Incompetent Arab Parenting

Allow me to state the obvious…The Middle East is an upside down place, it has been for a long time and I’m afraid it always will be. When there is a problem you’ve got to go to the source and I think I’ve found it, you can blame everything on the fact that Arabs are the worst parents in the world. Allow me to provide an example of poor Arab parenting. There is an Egyptian coffee shop that I go to with my good friends every once in a while, the food is edible, the people are nice and the waitresses are sub-par at best. Like most coffee shops the air inside has more carcinogens than two tons of asbestos ceiling tile. Despite the obvious health hazards, who walks in at 1:00 a.m.? An Arab couple pushing a stroller! As terrible as that is, I really wasn’t surprised; this is typical Arab parent behavior. I’m pretty sure Osama bin Laden spent a lot of time as a baby in coffee shops and I can’t see how massive amounts of second hand smoke late at night could’ve benefited his development. Just a thought.

Although you may not have intended it to be, this reads simply as a racist rant. is it really reasonable to generalize an entire race, over the entire earth, based on your observations in one location?

(rhetorical - no!)

Try reading West of Kabul, East of New York if you want to understand where the cultural problems find their source.

Hubble Bubble toil and trouble! Leilouta's mom said that Muslim men smoke so much because they need to have at least one vice. They can't drink liquor, they are not supposed to have sex outside of marriage(ha!) so they must smoke a lot! And also, no sex, makes them nervous!!!!! Anyway my American mom died of lung cancer at the age of 56, she also smoked around me until my eyes would swell shut. She was a bad mom, may she rest in peace! Oh yeah and quit being racist against yourself, you are starting to sound Jewish, Shobrawy! In ti mejnoon!
