Swing & a miss
Saying that the only reason that Arabs are backwards is because of Whitey denies them the agency and responsibility that they both need and deserve.
Perhaps some needed reform is needed.
Egypt was on its way to that after the Arab Spring, when they
elected Mohammad Morsi. He opened the borders to Palestine and began sending in aid to them. He was about to make a peace deal with Iran, too, which would end an longstanding hatred between Persians and Arabs.
Suddenly, Morsi's head of the army, Sisi, did a full military coup using foreign money and weaponry. Closed the Palestine border. Quelled any protests, a la August 2013 Rabaa massacre. New 'Elections' were held, and guess what? Mr. Sis, the military general, won with flying colors. Now Egypt is back to square one. Dictatorship.
Trump's first week in office included a phonecall to Sisi saying he'll support Sisi's fight against 'terrorism' (a.k.a any form of opposition to the military dictatorship.)
Tell me again how the Arabs are to blame when a minority of criminals are used to suppress them?
Arabs are not perfect. They have their problems which they're trying to fix, but blaming it all on their religion or culture seems irresponsible.
If the west was involved in the coup, I obviously don't support that. But I don't disagree with Trump trying to build bridges with Egypt. We can't afford to intervene or otherwise pressure in Egypt right now, and we need allies on the ground. At this point, stability in the region is far more important both locally and globally than installing democracies, a process which has been proven to create failed states like Libya and Afghanistan whenever we try it with current methods.
Your main point seems to be that Arabs are oppressed by the west "to this day". Otherwise, everything else here falls apart or becomes irrelevant. Do you not see how stripping an entire region of agency or responsibility for their actions and convincing them that it's so predominantly a specific group of people's fault that they're suffering in the third world is dangerous?
