Reviving Mosul: Muslims and Christians work together to rebuild the Iraqi city
Quote
More than three years after the devastating battle to reclaim Mosul, from the group calling itself the Islamic State, its old city still lies in ruins.

A project with the title “reviving the spirit of Mosul” has hired locals of all faiths to work together to rebuild the landmark al-Nuri mosque, and the historic al-Saa'a and al-Tahera churches.

Pope Francis plans to visit all three sites during his much anticipated Papal visit to Iraq in March, but he has recently cast doubt on the trip, raising concerns over gatherings of people during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Nationalism like it should be.

Awesome! This is how folkish integration is supposed to work: instead of non-Westerners adopting (inferior) Western customs and styles, they instead support their compatriots in reviving their own (superior) non-Western, pre-colonial era culture, uniting with them behind shared nationalist and anti-colonialist ideals.

Ukrainian Muslims similarly dress in 'Vyshyvanky' (embroidered shirts that are a part of Ukrainian national clothing, iconic to the point of being a national symbol):

In fact, Said Ismahilov, their most recognizable community leader, wears them so frequently, it's actually hard to imagine him without:

Ukrainian Muslims could start incorporating Islamic motifs into their embroidery, further cementing the point that Islam and its adherents are an integral part of the Ukrainian nation and at the same time further contributing to the popularization of Ukrainian dress over Western dress.
