I am an Arab, yes we are the big liars.

Reader comment on item: Middle Eastern Political Candor

With my respect to Prince Hasan, yes we love lying, Dr Pipes knows us very well, lying became a prestige in our culture... for example, if a European or an American lies and caught, he or she will be socially isolated, the society will drop him or her out... but the case is different here in our culture, the liars, the thieves, the corrupted are well treated when they have money, and they have the best social treatment...

For anyone who dealt with Arabs, I think this is clear.
