Old Jerusalem

Some people, although I might have great respect for them and their opinions, irritate me every once in a while... Just because they got a western education, or had access to a chance that leaped them into prominent positions in society, they start to refer to Bahrain as a backward society. Its in their lingo, to the extent that its not the matter of consideration anymore, but more like a normal flow of any conversation. Example: person A "how long did it take you to get to work today?" Person B " I was stuck in traffic.. thanks to the retarded people that cant go around a small accident. Such a backward society."

I'm gonna tell those folks a story a reverend once told me...
In old biblical times... there was a city in old jerusalem... at the entrance was a wise gate-man. Someone comes up to him and says "wise man, tell me, how is this city?" And the wiseman would say " well how did you find the city you were at ?" And he said " It was wonderful... men were like brothers, it was so safe we didnt have to lock our doors, and the people were friendly and nice." So the wiseman said " then you will find this city to be the same."

The next day someone else walks by and says " Oh wise man, how is this city?" And the wise man says "well how did you find the city you were at ?" and he said " the people were hateful, you cant trust anyone with a secret, and men were jelous of each other!" The wise man said " I'm afraid you're going to find this one to be the same."

Moral of the story: life is what you make of it.... what you see is sometimes what you want to see

Don’t get irritated.

Negative people create misery for themselves. Amazingly, they might b more backward than what they are criticizing !

Great post!

Rather than calling Bahrainis "backward", would it be more appropriate if I call them "intolerant and unwilling to learn" ?
