So MohamedBob has joined a 35+ soccer league here. There are enough Arabic-speakers to form their own team. They don't have a name yet, but for some reason my suggestions below were roundly rejected.

* Los Terroristos
* The Green Knights of the Koran
* 1001 Arabian Nights
* White Man Can't Kick

I'm sure they would welcome other ideas.

I bet "Arabian Knights" would be rejected, too.

How about "Scary Swarthy Men?" Or "Not Mexicans?"

No worries! Very clever indeed - I especially like "Not Mexican" as Mexican is a language here, did you know?

Heh. It's a language here, too, but only in the sense that it's a legitimate dialect of Spanish. Mexican:Spanish::American:English, if you will.

Yeah. That's why there's a movie called "Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World."

I agree. I know there are a lot of comedy shows in Morocco that even *I* understood.

it seems like they were looking somewhere where they felt safe, only they might as well have gone to the muslim neighbourhoods in any american city if they were reluctant to actually go where the predominant culture is muslim. well, ok, they went to pakistan, but India?

Maybe because Albert Brooks is Jewish? India probably doesn't have a history of anti-Semitic feeling!
