Eid al-Fitr Around the World 1  Part 2 Part 3

"Muslims across the globe bid farewell to the holy month of Ramadan and welcomes Eid al-Fitr, a three-day holiday (in some countries) that marks the end of the month of fasting. Family and friends spend time together to celebrate. Exchanging good wishes and sometimes gifts to one another. An important part of Eid Al-Fitr is performing acts of charity. Charity, often in money and food, are donated to help the needy. Eid al-Fitr is a time to celebrate the good things in life, give thanks for all the blessings you have ,and try to show a common goal of unity .Observant Muslims  start the day of festivities by praying a special Eid prayer often performed in a mosque or communal grounds. Usually people put on their best clothes often purchased just for the occasion. They visit loved ones, have a feast, and pay their respects to the deceased in cemeteries. Homes are decorated and filled with sweets. Children receive gifts, candy, or money from their elders. Meals during the festivities and traditions of celebration vary by country.

Israel’s genocide of Palestinians continues in Gaza having killed over 1,032 - including 219 children - in its latest assault and racist Israelis are out in the streets chanting “School is out in Gaza - They have no children left there”

There’s no way in hell this will be shown on TV or any mainstream news website so make sure you share and reblog.

They’re also singing, “I hate all Arabs,” and “The Gaza Strip is a cemetery.” And they say something about an Arab politician whose children they hope die next. It’s clearly a rehearsed chant, or a chant everyone has sung many times because they all know the words.
