In a Python frame of mind, I went a bit silly over at Craig Murray's. Apropos him discussing Al Qaeda in terms of its media described nature, I pointed out a few oxymoronic facts about Al Qaeda and finally wondered at the fact that it's number three big banana is a Jewish boy from Orange County called Adam Pearlman.
Imagined Al Qaeda board meeting to discuss whom to move into the number three slot -
'How about this Jewish boy Adam Pearlman?'
'What can you tell us about him?'
'Well he's Jewish for starters. I mean really Jewish, his grandfather was head of the ADL. Hmm ...very young ...recent convert ...no experience ...liked satanic heavy metal music. Um wait, it seems he's engaged in attacks on American people.'
'Well that sounds promising.'
'Oh wait, it was Muslims. He got arrested for beating up Muslims outside some Mosques in California.'
'What about finance experience? Military experience? A wealth of contacts in the Muslim world?'
'Nope, not a sausage.'
'Bloody hell! Are there any pluses at all?'
'Well, he's very enthusiastic. And he says he hates Americans for their freedoms.'
'Does he? I have to be honest and say I never got that one.'
'Me neither. Actually it's one of Bush's but you've got to admit it's kind of catchy.'
'Hmm... he's not a spook is he?'
'I asked him that and he said that he wasn't.'
'Look, never mind all that - he's the only one who applied for the job.'
'Bloody Muslims! Here we are trying to institute Sharia law and none of them will be in it! Hell, let's give the job to the Jewish boy - at least he's keen! Hands up for the Jewish boy. All agreed then!'
