This is very insulting to all the people of MENA and non westerns in general. I my self have partipate in protest in my country and saw other people died, when westerns tell us that we don't exist, and we did it because we were coopted and not because we suffer oppression, poverty, etc. and they refuse to listen our voices is total bigotry. And I think that this need to be addressed here.
