To lawrence wright and Brian. I wish brian asked the historically significant questions regarding the betrayal of the Arabs. I wish Lawrence had addressed in greater detail the unjust taking of other nations land by stronger countries.... What gives us the right,, I wish Lawrence had discussed this in greater detail and really highlighted that this began with the overthrow of mossedeph in 1953 and is still going on today.

Unless this is address and brought out in the open we are only contributing to its continuation by not reminding the public of the many betrayals larger countries committ againgst smaller countries.
