*people don't seem to realise that some of these nations have known nothing other than tribal rule & medieval theocratic dictatorship for hundreds of years. in the case of afghanistan ("kite runner" notwithstanding)... the largest part of the population is barely out of the stone-age. for many of them, women are less constituents than, well... cattle. it is also the world's largest heroin pusher.the lesson here is, in part... cell phones & soft drinks do not a civilisation make.these newly minted, so-called freedom-fighters see us, with all our attendant rights & liberties... as dysfunctional... and, indeed, in most cases, in league with the devil himself.this isn't a sprint... it's an obstacle-laden marathon... consisting largely, in some cases, of herds of quasi-autistic, death-obsessed automata.a relevant question here might be... should whole peoples whose loyalties shake out... 'godhead, clan, family... then country'... be at the pinnacle of anyone's immigration wishlist?*
Neo - you might want to read 'A Woman of Egypt' by Jehan Sadat for her perspective on the Muslim Brotherhood.
