At Long Damn Last!

Konačno!

BiH forms a government:

http://m.nzherald.co.nz/world/news/article.cfm?c_id=2&objectid=10775806s

It's been usual to for clerics to condemn Muslims attending New Year's Eve celebrations, the alcohol, the dancing and noise, only to see Muslims going anyway.
I personally think it's better for people to have fun in groups. They may like each other more and be less likely to turn on each other.

Not huge other amounts of Bosnian news. Mostly it concerns Angelie Jolie's film. I do plan to see it if it screens in the Gulag.

I guess that was inevitable...

So was the gratuitous and unseemly flame-war.

Not to be upstaged by Angelina Jolie....
John Travolta and Robert DiNiro are making a movie set in BiH during the war times.
Robert DiNiro is very pro-Serbian..

I tried to explain Salafism to someone this way once:

Imagine you have some Amish people, only they are not Christian, they are Muslim, and they reject most modern things except the gun and the bomb.

Salafists at one time rejected the automobile and used carriages.

Amish people so far as I can see are pretty nice. I don't think I would like Salafists as neighbors. Muslims, fine, no problem there... Christians.. No problem, Jews no problem... Sikhs, or Hindus or Buddhists... No problem.
Long as they let me live my life we are all cool .... Oh and try to get along with each other!
