Meanwhile a very interesting analysis by Juan Cole, “Bush, Islamic Fascism and the Christians of Jounieh“. Contains links to video clips for Nancy Ajram and Haifa Wehbe. Following is a quote from the post:

Bush’s glib ignorance is destroying our world. Our children will suffer for it, and perhaps our grandchildren after them.
