Sometimes the average person will not notice nuances of language or behaviour, they just get carried away with the subject matter instead of watching the 'detail' of how it is dealt with. Not putting you down mate or anything, just the way it is.
I will repeat that my opinions on Kilroy are what I have actually seen of him and reading what he has written..
Believe me, his prejudices are not confined to Arabs, in fact they seem to know no bounds. He doesn't even like a lot of his own countrymen!
well, he defended black people

If there is one thing that intensely annoys me is people who think they know the minds of others :mad:
Bear in mind Vienna that not all people have the same like-style as your own. Some people work shifts, or nights or are chronically ill so are subjected to the narrow-mindedness of the ilk of Kilroy.
How can you judge that my opinion is an absurd tirade - very condescending of you, and arrogant - in fact, much like your mentor, Kilroy!
My opinion of him is absolutely personal, it does not depend on 'sensationalist British public' nor 'whims'. I am for the underdog - regardless of their colour, creed or political persuasion. He is not - as demonstrated by the points I have raised earlier.
An example of the ugly character traits he has displayed:-
Initially, his reaction to the furore surrounding his "tirade" was one of submissive apology - once he saw he had some support from his 'disciples' he goes on the attack. How genuine was his initial remorse then? Not genuine at all, methinks.
hehe, what is the matter with everyone. so touchy....

a part error that he made and apologised for and that does nothing other than damage his credibility. not, however, something that demands his suspension and a police investigation.

I have found that when conversing with JSM, clarification is constantly needed in order for the conversation to even move at a snail of a pace. I bid you to scan pages back and see how this discussion has developed....

Arab prose, prose fiction and art is still amongst the most beautiful in the world.

If it wasn't for their recent history of imperial exploitation I'm sure the Arab World would be providing the world with even more, as they have done through all points in History.

au contraire, JSM has to continually restate the argument while reminding people the factual grounds of the debate. no wonder its going slowly, wading through this barrage of nonsense takes ages..i feel for the poor lad.
