An Example of Arab Idiocy

When We were taking an Arabic class, Our instructor was a Palestinian. He was not a good instructor and he was quite the run-of-the-mill anti-American, anti-Israeli, anti-Jewish, paranoid, conspiracy-theorizing, arrogant moonbat. What made matters worse was that he would routinely launch into emotional and strident anti-American tirades while knowing full well that one of his students is in the military and was sent back from Iraq after being injured.

One day, the instructor went on and on about how Arabs are enraged at how Americans are violating their cultural sensitivities by barging into homes, dealing with women, and otherwise not kow-towing to their misogynistic customs. He admitted that it would be difficult to honor Arab culture while attempting to secure stability in Iraq, but he nevertheless said it was imperative that American soldiers learn Arab culture and what they should and should not do.

Now, with all due respect, We believe that soldiers do not have the time to ascertain whether the women of a household are properly veiled and/or have a male relative with whom the soldiers can deal while the soldiers are hunting for terrorists hiding in people's homes. Especially, may We add, when said terrorists have taken to hiding under veils.

The instructor claimed that Arabs have severely condemn this American injustice and barbarism, that these policies only entrench Arab hatred for America, and that some say they prefer Saddam's regime to American violation of Arab culture. "This never happened in Saddam's days!" he says Arab women wailed. Yes, evidently it seems that some Arabs believe that gassing hundreds of thousands of people is far better than talking to a woman without a male relative present.

Ludicrous.
