Shadow1, you were totally right to see and criticize the Sciforums community for it's bias against the Middle East and Islam. They can call you a troll. They can call me a troll but their bias is real and ugly. Congo was and probably still is the most unjust, saddest, cruelest, place in the world but nobody cares. The USA toppled a democracy in Haiti and made Haiti a more dangerous more corrupt poorer place but nobody cares. Meanwhile Iran gets lots of negative attention. Why? I don't know to what degree the West's anti-Islamic hysteria is being created and promoted by powerful interests and to what degree it is natural hostility the "other" coming from the stupid masses. For a while it was fashionable in the USA to say bad things about Venezuela which was totally ridiculous but which makes me think the masses of fools are being given their enemy list by powerful interests rather than choosing their enemies for themselves. For some despite their denials it is their loyalty to Israel that creates the hostility. One guy here is loyal to every underdog unless they are Islamic or Arab. Arguing against majority is harder because simply being the majority creates a certain confidence that the majority can't be completely wrong. The Islamic world is too culturally conservative for my tastes but the strange thing is that the West's cultural conservatives are the most anti-Islamic segment of the West. Other than being more socially/religiously/culturally conservative than I like, I really like the Arabs I have met and their food, music, art, vibes, and warm friendliness. I think we warned you when you arrived here that the anti-Islamic and anti-Middle East bias here might become aggravating. As bad as Sciforums is in this bigotry Sciforums is probably more worldly and less bigoted than the average person in the USA. But forgive these people because they have been brainwashed and don't know any better. In my travels I find that the people all over the world are like each other. They have the same concerns. It is a pity that people everywhere seem to need somebody to hate. I am glad you are here and putting out your point of view. These ignorant people might be slightly less ignorant because you are here.
