Arab Parallel Universe

At Rantings of a Sandmonkey, there is a wonderfully funny post about how Arabs view the world. The thesis is that the Arabs are operating not in the "real" universe, but in a parallel universe (the Arab Parallel Universe, or APU), where all the same events happen but the reality, causes and reasons are different. The APU has 7 rules:

1) Arabs never make mistakes, and they rarely lose wars.
2) The Zionists and the Americans are always to blame for everything that is wrong in the APU.
3) If there is any credit at all that can be contributed to Arabs in any way, they will take it.
4) Good leadership is inversely related to how US-friendly a leader is!
5) Any media that is not the official state-owned media is filled with Zionist, Jewish, American, Christian, imperialist, anti-arab influences and they LIE ALL THE TIME!
6) There is really no need for elections in the APU, because Presidents and rulers are presidents and rulers for life.
7) The only viable alternative candidate to the current leader or president is this current leader or president’s son.
