When a middle eastern gentleman says they are smart, yeah, but don't forget you saved and preserved the world's great sciences when a thousand years old disaster struck called 'the dark ages', when religion was considerd the way out. All the great inovations, scientific and medical discoveries and advances of the ancient civilizations (eg. the undeniable imense Greeks' contributions - though now some of it is being used for shady purposes) were saved because of you. The world owes it to you. I found it to be touchy when the man said such a good thing ... when I asked him tell me one good thing about them.
