The hypocrisy of the West has never been more blatant than during the recent developments in Tunisia and Egypt. Our media constantly show us the Middle East and Africa as backwards areas in the world. They compare Arabs and Africans with the technological occidental democracies, attributing the differences in standard of living to the superiority of our enlightened societies. Mr Levy lifts the veil of hypocrisy by showing how it is in the West's interest to prevent these parts of the world from accessing to the same rights as us and to maintain them under both the boot of corrupted dictatorships and under the boot of our indirect form of Western colonialism. Despicable!
