31. Mmmm......Perhaps you are being a bit too insightful....

Your comments about nationalism make no sense, unless you believe there is one single Arab nation, a la what Nasser was going on about back in the day

I was using the word 'nationalism' in the sense of 'the Arab Middle East community'

The vast majority of Arabs in the Middle East consider themselves part of the Ummah...You will remember when Israel invaded the West Bank in the spring of 2002 ordinary people in the Arab world collectively exploded with outrage....Surely that was a clear indication that Arabs do care how Israel treats Palestinians?


You say that ..."using the term Arabs and making such a broad statement seems pretty ridiculous".... So far you have failed to explain why you think it ridiculous.
