The Glorious Holy Month of Ramadan is coming to an end… ushering in the wonderful feast days of Eid-el-Fitr. A time for joyous celebrations with families, a time to feel completely renewed and refreshed.
That’s how it’s spelled out in the books…
Unfortunately in Palestine the book is written differently… families are divided, family members are denied entry to join in the celebrations, families are mourning their loved ones killed by Israeli forces.
It’s time for all to celebrate! It’s time for all families to be together!
Damn those that won’t let this be!!
Let us hope that soon the situation will be different and we can all be together… secure in our own Homeland…. secure with a Right of Return… and THE RIGHT TO STAY!
In the meantime…. EL-EID-MUBARAK!!! Make the best of it and try to enjoy.
Never give up the dream and hope that all will be good one day… Click HERE for some wonderful inspiration from the Beatles.

    Ramadan is all about what religion should be, unity and understanding. “Let it Be” underscores this message. The line from the song that moves me is, “When the night is cloudy, there is still a light that shines on me…” It is comforting to know there is a light waiting to shine once the clouds of our collective madness lift.

    Thanks for visiting Case… and for your comment. I quoted one of your letters to Bush the other day in a post that I ‘borrowed’ from the Poetry Man…

    With relative luxury in the US compared to our homeland’s people, I would find it so very hard to have to explain to young children why there are no gifts, no special foods or grinning faces and smiles at this special time at the end of Ramadan when abject poverty and fear rule in Palestine today. As a Christian, may our one God bless those families who mourn the loss of a family member and whose children go to bed hungry and in fear. Ramadan Kareem and Peace upon all.
