Bilkey is a retired shipping executive who has lived in Iran, Bahrain and other Muslim countries.
Curran is a former assistant U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan, who has served in other Muslim countries such as Yemen.
Bilkey, who said he was in Dubai during the Persian Gulf War of 1991, said that at that time "Americans were heroes. We were thought of as saviors,
but we’ve totally lost it. What happened?"

"I think the first recommendation I would make is to take away a serious irritant by telling the Israelis to remove all the West Bank settlements,"
"I feel our government and media are tiptoeing around the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians," he said.
"Our government is not addressing the problem in an vigorous way. If we don’t change our unqualified support of Israel, there is no way we can win
the war on terrorism," Bilkey said.Wolf
