Arab and Jew - conversations in Nevada - to be continued
The short, brown skinned man (who wouldn't tell me his country of origin, only that he has traveled extensively do to his work) was vehement in his belief that "those people" i.e. Hamas, al Qaeda, Saddam Hussein, were terrible people who would do anything, including endanger the lives of children, to get into power. He felt the Israeli attack was necessary. He also felt our U.S. troops in Iraq were necessary - both to "protect" the people.
The Jewish man was as vehemently opposed to the Israeli army attacking Gaza, as he was opposed to our troops occupying Iraq.
