Group Description

Arab-American Girls

"Maysoon Haddad, an Iraqi American, is fascinated by Super Tuesday. She represents many Arab Americans and many people living abroad who are impressed with Americans' respect for the rule of law in electing politicians: "As an American originally from Iraq, I watch Super Tuesday, admire the system, appreciate real democracy and hope to see the same thing happening in Iraq.""

"The eleven stories, each a jewel, accumulate almost magically into what is almost a novel. It would make a good movie. It is an insightful and compassionate view of events wondrous, sad, funny, wry,and uniquely "ethnic" in the lives of a Christian Arabic family over nearly a century, told as fiction but picturing many of the author's relatives whom she knew or heard about as a child. We follow them as they move from "the old country" (Syria and Lebanon) in the late nineteenth century to Los Angeles and the twentieth century, indeed to our own decade."

"A love story set in the Arab-American community of Los Angeles. Thirty-nine-year-old Sitine, never married, lives with a devoted Iraqi-immigrant uncle and works as a chef in a Lebanese restaurant. Her passions are aroused only by the preparation of food´┐Żuntil an unbearably handsome Arabic literature professor starts dropping by for a little home cooking."

This group was previously reclassified by Yahoo for a mature audience only. We recognise that Rihanna, Beyonce, Christina, Britney, Madonna et all sing and dance for the benefit of all, so we shall try again to run a squeaky clean e-group on this topic.

One of a series of sthenographic groups that espouse the cause of women everywhere. The title is not prescriptive but suggestive.

Spam is kept out, messages are edited for grammar, spelling and punctuation. No coarse language is allowed although euphemisms are encouraged.
