Eid al Adha Greeting from Ambassador Walles
October 25, 2012
On behalf of the American people and the government of the United States of America, I would like to wish the people of Tunisia a blessed and peaceful Eid al Adha. I hope the holiday is filled with spiritual reflection, meals shared together with families and friends, and generous charity.
During this year’s Eid al Adha holiday, over 10,000 Tunisians will be joining their fellow Muslims from nations all over the world, including Muslims from the United States, to undertake the sacred journey to Mecca. Performing the Hajj and fulfilling this sacred, basic tenet of Islam is the pinnacle of spiritual fulfillment for Muslims from around the world, and I would like to congratulate all of the Tunisians who are undertaking this profound and important spiritual journey this year.
