bin Laden in a Romanian church

Posted on 03 May 2011 by Codrin Arsene

As expected, the news that Osama bin Laden has been killed made it around the world in a heartbeat. In the light of this event, some Romanian journalists did some research and discovered that there is a church in the western part of Romania (Timisoara) where an image of Osama bin Laden is actually painted on the walls. Bin Laden can be seen “riding” a plane, with a pitchfork in his hand while attacking one of the World Trade Centers. Whoever thought painting this inside a christian orthodox church was not thinking properly. In fact, one may suggest, he wasn’t thinking at all. Check the disturbing pictures yourself.



Woooow. That’s all I have to say.

    Have you actually seen this? If this story is really true, it is quite obvious that somebody is not “thinking properly” as you actually said.

Quote of the Day

With literature, sometimes a book is presented in the media as being say, a Muslim story or an African story, when essentially it’s a universal story which we can all relate to it, no matter what race or social background we come from. (Shawn Johnson)

This Vanguard reportage deserves to be seen.

I don’t normally post things that are not Africa-related but this young man from Taiwan is simply amazing. Lin Yu Chun participated in a Taiwanese version of the American Idol called Super Star Avenue, singing the song I will always love you by Whitney Houston. I’ll keep it short: his version of the song is clearly better than what Mrs. Houston is capable of singing right now. Some dubbed him the “Susan Boyle of Taiwan” and there might just be something of this young man. Check it out yourselves. I’m sure you’ll be surprised as well.

To all of us who have experienced the adventure that is a boda-boda (motorcycle-taxi in East Africa, primarily in Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi and DR Congo)
