    Dr. Shabaan,
    Actually the American people deserve whatever trouble and misery the US government causes them because they elect their governments in relatively free, open democratic elections. They have alternatives to the usual low-life politicians they regularly elect to office, but they persist in voting against their own interests. Unfortunately, through their voting, americans also decide to interfere in the affairs of other nations.

    In other words, it is people in the rest of the world outside the US that do not deserve the injustice and oppression imposed upon them, directly or indirectly, by the United States government. After all, the Palestinians, Egyptians, Jordanians, Saudis, Iraqis, and Afghans did not elect the US government, but must suffer because of it. The body politic of the US is basically selfish, ignorant, and nationalistic, a bad combination in a country so powerful as the US. Since there is little hope that US voters will suddenly become open-minded, educated and just, let us hope that the US loses its wealth, power, and influence, which it has so flagrantly abused by abusing others.

    No bigger truth than yours brother! I have been saying it for years- and am always criticized and hated for enunciating this truth: IT IS THE PEOPLE WHO ARE THE PROBLEM. Their govt MIRRORS what the American people are, its not the source.
    The naricissism, selfishness, bigotry, pettiness and basic corruption of the US citizen is boundless and from there rises upward.

    They will move in rage if their conveniences are threatened or if cable TV is turned off.

    But Abu Ghraib lynchings, slaughter houses of organ stealing, genociding millions in the arab world? The suffering moves these sows not one iota. Just bring on the booze, the porn and the remote and who cares if the world goes to hell?

    Precisely. The US government and its foreign policy are a valid reflection of the US body politic. To condemn the US government and its policies without condemning the US electorate (population) is silly and misleading.

    It is so sad to see the highly educated Dr Shabaan sink to the level of being the propaganda minister of the criminal government of Syria and then receive a platform on this website. You are indirectly participating in the war crimes of her boss, Assad. This message from her is not consistent with the democratic rights of Palestinians for freedom.
