Stunning space tourist

"How cool is this?" asks Crusader Rabbit. " It's one thing to make buckets of money--but this lady knows how to spend it on what matters." She sure does.

  1. It is certain that Anousheh Ansari would be killed by her own fellow Muslims who are sympathised with Osama because having money and material things are against their version of Islam. Islamic fanatics hate money , cars, cell phones, TV, laptops, and whatever symbolises the West.

    Well done to Anousheh Ansari, but this made it possible because of Western ideology which she is in, which embraces success but not the fucked-up Muslim ideology, that hate success.
