The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

As the World Burns

It's nice to see the Associated Press be so vigilant in guarding the piety of the dictatorial murderers peaceful combatants of the Gaza Strip. I do question their unfortunate choice of words, though:—Can you imagine the outcry if the Associated Press ever referred to someone like Pat Robertson as being a "favorite Christian hero" in any of their news reports?

Palestinians watch the Syrian soap opera 'Bab el-Hara,' or 'The Neighborhood Gate' on a big screen after breaking their fast at a cafe in Gaza City, Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2007. Palestinians blasphemously speed through prayers to catch the beginning of the show, and barely tuned in to watch favorite Arab hero Hassan Nasrallah of Hezbollah speak live—because the timings clashed. 'Bab el-Hara' - The Neighborhood Gate—has dazzled Palestinians during this Ramadan television season, a month where Arab satellite channels compete to broadcast rating-winning shows to audiences after a large evening meal to break their daylong fast.

Oh, by the way, it might be helpful to point out that the title to this post is a play on the name of the popular American soap opera. I'm not actually trying to say anything about the world burning. Outside of Amsterdam, that is.
