Following are excerpts from an interview with Egyptian poet Abd Al-Rahman Al-Abnoudi, which aired on Dream 2 TV on February 10, 2013.
Abd Al-Rahman Al-Abnoudi: I used to like Tunisia very much. I would see how tourism was thriving there, and the people were familiar with French and European literature They opened my eyes to Saint-John Perse, and other great poets and novelists. I learnt all this from the Tunisians.
Today, you see there men wearing robes all the way down to here It is as if they just emerged from a cave in Tora Bora. They took over Tunisia. They are like the Mongols.
First, they came to power. Then, the extremists among them were not content with the rule of the Ennahda Party, so they began the assassinations. They assassinated [Chokri Belaid], who was just like me, only he was a socialist, a union leader, and so on. He was a really good guy. They would not hold a dialogue with him. They do not know the meaning of dialogue.
Interviewer: There was a fatwa sanctioning his killing
Abd Al-Rahman Al-Abnoudi: We have these fatwas here too. Take the fatwa by that guy with hair all over his face
Interviewer: You mean Dr. Mahmoud Sha'ban.
Abd Al-Rahman Al-Abnoudi: What is this?
Interviewer: According to that fatwa, if you oppose the ruler, you can be killed.
Abd Al-Rahman Al-Abnoudi: As I said, it's like Tora Bora. We're turning into an Afghanistan. Soon enough, you'll see mountains here. One day, we will wake up and see mountains all over, and ghosts will be coming out of them, to spook the Egyptians.
Interviewer: You mean that the caves of Afghanistan will move here?
Abd Al-Rahman Al-Abnoudi: Yes, the mountains too. The women who wear tents all the way out to here will also come. We will start to destroy archaeological sites, just like them. These people think like drug addicts.

Yeah..Afghanistan with F-16’s and M-1 tanks and what else?
Arabs are actually rather famous for poetry, it’s how they kept records before their rather late start in writing. Their language allows rather complicated thoughts to be expressed in precise ways.
A lot of Classical Arabic poetry is ironically about drinking alcohol and romantic themes that would irritate Salafis.
I actually met a Saudi once who said that they were surprised at what one of the famous poets actually wrote, because the government doesn’t allow it to be published for it’s impiety.
and then they will blow up the pyramids.
islam delenda est
Sunni or Shiite
Either way you are so screwed
Jihad Jihad Boom
Here with a loaf of bread beneath the bough..
A Book of Verse, a jug of wine and thou,
The wine is haram, the verse is banned
And thou shalt be stoned, up to your neck in sand.
The only thing left is the loaf of bread,
But it was made with LARD, so BANG, you’re DEAD!
I concede to your superior offering!
I humbly accept, but enjoyed your poetic offering thoroughly.
In fact, YOU, (and Omar Khayyam) inspired me!
Why thank you dear FRiend!
