Charles Johnson: "If your country lies in ruins, that's your fault cos you're Arab"

The latest in his series of racism cloaked as cultural critique pieces, Charles gives a nod ( to Ralph Peters, who delivers such choices bits of wisdom as:

"The oft-cited examples of the Arab world’s problems, from a lack of interest in secular education and a poor work ethic to staggering corruption and the oppression of women, are symptoms, not root causes, of Arab failure. Past a certain analytical point, we come up against the wall of our own taboos - we cannot admit that the psychological premises of an entire civilization might be dysfunctional."
