Right.

So you weren't excluding or marginalizing women or in any way treating them like chattel? Now that's a distinction to be proud of.

Of course not. You obviously don't know anything about Palestinian society. We're not Afghanistan or Saudi Arabia, but at the same time we don't treat our women like sex objects. Our women can drive, work, go to school, and can virtually do everything a man can do. If you look at statistics, women attend college in greater numbers than men. Palestinian society is the closest thing to a moderate society.

As I rethink Ahmad's situation he'd be crazy to transfer to a CINO with 30 students. No matter what the ratio, he's not going to date those women. He has a dream and that dream includes horse shit so there's no stopping our boy now.
Look who's talking about horse shit; the cattleman. I don't mind horse shit. I grew up in a tiny village that depended on agriculture and farming as the backbones for it's economy, so I've seen all sorts of shit.

This shit, it's our common ground.

Dude, I know about Palestinian society as the most progressive of Arab cultures. I know how strong Palestinian women are. It's just that I get the same story from my Lebanese friends and there is only one "most progressive". You guys duke it out, I'll just pull your leg along the way

Lebanon is more liberal than some European countries. They even have a growing gay movement LOL. Nah, we're not even close to the Lebanese in that regard, and I hope it stays that way.

CLEVER BUNCH THESE SPANIARDS
I didn't know that one.....great idea....
WOW!



The Spanish may not be the world power they were prior to 1588, but they still have some good ideas!

This man is burying a dead pig.



Be sure you read the explanation at the bottom.





(Photos of a pig being burried.)





PEOPLE IN AUSTRALIA, CANADA, THE UK & THE USA NEED TO TAKE A LESSON FROM THE SPANIARDS!

In Seville, Spain, local people found a way to stop the construction of another mosque in their town.

They buried a pig on the site, and made sure this would be known by the local press.

The Islamic rules forbid the erecting of a Mosque on "pig soiled ground."

The Muslims had to cancel the project.



This land was sold to them by government officials.

No protests were needed by the local people -



and it worked!

How is it you can keep up with the vulgarities and yet completely miss the subtleties?
He's absolutely following in his Father's footsteps...and that's MISTER Snodgrass to you, hump-day boy.

So, young man, did his father ever run for Office, as Grand Poobah TRD, subtlety suggests? If so, I stand dejected. If not, well.....

There's glory in that too! If you frame it properly, the senior Lapid was in training.

Be nice to get there before the anticipated "response" to the Syrian convoy attempting to arm Hezbollah. If not, Israel's response to any serious "response" could force him to alter his condescending visit. But, I'm sure he's hoping for any excuse. Maybe Michelle will get a hangnail.

With all due respect to the Syrian President, he doesn't know whether to zhit or go blind. And Hezbollah...don't get me started. Those guys have gotten on the last good nerve of the Lebanese people, all they need to do to earn a roll in pitch and a dusting of goose down is bring on Israel's wrath. You might even say that by stopping the arms on the Syrian side of the border, the Israelis have extended Hezbollah's stay as next-door-neighbors.

Crazy, huh?

You'd think that wouldn't you? Except it's Arab World and the guy has a boatload of problems at home and is growing his already massive inferiority complex. He doesn't need to be slighted by a guest who needs him more than he needs any of the guests problems.

Favors aren't free in that part of the world and if you're asking your host to tiptoe to the edge of a treaty for you, you get the name right.
