I feel like I have something in common with the Pakistanis. Someone tell Faruq.
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- With President Barack Obama's first term characterized by strained relations between Pakistan and the U.S., more than nine in 10 Pakistanis (92%) disapprove of U.S. leadership and 4% approve, the lowest approval rating Pakistanis have ever given.
That's not all I agree with the Pakistanis about. 55% of the Pakistanis believe greater interaction between Muslim and Western societies is more of a threat than benefit. Only 13% see it as more of a benefit. Hey, obviously we have incompatible value systems. They see it. I see it. So we can stay in the West and they can stay in Muslim lands and we can interact only at a distance, say in internet discussion forums. Think of the money we'd save on both foreign military adventures and also on national security agencies following around potentially dangerous immigrants.
Good fences make for good neighbors.
