"Out of 1000 films that have Arab & Muslim characters (from the year 1896 to 2000) 12 were postive depictions, 52 were even handed and the rest of the 90O and so were negative." From the video description.
Unsurprisingly, Chuck Norris out-racists everyone.
5 Stars for Chuck Norris.
Though to be fair, the Law and Order guy is actually a gringo.
And the clip is taken out of context, badly. The episode that's from is about an ordinary, white jewish guy adopting radical Islam just so he can get back at his ex-girlfriend who I believe he eventually murders. Not really an episode about "grr filthy mud people arab racism!" anywhere near on par with fucking Delta Force.
Oh but don't we get defensive about our Law and Order.
Law and Order: Special Treatment Unit
Well, I can't say I felt *that* strongly about it.

-1 for lack of king falafel.

I gues you're not a cannonball run fan, for shame. FOR SHAAAAME!!!!
Thought it would be preachy, but really well done.
Chuck Norris: "God will protect me"
Arab: "Allah will protect me"
Chuck Norris: "Thats the dumbest shit I've ever heard"
Chuck Norris or the video? Cause the video provided lulz. And who is it being patronizing to?

Weird. In the submission list this clip did NOT come up under the arabs tag. I'm sorry y'all.
+1 for Bill Baghdad (seen here menacing Mickey Dolenz)

Some of those 80's action films did not age well at all.

No Bloodsport, an unforgivable oversight.

The book this is inspired by, Jack Shaheen's Reel Bad Arabs, is a thousand-page cinder block that indexes demonization. And it's years out of date by now.
This really opened my eyes. It's time for a change in Hollywood.
We need better representation of Hispanics in film and television!
Five stars for the singlemuslim.com banner that google ads has put at the top of my screen however.
-1 star for the omission of the sand people from star wars
What movie was the "shooting an entire city square full of arabs" scene from?
Rules of Engagement
Also: come on, this was duped twice
Yes Jeffrey, I am an asshole and a hypocrite, and I'm sorry.
But it did hold the room together pretty well.
Four stars for the Monkees.

"How can you eat this shit?" PTUI
I guess there wasn't enough lobster and caviar in it.

Hanna Schygulla was in Delta Force???? This blows my mind, because it means that there's only one degree of seperation between Chuck Norris and R.W. Fassbinder. Who knew?
I know my dad would love the hell out of this clip.
