That reminds of "The Merry Minuet"
"The whole world is festering with unhappy souls,
The French hate the Germans, the Germans hate the Poles
Italians hate Yugoslavs, South Africans hate the Dutch,
And I don't like anybody very much!!! "
Written in the 50's, by Shel Silverstein I believe, and just as topical today.

Another verse goes,
"There's Hurricanes in Florida, there's strife in Iran,
What nature doesn't do to us,
Will be done by our fellow man.." LewBob
