    1. Are they all not the same person? Osama?

    2. Well the Osama in the centre is certainly the prettiest because he looks SO angelic in white, he might even be said to look kind and placid, a perfect example of a pacifist!

    3. All the Osamas will win because they have been using all these years to gently urge others towards their views, (ahem)

    4. They are ALL the odd ones BUT sadly they are not out!

    5. Together these Osamas have fostered a sense of solidarity amongst the people of Bahrain, they brought peace, prosperity and instilled a sense of tolerance amongst us all….. GODDAMIT, don’t you just love them? Heck I could hug them so hard that their brains pop out!

    Ps. Whats the prizes for all 5 correct answers? How will i collect mine?

    you get your own short white thobe, an 8 inch beard, and a lobotomy … plus, an automatic name change so that you too, can be part of the osama gang!

    if u dont like that – u can always go for the default price. A bottle of JD and life long tickets to see Nancy Ajram

    1, Ghandi, Martin Luther King, Jesus, Nelson Mandela, Pope Pious, Cat Stevens.

    2. Cat Stevens has a certain je ne se quoi, note the way tiny wisps of follicles gently sway away from his face highlighting his gorgeous eyes!

    3. Nelson Mandela ‘cos HE THE MAN!

    4. Cat Stevens cos he can sing songs of peace.

    5. They single handedly brought the thobe into fashion again, it’s this seasons MUST have!

    4. The first guy didn’t follow the rule of ‘if the hat fits, wear it!�

  12. anonymous says:

    Re(1): Quiz time

    Can I choose the colour of my thobe, it’s illegal for me to wear white? I would also rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy and I am allergic to 8 inch beards, can I just draw one on? I think I will go for the default prize then if thats okay, i am partial to a JD and nancy Ajram.

    1) They are all Stand-ins for ZZ Top?
    2) I just can’t make up my mind, the first guy has a look that would make Charles Manson the poster boy for the Nobel Peace Prize. The second guy is a double for Gimle from Lord of The Rings. The middle guy looks extremely docile and serene compared to the rest (The only reason the others could not out-do him was due to lack of financial support and a global network). The fourth guy looks like Don King with his head stuck on upside down. The fifth dude is PeeWee Herman trying out for a casting role of Ousama Bin Laden.
    3) They will not get re-elected, start saying that the elections were rigged. Then when no one listens to them anymore, they’ll wear Yamakas (Jewish Skull Caps) and start singing Hava Nagila, go on an exodus to israel and join a yashiva. After a year of trying to fit in, the Hasidic Jews turn against them and execute them for being too extreme and ultra religious, which says it all…Oy Vey!
    4) None, they are all part of the Borg collective.
    5) Highly catastrophic! If we do not counter them soon, we will all be assimilated as part of their collective.

    No 2 looks as if the thought has just struck him that someone somewhere in the Sudan might be happy this morning – and he doesn’t like it.

    No 3 looks like he’s trying to get a walk-one part in Mel Gibson’s Jesus film. Or maybe The Life of Brian.

    No 4 looks like he’s been propped up to a sitting position on the mortuary slab specially for the photograph.

    No 5 is trying to look normal in the hope no-one will take semen samples from his favourite camel’s arse.

    Round up the usual suspects: Reuters Oddly Enough is featuring a stunt in which a group of diners at a French restaurant are besieged by Adel Al-Moawdah and Jassim Al-Saidi Wannabees. Is this being reported inside Bahrain? How do Bahrainis feel about this? Why don’t these ‘activists’ just move to KSA nearby?

    Diners 1
    Morality police 0

    Apparently one of the diners registered his protest at having his meal interrupted by the morality police by taking the Islamist’s knife off him and repeatedly stabbing him in the chest with it.

  41. anonymous says:

    Mouwdah or Salman: spot the difference?

    In this case Jassim Al-Saidi and Adel Mouwdah were caught flat footed by Sheikh Ali Salman – who’s proving to be their mirror image on the Shia fundamentalist right.

    The Al-Wefaq Islamic Action’s leader addressed his brownshirts shortly after they attacked the restaurant in order to in his words “calm tensions”. After listening to his speech 200 hundred of Al Wefaq’s finest marched on Dana Mall in order to present their grievences directly to shoppers in the supermarket (and who knows maybe carry out a little looting on the side?).

    Fortunately the morality police were stopped by the official police this time.

  45. anonymous says:

    Re: Mouwdah or Salman: spot the difference?

    i’ll tell you what the biggest difference is … Al Saidi and Mouawdah are part of the system – they were elected into parliament. Ali Salman decided that he didn’t want to be part of the system – and stayed out of it. And boycotted. And went public about it. Except – when he realized that our beloved parliament are actually tackling some fundamental issues (Pension fund etc), he got a wee bit jealous. Who owns the ‘street’ now??? So – he decided to send a message in case people forgot about him. So – he sent in his brownshirts. And in case people didn’t get the message – what did Mr Brilliant do? He shows up at 1 am to ‘calm the kids down’. Excuse me, but if that isn’t an admission of guilt, I don’t know what is. And then – he goes public in the GDN saying that the kids were rioting because of constitutional and umeployment issues????

    Hello .. what do 14-16 year old kids know about either???? Second, why are they that young except for the fact that they cannot be tried as minors? Third, you cannot tell me that this was unplanned. Also, there is no coincidence with timing .. what with F1 coming up and all.

    This man does not give a hoot about Bahrain, the people of Bahrain, or the future of Bahrain. He wants power, and will use violence to get there. Al Wifaq had better decide where they stand on this issue and how they want to contriubute to a better Bahrain. The Governemnt has got to get its act together and increase their police force that has the right to arrest and punish. These kids should be made do to community service somewhere picking up garbage.

    What is happening in Bahrain is not a joke. Violence can and should never be condoned. I didn’t hear Ali Salman get up there and condemn the violence in any meaningful way. I didn’t hear him give ideas as to how these kids should be disciplined. I hear justification for what happened, an implicit comdoment of what happened, and a de facto finger to everyone on the other side ..

    We have to wake up and start fighting for the future of our country… if we leave it to guys like Ali Salman (sorry – but I dont have the heart to call him a Sheikh .. I don’t see anything religious or God loving about him) .. then we all know which direction we are heading. There are numerous people who constitute the opposition that have found their voices through productive means – Ali Salman should get off his ass and go start a paper, or try and influence the process from within Parliament, or try and get his brownshirts to care about issues like rape, domestic abuse and drug abuse that happens in the villages. Thats when I will call him a Shaikh. As for now? He is no more than a thug.

    And I guess you are all the followers and supporters of the Israeli regime who assasinated Sh. Yaseen today – i mean he has a beard. This must be a victorious day for you all.

    You should start a campaign to demand that Santa Claus shaves his beard off this Christmas just so he doesnt get mixed up for an islamist. He should move with modern times.

  47. anonymous says:

    Re: Quiz time

    I suppose this comment fits in with the beards’ world view that if you’re not with them you’re against them and might as well be Ariel Sharon – a logic that they’ve recently applied to commuters on the Spanish metro and office workers in the World Trade Centre.

    On the point about Sheikh Yassin, the guy was a disaster for the Palestinians and for perhaps the first time the Israelis have done them a favour, which is more than adopting the sheikh’s suicidal policies ever did. I note that none of the pious sheikh’s family were ever suicide bombers.

The world is not out to get you, not all of us are your enemy, you just have to calm down enough to get to know people.

    Re: Mahmooooooood? Where are youuuuuuuuuu?

    Thanks for the concern! I never knew I could be missed! 😉

    I have been really busy with our F1 installation and am at the track from around 7am through 10/11pm every day. I’m working out in the sun or going from one location to another so much so that I look like a panda now! Three tone head: with peeling sunburnt scalp, white where the cap goes and about 2/3rds of my head has gone black! My arms, due to short sleeved shirts, are white from the shoulder to half of my upper arm, everything else has turned black!

    Anyway… work goes on, we’re in the final stages of installation now, testing and commissioning comes next.

    Hopefully by next week I could write again, I’ve got so many I want to write about but not time, I get home and almost go to sleep in my clothes!

    Thanks for asking, much appreciated.

    Thanks for your kind regards. I was debating with you – pointing out where your logic gets you. You on the other hand despite saying that you want a debate, choose to ignore the points I’ve made and instead making claims that I’m “brainwashed” and have a “chip on my shoulder”. Your reasoning’s all over the place, pal – probably why you’re an Islamist recruit. Try again, and this time try and respond to the points I’ve raised.

  54. anonymous says:

    Re: What are you going on about?

    What points did you make?? I didnt see any points, i just saw an angry rant? I am by no means an islamacist but on the contrary I am an athiest. You dont initiate a debate by insulting people, thats not going to get you anywhere.

  55. anonymous says:

    Try reading what was said again, and if you don’t understand I’m sorry but can’t be bothered trying to explain it in espeically simple terms for you. Take it or leave it pal.

    And while you’re about it, why don’t you consider the logic of your call “that you don’t initiate a debate by insulting people”, when it was you my friend who suggested that I was “brainwashed” and had a “chip on my shoulder”.

    If you’re suffering from a headcold and just can’t clear the snot, then why not come down and breathe the clearing vapors of quality tear gas, lovingly prepared by Bahrain’s security forces!

    Yes folks, this wonderful spectacle is organized by our tireless Sheik “Damn that Yassin– he get’s all the press” Ali who will organize the youth to get in place on schedule and he will magically dissappear before your very eyes!

    When the excitement abates and there’s kids nursing bruised heads, broken arms and spitting out rubber-coated bullets, he will re-appear in a puff of smoke (when cameras can get him on tape) and beg the youth to ‘stop this madness’.

    Caught with his trousers down

    Morality police in Bahrain – Latest:

    A leading member of the Al-Wefaq Islamic Action has been arrested for committing an act of “immoral indecency” with a servant. Apparently the Al-Wefaq man was arrested after he starting going into the servant’s quarters of a neighbour’s house once the homeowner went out to work and the coast was clear. It seems he was caught quite literally with his trousers down.

    Richly deserved humiliation for a party that bases its appeal on telling other people how to live their lives and sticking their noses into other people’s business.

    Here’s a suggestion for Al-Wefaq’s brownshirts: if you want to impose strict moral codes on society, rather than riot outside Nancy Ajram’s concert or beat up Indian labourers, surely you’d be better off bringing your campaign of violence and intimidation directly to Al-Wefaq’s HQ.

    Moawda scores a 4, and stays because he’s spent so long distracting political issues with religious ones that no one is willing to jeapodize their spot in paradise by voting against so upstanding a “leader”

    OBL, scores a 7 (but that’s only because his status is legendary and closing in Che Guevara, he has the marketing “it”) He’s the odd one out because
    a- His bite really is worse than his bark
    b- His thobe actually touches the ground (at least when he wore thobes)
    c- The other four talk up a storm and no one gives a sh*t in Afghanistan, whereas OBL farts in Afghanistan and there’s a whole lot of sh*t in Bahrain

    Al Saeedi comes in with a 6, will be back in 06 (refer to Moawda).

    And the winner of your Wahhabi Bachelor Auction (with an 8,) is Mutawa, who will also be re-elected because he doesn’t look scary in the campaign posters.

    Dear PM,

    Mabrook! That was a great parody!

    I had seen the news-story on Tuesday night about the airliner being grounded, which brought all kinds of memories of a BA flight that was left on Dulles’ runway on Christmas eve a few years back. (something about Heathrow to Dulles…)

    Now they say that Yusuf was on the no-fly list (along with Ted Kennedy), because some of his zaqat went to terrorists (a la Haifa bint Faisal). Teddy’s situation has been cleared up, and the wife of Bandar Bush, I presume, is still living it up in McLean, VA.

    But then again, the senator and the princess never called Saddam Hussein a “Muslim Brother”.

    In any case, it gave the local TV reporters something to on Tueday night
