Happy Eid al-Adha

Best wishes to all those celebrating.

In London I don't see people with their sheep; but where I do, it always reminds me of how similar Muslims are to Jews, and how we should work more towards understanding this. The eidi I am normally offered is baklava from Syria, which was impossible whilst the horrific civil war is ongoing there.

I do not moderate comments, but I remove spam, overt self-promotion ("read [link] my much better post on this") and what I consider hate speech (racism, homophobia etc).
