Things Never Really Change

Andrew G. Bostom, in an extremely interesting article at The American Thinker, quotes noted archaeologist, explorer, and former British intelligence officer, Gertrude Bell (1868-1926), "who traveled extensively in the Middle East":

We are now in the middle of a full-blown Jihad, that is to say we have against us the fiercest prejudices of a people in a primeval state of civilization.

Gertrude Bell, Baghdad, Iraq, September 5, 1920

Really goes to show that no matter how much things seem to change, the more things remain the same.
