I wish Afghans and Iraqis would be able to say the same..
Civilised cultures??? R u kidding??


Karma , my dear young innocent child. In the West we do not kill our women folk if they became the victims of rape , or if they fancied a bit because we do not consider the woman's' genital area to have anything whatsoever to do with honor.What we consider honorable behaviour is tolerance , compassion , forgiveness, love of life and respect of the sanctity of life , caring for the sick and the old and looking after our animals. Unlike the Iraqis and Afghans that you mentioned we do not believe that massacring innocents gives us an automatic entry to heavens. These two nations that you mentioned are still living in the 4th century , and we have reached the 21st in case you haven't noticed.


Thank u so much Miltiades, U made my day calling me young :wink:
In the West you do not kill your women but only in the East..I agree with u..
As for honor, respect, forgiveness, love, tolerance; all the nations of the world deserve them , not only imperialists..
If they want to live in 4th century , it is their choice u shld TOLERATE IT as a ''CIVILIZED WESTERN'' :)

Well Sube, I see the topic digressed from what you wanted to say. But I think you overreacted to the situation and left your study and career for an otherwise passable incident. If it grows overboard, I can think of it, but generally it happens everywhere. Just look at Bangladesh, don't you think, some people there treat other guys as being inferior. I say that because being an Indian, I see that happening many times back home, though things are changing rapidly in India.
If someone passes a comment like that to me, which a few people have, I just give a smile and walk off. Probably they do it out of desperation that I am more cultured, educated and well-to-do than they are. And I don't want to become a racist by replying in kind to them.
I have met some amazing Cypriots and they are just great to have with u. Aren't the guys and gals on this forum lovely who care about all and talk sense?

Well said...is not about nations and countries is all about individuals behavior to others people. You can find people that will treat you bad or they even racist to any foreigners to every country. I was talking the other day with my flat mate...and he was telling me that British (most of them at least) dont want to have relationships with foreigners because they are bored to speak slow or give time to understand the others...because most of the international student speak slowly and ask from British to repeat what they said often...because they didnt understand. So they avoid a bit of the internationals...so they are racist? No...is normal...and I know lots of couples here that they are mixed...British and International...and friend groups mixed from local students and international...so is all about individuals.

but it is people like who treated sube bad enough to start this thread, that end up creating stereotypes. i was going to visit cyprus, but decided against it because of some of the things said on this forum.
i am a new yorker, and i know we have a not-so-good stereotype. shoot, i am american, and look at how the majority of the members here think of us.....

Come on GG...Kikapu proved that what is said in this forum can be a lie or in real life people will act differently. He is TC and we "supposed to treat him bad"...but he was accepted by everyone and treat with respect etc...so the whole world is against America for the war but that doesnt mean that we treat bad or the whole world will treat you bad because you are American. If you feel and think that way then you will end travelling in your own country and not abroad!

that is kikapu's story, and he can stick with it. i know of another forum member who visited cyprus recently--his country of birth, and was not treated so well because he resides in the USA.
lena, sometimes you are so young and so niave....
don;t worry, i still like you. :-)
