Iraq Celebrating Christmas

An absolutely wonderful piece from World Threats. A Christmas Miracle!

Yes, Iraq, a thoroughly Muslim nation, is marking Christmas. This is the first Christmas celebration in the nation’s history and shows a clear contrast with Iraq’s recent history. Despite Saddam’s “secular” regime, such a celebration would have been unimaginable in 2002. Before the Surge, any similar event would have been shot or blown up. Something like this is a true show of solidarity, even if it was sponsored by the government.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
