LJ’s Detailed Explaination of Iraq’s New Federal Court Law

HAT TIP:  LJ’s Next Step Skype Room – posted by LJ


THANK YOU FOR ASKING THE QUESTION OF THE FEDERAL COURT…I LOVE LEARNING AND THIS IS WHAT I FOUND:

THE FEDERAL COURT LAW DEALS SPECIFICALLY WITH HOW THE COURT ARRIVES AT CIVIL RENDERINGS. PRIOR TO THE NEW GOV’T (2003) THE SADDAM REGIME HAD VERY LIGHT CIVIL LAWS THAT ALLOWED FOR A MORE LAX ENVIRONMENT THAT COMPLIMENTED NIGHTLIFE AND A LIBERAL SOCIAL CULTURE. REMEMBER SUNNI MUSLIMS ARE NOT AS STRICT AS SHIITE MUSLIM; THEIR BELIEFS ALLOW FOR A STUDENT THAT MASTERS THE KORAN HAVE THE ABILITY TO BE APPOINTED AS IMAM. THE SHIITE BELIEVES THAT YOU HAVE TO BE A DIRECTLY CHOSEN BY GOD AND IS FREE FROM SIN AND MUST BE FOLLOWED SINCE THEIR APPOINTMENT IS BY GOD– NO IFS, ANDS OR BUTS. YOU MAY ASK, WHY IS THAT IMPORTANT?  WELL I WILL TELL YOU…

AFTER THE U.S. INVASION AND THE SET UP OF THE NEW GOV’T THE HIGH JUDICIAL COUNCIL HAD RESERVATIONS OF THE LAW THAT STIPULATED SHARIA JURISTS ON THE JUDICIAL COURT HAD VETO POWER OVER LAWS THAT DID NOT ADHERE TO THE STRICTNESS OF SHARIA LAW. IF IT WERE ALLOWED THEN LAWS THAT GOVERN WOMEN FOR EXAMPLE: SHARIA LAW SAYS THAT A WOMAN CAN BE ATTACKED FOR NOT DONNING A VEIL OR DRIVING A CAR; THIS DIRECTLY CONFLICTS WITH THE U.N. HUMAN RIGHTS ISSUES. IF SHIA JURISTS ARE ON THE COURT THEY WOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO VETO A LAW THAT WOULD ALLOW FOR A WOMAN TO NOT WEAR A VEIL OR DRIVE A CAR. THERE IS NO WAY FOR THE COURT TO ARRIVE AT A DECISION IF THOSE ON THE COURT COULD VETO FOR RELIGIOUS REASONS. AS THE COURT HAS, AND SHOULD HAVE, RESERVATIONS REGARDING SUCH POWERS THERE HAS BECOME A RIFT IN PASSING THE FEDERAL COURT ACT.
A PROPOSAL MORE THAN A YEAR AGO WAS PRESENTED BY THE GOVERNMENT AND WAS DISPUTED. THE FACT THAT THAT SHARIA JURISTS AND ALSO MEMBERS OF THE COURT WOULD BE ABLE TO VETO THERE WILL/WOULD BE ISSUES ON THE MANAGEMENT OF THE COURT LIKE WHO WOULD CHAIR SUCH A BODY AND HOW THAT INDIVIDUAL IS APPOINTED.  BASICALLY, ANOTHER STALEMATE SITUATION. THIS WOULD CHANGE THE COURT FROM BEING “LEGAL” TO BEING “JURISTIC.” THAT IS WHAT PROMPTED THE LEGAL COMMITTEE TO REVIEW THE BILL.

THEY PRESENTED IT TO PARLIAMENT, SAYING THEY WANT A COURT FREE OF A RIGHT TO VETO BASED ON SHARIA LAW. IT WAS DEBATED AND AGREED UPON AND IS NOW AWAITING A VOTE (SUPPOSEDLY ON TUESDAY) IT WAS TO BE PASSED LONG AGO WITH LAWS DEALING WITH PRISONER AMNESTY AND THE DEFERRED PAYMENT LAW.  THEY HAD POLITICAL DIFFERENCES AS THE NATIONAL ALLIANCE INSISTED THE SHARIA COURT JURISTS HAVE VETO POWER AND THE OTHER PARTIES DID NOT. THE ABILITY TO REVOKE LAWS AGREED ON IN PARLIAMENT, IS AND WOULD BE, A DETRIMENT TO GETTING ANYTHING DONE.  THE CONSTITUTION, AT INCEPTION, STATES THAT THE JUDICIARY MUST RESPECT THE PRINCIPLES OF ISLAM – AND THAT IS WHERE OUR ARGUMENT BEGAN…
ALTHOUGH SADR, A SHI’A MUSLIM AGREES WITH THE SHARIA POSITION; PARLIAMENT HAS AGREED TO NOT ALLOW THE VETO POWER AND THEY WAIT FOR THE VOTE…THAT IS WHY THE NATIONAL ALLIANCE DOES NOT WANT TO VOTE ON IT. ALLAWI HAS ONLY THREE CONDITIONS – ERBIL, THE AMNESTY OF PRISONERS AND THE FEDERAL COURT ACT THAT DOES NOT ALLOW FOR VETOS…

HAT TIP: The Currency News Hound


Hey Dinarian Friends!

We just saw this article and wanted to make sure you also saw it!

We feel the biggest key is not Talibani, but getting the 140 Oil and Gas Law passed!!!

This should give Shabibi the confidence he needs that his economy will grow strong!

This 140 however DOES NOT guarantee us the RV were waiting for, but we believe it’s a significant step forward!!!

Hurry Up and Wait — Current Situation with the RV + Analysis by MrIQD

UPDATE: July 2, 2012 –  Hello hello!  Well, as we said in this original post, we would not be surprised if Maliki would figure out a way to drag this out to early or mid July or beyond.  And, here we are now in to early July!

Are we “happy” it has not RV’d yet – heck NO, we would LOVE for it to have happened already by now!  We must remember that it won’t happen just because some hack guru says it will – this is a major event which depends on many small events to happen first! 

Do we feel we are “close” – yes, based on the events that are reported in legitimate Iraqi news sources, as well as legitimate International news services like Reuters, Wall Street Journal and others. 

Are we willing to buy a “reserve” based on our feelings – absolutely NO!!!  We don’t feel purchasing a “reserve” is ever a good idea.  If you feel you want more IQD, that is for only you to decide when you are ready, just keep in mind that we recommend you just purchase only what you can afford, if any at all!  🙂

The important thing we wish for you to remember is to stay away from hack gurus and their garbage of calling the RV every other week…

Well, in fact, as our new Category segment “This Day In RV History” illustrates bluntly, we feature hack gurus and THEIR WORDS, calling the RV…. But, a full YEAR AGO!!!  So, PLEASE TAKE A STAND, AND PLEASE STOP SUPPORTING THEM, DON’T GO TO THEIR WEBSITES, DON’T CLICK THEIR BANNER ADS, DON’T BUY THEIR CRAP!!!

How to Avoid a Wholesale Supplier Scam

HAT TIP:  SmallBizBee.com


May 1, 2012  by: Meghan Faye Wolff

If you’re an e-commerce merchant planning to re-sell tangible products, law requires you to have a supplier’s agreement. This is an agreement that states the terms and conditions between you and your wholesale supplier. However, if you’re a start-up e-commerce merchant or you’re thinking about selling products online, you need to be aware of the wholesale supplier scam.

What Is a Wholesale Supplier Scam?

Just like any other type of scam, a wholesale supplier scam comes in different shapes and sizes. The most important thing you need to know is that the scammer created their website to trick you into thinking they’re going to offer you a great deal on wholesale products. Here are the top three most common wholesale supplier scams.

1.       Replica Scam

Not all replica merchandise suppliers are trying to rip you off. However, there are several wholesale suppliers who claim they’re selling you an authentic product—Louis Vuitton handbags, Nike sneakers, Rolex watches—when it’s actually a replica. If you want to sell replica items, that’s fine, but make certain you’re advertising your goods as replicas to avoid any legal problems.

2.       Pay First Scam

You call your wholesale supplier and ask for a shipment of Dell laptops, but they claim they’re out of stock. Before they can re-order their stock of Dell laptops for you, they ask you to pay first. If you run into a situation like this, you should definitely err on the side of caution. While you feel like you can trust the company, this may be a wholesale supplier scam trying to swindle you out of your money without delivering the goods.

3.       Drop Ship Scam

It’s rare to find a wholesale supplier who will drop ship your products for you, but it’s not impossible. You find a supplier, receive a product sample of what you’ll be selling, and its quality is great. However, here’s where the scam kicks into play. When your supplier starts shipping items to your customers, the products they receive are of poor quality. As a merchant, you get stuck with a chargeback as well as having to pay your wholesale supplier for shipping your products.
Warning Signs of a Wholesale Supplier Scam

Spotting the warning signs of a wholesale supplier scam is easy, but takes a little investigative work. However, it’s worth the time and effort if you want to save your business money in the end. Warning signs… (to continue reading article, please visit origianl blog)

How Do Sellers Scam Their Customers?

HAT TIP:  WebUpOn


We know there is a lot of con jobs and scams going on in our Dinarian Community, therefore rather than continuously bang our drum against the several very obvious Hack Gurus out there that are obviously trying to get you to fall for one of their deals, we felt a more proactive approach may be better!

We are going to seek out and repost many articles like this one today in our “How To Avoid Investing Scams” located under our “ADVICE” Section. 

These articles will teach you to start looking for the “signs” of these con artists. 

This will help you to be better prepared for con artist that are currently not on our “Radar” or perhapes ever will be noticed, because that is just how good they really are!

You must be very paranoid about giving out your personal contact information to these blogs and hack gurus!  You must not trust them with the information of exactly how much Dinar you really own. 

Here is the truth, the amateurs are attacking this community right now, because frankly there is no “real” money – but, after the RV, hold on to your hat!!!  Because the real professionals will be out in full force figuring out how to take our money. 

These “pros” will be people like the con artist Marc Dreier – we posted on Friday who had a degree from Yale and a law degree from Harvard!!!  Marc was so good, he took Hedge Fund Managers for over $400 Million in one of his schemes!!!

Millions of people sell some goods every day. Sadly, not all of these sellers are trustworthy and they will often try to scam their unsuspecting customers. They can do this in many different ways and it is great to know at least the most frequented scams.

Do not think that you are safe just because you always shop at supermarkets and brand stores. You should never let your guard down. Otherwise the crooks of shopkeeper/vendor society will get to you sooner or later (probably sooner) and you can believe me that it will not be a pleasant surprise.

It is sad, but the ways in which you can be scammed are virtually limited only by seller’s imagination, greed and willingness to risk their own Continue reading
