EVERYBODY IS FOR THEM AND AGAINST US | 2003-03-15
In September 11, 2001 - MY ARAB SYMPATHIES, I explained that I have always had a special sympathy for Arabs. This comes from the days when Arabs and Southerners were looked upon as non-human. Europe, Yankees, Holly wood, everybody hated Southerners and everybody was fanatically pro-Israel and anti-South.
Now that many European cities have an actual majority of Arab residents, the total dedication to Israel of those days has been forgotten today. But back then, at least an Arab could understand how it felt to have everybody against you.
But I also noticed that Arabs didn't LIKE being lumped with Southerners. Whenever any Arab could do so he would denounce the South and bask for a moment in the approval of fashionable opinion.
