After decades of witnessing military and political fighting - the latter more fiercer - the Iraqi-Kurdish, or Kurdish-Iraqi leader, Jalal Talabani, passed away.
After the news of Mam Jalal’s death, I remembered a news story published in March 2009, that Iraqi President Jalal Talabani said according to Iranian Mehrabad agency: “I am not planning to continue as president. At the end of this year, my term will end and I hope to retire. I’ll return home and I’ll have time to write my memoirs.” At the time, I wrote wishing that he would have the time for this majestic matter. I wrote how his memoirs would illuminate the darkness of political ignorance in Arab and Kurdish referrals in history.Mashari Althaydi
