I am saddened that I had not seen this before. If you want to stop laughing, check out the violence at the end and the racist youtube comments that follow the link.

Here's my reply to your questions in your comment! I answered on my blog, but then thought you might not see them there :)-Western toilets aren’t the norm…oftentimes it was just a hole in the floor or maybe a toilet, but no seat. If memory serves (it’s been a long time!), the bathrooms in the airport were holes in the floor…-My undergrad offered a short term study abroad every other year led by one of the Sociology profs. A good friend had gone in 2004 and she just couldn’t stop talking about it. She basically told me I HAD to go…so I did!-Before this trip I had never left the country, even to go to Mexico or Canada (and I’m from the West Coast!). I never thought the Middle East would be my first foray into the world, but I think for me, like for a lot of people, my interest in the region peaked after 9/11. A big focus of this trip was interfaith dialogue between Christians and Muslims and that spoke to me a lot. I think we have a lot more similarities than differences and it bothered me to see Christians being so hateful to Muslims following 9/11 and vice versa.
