“In Gaza everyone knows each other. In the morning it takes people forever to get to work and not because of traffic, No…Because you have to say hello
– Salam-Alaikom – to everyone you know.
A good morning greeting (Sabahu Al-khair) soon develops to a discussion about how’s everyone in your family doing.
When planning your day, consider 2 minutes for each family member and you’ll be on time.”
