THE RICH MAN'S CLUB IN DUBAI
In my previous blog of February 24, 2008, I had information about a recently concluded, all star studded cast at the International Finance Forum in Dubai.
But, another conference is scheduled, again, for April, 2008, with our newly discovered love affair at the "International Islamic Finance Forum" in Dubai, of course, where else.
As the following headline says, the "Gulf Mega-Sukuk Issues [are] A Rich Man's Club":
But, this particular conference is somewhat different from all the others, slightly unusual.
("Why is this night different from all others?")
Well, at this upcoming conference of rich men/women, an event called, "Guru Day" will be featured.
What and/or whom, pray tell, is Guru Day at this rich mans conference?
The answer is really good, precious, audacious, chutzpah, balls!
(Someone provide the Arabic equivalent?)
None other than, Prof. Yunus, the fellow from India's Grameen Bank, the Noble prize winner, the guy who throws out a few crumbs to the poor!
This is "rich."
He will be Guru for the Day at the rich mans club!!
If that is not appropriate, I do not know what is?!
That really sums it all up in a nutshell. Shades of Charles Dickens lives on.
It really does not get much better than this, does it?
I have a suggestion for all the Iraqi and Palestinian refugees living in Syria, Jordan, the Middle East.
Show up, storm this conference and demand your rights!!
partnership/acquisition with While on this subject, readers may recall my many previous blogs on Turkey's Akbank, Akbank'sCitigroup, and, as well, Iran's Parsian, the large celebration of this event at NYC's prestigious Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.
This was all last year around May, 2007, in my previous blog, to which I can't link, unfortunately.
Well, here's a followup on all this, "Akbank on Top in Brand Value":
In addition, Turkey's criminal, Islamic AKP government, who passion is to sell state enterprises, is still considering selling off/privatizing Turkey's highways and bridges!!
The last time I read they were considering selling water and lakes as well.
After wiping out the KRG, Ataturk's military needs to turn around and wipe out the AKP next and renationalize its industries and resources.
But, before returning to Istanbul, they need first to finish the job they started in Iraq by going on to Baghdad and wipe out the Butcher of Baghdad, Sadr's militia.
Then, they can return to Istanbul to deal with the AKP.
Meanwhile, as I write, I'm aware, more riots ensue and tear gas in Bosnia as the Serbian opposition and resistance, the re-emergent ANTI-FASCISTS, who, of course, receive NO support from our fake, pseudo-American Left, attempt to storm the US consulate.
Putin/Russia/Gazprom continues it's previous gas agreement with Serbia.
While Putin/Russia is supporting Serbia, which is good, nonetheless, Russia recognizes, gives legitimacy and accepts the other Iranian/Kurdish/American puppet Nazi regime in Iraq.
Lukoil still wants its contracts.
And Putin/Gazprom plays footsie with Iran's Islamic Fascist regime and its puppet government in Iraq because Gazprom needs Iran to counter US influence and Nabucco.
This is a mistake.
Compromising with Fascism is like being alittle bit pregnant.
