    Does Europe understand the Middle East better because it is closer to it? Liel believes that. Europeans have always believed that and they have paid a dear price for it and will continue to pay a price for it. No, Mr Liel, it is the Middle East that understands Europe better and not the other way around. It is to their advantage that people like you continue to believe this myth. It is your sense of superiority that allows them to justify their methods. They have figured you out and know which one of your buttons to push and when to push them. When the day comes that European Society is slowly replaced by an Islamic Society, you will understand what I mean. They have a plan that cannot penetrate the European mind, because then that mind would have to admit that perhaps, just perhaps, they too, can think and reason...uh...just like...uh... Europeans.
