Mandatory Arabic Classes in Texas

Omar Suleiman (Arabic: عمر سليمان‎; born July 2, 1936)

Making him 74 years old.

He's a placeholder until Egypt is ready to hold free and fair elections, monitored by Jimmy Carter, after which, following the example of National Socialism in Germany, Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza, Egypt will elect a gang of thugs who will install a repressive, warmongering and Jew-hating regime.

The media will egg this process on because they’re always for the “little guy”. Right now the Muslim Brotherhood is the little guy. President Zero is a one-termer, but his lasting legacy will be Iran II, and the Mainstream Media will drop this story like a hot potato as soon as the “little guy” starts flogging eighty year old women for being caught outside trying to get bread for her family without the close male family member as the Sharia-mandated escort.

Tabari I:280 “Allah said, ‘It is My obligation to make Eve bleed once every month as she made this tree bleed. I must also make Eve stupid, although I created her intelligent.’ Because Allah afflicted Eve, all of the women of this world menstruate and are stupid.”

Obama says his father, born in 1936, served in World War II, which would have made him at age five the youngest man to serve in the Big One. No wonder Obama wrote a book about him!

Jimmy Carter says Hosni Mubarak must go. And that UFOs driven by killer rabbits visit him daily. Also the mothership is to return soon.
