in response to reader comment: thanks for your two cents worth

Abdul. Let me ask you this. If The Middle East is the Cradle of Civilization then why are its people so uncivilized? There was a time when I longed to visit that part of the world but I know that will never happen. It's too dangerous for anyone including Muslims to take any kind of tourist trip. What a shame. What's your take on that? And please don't tell me that it's the fault of the West. That's a pat answer and a cop out.
