The camel is one of the most cherished and valued animals on earth

“People who have the personality to turn the biggest American tragedy into a racist free-for-all don’t really care to distinguish between countries and prefer to imagine the Middle East as one confusing and dangerous entity. A camel-riding entity. And camels are a favorite way to put down the perceived enemy as someone who is backward or primitive. They spit out the word ‘camel’ in such contempt, as if this was supposed to be an insult of some sort.”
