A Bit Strong?

Sorry, guess my comment was a bit strong but sometimes people need a good slap to wake them up to whats happening in our society.

I'm arab so why would I be bias against my brothers, and believe me when I tell you I love the arab world, my country , it's people and Islam. It's for that reason my comment was so harsh but truth in the sense that we can not continue to keep fooling overselves. This article is about arab sex tourism, not american, european or any other country. Why do we always defend ourselves by comparing how worse others are than we are. Why can't we accept the fact that we do have problems with this type of behavior. Why do we always want to hide these facts from the rest of the world, but more importantly even our own world and our ownselves.

I woud never call my brothers deviant but there are some who practice deviant behavior that is against the principles of most all religions including Islam. Arab sex tourism is a fact we can not deny, but what we can do is be more open and honest about it, and take measures to educate the public about safe sex practices which is something lacking in most arab countries. If not, I'm afraid we will be facing something far worse as most of you know.
