The West should understand that while we have failed in some aspects yet we have a desire to stride forward and progress.
To do that we need peace and you cannot have peace without justice and giving the Palestinian people their rights.
You cannot have peace where the hopes and aspirations of people are trampled upon. You cannot have peace if the West completely ignores human rights issues and on the contrary strengthens totalitarian regimes for economic gains.
All these machinations have to stop immediately. Otherwise the West will pay for the scourge of terroristic acts that will sadly develop from these injustices, as those who have no recourse to legal process will resort to terror.
The West should treat us as equals. We want friends, not masters.
