You have got two choices: the West and the Middle East; we have no choice. Wait a second, I am glad I don't have the choice to go to the Middle East. Westerners get beheaded in the Middle East. You have got a wonderful BMW. What point are you trying to make? Bin Laden was rich, wasn't he? You are living well in the West. Fine. Then, you should be grateful. You are going to "play tennis". So what? There are a lot of rich Arabs who play tennis, drive their BMWs and plan terrorist attacks.........
Thanks for the proverb. If you know so many good proverbs, then find out one about hypocrisy.
