Merry Christmas from the land of Peace


I would like to wish my readers a Merry Christmas with carols and camels from the land of peace, who once was hospitable enough to take in and shelter a baby called Jesus.

Nowadays it seems that the authorities have given the border guards carte blanche to shoot first and ask later, upon departure from Egypt. Just as long as it can be established that you have the wrong colour of skin and would like to enter the holy land. It sounds pretty much like what King Herod did on the other side of the border in the land of milk and honey some 2000 years ago.

The picture is a classic, taken from fellow blogger Big Pharaoh.

And a happy new 2008 to you too! I miss your writing, among other things perhaps a new year can bring you out of the self imposed retirement?
