We need to overcome the urge that we have acquired: the urge to apologize for the acts of extremists who obviously do not represent the opinion of the nation, or even that of the populace as michelle suggests. Moreover, we must not react offended, try to put any facts into prospective or, even worse, rationalize the acts. escpecially when the poster (michelle) is so obviously clueless... What we need to do is not give a crap about what some blockhead did last week and stop worrying whether this is gonna hurt germanys reputation. This attitude, being somewhat similar to self-confidence would be really beneficial for germany.
