Difference between Mort and Sheikh

Reader comment on item: Morton Klein's Statement on Qatar
in response to reader comment: Qatar is a wolf in sheep's clothing

Submitted by Prashant, Feb 11, 2019 at 21:08

Dear Dr Pipes, I agree with your reader Dave's parable about the Sheikh and Mort. Dave tells us that in the end Mort took the first flight out of Doha and ran away. Therein lies the difference between the Sheikh and Mort. Mort ran away. Even when he faces one thousand Morts, Sheikh will not run away. He will deploy Taqiya, make temporary treaties, build Strength, convert some Morts by spirituality, bribe, force or marriage, increase his numbers and then launch an attack.
