Elohim YishmorSo I was perusing Jordanian blog Mental Mayhem when I came across this video called Affliction Day by Amin Matalaqa, a Jordanian American. Seems our peoples have much in common, including an all abiding hatred of Michael Bolton. Sadly, Michael, née Michael Bolotin, is a member of the tribe, but that does not make him Jewlicious. In fact, his awful singing and his wholesale cooptation of Blues (and now Opera???) standards puts him in the running to be the next anti-christ or something terrible like that. In any case, enjoy the video and note Amin’s warning:

The opinions expressed in this film are genuine. Michael Bolton music is harmful to children, the elderly, animals, pregnant women, and people from Jordan.

And anyone with any modicum of taste Amin.

  • Hey, thanks for the mention of my movie. Maybe Michael Bolton can unintentionally bring peace to the world through his music.

  • That’s it! Blast the Middle East with Bolton music until they scream uncle and agree to compromise!
