Hardly anyone chose the Arab leaders - they imposed themselves - and legitimized often by West - as Mubarak was considered a friend - Blair holidayed with Mubaraks - You obviously have to work with what is there just to live and that is a given - but holidaying? selling arms, giving aid and etc - that is wrong. West should have done more distance itself from dictators rather than "he is our bastard" type friendships.

Palestine is hardly a govt and is a poor extreme example. PLO had no authority, it never did. The region is controlled by Israel. What exactly is it that Hamas does now that is different from before. It was common knowledge those who supported Hamas - whether they chose it or not hardly in the case matters. How can you have a govt without country, law, authority, sovereign and institutions.

I find it astounding you were not able to able to make the difference.

Western sexual morality is wrong and incompatible with Christianity and Judaism. There is difference between morality and what is legal or not. There is difference between treatment of women and sexual morality. You seem to have blurred the distinction and gotten mixed up.

All the juicy questions all you had to come up with was "yeah right"

Western morality is even more degrading overall then it was at Victorian times. The thing with picking and choosing with what you reply to is what you leave out. And you left out that it is sex appeal that is used to sell everything - even to 7yr olds.....

If west was so civilised why all the crime, teen pregnancy, women as sex objects, child exploitation, DRUG abuse, violent crime, domestic abuse, violent crime - the rates are up there as the worst and among the worst.

So why did banking came to near collapse - as all major banking org's were found to be crooked on a crooked and immoral system of banking - that works on interest and debt - rather than actual money.

so why was it that in UK most politician were found to be thieving money from the public. So many went down for it. The "Home Secretary" of UK paid for her husbands pornmag with public money and etc. T he scandal was awesome and of unprecedented corruption. As bad as any in the developed world?

West has OBVIOUS technological and economical advantages. Britain & Europe led industrial revolution built on exploiting Asia through colonial rule. USA itself is an immigrant country with less history than my grandfather. Now the world is looking Asian - with rise of India and China - this advantage will go. Morally bankrupt West already is.

Another thing is passing of biased and totally fraudulent references as credible. It doesn't work. Why do you think I will be interested in those?
