Acting Consul General Dorothy Shea Sends Eid el Fitr Greetings to Muslims in Jerusalem, the West Bank, and Gaza Strip

On behalf of the American Consulate General community and the American people, I wish to extend my warmest wishes to the Palestinians in Jerusalem, the West Bank, and Gaza Strip who are celebrating Eid-Al-Fitr.

During the past month, I had the privilege of joining Palestinian young people, families, and friends to break the fast, a tradition that reminds us to be grateful for our blessings and demonstrate goodwill to our neighbors.

This spirit of togetherness that I have encountered in the past weeks is illustrative of the compassion and common humanity that the holy month of Ramadan represents.

May the blessings of this special time be with you as you celebrate this joyous day. Eid Mubarak.
