يا كارتر يا نذل

I heard that Sarkozy denied permission for Ben Ali's plane to land in Paris. It also appears he was denied permission to land at three locations before being allowed to take refuge in Saudi Arabia. This song from al Sheikh Imam came to mind immediately when I heard that news. In 1979 the Shah of Iran found out the hard way that his friends weren't prepared to give him refuge when he too was ousted off his peacock throne. This song is about the Shah and his woes after his fall from grace. Truly there is no honour amongst thieves...
