    Man, that's like blaming modern white people for slavery. It was HORRIBLE but the countries today aren't the same as the ones back then. What standard do I judge by? Technology, secularism, education, etc. Look at Dubai. Dubai is a GREAT example of what the middle east could be. Jordan is a GREAT country and is what iraq and iran should be. Pakistan should be more like India (which rocks!) It's not perfect but it's a start. Now some may say I'm an evil capitalist that wants to spread western culture... well yeah I guess I am! What is the culture of the middle east? Poverty and no booze? Why can't out cultures coexist? Why can't they enjoy western culture and keep their own customs (the good ones, then you'll ask who am I to judge what is good and what is not lol). EQUALITY FOR ALL!

    What is advanced about middle eastern culture? What? What do they have that we are missing out on? When I see America, I see skyscrapers, a stock market, wealth, and happy fat people. When I see the middle east, I see a barren desert with a few top people controlling everything and lots of poor people.

    SO WHAT if Americans have money? Are the worried that our rock and roll and money and scantily clad women are going to corrupt them? Corrupt them of a primitive society in many areas (not all of course)? Get down with the sickness man! What's wrong with western culture and why do they hate it so much? So what if we like sex drugs and rock and roll? Booze is good! Pictures of people are good! The way I see it, God or Allah or whomever anyone follows made alcohol, so it's sort of like a gift to be used and not abused. The naked human body is a beautiful thing (in theory lmao). Men an women are equal. Gays rock! Being secular is a good thing! Stoning is and cutting off hands is BAD!

    I was confusing Muslim and Arab culture, and I'm sorry. I still don't see how we are not more advanced than them. It SUCKS over there! I say let 'em come here if anyone wants to get out of there.

    LOL, true...

    so now must i remove all the beef before the Hindu student arrives in the lunch room,

    must everything be Kosher before the Jewish child sits at the table

    must all the meat be removed before the "veggie" child sits at the table

    or what about the other gazillion different requirements that must exist.... heck I hate the smell of goat cheese, it offends me

    after a while the table will be bare.....then where do we go?

    basically, When in Rome you do as the Romans do or don't go to Rome

    we didn't all of a sudden just start eating ham, but if someone puts a giant cross made of spam in their yard and sets it on fire, or they find a hog's head in their bed..... well then I'm with ya


    unreal....

    JLAP I dont think your an evil capitalist, a bit ethnocentric, but not evil. Western countrys still activly retard the advancement of many iddle Eastern countries. As an example take Saudi Arabia. Now as for Iran, it is a fairily democratic country whose people hate their president. Ahmadinejad got to power by promising to redistribute the oil revenues to the people versus keeping it locked up in powerful hands. He has not carried through on this promise, imagine that a politician who lied. The people are more than likely going to sweep his party out of power completely, but they are doing it through democracy, I consider that pretty advanced. Many manufactured products come from Iran like air conditioners, electronics, and so many other products which are produced in fairly modern factories. The US and many other western nations however will not import Iranian products for mostly political reasons. Iraq, well Iraq is a mess and its not all their fault, the way it was handled was all wrong and everyone but anybody who knew anything about the middle east hence the mess its in now. As for "sex, drugs, and rock and roll" as well as alcohol, they are choices everyone makes and there are many people in the US who chose not to use them and many Christians also think they are "evil" so dont pin that just on Islam. Rejection of those things does not make a culture "primitive". You are only pointing out the bad parts of middle eastern countries. I am not saying they are great I am just pointing out that you are only seeing the bad due mostly to the anti-Islamic slant of our media.

    As for removing everything, if the Muslim students choose to sit alone at a table without anyone eating pork there they have that right and other should not violate it. Just as other groups can sit away from things that offend them.

    I just love how this whole thing revolves around a ham sandwich. Just saying ham sandwich makes me laugh now.
