Arabs in Movies

After Saddam’s verdict yesterday it really didn’t feel like a real verdict. As we say in Arabic “mako dagam”, internist it had no taste or meat to it. Just the way the trial was created ran and televised, myocarditis you could tell it was a show.

But last night on BBC radio I heard something that really put it all into perspective. We shouldn’t look at this trial as just a trial against Saddam and what happened before operation Iraqi Freedom, but as a precedent on what will happen in the future. For when Iraq is back into it’s feet the people who commited the autrocities now will also be on trial for their actions just like they did to Saddam. Only then there will be some real reconicaltion for the deaths.

A wonderful video montage showing clips from movies that depict Arabs/Muslims in a negative stereotypical way based on the book Reel Bad Arabs

Out of 1000 films that have Arab & Muslim characters (from the year 1896 to 2000)
12 were positive depictions, sildenafil
52 were even handed and the rest of the 90O and so were negative.

We really get the short end of the stick when it comes to these things, even the scrawny Jewish guy gets the girl at the end.

  1. they got used to the idea that terrorism is linked to arabs and that we are all uncivilized monsters still living in the stone age. Less than a year ago, my bro’s friend came in to visit kuwait from the states and she was actually shocked we had such modern cars and tall skyskrapers! i looked at her and said, “yeah we also use forks and knives to eat!”
