Fly me to the Moon & other "luminous"stories...

Can you relate to this ?
Whenever am feeling "nostalgic", I revert to my old time favorite songs. One of them is Frank Sinatra's "Fly me to the Moon." I just love that song. Do you remember the lyrics ?
"Fly me to the moon, let me play among the stars, let me see what spring is like on Jupiter and Mars..."
Must be great living on the moon. A lunatic ? Don't be quick to judge.
Today I stumbled on a piece of news traced back to the Jerusalem Post. Hold your breath and hear this : Israelis are rushing to "buy" (makes a nice change huh!) plots of land on the Moon.
Eretz Israel is not content with having colonized and illegally appropriated Palestinian Land, thus rendering millions refugees or in Ghettos, nor is it satisfied with it's ever expanding map from the Nile to the Euphrates. Now it has decided to take over the moon too.
Next thing you will hear is that being the "chosen" people , they will take over The Divine throne as well, claiming it to be theirs.

Want to hear another "luminous" story ?

Someone - thank you Falastin - drew my attention that my name and blog were mentioned in Haaretz, another Israeli newspaper.
Finally, I have reached fame and glory in the Zionist press !
Am I lucky or am I lucky ?
Wait, don't get over excited. Hear what they have to say first.
Referring to my post dedicated to the President of Iraq Saddam Hussein, Zvi Ba'rel in an article entitled "And now the fight for his Memory" stated that :
"Anwar is a Saddam denier- reported my Egyptian friend who is in charge of monitoring blogs reacting to Saddam's Execution."
Then the "friend" advised his Israeli "friend" Zvi Ba'rel saying :"She's no better than all the Holocaust deniers. People like her poison the public. The memory must be shaped quickly, so Saddam will not be remembered on the same level as Saladin or Gamal Abdel Nasser."

Zvi Ba'rel from Haaretz , please tell your "egyptian friend"... No wait. He is the one monitoring the blogs. I will address him directly.

Dear Egyptian "friend" of Israel,
Seems you have joined your President's belly dance.
This latter just stated today, rather regretfully, that Saddam has been turned into a "martyr". Join efforts with him and erase his memory before it "poisons the public".
But hey, got news for you. The public you are referring to stretches way beyond your imagination.
I am going to help you with your "mission " as a "rapporteur/ friend" of Israel, since you have not been very assiduous in your endeavor.
Am only saying that because the list I am about to provide you , thus facilitating your task, is going to be hard work for you.
Please note my generosity. After all am not getting paid for this nor am I receiving a commission from Haaretz .
Ok, get your pen and paper ready and make sure you don't miss out on any names here.
The "Saddam Deniers aka Holocaust deniers" the way you associated us, are many. So don't get lazy in monitoring them. Ok? Good boy.
Let us start with a couple of blogs since those seem to be your speciality. Note for instance.
The writer and film maker Gabriele Zamparini
The writer Malcolm Lagauche
The researcher Felicity Arburthnot
The professor of History John F.Robertson.
The none other but Israel Shamir
Another writer Robert Dreyfuss
A lawyer Curtis F.J.Doebbler
A former Ambassador K.Gajendra Singh
A sample of Australians LowFlying Angel by Janice and Matthew Hoffman's Saddam Hussein Blog.
Now, let me give one sample of an Iraqi blog, Truth about Iraqis then check out his links to other Iraqi blogs.
Also we have Palestinian Blogs . Remember those, the Palestinians? The rightful owners of Palestine. So check this out Palestine Free Voice.
And last but not least keep checking out this web site
Will not even mention newspaper articles, nor the thousands of Iraqis, Egyptians, Tunisians, Morrocans, Palestinians, Jordanians,Lybians,Algerians, Lebanese,Mauritanians, Indians, Nepalese, Pakistanis....who took out to the Streets and shouted Saddam Hussein is a Hero.
A Hero, because he REFUSED American/Israel Hegemony.
Oh yeah, he is the true poisonous Arab.

So Egyptian "friend" Are we ALL Saddam deniers? Are we all akin to holocaust deniers?
Come now, push it a little further with the help from Haaretz and call us Anti-Semites .
Careful though, I might unleash Gilad Atzmon, the jew, with his saxophone.
I might even ask him to play me " Fly me to the moon." Surely you and your friends would not want that.

I think I have given you enough material to "monitor." I have been way too generous with you.
Am no belly dancer. Can't shekel my hips - sorry meant, shake it to the left, nor dollar it - sorry meant, draw it to the right.
Do forgive my unintentional slips of the tongue. Blame it on the full moon.

Ok, where was I ? Right. Frank Sinatra - Fly me to the moon.
Do you know the rest of the lyrics? So it goes..... on Jupiter and Mars ... in other words , Baby kiss other words please be true.

P.S. Egyptian "friend." Do tell them to stop hacking me. I promise I will belly dance for you. How much ? Will American Express do ?

Matthew, Hello.
Your name was promptly corrected on my blog. I realized the mistake after I re read the post. Sorry about that.
I think your idea of a "neutral" blog is a good one. Keep it up.
