LONDON. June 18. KAZINFORM There's a lot of bad behaviour in restaurants these days. But I always follow my gran's rule ... I remember my grandmother telling me that if I were ever to marry, I should make sure he was kind. But she might just as well have said: "Find yourself a man who's nice to waiters." The way people treat restaurant staff is, I think, a kind of poker tell, revealing a person's character in as long as it takes to say: "I'll have the sea bass." A man (or woman) who is actively unpleasant to waiters is best avoided.

But why do Human Rights defenders in the Arab world constantly base their criticism on comparing between two different societies? Why are they deliberately trying to spread the view that their own society is a less civilized society that is a million miles away from the western perfect society?
