crescent in general,
in which the role not only of the Kurds but also of the
Jews- both dead and living, should be recognised.
I and many others who did not immigrate to Israel, have
been exiled for 40 years and have waited long enough to
regain our nationality. Having voted in the recent historic
Iraqi Elections, it is time that you will grant us with
this favour while we are still among the living.
