  1. Imagine a New Yorker cover of John McCain with really short arms feverishly throwing into a fireplace books on “Econometrics” and “Computers for Dummies.” On the wall hang photos of the Green Bay Packers, Pittsburgh Steelers, and the Keating Five.

    Since all is fair in love and war, let’s have Cindy McCain sprawled across an arm chair wearing a racing helmet, and one of her father’s Hensley & Co. beer distributorship t-shirts, looking quite perplexed at a rerun of “Mars Attacks” while tiny Americans run around her chair in a drunken stupor, jumping over empty bottles of Percocet and Vicodin.

    Would the pundits and other Americans who found the images of Michelle and Barack Obama on the cover of The New Yorker find this cover to be “brilliant satire” as well. Unlike the cover of the Obamas, the McCain cover would be based in fact, but I doubt that satire is forthcoming.

    At the end of the day, it’s all about who you respect.

    Definitions:
    Satire – A literary technique of writing or art which principally ridicules its subject often as an intended means of provoking or preventing change.

    Caricature – either a portrait that exaggerates or distorts the essence of a person or thing to create an easily identifiable visual likeness

    As an African American, hoping Senator Obama could make it to the White House on merit and ability, I now see this election getting very ugly.

    Thirty-Six Million Dead — Thermonuclear Truck Bombs Ravage America — Armageddon Begins
    The Liberal Left comes under attack as Freedom Press International Announces the Release of “Trojan Whores ~the Road to Armageddon~ a Prophetic Retrospective by Jahred Kammen, the Last Liberal”. Jahred Kammen is “last man standing” as 14 thermonuclear truck bombs descend on America’s heartland. Jahred is given the “sight of many eyes” and makes record of the events and who is to blame. The “Far Left” is put to siege for exposing mankind to the vagaries of thermonuclear truck bombs and the degradation of societies. The “Mainstream Press” is judged guilty of cover up and of siding with the terrorists in an effort to mask the magnitude of the asymmetrical nuclear threat. In an act of sublime irony, terrorists and liberals are united in their cause. Reason gives way to passion. The many faces of the anti-Christ are revealed . America is humbled. Mankind suffers its final defeat.

    Trojan Whores ~The Road to Armageddon~ a Prophetic Retrospective, by Jahred Kammen, the Last Liberal

    Manhattan Beach, MN (PRWEB) July 21, 2008 — Freedom Press International announced today the release of “Trojan Whores ~The Road to Armageddon~ a Prophetic Retrospective by Jahred Kammen; the Last Liberal” (ISBN 978-0-615-19676-3) $19.95 retail at Freedom Press International; Baker & Taylor, book distributors, and Amazon.com.

    Already Thousands of Times Richer than Comparable Open Pit Gold Mines, Middle-Eastern Uranium Mines Pose Questions that Must be Dealt With by Western Societies.
    The bombs we face are bigger than you can imagine. Jahred Kammen, CPA and CIA, is called upon to make a final record as fourteen thermonuclear truck bombs decimate the American landscape. The first bomb brings the entire state of New York to its knees, but chaos has only begun to take form. Machmud and Harazzi enjoyed their final stroll down 5th Avenue. Apart from scale, few surprises unfold in New York, but as sunrise brings a second thermonuclear truck bomb in Boston, the world begins to understand the gravity of the perils that lay wait.

    “The end state of instability no longer rests as concept but stands as reality,” opines Jahred. The final evidence of genius in evil has shown its face. The Lepers (aka the Liberal Elite) and the terrorists are united in victory.

    The largest thermonuclear warhead detonated by the United States was born of operation “Castle Bravo” and exploded over the Marshall Islands on March 15, 1954. It required barely one cubic foot (one ton) of weapons grade fissile material. Castle Bravo was many times more powerful than the U.S. anticipated. The blast was equivalent to the eruption at Mt. St. Helens. It was 1000 times more powerful than “Little Boy”, the atomic bomb that descended upon Hiroshima.

    “A secret was revealed to the world that fateful day. It created a marker that Satan himself would envy,” states Jahred. This was a marker not lost on Osama Bin Laden.

    In 1961, the Soviet Union countered with “Big Ivan” – the “Tsar Bomb”, a weapon designed to be 8000 times more powerful than “Little Boy”. The Soviets built “Ivan” in 100 days from spare parts, but their brightest scientists feared that upon detonation, the earth might not hold. At their pleading, Khrushchev ordered Ivan’s scale halved to 57 megatons before it was unleashed upon Northern Siberia. In our society, these facts are lost on most. What would the Islamists come to build? Would they show restraint for the benefit of the Infidels?

    A “common understanding of the real facts behind the risks associated with nuclear proliferation will help bridge the political divide evident in the United States today and strengthen America’s rightful image abroad as a source of stability and as a linchpin to peace and security worldwide,” stated J.D. Russell, spokesman for Freedom Press International.

    Commenting on the state of political tensions in the U.S. today, Jahred explained, “If you can’t tell the good guys from the bad guys, things get complicated. Chaos ensues.” A deeper understanding of the asymmetrical nuclear threat will create a bond among all free people and will help ensure that negotiations with enemies of the free world are founded on sound principles and objectives.

    Spawned in the early 1930s, the atomic age was nearing the century mark as Jahred makes his record. Materials advances throughout the twentieth century would make building the thermal temperatures necessary to trigger an atomic primary nearly child’s play. Osama understood what was required to destroy America and he knew it was something he could do. It would require time, patience and the Lepers veil, but three cubic meters of fissile material, hardly enough to fill the back of an old Toyota pickup truck, would be perfectly adequate to destroy the Great Satan. As Jahred would come to suggest, “There was no firestorm at Torra Borra. It would follow later on the Wings of the Beast.”

    “Trojan Whores” is uplifting and thought provoking. A “fact based prophesy”, “Trojan Whores” explores the potential for, and the repercussions of, our worst nightmare, a large scale asymmetrical thermonuclear attack within the borders of America. With over 40 illustrations, “Trojan Whores” provides a compelling visual as well as narrative account of an array of societies most compelling dilemmas. “Trojan Whores” will challenge its readers to find common ground through timely insights into problem solving and by building a better understanding of the context within which many of tomorrow’s most difficult decisions will need to be made.

    • American Muslims doing enough to stop any Muslim leader or follower. I find the two words American Muslim to be incongruous. A Muslim believes in their prophet they have his book and it tells them what to do. Therefore, they have Sharia Law which brings Taqiyya into play when they address the laws of the USA and the Constitution. They are mutually exclusive. A real Oxymoron. The Koran preaches the violent overthrow of my country. It preaches that I am prey. That is what non Christian and Jews are. Pagans and good only to get rid of.

  3. Salamu Aleikum ,How are you Wajaha . I am very interested in your play ” The Domestc Crusaders” . Actually I nam planning to write my MA thesis on Islamophobia as dramatized in Muslim American Theatre .I think your play will be very useful for me .
    Please add me with a link to buy it online because I am not living in Americas . Actually , I am from Saudi Arabia .Please help me.

  4. I saw Domestic Crusaders last Saturday in New York and am impressed by the Playwright.Would he be kind enough to explain the relevance of the last scene about the Partition?
