I find it hilarious and bordering on the obscenely ridiculous
Simon Says Have elections (Saudi Holds Baladeya Elections)
Simon Says Make Good with Israel (Mubarak receives Sharone)
Simon Says Hold your nose
Simon Says Pay up (Gathafi pays)
Simon Says Look Busy (Iraq elects interim government)
Simon Says Stand on one Foot
Simon Says Stop Killing your own people (Sudan)
Simon Says I need a foot rest (Qatar pays for US air base)
Simon Says I need Toilet paper, many offer their hands..
Simon Says No Intifada .. No Intifada it is
Simon has been saying a lot lately, and the "or else" is too obvious, so like programmed robots, our Arab Governments are not even questioning anymore, our leader's noses are buried too deep down there to see, their view is not changing much lately, and they seldom come up for air !
I wish I was a cartoonist to paint this picture !
That was the hilarious part, as for the ridiculous, Simon is ordering basic things, legitimate rights we all crave, yet to all of us the image is so obscene and humiliating, it carries the same helpless feeling as watching your father being slapped on the face!
Want my $0.02, as soon as Simon looses interest or breath and stops "Saying", every thing will revert to "same old .. same old", what will remain will be the sour taste in our collective mouths. Simon will see us as ungrateful, we will see Simon as just another name in our list of oppressors.
