I started this blog because I left Boston to live and work in London for a while, and I wanted to stay in touch with family and friends. I'm back now, but still have plenty of opinions on world news, politics, the media and the absolute craziness that comes from dealing with people. Bring it.

Liquid Party

Our journalist friends at Zaman Daily in Turkey are either really funny or need better copy editors. In a story on reaction to the Hamas win, they refer to Benjamin Netanyahu as the leader of, not the Likud Party, but the Liquid Party. Check it out here.

Is this some attempt to highlight the differences between Israeli politicians, and Hamas, who are planning on implementing
sharia law in the PA? Are they implying that the right wing party in Israel is all about the booze? Netanyahu: Liquid party and liquid lunches?

And while we're talking about sharia law in the PA, does anyone else find it amusing that while the new "leaders" in Hamas say they want to use sharia as the basis for their laws, they won't "force" people or close down bars that sell alcohol? Especially since about a month ago, Palestinian gunmen
BLEW UP a UN bar catering to Westerners in Gaza precisely because it served alcohol?

Guess they won't be coming to Netanyahu's Liquid Party down on the beach next Saturday night. I hear that when he's not being self-aggrandizing or trying to whip people up, he mixes a great cosmo.

They won't force anyone to close down their establishment. They didn't force the UN people to close their Gaza club. It just turned out that it wasn't worth the effort of rebuilding the smoking wreckage, that's all. The decision was totally up to them.

Yes, you are right. It is all a matter of choice. Girls and boys can can choose to go to separate schools, or choose to be illiterate. Palestinian Christians can choose to convert to Islam or choose to be persecuted. It's all quite simple really. And bar owners can choose to risk explosions and/or choose to rebuild. They just can't choose to attend the Liquid Party on Saturday nights. Of course, I'm sure Hamas would say that they COULD choose to, if it wasn't for those damn Israeli terrorist-stopping checkpoints.

The LIQUID Party?? Oh, now that is too good. Should I bring my glowstix?

Well, Hummus is obviously well represented in literary circles.

Does Hummus = Hamas?
