Bad News: Davutoglu Wants “New Middle East”

When, in a recent speech, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu pledged to defend all faiths, “even Buddhism,” a Buddhist friend sent a message saying that: “I understand we were wrong to feel safe from the wrath of Turkish Islamists’ Sunni supremacy. Judging from how they wanted to crush every other faith, including different disciples of Islam, while faking to respect them I now worry about the Buddhist faith.”

Echoing the Buddhist friend’s fear and commenting on Davutoglu’s most recent remarks on the making of a new Middle East, an EU ambassador told this author in a telephone conversation: “I think we should be worried again.”

KING ARTHUR AND THE OLD UGLY WOMAN

James' Funnies

Young King Arthur was ambushed and imprisoned by the monarch of a neighboring kingdom. The monarch could have killed him but was moved by Arthur’s youth and ideals. So, the monarch offered him his freedom, as long as he could answer a very difficult question. Arthur would have a year to figure out the answer and, if, after a year, he still had no answer, he would be put to death.
The question?…What do women really want? Such a question would perplex even the most knowledgeable man, and to young Arthur, it seemed an impossible query. But, since it was better than death, he accepted the monarch’s proposition to have an answer by year’s end.
He returned to his kingdom and began to poll everyone: the princess, the priests, the wise men and even the court jester. He spoke with everyone, but no one could give him a satisfactory answer.

The Palestinians and Israeli Elections

So far, the Palestinians have shown little interest, if any at all, in the upcoming Israeli elections, slated for March 17.

But if there is one thing most Palestinians would like to see, it is the removal of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and right-wing parties from power.

The Palestinians, in many ways, seem to have joined the “Just Not Bibi” (Netanyahu’s nickname), or “Anyone But Bibi,” campaign launched by the heads of his rival Zionist Camp, Isaac Herzog and Tzipi Livni.

A Chinese Man In Australia

A Chinese man decides to retire and move to Australia after 50 years of living in Shanghai.

He bought a small piece of land near Mt Isa.

A few days after moving in, the friendly Aussie neighbour decides to go across and welcome the new guy to the region.

He goes next door but on his way up the drive-way he sees the Chinese man running around his front yard chasing about 10 hens.
Not wanting to interrupt these ‘Chinese customs’, he decides to put the welcome on hold for the day.

The next day, he decides to try again, but just as he is about to
knock on the front door, he looks through the window and sees the
Chinese man urinate into a glass and then drink it.

Not wanting to interrupt another ‘Chinese custom’, he decides to put the welcome on hold for yet another day.

A day later he decides to give it one last go, but on his way next
door, he sees the Chinese man leading a bull down the drive-way,
…pause…., and then putting his head next to the bull’s bum.

The Aussie bloke can’t handle this, so he goes up to the Chinese man and says, ‘Jeez Mate, what the hell is it with your Chinese customs?

I come over to welcome you to the neighbourhood, and see you running around the yard after hens.

The next day you are pissing in a glass and drinking it, and then today you have your head so close to that bull’s bum, it could just about shit on you.’

The Chinese man is very taken back and says, ‘Sorry sir, you no
understand, these no … Chinese customs I doing, these Australian
Customs.’

‘What do you mean mate’ says the Aussie, ‘Those aren’t Australian
customs.’

‘Yes they are, man at travel agent tell me,’ replied the Chinese man,
‘He say to become true Australian, I must learn to….. chase chicks,
….. get piss drunk, and …. listen to bull-shit.’

Amazing Footage

Japanese Surrender – 9-2-1945

This film is believed to have never been seen before, only shots of the surrender were known.

If you are a history buff you will enjoy this. General McArthur’s voice is a rarity in these old film clips.

This is a ‘must see’ for the WWII history buff or anyone interested in history.

This is an actual news reel film made of the surrender ceremony of the
Japanese to McArthur in Tokyo Bay in September 1945. Actual voice of the General. Never been shown to the general public before.

The “stills” have always been available but never the film itself.

Netanyahu Speech Coming Tuesday to be THE Speech

Beyond the Cusp

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is scheduled to give his speech to those of the entire Congress with the backbone and wits to attend what President Obama, his administration, the leftist politicians in the United States, and most embarrassing, leftist politicians in Israel and is willing to withstand the withering barrage from the leftist media which will hopefully be easily over four-hundred-seventy-five who sit through the entire speech. There is planned a show of great lack of significance to show disregard and insult for Prime Minister Netanyahu arranged by the Congressional Black Caucus who decided their ire would be best served if they interrupted THE Speech by noticeably walking out in the midst of THE Speech as a sign of the racist nature of THE Speech. The media has harped on THE Speech claiming it is designed to destroy the United States Israel relations as if President Obama’s wrecking-ball relations and…
