The last thing I should care about--and anybody in the Arab world should care about--are the Western standards and criteria and conditions regarding upheavals in the Arab world . . .

The rightist fans of Edmond Burks have convinced generations of Westerners that the French Revolution was a bloody affair when a couple of thousands of French people were killed . . . Arab revolutionaries should press ahead with little attention--if any--to what the White Man in Western capitals is saying. I really think that mercy at this time in Egypt or Tunisia or Libya may be the factor that could undermine the goals of revolution . . .I am reminded of a comment once made by music reviewer about a Motown record with gloopy string-arrangements: "bad taste in White people." AA, as far as I can tell, has never written a single word that does not advance the agenda of certain (leftist) white men in the West. He just has "bad taste in White people." I am making a theoretical point here--I don't care what happens to Mubarak and especially Gaddafi.
