Hand wave from Damascus

Does this mean the same thing to an Arab as to an Italian? If so, Zahar has a message for Bush.

For Arabs it means "wait" or "hold on" -- what does it mean for Italians?

It's a Neapolitan hand gesture indicating "bring it on, you stupid dickhead".

Why do you stay in the US if you hate America so much?

What is the point of living in a country that you detest?

Reading blogs like this make me want to change my mind about the CIA spying on Arabs.

Maybe, its a good idea after all.

Nah anonymous callieischatty is doing the old smear that people like Nur who love their country and are unhappy with what the corrupt bunch of thugs currently in power are doing to America are unpatriotic.

Not only that but callieischatty is either too bigotted, too lazy, or too stupid, to realise that Nur isn't of Arabic extraction.

(Of course callieischatty could be all three.)

I'm a limey and I think Nur is the best reason for living.
