  • You know beccimae - you bring up a good point actually. Regarding learning about other countries...well, maybe HE should learn about ours? Why are we always worried about stepping on toes and bending over backwards to please others all the time. If HE knew Diane Sawyer, an AMERICAN WOMAN, was interviewing him, why wouldn't he RESPECT OUR CULTURE and shake her hand???!!!??? It would have been the proper thing to do at that moment. He seems like a big 'ol chauvinistic, pompous jerk to me and people are just making excuses for him.

    That's the other thing - did she spend all those years in journalism and never pick up the slightest shred of international protocol? Start out your interview with an insult, excellent work!

  • You morons. It is disrespectful for a Muslim man to touch a woman who is not his wife or a member of the family. It is nice to know there are so many bigots out there still today. Look it up on the internet for Pete's sake. Your internet goes more places than Cafemom!

    So much hostility - seems to me the only moron involved here is Diane Sawyer.
