“I don’t need to apologize for being a proud westerner”

And when I say Westerner, I mean someone who believes in the values that Western people believe in that a lot of the Muslim world does not. Like separation of church and state. Like equality of the sexes. Like respect of minorities, free elections, free speech, freedom to gather. These things aren’t just different from cultures that don’t them. It’s better. I would like to keep those values here.
