Oh my god, I’m livid! There’s a new TV show that’s gonna be airing on FX called Tyrant. It’s about a…

This just in. Every Jew that lives in America is white.

Listen, you little twerp, my original post was about the overwhelmingly negative representation of Arabs in American popular media, where Arab characters are not only played by non-Arabs but their stories are distorted, racist portrayals, too. In this case, that representation was created by an Israeli Jew, who also happens to be the creator of another Islamophobic, anti-Arab series that is popular in America. That’s relevant because of the Israeli Jewish system of oppression that is instituted against Arabs in occupied Palestine and beyond.

But you and your shitty buddies jumped on my post and started with your shitty comments and jokes about how Jews and Arabs aren’t all that different so there’s nothing to be angry about here.

If none of you are white, which I highly doubt, you fucking fooled me. Your behavior was about as white and privileged as it could fucking get. Next time, keep your lily white ass out of issues that don’t concern you.

Actually, Jews and Arabs really AREN’T that different. Both faiths have very similar values and traditions. I’m Jewish, and I’ve had quite a few Muslim friends and that was always something we would talk about.

I love Tyrant. And if you watched, you’d see that many of the Arabs are not negatively portrayed. I’ve been following Middle East politics for over 20 years and I feel it’s a very accurate portrayal of events.
