S(l)ights from the Arab Street
Solomonia posted about Haim Saban, a Jewish mogul of Hollywood fame, the following missive:
"Former Israeli billionaire Haim Saban is holding negotiations for the purchase of 50% of the al-Jazeera television network from the Qatari government, Egyptian newspaper al-Mesryoon reported Wednesday. The negotiations are said to be conducted through an Egyptian mediator.
According to the report, the television network is experiencing financial trouble despite its immense popularity. This is the second time Saban is negotiating with the Qatari emir."
On the comment thread following the post, Arabian, a young visitor from Abu-Dhabi made his position clear:
...from observations its clear that peace to arabs is forcasting the end of israel.
as to muslims is a much bigger and broader meaning. the endless struggle between devil and believers, where the devil is represented through people.
as for selling aljazeera in the age of capitalism, and arabs are extreem capitalist, these things cant be totally impossibale. but i have trust in the pure blood of althani )qatar rulers) and their substence. because they know money which god gave them is from god and not from jews or americans, who if they owned oxygen they wouldnt let qataries breath it.
O people of al alyia (the high places"althani")
when the crowds clash you have the last word
under you the pure horses are exhusted to the extreem
and you are the people of tradations and well known deeds
I recently discovered the Arab Street on the blogosphere and posted sights glimpsed of them
