Do the following comments prove my point that I made some days ago; Daniel Boyd is a distraction only plus since he is a Muslim, he knows that every Muslim is obliged islamically to protect his brother Muslim, so there is always a chance of his defending other Muslims that are persecuted in Israel and elsewhere in the world but does that sound unnatural? The proper way of preventing the so called terrorism is for each country to confine itself within its boundries, depend on its own resources, respect other countries' sovereignty and everything will be hunky dory.

Pankaj Mishra explores the dark side of democracy:
Shallowness and ignorance have been our lot in the mass consumer societies we inhabit, where we were too distracted to act politically, apart from periodically deputing political elites to take life-and-death decisions on our behalf. We were shielded from many of the deleterious consequences, which worked themselves out on obscure people in remote lands. The free world’s economic implosion is bringing home the intolerable cost of this collective deference to apparently efficient elites and anonymous, overcomplex institutions.
