What Burkha?

leave a comment »

Burkhas get a lot of criticism but as Mike Jackson shows they are a uni-sex garment:

Pop star Michael Jackson was spotted out shopping in Bahrain wearing traditional women’s attire.”

Will the REAL Hamas Please Stand Up?

leave a comment »

The current agonising over Hamas is easy to cure!

Take a look at the Hamas Covenant and do a Ctrl-F then search for the word ‘Jew’

Or the Hamas Profile:

” HAMAS is a Palestinian Islamic organization established in 1987 during the first Intifada, and is an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Hamas was formed in 1987 with the objective of destroying the Zionist entity that occupies Palestine, and establishing Palestine from the sea to the river based on Islamic principles.”

Then sit and think about it, for a while

Galloway’s demise

leave a comment »

I am not a fan of voyeuristic TV, such as Channel 4’s Big Brother, but ridiculous spectacle of George Galloway in the House made me laugh. His nasty character was open for all to see, and we didn’t have to wait too long for that to appear.

As a public service, I present some amusing links on Galloway’s time in the Big Brother House

Update: The Scotsman, newspaper, now has a whole section on Galloway’s antics:

David Got Him Sussed

with one comment

David Aaronovitch’s comments on Galloway’s appearance in the Big Bro House are very amusing:


Watching him, you realise that Mr Galloway is what the American playwright Heathcote Williams called a “psychic imperialist”. He wants to be inside our heads, to colonise our minds. “A billion and a half Muslims,” he told Rula, “know who I am.” So, fishermen in the remote south of the Philippines speak about Mr George? It’s a fantasy, but a revealing one. He was the one who advised Saddam Hussein to give up WMD — “Look, I told him . . .”
