The problem is Arab humiliation - the answer, re-dignification

I bet Thomas Friedman makes an awful lot of money, churning out this bunk:
"Tap into people's dignity and they will do anything for you."

Of Mahathir's call for Arab unity against the Jews, Friedman says only:
Most of that speech was a brutally frank look into the causes of the Muslim world's decline.
Though it was also laced with shameful anti-Jewish slurs, it was still revealing.

You can read it in full if you want, but only if you promise to write a letter to the editor:
