Sandmonkey celebration We've come a long way, Baby! We have gone platinum. The Sandmonkey blog has finally passed the One Million hits Mark. Wohoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Needless to say I couldn't have reached it without your support, and for sticking by me everytime I was at the end of my rope and felt like quitting. You lift me up people! Thank you all for being the best readers a blogger could ask for. Ok, I am going out to celebrate, and tomorrow will be off, because I am preparing a surprise for y'all. This blog has reached a benchmark, and it's time to take it to the next level. You won't be disappointed*! ;) Love you all, The Sandmonkey! *And those of you who know, keep your mouth shut.

Congratulations!!!
It's been a short tim I've been reading your blog, just a month, and I'm having a great time.
I use the information on your "serious" post on my own spanish blog (always citing you, of course), to make my friends read you and have a different vision form Arab world.
And I also have fun with your "less serious" posts.
Congratulations again from Madrid (Spain).

The New York Times reports that the Dutch government has decided to upgrade the compulsory “cultural integration” exams prospective immigrants have to take before obtaining a visa to the country of Erasmus...in order to “filter away all unwanted religiously conservative individuals”

“A lesson, about the Netherlands' nude beaches, is followed by another: homosexuals have the same rights here as heterosexuals do, including the chance to marry.

Just to make sure everyone gets the message, two men are shown kissing in a meadow.

The scenes are brief parts of a two-hour-long film that the Dutch government has compiled to help potential immigrants, many of them from Islamic countries, meet the demands of a new entrance examination that went into effect on Wednesday


Or course citizen of certain countries with high numbers of “religious conservatives” such as Israel and the US are exempted from taking the exam…but the Dutch government wants us to believe this shouldn’t be interpreted as blatantly racist double-standard directed at Arabs and Mohammedans!

But there’s even worse that sheer racism at work here: ironically, by focusing its message on nude beaches, swingers clubs, hash bars…etc. the Dutch government is contributing to the distortion and debasement of Western culture in the eyes of its critics, thus reinforcing their prejudices.

Just like their Neocon friends in Washington and Tel-Aviv, the Muslim-bashers of Amsterdam and The Hague are useful idiots feeding the anti-Western narrative of Osama Bin Laden and Ayman Al-Zawahiri.

Instead of promoting humanistic and secular values by building schools and universities with modernist secular curricula in the Middle-East and South Asia, instead of telling prospective immigrants the world over that Europe is a beacon of humanism and democracy, we’re content with provoking Muslims gratuitously.

In Hitler’s Germany, Jehovah's Witnesses were forced to accept blood transfusion and force-fed ham so they could become “good Germans”.

In Guantanomo’s prisons, Arab and Muslim detainees were routinely forced to watch gay porn movies while listening to the Israeli national anthem

I guess this must have paved the way for the Dutch government’s new immigration law…

Dr Victorino de la Vega, are you trying to get hits on your blog or does your idiotic comment have something to do with Sandmonkey's million hits? People who think like you will be the death of us all.

At first I thought that the Dr...(Dr Who?)oh yeah, Zorro's relative, that's De La Vega, was kidding. So much so that not having heard of him before and I read a lot so for the information of all who don't know..google 'protein wisdom'11.26.05, Amaurot,the Dr himself and see what you have. Of course you all knew that but I'm a bit slow. In the words of a famous Australian stand-up Philosopher, Sam Newman, "You Idiot".
