  We pray every morning for the Iraqi people

Khalil lives in Amman, Jordan.

In his report about the war with Iraq he tells us how they are trying to help Iraqi children.

"Here in Jordan we feel very sad for the Iraqi people.

There have been some peaceful demonstrations in protest about the war - I went on one with my school.

We want British and American troops to leave Iraq.

Effect on Middle East

I think 99% of Jordanians are against the war and we don't agree with one country invading another.

We are all afraid this will have a bad impact in the Middle East.

We've been talking a lot about the war at school.

And we've been asking our teachers many questions: "Why?", "When is the war going to stop?" and many questions about the United Nations.

We also want to know if Iraqi children are still able to go to school.

We've started to organise some assistance for them, books, pens, pencils and little presents.

Every day before our school lessons start we pray, Christians and Muslims together, for peace in Iraq and for the victims of the war.

War on TV

Even though our country is very close to Iraq we are not worried about ourselves, we are only thinking about the Iraqi people.

We are trying to get on with daily life as normal but it's difficult when we are seeing so much of the war on TV. It's very sad.

I am just hoping and praying that the war ends soon."
