Gotta agree with Roba on that one!

Give Ghaza to Egypt?

Drima thinks he found the solution to the current crisis, which is to give Ghaza to Egypt, West Bank to Jordan, and call it a day. I am sad to say that Drima is more confused than a blind man in an orgy if he thinks such a solution should even be put on the table. And [...]

Huffington Post stealing content

For all of you who are unemployed, on your way to being unemployed, or are just suffering from serious job insecuirty, I give you the Unemploymentality [...]

On Melancholy

Forsooth seems to be suffering it, big time, and it's been affecting her blog output: …it's just that I have been wondering, for several months now, why on earth anyone would want to read this thing.

Marxism 2008

You know, I wasn't looking for trouble, just minding my own business, until I stumbled upon this video, of our very own Hossam el Hamalwy giving the opening speech at the Marxism 2008 conference in London. Hossam, with a palestinian Kuffiah around his neck of course, gave a rousing 10 minutes speech about the different [...]

BlogIraq is dead

A light turns out in Baghdad! God be with his family and friends!

The one sentence story

An entire blog dedicated to it! I should add one!

The Kabobfest inner conflict

In what could be Kabobfest a hoax (and god knows they are not above it), an ex-Kabobfester started an anti-Kabobfest website, even creating an Urban Dictionary entry on the definition of Kabobfest: amalgamation of pseudo-bohemian, kuffiyeh wearing, proto-typical non-conformists who identify as being either Arab or Muslim-friendly within a post-9-11 context and sit around all [...]

Leilouta is back and funny as ever

Wikipedia is right!

Your Prayers needed

For a very dear friend of mine, who just relapsed into Heroin addiction. She was off of it for more than a year and a half, and just recently relapsed very badly. She will need all the emotional support she can get, so please, give her the best you could.

Youtube suspends Wael Abbas’ account

Youtube has suspended the account of Wael Abbas – which contained the the egyptian police brutality and torture videos- because there were apparently too many complaints and flags from users- who are not members of the egyptian government or state security, of course- who have deemed the videos inappropriate and offensive. Youtube immediately took action, [...]

On New Muslims

Lou Lou had an interesting experience: …but why do some new Muslims feel the need to denigrate their former religion & culture & sometimes their own family & upbringing? Why do they change their names to Arabic names? Don't they realize that the majority of Muslims in the world are not Arab and do not [...]
