My wish to all true believers in the central message of your faiths. From the writings of the founder of the Bahai Faith, Baha'u'llah;2. O SON OF SPIRIT!The best beloved of all things in My sight is Justice; turn not away therefrom if thou desirest Me, and neglect it not that I may confide in thee. By its aid thou shalt see with thine own eyes and not through the eyes of others, and shalt know of thine own knowledge and not through the knowledge of thy neighbor. Ponder this in thy heart; how it behooveth thee to be. Verily justice is My gift to thee and the sign of My loving-kindness. Set it then before thine eyes. Hidden Wordsthe Arabic partEdo River rising

Me, I'm stuck in my room on campus alone with nothing to do and no people to see! It's miserable, I know, but what to do! Did you finish your first semester or yet?Happy Holidays to all, may peace prevail on our country and all over the world :)

Merry Christmas and Happy Eid Al-Adha Treasure...May the Lord watch over you always.Marsh
Thank you for the kind wishes, Treasure. I sincerely hope you and your family have a happy 2007.
Happy Eid and New Year Treasure! May this year bring better tidings. You are making a difference, and that was abundantly clear in my students' papers. You have changed many, many of their minds about the war. "Better to light a candle than curse the darkness." And you have lit that candle for us.
Thanks guys a lot for your prayers for Iraq. I hope the day when I write about my country’s peace come and those who love peace enjoy the celebrations together with us.
Hi A&Eiraqi,Thanks for the nice words. I am trying to enjoy the holidays but how can I do that by the time Iraqis are still dying and suffering in dozens? Where can I bring the feeling of peace from by the time I know my family is suffering there? So, you are studying? Is it a master’s degree? I wish you all success, my friend.
Morbido!!!!Thank God you are out of the cage! Yeaaaaaaaaaah! I thought you disappeared. How have you been. You were not in touch for a long time!!! No emails, no calls, no nothing! I am sorry to hear that My first semester is over. I got very good grades! I hope the next semester be the same although the courses I took are far more difficult than the ones I took in the fall. I am in Washington DC now with Omar visiting some old friends in the city.
Hi Summer,Welcome into the Treasure of Baghdad. Thanks for your nice words. I am glad you found my blog through Nabil’s. He is such a great writer. I wish I could do something to make him come and study in the United States like what I am doing. Unfortunately, he writes in Arabic which we don’t have in the master’s program I am taking. It is really an honor having you read my blog. I’ve been blogging from my beloved Baghdad since August 2005. You can go to the archives and read what I worte but I don’t promise what you are going to read is pleasant. It is heartbreaking. I read your blog. It is really nice. I loved how you quoted Khalil Gibran. What a wonderful writer! Thanks again for your nice words. Thanks guys a lot for your prayers for Iraq. I hope the day when I write about my country’s peace come and those who love peace enjoy the celebrations together with us.
Hi BTyes, you're right, how to enjoy while they're suffering, sometimes I feel that to suffer is something linked to us wherever we are.Let's hope it will be better all what we have is the hope .I'm studying to pass Plab1 testto be qualified to work here as a doctor and then I'll think about the degree.Regards

"Philadelphia's 2006 homicide total was 403 as of Wednesday, the first time the number has topped 400 in nearly a decade. There were 380 killings in all of 2005."Well, Treasure. Philly may not equal Baghdad, but it can be a temporary home. BTW, in case you're interested there were 73 homicides in all of Japan a few years ago
