Just have to meet the right one I suppose. All the Asian societies I have visited exhibited what we would call xenophobia, but its more like they think their particular race/society is superior to everyone else. They just dont tell little white lies like westerners so they can seem rather strong when they convey ideas and opinions. I talked to my wife about the Israel root theory and she did not believe it, I also told her that Japanese people used to think they would never lose any war also... We all know that civilization for all practical purposes did in fact originate in the current Middle East, people are probably more connected to each other then they would care to realize.
