Will Sacha Baron Cohen Bring His Muslim Bashing To An End?

Sacha Baron Cohen loves to mock all things Arab and Muslim. All three of his most popular movies have gone out of their way to vilify Arabs and Muslims. Now, as brave men and women in the Arab world courageously and resiliently face down the despots that have beaten and killed them, Baron Cohen portrays a dictator.

You-nilateral? I’m-a-lateral!

Nabil looks at the issue of unilateral actions by Israelis and, uh, apparently Palestinians?

Too Fat for a Revolution

This problem is very easy to solve. Just imagine that the building has always had only one elevator. You wouldn’t have anything to be frustrated about.

Sourian Nationalism Must Overcome (Part 4/4)

Had Souria been one country, the US invasion of Iraq would have been unfeasible, the Lebanese civil war would have never happened, and Israel could not have survived, and we wouldn’t have Palestinian refugees living all over Souria as unwanted foreigners.

Sourian Nationalism Must Overcome (Part 1/4)

The division between Iraq and Syria, between Syria and Lebanon, between Syria and Palestine, and between Palestine and Jordan, were all imposed to weaken one of the most rebellious people on earth.

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.

Kill Saleh

A rebellious dictator can be handled (some shrapnel and an airplane ride to Riyadh will do). But an entire country?
