As it seems, I have been mistaken all those years about my political orientation.
Now that I have been informed of this error in (self) judgement, I am afraid I will have to stop talking to all of my Iraqi friends.
Sorry, guys, was a nice time with you.
Oh, in case you’re wondering what this is all about…
Oh, and you Dutchies can piss off too.
And the Turks.
And that Libyan dude.
P.S.: Actually I have to thank Joan from Glastonbury for her quick temper.
I was wondering how she had come to my blog and checked the referrals on Site Meter. Apparently she had been googling for “hijab”, come across my crossed-out hijab pic from that ear pain post, seen the post title “Of Turks, Arabs, Muslims and ham” and decided to grace me with her opinion without reading another word.
So far, so insulting.
For some reason that also made me google “hijab”.
And my pic didn’t only come up for my blog but also for another one.
Now, that one is full of anti-Obama stuff (including new “proof” for something being wrong with “the first Muslim US president”’s birth certificate after all) and anti-Muslim filth.
Well, at least the author knows copyright laws (if not much else), apologized and immediately removed the photo after receiving my email.
I can’t flag him cos Google in its wisdom only allows members to do that, but after reading what they’d do if they decided the flag was deserved, it doesn’t really matter either way.
They’d merely “unlist” him, and maybe include a warning message for people accessing the blog, but that’d be that.
And a final disgusted “Yikes!!” at having seen my own self staring at me from a racist page.
