circumcised i they choose to be circumcised (because they do notwant to be dierent rom others), or like saying the poor peopleshould be poor i they choose to be poor (because o their lazinessor ignorance).
I read that during the Gaza massacre the Palestinians choose to be
killed (or they kill their children) so that they may appear as victimsand gain sympathy rom the world. I was looking at the televisionscreen, observing how Obama talks with his hands, eyes and lips.His lips and hands look less cruel than G.W.’s. His colour is more
attractive, not black, not white, not yellow, a mixture o human

One o the chosen Egyptian men screamed in the hall while
Obama was giving his speech: ‘I love you

he want to distance himself as a person from himself as the American
president? Did he want to expose or hide his double personality?
But he is sophisticated and understands what is called in psychology
