    This is really interesting. I've found some neat things on Yahoo recently but this takes the cake:

    Thoughts?

    It's nice to see some rational thinking Muslims with power (I don't mean that to be racisist in any way). I still can't see what a 3,000 mile North African horse race has to do with anything though. :p

    Horse racing has a great significance to Arab culture. Way back when in the Middle East Horse bredding and racing was the equivelent of Europe's Jousting competitions. I agree that It doesn't seem like the best idea but hey its better than nothing right?

    I don't think there can ever be real peace in the world. There are so many different people in the world with so many different ideas and beliefs. There will always be someone that tries to force their views on people.

    It's nice that he wants peace, but he is only one man.

    There has always been some sort of conflict going on even here in the UK there are conflicts between different groups of people. I think it's naive to think there will ever be peace. life isn't peaceful, it's full of conflict.

    Of course. People suck, and that's that. We'll never be capable of a Utopia or perfection, hence why Comunism failed.

    Or what he sees in her has nothing to do with age.

    He's trying to promote peace, and he's interested in women over 20. I like him.
