يتعرض خيار ثنائي There’s something about the opening to FOX’s “The Simpsons” that still makes me smile.

see From the days I would watch the poorly-drawn shorts on “The Tracy Ullman Show” to the controversial gay marriage episode, the cooks and crackpots of Springfield have filled my days with their perfected mix of lowbrow humor and sharp social commentary.

The yellow-skinned bunch have jammed with U2, ventured into the fourth dimension and celebrated their own holidays (Whacking Day). They’ve traveled to Tokyo, England and even outer space. Now, Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and company are leaving Evergreen Terrace for the Middle East.

Homer is now Omar, Bart is Badr and the beer, doughnuts and hot dogs we’re accustomed to are replaced by soda, kahk cookies and Egyptian beef sausages.

الخيارات الثنائية إشارات استعراض المخزون Without these accessories, is Omar really Homer at all? Even “Simpsons” producer Al Jean said a Homer who doesn’t drink, swear and eat (and behave like a) pig is no Homer at all.

The Arab versions of the show have also smoothed over some of the religious references in hopes of wooing Middle Eastern viewers. Still, not everyone is laughing.

follow link As’ad AbuKhalil, a blogger known as “The Angry Arab” and a fan of the original “Simpsons,” was so disappointed with the “unfunny” Egyptian actors doing the voice-overs and watered-down plots he suggested the network “just drop the project, and air reruns of Tony Danza’s show instead. It is less painful.”

Have we become so far removed from our counterparts in the Middle East we can’t share a laugh at Krusty’s expense?

source One of the most beautiful things about “The Simpsons” is its ability to offer something to everyone. They mock liberals and conservatives and serve up an equal amount of fart jokes for every scathing political critique. So if frat boys and philosophy majors alike can sit down together Sunday nights at 8 p.m. for a laugh, why can’t Iowans and Iraqis?

W. Bush once suggested Americans should act more like the Waltons and less like the Simpsons and was later parodied as the Simpsons’ new neighbor), couldn’t this be our chance to bridge part of the gap between the Middle East and the Midwest?

ثنائي خيارات السماسرة الحد الأدنى للإيداع Perhaps one of the biggest problems in U.S.-Arab relations is the two sides don’t really understand one another. Oftentimes Americans are lumped in with our president and treated as if we share his views and morals. Maybe if Arab people could see not all Americans are gun-toting, warmongering, culturally conservative yahoos, the dialogues we’ve awaited for so long could become a reality.

Just as Americans ought to know not all Arabs are fundamentalist terrorists, Arabs should know not all Americans are preemptive-striking “freedom” fighters.

go As he said in the “Screaming Yellow Honkers” episode: “Jesus, Allah, Buddha – I love you all!”

Sounds like a message we should all share.
