Loving Your Husband

12There was a group of women gathered at a seminar on how to live in a loving relationship with your husband.

The women were asked, “How many of you love your husbands?”

All the women raised their hands. Then they were asked, “When was the last time you told your husband you loved him?”

Some women answered today, some yesterday, some didn’t remember …

The women were then told to take their cell phones and send the following text to their respective husband: “I love you, sweetheart.”

Then the women were told to exchange phones and read the responding text messages

Here are some of the replies:

1. Eh, mother of my 5 children, are you sick?

2. What now? Did you crash the car again?

3. I don’t understand what you mean?

Egypt’s Top Islamic Authority Bans ‘Noah’

Egyptian Streets

The Arc as depicted in the upcoming film starring Russell Crowe as Noah The Ark as depicted in the upcoming film starring Russell Crowe as Noah

Upcoming blockbuster Hollywood film ‘Noah’ starring Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins, and Emma Watson has been prohibited from screening in Egypt and the Arab World.

According to the film’s website, Russell Crowe stars as Noah in the film “inspired by the epic story of courage, sacrifice and hope.”

The film’s disclaimer states that “The film is inspired by the story of Noah. While artistic license has been taken, we believe that this film is true to the essence, values, and integrity of a story that is a cornerstone of faith for millions of people worldwide.”


However, Egypt’s top Islamic body, Al-Azhar, has declared that portraying a prophet “contradicts the stature of prophets and messengers…and provokes false visualizations [of the messengers].”

Al-Azhar added that it specifically prohibits the screening of a film which characterizes Noah…

Good News Friday

Anne's Opinions

Another week has flown by and it’s time for my next Good News Friday installment.

My first item for this week comes from Israel’s much-vaunted bio-medical sector. Tel Aviv University researchers have found a new way to fight ovarian cancer:

… Prof. Dan Peer of Tel Aviv University’s Department of Cell Research and Immunology has proposed a new strategy to tackle an aggressive subtype of ovarian cancer using a new nanoscale drug-delivery system designed to target specific cancer cells. He and his team have devised a cluster of nanoparticles called gagomers, made of fats and coated with a kind of polysugar. When filled with chemotherapy drugs, these clusters accumulate in tumors, producing dramatically therapeutic benefits.

The objective of Peer’s research is two-fold: to provide a specific target for anti-cancer drugs to increase their therapeutic benefits, and to reduce the toxic side effects of anti-cancer therapies. The study was published…

The News AIPAC Will Not Hear From Netanyahu

Beyond the Cusp

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is currently in the United States where he met with President Obama where it is assumed he was heavily pressured to announce and enact a building freeze and anything else that Abbas whines and demands while President Obama hurries to satisfy. Netanyahu will then address the AIPAC Conference where he will avoid giving any news that would be overly depressing while reaching extremes to sound a positive and hopeful picture. Where the Prime Minister might recount about some of the terrorist acts suffered by Jewish residents, especially those living beyond the Green Line but will he also mention the spread of terrorist attacks on Jews in Jerusalem and even of late in Tel Aviv. Will the Prime Minister speak of the rock attacks and the fact that in too many incidents there have been infants and children below four years old with at least one fatality…

Obama’s fantasy based foreign policy is untenable in our dangerous world.


Life in a world of fantasy can often be pleasant for small children.
For adults, it is far more dangerous.


On March 2nd, the Editorial Board of the often left-leaning Washington Post published an editorial titled President Obama’s foreign policy is based on fantasy. It was not written by a “right wing nut.” According to a sidebar,

Editorials represent the views of The Washington Post as an institution, as determined through debate among members of the editorial board. News reporters and editors never contribute to editorial board discussions, and editorial board members don’t have any role in news coverage. [Emphasis added.]

The editorial notes, among other things,

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could…

Inaccurate map used to illustrate BBC reports on Klos-C weapons interception

BBC Watch

On March 5th an article by the BBC’s diplomatic correspondent Jonathan Marcus titled “ Israel’s clandestine battle with weapons smugglers ” appeared in the ‘Features & Analysis’ section of the BBC News website’s Middle East page. KlosC Marcus art

The article is obviously intended to provide audiences with background and context to the incident earlier on the same day in which Israeli naval forces seized a ship transporting Syrian-made missiles from Iran to Sudan, with their eventual destination being the Gaza Strip.

On the whole, the article is both accurate and informative but it is marred by one feature. As Jonathan Marcus correctly notes:

“In the March 2014 case – unusually – the Israelis say that the weaponry actually originated in Syria from where it was flown to Tehran.

It was then put on board the Klos-C at the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas.

From there it went to Um Qasr in…

THE MEDIA: Profound shock may lead to Enquiry and investigation so we can all be clear about the need for cool heads and crackdowns, not hotheads needing cold baths

The Slog

Here is the news as it happened this Thursday on CNNMNBBCITVSky.

Everyone in Westminster was profoundly disturbed today. The Prime Minister in particular was profoundly shocked, while the Foreign Secretary said he was profoundly sorry. In Brussels, it was Thursday and so everyone was profoundly concerned about actions that it found totally unacceptable, while in Washington where it was still Wednesday, the President warned that there would be serious consequences. In Australia, where it will soon be tomorrow, the Premier fell deeply silent after being asked about whether he was profoundly incompetent.

The Home Secretary said there would have to be an enquiry, or perhaps a Royal Commission. In Paris, the UN said a Conference was vital. In Brussels, officials said there would be enquiries, reports, investigations and conferences with lots of freebies, but no discussion of unsigned EC accounts would be necessary, as after 19 years this was now…

At the End of the Day

The Slog

There is something about builders which, once they’ve arrived, results in the early departure of the householder from the premises. The opening gambit is to switch off as much electricity as possible, followed by the destruction of all walls and toilets. The final straw is the plumber’s decision to cut off the water supply before dismantling the central heating system….and of course – purely for safety reasons – all the gas. Then it’s a question of either you leave, or you become a Lancet feature special by dying from dehydration and hypothermia at one and the same time.

Luckily, I took delivery of my motor home yesterday. On taking delivery of anything in France, you are immediately exposed to repetitive strain injury resulting from all the forms that must be signed. This is especially true of adopting a motor vehicle.

My motor home is (before the politics of envy kick…
