Sandmonkey: Uncomfortable Questions

Sandmonkey has a good post from the point of view of a libertarian Arab living in Egypt:

I asked him what he would've thought, if a Hezbollah rocket had attacked a building in Israel, killing 55 civillians, of which 30 were children. He responded immeidtely "I would've thought it was great! A7san!". So I repeated the same question to 8 other co-workers, and the responses so far have been as follows: 7 said they would celebrate, and 2 said that such an attack would've been bad, but justified! Yeah! Not a single person said that the death of any civllian, on either side, is an equal tragedy.
Read it.

Makes you wish more Arabs like him would be heard.
