Arab League Convenes Emergency Meeting to Make Enormous Mistake

Arab League Convenes Emergency Meeting to Make Enormous Mistake

Mistake yet to be determined, but members hope it will be one of their best yet.

by

JEWLARIOUS SATIE – Yesterday, in Tripoli, the Arab League convened an emergency meeting in order to make a mistake of monumental proportions. While the precise mistake was not yet determined, as discussions were continuing into the night, Arab League Secretary General Amr Moussa said, "It is not the issue itself that is important. What is important is that, like always, we come out on the side that offends all of humanity -- sometimes even ourselves."

Pundit, Charles Krauthammer speculated that the Arab League was on the verge of "making a massive, backward and senseless error," suggesting that they may vote to back deceased former dictator Saddam Hussein in the ongoing insurgency. Meanwhile, Thomas Friedman suggested that they may "go nostalgic" and vote once again to reject the UN Partition of Palestine or to support Muammar Gaddafi over his involvement in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 which exploded over Lockerbie, Scotland. Meanwhile, the BBC lauded the undetermined mistake in advance, calling it "a watershed" and a "turning point for the West to make up for the many humiliations that have befallen the Arab peoples since their last major mistake... and the many before that."

They may "go nostalgic" and vote once again to reject the UN Partition of Palestine.

Despite a history of making "snap" irrational decisions that undermine long term self-interest, Arab League Secretary General Amr Moussa stated, "We will not make any hasty declarations. While the best and most memorable mistakes seem to come almost instantly, we know that if we work hard on this one, we can really eliminate any shred of remaining goodwill that exists in this challenging post-911 world." Moussa paused and contemplatively said, "Maybe we can come up with a mistake that will eclipse our members cheering at the news of the 9-11 attacks. Wouldn't that be something?"

HOORAH for comments 2 & 3

I also am from the states and comments 2 & 3 are frightingly accurate. It''s all so unbelievable but yet not suprising at all.

Sewer Pipes

My bet is that the big mistake the Arab League is about to make is that they are going to tear out all the sewer pipes in the entire Arab Middle East for use as shell casings with which to bomb the Zionist Entity.
After all, the controlled test case last year in Gaza worked so well.....

Arab mistakes

We here in in the US are not allowed to point out the mistakes the Arabs make, lest we offend. For instance, dodging a bullet too far my be considered politically incorrect and denying the misunderstood Muslims their right to free expression. They should make Carter their Prez, after all, we''re probably going (another big mistake) make one of their own our President.

Carter''s too old ..

I think that if they want a real go-getter, they shoulf name William Jefferson Clinton as their next President. After all, he did such a great job of disgracing himself, his family, and the country, he''s a natural.

Samuel Shinewald is streight-on correct....

I love that great sense of humor! And, who better to poke fun at than the Arab League? They would have an official team sport but, they''re still waiting on someone to invent the "football bat"! The great master of sarcasm, Don Rickles, would be proud of Shinewald and Krauthammer''s remarks here. Good one Samuel!
