in response to reader comment: Thinking outside the box (Continued)

First point- Whenever there is a disaster somewhere in the world, we are the first to respond. Just one example- the tsunami in SE Asia. While the UN was having emergency meetings, we were on the ground distributing food and supplies. We expected nothing for that.

As for the stupid comment made by Pat Robertson, it was not a call for his followers all around the world to actually carry out a killing. It was just the stupid musings of a guy who habitually puts his foot in his mouth. No action was ever taken. Fatwas issued by people who are supposed to be men of religion are adifferent story.

I detect anger in your words and very negative feelings toward your country. You are absolutely right. There is no further point in continuing this dialogue.
