This is why Arabs get no respect [Archives:2004/743/Letters to the Editor]
Ali Saeed, i.e., one of your writers was right! The Western World has absolutely no respect for Arabs or Islam when Arab and Muslim leaders bow down and kiss the storm-trooper boots of America and Israel. It does no good for countries like Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Turkey to have all those military weapons (from the West) if they have no intelligence and courage to defend the Islamic World. And if Muslims don't learn how to make their own weapons, they will always be at the mercy of their enemies. Israel has just come up with a new laser weapon that shoots down missiles. It is this technology that gives little tiny Israel the power to stand up and be respected by all the nations of the world.
