The West's hubris when it comes to passing judgement on others' cultures is so evident all over this message board. EVERYTHING that Westerners--and especially Americans---accuse Arabs of they have either done or are currently doing themselves. Yes, the Arabs are different, but jeez, just let them be what they want to be. The West has no corner on virtue or morality.
