Pride means death is better than humiliation

The Arab armies suffered a humiliating defeat at the hand of Israel in 1967. After the start of the 1973 war against Israel, one Arab journalist was quoted as remarking: ” It doesn’t matter if the Israelis eventually counterattack and drive us back. What matters is that the world now no longer will laugh at us.

The World Will No Longer Laugh,” Time (22 October 1973) from James Dobson
