I salute you
on your latest issue 74, and I enjoyed the pointed communication
you have sent the BBC regarding their infamous programme.
Thank you for your publication.

My name is Aric
Lapter. Im 25 years old, a racing driver from Tel
Aviv, Israel. I intend to be the first Israeli racing driver
ever to get to Formula One. I would like to invite you to
visit my web site:
I was wondering
if you could write about me in your journal and in that
way helping me to find sponsors for my racing?
I read the article
Role in Iraqi Music" in "The Scribe".
I am writing for permission to re-publish it in

I am unable
to read on-line or download and print the recent issue of
"The Scribe". I felt a real loss when you
decided to discontinue the printed journal and opted for
internet publishing. We spent hours trying to print the
last issue and failed miserably but who can really sit in
front of the computer screen and read 83 pages? I can understand
that the cost of producing and mailing the journal became
prohibitive and I, for one, would be very happy to take
out a subscription and send in dues. It is well worth it.
You have done
a remarkable job at bringing us together through the printed
journal. I consider it to have a priceless historical value
in the tradition of our oral teachings and relating our
It is also a
great source of pride for our Baghdadi Jews who have picked
up their lifes threads and continue to flourish all
over the world. Not to mention a glorious testimony for
our community, our schools, our faith, our rituals and customs.
It is not a matter of printing cost; we have to move with
As well as the
internet download, we offer a colour print-out version.
The cost of a print-out is £10 or US $20 which includes
postage and packing. Cheques should be made payable to "The

Mr Dangoor feels
that the service which The Scribe gave on behalf
of the Baghdadi Jews has come to an end. The material has
become history and does not need to continue. As far as
providing a medium of communication between members of the
community worldwide, this can be done much better by means
of the internet.
I am delighted to receive my computer print-out of The Scribe.
It was like receiving a precious gift. Thank you ever so
much for all you do...
May God give you strength, protect you and keep you.

Thank you. I even had it bound.
I wish to congratulate
you on the last issue of The Scribe, full of information
and lots of data.

I am the editor

together a small piece on The Jews of Babylon and ran across
your website and hence the above-referenced article. Although

may our paper use the article?

I enjoyed very
much the recent historical article about the diary of a
Jewish lady who re-visited Baghdad some 100 years ago.
I have been
actively writing in the net for several years about the
necessity of the return of the 400,000 Iraqi Jews to Iraq
from Israel, but I was very disappointed by the directions
of your magazine, which still believes that Israel is a
good and right thing. Jews in Europe have developed a much
better understanding about Israel and its duty in this world.
Facts are by now clear to every wise Jew that this project
was a trap than a solution, customised by the same non-believers
in Christianity, with non-believers in Judaism (Zionists)
to serve some post with business set-ups than any religious
base. I wish that Iraqi Jews be more aware of the big plot
that European Jews started to realise. Many balanced articles
were written about the 1941 Farhood. Closing eyes on those
and stopping right at any event without giving it a second
thought is very disappointing.
I do not see
why should you mix between Israel and Iraqi Jews. Israel
is currently 60% non-Jewish by population. Iraqi Jews are
