Jews, Mozlems and Kurds meet.

From here.
"Writer, poet, polymath, civil servant, historian - the late Meir Basri excelled in many fields, and would have been appointed as Iraq's second Jewish finance minister in 1948 had the first Arab-Israeli war not broken out. In his memory, Arabs and Jews of Iraq are building bridges.

The publication of a biography of the late Meir Basri in Baghdad has prompted a number of Jewish and Muslim Iraqis to initiate a cultural forum called the 'Meir Basri Forum for Knowledge'. The forum organised a book launch after receiving copies from Baghdad. The evening was held in Arabic and was attended by around 80 Iraqis - Jews, Muslims and Kurds."
