Foul Fanatics Foment Feral Fecal Fatwas

December 4, 2012

My ‘Person of the Year 2012’ – Malala Yousafzai. The epitome of an ‘Anti-Blasted Fool’. I frequently highlight the many examples of how islam is not now and was never conceived by its founder and his followers as a ‘religion of peace’.  Instead it is a religion in which those who resist its conversion find […]

The Awakening

November 28, 2012

Some events are of such magnitude that they tend to elicit a reaction from even the most inert societies.  Think France and its typical moral ambivalence.   Similarly, some events have the tendency to create a level of discomfort that even takes us out of our natural comfort zone of common and basic cultural foundations.  […]

Lara Logan – Journalistic Integrity – it’s not always an Oxymoron

October 11, 2012

I have the sense that I’ve just discovered the needle – or at least a needle, in the proverbial haystack.  A field reporter inside the belly of the beast – the legacy, political, corporate media, that has actually dared to contradict that media’s anointed President and his administration. It’s a little shocking to hear what […]

This just in.  Women are not only fed up to the eyeslots in their Burkhas and Hijabs, but are fighting back against the pigs that are oppressing them – in Iran of all places!

The research and preparation for this post was undertaken before the commemoration of 9/11, the report of the attack on our Embassy and the murder of our Ambassador to Libya and other embassy personnel. So, the topic matter is more than a little ironic. Last week’s events underline the fact that Islam, an ideology and […]

Muslims believe that the Koran was sent down to the lowest heaven during this month, thus being prepared for gradual revelation by the Archangel Jibraeel to the Islamic prophet Muhammad. Fasting during Ramadan is one of the Five Pillars of Islam. “Even as Ramadan holds profound meaning for the world’s 1.5 billion Muslims, it is […]

Until Death Do Us Part … Or, Maybe Not?

I was trying to find images to accompany this report, but it occurred to me that because this topic is so horrendous, so unimaginable to the sensibilities of civilized human beings, I’d best choose something to blunt the shock value to an extent.  Besides, I love old movie posters. Please don’t think that the point […]

George Kennedy Young’s ‘Arab Street’ Cultural Observation

February 16, 2011

Every now and then a current event – the sexual assault and beating of a young American reporter- (see below story) and a universally true cultural observation, come together in planetary alignment.  The quote I am about to furnish you with, was declared by a gentleman by the name of George Kennedy Young, a deputy […]
