Ramadhan end and Eid Mubarak
The month of Ramadhan is finished and Eid Al-Fitr starts on Monday for some Islamic states like Saudi Arabia and on Tuesday or Wednesday for others depending on the first visual inspection of the moon.
In Iraq the month of Ramadhan was no difference from before. Indeed it was one of the worst months for the attacks and lack of security. Thousands of Iraqi civilians have been killed and others wounded or kidnapped or expelled from their homes during this month.
Last Saturday some of the Muslims clergy men from both Sunni and Shiite groups in Iraq signed a document (Fatwa) in the holy city of Makkah. The document is from 10 points calling for peace, forbidding of killing and expulsion, and ending all means of violence. This is an important step to stop violence however it needs implementation on the ground from the Iraqi government which showed quite considerable weakness until now.
We wish you very pleasant Eid and hope that this will be the beginning of the end for the long lasted suffering of the Iraqi people.
