A surprise from Iraq.

I woke up to find a comment from Khalid Jarrar, an Iraqi who is probably best known as the brother of Raed Jarrar, the friend of Salam Pax, and the individual whom he named his journal after. (Khalid's mother keeps a wonderful online journal too, btw. The latest entries are in Arabic, but they get regularly translated into English... just scroll down.)

Khalid's journal reflects a conflict between appreciation of a common humanity and anger against those responsible for the pain his country is going through... which I think is appropriate really. Read deeply and decide for yourself.
