The Lone Ranger

It seems that a Kuwaiti writer shares my initial reaction with regards to slogans and the Arabs. Mohamad Al-Rumaihi wrote a self-proclaimed contrarian (vis a vis Arab opinion) piece in the English version of Al-Hayat yesterday, and made the following sober statement:

"The most dangerous thing which might happen to Iraq today is to fall in front of the terrorism of the slogans."

Al-Rumaihi further attempted to counter the most prevalent cliches of the Arab media (as well as of students, intellectuals, and statesmen...)

Wait till he reads Nahid Horr!
