One of the most successful programs on the Fox TV
Network is something called Joe Millionaire. It has an interesting
premise, they take a regular guy, put him in a mansion with a butler, and
riches. They tell a group of single women that he is a millionaire and they
compete for his attention. At the end he picks one but he has to tell them that
he is really broke. The only problem with the show is that if it is a
success it you can't do
it again. After all the buzz about the show no one could ever fall for it
again.until now, last week Fox announced Joe Millionaire 2.
Apparently Fox kept all reports about the first
show away from Europe, no broadcast no PR --nothing! So they will be doing Joe
Millionaire 2 with an American guy and women from Europe. Fox didn't
announce why they picked Europe for the ruse but I suspect it was a direct
result of a long running European show, a program that is also based on the
premise that someone is not who they appear to be---it's called Yassir
At first glance you may think the premise of Yassir Peacenick is too wild, but
this show has been popular in Europe, especially with its leadership, for
almost 40 years.
Here is the idea behind the show: The father of modern terrorism, born in
Egypt, makes people believe that he is Palestinian. Now here is the
unbelievable part: despite the fact that he openly provides them with
information to the contrary, Yassir the Egyptian convinces Europe that he is a
peacenik. And the more horrific his terror, the more his pockets get lined
with European aid and Europe's belief in his peace intentions
To succeed in this show he needs to walk a fine
line. If he does make peace or if European leaders become convinced that he is
only interested in terror, he loses all the money in the Swiss banks. As you
can see this concept can be much more successful than Joe Millionaire because
it can be repeated over and over---and it has.
The Program really hit its stride three years ago; a peace deal between Yassir
Peacenik and Israel was imminent, every one thought that the show would be
over, but just in the nick of time, he not only broke the peace but he
convinced Europe that it was Israel's fault, because a member of the Israeli
government, Ariel Sharon (who is now the Prime Minister) had the nerve
of visiting Judaism's holiest site. What a master manipulator Yassir Peacenik
There is even written evidence that shows that
while professing peace, Europe's favorite
showman has personally ordered terror acts that
have targeted Israel's children, women and aged. Israel has shown European
leaders proof that
"Arafat was personally involved in the planning and execution of
attacks. He encouraged them ideologically, authorized them financially and
personally headed the Fatah Al Aqsa Brigades organization. Arafat and
his men used the funds donated to them by other countries, including the
European Union, to finance terrorist activity. The Palestinian
Authority allocated vast sums of money from its budget to pay salaries to
Fatah terrorists ($45 million a month from Arab countries, $9 million a
month from the European Union"

A few months ago it looks like some hope would come out of the "Road
Map" process. At the same time, many of the key players were said
that it was becoming too obvious that Yassir was a terrorist not a peacenik.
But even after seeing some movement towards peace, European nations such as
France demanded that Arafat be allowed back in the show.
French Foreign Minister De Villepin said "we will keep our contacts with
Arafat in his being a legitimate representative for the Palestinian
authority." With support like that Arafat was able to oust the new
Palestinian Prime Minister, and unleash his terrorist on network to once again
target Israeli children. At the same time he has convinced much of Europe that
Israel should not be able to defend itself or even build a fence to keep the
terrorists from its children. This guy is great at what he does-- no wonder he
has remained a European favorite for decades.
Unfortunately it seems that the show may
finally be cancelled, not because of lack of viewer interest or even because
of peace, but there are rumorsthat Yassir Peacenik is very ill. I think
that Europe knew about Yassir's illness for a very long time . You see,
over the last few years they have been working on a replacement program, it's
a revival of a classic European hit that is two thousand years old; its
called, "Blame the Jews for Everything". Word is that the show
will be directed by famous actor/director Mel Gibson. Joe Millionaire could
never be as successful !
