Saudi racism revisited
November 30, 2013 Leave a comment
In an earlier post, I railed against Saudi racism because of its insidious and destructive as well as anti-Islamic nature. One point from the editorial that particularly caused my ire was this
…. in most Gulf countries, including Saudi Arabia most foreigners rarely interact with locals and if they do, they communicate in a language, which is a mix of badly spoken Arabic and sign language. It could be termed gibberish.
I found this video on YouTube which completely demolishes the argument of the author of that piece.
I regretfully conclude however, that no matter how good the person in the video above speaks Arabic he will never be given the chance for full and equal citizenship rights in any Arab Gulf/Khaleeji country because he’s not a ‘true Arab’. Doesn’t that sound too much like all the other racists ideologies we’ve fought and overcome in the past?!?
