The One’s visit!

So…here we are… a few hours before Obama's historic visit to Cairo, and I am one of the few Egyptians who has got an invite to see him, and.. ehhh… I am not that excited.I mean, I will go see him, but I can't say that I am enthused about it. Maybe because I know [...]

On Obama’s vsit to Egypt!

So, the one has chosen the land of the Nile to make his appeal to the muslim world, choosing it over options like Saudi (the birthplace of Islam), Jordan (Hey America, we will do anything for you to like us), Turkey (The Secular Muslim people, and part ally who likes to put its nose in [...]

Obama’s war on terror

His people are using Bush's people tactics. Anybody surprised? Me not!

McCain on Twitter

Oh, John, you should know the answer to your question by now!

FBI cuts ties with CAIR

Why they had any in the first place, beats me.

Embarrassing shit!

Who is Muhammed Al Bughdaddy and why is he allowed to write in AlMasry AlYoum? Conspicuously, no one can deny that Obama is a strong and charismatic president, who stepped into the White House with a highly unprecedented number of votes from Americans who love and respect him. Though, the Zionist lobby will indefatigably grope [...]

Condi is the first Black President

She was yesterday, between 12:00 noon and 12:01 Pm. And then Obama got sworn in.

About that Inaguration..

..Is anybody else dissapointed that when Ted Kennedy collapsed, he didn't collapse on Robert Byrd? Am I alone here?

The origin of “Israel controls America” conspiracies

Usually from stories like these: The United States, Israel's main ally, had initially been expected to voted in line with the other 14 but Rice later became the sole abstention. "In the night between Thursday and Friday, when the secretary of state wanted to lead the vote on a ceasefire at the Security Council, we [...]

Israel: A Strategic Liability For The US?

Here is an interesting debate between National secuirty experts in the National Journal online, over whether or not Israel poses a startegic liability to the US in terms of global policy. For me it's interesting because middle-easterners always claim that the reason why they dislike the US foriegn policy is that it's Pro-Israel, which I [...]

Rick Warren and Bashar AlAssad

Christopher Hitchens, there to remind you, that there are good reasons, other than his anti-Gay views, why Obama's choice for Inaguration's pastor is a bad one, such as his relationship with Bisho. The democrats probably won't see a problem with the trip he made or the meeting he had, since they are all about talking [...]

A brief History of Caroline Kennedy

And people made fun of the Sarah Palin resume! Check this doozy out!

Caroline Kennedy is the frontrunner?

So, I guess there is such a thing as american royalty and nepotism: How else would you otherwise justify that Caroline Kennedy is the front-runner to replace Hillary Clinton? What did she do, besides being the daughter and sister of two dead american darlings? And don't tell me she wrote a book, ok? Joe the [...]

On the shoe throwing Incident

Three thoughts: 1) Bush has some seriously fast reflexes for an old man. 2) You notice that Malki did not move or budge throughout the whole incident? He wasn't exen startled or shocked. Check out the Slideshow to see for yourself. 3) The thrower of said shoe, Muthathar al Zaidi, a Baghdadiya reporter who is [...]

Obama Cartoons in arabic newspapers

Ta3beer has a collection of Obama cartoons from arabic newspapers. Some of them are negative:   Some are appallingly racist    and some are positive and self-critical at the same time:   American Obama –His father is an African migrant who abandoned him in his childhood. –A minority lawyer who is active in human rights [...]

Obama and smoking in the White House!

Come on, at least let the man smoke in the Oval Office. I mean, it's not like he is into cigars.

Jindal won’t run in 2012

The GOP's new poster boy is way smarter than those who run the GOP, and he just proved it by stating that he won't run in 2012. He is giving himself time to prove himself, and he knows that the american public is ready to forgive Obama anything and everything for his first 4 years [...]

Bailout logic

So, let me get this straight: You approve, without review, almost a trillion dollars to bail out the financial companies who created this mess to begin with, and who need the money to cover their bad mortgages. That, you have no problem with. But when the Car industry, whose existence fuels almost 3 million jobs, [...]

Where do we go from here?

Watching the news channels in the US this morning, I am both amazed and amused by their inability to deal with the Obama win. It's like the old song lyrics go: "The Battle is done, and we kinda won, so we sound our victory cheer. Now tell me, where do we go from here?" CNN [...]

The speeches

The McCain concession speech was gracious and classy, while his crowd was anything but that. The McCain supporters booed hard whenever the name of Sarah Palin was mentioned, even as she seemed visibly shaken and in tears. While I do understand that emotions did run high in this election, and that McCain supporters really didn't [...]
