"Say it isn't so!" Bashar Lied, and here I was thinking along with Hannah that he had not chopped down the cherry tree, I fear that if I keep on reading this forum many other of my accepted notions will become conflicted. Matt did you notice that two days ago a Balad party bloke, was blown away at the back of his kiosk. Who knows it may be connected to Bashar's socking away of over four million dollars, donated by wealthy Arab Americans to be used by his party in the last election. Instead it made it's way along the family (Clan) channel, making it possible for some of his starving brothers to buy another Mercedez. To use the Arab venacular, "Bashar is a doggie". A fat, moustachioed, middle class cowboy, who would rather leave his wife and join the steam bath boys in Beirut. I am still awaiting details on his alledged triste with the Israeli-German guy in search of love, who was mysteriously let go after servicing the general staff of the Beirut Police.
