i am whining Enohead? didn`t i make it clear that Islam/the arab cluture does not promote the beheading of people, suicide bombings, etc. If i were to put Quran entries here, different people mis interpert them differently, so i put examples instead. And saying arabic is a race not a religion....that is like saying isralies are a race, not a religion. Practically ALL arabs are muslim, and the ones who are not are just living in saudi arabia for buisness purposes, and all muslims (unless you converted) had at one time family members in arabia.

i agree with mastercif :)
in these days we are very badly represented...

i talked to people that think this:

2-all muslems are terrorests(hmm who gave them that impretion? [cough] BUSH :P)
3-arabs live in tents with camels as there best friends!??!?!?(unsless my camel is equiped with a lcd screen and a keyboard i wouldnt be able to post here!)
4-arabs and muslems are boring...(trust me WERE NOT!)
5-arabs are uneducated...ouch the irony!(i currently study IB in a privet school. BTW i hate IBO!)
6-muslems love blood and racisem(islam as mastercif said means piece while a muslem is a person that is totaly submited to God)
7-arabs hate westerns espetialy americans?!??!(i have at least 10 western friends(not on msn lol) and my best teacher is american :)

Oh, and Muslims ARE killing other Muslims. Maybe when a negative aspect is brought to light about a religion, or a culture, you should want to address it, rather than whining about people being racist.
Or, maybe I should just take the easy way out like you. Preach tolerance of all things - good or bad. EVERYBODY STOP MAKING MENTION OF CATHOLIC PRIESTS RAPING LITTLE BOYS. Nobody should say that it`s wrong, because that would be ignorant and intolerant of somebody`s religion. After all, it`s only a few priests that did that. Right?

mastercif, maybe you should direct your anger towards the extremists who are giving Islam a bad name, rather than to people who simply point out that Arabs behead people. And, last I checked, Arabic is a race, not a religion.

(ran out of characters again in last post) out what Islam is about, and interestingly enough, ever since after 9/11 there has been a HUGE surge of people converting to Islam, now, i am not trying to say that Islam is better then Christanity, Judaism or anything, just pointing this out just to express that i don`t think that EVERYONE is thinking that Islam is bad.

ok i ran out of characters to express what i was trying to say. i have read the bible, torah, and Quran, and all do not promot the killing of innocent people, so everyone who said things like "a real arab show would need beheadings" stop being a racist f**k tard and actually LEARN about the religion itself, not follow actions by people who follow the religion. I go to a muslim community center freqently and my dad is the imam of a mosque, (the equvilant of a priest in a church) and we frequently discuss of how people like Osoma and radicals are giving a wrong message of what Islam is and we need to do something to get this message out of peoples mind. We have started by giving relif to places that really need it, right now my family is sending food, water, and tents to Islamabad, and did the same with the tsunami HOWEVER luckily, some people happen to to be so racist an interestingly enough, because people found out about these Islamic Extreamists, many have wanted to find ou

i agree with ten_10 i am so f***ing tired of people misunderstanding WHAT ISLAM IS ABOUT the word islam litterally means peace in arabic! For those who are saying "muslims are blowing up muslims, how do you explain that?" well, there happen to be some sick [email protected] who happen to follow Islam and kill people, there are examples of this in every religion. I see that everyone is attacking Islam for this, but remember, there are good and bad people in almost every deitey/religion for example

In Islam: obviously Al-queda and many other people blowing up people and beheading them

In Christanity: Adolf Hitler and his nazi followers Killed 6 milion Jews specifically because they were jewish, their main reason for doing so "because the jews killed christ"

so you can`t base your understanding of a religion based on actions by people who follow that religion. So stop being so f***ing and actually READ the holy books of these religions

BTW infact i have read the bible,

We have capital punishment here in the U.S., and a very high crime rate. So, you can`t show me a completely convincing causal effect.
I`m not saying I`m against capital punishment - I don`t know where the hell you got that idea.
I was just saying that there are beheadings in Arabic countries, and that pointing out the fact that there are beheadings is NOT racist. No more, no less.

i reached the max charecters in my last post...

29 executions out of 26 MILLION citizens is like a drop of water in the sea!
a chance of a guy getting exacuted is:
0.000111% which is almost non existant!

trust me those 29 criminals ARE EVIL AND PHYCOTIC if they were jailed in the US I BET THEY WOULD NEVER BE RELEASED!

"the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia beheaded more than fifty people" is a FACT not a critisism to saudi arabia!
YES THEY DO DECAPITATE CRIMINALS! i live right next to saudi arabia...
do you know there crime rates! DAMN THERE LOW!
Assaults: 4,705
0.178098 per 1,000 people [51st of 57]

Burglaries: 11
0.000416383 per 1,000 people [54th of 54]

Embezzlements: 479
0.0181316 per 1,000 people

no matter what you think of the capital punishment you can`t argue that is doen`t repent people from commeting crime.
THE ONLY PEOPLE THAT DON`T WANT THE CAPITAL PUNISHMENT ARE LOGICLY THE CRIMINALS THEMSELFS!
and dont start with the human rights thing here, i think it only applies to citizens

Okay, ten_10 - I`m glad we can settle down and have a normal discussion. I apologise for calling you a hypocrite.
Your statement "...I meant one of the very small percentage that actually believes that killing people is the right thing to do." is exactly the point I was trying to make about stereotypes. The post about sadistic beheadings was completely valid, in my opinion. Beheading has particular prominence in Saudi Arabia. In 2003 alone, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia beheaded more than fifty people. Pointing this fact out isn`t racism, no matter how distasteful you find to the idea of racism to be. I agree that people shouldn`t be racist. On the other hand, people also should not have a knee-jerk reaction to the pointing out of negative aspects of a culture and cry racism at every turn.

I don`t want to keep defending myself. By "sick fcuks" I meant one of the very small percentage that actually believes that killing people is the right thing to do. And I apologise for calling you immature. I was in a bad mood and being attacked wasn`t what I needed, okay? I hate being called immature, whether through implication or not. I can`t believe I`m having an argument with an old man (By the way, that`s a joke, in case you can`t recognise them)

Really? What have I said to lead you to believe that there are 10 year olds with more social and emotional intelligence than me?
I had someone agree with my point that stereotypes are based (at least partly) in truth. That`s the only point I made.
Yet you made an emotionally immature response to somebody`s reference to sadistic beheadings.
Then you yourself referred to "sick fcuks" that cut off the head of your character in a play.
Are you implying that all Arabs are "sick fcuks"?
Grow up, you hypocrite.

I know that. Of course I watch the news. Hey, I even read newspapers. IN fact, I`m in a fcuking play about terrorism. I play an american soldier who gets her head cut off by one of the sick fcuks. I was getting mad about the stereotypes people were bringing up. Someone (can`t remember who) implied that all arabs blow themselves up, or want to. Of course it`s not true. But saying stuff like "A fully Arab version would require sadistic beheadings" just inspires people to have racial intolerance, doesn`t it? I just hate how people are so small minded about these things.

And enohead, to you I say grow up. Not in age. In maturity of mind. There are 10 year olds with more social and emotional intelligence than you. Probably even more academic knowledge.

ten_10, do you watch the news?! This has nothing at to do with racism, you idiot! It has everything to do with people that blow themselves up to make a political or religious point. They don`t discriminate, either. There are Muslims blowing up Muslims! If anyone can explain that to me, I would certainly appreciate it!

liam53, the family guy picture makes up for your horrible typing, but stop.
anyway, they shouldnt change it, exept for the language. if they dont want an amercan version, make you own not change ours.
about the racism, enohead has a point. (wow id never think i would say that!) racism is always based on a little truth, and we know that not veryone is the stereotype.

my favorate is when homer proves there is no god.
in islam if u do any thing that homer does its forbiden, but if u laugh at him its ok!

and the arabic version is cernsored cuz they don`t want the children to be influnced by it...
although i have watched it since the OLD series, the one were bart(badr LOL) fights the bully.

I always find it humorous to see someone who`s profile lists them as 18-29 years old telling others to "grow up".
Racist stereotypes exist because they are based on truth. Everyone who has half a brain knows that not 100% percent of the race in question is like what the stereotype represents.

manorrd,

for the simpsons to take on Arabic lifestyle, those aspects would have to be addressed. Unfortunately, you can`t just come out and say it everywhere.

ten_10, showing those things on an Arabic version isn`t being racist. It`s taking things that happen in the society and putting them in a humorous light. Just like Grandpa Simpson`s treatment in the show is a take on how America deals with the elderly in some cases. Just like Bart`s punishment for the international prank call to Australia where the punishment is getting the "Boot."

The news clip even explains how various religions are targeted. Krusty is Jewish and in the entertainment industry?!? Matt Groening you RACIST!!!

Well...The Simpsons shines light on the uglier side of American life by using humour.

There are also ugly sides to Arab life that won`t go away just because facing it takes away one`s warm and fuzzy view of the world.

Sadistic beheadings and death-cult suicide bombers are ugly aspects of Arab living. I would love to see a Simpsons type show shedding light on the uglier side in a made for Saudi tv show. Maybe it would get the message across.

why do they have to change The Simpsons. Why not just go ahead and make a completely new show based on The Simpsons?

Instead of re-tuning it, perhaps they could`ve had the writers and animators actually make a fully Arab version of the Simpsons, tuning it perfectly for them whilst trying to match storylines etc.

I find it interesting that 60% of the Arab world is 20 years old or younger. Do you think that`s perhaps that they keep blowing themselves up?!
