August 25, 2011 – This is my second post for today. Ali Farzat, a well-known political cartoonist and satirist is in hospital because of a drubbing he received from what the BBC calls security agents. Of course, the story is transmitted from so-called “activists” who are just criminals with a political agenda. In any case, the real truth is that he was beaten up by either pro-government toughs who had no authority to do anything of the kind or by unsurgents anxious to have more blame heaped upon the Assad administration. He is reportedly allright but confused. I knew I had to investigate this story when I heard that he was accosted on the street and beaten up. That is not how the security services operate when a person is suspected of “Idh’af shu’ur Al-Umma” or “weakening the morale of the people”. He would normally be arrested and then brought before a security court. In this instance, it is obvious that he was attacked by individuals with no connection to the government.
The EU is imposing new sanctions on people who have no connection to the EU. That’s right, the self-described boring white people of Europe are hitting the Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards with more of the same. The Iranians don’t seem to care. So why do the Europeans? Is it possible that many of these apparatchiks in the EU have nothing to do but issue lame, meaningless penalties to give the appearance of doing something? Even Syrian military men are on the EU list today. The reason for the actions against Iran are that the Quds Force is supplying Syria with anti-riot equipment. What’s wrong with that? I believe that Europe is becoming increasingly silly.
Important medical news: Prince Tabl Ibn Tablayn Zawj Al-Mawzaaya of Gutter has been successfully deflated in hospital after he experience sudden gaseous inflation while watching President Assad pooh-pooh the world last Sunday. His wife, Madame Banana, expressed relief that her husband did not explode as predicted by his personal physician, Dr. Balduir Hasenpfeffer, some days ago. He did say that the good prince would have to deal with some “cellulite issues and must stop watching Syrian television”. Ziad
