The dismissal of Octavia Nasr proves this:
No matter how much you grovel and how much you insult Arabs and Muslims in the US, as Nasr has largely due to her ignorance of Middle East and Islamic affairs, it will never be enough. Unless you advocate the Likudnik positions as Fouad Ajami has, you will be suspect of you are of Arab origin.
Muhammad Husayn Fadlallah has no position whatsoever in Hizbullah, but US media still insist that he is Hizbullah’s leader.
In the US, you may only express sympathy and admiration for Jewish and Christian religious figures. Muslim religious figures are all a bunch of terrorists.
