culture in the mideast and in the west
In the Mideast, Days of Tumult

Re “Seizing a Moment, Al Jazeera Galvanizes Arab Frustration” (front page, Jan. 28):

Reading how even “Western-aligned political factions” in the Arab world protest unfavorable television coverage by attacking and burning the channel’s offices and vans, I am reminded that our nonviolent ways of resolving political disagreements are not a given but a great — and fragile — cultural achievement.

I hope those who take pride in our culture remember that before calling for “Second Amendment remedies” and the like.
