I also like the poll: what are the subtexts to the wikileaks: 1. Contributors believe in freedom of information, 2. Super conspiracy theory/contributors are supporting American interests.

That is the literal translation. Castro is saying it in way that would mean.... (Oh no, I can't believe you can type that!) and "basha" is for extreme respect.
Correct me Castro?

basha is for extreme respect, but in reality in Egypt is normally used as a sort of sarcastic term amongst the "yoot". I translated it as I would like it to apply to me, not Castro telling me that my Arabic is poor (which it is).

intonation is then very important to make the distinction....ya baaasha!

I find this illustration offensive and unnecessary!

Why don't you try illustrating Muhammad in the form of a bomb!

(P.S. if you do, run for your life!)

True, as MrVertigo just said, intonation is what would make the difference. Police officers are usually called basha for instance.

It does not take a lot to recognize that "Jaws" and "Jews" are similar words... and the cartoon is actually not antisemitic in my eyes, but makes fun of the ridiculous Egyptian claims "that the mossad must be behind it"...

I respect your sensibility. I think we can laugh about everything but not with everyone.
Made the same joke in another thread without knowing Pho's post.
