i completely hate it when arabs refer to us as 'miskeen.' it is true that many of them do this in the ME.
however racism is not a part of islam, and the prophet (saw) said, "he who does not concern himself with the affairs of other muslims is not a believer." this, sage, is why we are concerned about the middle east. after all, in the eyes of the muslim-hating, right wing christian conservatives, bengali or arab, black or white, a muslim equals a terrorist.
