An Iraqi Christian journalist sent me this message this morning:
Forcing all of us to be Muslim for a month
I live in Iraq. Our prime minister has ordered the closure of all liquor stores in the month of Ramadan.
As if that’s not bad enough, he has ordered all restaurants to be closed during the day. In his official letter he states: “The sale of breakfast and lunch (in the month of Ramadan) is strictly prohibited and actions will be taken against offenders.”
As if there aren’t any Christians in the country, or any Muslims who don’t feel like being religious and fasting for a month.
