Cristiano Ronaldo was gifted a Qu’ran in Portuguese after committing to represent a mobile company in Saudi Arabia.
This guy is soooooo close to be labeled a Muslim sympathizer.
Can’t wait for his next cheque to be donated to Palestinian children’s charities.

Nope. Not a Muslim yet. Look: no beard, no headgear. We’re probably fine. For a while.Source: footybedsheets

War Passenger is a documentary film that tells the story of David Axe, a middle-class, suburban-raised South Carolina resident who walked away from his family, friends, and career to travel to Iraq in 2005 at the peak of the Middle Eastern conflict. Armed with only a backpack and a video camera, David embraced his role as a “citizen journalist” and continued to seek out the world’s worst war zones. Since 2005, he has reported from Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Somalia, Chad, Congo, and East Timor. During his travels, David began to write autobiographical comic books detailing a life at war where IEDs, piracy, and child soldiers were an everyday reality. Utilizing over 100 hours of David’s personal video footage, War Passenger takes you to the frontlines of the world’s conflicts and shows you how hard it is to come back home.

Last Saturday, a destructive earthquake struck China’s Sichuan province, near the epicenter of the devastating 2008 earthquake, damaging thousands of structures and triggering landslides in the mountainous region. As of yesterday, the death toll stood at more than 200, with nearly 12,000 injured, 23 still missing, and tens of thousands made homeless. The quake was measured at magnitude 7.0 by China’s earthquake administration and magnitude of 6.6 by the U.S. Geological Survey. Rescue teams and government aid personnel have struggled to reach the affected area, as many roads were damaged.

In what can only be interpreted as a blase attitude toward security, the Chinese have yet to link this disaster to any terrorist groups.
America, Michael Bloomberg cares about you, and he doesn’t want some creaky old piece of paper to get in the way of freedom:
“The people who are worried about privacy have a legitimate worry,” Mr. Bloomberg said during a press conference in Midtown. “But we live in a complex world where you’re going to have to have a level of security greater than you did back in the olden days, if you will. And our laws and our interpretation of the Constitution, I think, have to change.”
Yes. The “olden days,” when we fought a war for actual freedom. Not the freedom to string people up by the thumbs over pressure cookers. Which, apparently, are WMDs.
Trashing the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law in only four tweets, a lesson from Senator Lindsey Graham.
Seriously, why does he hate freedom? We’ve been holding people in Gitmo for over 11 years under these same auspices. Pretty sure they’re done as an intel asset, yeah? So why are they still there?

The GOP logic: all threats must be dealt with after they happen.
OMG. YES. This is exactly what I’ve been trying to express to those conservatives on FB.
This is the argument I am perpetually having with pro-gun people.
