You are quit right here !
Not only the Palestinians and the Mexicians rejoiced.
Here in Belgium also a few days after the first shock the comments in news-
papers and elsewhere changed their tune.
Also the people in the street saw this coming and rejoiced, not in the
way the few Palestinians did, but anyway.
The most common factor for this fact was that the Americans needed a
lesson in respectfullness and in modesty. But somehow, Bush and his
administration don 't yet grasp it !
And that is something what most people I talked with see as the most
immediate danger for the future_ that the West will enforce its own view
upon the world, once again....
