Ouch! That was below the belt, Lady Emeagwali !
I'm glad that you are beginning to show me some of your power.
That was more than a little chutzpah coming from you, Gloria in Excelsis Emeagwali !
It goes without saying, that I hate any form of Apartheid. I am personally well informed about the matter (face to face) by friendly Palestinian sources.
As you may or may not know, Israelis get nervous whenever they hear Black people talking about Apartheid in connection with Israel. In no way does an Israeli want to be accused of discrimination or racism, as we say in West Africa, " in any shape or form" whatsoever.
Now, it's more like you've put me in the position of Bird on the wire as I'm sure that in the next conference of the birds, Sir Kenneth your pardner of the feather is not going to be shaking hand with you on this one. At this point in time , it looks like one feather must ( have to) detach from the other unless of course it's amor vincit omnia.
Make love not war used to be the motto, but wherever happened to that ?

This morning my friend Demba ( Honourable Mandinka man told me, as we were discussing the latest atrocity ina London, that some old Arab guy who had strapped himself with explosives was asked, " Why do you do this?" The old replied, "Because after that I will have breakfast with Prophet Muhammad - salallahu alaihi wa salaam!" I asked Demba , well what about the 72 virgin houris and he replied, "He said that he will begin to attend to them after breakfast!"
Strangely enough last night I watched the first twenty minutes of this documentary which is available to see until the 29th of this month (It's mostly from a Palestinian angle and it's mostly in English, will probably give you wings to fly (to Jericho):
Well, don't forget that I forwarded this item a week ago:
but the discussion that I anticipated did not ensue, in either Buckhingham Palace English or in some freaking Nigerian Arabic.
Please Expect a fully reply to the vile accusations, sometime after the Sabbath
that will probably set the big balls rolling...
