So this Arab gets into a taxi. . .

(From the e-mail stack)

SO, this Arab gets into a taxi.

Once he is seated he asks the cab driver to turn off the radio "because he must not hear music as decreed by his religion and, in the time of the prophet, there was no music, especially Western music which is music of the infidel's and certainly no radio."

So the cab driver politely switches off the radio, stops the cab and opens the back door.

The Arab asks him: “Watt are you doing man?”

The cabby answers: “In the time of the prophet there were no taxis. So get the hell out and wait for a camel.”

Translation: If you don't like the way we do things here, get the hell out and go back home. Nobody made you come here, and for sure, nobody is making you stay.

I take issue with this. This is absurd generalization and it is typical of Americans. This is why the world dislikes you. Not only would this never happen, it makes you all look like a bunch of inbred racists. America was founded on religious tolerance, if you are a "patriot", act like one.

I'm Canadian and caucasian so leave your racism out of this.

I'm an American-Muslim and i totally agree with you, but you got one thing wrong, Music isn't forbidden in Islam many Muslims actually listen and make music, Jermaine Jackson is a famous Muslim musician.

Another thing is that Arabs only make up 12% of the Muslim population world wide and there are 1.5 billion Muslims in the world.

Also, 60% of Arab-Americans are Christians i.e Steve Jobs, Ralph Nader, and George J.Mitchell.
