WSJ: Kurdistan, Safe Haven for Iraqi Students and Professors

The Wall Street Journal publishes a report on the situation of Iraqi students running from war. The report calls Kurdistan a "new educational oasis... for Iraq's best and the brightest" for all the security and educational help it has offered to the Iraqi students from the war zones.

Leylan Amir, an AUIS student, is quoted in the report as saying, "I never expected to be here {Kurdistan}. It was a sudden decision to com."

She also doesn't want to go back to Baghdad.

"I can't picture myself going back to Baghdad. I don't see any bright future there," she said.

Dr. Athanasios Moulakis has told Brooke Anderson, Wall Street Journal's reporter, that he and his collegaues need visas to go to the southern part of Iraq. He also wishes that they can open new branches in Mosul, Baghdad and Basra.
