Jane Novak's blog about Yemen

Jane Novak a docile pupil of a monkey monk

Filed under: General, Yemen, mentions — by Jane Novak at 11:07 am on Monday, May 30, 2005

Update: My response to the article was published by the Yemen Times here. I appreciate the opportunity they gave me to reply.

Update 2: Apparently the article was snuck past the editors. The Yemen Times published a beautiful article about my journalistic standards with an apology and its here.

Original post: Full page article trashing me in the Yemen Times. This is the headline: Jane Novak a docile pupil of a monkey monk

This is the article that irked the regime at Front Page, also about six other places. This I think is the most complete version. )

I already got the first message, from Robert at Jihad Watch:
“Yes, this is bigger than anything I’ve seen for awhile. Congratulations!”

That’s absolutely hilarious, Jane, you’ve arrived! I think they keep inviting you to Yemen because they can’t touch you over here. They can better and more effectively shut you up if you’re over there.

Jane is pissing off the Yemens
It’s just too much fun. The jihadis don’t like to have attention drawn to what they’re doing, they’re accustomed to killing people who don’t agree with them, or act like dhimmis. Aww. Take a look at her post for today referencing a whole articl…

“docile pupil of a monkey monk”

BWAHAHAHAHA!!! That’s a new one for me; maybe you should make a banner with that one or something! Or at least change your “Large Mammal” code to read “Docile Pupil of a Monkey Monk”?

These people are certifiably nuts. Sure, there are women everywhere who “like being battered.” Maybe he’s referring to his mother, the S&M sex worker? ;)

Hmmm…I guess that counts as a fatwa of sorts.

One American female is taking on the country of Yemen. And, from the reaction, I think she’s winning.

Jane. I m Yemeni, and I belong to zadia community. Believe me what u mentioned in Yemen gathering article is not true.look, Ali Mohsen Alahmr was in contact with CIA at time of cold war, so usa asked him to send men to fight soviet, when these men came back, ali mohsen had to contain them, and ail saleh as well, cz unfortunately if they did not contain them then the royal family of ksa would contain them and use them against democracy in Yemen (knowingly ksa does not support Ali saleh and Ali mohsen cz they established democracy in the very neighboring country of ksa which may lead ppl in ksa to ask for the same democracy)

So Jane we r so hurtted by ur words , ,,and believe me ur new ahmed alchalabi(al hassani) is communist ,he has ties with Russia and china and the mullah of Iran ,,so better baby u keep taking ali saleh and ali mohsen as allies ,if u back the new ahmed chalabi ,,then u will be baking losers ,unfortunately or fortunately Yemen s not Iraq ,,u know abt Yemen ,,millions of children r well trained to use weapons ,,,no call to rise tension between the strategic allies in the war on terror USA and Ali saleh.

This seems to me to be a government guy. In defense of Yemeni President Saleh and top military commander Ali Mohsen he uses the same strategy that they try to sell to the western governments: support this dictator and we will protect you from the terrorists. He doesn’t deny that the Yemeni people are brutalized by the tyrant President Saleh, he only says its in the US interest to support him and not democracy. Also supposed links to Iran (and now China) by the defecting ambasador are supposed to deflect everybody in the West from looking at the internal situation in Yemen. All my research suggests its a really bad and a very brutal situation for the people there in Yemen. And the govt is hooked into al-Qaeda. But thanks for stopping by Yaseen.
