Learning from the Weaknesses of Others
I tell my kids to try to learn from experience. I also tell them it's usually cheaper to learn from someone else's experience than from your own. In this piece, Tarek Heggy lists some weaknesses of the Arab Mind. Being neither an Arab nor the son of an Arab, I think the weaknesses he lists are worth examining ourselves for. When you pray for the Arabs to be delivered from these weaknesses (surely it would be good for the world for Arabs to be a healthy, strong set of cultures?), you can then pray for your own deliverance.
