If people listened to other people they'd learn otherwise obvious things such as the fact that "Guantanamo is Not the Problem," as Claudia Rosett so eloquently observed
in the Philadelphia Inquirer. What this does
show that is not obvious is that both the United States and Israel (and now, in some cases, Britain and parts of Scandinavia) are held not only to a higher standard than the rest of the world, but are also subjected to a double-standard.
Please keep in mind the following terms: dar al-Islam, and dar al-Harb. The two terms'll suit you well the next time you end up being driven by a Muslim cabbie, so throw this word at him as well: dar al-Amn. And don't forget to take with you that spare khimar if you're blind.
