I LOVE Italians!  I especially love their coffee and animated men.

Yes, such a object of entertainment for "exceptional" Americans, a specimen under the microscope to laugh at, or ridicule, depending on the mood.   From the sounds of this thread, I'm not sure if we're talking about the evil doing Muslims and an evil doing Muslim/Arab country, actually.   Interchangeable, when it comes to condemnation of an entire people, it seems, whether for amusement or fear. 

Please, Italians are much more than entertainment for "exceptional" Americans.  They are a delightful culture and much appreciated for the multitude of contributions in many areas of the human race.  Lighten up!  Take a stroll and have some Italian coffee.

While a relaxed ROC standard is in effect on that forum, the tighter forum-wide ROC standard -- and all local guidelines for this forum -- apply to this discussion from this point forward.

...Washington State Senator Maria Cantwell has stated that Amanda Knox did not receive a fair trial in Perugia,  Italy, implying the Italian system is inherently deficient, and calling for the Department of State to intervene.    In fact, Knox  has stronger rights on appeal in Italy  than a defendant in the U.S... (more)

So those thinking she did not get a fair shake might want to read this...
