An Arab's concept of the world has occasionally been described as a series of seven concentric circles with the individual Arab at the center. He is surrounded by the circle of his immediate family, and outside that circle is his extended family or tribe. Next are his immediate geographic region and then his country. Outside of his country ring is the rest of the Arab world; then the rest of the Muslim world, the "Dar al Islam," or the area of Muslim peace and stability. Outside this ring is the rest of the world viewed by the Arab as the "Dar al Harb"or WAR AREA!

Any questions?

Well put.

And that is why you can say, "I want peace", and a muslim can say the same words, but they mean totally different things.

Me? Looks like I'm a resident of dar al Harb.

Could it then be honestly said that they are self centered?

As long as we remember that we live outside thier circle, whether we are overseas or in our own backyard. Any group of people that considers everyone but themselves the enemy whether in peace or war can kiss my hairy ass. And I will afford them the same consideration.
