Oprah will end as a show, and come back as a NETWORK. Is there no God?

After an Israeli company won an award for making the best prepackaged falafel, a lebanese man is waging a crusade to declare the falafel as an arab property. And they wonder why no one takes them seriously!

A saudi TV channel launched a program that discusses issues of girls and female university students called the secrets of girl, with all three presenters wearing the full Niqab. That’s one way to solve their body image issues I guess!

The Egyptian government creates a code for ethical cell phone use. Heheheheheheheheheheheheheheheheheehehehehehehehehehehehe. Sorry, the words Egyptian government and ethical should not be in the same universe together, let alone the same sentence.

One word: academize!

  1. Wow now you mention the word, crusade, when an Arab use it. Where were you when J. W. Bush decided to wage a crusade on the middle east? I guess you don’t mind a crusade with actual weapons and real victims as long as they are Muslims.(PS what’s falafel Hebrew for ? ah right right it’s Arabic)

    and I guess you consider every female that doesn’t show you her body as one who’s having image issues right ? What is it with you people, why is it so difficult for someone who never stops singing bout democracy and freedom suddenly find himself in front of someone who is different.
    Seriously i don’t hear Muslim fanatics complaining about a woman bikinis and short skirt, as much as I hear your average western wannabe blabbing about hijab and niqab, GROW UP

  2. Ahmed, I just looked it up and it seems Falafel has non-Arab Egyptian roots. So, Arabs and Muslims got no more right to it than Jews do. Sorry! You wanna claim ownership you gotta prove you are a non-Arab Egyptian. Otherwise you’re just another wannabe.

  3. PS, Ahmed: You don’t find it a bit odd that a show that is expressly for and about young girls and their issues is hosted by 3 women wearing black tents? I suppose you’d be OK with such a show if it was hosted by 3 women wearing thongs then? Since you brought the “bikini” comparison into it? It’s manipulative and exploitative, either way.

  4. Falafel: Well, the Greeks have successfully obtained the rights to the Feta-name for cheeses – guess this isn’t much different, although “arab” is a much less defined term than “Greek”…

    Womens’ show on Saudi tv: Any show that actually looks into womens issues on national Saudi tv is a step forward, no matter the ridiculousness of the presentation.

    Ahmed: There are “good” crusades and there are “bad” crusades (as per the modern definition – A vigorous concerted movement for a cause or against an abuse). I guess your definition differs from mine, seeing as how you see the point in trying to refuse jews the right to call their product “falafel” as reasonable, while condemning the removal of a dictator and the attempt to stop the proliferation of terrorism while promoting democracy and human rights… Of course, muslim societies in general automatically think of crusades in the old sense, meaning a military action against muslims based on religious differences, and are re-interpreting it to mean any action that happens to involve muslims on one side of a conflict.

    “Seriously i don’t hear Muslim fanatics complaining about a woman bikinis and short skirt”

    No, you just see them enforcing a ban on pain of death. The point is not the freedom to choose the hijab/niqab/burka/whatever; the point is the LACK of freedom to choose anything else!

  7. Sorry for the triple post – the system took ages to update…!

    That’s not necessarily true, Adam! What would you think of a show that claimed to be addressing male homosexuality and was hosted by a mullah, a rabbi and a Catholic priest? Are they addressing male homosexuality!? You bet! :o

  9. :D THis post made my morning. Oprah always reminds me of you (cause you remember Oprah-is-my-hero girl!)

  10. Craig, I see what you’re getting at, but really… it’s three women talking about women in their own society; it’s doubtful they’ll actually make matters worse. At least Saudi men are hearing about women and their issues – quite an improvement on the 80′s, when women were not seen or discussed on Saudi tv, period. I’m not clapping my hands, no. However, I see slow but definite improvements…

    A few weeks ago, I actually had a young Saudi woman on a tour of my workplace; she was an architecture student, who was working for Henning Larsen Architects, who are making a new “Science City” in Riyadh, and she was in Denmark for 3 months to see how things work here. She showed up in western clothes and with only a loose scarf around her head, hair still showing. Goes to show that even the ultra-conservative Saudis can take it a step down when not hounded by the religious police. As a side-note, her parents were in the country with her, so it’s not like she was here all on her own… ;)

    “threatens social peace and security” – give me a break!

    “Meanwhile, a group on social networking site Facebook opposing her concert has attracted nearly 10,000 members.” – I wonder how many tickets she’s sold… ;)

  12. The evil Jews are right – the tameya (falafel) is not ‘Arab’ but it’s not Jewish either.

    Tameya was, like most things, invented by the Egyptians. Not the ‘Arab’ ones but the real ones, ya know, the Pharaohs….

    “Originally made with fava beans in Egypt, the dish later migrated northwards, where chickpeas replaced the fava.[1] It may originally have been invented by the Egyptian Copts as a fasting dish.”

    And so both sides are right. It is neither an ‘Arab’ nor Zionist dish but Egyptian.

  13. Packaged Tamiaa (falafel) yuck!!!! it is Egyptian of course!!!!!

  14. Since there’s no Felfela in Vancouver I have to resort to powder and it rocks! lol

    Why do Muslims find the word crusades so offensive? The whole purpose of the crusades was to throw the arabs out of Europe who had gone in as invaders in the first place.

    Can you imagine how backward the world would’ve been if Europe remained Muslim? Scary thought…..all you have to do is compare Morocco and Spain. They’re separated by 8 miles yet worlds apart.
