And how is it bad press?
<quoted text> A lot. Lebanese hairstylists (or at least the ones you see on TV) are known for their flamboyant appearances. Being gay is almost a stereotype for them.
We've been through this before. There is not now nor has there ever been a nation of Palestine. There is a place in the record books where some people build the world's largest knafeh but there is no nation to celebrate this acheivement. Further, there remains a very good chance that by unifying and demonstrating a shared national perspective, Palestinian Arabs will announce the beginning and end of the national project on the same day.

Flamboyant? It's typical, not stereotypical.

Missed it. But, I thought that shooting a 15 yr old in the mouth in front of his parents was an abomination and typical of radical Islam. Arming that trash is a big mistake.
I know. I read that story. This is expected when you bring people who are not Syrian and who don't give a crap about the Syrian people to fight a war that has nothing to do with them. These people fight for an ideology, not democracy, which was the main demand for the Syrian people when their uprising began.

I wasn't thinking it would be a fatwa or any organized effort. I just see potential for someone to be offended by a jihad-aged boy whose idea of taking up the struggle is to sing rather than fight.(plus, he has "product" in his hair)

I wish there was something to fight about with you, Young Man. At this time, I can't find anything. My balance must be off.:>)

Fascinating that Africans flock to the Apartheid center of the ME. You don't see them going anywhere else. Hey, Steel Plate Gaye, why is that?

>Though the physical conditions at the Israeli detention camp appear harsh, large numbers of refugees face much worse around the region.

Most of the 55,000 African migrants who made it to Israel over the past decade claim they were escaping forced, open-ended conscription in Eritrea or war in Sudan.<

Just trolling.

“Well I guess it would be nice
If I could touch your body
I know not everybody
Has got a body like you, mmm

But I've got to think twice
Before I give my heart away
And I know all the games you play
Because I play them too”

Peace ... piece by piece..(VOP's way..!!)

I hope anytime soon CNN, NBC and of course ..FOX, will have the chance to run a piece about a Syrian family of nine .. that indirectly did business with a kibbutz (agriculture technology shit). They fled Syria, took refuge in Turkey ... and with the intervention of Shimon .... that is, Shimon Peres, they were flown to Ben Gurion Airport.

For the last three weeks ... and until it will be safe to go back home, the Syrian family enjoy the hospitality of their suppliers..

It can get veeery confusing...
... the smoke and dust in the battle ground, makes it difficult to discern ... where are the friends and who is the enemy ...

Welcome..!!
Feel secure, relaxed .... and enjoy your stay.

I pray for that day when I will drive my nine years old Mazda to downtown Damascus ..for some shopping, dinner and perhaps a most needed paint job to the Japanese old b!tch..

Nice. I wish the act would impress someone on the other side but there are so many refugees that a family of nine could be disappeared quite easily. I hope their pause in Israel doesn't come back to haunt them. In Gaza, they'd be named collaborators and shot.

Someone who is Palestinian? Unlikely. This Assaf kid has been singing for years at weddings in the Gaza strip. Trust me, no one will touch him.

Tell you what, I'll take your word for this kid's safety but if you're trying to sell me on the idea that there's no one in the Palestinian Territories sick enough to kill him on religious grounds I'm not buying it. Case in point...those Salafist mofuggers who got a slapdown from Hamas when they insinuated that they weren't Islamic enough. They lost some men in the shootout at the Sheik's house but there's still a crowd of them running around honor killing their women.

Crazy people are everywhere. I'm sure you can find at least a dozen people in central Florida who would kill you because you're a Jew.

Yeah, no. People named Trayvon and Shaneequa get killed in Central Florida...usually because they are doing something wrong. Jews die in traffic accidents or of old age around here.

They are really stacking the deck against George. Let's hope that somebody has the balls, even though the jury is all fem. That judge is setting a path for an appeal, for sure. Can you spell BIAS?

They should have moved the trial to Canada or Guatemala. This is still too hot a topic around here so no matter the outcome, someone is going to practice civil disobedience and light something up. It would be good if they could time that for the fourth and kill two birds wi...oooh, poor choice of words. It would be nice if they could link the festivities around Independence Day's celebration.

All it takes is one. When we went in on this one, it was 5 to 1 for the Doctor. But, the old man on the jury insisted that we listen to the evidence and not make decisions on how they dressed or courtroom demeanor. Holding hands and having sex 10 times a day had nothing to do with anything, except envy. 3 women and 3 men. My notes were impeccable. Thank you very much.

I think you told me about this one - and you were the old man on the jury! And, imagine, you're a lot older now!

Knock 'em dead, George! ;)
