A «thank you» from the heart to the conscionable, courageous and honorable positions your paper is taking. Another «thank you» to the great Greek people who, by their opposition to the war on Iraq, have shown us all that they remain one of the shining repositories of our collective memory. You have lived up to your history and to the aspirations of millions of citizens all over the globe. Arabs are grateful and moved by the show of solidarity and humanity Greeks have displayed in this moment of truth. SALWA GHALY, United Arab Emirates.
