An evening full of Thanks­giv­ing to the Americans and Kur­dis­ta­nis by AKFA

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

In the evening of Nov 27, 2014 in Kur­dis­tan Re­gion’s cap­i­tal Hawler, the Armer­i­can Kur­dis­tan Friend­ship As­so­ci­a­tion, like the pre­vi­ous years, threw a party for the Americans and Kur­dis­ta­nis. Harry Schute, the Deputy Chair­man of AKFA gave a speech on be­half of the As­so­ci­a­tion and shed light on the sig­nif­i­cance of this day for Amer­i­can cit­i­zens. He talked about the role Kur­dis­tan Re­gion is play­ing in pre­par­ing the ground for Amer­i­can cit­i­zens and friends to cel- ebrate Thanks­giv­ing ev­ery year.

Then Gov­er­nor of Hawler, Nawzad Hadi de­liv­ered a speech and talked about the sit­u­a­tion in Kur­dis­tan and ap­pre­ci­ated the role of the Chair­man of the As­so­ci­a­tion, Sir­wan Barzani, who’s now serv­ing as a Pesh­merge in Gwer and Makhmour. Barzani an­nu­ally pre­sides over the cel­e­bra­tion.

The US Con­sule to Kur­dis­tan Re­gion also gave a speech, talk­ing about the vic­to­ries of Kur­dis­tan in the war against ISIS and con­grat­u­lated the dants.

Thanks­giv­ing is a happy day for Americans. The fam­i­lies usu­ally gather to­gether and pre­pare a spe­cial din­ner. What’s spe­cial about this din­ner is the roasted turkey as a sym­bol of sat­is­fy­ing one's hunger and avoid­ance of catas­tro­phes as a re­sult of the tough con­fronta­tion of peo­ple with life and na­ture.

The cel­e­bra­tion was at­tended by num­bers of Pesh­merge and US sol­diers, as two strong al­lies.
