I pray and hope, for us to see the National Meeting for Reconciliation and Unification finally held towards the end of the coming week, thereafter , rapid movement towards announcement of the completion of the GOI, in time for the celebration of Eid al-Fitr ( Sunday-Thursday ).....
With all the sense of urgency manifested lately by all parties.......IMHO A perfect setting for the RV !
Well SB...I could not agree with you more. However, there has been a sense of urgency for the last three going on four years that I'm aware of. The only time I saw that sense of urgency stop was when I quit looking at it. May you be the one that hits the nail on the head.
Your observations/ comments regarding " sense of urgency " is spot on..... the key word IMHO this time around is " all parties " ( or maybe almost all parties)and also the number of articles portraying batteries of meetings to actually pass innumerable relevant laws despite many being on" vacations " and the country in the midst religious holidays. ( we have seen this before too)...hehehe

BTW, there is an interesting article ....Municipality of Baghdad: Preparation of a special plan Eid al-Fitr ( sorry no link was provided). Not so much in the realm of sense urgency but rather there appears to be a " special " organized effort not only to do spring cleaning following Ramadan and but also show case to the various parties, what pleasures lies ahead......
Again, thanks for the affirmations.. may we all Dinarians be blessed as IRAQ joyfully celebrate their 5 DAY HOLIDAYS .....
What is.......Eid al-Fitr ..... SHABS....hmmmmmmmmmm 5 days ! ! !
Ramadan ends with the festival of Eid al-Fitr, which in 2012 occurs on Aug. 19. Literally the "Festival of Breaking the Fast," Eid al-Fitr is one of the two most important Islamic celebrations (the other occurs after the Hajj, or pilgrimage to Mecca). At Eid al-Fitr people dress in their finest clothes, adorn their homes with lights and decorations, give treats to children, and enjoy visits with friends and family.
A sense of generosity and gratitude colors these festivities. Although charity and good deeds are always important in Islam, they have special significance at the end of Ramadan. As the month draws to a close, Muslims are obligated to share their blessings by feeding the poor and making contributions to mosques.
