Algerian author speaks stark truths about the state of the Arab world

This man says it all. From reveling in past achievements like "inventing the zero" to childish delusions like the Egyptian "victory in 1973," this brave man deconstructs all the lies and fairy-tales Arabs tell themselves to excuse their sorry condition in the modern world.

Algerian author Anwar Malek lets off some steam to discuss the current plights facing the Arab World today. He deems that the Arabs today have lost their worth, their humanity, their culture, and are afflicted with false bravado and backwardness.
