Is Borat considered a scholarly reference, or is he sort of like Wikipedia?

So I’m supposed to write an essay for my history of the Middle East course. Here are my options.

-"Do Human and minority rights really count in the Muslim world?"

-"How far is the fundamentalist Islam a threat to the West?"

Or my personal favorite,

-"Whose fault is it, Israel or Palestine?"


Fucked up grammar aside, have you ever seen bigger time bombs? I mean I’m almost positive they’re booby traps or something. Perhaps the words of Don Cherry would suffice “That’s like asking me what I want more; the Clap or Gonorrhea”

Thanks Don. No matter what I say my prof is gonna have a rape party in my ass.

Never heard of that type of party El...

Anyways, let me help you out with those questions.

1) "Do Human and minority rights really count in the Muslim world?"

The Muslim world is hard to define. Do they mean Iraq? Iran? Turkey? Or Muslim-Canadians who feel part of both their ancestory world and their new homes. My answer is that power has corrupted their leaders and made them not respect minority rights. However, individual Muslims want to protect rights since they would be aware that Muslims in other places in the world are the minority and don't have rights similar to the majority.

2)How far is the fundamentalist Islam a threat to the West?"

What the fuck does that mean? Are they asking for the distance in miles or kilometers? Anyways, I think the threat is overblown. We need to left the standard of living of people around the earth. If that happens, people will be happier.

3)Whose fault is it, Israel or Palestine?"

That's not a fair question. I would say that it is the world's fault for not being able to ensure security for people of the Jewish faith, and the world's fault for allowing people in Palestine to be so poor. Take that whoever wrote the question.

2) “How far is the fundamentalist Islam a threat to the West?"

What the fuck does that mean? Are they asking for the distance in miles or kilometers? Anyways, I think the threat is overblown. We need to raise the standard of living of people around the earth. If that happens, people will be happier.

3) “Whose fault is it, Israel or Palestine?"

That's not a fair question. I would say that it is the world's fault for not being able to ensure security for people of the Jewish faith, and the world's fault for allowing people in Palestine to be so poor. Take that whoever wrote the question.

almost forgot,

here's my suggestion, take it or leave it, but here it goes...do the israel and palestine thing, if you want an A, here is what i reccomend. Find out who your prof is more sympathetic to, and just tier the essay to your prof beliefs...fill it up with rhetoric bullshit which both sides use to justify their cause. because you write so well (and i mean it) you will for sure get an A.

p.s if u want help with "rhetoric bullshit" i can deffinately help!

This prof is a speacial case. He's Egyptian and I consider him pretty nuetral. The book however has a bit of an anti-Arab bias. Now I don't know if thats because the Arab side was nastier or something, this is my first time learning this stuff in depth afterall.

The main problem I have with this guy is he uses the term "in a sense" as a verbal crutch. It really confuses things. He'll be like "So the Lebanese Drews were very upset and started to riot in a sense" He'll deliver it in such an uncommitted and insecure tone that you wonder, did they really riot or just kind of get sad or something?

The whole course is like this .... in a sense, in a sense blah blah.

Thank you anonymous for your wise remarks. However if you actually read what was written I think you can see what I'm talking about. Dumbass.

I can tell you one thing. Sir John A. can say whatever the fuck he wants because he actually has a handle and doesn't act tough while staying anon.

Plus correct spelling has never been a central tenant of my blog!

Shitface
