Samir Kuntar: Cruelty and Silence

Another excellent article by Ben Cohen of Z word.

...Makiya asks a question which many people would have been asking themselves yesterday; is there “an Arab uniqueness, or a ‘national’ Arab pathology where violence and cruelty are concerned?” Doubtless there are those who will answer in the affirmative for all the wrong - essentially racist - reasons.
Doubtless the orgy of death cult unfolding for the last few days could bring many to this sad conclusion.

We shouldn't give up, though.
