1. This is what multiculturalism means to most people. And it is a positive thing. The Arabic commenter had a strong point when he spoke about Arab artists imitating the westerns styles, and now an American sings and plays more traditional Arab styles of music better than many or most locals. This really is enrichment and both ways. Culture like capitalism does not have to be a zero-sum game. If only Islam had not obliterated so many aspects of Arabic culture. Article here.
It stands to reason though that an American girl would have a strong shot at winning this competition. Since Islam discourages women (too soft a word I know) from participating in the arts, the percentage of woman who could be great in music would be low. Western children typically only need to show an interest in the arts to get all the resources they need to be as good as they can be or are prepared to work to be.
3. U.N. Human Rights: UN Declares ‘Year of Palestine’, Adopts 6 Resolutions on Israel; Rest of the World: 0
(I would like to cordially invite all the women who voted on this to go spend a month in Saudi Arabia on their own, then in Afghanistan, then in North Korea, then in Liberia, then see how much they would pay to spend the rest of their lives in Israel. Same for the men for that matter)
4. Yet another but better HD video of a dancing tard killing 2 wedding guests with his AK47 while dancing Gangnam style. Another brilliant argument for tard control.
(This is long overdue. I suspect artificial setting of metals for insidious reasons. I look forward to the results of this investigation)
(There are lots of great pundits and informed diplomats that have valuable opinions on the deal with Iran. But I am still waiting for a physicist to weigh in on it. And here is why. Watch this series of videos by a Physics Prof at Cal Tech.) ((I am having trouble finding those videos. If I can, I’ll restore it later tonight)
8. Here is a link to a video of utterly unspeakable abuse of an Ethiopian maid by her islamic Saudi employers. Clearly they view her as a slave in the worst possible way of viewing one. Civilized people would never allow a farm animal to be treated this way and one can almost define civilization by that fact alone. Many people in Canada have been jailed for far less cruelty to domestic animals. Watch at your own discretion. I saw a few seconds and that was enough for me.
Thank you M, Richard, Fjordman, all who sent in material. Still trying to catch up.
