As Paul Harvey had been known to say, the backward, tribal, Muslim Ottoman/Arab is neither ready for nor capable of a stable, free, elected government. The terrorist attackers of September 11th used that which their culture could never have invented to destroy that which their culture could never have built. The Iraqis, for example, have recently received a gift of self-determination that they did not really want and will not be able to properly care for.

Well if the Arab-Muslims and other Muslims are, as Paul harvey used to say: “the backward, tribal, Muslim Ottoman/Arab is neither ready for nor capable of a stable, free, elected government”, then why is the US, Israel and Europe trying to broker a “peace deal” 15 years after the Oslo Peace accords? What is the point? The Palestinians are nowhere near an agreement and they are divided between HAMAS and the more “moderate” P.L.O., called P.A.? They are not yet a civilzation ripe for peace or nation building. Killing Jews, yes, building a viable society? No.
