    There is something disingenuous about "wise" people...

    I do not speak Arabic. But I do think we English speakers, especially Americans, have a negative reaction to the term "wise" that people in other languages don't have due to their histories. Where we may think "paternalistic!" someone else might think something else. Could it be lost in translation?

    Just a thought. That's why I'd like to hear from some Egyptians...
