The enlightened prince to show the US the error of its ways
The Prince of Wales will try to persuade George W Bush and Americans of the merits of Islam this week because he thinks the United States has been too intolerant of the religion since September 11.

The Prince, who leaves on Tuesday for an eight-day tour of the US, has voiced private concerns over America's "confrontational" approach to Muslim countries and its failure to appreciate Islam's strengths.

The Prince raised his concerns when he met senior Muslims in London in November 2001. The gathering took place just two months after the attacks on New York and Washington. "I find the language and rhetoric coming from America too confrontational," the Prince said, according to one leader at the meeting.


Wow, does this fool really expect us to listen to anything he has to say? What an incredible pompous ass. By what right does he think he deserves any hearing from us in the States? I find it incredible that anyone in their right mind can say that we've been too intolerant of Islam since 9/11. In fact, you can look to a lot of our policies and say we've been handcuffed by our own sense of fairness. We go overboard to protect the rights and feelings of just about every group you can imagine, sometimes to our own detriment.

Hearing this from him just makes me sick. Keep your nose on your side of the pond where someone might give a flip what you think!

So as not to offend Mr Al Wahish's delicate Arab sensibilities


Ruby, bloggie's favorite Egyptian singer, has supposedly dedicated herself to worshiping God. More accurately, Ruby, under fear of being banned in Egypt and facing lawsuits for "being a bad example to all Egyptians" is making a point of appearing religious, at least for the month of Ramadan.

evariste in Discarded Lies:
Saddam had agreed to exile, but Arab League scuppered the deal
Arab nations rejected Saddam exile plan
Deposed Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein had secretly accepted a last-minute plan to go into exile to avert the 2003 Iraq war, but Arab leaders shot the proposal down, Al Arabiya television reported today.
UAE President Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan al-Nahayan made the proposal for Saddam to go into exile at an emergency Arab summit just weeks before the US-led war began in March 2003.

But the 22-member Arab League, led by Secretary-General Amr Moussa, refused to consider the initiative.

"We had got the final agreement from the different parties, the main players in the world and the person concerned – Saddam Hussein – within 24 hours," Mohammed bin Zayed, deputy head of the UAE armed forces and crown prince of Abu Dhabi, told the UAE-based channel in a documentary.

"So we were coming to put facts on the table, and there would have been results had it been discussed," he said.

Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak says in the documentary that the US had signalled its support for the proposal.

The documentary says the Iraqi delegation at the summit in Egypt had been unaware of Saddam's "secret consent" to the plan, which Iraqi Foreign Minister Naji Sabri dismissed as "silly".

It was not clear why Arab opposition alone scuppered the arrangements, which Al Arabiya said would have seen Saddam go into UAE exile with a promise of protection from legal action.
It would have been a travesty if he was allowed to live a life of luxury in exile, free from prosecution for his crimes. Uday and Qusay would be alive today. And Iraq might be an even worse mess. I can't tell what *would* have happened, but I know I'm glad it's turned out this way. Would the US have allowed Saddam to pick a substitute dictator? Would Iraqis have voted on their own Constitution by now? I doubt it. And Saddam would definitely not have gone on trial if his exile was conditioned on perpetual legal immunity.

Neturei Karta to the rescue
Okay, I admit it: the post title is based on an assumption. The linked article, where "a senior Jewish clergy, prominent Jewish figure and spokesman for the biggest anti-Zionism Jewish organization in the US" rushes to explain that Ahmadinejad did not mean that Jews should be destroyed, only "the illegal and illegitimate Zionist movement," does not mention the organization's name. But I cannot think of any other suicidal Jewish organization.

sine in The People's Diner:
Would you eat this stuff?
Packen and floranista drink Coke, but Lyana and monkeyweather want Pepsi. Evariste runs in a panic from delicious albeit stinky cheeses. Marine Momma won't eat anchovies, and neither will Sine. Zorkie practically won't eat anything.

"One man's food is another man's poison."

I'm sure food preferences would be an important theme in human history if historians weren't so preoccupied with trivial stuff like wars and empires.

"'If we all liked the same things, there'd be a terrible shortage of oatmeal,' said the Scotsman."

Here are some recipes that someone somewhere must have thought were really good, or they wouldn't have made it onto Epicurious. Unfortunately, they were almost universally panned by the reviewers. Would you eat this stuff?

Tasteless Rosa Parks Cartoon
In keeping with zorkie's bizarre cartoon theme of the morning, here's something from outer space:

rosa parks and jesus.gif

I think it's supposed to be a sweet tribute, that poor Rosa kept fighting her fight till she died and finally got to stop and come to Jesus, but it's not even accurate. Rosa Parks on the bus was a seminal moment for America, but she went back to a quiet life after that, and America changed. I'm sure the cartoonist meant well, but this just leaves my jaw on the floor.

Arkas
I was reading a comic book by Arkas yesterday, he's a very popular Greek comic artist with a sharp and off-the-wall sense of humour, as the following cartoon shows:


For a background and additional samples of his work, you can visit this Arkas fan site (caution: musak), where the owner has kindly translated some of our mysterious artist's work. I say mysterious because no one knows who Arkas is and he (if it's a he) has never appeared in public. He does have a website but I wasn't able to access it when I was writing this post.

I've read most of the Arkas comic book series with "Lucretia and Castrato" being my favourites. The one I just read was in "The Life After" series and I've enjoyed those as well. "The Life After" is about a guy who dies and goes to Heaven where he proceeds to ask an angel and a demon all sorts of questions about life, the universe and everything. The angel and demon are equally amusing and they fire back some smartass answers and the whole book was interesting and witty until I got to the very last page where the dead guy asks: "Since the story of Genesis is in the Old Testament, it means that Adam and Eve were Jewish, right?" The demon answers: "Not at all! If they were Jewish they wouldn't have eaten the apple, they would have sold it."

This joke felt like a punch in the stomach. It was unrelated to anything, it was gratuitous, it came out of nowhere, and the book ended on those words. I don't know if Arkas himself is an anti-semite or what he was thinking when he wrote this but I feel like anti-semitism has soiled a person I've admired for years. And that made me sad and disappointed.

Have you been chagrined and deflated to discover that someone you admired is an anti-semite? Console me by telling me about it.

'Arab World Notebook'
What your kids are learning about Israel, America and Islam
In thousands of public school districts across the United States, without ever knowing it, taxpayers pay to disseminate pro-Islamic materials that are anti-American, anti-Israel and anti-Jewish.

Often bypassing school boards and nudging aside approved curricula, teaching programs funded by Saudi Arabia make their way into elementary and secondary school classrooms.

These teachings enter school systems with the help of a federal program, Title VI of the Higher Education Act, that is now up for renewal.

Expert analyses of these materials have found them to be full of inaccuracies, bias and proselytizing. They also have found that many of the major history and social studies textbooks used in schools across the country are highly critical of democratic institutions and forgiving of repressive ones.

These materials praise and sometimes promote Islam, but criticize Judaism and Christianity and are filled with false assertions.

Most taxpayers don’t know they’re paying — at the federal, state and local levels — for the public schools to advance these materials.

Much has been written about the anti-Israel, anti-American bias found at many university Middle East studies departments, some of which receive Saudi funding. Critics have also probed the export of Saudi teachings to American mosques and Islamic schools.

A special yearlong investigation by JTA reveals for the first time how Saudi influence is penetrating the American classrooms of young children.

The investigation uncovers the complex path by which biased textbooks and supplementary teaching materials creep into U.S. public schools. It reveals who creates these materials and how some of America’s most prestigious universities — with the use of federal funds — become involved in disseminating them.

Saudi influence enters the classrooms in three different ways. The first is through teacher-training seminars that provide teachers with graduate or continuing-education credits.

The second is through the dissemination of supplementary teaching materials designed and distributed with Saudi support. Such materials flood the educational system and are available online.

The third is through school textbooks paid for by taxpayers, some of them vetted by activists with Saudi ties, who advise and influence major textbook companies about the books’ Islamic, Arab, Palestinian, Israeli and Middle Eastern content.
The report is long and it's in several parts but it's definitely worth reading.
