Speakers' Corner - Anyone Speak Arabic?

Yesterday I took a long walk, passing through Speakers' Corner in Hyde Park. No-one was claiming to be Jesus this time - but one guy caught my eye. Here he is, animated and apparently quite funny. Does anyone speak Arabic? What is he saying?

I'm guessing it's something about peace, love and understanding. We could all do with some of that, right?

World of Wifecraft

FarkTV is normally an epic fail by default... But this is class.

I've zapped WOW from my mac three times in the last six months. The urge to re-install is still there. I'm not sure I even enjoy playing. Help me - I am being held prisoner against my will...

An Email From Sally Kern

Thank you for your email concerning the Religious Viewpoints Anti-Discrimination Act.

Although I do not agree with your religious beliefs, this bill ensures that all religious beliefs will have freedom of expression.

God bless,

Dear Mrs Kern

I read about your support for the "Religious Viewpoints
Antidiscrimination Act".

Please don't listen to the naysayers who will doubtless tell you that
this is a ridiculous idea which makes you look like a foaming mouthed
fundamentalist idiot.

Nothing could be further from the truth!

As a Satanist, I fully support your bill.

It would allow my children to express their religious beliefs in class
without fear of recrimination or failing grades.

Well done for thinking your bill through so thoroughly.

I hope you are very proud of yourself for standing up for your beliefs
in the face of all the "logic" and "reason" that will no doubt be
thrown in your face by the intelligent and educated section of the
