Of Footballs and Foes

The Arabic dailies are full of the good news for once; the Arabs have the final say – in football at least. Saudi Arabia and Iraq are through to the finals of the Asian Cup. And as the Iraqis try to celebrate their great win over Korea and savour a fleeting moment of joy, two bombs go off in Baghdad, callously claiming the lives of sixty Iraqi men, women and children.

Hubby thinks that like the Arabs win in football, they could win in politics too; by using the same nimble tactics with the ball as it goes "toz, toz, toz" all the way to their adversary's net. For those of you who don't know the meaning of 'toz' it refers to the sound a bouncing ball makes; but it also has another meaning ...
… mildly put, 'buzz off'!
