Man, I just managed to hit all of your wrong buttons. Ah well, it's one of those days, sorry.
apology accepted, and you're a lot more reasonable than most; i just hope people stop and think and qualify before they act. not every arab hates westeners and is out there cheering in the streets. some of them feel as numb and sick as you or i do right now.
like you say. it's one of those days. i just hope this doesn't end up being one of those weeks.
