I just have a quick question for the Arab population in general: how come your streets are deserted now of any protests or any concern for the genocide going on in Congo currently, where four million lives have been claimed in tribal violence in the last four years?
The West, even if self-interest biased, is at least not biased based on religion or ethnicity, and does protest and shows concern when human rights are abused. No wonder Arabs are humiliated, because they agree to the humiliation of other people who are not like them. Just my two cents worth… Peace for all
