The diary of a Saudi man, currently living in the United Kingdom, where the Religious Police no longer trouble him for the moment.
In Memory of the lives of 15 Makkah Schoolgirls, lost when their school burnt down on Monday, 11th March, 2002. The Religious Police would not allow them to leave the building, nor allow the Firemen to enter.
....of making you talk.
A long-time friend of this blog, fellow shawarma addict and regular Boston to Bahrain commuter, the author of the "Cerebral Waste" blog, has managed to pin me down and get me to answer some questions, in this interview.
It was actually a post on this blog that was my inspiration for the "Muslim Offense Level". There was a particular entry for the British that went like this:
The British are feeling the pinch in relation to recent bombings and have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved." Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross." Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the blitz in 1940, when tea supplies all but ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorized from "Tiresome" to a "Bloody Nuisance." The last time the British issued a"Bloody Nuisance" warning level was during the great fire of 1666.
The entries for other Europeans are rather less flattering!
