You're agreeing with me. Why should I be embarrassed?Wrong. You are embarrassing yourself for each post. Time to either stop or open a few books. Wikipedia is not going to help you here. I happen to be a Meccan Hashemite. Yes it was hereditary within the family/clan. Like in every other dynasty be it European or non-European. No, people ALL over the world firstly identified with their religion, ethnic group and larger family rather than a nationality. Nationalities is a new concept.
The Husseins and Sauds were both allies of the Brits; yet while the Husseins were away, busy with the Arab Revolt and subsequent peace talks, the Sauds conquered territory. (That was the backstabbing and betrayal.) Once their conquest of the interior peninsula was completed the Ikhwan, to whom the Sauds owed so much, "revolted" and were then gunned down by the Sauds' household troops, who had received armored cars and machine guns from the British.Betrayal? What betrayal are you talking about? Which own army? Are you drunk?
You really have to be specific here.What it all goes down to is the fact that very little of the European literature about the Middle East let alone non-Europe is accurate. Especially the literature written before WW2.
We do have a problem in that the Sauds' influence in academia - they are a very important source of funds - has been prevalent for decades and that often discourages close scrutiny.English literature about KSA still lacks in quality and material although some of the lesser known literature is better than the examples given in the article highlighted in this thread.
The mass demonization of Jews has been eagerly subscribed to by millions of Arabs for decades. If you're aware of this yet not actively working against it, then you accept it - that is, you're part of the problem.Also since you claim to be a Jew you should know the history/position of Europeans and their attitude towards the Jews. If anything the Jewish demonization is an European invention.
Almost. You're confusing "nurture" with "nature". A single letter can make a very big difference.Besides tell me why I should further waste my precious time on you? Are you not the same Zionist who claimed that all Arabs (or were it Palestinians?) were violent by nature and wanted to kill every single Jew a few months ago?
No doubt, no doubt. Yet if you can bring forward specifics that I fail to shoot down, maybe that can change - and if you can't do that, maybe I'm not in error or simpleton at all, yes?No matter how articulate you think you are (or try to appear as) then you will remain a simpleton on many issues -
