Ibn Alrafidain

"it took an American soldier more than 48 hours & more than 30 Iraqi casualties to understand that his sign for the Iraqi car drivers to stop means a salutation according to the Iraqi tradition."
Ibn Alrafidain

I found this paragraph fascinating and posted it just so that this word would get out. Hopefully there is a campaign somewhere to help teach these little culture shock issues to both sides as to avoid making the bad, worse.
