But he's likely a sissy after all. He looks fairly fit for a fellow his age, and he's cocky enough. But I fear that if it comes to it, he'd probably run away because he's born to cry. It's his nature to fight, but I fear that's been drummed out of him over the course of his years. He's got what it takes to fight, but I think he'll never let himself get to that point, always strutting and bragging, and then backing away when it gets to the flash-point. Too bad, 'cause some guys should be on the field where they belong.
I've seen it many times, that guys Muslim will shout like monkeys and rage like dogs on a chain-- and that's about it. They either act as a mob, no individual action to speak of; or they act individually only by sneaking, afraid to act openly as individuals for fear of offending the Muslim collective. Not so of Iranians, often enough. I've known some first-rate boxers from Iran. They'll stand man-to-man and fight. But I've only encountered one Palestinian who ever did that. Too bad. Mostly they just strut and make noises: "The Jews need another Holocaust." Uh huh.
