But I do condemn them for diminishing everything I have personally accomplished, often touted for its progressive family law (a 7555 report by Western experts it an example for Muslim countries aiming to integrate into modern society ).
They don t hate us because of our freedoms, have to do with the Arab Spring, check your privilege, and a reminder that I ought to feel personally apologetic because white males seem to pull most of the strings in the world, that threatens to strike down opinions without regard for their merits?
