Life in Pakistan and Saudi

Isaac Schrödinger talks about life in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia during and after the Gulf War. Check this out:

[...] After we finished, I was walking back with one kid who out of the blue asked me a question. “Who do you think is going to win the war?”

“The US,” I said.

“Why do you think that?” he asked.

“Since the US is more powerful than Iraq and has sent such a large force across 8 time zones.”

“No, Saddam Hussein is going to win!” he shot back.

I didn’t like that answer and asked him to explain his choice. He gave an answer that I knew was not right but my nine year old mind couldn’t compute as to why.

“Because he is a Muslim,” he replied.

Hehehe... Yeah, that makes perfect sense! And the kid was right; Saddam did win the Gulf War!

One day, I overheard a conversation between my aunt and family. She had come back from a mosque. She told us about a foreign lady who came to teach birth control to women near the mosque. She said that the Westerners were afraid of Muslims. This talk of birth control was a scheme by the Westerners to keep the number of Muslims low in the world. I knew that this statement wasn’t right but kept my mouth shut. By the way, this aunt had seven children. I am sure that Western lady must have been petrified by her.

Yep, that makes sense too! It's all part of the master Imperialist Zionist Western evil plan!

~ Ahmad,
There's this weird vibe going through Arabic Nations, composed of equal parts Nationalistic
Beliefs and Conspiracy Theory that Arabs will conquer the world, destroy the West, impose Islam on the infidels, take over the U.S., etc. etc. and it always amounts to a big letdown. They lose wars after wars and implode with rage from the humilations
of their ineptitude.

Wow Ahmad! I read what you would do with your five minutes. Now, tell us what you REALLY think! (:

I'm thinking Ahmad should get a whole lot more than five minutes.....
