He's so groovyThe Washington Post reveals that

Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh Saturday accused Israel of trying to divide Palestinian ranks as Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat’s health deteriorated.

Above and beyond the obvious and well documented divisions amongst various Palestinian factions and clans, I have but one question.

Who gives a rat’s ass what Yemen thinks? Last time I checked Yemen was a country full of khat junkies and a wholly owned subsidiary of Hunt Petroleum. “President” Ali Abdullah Saleh, who’s never heard of a conspiracy he couldn’t blame on Israel, should just STFU already, continue chewing on his khat while quietly collecting his residual checks from the oil people.

  • Maybe this is just me talking, but chewable speed and hookah parties sound like a lot of fun. Even the kids can get in on the fun! It’s like a Flintstones vitamin and a benzedrine inhaler all rolled into one exciting little plant.

    Saleh’s probably just upset he doesn’t have any more of us to pick on since Operation Magic Carpet. Maybe he needs to up his dosage.

  • I only wish it were true that Israel had any ‘plan’ at all for where it wants to go. How dare he accuse us of long-term planning!

  • Important to note that this is the Washington Times, a Moonie publication, reprinting a UPI article, not the much more respected Washington Post.

  • I like it when you say ‘STFU’, CK. One more thing: Malawach hu akbar.

  • As you can tell by my postings, my world-knowledge runs on the superficial side, a la pop-culture and…well, dassabout it.
    But, T_M, do explain…the Washington Times, a Moonie publication?

  • MMmmm… like no kidding eh? Now why doesn’t anyone post a good recipe for Malawach? Malawach hu akbar indeed! Brakha can’t help because Malawach is a Yemenite thang and we’re Moroccan. So how about it? Can anyone help?

  • The Washington Times and United Press International (UPI) are owned by the “Rev.” Sun Myung Moon of the Unification Church. Those guys are a cult, commonly referred to as the Moonies. Just so you know. And Alli? Your posts are awesome – no need to make excuses!
