Arabs are the stars!
Ted Rudow, Menlo Park, CA
The world has to pay attention to its troubles and the plight of the poor when the poor finally rebel. They can't say, "Let them eat cake!" when they're storming the Bastille! Those poor Arabs with their righteous cause in fighting for their lands that have been stolen from them! The Turks surrendered, the French surrendered, the British surrendered, the Germans have surrendered, and the Americans have pretty much surrendered …, but it looks like the Arabs are not going to surrender this time!--At least, not yet.
They could never have made their rebel under a more favourable world climate than at the present moment. I mean the Arabs had to take some action. They had to put the pressure on, or nobody would even listen! Otherwise, most of the world couldn't care less. It's very interesting, very exciting to see what's going to happen, but very sad for the poor kids that have to suffer the brunt of it in the front lines, be they Arabs or Jews. War is hell, no matter how you look at it!--And it's always the youth who suffer most! But it does bring decisions, and it does make changes, and it does precipitate crises.
America's in trouble no matter which way she stands! But the Arabs are the rising star the up-and-coming.
