It took me two and a half evenings to complete your un-put-downable book…it is a unique contribution to the appreciation of a life in Singapore. Thank you for having written it. C. V. Devan Nair, former President of Singapore.

Bought the book from Select this weekend and can’t put it down! It’s a great read! And so nostalgic for me—the good old days!

ThunderBall Films is successfully putting together the movie production of Escape from Paradise and has received a new LOI (Letter of Intent) from actress Bai Ling who starred with Richard Gere in the film Red Cross.

This includes a commitment from a CPA firm who does tax credit financing in Ireland, a possible location to film, as part of the package needed for investors – along with the CPA firm’s commitment to apply for and finance the tax credits if ThunderBall does shoot in Ireland and what portion of the budget they would provide.

Profiling Alleged Islamists

Alleged Radical and near-Radical Islamists who did not pass our profile test:

Harris Zafar

On Megyn Kelly’s show, Harris Zafar repeatedly says that Ayaan Hirsi Ali has the freedom of speech, but then says that he is “surprised” that Yale invited her because of her views on Islam, and “invites” her to speak not about Islamic supremacism, Sharia, and jihad, but to echo the Ahmadi line, falsely claiming that it is the largest single Muslim group, when actually it is a tiny minority that is denounced as heretical and persecuted in Pakistan and Indonesia. So, Megyn Kelly was quite right to point out that what he was actually saying was that Ayaan Hirsi Ali has the right to speak but shouldn’t be given any forum unless she stays within the bounds of what Zafar and his group consider to be acceptable.
