If you are reading this, I pray that Allah may bless you. My name is Saladin Chamcha. I am a humble Muslim living in Nigeria. My father, the Sultan of Haram, has been killed in recent government actions against believers of Islam. He has left 72 million dollars (USD) in various accounts throughout the country. I fear that the government will find these accounts and steal this money from my family. I am looking for a trustworthy broker to help me move these funds into a safe country. For your trouble, I offer 8% of the transferred amount (5.7 million dollars) as gratitude for your help.

Please contact me right away as I don't have time to lose!

My dad would always play me "A Salty Dog," great tune.

Beck jacked another good rift of theirs... got the tune in my head, but I can't recall the original lyrics over Beck's now haha.

Nevermind, that wasn't Procol Harum... it was Them, Beck jacked "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue" for Jackass.

It's funny because "Boko Haram" loosely translates as "white man science is forbidden".

Boko Haram means "Western Knowledge is Forbidden".  Or, more generally "Knowledge is Forbidden".

Boko = Books
Haram = Forbidden

Personally, I'd like to see every member of, and supporter of, Boko Haram stuffed into a silo and shown what a fuel/air device looks like up close.

Anyone remember the scene in "The Commitments" in which the keyboard player goes to Confessional, with the priest?

/"Forgive me father, for I have sinned"

//"Percy Sledge" etc.

Those poor oppressed Muslims in their ancient trading homeland.

Where is the UN and their Right of Return?

Surely!  We must all think of the poor rebels freedom fighters being bombed indiscriminately.

Why can't we just let them have what they want?!

No, of course not... it's about Africa.

No one wants to comment about them... the only reason this story even got green-lighted was because of the music reference.

Seriously though...

Nobody cares to discuss this war between blacks and arabs?   Two favorite groups to discuss... what gives?

Does there have to be a Jew or Caucasian somewhere in that ethnic soup for anyone to care???

LOL!  I didn't realize there was a 'PC rating'...  is that a new thing, like metachlroian count was in Star Wars Episode 1, whereas before it was just a mysterious 'force' that was felt?

/IMHO, blacks trump Arabs (typically Muslim in the region) since they have not oppressed others as much as they were by other colonial powers...

The winner will be China... that's who the winner in all this will be, since they actually CARE about TRADING with the region vs. the West, which has ignored Africa for 50 some years.

It's new now.

Yes, but a white who converts to Islam may be even rated higher than blacks or Muslims. The sum is greater than the parts, and in this case, even when one of those parts is a negative...  That'll disrupt your force.
