With so many crucial differences in politics, religion, culture, history, national narrative, etc., it seems that finding peace in the Middle East is an impossible task. What could possibly bring the masses together?
Well, two of my friends in Tel Aviv have stumbled upon the answer. Men. The hot, olive skinned, strong men of the Middle East and our appreciation for them. They find that “these men are so trim and hot and sexy that the Middle East cannot afford to lose even a few of them.”
From their Mission Statement:
Mideast Piece aims to unite people around the world through shared adoration of that most sacred and bronzed of species, the Middle Eastern man. Whether Muslim, Jewish, Christian or Druze, these desert men are more valuable than any Saudi oil well.
As greater appreciation for the Middle Eastern male develops, we are confident the international community will intervene to preserve and protect this endangered species from destroying itself (and, on occasion, others). There are too many unattractive, pale people on Earth for the world not to make the entire Middle East a natural reserve of hot men, complete with admission fee, monorail, and â€“ of course â€“ petting zoos.
Ultimately, the blog will include writers from several regional countries, making it the only pan-Middle Eastern blog focusing on gay men, though I’ve been assured women are also welcome to enjoy the photo collection.
