Tomatoes a dangerous Veggie / fruit
I am saddened at the amount of e mails I receive which are anti Islam. I mention again there are a great many peace loving Islamic followers on earth. Yes there are Jihadists and sadly as the CBC showed Jihadists from Canada now fighting in Syria.
I feel that many of today's movies and video games are contributing to these young men's ideas of adventure. It is very sad that the Canadian men do not realize how lucky they are to reside in Canada.
Canada's professional soldiers understand the horrors of war. Unlike the video games of today when you get hot by a bullet or an IED explosion. You do not rise from the ashes for the next game.
War is not a game it is deadly serious work.
As for Syria I, as are many, am baffled at the actions/inactions being considered by the rest of the world.
Ashad is now moving his troops and armaments into the safety of civilian centres. This man has no heart nor any sense of moralty in the killing of thousands of his fellow Syrians.
So as another Red Friday approaches I ask you one and all to wear something red in support of our Troops and their families.

On a much lighter note the evils of vegetables have once again been brought to the forefront by some, who seem to be a tad short of a full salad. I wonder what they think of Caesar Salad?
Tomato is Christian, says and warns Egyptian salafi group who made the shocking discovery.
A Egyptian Salafi group called the "Popular Egyptian Islamic Association" has warned Muslims against eating tomatoes on the grounds that the vegetable is a ‘ Christian food ‘.
The Salafi group based its claim on the fact that a shape resembling a cross is revealed when a tomato is cut in half, states the group's message on Facebook.
The Islamists association published the warning on its Facebook page with a photo of a tomato cut in half, revealing a cross-shaped interior.
Tomato is Christian?
A message posted on the page read, ‘ Eating tomatoes is (from now on) forbidden because they are Christian. [The tomato] praises the cross instead of Allah and says that Allah is three [in reference to the Holy Trinity].'
The Tomato message went on , ‘ I implore you to spread this photo because there is a sister from Palestine who saw the Prophet of Allah in a vision and he was crying, warning his nation against eating tomatoes. If you don't spread this [message], know that it is the devil who stopped you.'
Salafi group : Tomato discovery ! !
The message caused outrage among Facebook users, which prompted the group to clarify their warning, saying they did not tell people not to eat tomatoes. ‘ We said don't cut it in [such a way that it reveals] the cross shape.' Reports across the globe say that millions of tomatoes are massacred by cutting in half after the group has claimed that tomatoes are Christian.
Tomatoes around the world are expected to demonstrate against the claims they are Christian. One tomato spoke and said ‘ i am not Christian, i am not Muslim and i am not a Jew, i am a tomato and i should be eaten best with mozeralla cheese. ‘
A further story from a few years ago reminds me of my time in Riyadh when the Imans and Muttawa raised a fatwa against phallic vegetables. In this article it says man shouls do the market shopping and cook and cut the offending vegetables in an area hidden from view of any females.
What puzzles me is this, men do not shop in the markets, men do not cut and prepare anything for a meal. I also find it very funny that these Imans and Mullas are far more interested in their ideas of virtue than on solving the conflicts throughout the middle east.

Food is always prominent in a soldiers life, back in the Great War and in WWII, it was rumoured that saltpeter was placed in food and drink to reduce male libido. I can find no evidence of this. However a pair of WWII Veterans made their comments of the saltpeter principle, I add as a PDF sent to me by a Nato Vet Cam Scott. Thanks Cam.
The true story:
Show your support this Red Friday and please say a prayer for the Syrian people.
