Hi Namo: Thanks for leaving me a comment. I am originally from the States but am currentely living in Sweden as a permanent resident, and soon I will hold dual citizenship. In addition to working in the conflict field, I am also attending Swedish language classes. I was surprised to find that I share a classroom with so many Iraqi refugees who had to flee the country in these past painful years. It's an interesting situation for me---sitting there as a U.S. citizen and a very sore symbol of the very reason why they have lost their homes, families and country. I have been very warmly embraced by the women, both older and younger, although none of them speaks English, and we don't know enough Swedish yet to really converse. Some of the men smile politely; another looks at me disdainfully. Again, with the men, we have no common language (yet). But then there's another man, named Hamed, who is very fluent in English and with whom I have begun to talk to. After a day or two I had to ask him straight away how he felt about Bush, Americans in general, and sharing a classroom with ME. He hates Bush, but then again, he says, he hates all governments. He has no grudge against the American people and he seems to like me---We talk; we smile; we joke-- all with soft eyes. But Namo! My heart goes out to your fellow countrymen and women here--- and while Sweden may be a perfectly lovely, wonderful and safe country to be in right now, I know it is not the same as being in one's own country, in one's own home, living amongst one's own family and friends. As we go along, I hope to get to know them all better, and hope that in some small way I can ease this horrendous life trauma that has been visited upon them.
Hi Namo, thank you for your invitation. I hope to have the chance to speak to you soon. I am very interested in the situation of Kurdish people, in Iraq as well as in Turkey. Maybe you find the time to write me.
