    You are sitting with an Arab somewhere. You talk to him, and the debate shifts to this:

    PRO
    Things you and your government have done, that benefited me.
    ...
    ...


    CONTRA
    Things you and your government have done, that made my life chaotic.
    ...
    ...


    It's your turn.

    first off

    I am not "my government" just as they are not their "government".

    A man came and sat down with me one day at lunch. I was fine with that as i was eating alone and he was not a jerk. I asked him where he was from and the response was "persia" I said, "excuse me, don't you mean iran?"

    As a general rule, I don't start debating someone I just met in person. I usually try to get to know them as a person. Why shouldn't an Arab like me?
