You asked were I was born, I was born in Lebanon. Moved to Syria at the age of 11 father was looking for work. Moved to Saudi at age 14 father worked in the oil field. At 19 I attended university in Iraq. At 24 I took a teaching position in Turkey. At 28 I took a teaching position in Iran (we we still calling it Persia for some ) I remained there until my grandmother requested my assistance at the age of 38. During those years, I spent many happy holiday with friends from university in Israel, Dubai, and Indonesia. I had many friends of all religions and sadly most have passed. But our different beliefs never really played any role in our friendships. I suppose I am just an old fool for thinking this could be how it should be for all.
