tribute to Ajami:

I read someone's tribute to Fouad Ajami.  He sounded in tears in his words.  If only I don't remember what he used to tell me about him.  Don't you hate those who say one thing in private and another in public? In Arabic we have a word called Muru'ah (المروءة) which does not translate into other languages: it means that someone's ultimate test is to say and do in private what he is not embarrassed from doing or saying in public.
