Deal with what is feeding the down-side

Reader comment on item: Hugging Iraq's Leaders

Until, and unless, Iraqis see that any involvement by those who are not Muslim is not interference, they will be making excellent progress into a blind alley.

What stormed out of the Arabian Peninsula about 1400 years ago has contributed a lot to the depths of what is in harmony with the worst angels of the nature of people. So, we come to the situation where they have a long way to go to enjoy the best of the developed world.

It looks like the greatest distance is to be found inside the minds and souls of Muslims.
