Your electronic arms, your petrochemical arms, your military arms - from 10th June 2014

What a wonderful song:

Laurie Anderson - O Superman

Why do I like this so much? Because of those words I put in the title. Their calmness.

Good sources of information - draft from 27th May 2014

http://www.academia.edu/3225792/Umm_Kulthum  Page down to the article on Umm Kulthum on page 42 written by Hind Soufi Assaf. There are many details about her life I had not read elsewhere.

http://www.furious.com/perfect/oumkalthoum.html A music buff's (Rudy Meixel) surprisingly in-depth analysis of Umm Kulthum's work.

https://www.saudiaramcoworld.com/issue/201201/um.kulthum.the.lady.s.cairo.htm More info, because there is no such thing as too much! The site has all sorts of other information on it about the Arab World, I haven't even started to explore all that yet.

http://www.haaretz.com/umm-kulthum-in-the-men-s-section-1.6857 Synagogues appear to have male singing sessions, the writer speaks to a singer who mixes Arabic songs with the Hebrew ones.

http://iwsaw.lau.edu.lb/publications/al-raida/ The Institute for Women's Studies in the Arab World web site. It has journals full of articles available to look at as pdfs going back to 1976. Amazing. The first one is simply typed.
