16. Good for you in staying out of the fights
I am going to stay out as well. I was hoping this thread would be an opportunity for each side to discuss their feelings and for the other side to try to see the other sides points. I think the conflict is more about misunderstanding on both sides than real prejudice. The country is changing and sill has many cultural aspects that create conflict between the two groups.

I think both sides have good points.
