(Yahoo)   If you can't stop yourself from sending voicemails that say "the only good Arab is a dead Arab" and "fark the Arabs... they will burn in hellfire," then perhaps senior U.S. diplomat is not the right career choice for you   ( news.yahoo.com) divider line

I'd better not apply for that job then...
 
2007-08-17 11:41:40 AM  
No, but a job at FOX news maybe perfect.

The real story here is that that IS considered diplomacy in Bush's White House.

What's his freerepublic.com handle?
 
2007-08-17 12:06:35 PM

If you really hate Arabs that much, why don't you join a contracting outfit and put your AR where your mouth is?

See i was wondering what his Fark Login was..

I mean according to tfa:

voice mails to officials the Arab American Institute, including its president James Zogby, when Israel was at war with Lebanese Hezbollah guerrillas in July 2006.

"The only good Lebanese is a dead Lebanese. The only good Arab is a dead Arab. Long live the IDF. Death to Lebanon and death to the Arabs," Syring said in a voice mail recorded at the institute on July 17, 2006. IDF stands for Israel Defense Forces -- the Israeli military.

"fark the Arabs and fark James Zogby and his wicked Hizbollah brothers. They will burn in hellfire on this earth and in the hereafter," he wrote in an e-mail to Zogby and another institute employee on the same day.


reminded me of one or two regular trollers here.

Now I also understand this guy getting canned for this behavior but indicted? That seems a bit extreme unless there is more to those messages threatening physical harm

Magorn: That seems a bit extreme unless there is more to those messages threatening physical harm

I believe leaving a message saying "the only good Arab is a dead Arab...death to the Arabs" with someone whom identifies themselves as an Arab is considered a physical threat.

I'm a fairly conservative guy.. this is way over the top and inexcusable. This guy shouldnt have a job that has anything to do with US Diplomacy.
 
2007-08-17 12:51:54 PM  
the diplomat had decided to retire.

With full pension, no doubt.
 
2007-08-17 01:28:31 PM  
He's getting indicted for this? How come he don't get first amendment rights same as liberals?

SkinnyHead

Because teh libruls won through their insidious Hollywood recruiting and subversion of the bible. Hurry up and gay marry.

/in your case, it'd mean finding another trollus horribilus to marry.
 
2007-08-17 01:53:27 PM  
Afternoon_Delight: I'd better not apply for that job then...

Because there's no hate like conservative hate?

SkinnyHead: He's getting indicted for this? How come he don't get first amendment rights same as liberals?

He made a threat against another person. That is why he doesn't have any first amendment rights.

icallhimgamblor: He made a threat against another person. That is why he doesn't have any first amendment rights.

I don't see where he actually threatened to harm anyone. Liberals around here always telling me that I should get burned up in a fire because they don't like my opinions on certain matters. I know it's just hyperbole, and not a real threat. Same with what this fellow said.
 
2007-08-17 03:33:37 PM  
He should run for President. I'd vote for him.
 
2007-08-17 03:34:28 PM  
Was that wrong of him?
 
2007-08-17 03:34:30 PM  
Now, we all hate Arabs, but sometimes you just have to be a little more tactful about saying so.
 
2007-08-17 03:34:45 PM  
I don't know, he sounds like the perfect ambassador to Saudi Arabia. At least he would bow down and sniff their asses every time one of them passed gas.
 
2007-08-17 03:35:04 PM  
Stay class Bush Administration.
 
2007-08-17 03:35:56 PM  
I think he was just quoting a Cure song.

""the only good Arab is a dead Arab...death to the Arabs" "

Religion of Peace.

DIAF.

If you don't think this is bad, try replacing every instance of "arab" in the transcript with "jew".

Then read it out loud with a german accent.

Hmmmn, personal phone call vs posting DIAF against an anonymous pseudonym.

Wow, I don't see the difference there at all.
 
2007-08-17 03:37:51 PM  
I couldn't resist.
 
2007-08-17 03:37:52 PM  
At least he knows who we're fighting over there.. The liberal media is just too scared to say:

"Our enemy consists if Islamofacists and Muslim Fundamentalists."

But if that was announced, they'd probably go burning down churches again..

Drawing a parallel between what is said in a casual thread site and what is said by a representative of the government is a pathetic cry for help:)
 
2007-08-17 03:38:30 PM  
Sounds like he went to the George Bush school of diplomacy!

/Thought you were gonna ask me about the pig.

Its only OK to say "death to America, death to Zionists, death to infidels," etc. Death to Arabs is not nice.

I was suprised to see the F bomb dropped in a Yahoo news article. I don't think I've seen that before.

Im betting on a Bush appointee. If not, I fear the mocking that awaits me.

Diogenes:

Really? But I thought Bush always gives the Saudis a pass, and that he should be going after them. This doesn't sound like that. I think you need to go back to the drawing board.

b...b...but the Liberal Media!!!

Syring served as a U.S. diplomat in the Middle East

Hmm, I think we have an answer to the "why do they hate us?" question.
 
2007-08-17 03:40:03 PM  
...as well as the mockery
/double damn!

Kind of like how black people can call each other the 'N' word and it's ok, but it's not if whitey does it.

My enemies also consist of Judeo-Christian facists and Christian fundamentalists but I don't hear that from the conservative media.

I would have used the term "sand nagger". That covers ALL the brown people, except the short brown ones that pick my lettuce, of course.

Naw, you're probably right.

Now, more than ever, we need a little Arab "That's Racist" kid.

Dang!

Should read, "wouldn't bow down and sniff their asses every time one of them passed gas."

How dare you insult our presidents decision making skills!!

What a warrior! What a brave man! He gave up everything to wage a mighty voicemail crusade against our enemies!
