Here is an idea MSNBC might want to consider to bolster its sagging ratings: Have a host — the “Reverend” Al Sharpton, maybe — produce a sword and remove the blade from its scabbard on air. The host of a show on Jordanian TV did that, and he is receiving column inches on American blogs, including this one.
Truth Revolt has the specifics:
Husam Al-Abdalet, irritated by the perceived collaboration between Arab countries, Israel and America, opened by declaring “All the disgrace-afflicted Arabs, whose honor has been defiled, and who have been kissing the boots of the Zionists and the Americans, are collaborating in the killing of Hamas, in the killing of the people in Gaza, in the killing of Islamic Jihad, and in the crushing of the Al-Qassam Brigades.”
Al-Abdalet then declared, “I say to all Arab leaders,” before moving to his right and brandishing a large sword. “By Allah you deserve nothing but this sword. If you are real men, let the real men fight. If you are not real men, support the people of Gaza.”
The question that occurs to us is whether the real men eat their quiche before or after going to battle.
