Have you taken up the MCB’s generous invitation to visit 80 Mosques? It was devised so that Muslims can explain their religion to us.
But why not offer open, spontaneous visits? Spot-checks if you like. Seriously, what’s the good of a pre-prepared presentation, or ‘pitch‘, like on Dragons Den.
“Hello Dragons. My name is Abdel and I’m here today to show you why you need Islam. I want several million
conreverts and I’m offering nought percent of the business.”
We don’t want to be given the run-around, do we? Not like Hans Blix and those procrastinating weapons inspections. Fobbed off.
“No, you can’t come in today. It’s not convenient. Come back tomorrow when we’ve had a bit of a tidy up.”
Undercover Mosque. Who could forget.
For some reason we’re not subjected to Mehdi Hasan on the BBC as often as we used to be. I haven’t seen him on QT or TBQs recently, have you?
Maybe the BBC has noticed that he’s sub standard. Never mind, our loss is Al Jazeera’s gain. He has shows: “UPFRONT” and “Head to Head”. His interrogation technique is just up Al Jazeera’s street - childish, partial, and unresponsive.
Watch this “interview” with Israeli MK Tzipi Hotovely. Who does Mehdi think he is? Jeremy al-Paxman?
Funny thing is that that Marc Goldberg sees this differently.
“She (Tzipi Hotovely) has shot herself in the foot so many times that all he has to do is basically quote her statements back to her in order to make her and by extension Israel look like a bunch of land grabbing assholes”
Goodness me. I wouldn’t call ‘telling the truth’ “shooting yourself in the foot” - although it might seem that way if a) you don’t like the truth and/or b) you’re not sure what the truth actually is.
This blog lacks a women’s page. We’ll be giving more beauty tips in future. And, you know, celebrity gossip and fashion. Migrant-camp chic and so on. And asking questions on your behalf, such as: some voices on the radio are confusingly gender-fluid, but does it actually matter?
Did anyone watch Simon Reeve on BBC 2 last night? I did, and it was interesting.
But why oh why did he have to keep wearing that wretched keffiyeh?
Anonymous (one of the many) has brought a fascinating Al Jazeera related issue to our attention, see below.
One thing you can say for Al Jazeera, you do sometimes get a thorough discussion on that channel. They often broadcast extensive statements and arguments by Israeli speakers even though they are usually outnumbered by pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel speakers.
This is a fascinating exposé by Israellycool
Tommy Robinson, one of the organisers of Pegida UK, appeared on Al Jazeera this evening in a panel discussion. But this 3 minute clip includes the part Al Jazeera cut out. You’ll see why when you hear it. And all that follows a pretty pathetic trick the presenter tries to pull by switching the Koran for the Hebrew bible!
