The Arabist

By Issandr El Amrani and friends.

fun with barbed wire

So the clash of civilizations turns into a bun-fight over a handicapped parking space.

In this corner we have the Brotherhood and their new “just say no to Denemark [sic!]� campaign (just when we could get decent butter again!), while over in the far corner (but not far enough for my taste) we have the none-too-bright Christian fundie, and former Inquisitor Generalis, John Ashcroft saying stuff like this:
…those who violate the Geneva Conventions should not benefit from its provisions.

If the pope thought the Muslim faith were better than the Catholic faith, he’d be a Muslim.

It’s all there in the New York Times. And make sure you read all the way to the end:
Ashcroft: I make barbed-wire sculpture.

NYT: Why barbed wire?

Ashcroft: Because there was a surplus of it on my farm.

What would Jesus do about this man?
