George and his group are harangued by The Bearded One and Mustafa bin Maden,

from "The Adventures of George"

The Bearded One nodded and said “I thank you,
But I know of all this and it is very true
That innocent people are imprisoned here,
Because our enemies are big and are very near.
But the struggle isn’t over, we’ll continue the fight
And in the end we’ll alleviate the plight
Of people in camps, abductions and invasions,
And show them they cannot abuse weaker nations.
And we are not alone, our allies and friends
Are now equipped to stoutly defend
Their lands and their peoples, because they have now
An unparalleled opportunity to unleash a blow
At any adversary, with a network so vast
There is no person or place that they now cannot blast.
And also, dear friends, before you must go
Allow me to introduce a man you should know,
He’s in the next room, I’ll invite him in,
He’s the man I call the second Saladin!”
And who was it that George would meet once again?
None other than his nemesis, Mustafa Bin Maden!
“Again fate has brought us together I see,
And it must be God’s will that it should thus be.
So let me repeat my warning once more,
For I’m sure you realize what will be in store
For you and your people if you do not withdraw
Your decadent influences from all of our shores.
If you refuse, we will use all our network,
To attack, to ambush, to kill, to go berserk
Until non-believers are gone from our lands.
And the destiny of our region is back our hands.
We know that your plan is to control our economy,
To steal our wealth and establish hegemony
And use your customs our society to rupture
By tempting our youth and corrupting our culture”.
George and his friends all listened silently
To these words so intemperate, and presently
Said their farewells and made preparations to go.
Their holiday on the island was over, and so
They had to be back home the following day
In order to get all the club functions underway
