It snowed in Baghdad yesterday, for the first time in memory, and the Al-Hayat reporter noticed something remarkable. It didn't just snow in Sunni areas, and it didn't just snow in Shiite areas. And it didn't just snow on the Green Zone, or on all sectors except the Green Zone. It snowed everywhere. "General Snow", people said, brought the city together. In case you thought five years of occupation and sectarianism had erased the idea of unity from people's minds.
