Dear writer, Africans are no strangers to Arab imperialism. They often use their religion as an instrument of thought control. This is quite similar to what they are doing to Indians, Bangladeshis, Phillipinas and other Asians in Dubai. They are cruel and do not believe in human rights. They still practice slavery in Saudi Arabia and other places in that region.

Obama is trying to squeeze the corporations for taxes they are hiding in those havens. He would have to do something really harsh, like waterboarding their mothers. (it is a joke, so do not flame me)

Rosemary Ekosso

Dear Facter,

Thank you for reading. I did not wish to issue a blanket condemnation of Arabs in my piece. What I meant was that exploitation is practised by all peoples and all races, given half a chance. It is not the preserve of any single human group, however one wishes to define such a group.

That said, I am not unaware of the poor human rights record in parts of the Middle East. But the record is not that good in Cameroon either, is it? There's a lot to be doen everywhere.


I get the point. I am the first to condemn the second class status of women in various Cameroonian groups and the exploitation of the former West Cameroon, but I am still looking for any history of Africans exploiting Arabs. It is almost a cultural imperative, this disdain and open season against those they call kfirs. I am also still waiting for one Arab voice to condemn what is happening in Darfur. I will not let them off easy because I want to seem fair and balanced, because it is a false fair and balanced to proclaim that the victim is a sinner too, and ought to be contrite too.


It is something of a relief that the United States is becoming aggravated with the tax havens and is leaning on the Swiss and the Caymans of this world. Perhaps the marines should land there and then waterboard some rogue bankers to show where they are hiding the money, LOL.
