Give it up to the ladies

Freedom laments the arab/muslim countries response to the Pakistan Quake and makes a very interesting point: Arab mass media are capable of scandalizing the US, Britian and Israel for the Palestinian and the Iraqi Muslims as the occupiers and invaders. I hope they remember that the first rescue teams that arrived in Pakistan were from India and US army bases in Afghanistan. Westesn rescue teams are frantically struggling to save the "Muslim" survivors. They probably believed it to be god's punishment Freedom, so they figured let the foreigners go in first so that they can incurr the all-mighty's wrath. The other egyptian blogging Diva, Ritzy, is noting that 94% of egyptian women thought it was acceptable to be beaten. 94 %. The highest percentage in the world. She thinks it's "good news" that only 34% have actually been beaten by a spouse or partner. Yeah. I guess. hmmm.... Stefania is reporting that there is an emerging alliance between Castro, Chavez and Iran. Communism, socialism and islamism together against America. Wohoooooo. Josie has reached a nice compromise on the Evoloution vs. Intelligent Design debate. Highlander covers contreversial arabic TV shows and subsequent conspiracy theories regarding their air or cancellation. And Z. is mad at Turkey- her motherland- for pressuring Europe to let it join their club. She thinks it's due to islamophobic reasons. I disagreed in the comments section.

Maybe BDSM role-playing is just especially popular in Egypt.

Did the survey ask about safewords or calfskin floggers?
