For my money he should win every award for foreign affairs reporting going.

I wish them all well. And Hugh too.

As a historian, Sharma must be aware of Islamic buildings erected to assert domination - not least the Dome of the Rock on the site of the former Jewish Temple. All over Egypt, the mosques have been built higher than adjacent Coptic churches and not so long ago, an attempt was made to do the same thing in Nazareth.The Islamic strategy to take over the USA, Europe and the UK, has been identified and documented. In France, the implementation is well advanced, and in the UK, the Muslim immigrant birth rate is already distorting our demographics. The BBC should take no part in the Muslim strategy to paint themselves as a disadvantaged minority, which they will continue to do until they have gained significant political power while liberal politicians stand and watch - in denial of their strategy. The USA constitution was certainly not drafted with foreknowledge of the threat of immigrants who are planning to impose their mediaeval religous precepts on the nation.

I've been an in-patient a few times, in single-sex wards, but since visitors are often around from around 12 noon to 8pm there are often people of the opposite sex and children in the ward when one is having intimate nursing attendance or one has to cross the ward to go to the toilet.

How lovely to meet him again, and in such a positive way.It is indeed uplifting to have these 'positive' views from Iraq (though I fear there is still much going on that is very negative). Thank you, yet again, for sharing this, and my very best wishes to the National Youth Orchestra of Iraq.*Sah-e-shoma kam na Shoddid (A farsi blessing taught to me by Hugh Sykes)[*a perfect illustration of how the British Council can be a force for good] Mon 16 Aug 2010 12:34:20 GMT+1 Phil Burt http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2010/08/hugh_in_iraq_5.shtml?page=0#comment0 Uplifting report, Hugh.
