    Whatever your thoughts are based on, indeed there seems to be a fundamental difference between the orient and German culture. Sometimes in the middle east words just seem to be sound waves, while we here in Germany have some value called "consistency" which prescribes us to stand by our words. In me this value is still strong: Occasionally I am very ashamed of things I said years or months ago, because I couldn't stand by them or realized that I was wrong. I sometimes even expect other people to act in a way that's "consistent" with their words. Some Germans would kill or die for the strange maxims they have in their own minds rather than give them up: We're anakastic personalities. While we Germans have to learn not to take ourselves that seriously, I wish some Arabs would take themselves a bit more seriously, make an intellectual effort and thus improve their image as a future RELIABLE partner, instead of always letting off steam against some predetermined culprit, Israel or the USA.
