The isue of the moral code is barely the begining of the comprehension of how different the Islamic mindset is. most of the concepts of Judeao-christian ethos have the opposite meaning in the Islamic culture.

Border: Bush speak: the blue line which both Lebanon and Israel will espect

Nassrallah speak: The line from which new hostilities will start.

compromise: Jews speak: a process in which both sides to a conflict get less than their wishes in order to secure an agreement.

Nassrallah speak: Compromise does not exist in my language.

Truth: Bush speak: the truth always comes out in the end. it is best to come clean right from the get-go

Nassrallah: Truth is what we make of it. If it does not serve us, than bend it.

etc, etc etc So different, the two cannot share a peaceful border, merely armed truce.
