    Shawn Rae’s Christmas CD, A World Christmas, Love Knows No Borders, the first Christmas CD from the Muslim world with respect for Christianity that is being advertised in New York Times Square. It is intended to be a positive message of interfaith harmony, which affects over half of the population of the world, as opposed to the despicable act of the Times Square failed bombing attempt. In contrast, the latter would have caused untold misery, death and destruction, which would only escalate the existing strife in the world.

    And if I could have three wishes
    And if my first wish came true
    There’d be peace on earth
    Good will among men
    And love in all that we do
    (Times Square Video Music – Christmas Wishes – Shawn Rae – Christmas CD)

    Shawn Rae Interview News 10 ABC – California


    Shawn Rae is Interviewed in California regarding his Christmas album, A World Christmas, Love Knows No Borders. Christians, Jews & Muslims worked side by side in making the Christmas Album. Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs, Zoroastrians and people from many other faiths applauded this effort towards interfaith harmony that affects half the population of the world. Shawn Rae’s message, as a cross-cultural ambassador, is to help keep the “dialogue” of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia & Pope Benedict XVI alive. The “Dialogue” was endorsed by 460 organizations and the United Nations.

    America is not “the oldest democracy in the world”, Shawn.  But why should we Brits, Greeks etc split hairs? There are some more worthy claimants for this distinction here.  It’s at The Guardian, so ignore the fact that the writer thinks both Britain and America aren’t democracies. Typical Guardianisto-think.  I bet he thinks Cuba IS!

    Anyway, good for you, Shawn. I hope the CD sells well.

    These Christmas shoppers (in Canada I understand) got more than just fries with their meals.

    Great stuff, isn’t it? Nice to see pros and to hear some real talent, don’t you think?

    Btw, regulars will know I’m a soft touch for a good lyric and an expressive singer. Well, here’s one of my favourite love songs from one of today’s and yesterday’s best and most popular musical talents. Especially for lovers who cannot be together this Christmas –

    Barry Manilow – Weekend In New England [1978]

    Is that a bead of sweat on his cheek at the end? Whatever, it touches all the right buttons, whether you’re in New England or Old Arabia.

    “All countries need a leader who isn’t afraid to fight terrorism. I believe Mr. Blair did a necessary job in helping his allies. Are we all just supposed to lie down and wait for them to come for us, I don’t think so.”

    And – “Mr. Blair is one of the finest politicians to have had the privilege of serving the United Kingdom, and Britons are fortunate to have had him as their Prime Minister. Time will show that Mr. Blair’s approach to affairs in the Middle East were and remain correct. From a member of the Commonwealth, thank you, Mr. Blair, for your continued service to legitimate and lasting (and not convenient or politically expedient) freedom.”

    AND – “Tony Blair was the greatest Prime Minister since Winston Churchill and the only regret I have he didn’t get my vote as I live in Canada.”

    AND – “I am sick and tired of television and radio interviewers asking the same old questions over and over, regarding the decision to go to war in Iraq, presumably they hope Mr Blair will let slip some secret information which they would then use against him. History will show if the decision was the right one, (I believe it was) but people must accept that Tony Blair is an honourable man, and made his decision based on the known facts and not with the benefit of 20/20 hindsight.”

    1. Peter Reynolds Says:

      Barry Manilow?!?

      I have no words.

      En garde!

      Is it not time that Ol’ Tone distanced himself from the vile dissembler in the Vatican?


      • keeptonyblairforpm Says:

        You’re not challenging me to swords at dawn, are you, Peter? Over Manilow? He’s great. A communicator. You know I love communicators.

        Give Tony a chance. He’s only been a catholic five minutes. What do you want him to do now – become a Muslim?

        And less of the ol’ if you don’t mind.

        Wrapped all your pressies yet?

    2. Caren Says:

      Shawn Rae is doing magnificent work based on what I saw above! I applaud people like him who are doing great work and putting themselves on the line for a better world! You go Shawn!

      Here’s the interview of Shawn Rae on SyndicatedNews.NET

      • keeptonyblairforpm Says:

        Thank you for this. I found this intriguing:

        The Album was inspired by the “Dialogue” in 2007 between King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia and Pope Benedict XVI.

        King Abdullah, despite ruling over a ‘non-democracy’ in the Middle East, seems to be on the right side,

    4. Rob Says:

      Dave Brubeck we can agree on. Morecambe and Wise ditto. But Barry Manilow?

      I’m going to have to go and listen to my compilation of Eurovision winners to recover my composure.

      • keeptonyblairforpm Says:

        @ Rob,

        Manilow would never have won the Eurovision. Too good.

        I DO like good lyrics, and these are good. And, btw, he could knock most of the Simon Callow kids into shape as far as popular singing goes too.

        Update: as Julie has just pointed out to me here I got the wrong Simon in this comment. It should have been Simon Cowell.

        Sincere apologies. To Mr Callow.

    5. Julie Says:


      I think you meant Simon Cowell!

      • keeptonyblairforpm Says:

        You’re right, Julie. I did. Fancy confusing a great actor – Callow – with a pretentious over-self-hyped, talentless oaf like Cowell. I suppose I should go and correct that now. Will do asap.
