I'm not sure actually about that image -- it's from a book of Arabic graffiti is all that I know. Looks Bansky, or Banksy inspired, certainly

NGH @7:12, I will have to look for Mazen Kerbaj. During the Israeli attack on Lebanon I made an online contact with a Lebanese graphic artist through her daily updates on the situation as she was experiencing it. Major expansion to my view of the middle east.

Hey Gary!

Honestly, I don’t really get too upset by musicians from the Middle East rapping or rocking. Even if somehow they brush against my personal ideals, at least it’s some kind of fun creative western stuff coming through.

And if history has taught us anything, hate-group music really sucks.

Just as Ten Commandments says No Graven Images - there is a strong Koranic tradition to have no representational imagery at all - is why you have such incredible geometric 'arabesques' in mosques... Islam means Surrender is my understanding - & people often turn to it for moral rectitude it seems...

Along with Doug, listening from rural MN, when listening to your show I always think of the Lou Reed line, "Then one fine morning she turned on a NY station and couldn't she believe what she heard at all."
