The set-up. (the endy)
As Sunni jihadists alarm the world, the Party of God seeks to brand itself a bastion of moderate Islam.
They have the link to the English translation of Hezbollah’s explanation.
The punch line. (the funny))
including not a few Western pundits, will have fallen for it (an English translation was also published).
I’d bet a dollar it’s not just “pundits”, it’s also the people in power in EUnuchstan and the US.
We’re gonna be Hezbollah’s allies.
Hmmmmmm, does that mean we’ll be at war with Israel?
You have to admit, Obama does like to fight both sides of a war.
RTWT, it’s kinda long but pretty good.
Makes me hope for Lebanon.
As does this story, I did not know this. I would have bet against it actually.
It’s about the LGBT community in Lebanon. Yes, there is one.
Their bars would be rousted and people busted every now and then, not all the time, just the cops being harassing every now and then.
But this is the best part.
On the legal level,… In his verdict, Sleiman stated: “Whereas man is part of nature and one of its elements, and a cell within a cell in it, it cannot be said that any practice of his or any behavior of his is against nature[….] therefore consensual same-sex relations are not “unnatural,” and therefore shouldn’t be subjected to legal penalty.”
Judge Naji al-Dahdah, of Jdeideh Court in Beirut, took the decision from Batroun a step further in a ruling dated January 28, 2014, when he rejected a case against a transgender woman. The woman had been accused by the state of having a “same sex relationship with a man,” …
“Gender identity is not only defined by the legal papers; the evolution of the person and his/her perception of his/her gender should be taken into consideration.”
… Judge Dahdah legitimized not only the right to have a different sexual orientation but, more importantly, the right to gender expression. This ruling is progressive even by Western standards.
Good for Lebanon.
You have to admit, that bolded part is very unfunny in a pretty darn funny way.
Important 45 Seconds Late Update!!!!!!!!
Do anybody else find it hilarious that Larry King is on Ridiculousness?
I know I do. In a “laughing at” not “laughing with” way. It’s far too late to realize he’s a joke the way Shatner did late in his career.
H/T Veeshir, he likes that website.
