When in doubt

It seems as though the de-rigour thing to do these days when your back is against the wall and you've run out of arguments is to accuse your accusers of being racists. This tactic seems to be a particular speciality of Islamic people although not exclusively. I see that the former PM of Qatar, that bastion of equal rights and opportunities is accusing the "West" of being racist for questioning the fairness of the World Cup voting process that saw this small Arab country with little football infrastructure and day-time temperatures of 50 degrees Centigrade winning the right to host the 2022 football competition. I've visited quite a few Arab countries in my time and generally the people are friendly and welcoming, but in my limited experience some can also be very racist toward non-Arabs too; people in glass houses etc..
