My Terrorist Hang Out Spot

There is an Arabic coffee shop here that I go to on a very regular basis, I even joke that its like my own personal social club. Like many Arabic coffee shops they have a big screen TV with Arabic satellite channels on it. At night they play Arabic music videos on channels like "Mazzika" or "Melody Arabia" but during the day when business is slow and almost all the customers are Arab, they play Al-Jazeera or watch Arabic movies.

A couple days ago they were watching a movie on one of the Egyptian channels that was bad mouthing George Bush and saying great things about Saddam Hussein. Some of the people complained out of fear saying, "you shouldn't play this" but they let it play anyways. The next day the place was filled with 30 Chicago police officers searching the entire place with flashlights and dogs. Apparently there was a report of "weapons" in my beloved coffee shop! Do you think there is a connection? I swear the walls are bugged by the Department of Homeland Security!

No sara, Egypt is, where they give you 10 year prison sentences for "insulting Islam and Muburak"

Hell, it's your favorite coffee shop but did anything turn up? I doubt they were searched the place b/c they watching al-jazeera. If that was the case they would've stormed and searched my parent's house a long time ago.

I doubt it had anything to do with politics, if was was only regular police who showed up.

This is slightly off topic, but I changed my blog URL. Since I'm in your sidebar and you're one of the few people who actually read my blog, I figured I should tell you. I'm now at I will begin blogging again soon, I promise. I'm not dead, I swear!
