Abundantly Blessed: Question for anyone. Isn’t EID in July??? Doesn’t gel in my pea brain for reassurances to the people for something that is 8-9 months away if we are in fact “very close”. Or is there a different EID that I don’t know about? Appreciate any ones thoughts.
7-FA: Frank said on the call that Iraq has several Eid’s during the year…. Hope this helps.
Lexi: Think he also said he believes there are 2 more before the end of the year
LCM: Eid is Arabic meaning “feast, festival, holiday.”
Which by itself is different than, Eid al-Adha “Festival of the Sacrifice”),
and Eid al-Fitr, which is on the first day of the Islamic month of Shawwal.
Think of you saying “So what are you doing for the Holiday?”
We know which one you are talking about since you would say that just before the next one coming up, NOT for a EID (holiday) coming 10 months from now. Hope this help Family,
Blinkster: lcm- you make a great point. WIth that in mind, the last four holidays LISTED of 2015 for Iraq are these (please read below these four):
Dec 22 Tuesday December Solstice -Season
Dec 24 Thursday The Prophet’s Birthday -National holiday
Dec 25 Friday Christmas Day -National holiday
Now in the spirit of what lcm brought to the table (see post #58 above), this forthcoming “EID” (that Abadi spoke of to the Iraqi people in the Mosques via TV according to Frank), IMO can truly (and will likely) be a formerly unscheduled “holiday” that the Iraq Govt suddenly proclaims as one.
And we have seen that done many times already. (edit) in all fairness, according to what lcm shared, any of the above four holidays left for 2015 could also qualify.
Get ready Get ready Get ready!!!
AbundantlyBlessed: A NOVEMBER TO REMEMBER. I love how that rhymes and sounds so romantic. Need to make a movie or maybe write a book with that title. Don’t mind me…just talking to myself. Thank you Frank!!!
Aggiedad77: Good Morning Family…..I’m still rubbing the sleep out of my eyes as I read through your excellent analysis of Eid and upcoming holidays in Iraq after you heard Frank mention that last night…..could it be that PM Abadi is planning…..and “Eid” like holiday in remembrance of Chalabi in the near future….as someone said…..they can decide to shut things down for the smallest of reasons it seems when they have the desire to do so.

November 4, 2015
Denied the Iraqi Central Bank, on Wednesday, reports that indicated to stop pumping money to him from his accounts in US Federal.
The bank said in a statement seen by the agency, “our economy,” the news. “The news reported by some newspapers and news sites on the stop pumping money from his accounts to him by the US Federal baseless”
The bank said that “the US Federal continuously conducting all events of accounts being the only one responsible for it.”
The Allowal Street Journal reported on Tuesday that the Federal Central Bank and the US Treasury cut off the flow of American cash to the Iraqi Central Bank this summer account, because of fears of money in Iranian banks or in the hands of Daash, to resume transfers only after the approval of Iraqi officials to impose strict controls on the dollar coin distribution.
