The world should never forget what happened to the Jews in WW2 or any other inhumane acts in history. Denying such things damages our collective humanity and is totally insensitive to all those who lost loved ones. "Our primary purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them at least don't hurt them" - Dalai Lama.
I was saying that Arabs are not alien creatures whose "minds don't work as ours," whoever "our" is supposed to be. Dehumanization is reserved for sworn enemies in the midst of mortal struggle. If you, or anyone else, considers all Arabs as your sworn enemy then that is your rather considerable problem.
Cultural differences don't mean people can't understand each other and pretending they do is a particularly transparent ploy for those who don't want to.
Intelligent people don't need explanations. the prove is darkside & misha interpreted what I meant. <text removed - no personal attacks in the Forums.> But I will take the trouble to explain to you, my child. 'Our mind' : occidental <western Theirs :oriental< eastern Different cultures, different upbringing
For your record, I like arab people and understand them. If you don't THAT'S YOUR PROBLEM! And I'm not American. and I'm happy not to be. Thank you
Sure they do. You just have to find their analogs in your society. There's little difference in the though processes of a Christian Fundamentalist and an Islamic one. They get their cues from different belief systems, sure, but at their base they both believe that a written holy book is the only star to which you orient your life.
One man in a government is a Holocaust denier. You can't by any stretch of the imagination say that because Ahmadinejad is a Holocaust denier that the entire Iranian population is. When it's all said and done people are individuals and you can't make too many broad assertions about them. Well you can, but you'd be wrong.
Having read fishinfreaks profile, I am very suprised that he finds himself being so judgemental. As somebody who has had so many apparent problems himself, I would have thought that he would be more understanding of the problems facing others.
Im not saying that he is not fit for a debate tantrum, I am saying that I am very suprised that he is so judgemental against those facing hardship when he has faced so many of his own. E.g. Caster Semenya. I am actually backing your corner.
LOL They are Persian, and they identify themselves as Persian, this is what matters And if most American and European people are ignorant of this, you do not have to contribute to it, especially considering your rants about American ignorance
I can always spot a Somalian, and often a Nigerian..... but I seem to have a knack for that. I have even correctly guessed peoples origins to a UK city before.... without them opening their mouths. Especially people from Liverpool and Newcastle, can often spot them quickly....
People from Britain can often spot somebody from Russia or eastern Europe too...... doesn't matter where you are from or the colour of your skin, we almost all have certain characteristics which show our heritage I think....
I noticed that, too - when I lived in the South, people do look different. I suppose that this is an example of the complexity - my nationality is English. However, my ethnicity is not - in the North West, we are mainly Nordic rather than Saxon.
Welcome to the world !! anger is here to stay. Blame it on the oil if you want. Of course they hate you americans! and i'm sorry. But that's all there is. Not commenting further as I'm not american. I don't lack respect for other countries and their citizens.
you are so base I can't believe it. I'm saying I'm not american Because I don't I come from a third world country so I know what I'm talking about. You come from 'the american dream' that more than a dream is a nightmare. shame you're so brainwahed ,you can't see reality. And this is my last word.
Hehehe you see I'm not a robot, my judgement is fair and square and I dont want to say about the ways of the Arabs and bad things about 'em for I have no right to say that... but you've just shown racism here and you just hurled the Americans a racial slur... What a pity...
And oh how I wish you'll not be flagged with your remarks here hehehe... Now whose lacking in judgement and who is biased hehehe you're eating your words buddy...
the above are your words:'but you've just shown racism here and you just hurled the Americans a racial slur... What a pity...' I've not been offensive. I'm sure you hope someone flags me. And I'm not racist at all! I have a lot of american friends that think just the way I do. Are they racists too? And America is not a free country ? Can't I have my say ? you're way out of reason. I'm sorry if you don't understand !
We feel things, we all bleed, we all cry, we all love - no matter what we say, we all feel and it is better to feel LOVE than it is to feel HATE - that is universal wouldn't you agree - (my own words!)
I apologize for my offensive comments. Sorry if someone felt touched I don't care if nobody listens. It's up to them. I have an audience out of here, so it's all right by me. I don't care for personal attacks. all attacks are welcome. I like good fights. I'm not afraid of saying what I think I hate censorship
Oh For God Sake ! It is recorded in History who were those people dumped in big holes? Rag dolls? My friend's mom also stays with us full-time she is Jewish, 80 years old and lived through the bombings of London her parents family members were sent to concentration camps and murdered by the Nazis in Poland and Lithuania it is not a Facid it is real! Ignorance can be blind.
@ misha When someone says ther's hunger in Africa, We know that maybe he's talking of Somalia When someone says there is this problen with arabs and their oil, maybe he's talking about Irak. That's what I mean
The Jews,Gypsies,Homosexuals,Jehovas Witnesses,Disabled, Free masons and many others were put into concentration camps at the hands of the nazis and still we get people who deny that it happened. Why do they do they...
I can't wait to read about how big of a joke the (Norwegian) Nobel Prize selecting committee is and that since nazi Germany loved Hitler and so many love Obama, it logically makes Obama Hitler.Can you people be proud...
