Talal Abu-Ghazaleh, chairman and founder of the international Jordan-based organization, the Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Organization addressed a letter to Prime Minister Omar Razzaz, opposing the government's decision on Eid Al Adha holiday, which is scheduled to be as of Saturday, August 10, until Wednesday, August 14.

In the letter, Abu Ghazaleh said that three days of holiday would be enough.

"With full respect, I reviewed your announcement regarding the Eid Al Adha break. However, I think if the break was for three days instead of four, it would be enough," the letter read.

Abu-Ghazaleh explained that the holiday will be actually for six days as Fridays and Saturdays are included, which means that all businesses will be closed those days and Jordan will have no communication with the world for four days.
