A Palestinian wedding in Sweden



This wonderful photo was sent to me by a friend, who attended this beautiful wedding of Kholod, 21, and Mohamed, 24. It captures the great atmosphere of a palestinian wedding. Happy saghrouting clapping audience, a proud bridegroome, a beautiful bride in white, and last but not least, a big old videocamera in their face.
My friend said to make sure I wrote that there was so much love in the air.

Hi Imaan.. nice to spread the love!

I've never been to a wedding in Sweden, and mine seems to be consisting of a low profile saturday ceremon at Radhuset.. until we go to jordan for the bigger part with my girlfriends sister and her girlfriend.

I like the snowflake photo you have. in fact I have a tattoo on my left shoulder that looks exactly like that flake - a souvineer for all the experiences I have had in Sweden so far!

I wish I could make it to the protest, but am too busy with my thesis work and dont have much money for travelling at this point. but I will make sure to report on any development with him.

My regards to the family!

I am sure that most of you know about the struggle of Manal and Nour, the mother and child being held in a Israeli prison.

The following is a poem I wrote about this issue please share it with everyone you know:

Salam Rami,

I too had that low profile wedding at Rådhuset. But it is a very beautiful place, so just invite some good friends (of course somebody with saghrouting competence!), dress up and bring a camera and somebody beside youself to take the photos - it will sure be a nice memory. And then u have the Jordan party to look forward to! Good luck and MABRUK!!

Och till min arabiska sötnos - SHUKRAN! Det var din förtjänst!
