Egypt sends weapons through Israel

With the blessing of Israel:

JERUSALEM - Egypt has sent a large shipment of weapons through Israeli territory to shore up forces loyal to the embattled Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, Israeli security officials said Thursday — an extraordinary show of support by both countries for his efforts to renew peacemaking with Israel.

The Haaretz daily meanwhile reported that "a load of 2,000 Kalashnikov AK-47 assault rifles as well as 20,000 cartridge clips and two million bullets were transferred to Fatah's armed groups in the Gaza Strip, in coordination with the Israeli army."
The paper said the arms had been transported by a convoy of four trucks from Egypt into Israel vie the Kerem Shalom crossing point to the south of the Gaza Strip, and had then been taken to the Karni crossing further north where they were received by Palestinian Authority security services loyal to Abbas.

So we have arms from Egypt to Fatah on the surface in a convoy of trucks and we have arms going from Egypt to Hamas through tunnels.
And we have a conflict between Fatah and Hamas! I think it is safe to predict that the weapon dealing business in Egypt is about to flourish.
Hell it should at least be good for the economy.


No veils in shops, say Pune jewellers

Why? Well women were using burqa as cover to steal jewellery:

Pune: Pune's jewellery shops are becoming off-limits for burqa-clad customers in the New Year.
The Jeweller's Association has decided to debar them from the shops as even tight security, including use of close circuit cameras, failed to stop a rise in thefts. The association says only those who don't cover their faces can shop for jewellery.

And it really worked:

But police says jewellery shop thefts have gone down drastically in Pune. As against 39 cases last year, only 25 jewellery shop thefts were reported this year. Burqa-clad women were involved in not more than five of them. Yet, police says it won't intervene.

And sure enough Muslim women were not happy about this:

Meanwhile, Muslim women, not surprisingly, are expressing outrage at the move of the jewelers.
Making out a single solution or pointing out fingers at some people is not right. There are surely other solutions - like they have CCTVs. They can have more people to look after burqa-clad people. They can't ask us to remove are veil if we are comfortable with it,‌ says a resident of Pune, Muntaha Khan.

BTW Pune is in India where 35% of the population are Muslims.

Sinai is not part of Egypt!

So first we have MPs in the Egyptian Parliament claiming Eilat is part of Egypt.
And now this article is claiming that the whole of Sinai was never part of Egypt anyway:

The Egyptians who raise the matter of Eilat are skating on thin ice. For the Sinai, which Egypt has convinced the world is historically part of its domain, was always a corpus separatum.

How many of you have ever seen the map, reproduced in the Diaries of Colonel Meinertzhagen, that show how much of the Sinai became Egyptian only in the 1920s? Egypt had no historic or legal title to the Sinai except that provided by Great Britain. Britain was perfectly willing to diminish unilaterally the territory intended for the Mandate for Palestine by lopping off all of historic Palestine east of the river Jordan. It was also perfectly willing to curry favor with Egypt, at the very moment when the British who had come under Lord Cromer to improve the civil service were leaving, by handing over the Sinai to an Egypt that had never before been thought entitled to it.

So why did the Israelis hand back Sinai after the camp David treaty? ahh well they were so helpless and Naive and could not resist the immense pressure put by Jimmy Carter (who by the way turned out to be antisemitic!!)

This was not an argument that was made by the Israelis at Camp David. They were beaten about by Jimmy Carter, who was the same Carter then as he his now. At the time, however, all kinds of Jewish leaders were falling all over themselves praising the antisemitic Carter as a veritable prince of peace.

So who should claim Sinai then? Well either I'm a bit slow or the author doesn't really say it out loud but rather implies that it should be to Israel!!
OK this is just bogus, so what if Sinai was never part of Egypt and was handed by the Britts in 1920, wasn't the same story for the state of Israel in 1948?
And if that was the case why the hell did the Egyptians claimed Taba, a part of Sinai that was still under Israeli control until 1989 through an international panel of arbitrators?
Give us a break.

On freedom of religion

I was misfortunate enough yesterday to be listening to Radio Sawa and part of their program is something called Sawa Chat where they go out on the streets and ask different people the same question to get different reactions.
Yesterday's question was "Do you believe that a person should be free to choose his own religion?"
And the answers went like this (all Egyptian people):

Man: yes any person should be free to choose based on readings and understandings of other religions but in the end one must choose Islam as it is the true religion.

Woman: Well I am lucky to be born a Muslim girl and any Muslim person should know that his religion is the true one so one should never think of changing but as for the Christians yes I think they should be free to become Muslims as it is the better religion

Man: A child is born and raised to be what his parents are, but when he becomes older he should read about all religions and be allowed to choose as long as he chooses Islam.

Me (to myself): May God have mercy on the man who doubts what he's sure of.

Merry Christmas Everybody

Bring back Eilat

The MPs in the Egyptian parliament are debating for the past two days whether Eilat the Israeli port city should belong to Egypt!!

"Eilat, or by its former name Umm Rashrash, belongs to the Palestinians," he said, representing the opinion of the Egyptian Foreign Ministry.

A-Nasser's response was meant to calm tempers in the rowdy debate in the Egyptian parliament, after dozens of opposition representatives demanded holding negotiations to have Eilat returned to Egyptian sovereignty

Significantly, in the debate among the Egyptian MPs, the experts and the Foreign Ministry officials, no mention is made of possible legitimate Israeli sovereignty of Eilat. The debate in Cairo is between two camps: the Egyptian Foreign Ministry which claims that Eilat belongs to the Palestinians, and the opposition MPs who claim that Eilat belongs to Egypt.

Hehehehe, so Eilat is either Egyptian or Palestinian.
I say flip a coin for it and the looser goes and claim Eilat from Israel!!

The "Angered upon" and the "Led astray"

I recently came across this:

Nevertheless, the idea that Christian belief and observance is illegitimate is deeply rooted within Islam. The Islamic prophet Muhammad composed for the Muslims a brief prayer, known as the Fatiha (Opening), that became the cornerstone of Muslim prayer (it is recited seventeen times a day by the Muslim who performs the five daily prayers) and the first sura of the Qur’an:

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds,
The Beneficent, the Merciful.
Master of the Day of Judgment,
Thee (alone) we worship; Thee (alone) we ask for help.
Show us the straight path,
The path of those whom Thou hast favoured;
Not the (path) of those who earn Thine anger nor of those who go astray. (Qur’an 1:1-7)

Even this, which has a status among Muslims analogous to the centrality of the Lord’s Prayer for Christians, has a polemical edge. Traditionally Muslim divines have identified those who have earned Allah’s anger with Jews and those who have gone astray with Christians. The Quranic commentator Ibn Kathir (1301-1372) explains that “these two paths are the paths of the Christians and Jews, a fact that the believer should be aware of so that he avoids them. The path of the believers is the knowledge of truth and abiding by it. In comparison, Jews abandoned practicing the religion, while the Christians lost the true knowledge. This is why ‘anger’ descended upon the Jews, while being described as ‘led astray’ is more appropriate of the Christians” (Tafsir Ibn Kathir, vol. 1, 87).

I really can't tell if this is true or not, and if it is, do all the Muslims in the world know it I mean do they know that they are cursing Christians and Jews 5 times a day, every day of their lives?
Not only then but even in their funerals and wedding proposals and mostly any type of agreement?
So yes my son I would love to give you my daughter as your future wife and while we're at it let's curse the Christians and Jews!!!

Ahmadinejad: What would Jesus do today?

The question came in his new year greeting to the Christian world:

"My one question from the Christians is: What would Jesus do if he were present in the world today? What would he do before some of the oppressive powers of the world who are in fact residing in Christian countries? Which powers would he revive and which of them would he destroy?" the Iranian president asked.

I would like to answer for that:
If JC was present today, he would have done nothing to the oppressive powers you are speaking about, nor he would have revived or destroyed either powers, why? Well if you have read anything regarding the life of JC you would have known that he came and went in peace, he never used any force in his mission nor he has taken sides and for sure he did not destroy any powers that existed back then.
But I'm willing to bite and assume that nowadays he will take sides and destroy the vicious power he sees deemed.
Sure you are right, he will take the side of the Muslim world against the oppressive powers of the west, I mean how dare they allow their people to practice personal freedom even if it means disobeying him in certain matters? Why would they not give privilege to people who follow him and discriminate those who don't? How dare they alienate his church from state like this, I know he said to give what belongs to Caesar to Caesar and what is God's to God but not like this. And why did they have to become so rich, didn't they know that JC loves the poor.
But on the other side, the Muslim world they do not allow people to commit acts that anger God and all they want is to live in peace and of course they treat his followers real nice no persecution or anything. So yes I do agree that Jesus would have taken the Muslim side.

Then he asks another question:

"If Jesus were present today, who would be facing him and who would be following him?" He added.

Now that's an easy question I do not need to answer, but if the answer I have in mind is true, well wouldn't this make today's Muslims to become infidels?
Someone please answer my question.


Keep the guy alive

The Americans are trying to keep alive Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman the mastermind of the 1993 World trade center bombing and who is gravely ill.


Well they think that his death might spark a wave of terror attacks as his latest message to his followers went like this:

“My Brothers...If they [the Americans] kill me, which they will certainly do – hold my funeral and send my corpse to my family, but do not let my blood be shed in vain. Rather, extract the most violent revenge, and remember your brother who spoke the truth and died for the will of God...The Mujahid Sheikh Omar Abdel al Rahman. In the name of God the kind and merciful.”

So even if the guy dies from a natural cause, this would not be the will of Allah but rather the doing of Americans (you know the bastards can make it look like the work of god) but the true believers and followers of the Sheikh would know better as he already told them what would happen and what to do.
So please keep the guy alive as long as you can.

Haniyeh: We're Shahids (martyrs), not ministers

May god or the IDF grant him his wish.


AJ & the Holocaust

For some reason I failed to understand, Ahmadinejad and his gang think that The Resolution of the Holocaust Issue Will End in the Destruction of Israel!!!

Iran Holocaust Denial Conference Announces Plan to Establish World Foundation for Holocaust Studies – To Be Eventually Based in Berlin and Headed by Iranian Presidential Advisor Mohammad-Ali Ramin Who Has Said: 'The Resolution of the Holocaust Issue Will End in the Destruction of Israel'

Ehh Berlin as in Germany? these guys are a real treat.


A stand-off

Finally it's happening a stand-off between the MBs and the Government, the reason as you all know it the the Hamas like parade which went on inside Al-Azhar university to protest the expelling of 6 of the MBs student.
So it's official now and out in the open, the MBs have a military wing and have training camps and they are not afraid to show it, and all this happened because our government is being such a big pussy with its handling of the MBs and was just concentrating on breaking down any liberal party or movement thinking that they represent the bigger threat.
Meanwhile the MBs were gaining huge ground and testing the government every once in a while, from organizing demonstrations to hot statments like the famous TOZ Fy Masr (Screw Egypt), and the kicking of any opposition to the MBs by the shoes, to the declaration that the MBs are ready to send a squad of 10,000 men to fight with Hizbollah against Israel, and the declaration that the MBs are ready to rule Egypt, up to the parade.
But apparently the latter was an overshot that the government could not take so they cracked down hard on the MBs arresting 120 of them including their number 3 man and their spokesman.
Now I really hope it wouldn't end there and the government would get scared of any further escalation and reach a deal with the MBs, instead I truly wish they would enlarge the scale of the operation and probe where the hell these people are getting their huge finances and cutting them off, something like what Nasser did in the 50s after the MBs tried to assassinate him, he really beat the shit out of them.
I know I know, human rights people and anti-torture and blah blah, but the thing is we are violating these rights anyway and with the wrong people, shouldn't we like do it to someone who really deserve it?

"A very jihady Xmas" the album

The new Jingle Bell:

Oh, infidels, infidels
In the Holy Land!
Oh what joy it brings to cut
Off an ear nose head or hand!

Go Listen to the song.


Behead people who don't pray 5 times daily

This is not a joke:

MOGADISHU, Somalia — Residents of a southern Somalia town who do not pray five times a day will be beheaded, an official said Wednesday, adding the edict will be implemented in three days.
Shops, tea houses and other public places in Bulo Burto, about 124 miles northeast of the capital, Mogadishu, should be closed during prayer time and no one should be on the streets, said Sheik Hussein Barre Rage, the chairman of the town's Islamic court. His court is part of a network backed by armed militiamen that has taken control of much of southern Somalia in recent months, bringing a strict interpretation of Islam that is alien to many Somalis.
Those who do not follow the prayer edict after three days have elapsed, "will definitely be beheaded according to Islamic law," Rage told The Associated Press by phone. "As Muslims we should practice Islam fully, not in part, and that is what our religion enjoins us to do."

I don't think I can comment.

The MBs "we are ready to rule Egypt"

So says their number 2 man Mohamed Habib in an interview with the Lebanese newspaper Al-akhbar.
Here is a translation of some of their interesting views:

Q: So when you reach power will you allow other secular parties to exist?
A: Yes but it will be allowed but only by law

Q: But you will be writing the laws and it will be Islamic?
A: The justice system will rule on these parties

Q: But the judges will rule with your laws which will prevent any opposition as it is an Islamic law?
A: This is natural, as we won't allow anything to go against the religion; can we allow a party for gays? Can we allow a party that promotes bars and dance clubs?

Q: What about tourism and foreigners?
A: We will deal with this when the time comes.

Q: But personal freedom is mandatory by the universal declaration of human rights?
A: We will take from the declaration what suits our culture, it is suitable for the west but there are many points we disagree with.

Q: Yes but Egypt already signed the declaration in 1948?
A: We're not committed to that and we can quit the declaration all together as long as it's against our culture.

Q: And what will you do with the treaties signed by Egypt, like Camp David with Israel?
A: It is well known in politics that a country reviews its signed treaties every while to set it on course, and that's what we'll do, we'll set up a committee from national security and economists and politicians to advise the free democratic parliament which should decide

Q: What about recognition of Israel which is stated in Camp David?
A: We object to that because we refused Camp David and see that recognition of Israel should be only by agreement with all Arab and Muslim nations.

Had enough? I know I did

Another Salman Rushdie

Well he might very well be:

One of Iran's most senior clergymen has issued a fatwa on an Azeri writer said to have insulted the Prophet Muhammad.
The call on Muslims to murder Rafiq Tagi, who writes for Azerbaijan's Senet newspaper, echoes the Iranian fatwa against Indian writer Salman Rushdie.

Man these Iranians are tough, the moment you say something they don't like they don't hesitate to use their most ferocious weapon (The Fatwa).
So what did this Azri writer say that hurt them so much?

They accuse the Azeri writer of portraying Christianity as superior to Islam and Europe as superior to the Middle East.

Oh how dare he, now I'm not saying that Christianity is Superior to Islam or vice versa but what's wrong in someone saying that it is? They do it all the time, they always say that Islam is superior to all other religions and they believe it and they teach that to the children not to mention the preachers who love to express the supremacy of Islam by insulting other religions and their followers (Apes and pigs are a very common term used here). As for the other part of the accusation that Europe is Superior to the Middle East, oh well sorry I can't help you on this one buddy you're just dead wrong!!!

I would like to seize this opportunity to congratulate Mr.Tagi for the wonderful future ahead of him, he will most probably seek refuge in a western country where he will be given a secure place to live and have a 24/7 protection, he Will become famous and his writings will be best sellers and he will make a fortune, he would be giving lectures and he will be honored in many places.

Take the pill man

This is just great:

Scientists are working on a contraceptive treatment which would stop men ejaculating sperm.

Stop men ejaculating sperm you say? So what are we supposed to ejaculate then? Gases? Or may be it stops men from having orgasms once and for all!!
And for sure women are happy about this:

"For women, it would be another form of liberation."

Sure why not, wait it gets worse:

he was concerned that sperm would be 'redirected' into urine, or be present in the urethra, and could that pregnancies could therefore still occur.

Seriously, what's wrong with condoms?


You gotto love Tunisia

"Veil is an imported form of sectarian dress" that's its official definition in Tunisia

Not only that but you have statements from officials like this:

President Zin Al-'Abidin Ben 'Ali: We Must Differentiate Between Foreign Sectarian Dress And Authentic Tunisian Clothing

RCD Party Secretary-General: "If We Agree Today To The Head covering, Tomorrow We Will Accept That Women Will Be Deprived Of Their Right To Work And Their Right To Vote"

Religious Affairs Minister Boubaker Al-Akhzouri: "There Is No Uniform Islamic Clothing… The Substitution Of Foreign Dress For Tunisian Clothing Is A Clear And Open Repudiation Of National Identity"

One can only wonder if any one of the Egyptian officials issued a statement like this what would become of him?


Another Plane crash

For Iran:

An Iranian military plane has crashed while taking off from an airport in Tehran, killing elite troops.

This adds to an already extremely poor air safety record for the Iranians and the reason?

A generation of international isolation has undermined safety standards within Iran's civil and military aviation fleet, experts say, increasing the likelihood of major air disasters

This should give you an idea how close the Iranians are to actually complete their nuclear program alone and come up with the nuclear bomb.
They cannot maintain airplanes for god sake knowing there are no secrets or hidden knowledge in maintaining planes, so much for building a nuclear reactor and keep it safe.
Oh, I forgot they have the notorious Ahmadinejad as their leader and he's a messenger straight from the heavens, he would guide them through their Nuclear program as he has God on his side I'm sure no harm can occur to the Iranian reactors even if it went without any safety features or maintenance.
Say Inshallah.

Veil row round up

OK this is a round up of the row caused by the minister of culture's words against the veil.

- Apparently what happened last week in the parliament represents a direct breech to the Egyptian constitution as it states that any minister is only to be questioned by the parliament in matters of his/her official duties as a minister and to answer only to his/her policies and decisions in regard of how his ministry is performing.
So that makes last week's session in the parliament completely bogus and leaves the house speaker A.K.A. Mr. Fathy Sorour A.K.A. the biggest asshole of the day, to answer how he allowed this to happen, not only that but how could he state that any official wishes to express his views to relief himself from formal duties, I mean it turned out that what he said is not in the constitution so it qualifies as a personal view, so shouldn't he practice what he preach and relief himself? I don't think so.

- Yesterday, there was demonstrations everywhere mostly by veiled women to protest what's happening in Iraq after 202 people were killed by insurgents and also what's happening in Lebanon with a civil war on the brink, and no one mentioned anything about Mr. Hosni's remarks!!

- Today, the grand sheikh of Azhar stated that the veil is not up for debate and not something that one expresses opinions about!................ hmmm interesting.

- Three cases were filed at the public prosecutor's office against Mr. Hosni in contempt to Islam, one was filed by a Muslim cleric and two by lawyers.

- The biggest insult for the veil in my opinion came from Mr. Kamal Elshazly when he stood up in the parliament and proudly announced that his wife and daughter are both veiled, to all of you who don't know, the guy represents a symbol of corruption in Egypt and he's detested by everyone. But no one saw the irony in a corrupted man defending the veil.

- There are some voices who spoke in support of the minister but unfortunately they are few and not loud enough as they are mainly highly mannered voices that believe in a decent way for debate and can not be heard amongst the screaming and wheeling voices from the other side.

- There is a new motto for the NDP party, it goes like this: " If you can't beat them, Join them".

I don't get it!

Just a quick question, Minster Mr. Hosny expressed what he thinks about hair cover in private meeting and his words leaked to the media.
This caused the whole country to go in to rage and disbelief.
How about officials religious clerks who appear on TV insulting other religions, including Christianity which %10 of Egyptians follow.
Don't you agree with me that Egyptians are the biggest discriminators.

Breaking the mood

I must say this is so funny yet so pathetic:

Six Muslim imams were removed from a U.S. Airways flight in Minneapolis after several of them got up for evening prayers.

Seriously, how do these people do it I mean praying on a plane, how do they even know the direction for kaaba, and do they really bend down and pray in the plane's Isle?
And of course angry Muslims voices were quick to be raised:

The Council on American-Islamic Relations Tuesday called for a probe into U.S. Airways personnel who removed six Muslim imams from an airliner.

What probe you morons, if not anything they were disturbing other passengers, I mean couldn't they just prayed individually and in silence to avoid this, no they had to pray in a group to earn more bonus points from god! And how would they feel if they got on a plane and found there was a mass going on?
Where is this world heading to?



Meanwhile Lebanon is on fire, but why do we care Israel has nothing to do with it, besides we have more important issues to take care of!


The Calamity goes on

So the veil saga and the minister of culture's words against it continues.
Yesterday in the parliament it was all about this, every force was trying to weigh in as the defender of Islam with the MBs in front but joined with the NDP members who even went farther with the issue than the MBs....
But I'm sure it has nothing to do with exploiting the religion for political gains, they are just trying to protect Islam from the likes of Mr. Hosni who if we let them speak their own opinions it will sure undermine the great religion and thus weaken our aim to build a strong and prosperous country just by acting more religious.
This is the same parliament where not a word was mentioned after the mass sexual harassment in downtown Cairo, so to give you an idea how the MPs are out there to protect our women.
A member of the NDP said he would leave the party if Mr. Hosni wasn't sacked, now I truly hope the guy stays in power and see about that.
The president of the parliament said that if someone wishes to speak his own opinion should relief himself first from his formal duties, which I think is a very important precedence in our modern history and constitutes a direct threat to freedom of speech.
Meanwhile, the poor guy is staying at home avoiding all confrontations he just said that what happened to him is plain terrorism to anyone who dares to speak his own thoughts.
Could you agree more?


It's a Calamity!

Egypt's minister of culture Farouk Hosni has come under heavy fire after speaking to an independent newspaper against the veil, saying it's sign of going backwards and that Egypt is not going to improve while people are listening to worthless Muftis.
Mr. Hosni then backed up and said that these were his personal opinions and not formal and that he was not giving a statement but rather came in a phone conversation with the guy who published this.
Needless to say all the Islamist groups with the MBs in front slammed the guy as ignorant and trying to dishonor Egyptian women and unclothe them.
Saudi grand Mufti Sheik Abdul-Aziz al-Sheik called it a calamity, and for once in my life I find myself in total agreement with an Islamic cleric but for all the different reasons:
Sure it's a calamity when comes a time when any one is judged and even asked to resign for speaking his opinion.
It's a calamity when the virtue of a women is measured by a stupid piece of cloth she cover her hair with.
It's a calamity when women are subjected to all sorts of pressure to finally submit and cover their hair.
Islamists keep saying that western countries are oppressing Muslim women not to wear the veil, which is not true but they stop short of criticizing the massive pressure put on women in their own countries to don the veil, starting from the clerics who tell the women they would be hanged from their hair in hell if they should not cover it, to the girl's parents who see the veil as a way to protect their little girl out on the streets and of course we all know now how that turned to be, to the husband who wishes to have an early start to show his women who's in power or just that he's embarrassed that all his friend's wives are veiled and his wife is not, if not all that then it's the main-stream pressure out on the street, unveiled women are harassed verbally and sometimes spat on in the public transportation and out on the street, isn't this enough pressure to make even the brightest girl to wear the veil, just to skip all the trouble?
One of the best arguments I heard regarding what the minister said came from the MBs themselves, they said that politicians should not speak in matters of religion, that's great so shouldn't this work both ways I mean shouldn't you religious people not speak in matters of politics?
So what the hell are you doing in our parliament you bunch of assholes?



This is an article published today in Alahram newspaper by Sherif Elshoubashy:

So so true.

Protest anyone?

Last week there was a protest in Cairo for the Eid sexual harassments incidents in downtown Cairo, and as I expected it only gathered a few hundred people.
Now all this protests deal really amazes me in our Arab world, when Israel kills Palestinians or wages war against Lebanon, you get thousands of people protesting in the streets, when the US and its allies attack Afghanistan or Iraq, same story and please don't let me start on what happens when someone say any word about the prophet Mohamed.
On the other hand, women get attacked in the middle of the streets, and activists organize a protest but nobody shows, we get struck by terrorist attacks which would have effects on every one of us but nothing no protests. We hear of police torturing people for saying their beliefs, you get a few dozens here and there protesting.
Iraqis kill each others, why do we care they should settle their internal affairs, and the same way goes for Palestinians fighting each other.
Now please someone explains to me what is the sense in all of this, do we really care about other people as long as they are Arabs or Muslims than we care about ourselves?
Or have we gone that blind that we only see what the west is doing to us but fail to see what we are doing to ourselves?
I'm not saying we should forget about what's happening in the world and concentrate in our own affairs (although this would be one smart thing to do) but there are priorities right? And don't forget that people we are protesting for are becoming martyrs so we should rejoice for them not be angry.
God knows that Egypt has done a lot for the Arab world for nothing and all we got in return was hatred and envy and all sorts of bad feelings towards us.
People wake up, mind your own business first then look outside; no one will be willing to help us when the shit really hits the fan. Right?


Another Veto.

The US has vetoed another UN resolution calling to blame Israel for its latest offensive which killed 19 women and children.
Now I'm not a big fan of the way Arabs and Muslims are behaving but I think that the US is really going too far with their support to the Jewish state, I mean what's a blame anyway it's just like saying to your kid "you bad boy" so what if the US would let the UN blame Israel every once in a while, it would help the Arab world to blow some steam and lessen their hatred to America just a notch, I truly think this would help the Arabs to feel some sort of moral victory instead of the continuous humiliation they feel every time they have an encounter with the west which of course lead to the sense of persecution and eventually despair and you all know the rest to come.
It goes without saying that the interest of the US and Israel is the same but sometimes I feel the US jeopardize its own safety to protect Israel.

Anyway these are my thoughts, and I could be wrong.


Here we go again

Many apologies for the lack of blogging, Waldorf was in faraway lands, but unfortunately he liked it there but couldn't find anything to bitch about, so he had to come back.
So let the bitching begins.

Basic Instinct

Sorry, I have been super busy but I was stunned during last couple of weeks by the mass sexual harassment in downtown Cairo.
I understand that there is something called basic instinct!!!
These young men as well as old men have raging hormones that need to be released.
And by the way Egypt is heading, what happened in downtown is the only way.

The Martyr, the victim and the dead

One of the things that dazzle me the most in the Arabic world is the difference between a martyr and a victim and a dead. We think that a martyr is a person who gets killed while defending his country or his religion (Islam of course) and we are told that this person is going straight to heaven, while the victim is a person (mainly civilian) who is killed by accident or caught in a cross fire and the dead is the one that dies from natural reasons. Right?
OK, so you listen to Aljazeera and you hear that a number of persons were killed in Iraq by American strikes or in Palestine by Israeli Defence Force and they would call these persons martyrs, the next piece of news is about a number of persons killed in Iraq by a suicide bomber but these guys they call them victims!! And it gets worse some would call the guy who blew them up a Martyr. This is very confusing right?
So let's leave the militant guys for now and look at the ordinary peaceful Iraqi guy who is sleeping in his house and bang the house is struck by an American bomb this guy gets killed and he is a martyr while his neighbour is not that lucky he wakes up in the morning goes to his work and bang a suicide bomber strikes, the guy gets killed and he's a mere victim!
The conclusion I got is if you are killed by a foreign force (even if you are attacking them in their country) you are a martyr, but if you get killed by one of your own you're a victim.

And as I said the martyr goes straight to heaven I mean god doesn't even look at the person's life and what wrong or right he did, no god will be sitting up there watching Aljazeera and when the person stands before him he would tell him they called you a Martyr take him to heaven, while when the good victim stands, god would say OK let's see you stole a cookie when you were in 3rd grade .......hmmm.

The Mufti, women and cats

According to this, what the great Mufti of Australia said:

"If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside... and the cats come and eat it... whose fault is it, the cats' or the uncovered meat?"

Now I'm not gonna comment on how despicable it is to compare women's flesh with raw meat or men with cats which the last I heard were animals, no I'm going to let it all pass. All I want to say to this stupid pervert if you get a piece of meat and wrap it all the way in cloth, the cats and dogs will still tear it apart, why? because they are animals and they only follow their instincts yeah exactly like yourself.
What even made it worse is that his comments sparked a round of applause from people attending Friday prayers.
Another proof that the top Muslim cleric in Australia have no brain is that he's been living there for 20 years and he still can't speak a word of English.


Meanwhile in Australia

The head Muslim cleric is calling the non-veiled women "exposed skin" that brought to themselves sexual attacks and rape! (Arabic link).
Oh well where was that again... AUSTRALIA for god sake not Iran, not Afghanistan, not KSA, no he's in Sydney. This is like going to KSA and say that any woman that doesn't wear a bikini in this dreadful weather is a stupid retarded woman (at least this would be true)!

Anyway you don't see mass sexual harassment in the streets of Sydney like the ones we saw in Cairo you sick bastard.

Mass sexual harassment!

OK this is serious, apparently yesterday evening there was mass sexual harassment for any girl, woman who was misfortune enough to be passing by downtown Cairo. There was a mass of around a 1000 horny frustrated hungry dicks wandering in the streets spotting any and I mean any female whether she was young or old, veiled or not hell even the women in Niquab didn't escape it, and they would circle the victim and start harassing her right in the street! Until they find another vicitm.
And where were the police someone may ask? well they were involved in a much more serious operation to maintain order in a near-by movie theatre.
Now why this happened? many reasons of course, like poverty, unemployment, frustration, blah blah blah, and of course let's not forget that Ramadan has just ended and people were behaving themselves and spending all their time in the mosque during this month and let's not forget the fatwa banning masturbation during the whole month of Ramadan, and to all of you who don't know it masturbation is the only sexual activity most young men are allowed to have before marriage, so people have obeyed all what they were told and now it's the Eid a time for celebration right and since they stopped using their brains and left the Sheikhs to do the thinking for them and tell them what they should do, and apparently no Sheikh told them not to attack females on the streets so here we go.
And to all the people who advocate the veil as a way to preserve women and help men calm down, ehh well fuck you very much.

Check out Green data and Zeinobia on their takes, and Malek has a complete coverage with photos but it's in Arabic.

Video of a suicide car bombing

This is really sick, it's a documentary of a suicide car bomb attack supposedly in Iraq along with a step by step tutorial to operating a car bomb, what really got to me is the guy who's carrying this seems quit happy he's blowing himself up, god I really wished the bomb would have blown right when he was showing how to detonate it and blow the stupid camera man with him, but no such luck.

Check it out if you want.

War zone

Today I was awaken at 7 am scared like hell thinking I was sleeping in Iraq or something by huge sounds of explosions in the streets which went on for almost 20 mins. Dazed and trying to figure out what the hell is going on when it hit me, it's the Eid today in Egypt and kids returning from morning prayers with their parents are playing with fireworks, which is a stupid habit that seem to grow every year. Despite the huge number of accidents we read in the papers every year parents are still getting the fireworks to their 7 and 8 years old and give them a match and say "light it up son". And of course who gives a damn about people resting in this hour they are either infidels who are enjoying a holiday on our behalf or Muslims that are too lazy to wake up for the morning prayers, well that should teach them a lesson to fulfil their duties to god or face this.

Happy Eid everybody


Sunday, October 22, 2006


I was in the supermarket yesterday minding my own business, and when I was reaching to grab a couple of Dasani water bottles a nice looking guy approached me:
-Guy: Elsalamo aleykom (pretty much like Hi but Islamic way)
-me: and good morning to you too.
-guy: do you know that this brand of water is made by an American company?
-me: yes but what......
-guy: do you know that the bottles are manufactured in Israel?
-me: No actually I.......
-guy: and that they are putting cancerous materials in the bottles to react with water and cause cancer to anyone drinking from the bottle?
-me: oh my god the bastards are trying to kill us!
-guy: yes it's all part of a big conspiracy.
-me: So how exactly did you know this information?
-guy: Oh I read it in the Internet.
-me: Ahh and do you believe everything you read in the Internet?
-guy: yes they took a sample from the bottles and analyzed it.
-me: who exactly are (they), the ones that wrote the article?
-guy: well yes I guess.
-me (picking up the bottles and putting them in my basket): well thanks for the warning I'll make sure to spread the word.
-me (to myself): last thing I read in the Internet is that Islam values the mind, ehh well might as well believe that.


And the list is still growing!!

I have grown up to know few things that are "7aram" banned or forbidden in Islam and that included:
- Eating ham (which I don't understand why as long as we have fridge these days to preserve it)
- Alcohol (which I think it should be being drunk and not Alcohol).

The thing is, during last 20 years, new things started to be added to this list based on fabrication and supported by Oil money and here is a sample:
- Women's hair
- Pretty much women's body.
- Men wearing gold.
- Men wearing Silk.
- Eating with left hand.
- Statues.
- Having Dogs indoors.
- Photography.
- Music that moves your senses.
And that is only what I have heard so far (feel free to add to this list if you know more)

The thing that freaks me out is that this not it, the list is growing up every day and it won't stop.
The good news is, I have a back door access and I got you the candidate items that will make 2007 list and here how it looks:
- Thinking.
- Reading anything except Quran.
- Women.
- Traveling except to Mecca and Maddina (the holly Muslim places).
- Dealing with non-Muslims.

Wish you a happy life.

Convert to Christianity.... rott in jail.

I guess it's better than being killed, right? Thank god he's in Egypt.
The Sandmonkey has the whole story.


Veil, Khimar and Niquab a rational argument

Came across an interesting article today it's about the dress code in Islam, one of the best arguments I've read about veils and the best thing about it is that it's all based on the Koran, so to all of the veil entouthiasts I give you this.
A word of warning anyone who reads it should make absolutely sure that he/she still have some sort of brain, any tiny winy particle would do.

Lailat el Kader ليلة القد ر (is it the same in each coutnry)

I didn't know how start this blog, so while I am listening to Nogoom FM (which should be called Hogoom FM in Ramadan) I got surprised by the amount of Religious songs and the prayers every 2 mins.
They simply prompting the extreme culture, that Muslims should spend their time in Saudi Arabia, spending their money to Saudies. How much sins Muslims have been committing and that requires prayers all the time.
Anyhow, they were talking about Lailat El Kader (which should be the night when all your sins will be vanished if you walk up all night to pray).
I don't mind people doing this or it is not my business, but what really struck me is, they said it should be odd day, means (23, 25, 27 or 29 of Ramadan) which I never heard before like most of the new things we hear every day but this is not the issue.
The issue which I didn't get is, Muslim countries started fasting on three different days, which means lailat el Kader can't occur on the same day unless it is customized for each country.
I am just wondering, these people who keep coming up with these things don't think, or I guess they know that people will listen and never think.


Ramadan is 31 days!

Yesterday there was a guy in the papers weeping that he started Ramadan when he was in KSA a day before Egypt, and now he's in Egypt and there is a big chance that Ramadan will be 30 days in Egypt this year. So the guy was asking the sheikhs to tell him what to do, he'll be fasting Ramadan for 31 days or should he follow KSA to the end!
Now this is hilarious, people in the gulf still counts on any two adults to see the moon with their bear eyes to announce the beginning of Ramadan, while in Egypt they use astrology to determine it long before the month begins. What's really funny is that the word around is that no way anybody could have seen the moon in the gulf region that night some even suggested that the may have spotted the planet Neptune!!!!
What's even funnier is that a lot of Egyptians resent the fact that we depend on astrology they say we should follow KSA anyway, some even do!


Ramadan a national holiday

I hate Ramadan, sorry but I couldn't put it in any other words, it's a month that retardness seem to blossom like no other time of the year.
In Ramadan the traffic is always horrible, people are always fighting in the streets, accidents are numerous as people drive like crazy to get home in time for their iftar, and of course no work is done in Ramadan. You ask a guy for your overdue work and he says "come on it's Ramadan I'm fasting" you ask someone to pay his bill he says "sure after Ramadan work is slow you know" I've been trying to get a hold on a person for the last 3 days for an urgent business and finally his assistant calls me yesterday to tell me that his boss is in isolation in the mosque for the past week and he's (getting out) this evening only and be back in isolation tomorrow so I'd better meet with him or I'll miss my chance to after Ramadan!!!!!
For me the whole month of Ramadan should be a national vacation people should sleep all mornings and hang out or watch TV in the evenings it would actually save a lot of money and the traffic would be great and it's not like any work is being done anyway. We'll just have to concentrate on the remaining 11 months of the year, oh wait there are also the small and big bairam which counts for another 2 weeks, other national and religious holidays... ok we have another month so it's like 10 out of 12 months to get some work done!!
I don't think it's that bad.


Greetings from Waldorf

People, this is my first blog ever I don't know what got me to do this, I don't have much time to spare but I'll try to keep it regular.
Some of you may not like what we will be posting here, but that's ok we don't expect all people to agree with us, either ways you can leave a comment, we'll allow anything no moderation yet, but please no death threats.
Blogging would be a little slow at first until it becomes a part of my system and Statler would spare some of his precious time to share his thoughts.
