between Fallujah and Ramadi, Iraqis escape country's woes at lake resort

"I come here every week with my family and friends to escape from the daily problems like unemployment... politics and sectarianism," said Abdul Rahman Mohammed, 25, an unemployed university graduate.

"When we see the Iraqis here, they are not Sunni, or Shia, Kurd or Christian, and they have smiles on their faces, we forget everything else," said Mohammed, who holds a bachelor's degree in administration and economics.

His brother, 29-year-old Abdul Qader, who has a degree in history and is also unemployed, said European tourists should "come here to see the real Iraq."
