All you need to understand the Middle East lingo from Dr Yasser Dasmabebi

A very useful article billed as a Guide to the Perplexed – is on Front Page Magazine here

You’ll find it a lot easier to read this that than the original Guide.

A couple I particularly liked were:

Refugee: Someone who has refused to take refuge, or who has not been allowed to take refuge.

Arab Humiliation: The pervasive feeling on the Arab street generated by their failure to annihilate Israel and the Jews in several wars. Many opinion-makers, Middle East experts and op-ed writers argue that Arab humiliation is at the root of the Middle East conflict; i.e., “If only the Jews would let themselves be destroyed, the Arab street would feel better about themselves, and then there would be peace.”
