The Iraqi Orphan – BBC News


For a short time in the early 1990s, Amar Kanim was famous.
His scarred face and desperate story featured on newspaper front pages around the world. He was introduced to diplomats and ambassadors. He even attended a session of the United Nations.
He was known as the little boy who had lost everything in a napalm attack. He came to personify the suffering of the Iraqi people at the hands of their own president.

Amar was brought to the UK from Iraq three decades ago, an orphaned child with terrible burns from a napalm attack by Saddam Hussein’s forces. His cause was taken up by an MP and his treatment and recovery in hospital were followed closely by the world’s media. When the spotlight faded he settled into a quiet life without his family in Devon, but then years later receives a mysterious message from a stranger, saying his mother is looking for him. Jon Kay follows Amar’s journey for Panorama as he returns to Iraq for the first time in 30 years. Is it a case of mistaken identity – or can they find Amar’s family?

  1. Manufactured artificial schizophrenia inflicted on a human being against their will is a human rights crime and torture.Frequencies full of hypnotic suggestions over YouTube without consent and telephones in the railway telephones to target a living human being against their will.The television industry must as a group face court action for this Its not never a joke.Organised theft of a human life.

  2. Clinton =Taliban
    Bush = al Kaida
    Obama = ISIS
    Trump = Venezuela-Iran
    Trump = Rassist

    Zionisten Stadt Israel 🖕🏼🖕🏼🖕🏼

  3. BBC just goes around and lies to everyone like the pathetic slime they are.. did you see them interview Ben Shapiro? They threw lies at his face and celebrated when he left.. now that's uneducated.

  4. The most persecuted people are the Iraqi people, the Iraqi government, which is preoccupied with stealing citizens' money and money
    Mr. Trump, I wish the occupation of Iraq. We, the Iraqi people, will help you in the occupation, provided that changing the situation in Iraq, like Newark, creates jobs and a decent life for the people without killing innocent people. Achieve our request and Iraq to you full.
    I hope that my message will reach Mr. Donald Trump😊

  5. Quran 5:51 O you who believe! Do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies; some of them are allies of one another. Whoever of you allies himself with them is one of them. Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people.

  6. “Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger as saying: Do not greet the Jews and the Christians before they greet you and when you meet any one of them on the roads force him to go to the narrowest part of it.” (Sahih Muslim Book 26, Hadith 5389.

  7. اني لو بمكان امه واعرف هيج وحدة ربت ابني هيج تربيه واعتنت بيه احسن اعتناء وصار هيج رجال والله اجي ابوس ايدها ورجلها والله

  8. No doubt, this is personally touching story. But let me ask, who started the invasion to Iraq under false evidences? As a result were killed about million people. How many Iraqi citizens have lost their relatives and were left disabled? And now BBC that lied to the whole world about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, providing fake-news support to US and UK government, shows us such films? It’s shame!

  9. Raised the money? She's a politician. She makes more in one month than all the surgeries combined. It's easy to be a humanitarian with others money. I'm curious, did she even pay for her flight there? Did she pay for a single meal? Why doesn't she enjoy him as a ground keeper or a butler if she cares so much? So sick of these bs pity party crap. I'll never donate a single penny to any charity ever. Even non profits rob the pot.

  10. Odd to think about the link between these 2 countries. Some people do and some people don't probably. This guy could see it through his experiences, so could the woman politician who brought him here.

  11. The BBC should be ashamed 🤔
    it helps to start dumb wars and than makes documentary about their suffering
    Sadly all Bombs are incendiary and all Bombs can cause Burns

  12. Funny how these 'nobodies' always get massive public platforms, yet when we want to get a message out we are silenced.
    Always question why certain people get to spread a message and who they are really speaking for.

  13. I'm incredibly sorry for what happened to you you belong here and I'm sure your adoptive family love you why else would she raise money to bring you hear I'm sure you suffer a great deal of trauma as a result of the attack. Love and peace to you

  14. There is a morbid irony here. The British helped to kill over 600.000 Iraqis in their illegal war there and now they're trying to wash their sins away with stories like this.. Its a sobering measure of what a godless race of conceited moral degenerates they have become. Still, we can be relieved that their muslim populations will have bred them out of their own lands by the end of the Century. Justice will have been served, if a little late.

  15. It would be quite nice if our state broadcaster would focus on something a bit closer to home like how increasing energy prices due to carbon hysteria effect the poorest and most vulnerable in our country, or perhaps the industrial waste of money by our public services, corruption in the EU, Where does UK tariff money currently go and how much ….. whilst this story is a bit of a tear jerker there are more pressing and important stories ….. but we all know why the BBC are broadcasting this type of thing and that is to try and soften attitudes toward migrants from this area of the world by using emotion to blur the lines between genuine refugee and illegal migrant …. Everything in this propaganda piece is carefully chosen from the music to the story to tug at peoples emotions ….. as we'd expect from the BBC propaganda machine …. as they ignore major issues at home such as immigrant crime levels, illegal immigrant numbers and how many we actually deport, how the ECHR meddles in deportation and intimidates nation governments in to ultra liberal positions …. as well as demonising those who actually want simple things like borders that work and to focus a little more on matters UK … I celebrate managed and carefully selected migration and yes I support genuine refugees …. but not propaganda with the clear purpose of tugging on your heartstrings to suit a liberal agenda …..
