    Khalid: Title: ?Dictatorship always brings fundamentalism? What was first, the egg or the hen? And why do those fundamentalists attack other countries instead of attacking the tyranies which are oppressing them? And besides there have been many dictatorships and the people didn?t become fundamentalists. For instance, the countries under the Soviet Union control. The people opposed tyrany but didn?t attack other people or the neighboring countries. Let?s take Poland, Solidarity Union called strikes and protests against the regime but didn?t commit terrorist attacks or sent people to explode in Germany or in Russia. ?the American-supported Arab dictatorships are the main generator and breeder and incubator of fundamentalism. ? It is wrong to cling to these dictatorial regimes in the hope that they will shield the west from fundamentalist forces. The opposite is true. ? And what about the Neverlanders? terrorism? Is the blame on the US as well? So the blame is always on others. It doesn?t matter that Saudi Arabia funds terrorism. They are not responsible for it, no, sir. Who said that? It?s OK for you,Khalid to express your opposition to the Saudi dictatorship. So you like democracy. Are you doing something against that dictatorship? Or are you doing something against the PA administered territories dictatorship? Khalid: ?Look, the 9/11 terrorists came from Saudi Arabia, not Palestine.? Yes , the 9/11 terrorists, who attacked theUS, were not ?Palestinians? and they were very bad. Does it mean that the Hamas, Jihad, Martyrs Brigade, etc. are good?

Israel’s condemnation of Pride attack is hollow

Behind the pinkwashing, it turns out homophobia in its worst forms exists within the government.
