ADC: Arab American Professionals’ Gateway to DC

When my college advisor told me about the Washington Seminar, I was so excited just thinking about having an internship in Washington DC, where the political sausage is made. Little did I know, my college campus had few internships that I qualified for. It wasn’t likely that I would be offered an internship at one of the many conservative think tanks in the DC area. Besides, what a member of Congress would do with a Palestinian student is beyond me!

The Gazan Dark Ages

It took me some time, but I have finally figured it out: I will take them to Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament. Think about it… everyone at the show is bearded and scary-looking, and look like they might really hurt you. There is little food, everyone is armed, and there’s no power, just candles. There is no fuel and no cars, so people use horses. Plus they don’t bathe as often. And yes, wars and disease surround you. Perhaps being part of this show will allow them to see some of the good things about Gaza. Or maybe they’ll just feel at home…

How Whole Foods Stole Ramadan

Whole Foods’ actions puts the crazies in the driver’s seat. Such a hateful bunch won’t live long. Their hatred will damage their mental and physical wellness and none of the fine Whole Foods’ goods will help extend their lives.

Ramadan In The Mormon Heartland

My second year on campus was much better, I met a lot more people and since the terrorists attacks of 9/11 have already happened, there was a lot more students studying Arabic and Islam.

Gaza Faces Severe Botox Shortage

Dr. Mansour Mostafa, Gaza’s top plastic surgeon, “If you think about it, it makes perfect sense,” “Israel’s siege is making people age quicker, and with that comes more wrinkles.“ According to several other surgeons interviewed for this this report, Gaza is becoming increasingly more vain and has turned into a chic urban center where pop stars are the trend setters.

Things I learned from watching Arab TV

Despite the challenges (ha), I still managed to enjoy some quality television time. We don’t have TV at home, so it was a brave new world of shows and commercials for me. The best Arab channels are MBC 2 and MBC 4. I watched Emma (the 1996 version) on MBC 2 one of the nights I was at the hotel, along with bits and pieces of other movies and shows. It’s been a while since I’ve watched Arab TV for any length of time, and I found myself learning some things.

Gaza Today Dot Com

We have recently launched “GazaToday.com”, an unofficial visitors guide for Gaza, Palestine. Our aim is to provide useful up-to-date information about Gaza to locals and foreign visitors alike through an online directory that includes all types of information that visitors need when planning a visit to Gaza: Accommodation/hotels, restaurants, cultural centers, service providers, events, in addition to other information. The website also features maps, articles, and photo galleries that will help visitors form a better picture about the city.

7 Arabs Wary of Palestinians

You can hate the game, but not the player. While the majority of Arabs support the Palestinian cause and want to see it resolved, there are those Arabs who do not have warm feelings toward Palestinians. Despite this, along with the Arabic language, the Palestinian cause unites most people of Arab descent. Nevertheless, there are groups of Arabs that will forever remain wary of Palestinians

Shakira Goes to Israel And Hugs a Murderer

Shakira seems to have answered her own question in her earlier song “Dónde Están los Ladrones” -Where Are the Thieves? She visited a place that was founded by ladrones.

My Sexy Egyptian Legs Go To Paris

The song is titled El Helm, “the dream” and that’s just what most boys know Sandy for, the girl of their Egyptian dreams. The girls of Paris–the world’s fashion hub got nothing on Sandy, she is unafraid to show a lot more skin than many are willing to tolerate. She has been doing that non stop in Arabia ever since she emerged three years ago. Sandy might be on a secret mission to bring down the recent French ban on niqab. Her sexy legs campaign might be an effort to give the French government the middle finger by telling them your niqab ban won’t be shutting this Egyptian girl down.
