Yemen in American eyes [Archives:2003/677/Viewpoint]

October 16 2003

Several days ago, I was talking with an American friend who had just returned from the USA. I wanted to talk to him longer about how Yemen is the eyes of Americans. I do know that the Western media has intentionally or unintentionally caused a lot of damage to Yemen's reputation. My American friend admitted that indeed, most Americans only know Yemen as a haven for terrorists and the Arab country where Osama bin Laden came from.
“Some may even think that Yemen is a country where people use donkeys and camels to get along.”” he openly said.
