Thank you for the email today, it was interesting. I'm not upset about any articles you care to send me. I think it's important to hear many different views and opinions other than my own. That's how we learn and grow as people. I am curious however, as to your position on my country and it's policies, at home and abroad. I understand the political views and opinions from the editorials you send, but not your own Views and opinions. How do you see America and it's people? I know that there are many in your region that consider us the big Satan of the world. I know that this viewpoint is some times taught in schools and mosques as well. It is not unusual to see demonstrators shouting "death to America" on news from your country. In your own opinion why is America so hated there? In my country, there isn't a lot of negativity about your country. Americans can differentiate between your governments views and it's people's views. If you would ask any American on the street how they felt about Iran, you would hear positive things. American's don't hate Iran nor it's people. I guess after reading the various articles you sent, it's made me curious of your feelings on the subject. I respect you a lot, and you are my friend. That's why it makes me somewhat saddened to think perhaps you might feel this way yourself. I hope not. I appreciate our differences, and your personal opinions, and I enjoy debating and sharing ideas with you. However, since we're friends your opinion's and ideas matter to me more. I wouldn't care about what someone else would think. If I'm being too sensitive I apologize. I guess I'm not as political minded as others. People always meant more to me than ideas and politics. We're all the same inside. Our blood is all the same color, red. It's difficult discussing things with someone, when you can't look into their eyes, and tell if they understand what you're trying to convey to them. I want you to feel that you can share anything with me, but I don't want to be the spokesman for my country's policies. I consider myself a person first, that happens to be an American citizen. Please understand my friend. I guess I may have been thinking too much about this. It's been a bad day for me today. I hope I haven't offended you in any way. Take care my brother.
