Lawrence of arabia starring Mr. Peter O'Toole

Early in the movie, Peter O'Toole's character in the movie (as Lawrence 
of Arabia) is accused of being a "traitor" who is too much wanting to be 
on side with the Arabs - even though he earlier in the movie described 
"the people of Arabia" as "a small people, a silly people - greedy barbarous
and cruel!" (he said do upon witnessing the execution of an Arab tribesman
who drank water from the wrong well - as it turns out. Oh well by the end of
the movie he decides "I do not wish any Arab friends at all!" - his experiment
in assimilating amongst them albeit as supreme leader - a dismal failure to his
in his own mind and to his own spirit ultimately. Lawrence would be
happy to know that water is now much cheaper - thanks to the abundance
of oil - meant to benefit all in the region of course - equally, why not
This movie gives mainly a poor display of the beginnings of civil societal ideas of the 
more modern genre around some parts of the Arabian desert locales and surrounding 
parts I gather. Hollywood never did do the Arabs much justice in this regards.

I have to protest in this regards, given my own experience with some of the greatest, 
nicest warmest and most civil and downright truly most caring folks I've met along the 
way have been from Lebanon and maybe one or two even from Palestine and elsewhere 
around the region too, certainly I say. We surely shouldn't lump all together despite different 
merits in this regard with respect of the issues raised in this movie and in everyday viewing.
Having misguided ideas which taint all could again result in needless and costly wars that
lack fundamental justice when the wrong folks are also targeted in what is included for such
acts of aggression it seems, against folks in the broader area I would suppose.
