That was a short story, I still got bored by the end of it though.

"In a move sure to ease tensions, Louis Farrakhan to visit Middle East"...and tell them how much he hates Americans & Jews.
2002-04-03 09:56:06 AM  
Yep...THAT'LL have the tension-reducing effect
2002-04-03 09:56:41 AM  
Don't most Middle-East Muslims hate the N.O.I.????
2002-04-03 09:57:59 AM  
What an arse wipe. The Jews, Muslims and Christians all hate the wanker.
2002-04-03 09:59:36 AM

It's gone.

In related news: America tells middle east, "Keep him."
2002-04-03 10:05:38 AM  

just take off the trailing slash
2002-04-03 10:06:14 AM  
Well, it *MIGHT* ease tensions, if they take some of their aggression out on him!
2002-04-03 10:07:45 AM  
Having Farrakhan (devout muslim) mediate the dispute between israel and the Palestines is just as hopeless as having America (who gave all the weapons and bombs to Israel in the first place) do it.

"I believe only a spiritual person can truly achieve peace," he said.

Yeah. That's why Elijah Muhammed had Malcom X executed.

Farrakhan said he wants to meet with members of Hamas and Hezbollah, the religious factions that have claimed responsibility for violence and bombings.

"I want to hear it from their own lips why they do what they do," Farrakhan said.

Because they are TERRORISTS, you idiot.

Thanks Bad_CRC.

Farrakhan is an idiot. "Keep him." No shiat.
2002-04-03 10:17:22 AM  
Good for him! Maybe he'll realize how little true Muslims think of him. Maybe as a bonus they'll strap a bomb on him.
2002-04-03 10:24:10 AM  
I say ship him over there and leave his butt there.

Isn't this one of the signs of the apocalypse.

Hey... wouldn't it be nice if he got exiled there? Or maybe if he attended a suicide bombing seminar and accidentally blew himself up.

fun fun fun
2002-04-03 10:36:07 AM  
Farrakhan is a joke.
2002-04-03 10:39:54 AM  
Maybe he can use the other half of Arafat's ticket.

He is going to visit the new Nation of Islam UFO base in Libya.
2002-04-03 10:46:02 AM  
Arab leader: "You flew all the way over here to tell us that Jews/Israel/America/white-folks suck?! *smacks forehead* Mohammed on a moped man! My seven year old daughter can do that, and without all the credibility-crushing ufo/numerology crap. Tell you what, since you're here, if you really want to be useful then strap on this belt and detonator. Just steer clear of the Israeli troops we claim to be fighting and see if you can get to a nice cafe or shop. Thanks guy, you're all right."
2002-04-03 10:51:52 AM  
Farrakhan...what a farking idiot. Why is he even considered 'news' in the first place?
2002-04-03 10:54:52 AM  
He's considered News because people follow him.

Like Heaven's Gate

Like Hitler

Like David Koresh

Like Scientology

Like that guy who made everyone drink the Kool-Aid

Kooks with followers = scary
2002-04-03 11:00:32 AM  
The palestinians will be releived to know Farrakhan has the real info on Islam, the location of the mothership in orbit, and why the devils are keeping the man down.
2002-04-03 11:11:31 AM  
I do like those lil' bowties they all where...Farrakhan sorta looks like an afro-american version of Pee-Wee with that bowtie on

"Abraham Lincoln, the sixteenth president. Thomas Jefferson, the third president, and 16 and three make 19 again. What is so deep about this number 19? Why are we standing on the Capitol steps today? That number 19 -- when you have a nine you have a womb that is pregnant. And when you have a one standing by the nine, it means that there's something secret that has to be unfolded."

I think that says it all, folks!

Just jam him in Arafat's cage and throw away the blowtorch.
2002-04-03 11:55:52 AM  
SLAYERSWINE: No flames here, I agree with you.
2002-04-03 12:04:52 PM  
This is one of those stories that really touches the heart.
2002-04-03 12:20:21 PM  
Morons. There is no god. Put down your fairy tale books and start doing something constructive already. All of you.

"Mohammed on a Moped, Man!" I had to wipe coffee of of my monitor.

Thanks for the first good laugh of the day.

Farrakhan will calm the tension in the Middle East when he breaks out singing one of his lesser known but underrated Calypso tunes.

2002-04-03 12:43:12 PM  
yeeeahh. . Farrakhan is credible.
2002-04-03 12:58:28 PM  
"In a move sure to ease tensions, Louis Farrakhan to visit Middle East "

He just might be going over there to organize another Million Man March, composed, of course, of a million or more young Palistinian suicide bombers all marching into Israel in order to establish "Peace."

The Final Solution.
2002-04-03 01:36:08 PM  
Man, I hate that guy.
2002-04-03 01:41:43 PM  
Actually,I was at the march.Regardless of what you think,it wasn't about Farrakhan or his followers.Yes,the N.O.I. is nutty,but what the fark so are most people beliefs.As to the overt racism in the organization,at least they are out in the open about it.The media makes the N.O.I. look waaaay bigger than it is,hence ol' Louie and his brainsick followers ALWAYS appear like they will overtake the country.Please,he's lucky if he has a few thousand registered members.Oh,about the speech.Well,I had already headed back to my ride by then.I STILL have yet to hear the whole speech.No,I didn't go to pledge fidelity to the N.O.I.,I went because it was one of the few times black men were able to gather in this country without getting the fark kicked outta us.
2002-04-03 01:44:54 PM  
Now, this is gonna be good but I think dorky bowties are against Islamic rules.
2002-04-03 01:45:29 PM  
Phix-it: The kool-aid guy wsa Jim Jones of the Peoples Temple. I hope Louie goes. Then I will pray for the devine intervention of an Israeli sniper. Amen.

It looks like yesterday's "Worst Case Scenario" article from Time is getting closer to reality. From MSNBC:

"On the diplomatic front, Egypt -- which has a peace treaty with Israel -- announced it is suspending all ties with Israel except for diplomatic contacts. Egypt's Middle East News Agency quoted the country's information minister as saying Egypt would limit its ties with Israel to those that 'serve the Palestinian cause.' "

Light blue touch paper and retire to a safe distance!
2002-04-03 01:55:07 PM  
Handbasket? Check.
Sunblock? Check.
Road map to Hell? Check.

Follow me, kiddies, we're all on our way!
2002-04-03 02:26:01 PM  
Diogenes: "suspend all contacts except diplomatic"? Doesn't sound so bad to me. Diplomacy is still an option, but they get to tell the masses at home that they are doing something. Meanwhile researchers in Cairo are trying to figure out how years of hateful tirades against Israel in their state-run media might be affecting the mood of the populace.

The Time piece was a good one, but it doesn't seem likely to me. No islamic nation wants to get shredded by Israel, and "massing for action" then returning home without doing anything would be a p.r. nightmare.

This mess will only end when one side crushes the other militarily. If Israel does, they'll make a sovereign land offer and the P.A. will have to take it and start functioning as a nation. If the P.A. wins, every Israeli that isn't evacuated will be murdered. Its a little too late for midnight basketball programs to solve the problem.

This will get worse before it gets better. I'm just hoping that the worst is done and over with soon (as bad as the can be) instead of dragged on for 50 more years.
