I would say that when I saw the post, I was vaguely uneasy because it seemed to be too, how would you say, pointed toward the Arabic culture. Yes we have blonde jokes and nun jokes and Polish jokes but none of those groups have been linked to terrorist groups, to my knowledge. (Please don't tell me about underground Polish groups, that's not what I mean.) I had a very good friend from Lebanon several years ago, who was a good upstanding man and he could never get over why so many Americans treated him with suspicion for no apparent reason. He even helped me to interpret the Queen song, "Mustafa", which I thought was pretty amazing. Anyway, I side with Art here-I don't think the post should be removed since we all have opinions but I do think we should be above these stereotypes. Hope I expressed this the way I meant.
