    Hello, Sunny. Today the thought came unbidden to me, “Hey, what ever happened to that Sunny, who preached about solidarity by wearing a hijab?” An online search led me here, where I watched your video on Venezuelans eating their pets. But the lighting on your video kept varying between dark and bright, in an annoying way. It took me a while to figure out why: You are sitting before a sunlit window, and as you move your reflective white forearms in and out of the sun, the degree of illumination in the room goes up and down. Damn white privelege!

    If you want to return to the topic of how to help out our Muslim brethren and sistern, feel free to borrow ideas from the following email I wrote today to my pal Saad Mohammed of CAIR:

    Dear Saad “Dr. 80” Mohammed:

    Take a look at the Wikipedia article on

    You will notice from this article that there is no universal symbol for “halal”. As seen in the accompanying photographs, in France the halality of a food merchant is advertised bilingually in roman lettering HALAL and with the Arabic inscription حلال. Meanwhile, in China the corresponding term is 清真.

    Contrast this with the simple, universal symbol for kosher comestibles, seen here:

    This “hexer” circle-U brand is distinctive and clear. Moreover, it is a universal symbol, with no need for translation into different languages.

    Note that this circle-U emblem is similar to the circle-C emblem of the TV network

    Why the similarity? Well, a lot of comedians and comedy writers are Jewish, so maybe that’s the connection. As an official of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), you should get the CAIR Bureau of Investigation to look into this.

    One idea for a universal halal symbol would be to copy this branding idea, with an H inside a circle. But unfortunately, H could stand for “haram” as well as for “halal”. You’d think that Allah (peace of Muhammad be upon him) would have anticipated this when he invented the Classical Arabic language of the Quran. Even the ancient Chinese were more clever than this; ask me some time about the two Chinese characters for “swallow”.

    What this situation calls for is a contest. I’m sure the students at your madrassah

    could come up with a few good design ideas, but for more universal participation in a contest to come up with a universal symbol for “halal”, maybe CAIR could sponsor a nationwide — or even ummah-wide — prize contest. To drum up even more buzz, we could open the contest to kafirs too; a lot of them will be eager to take part. And to prove our ecumenical bona fides, we could offer special prizes to our kafir contestants, in a tie-in with the National Pork Board

    (As you can read there, the United States Department of Agriculture imposes a jizya-like tax, of 40 cents per $100 market value, on all American pigs, so there’s no reason why some of this tax money can’t be used to promote Islam.)
