There were literally hundreds of boys out in the streets playing with their toy guns and pellet guns during The Feast following Ramadan. The response I got wasn’t the usual “Cool pic” I normally get.
“A culture of war is being filtering down to the children,” was one of the responses I read. Do you agree? There is a presence of religious and political extremism that we here in the States don’t experience. In fact, a group of Muslim extremists ambushed and killed a number of Egyptian soldiers the week I was there.
Is this picture of the Arab boy accurate to that “culture of war” comment?
Is it different in comparison to our boys here in America playing “Cops & Robbers” and “Cowboys & Indians?” Ok that’s my age speaking. Is it any different when our American boys playing “Black Ops” in the streets?
I’d love to hear your feedback.
