And now for something completely different.....or, how others see us!

I recently stumbled across this film on "You tube". The interesting part starts at 2:03:45.

This is an Egyptian film portraying what is claimed to be a true story of an Egyptian dancer involved in espionage against the British.

The acting and production values are laughable. Note that the extras' guns don't appear to be firing...even blanks lol.......and one suspects that the Union Jack / Union Flag is only flying so that one of the actors can pull it down!

But there is a serious aspect to this film. It shows how anti-Western propaganda is still a popular source of entertainment in the Arabic (Muslim??) world.

As Robert Burns said..."Oh wad some power the giftie gie us, to see oursels as ithers see us."

Sir ,

This type of film is a typical example of what happens when Great Britain removed it's self from the Colonies and gave control to the natives.

What worries me more, is that these people are now allowed to come in to the 'mother country', to become ' Quisling's'.

I believe that we live in dangerous times, and a system of internment should be started prior to repatriation to the country of familier heritage.

As for those individuals who wish to leave this great country to fight with the Moslim hordes , then they should be allowed to do so and banished, I would also deport parents , and relatives to join them.

Living in this country is a privilege, and like any exclusive club we should be able to black ball any in individual who does not want to play by the rules.

When in Rome etc....

Yours Sincerely
