Ahkmed the Arab came to Canada
from the Middle East, and he
was only here a few months when he became very ill. He went
to doctor after doctor, but none of them could help him.
Finally, he went to an Arab doctor who said: "Take dees bocket,
go into de odder room, poop in de bocket, Den pee on de poop,
and den put your head down over de bocket and breathe in de
fumes for ten minutes."
Ahkmed took the bucket, went
into the other room, pooped in
the bucket, peed on the poop, bent over and breathed in the
fumes for ten minutes. Coming back to the doctor he said,
"It worked. Let me be telling you, I feel terrific!
What was wrong with me?"
The doctor said .... "You were homesick"

Two Middle East mothers are sitting
in the cafe chatting
over a pint of goat's milk. The older of the mothers pulls
her bag outand starts flipping through pictures, and they
"This is my oldest son Mohammed. He's 24 years old now."
"Yes, I remember him as a baby"
says the other mother
"He's a martyr now though," Mum confides.
"Oh, so sad, Dear" says the other.
"And this is my second son, Kalid. He's 21."
"Oh, I remember him," says the
other happily; "he had
such curly hair when he was born."
"He's a martyr, too," says Mum quietly.
"Oh, gracious me," says the other.
"And this is my third son.
My baby. My beautiful Ahmed.
He's 18," she whispers.
"Yes," says the friend enthusiastically,
"I remember when
he first started school."
"He's a martyr, also," says Mum, with tears in her eyes.
After a pause and a deep sigh,
the second Muslim mother
looks wistfully at the photographs and says... "They blow
up so fast, don't they?"

Subj: Iraq In The Bible (S442b)
From: chicababe1978 on 7/10/2005
1. The garden of Eden was in
2. Mesopotamia, which is now Iraq, was the cradle of
3. Noah built the ark in Iraq.
4. The Tower of Babel was in Iraq.
5. Abraham was from Ur, which is in Southern Iraq!
6. Isaac's wife Rebekah is from Nahor, which is in Iraq.
7. Jacob met Rachel in Iraq.
8. Jonah preached in Nineveh - which is in Iraq.
9. Assyria, which is in Iraq, conquered the ten tribes
10. Amos cried out in Iraq!
11. Babylon, which is in Iraq, destroyed Jerusalem.
12. Daniel was in the lion's den in Iraq!
13. The three Hebrew children were in the fire in Iraq
(Jesus had been in Iraq also as the fourth person
in the fiery furnace!)
14. Belshazzar, the King of Babylon saw the "writing
on the wall" in Iraq.
15. Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon, carried the Jews
captive into Iraq.
16. Ezekiel preached in Iraq.
17. The wise men were from Iraq.
18. Peter preached in Iraq.
19. The "Empire of Man" described in Revelation is called
Babylon, which was a city in Iraq!
And you have probably seen this
one. Israel is the nation
most often mentioned in the Bible. But do you know which
nation is second? It is Iraq! However, that is not the
name that is used in the Bible. The names used in the Bible
are Babylon, Land of Shinar, and Mesopotamia. The word
Mesopotamia means between the two rivers, more exactly
between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers. The name Iraq,
means country with deep roots.
Indeed Iraq is a country with
deep roots and is a very
significant country in the Bible.
No other nation, except Israel,
has more history and prophecy
associated it than Iraq.
And also... This is something
to think about! Since America
is typically represented by an eagle. Saddam should have
read up on his Muslim passages...
The following verse is from the Koran, (the Islamic Bible)
Koran (9:11) - For it is written
that a so n of Arabia would
awaken a fearsome Eagle. The wrath of the Eagle would be felt
throughout the lands of Allah and lo, while some of the people
trembled in despair still more rejoiced; for the wrath of the
Eagle cleansed the lands of Allah; and there was peace.
(Note the verse number!) Hmmmmmmm?!
God Bless you all Amen !

Subj: US Soldier Talks About Iraq (S379)
From: Imogenelumen on 5/3/2004
Subject: The Rest of the Story - Iraq
This is a letter from Ray Reynolds,
a medic in the Iowa
Army National Guard, serving in Iraq:
As I head off to Baghdad for
the final weeks of my stay
in Iraq, I wanted to say thanks to all of you who did not
believe the media. They have done a very poor job of
covering everything that has happened. I am sorry that
I have not been able to visit all of you during my two
week leave back home. And just so you can rest at night
knowing something is happening in Iraq that is noteworthy,
I thought I would pass this on to you this is the list of
things that has happened in Iraq recently: (Please share
it with your friends and compare it to the version that
your paper is producing.)
* Over 400,000 kids have up-to-date
* School attendance is up 80% from levels before the war.
* Over 1,500 schools have been renovated and rid of the
weapons stored there so education can occur.
* The port of Uhm Qasar was renovated so grain can be off-
loaded from ships faster.
* The country had its first 2 billion barrel export of oil
* Over 4.5 million people have clean drinking water for the
first time ever in Iraq.
* The country now receives 2 times the electrical power it
did before the war.
* 100% of the hospitals are open and fully staffed, compared
to 35% before the war.
* Elections are taking place in every major city, and city
councils are in place.
* Sewer and water lines are installed in every major city.
* Over 60,000 police are patrolling the streets.
* Over 100,000 Iraqi civil defense police are securing
* Over 80,000 Iraqi soldiers are patrolling the streets side
by side with US soldiers.
* Over 400,000 people have telephones for the first time ever.
* Students are taught field sanitation and hand washing
techniques to prevent the spread of germs.
* An interim constitution has been signed.
* Girls are allowed to attend school.
* Textbooks that don't mention Saddam are in the schools for
the first time in 30 years.
Don't believe for one second
that these people do not want us
there. I have met many, many people from Iraq that want us
there, and in a bad way. They say they will never see the
freedoms we talk about but they hope their children will. We
are doing a good job in Iraq and I challenge anyone, anywhere
to dispute me on these facts. If you are like me and very
disgusted with how this period of rebuilding has been portrayed,
email this to a friend and let them know there are good things

What would the Bard think about the war?
BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
Wednesday, March 5, 2003 12:01 a.m. EST
George W. Bush to Saddam Hussein:
Check thy contempt; obey our
Travails in thy good; believe not thy disdain,
But presently do thine own fortunes that
Obedient right which both thy duty owes
And our power claims, or I will throw thee
From my care forever into the staggers and
The careless lapse of youth and ignorance,
Both my revenge and hate loosing upon thee
In the name of justice without all terms of
We have strict statutes and most
The needful bits and curbs to headstrong
Steeds, which for this fourteen years we
Have let slip, even like an overgrown lion in
A cave that goes not out to prey.
Now, as fond fathers, having bound up the
Threatening twigs of birch only to
Stick it in their children's sight for terror,
Not to use, in time the rod becomes more
Mocked than feared, so our decrees,
Dead to infliction, to themselves are dead,
And liberty plucks justice by the nose;
The baby beats the nurse,
And quite athwart goes all decorum.
Nothing emboldens sin so much
To kill, I grant, is sin's extremest gust,
But in defense, by mercy, 'tis most just.
A speedier course than lingering
Languishment must we pursue, and I have
Found the path.
Leave those remnants of fool
That they got in France, with all their
Honorable points of ignorance abusing
Better men than they can be out of a foreign
Wisdom, renouncing clean the faith they
Have in tennis and tall stockings, short

Osama bin Laden:
Ungracious wretch, fit for the

Never were preached.

More than any man in all Venice. His
Reasons are as two grains of wheat hid in
Two bushels of chaff; you shall seek all day
Ere you find them, and when you have them
They are not worth the search.
And in his brain, which is as
The remainder biscuit after a voyage,
He hath strange places crammed with
Observation, the which he vents in mangled
I will keep where there is wit
Leave the faction of fools.
What cracker is this same that
deafs our ears
With this abundance of superfluous breath?
France, thou shalt rue this hour within this hour.
This is a slight unmeritable
Meet to be sent on errands.
Is't possible the spells of France should
Juggle men into such strange mysteries?
This butcher's cur is venom mouthed,
And I have not the power to muzzle him.
He's a most notable coward, and infinite
And endless liar, an hourly promise-breaker,
The owner of no one good quality worthy
Your lordship's entertainment.
A callet of boundless tongue, who late hath
Beat her husband and now baits me.

Allah Calls One Home (S580d)

This video made by the bad guys!
His friends praising
Allah as this guy, is launching mortar shots at American
troops. Read below before watching the video.
Mortar tracking technology can
track the trajectory of
a hostile round and fire a retaliatory shot to precisely
the spot where the hostile shell was fired from. The
effects are usually pretty final.
This only requires the hostile
mortar to fire 2 to 3
rounds. Count the number of mortar rounds the masked
insurgent fires in the video. See how well it works.

Subj: Hussein Calls Bush (S244b)
From: pns on 10/4/2001
Saddam Hussein had a dream and
called President George W.
Bush to tell him about it. "I had a dream about the United
States. I could see the whole country and over every
building and home was a banner," said Hussein.
"What was on the banner?" asked Mr. Bush.
"LONG LIVE SADDAM HUSSEIN! " answered the Iraqi president.
"I am so glad that you called",
said President Bush,
"because I too had a dream. In my dream, I saw Baghdad

Saddam Hussein and George W.
Bush meet up in Baghdad for the
first round of talks in a new peace process. When George
sits down, he notices three buttons on the side of Saddam's
chair. They begin talking. After about five minutes Saddam
presses the first button. A boxing glove springs out of a
box on the desk and punches George W right in the face!
Confused, he carries on talking as Saddam laughs.
A few minutes later the second
button is pressed. This time
a big boot comes out and kicks George in the shin. Again
Saddam laughs, and again George W carries on talking, not
wanting to put off the bigger issue of peace between the two
countries. But when the third button is pressed and another
boot comes out and kicks Bush in the privates, he's finally
had enough. "I'm going back home!" he tells the Iraqi.
"We'll finish these talks in two weeks!"
A fortnight passes and Saddam
flies to the United States for
talks. As the two men sit down, Hussein notices three
buttons on Bush's chair and prepares himself for the Yank's
revenge. They begin talking and George presses the first
button. Saddam ducks, but nothing happens. George snickers.
A few seconds later he presses the second button. Saddam

From 'International Sex Laws' in LAWS file.
Most Middle Eastern countries
recognize the following
Islamic law: After having sexual relations with a lamb,
it is a mortal sin to eat its flesh." (umm ok, I'm sure
the lamb appreciates that one)
In Lebanon, men are legally allowed
to have sex with
animals, but the animals must be female. Having sexual
relations with a male animal is punishable by death.
(OK, like THAT makes sense)
In Bahrain, a male doctor may
legally examine a woman's
genitals, but is forbidden from looking directly at them
during the examination. He may only see their reflection
in a mirror.
Muslims are banned from looking
at the genitals of a
corpse. This also applies to undertakers; the sex organs
of the deceased must be covered with a brick or piece of
wood at all times. (...a brick?????)
The most common name in the world is Mohammed.
