I don't detest the West, not at all. I just don't like the hate and ignorance that is spewing from it. I don't condone violence or killing of ANY kind. I don't think that immigrants going to any country and disrupting it is right in any way, people should respect the laws and way of life of a country if they choose to live in it.

As for the war in Iraq, of course it was wrong. Your president lied to you and sent your youth to die for a lie, this is very sad. I feel very sad for the families of soldiers who have died there. I feel bad for all the people who are dying there daily all because of materialistic greed and a lie.

I'm sad for you that you will never get to see the Pyramids, for they are truly amazing and a real wonder, I'm sad you will never get to visit Jordan and Petra for it too is breathtaking.

Like I said we don't detest the West, Westerners are most welcome to visit our countries, just not to try and invade us - we don't like being invaded. There is a great difference between coming to see our country and coming to "liberate" us as a front for coming to steal something.
