Stirring memories of a bygone era
By Magdi Abdelhadi BBC Arab affairs analyst

Mr Jabr waved foreign passports to justify detention policiesThe Iraqi Interior Minister, Bayan Jabr, has played down the scale of abuse in a detention centre run by his ministry.
At a news conference in Baghdad, Mr Jabr disputed reports that 170 detainees were mistreated at the compound and said there had been only a few cases.
Flanked by his top security officers from the ministry, Mr Jabr was very defensive.
He accused the media and his critics of blowing things out of proportion.
