Some time ago I came across a definition of fetish that I liked. A fetish, is equal parts repulsion and equal parts fascination. That said, the world seems to have quite a fetish for Muslims these days. Almost every other day a splashy news story tells all about the exploits of the quintessential 'Mozlem'. On some days we're trying to blow up Times Square, on others we're starting catfights in France. Our descendants go on to become le' Presidente (once a Mozlem always a Mozlem, Obama can't shake his heritage okay) and our other contemporaries issue multiple death-to-America declarations from hidden enclaves in the Middle East.
Oh, and guess what? A Mozlem girl from Lebanon was crowned Miss USofA. And she's pretty and all that, but all the newspapers go on to report that she's Muslim, she looks pretty-damn-hot in a bikini, and she's Muslim, she did a pole dance for extra points during the contest, and she's Muslim. I truly wonder if the sensationalism attached to her being a *gasp* Mozlem won her the crown as much as her looks or her ability to give a lap (I mean pole) dance.
Oh well this was yesterday. Another day, another drama. Let's see what them Mozlems are up to today, shall we?
