The Words of a Lucid Arab Writer

Warning: this is a post-progressive blog post. (explanation)

Nadine Al-Baydar (A Saudi writer):
Did the Arabs lift a finger to help the people of Kosovo when they were suffering from Serbian persecution? They gathered a few donations, but it was America who saved Kosovo. The Arabs did nothing to aid the women of Afghanistan when they were forbidden an education, and when the Afghani people were robbed of the chance for a normal life. America had to come in and rid the region of the backward Taliban regime.
Arabic version here, English translation available here, and read the entire article. It's worth it.
