As Reagan campaigned for re-election, Leon Uris’ novelist pen gave us ‘The Haj” – a gift telling of Arab viciousness against Jews, Israel and their own brethren.  In its ‘Prelude’ set in 1922, we meet Ibrahim accepting his dying father’s symbolic jeweled dagger, a sign he must fight to become muktar: his village’s unchallenged leader. “They know the meaning of the dagger and the courage of the man who can drive it to the hilt,” notes the fading muktar.  As predicted, Ibrahim must challenge clan conspiracy after his father’s death, with a bold display of his courage and determination. Opponents convert to kissing his hand, declaring their loyalty. Continue reading

The first of the pod-people to emerge in the latest science-fiction thriller presenting itself in the capital city is Helen Thomas, the aged and addled onetime dean of reporters to the White House. While her ‘podcast’ is unlike earlier output – when she amazed all conservatives for her outlandish challenges to Bush – it is reassuring to the very conservatives who once blanched when she stood to be recognized.

This fictional Helen Thomas has asked the new El Presidente the most outrageous questions, now causing many journalists to boo her in unison – something they never did for her bizarre Bush bashing – due to such irritating challenges as the following unbelievable, unreal utterances: Continue reading
