My response to MaGdee!
Dear MaGdee, Thank you for the incredibly humorous comments you left me the other day. I have had the biggest laugh cause of your post, so thanks for that! I have been waiting on one of you to get some balls and come over here and say something, although I didn’t expect it to be this soon. I guess I am getting more popular then I thought. However, I must say I was a little disappointed by it. I mean, I expected you to come over here and do some rambling and not have an actual argument to pose or anything, and i was right as usual. But to actually do that without leaving the name of your blog or even an e-mail so I can return the favor, well, MaGdee, that’s kind of a pussy thing to do. God forbid I come over your blog and expose you for the idiot you are. If I didn’t know any better I would say that you are afraid of me. Hmm… However, I am kinda curious, why did you exactly decide to come over here and ramble without a point? I mean, did you like tell everyone you knew who reads this that you are going to come over and “Put me in my place” or something? Are you satisfied being the group’s cowardly hero? If that’s the case, then congrats my friend for a mission accomplished. Unfortunately you have shown yourself off to be a complete idiot in the mean time, and I am writing this post to explain to you why that is! I know people like you MaGdee, and I have to say that you are a complete cliché. “Ohh, darn, Sandmonkey and Big Pharaoh have opinions that are at variance with my own. Can’t have that now can we”? It’s not like you think for yourself or anything, you just repeat what everyone around you tells you and for that I pity you. You just don’t know any better. Let’s see, you (and alleged others) called me a “self-hating idiot”, which is really what you are my friend. I wish I was self-hating, then I wouldn’t care that much about how bad we- as Arabs- have fucked ourselves over. Apparently wanting democracy and change makes me self-hating. I did not know that that’s what it took! I always thought I loved my country- Egypt that is- and wanted it to get better. And while I may be not doing much but rant on a blog, at least I am doing something. I have some ideas and solutions on how we could improve the shitty situation of our country. Do you? Have you ever done anything besides bitching about how things are fucked up and then changed the subject? And what are you defending exactly MaGdee? Do you even know? Ohh and the reason why I didn’t call myself a “SandNi****” is because I actually do know some black people that would kick your ass for using that word. I can introduce you to them one day, although I am not sure that you would walk away alive afterwards. I didn’t know about Dune coon or raghead though. Those are new to me. I will add them to the “Sandmonkey” post just for you. And for my “Redneck” friends as well. Gotta keep them happy, you know? I can’t help but wonder though, how much of a racist are you MaGdee? You know calling people Ni***rs and rednecks? Calling people names MaGdee isn’t very nice! Didn’t your mommy teach you that? Guess not! Anyway… To answer your question MaGdee, no, spending 5 years in the US didn’t make me an American, but it led me to further understand American life, society and perspective. Unlike the majority of Internationals that go there for school, I actually made an effort to make American friends and try to understand their society and way of life a little. I am actually capable of seeing things from their perspective as well as the Egyptian one. I know that being able to hold and compare 2 different points of views or perspectives might seem really hard for you to do, but it isn’t for me. My point is, there are some things in American society that I disagreed with, but a lot that I agreed with, found lacking in our own and wished we had. You know, like being able to debate ideas, hold democratic elections, freedom of speech, religious freedom, Tolerance for other cultures and religions. You know, crazy radical notions like that. But you, of course as the defender of everything egyptian, Arabic and Islamic, are against all that, right? Ohh, And I was in the states 2 years before 9/11 you idiot. Check the math. As for being Pro-Israel, well, that really came later, but taking the logical road there started a while ago. Let’s debate the facts, shall we? When the Jews started immigrating there after World War II, they started buying lots of the land from the Palestinians there, who were more then happy to sell it. After a while, the Hagannah’s and other Israeli terrorist groups like the Stern group started bombing stuff and kicked the British out. Did the Palestinians, who saw “their” land getting occupied get up and fight for it? Nope. Ran away and asked everyone else to fight for them instead, and that of course started the 1948 war which Egypt of course fought in and lost. After that Egypt fought against Israel 3 more wars and in every war we ended up losing, and yes, that includes the Yom Kippur war. We lost that one MaGdee, I am sorry to shatter your illusions, but we did. I know I know, with the celebrations we have every year you might think we won, but we really didn’t. It’s a lie. Ever wonder if we were really winning why we accepted the American seize-fire instead of finishing the job? It’s because we were losing the war my friend. And if you want proof, check out any History Book that was not printed in egypt and you will find that Israel won that war. And if that's only there because it's a jewish conspiracy to rewrite history, well then check out the name of the peace negotiations. They were called the “Kilo 101 negotiations”, because the Israelis second army-under Sharon’s leadership mind you- was 101 Kilometers away from Cairo in Port Saeed, while the whole Egyptian army was stuck in Sinai. It’s why Saddat accepted the seize fire MaGdee. But you probably don’t know that! People like you don’t need facts. Everything you know you just heard from someone else and you repeat like a parrot. But, that’s ok, as I said, you don’t know any better. Anyway.. So where were the Palestinians in the middle of all that someone might ask? Did they fight in any of those 4 wars? You know, volunteer or send money or something? Nope, nope and nope. They could’ve caused some sort of uprising when the Yom Kippur war started and thus completely messed the Israelis up with an attack from inside as well as outside, but they didn’t. They chose not to! Why bother, the Egyptians will do it! There is an actual saying that period MaGdee, I am not sure you know it, but it went like this: “The Arabs will fight Israel until the last Egyptian soldier”! We lost 100,000 Egyptians in those wars MaGdee, and we didn’t even get a thank you. Instead we were- and still are- called Traitors and cowards by those we fought for and who did not fight. You know who the Palestinians and Yasser Arafat were fighting in the 1970’s? King Hussein of Jordan. Yes, other Arabs you freakin moron. The Palestinians didn’t start the Intifadah until 1984, almost 40 years after the War of Israel. By that time Israel was its own country with institutions and generations of people born and raised there, thus having as much right of the land as the Palestinians did. You know what were the Palestinians doing all that time? They were kidnapping planes and killing athletes, u know, stuff that TERRORISTS DO! And if we chose to ignore all that MaGdee, like you and your friends chose to, the 1990’s and the 2001-2003 attacks are proof enough for your ass. Do you know that at some point in the 1990’s more then 50% of Israelis wanted peace with the Palestinians? That number dwindled now, because they realized what has been the Arabs dirty little secret for the past 20 years: The Palestinians- and Arabs- are not really interested in peace with Israel. We don’t, not really. We want them gone from this region forever. It’s why we never really capitalized and made relations with the Israeli peace supporters in Israel, no matter how much they defended us. The Palestinians and their bombs don’t really differentiate between peace-loving Israelis and Palestinian–hating Israelis, they are all Jews and therefore should all die. How long did you think it would take the Israelis to realize that MaGdee? How long before they give up on peace and bring Sharon to power in order to defend their livelihood? Not to mention, what was the Peace offer that Palestinians were giving anyway? Land for peace? What’s that? “Give us the land and we won’t try to kill you”? That’s thug mentality MaGdee, and can only work if the Palestinians were more powerful then the Israelis, which they are not. But do you really wanna know what made me Pro-Israel MaGdee? You really do? It was the Taba bombings. I am taking it a little personally because I was there with my friends at Ras Shaitan, and I left half an hour before the bomb went off, and had to go back and get the rest of my friends who were hiding in a beach cabin afraid of terrorists coming to kill them. Can you imagine how scared they were MaGdee? Or how harrowing the destruction looked? Or even how the victims looked, whose only fault was being Israeli and on vacation? That shit happened on our land MaGdee, in Egypt and the guy that was head of that group and planed the attack was Palestinian. You see, after Sharon built his security wall, they no longer could come into Israel and blow themselves or in some cases convince 16 year old girls to do it. So instead they came and attacked them here, where they could. You know, I was against the Security wall before the bombings for mental associations with the Berlin wall. Now, I am angry that we don’t have a wall of our own between our borders and Gaza’s. I guess escaping a terrorist attack made me a little irrational. As for Sharon, well, I have to say I admire him, but I never said I liked him. You do realize that you can respect someone and not like them at the same time right? I respect him because he puts the interests of his people first, and because for 40 years as a man of war he never lost and now he is attempting to create a peace that can actually last more then a year or two. And I didn’t call him a man of peace MaGdee, that was Mubarak by the way. But I do recognize that he is capable of it. And as for the topic of Sharon’s ass, to tell you the truth I never really checked it out. You apparently did. I guess that says something about you now, doesn’t it my friend? As for supporting Bush, it may come off as a shocker to you, but traditionally egyptians have always supported the republican candidate, this year being the only exception. For the 1980, 1984, 1988 ,1992, 1996, and 2000 campaigns the arabs and egyptians in the USA have voted overwhelmingly republican and that sentiment was shared and echoed by the arabs all over the middle-east. Whether you publically admit it or not, you know you wanted Bush to win in the 2000 elections, cause you oh so feared a Jew in the white house. I know that cause everyone who talks and thinks like you thought the same way. And this year, the arabs voted for the democrats, not because they believed in the democrats ideas or beliefes, but because they did not like Bush. Pure and simple. Watch the 2008 elections my friend, and you will see that once he is out of office, they will retrun to voting republican once again. I guess that makes us all supporters of the most "right wing US government in history". Scary, huh? Ohh, and can you please support that statement next time, instead of just parrotting a line from Fahrenheit 9/11? I understand that you must have seen it like 5 times and have it memorized by now, but please do your own research and don't believe everything that Michael Moore says to be truth written in stone. That man, believe it or not, had an agenda and he told you everything you wanted to hear and took your money in retrun. They have a name for people like you my friend and its SUCKER! And as for the Leaders remark, yeah, I have to say that Bush is putting the fear of god in them. Check out Libya, who suddenly decided to pay reparations for the bombing of the plane thing and dismantled its nuclear program. And while you may have a point about Mubarak having a lot of cash in his pockets because of them, I have no idea what you are talking about when you refer to Saudi and Jordan leaders. Saudi leaders- the oil sheikhs- are getting paid off by the states now? Am I missing something? And as for Jordan, well, thanks for bringing up my favorite Arab state, you know, the one with the friendliest relationship with Israel and the US, and yet at the same time 70% of its population is Palestinian. Ever find that to be ironic MaGdee? I sure do! In conclusion, I am glad I provided you with a good laugh MaGdee, cause you sure as hell returned the favor. I will be kind of sad if you sod off and don’t show your face around here anymore with another post of yours. Nothing makes my day like moronic ramblings! Ohh, and by the way, I do know a couple of other tricks MaGdee, but i am saving them up for later. For now i am satisfied with exposing you for the idiot you are infront of yourself and your ilk, not to mention everybody else! Have a nice day!
