Hello everyone!

I am a man from Iraq want to marry an american or canadian girl which knows english or spanish. I want the girl for a wife to stay with as long as I live and build a happy family with her and have children.

So, if anyone there, I am ready to talk to him and get to know each other better; and who knows perhaps this will change to a happy wedding. I would also like to tell you that am ready to relocate to anywhere my beloved woman wants. I am also ready to welcome here to my country to stay with my family ( parents, brother and sisters) to know me better and make her decision whether am suitable to be her husband or not.

Hey Tara,

The decision you are taking is really big. My mom married into a muslim family but luckily, my father was christian (but still had his muslim ideologies). I beg you do not make the mistake of marrying into a muslim family because only few muslim families accept non-muslim daughter in laws. Now that you are thinking about changing your religion for your man and you're not even yet married to him. Think about it, once you're married to him, they'll be a lot of things you'll have to change for him. Many of such marriages do not work out except the woman changes everything about herself for the man and his family. Islam is a very chauvinist religion. You are American and not bound by culture or tradition as my mother's people were and she still found it hard to be with my father. Their marriage did not work out. I beg you to please consider what you are getting yourself into. If you really feel this is what you want to do, prepare yourself for a life of inadequacies and the religious strain of being muslim. My mother has begged me never to make that mistake, I beg you not to either.

I can answer questions on Arab culture, including differences in cultures among Arab countries and sub-groups. I can also answer questions on Christian-Muslim relations, interfaith issues in general, and human rights and peacemaking issues in the Middle East.


I was a human rights worker for four years in the Middle East, and have spent time in Palestine, Israel, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan. I speak intermediate Arabic; some Hebrew; and am starting Persian (Farsi, Dari). I have led a half-dozen educational delegations to the area for North American groups; and I have led trainings for nearly a thousand international human rights volunteers coming into the area over my years there. I am now working to launch an interfaith peace-teams based human rights organization, hopefully in the next two years. I am also currently editing the manuscript for my first book, a firsthand account of my time in the Middle East

"Be the Healers," (next steps after Abu Ghraib) The Lutheran magazine, July 2004. Multiple press releases which I wrote from the field, as well as media interviews/articles about my work are also available via Google search.
