Reader comment on item: The Sick Middle East

What an incredible article. The more I learn about the reality of life in Islamic nations, the more I come to believe that the entire Islamic world suffers from a case of Stockholm Syndrome. At first people must have been horrified at the conquerors, complied to live, and then just went through the phases of identification that completely enveloped their minds from generation to generation. Talk about income inequality. With water resources drying up one day people will just begin dying in the streets. Then what? Sicker people will spread viruses faster and one day the mega rich won't be safe from their own people rioting in the streets. They will shoot in vain because they won't be able kill them all. We can't stop this train but we can bring our people home before it crashes into the station! Do our leaders have the courage to face the truth?
