I don’t want to pretend like I’m religious when I’m not, but out of respect for my heritage (Islam was one aspect amongst many of my upbringing) and for friends that are observing this holy month, Ramadhan kareem. Enjoy the blog’s header.
As for the Middle East, I’m sorry to say, but this is going to be the bloodiest Ramadhan since the Ramadhan’s of the Iraq War. The intense fighting in Damascus and the consequent destablization of Lebanon are all part of it. Brace yourselves.
