"The Muslims" and that Annual "Eid Thing"!!!

So just had a conversation with someone who said to me-"Isn't your Eid thing today?"

Well...someone also just told me that I should be a "social satirist"...when I was traveling over the weekend.

Given all of that, here's the deal...

Ok Fellow Muslims and soon to be Muslims!
A Muslim professor friend of mine canceled her class tomorrow after talking to a Jewish professor who was doing the same for Yom Kippur! Enough of us not having our holy days! More Power to her! If "the Jews"can have their holidays and eat them too, so can "the Muslims"! (and then once the whole world has been 'converted' to Islam according to plans afoot for that infamous "caliphate", it will of course be a different story!) ; ) Because, if, we allow that to happen then everybody will be a Muslim, right?

I think Sarah Palin and Mr. Ten Percent (the randy husband of the slain Dukhtar-e-Mashriq-Mr Asif Zardari, now calling himself the President of Pakistan!) had an early Eid, when he almost wanted to "hug" her! Only Allah swt knows what was going on in his dirty little mind (always in the gutter?) May Allah swt bless Sarah Palin and her "ideal "Muslim" family" in these times of the tremendous hardship she faces...

Also amid the annual confusion about when Eid actually is, the Fiqh Council of North Amreeka says it is tomorrow!

Now I am an out, loud and proud servant of the Fiqh Council, so I feel my Eid will be tomorrow. When is your Eid, my friends?

Check out this latest email from Eric:
Hi Parvez -- enjoyed your film "A Jihad of Love" over the weekend in Seattle at the South Asian Film Festival! Well done! The film introduces the subject with compelling narratives from the individuals you met and interviewed... Read More, and offers audiences a rare glimpse into their lives experiencing personal and religious change, and reveals the politics of identity, culture, nationality, and place. Thanks, again, for sharing your film.

And this from Atlanta:
Thanks for stopping in Atlanta with the film. It was both painful and beautiful to look in on those lives. I appreciate your work, man.

Andres writes about my op-ed on Huffington, last week
read your piece in the huffington post and have to say that one line reverberated with me: i too was at a fundraiser dinner for a statewide lgbt organization and was seated with 3 guys from the local chapter of the log cabin republicans. since i have light skin, i guess they felt free to talk about how they loved george w bush (this was during the 1st term) and a discussion on whether jeb bush would be the 3rd bush president. then they started talking about the brown one... his nephew george p. bush, and the thought of his children - or all those little brown feet - walking through the white house

So, please go there and comment if you agree and more importantly, if you disagree...

Hello Parvez Sharma,
I've heard about your documentary and are wondering if it's still playing in Atlanta? It looks like it's no longer playing at Midtown Arts Center. I'd really like to view it at some time soon. Today is Tuesday, October 2, 2008.
