That’s right, you heard me. A Nasrallah rosary. It was only a matter of time before somebody put a picture of the Sayyed on one. Such is the equal-opportunity appeal of Hizbulah’s chief in Lebanon that many Christians place him in the same pantheon as St. George, St. Maron, St. Anthony…
Ok, I exaggerate, but only slightly.
Apparently someone is selling rosaries which include, along with the usual lineup of haloed saints’ faces on them, an image of Sayyed Hasan’s turbaned head. Kind of brilliant. Just the perfect blend of religion and politics that makes for a nasty case of knickerus twistosa, here in the Paris of the Middle East.
Naim Qassem was interviewed by Maggie Farah on OTV’s “al-Haqq Yuqal” talk show last night. Held in a secret location, with Maggie’s smoldering eyes peering out from under a scanty lace headscarf, the Hizb’s deputy secretary-general pinned the blame for producing the rosaries on the Lebanese Forces.
I have yet to get my hands on one. Anybody seen them?
