Celebrity moving to Lebanon!!!
I am sooooo excited! Have you all heard??? Sheikh Omar Bakri Mohammed has packed his bags and moved from London to Beirut! Whoopi!!! Beirut is definitely becoming the Paris of the Middle East... Just look at what kind of high-quality people we're getting!
You see Mr. Bakri is definitely high quality. He left London for Beirut because it just wasn't good enough for him! The corrupt and incompetent bureaucracy in London was simply making it impossible for Mr. Bakri to go about carrying out his daily affairs.
What are his daily affairs??? Well, just take a good look at the picture.
You see, Mr. Bakri feels the unquenchable urge to "fulfil the message of Islam." He once told the Washington Post that he'd “...like to see the Islamic flag fly, not only over number 10 Downing Street, but over the whole world.” Oh how proud I am of the fact that this man somehow has obtained a Lebanese passport. I just can't wait to go back to Lebanon, so that I can join his party and help him post the Islamic flag on the top of the Grand Serail in downtown Beirut. Oh how excited I am! Lebanon is going back to the 7th century AD any time now!!! This is so cool.
Can anyone feel the excitement? Aren't we all so so happy? In the 1980s we got that wonderful toxic waste from Italy that we spread all over our mountains. And now we're getting celebrities too!
Update: It appears that two sources have claimed that Mr. Bakri is a "dual Lebanese-Syrian" citizen. Click here to read the Reuters article that claims that. Click here to read the Naharnet story that also claims that. Naharnet reports that he is "visiting his mother" in Lebanon.
The fact that Mr. Bakri attained a Lebanese passport is scandalous. He was born in Syria, and even though his mother might be Lebaese, Lebanese law stipulates that children of parents with mixed nationalities can only attain the Lebanese passport if the father is Lebanese. Where the &*^% is transparency??? What did the Brits give us for taking in this rubish??? I want to know!
