Burkas at the mall offend me...but nobody seems to notice. Why is all this a one way street with Muslims? “Their” way or the highway?
Crossing one’s legs insults Bedouins, not high ranking diplomats, and it is ONLY an insult if you show them the sole of your feet when doing so.
We are insulted by their lack of personal hygiene and their tendency to blow up innocent people.
I guess we are even.
“Showing the soles of your shoes is the ultimate insult in the IsloF diplomatic protocol”
It is hardly an insult as they are schooled in our cultural norms, too, and know not to read anything into it, and the Bedouins, NOT diplomats, are insulted.
But I get your point.
