Their ""Arab Spring""'s UPDATES (bloody for some of them...):
Wasim MAZIAK, the world top ««waterpipe»»™ millionaire expert, major (however undeclared…) author of the the WHO flawed report on ““waterpipe”” smoking (“whose two first sentences contain an error and a misquotation…”) and many similar papers, is apparently in need for more money.
"Criminalising Dissent and its Undeclared Motives"
What else ? The fact that he has "won" his job at Memphis University (in which Kenneth Ward, his antiwaterpipe expert, was in charge of funding) was only but "a mere coincidence". By the way, US salaries are also a bit higher than in Syria…. No, please, don't be naughty by making allusions to possible personal interests.... Maziak knows how to make ««waterpipe»»™ studies "sexy” (according to his own word !). In other words, he knows how to draw funding।
“hookah promotion and sales, at least in western societies, are done through the internet (Cobb et al., 2010), and at times are concealed under scientific disguise (e.g. the Sacred Narghile site www.sacrednarghile.com/en/index.php)."
If we, The Sacred Narghile, had received money from the Tobacco industry or the Hookah industry, we would have been so happy and even more happy to openly declare it.
We leave the readers consider the miserable state of this professional defamer (he and his likes: Thomas Eissenberg, Alan Shihadeh and Kenneth: see their pitiful comments on the critique of the WHO flawed report)।
