Syria's ambassador to the UN likens Tueni to a dog
Syria's ambassador to the United Nations, Fayssal Mekdad, likened slain Lebanese legislator Gibran Tueni to a dog yesterday and indicated that Israel leads American policy on his country.
Mr. Mekdad blamed Israel for his country's increased isolation and dismissed the Lebanese Cabinet's request to expand the Hariri investigation to probe six other alleged political assassinations...
"So now every time that a dog dies in Beirut there will be an international investigation?" Mr. Mekdad said to an Arab diplomat during a closed-door council session, according to a diplomat who heard the conversation but asked to remain anonymous.
Better a loyal, smart and courageous dog than a descendant from a dastardly species of half-men.
He is the one who treated them of 'Sheep' or 'Ghanam' after the March 8 demonstrations.
He used the french expression "mouton de panurge" which is a figurative expression to say that they followed what their leader said without thinking about it. If they lack culture and didn't understand what he said, it's their problem.
First, you peddle a second-hand piece of “information” (of shall I say Neocon infomercial?) emanating from a highly trustworthy albeit conveniently “anonymous” source- for even in New York city’s Midtown boroughs, most backward Ayyyrab/Bedouin diplomats live in fear of “bloodthirsty Baathist bombers”…
Then, once the straw man du jour is well inflated, you hit him hard with faux indignant piques such as “Paul David Wolfowitz was right about Mitchell Aflaq’s vile ideology: this is unalteredly truly evil”.… “this cynical Syrian diplomat called our people stray dogs, I mean like Jeez, can you imagine?”…. “I know for a fact that the Baath party was founded precisely when Adolf Hitler’s hometown in lower Bavaria was perfectly aligned with the cosmic axis of evil vis-à-vis the fourth pillar of Roslyn’s Chapel- not to mention the Mohammedanfascist so-called four pillars of Koranic wisdom”…. “Herr Saddam unplugged all of Kuwait’s incubators after having pieced through the maternities with Baathist bayonets, or vice versa, damn it! I’m not so sure, got to call Carl fast to get an updated version of the Tex-Aviv talking points”….blah blah Zzzzzzzzzz
tw. “straw man”: a weak or imaginary opposition (as an argument or adversary) set up only to be easily confuted.
