Arab Stereotypes in American Film

-


Al Jazeera anchor and senior correspondent Yosri Fouda — who interviewed al Qaeda leaders Ramzi bin al Shibh and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed — sent me this clip this morning on stereotypes of Arabs in American films.
It’s called “Reel Bad Arabs”, five minutes long and worth learning from.

    the image of the arabs in the american movies makes me both laugh and feel sorry . laugh as it`s very naive and not realistic. sorry as it neglects at all the scientific impact for example of the arabic civilization on the west civilization .the question now is why the bad side is the only one to be reflected ???

    Thats one sorry listing of movies in the video. If anything, Hollywood has pussyfooted around the threat of Islamic terrorism rather than inflate its significance. Having to reach back to comic portrayals of Libyans in Back to the Future is laughable. And Arabs should look at their own portrayals of infidels such as Christians and Jews in textbooks and media before complaining how a few movies amongst thousands portray them negatively. Mote Splinter, Glass houses and all that can be a b!tch.

    No surprise…and we are know where the majority of Arab bashing comes from …in Hollywood it’s the jewish cult…in general it’s the christian evangelical cult scardy cats. Bogga,bogga.
    During our famous color code alerts I keep hoping that we would get a real red one and the zionist and retards would run jump in their frezzers for protection and slam the door.

    A Pinkerton quote…..
    “The media “like brown people” and “black people,” but “what they really dislike, of course, is white people””
