I found this post, entitled What Every American Should Know About the Middle East, rather educational today. It’s a quick explaination / comparison of such things as Arabs, Muslims, Islam, Iranians, Persians, Shia, and Sunni. I can’t say I learned anything, per se, but it’s a nice single location to find such information. As a bit of a tangent, I think the word American in the title is unnecessary. It should be replaced with Everyone. With the way the world is right now, I would think everyone should know these things – in particular governmental figures.
