Fantasy is all right, and a good phantastic story can be fun but, when you do harm to people, then the fun ends and criminal conduct or mental illness begins. For example, al-Qaeda and the Taliban have gone far from Islam to do harm to people and their property. However, what is little known is the following,…”June 2, 2010 – The perfect example is Al Qaeda, defining themselves against Iranian religious leaders. by clerics,  so they don’t have to look to mulas  for interpretation of Islam.

Overview: This is the colourful story of the marriage of a landowner (returned from exile) and a gypsy girl who is revealed as the daughter of a Turkish Pasha, and the rightful owner of a hidden treasure. It involves a fortune-telling Romany Queen, an absurdly self-important Mayor, a rascally Commissioner, a Military Governor, a band of Gypsies and a troop of Hussars…Attribution is Wikipedia… So lets  pick up the plot in the middle of the story…” Why, Mr. Barinkay you seem to be in an excellent mood. In spite of my veto you haven’t put aside this gypsy whore.

BARINKAY/ Choose your words better, sir. She is my wife!

CARNERO/ Then who wedded you?

BARINKAY/ Who wedded us? Well, tell him.

SAFFI/ You tell him!

BARINKAY/ The cathedral warbler, he wedded us.  In the cathedral of blue above us.

SAFFI/ Look at it how glorious, full of splendor and majesty.

BARINKAY/ Strewn with golden stars, with golden stars as far as you can look.

SAFFI/ And gently the nightingale sang its song to the night. Love is a force from heaven.

CARNERO/ And who was the witness there?”

BARINKAY/ Who was the witness? Well, tell him.

SAFFI/ You tell it!

BARINKAY/ Two storks they cackled loudly.

BARINKAY/ They greeted us with loving fondness.

SAFFI/ They nodded and looked at us so wisely.

BARNIKAY/ As if to say, love, love one another, you are  now pronounced man and wife.

SAFFI/ Never, ever forget, the stork has often brought a little baby to a house. Where love is, love, the force of joy from heaven has brought happiness with good luck, where the nesting stork makes her home.

CHORUS SINGS/ Love, love is the force from heaven.

CARNERO  SAYS  SARCASTICALLY/ A nice betrothal ceremony!
