This from a country which fines/imprisons people like Brigitte Bardot for writing a book with her opinions.

By the way, did you know Rush Limbaugh was nominated for the Nobel Peace prize?

Did you know that Arafat was flown to France, free, treated medically, and never charged with any Human Rights violations by these same people?

Completely meaningless.
