“You know what I did? I left troops to take the oil. I took the oil. The only troops I have are taking the oil, they’re protecting the oil. I took over the oil.”

  • Le Qatar se lance dans un ambitieux programme pour lutter contre le #Qatar-bashing : Karl reMarks : Qatar Launches Ambitious Nobel Prize Programme, Acquires Einstein For $10mn

    Under the terms of the deal arrived at with Mr Einstein’s heirs, the late scientist will be granted Qatari citizenship posthumously and will be referred to as ‘the German-American-Qatari scientist’. Qatar will acquire the right to use the image of the scientist, known for his theory of relativity and iconic hairstyle, and promote him as one of the leading Qatari scientists.

    In return, Mr Einstein’s heirs receive $10mn which will be used to fund science projects and provide scholarships for science students, preserving the legacy of the Qatari visionary scientist and helping educate other scientists for the future. Distinguished graduates of this programme will be automatically offered Qatari citizenship to help promote the country’s overall contribution to science.

    A similar programme to promote Qatar’s historic contributions to philosophy and thought is being considered, with a possible deal to acquire British Nobel laureate and philosopher Bertrand Russell. It is understood that the deal has been delayed over Russell’s atheism, and a posthumous conversion to Islam is being discussed.
