And, of course, it's re-assuring to see the new Libya so committed to the Rule of Law. Must be Hillary's influence.Anon.

It is reassuring for us Israelis that Arabs are respectful of legal procedures and human rights. Even Ghaddafi had a fair trial and a court appointed defense laywer. The savage lynching video is Israeli propaganda to dehumanize the noble Arab nation.
Just before Khaddafi was captured there was an article I saw in a UK paper - the Dutch said that he should be tried before an international tribunal, the Russians said that this was an internal affair and other nations should not interfere, etc. Nations really do behave in accordance with stereotypes. The Arabs aren't going to become Swiss any time soon.K
I have been re-reading The Seven Pillars of Wisdom by Lawrence of Arabia, and Arabs are noble, magnanimous warriors of the desert. Ibn-Saud never beheaded an enemy before a council and achievement of just consensus. When he had to behead a large group, he always left the last one alive so he could tell the story. Maybe Lawrence was biased?
When I was in Eilat I was very tempted to slip over the border to visit the Seven Pillars at Wadi Rum.Perhaps next time.Anon.
There is a certain type of Englishman who is wild about the noble Arabs of the desert and detests Jewish shopkeepers. This is usually because the Brit in question is himself a shopkeeper type but would like to be a noble warrior in his head.K
I think Lawrence would fit the bill here, although I do not associate his being down on shopkeepers particularly; and Lawrence did walk the walk. The modern version of this has more to do, I think, with the bounty that nature has placed under the desert sands.Is there no relationship between the type of mass immigration into Europe in general, and the UK in particular, and the incidental fact that the Arabs live on top of a puddle of Crude?I think not.Anon.
