Walid Muhammad Hajj: There were, of course, Jews among the [staff of] the Guantanamo Base, and they would set traps for the guys.
Interviewer: Give me an example of witchcraft.
Walid Muhammad Hajj: Witchcraft was used on most of the guys.
Interviewer: They would cast a spell on them?
Walid Muhammad Hajj: Yes, but by the grace of Allah, through frequent reading of the Koran and invocation of the names of Allah, they managed to withstand this.
Interviewer: Did they ever use witchcraft on you?
Walid Muhammad Hajj: There was one attempt.
Interviewer: How did they do it?
Walid Muhammad Hajj: Once, when I was sleeping – on the floor, not on a bed – I suddenly felt that a cat was trying to penetrate me. It tried to penetrate me again and again. I recited the kursi verse again and again until the cat left.
Interviewer: But there wasn't really any cat there?
Walid Muhammad Hajj: Absolutely not.
Well, there ya have it, folks. Mel Brooks has not one, but two possible plot lines for his next movie: Israeli-trained attack sharks and rapist Cuban kitties. I wonder what animal will be next, camels? Maybe the Jews will be blamed for a plague, you know, going back to Old Testament roots. Or would that be too obvious?
Between the Rent Is 2 Damn High Party & this recent storm of accusations in the Western media with lunatics "uncovering" Jewish tactics, anti-semitism is getting some serious coverage. On one hand, it's good that other people will see how absurd and deranged these people are. On the other hand, though, the people who actually take this stuff seriously are - indeed, convinced by such accusations. That in itself should have any rational person a bit nervous about the state of affairs in the Middle East.
As an aside, I'll be in Paris for the next eleven days. I suspect most of my posts will concern the political scene there. Does anyone have any pressing questions about French politics?
