Michael:

Actually under American sponsored Arab dictatorships, Arabs may have nothing to trade together with other than Dates and camels and probably women..but Michael, the issue is not the west Vs Arabs, we are talking about the West Vs Islam. So it seems you did not catch the point.

For your information if you do not know Arab world in anything but camels and dates, please note that MOROCCO IS THE BIGGEST PHOSPHATE -mineral- producer in the WORLD. Sudan can feed all Europe and Lybia can give one shower a day for every European citizen with Supreme Oil. Japan and the European union rent many moroccan shores for fishing the hight quality fish. Yemen by the way is one of the largest exporters of high quality Shrimps. This is without counting the Yemeni Gat, the Moroccan Tea and Hashish that fills the coffee shops in the netherlands, and the lebanese olive oil and Syrian art tableaux of caligraphy that counts millions of $...

Please let me know if I can teach you some more on Arabic economy..

Thank you very much..
