This thing started when I was tweeting:

First Fake Icon:
Two years ago I was –as usual- watching Dr. Phil’s show, I was a BIG fan! I never missed an episode. The episode began & I shockingly found that it was talking about a Palestinian man/guy who involved himself in a relationship with an American girl he knew from MySpace. Of course, Dr. Phil as a “patriotic” American who thinks that all Muslim Arabs are extremists, made the guy look like a very bad person to the audience, that’s what’s America is all about! Dramatizing issues; just like they do in their TV series. The story was that girl, fell in love with the Arabian guy & decided to travel to his country. Dr. Phil with the help of her family, made him look like as if he “brain washed” her, yea as expected.
The episode’s topic was presented as:
“….Dr. Phil continues the story of a young woman who made international headlines when she ran away to Palestine to be with a man she met on the Internet when she was just 16. Katherine was stopped by the FBI and brought back home, but two years later and now an adult, she’s left the United States again to be with Abdullah, the man she says she loves and wants to marry. Katherine’s terrified family thinks she is being brainwashed, and may never be allowed to return home. They say they’ve witnessed Abdullah’s violent temper when he’s verbally abused her over the phone. Now, in an exclusive interview via satellite, Dr. Phil speaks with Katherine and Abdullah together. Is Abdullah lying about letting Katherine return home? Is this couple already married? If you are a parent with a child who has access to the Internet, you can’t afford to miss this show!“…

Second Fake Icon:
last couple of months, Oprah made an episode about women & marriage in Egypt. She interviewed Dr. Heba Kotb, Injy elKashef & an unkown girl called Heba.
You can watch the episodes here:
Part One http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xqnvcj0FzVY&feature=related
Something inside was telling me that this unkown Heba, is either paid for to say such stuff in the way she pictured it to everyone in the world OR she doesn’t belong here!
What made me disappointed is that, a lot of Dr. Heba Kotb’s talk was cut from the show in the montage, according to Dr. Heba’s interview in El-Beit Beitak Egyptian show here:
Third & last (I hope!) is Obama. I don’t miss Bush though, Obama is doing such a great job in acting exacly the same, just a bit smarter! Enough said.
