Life in Pakistan and Saudi
Hehehe... Yeah, that makes perfect sense! And the kid was right; Saddam did win the Gulf War!
[...] After we finished, I was walking back with one kid who out of the blue asked me a question. “Who do you think is going to win the war?”
“The US,” I said.
“Why do you think that?” he asked.
“Since the US is more powerful than Iraq and has sent such a large force across 8 time zones.”
“No, Saddam Hussein is going to win!” he shot back.
I didn’t like that answer and asked him to explain his choice. He gave an answer that I knew was not right but my nine year old mind couldn’t compute as to why.
“Because he is a Muslim,” he replied.
One day, I overheard a conversation between my aunt and family. She had come back from a mosque. She told us about a foreign lady who came to teach birth control to women near the mosque. She said that the Westerners were afraid of Muslims. This talk of birth control was a scheme by the Westerners to keep the number of Muslims low in the world. I knew that this statement wasn’t right but kept my mouth shut. By the way, this aunt had seven children. I am sure that Western lady must have been petrified by her.
Yep, that makes sense too! It's all part of the master Imperialist Zionist Western evil plan!
