Quote Of The Day

Quote Of The Day

Saying "the protesters are people who eat sushi and smoke nargilas" is racist, because the person who said it meant to compare the protesters to Arabs. I did not know that to smoke a nargila is a deprecating word.

  -- MK Ahmed Tibi

and in response, one of the coalition MKs called out "Do Arabs also eat sushi?", meaning just like that part wasnt comparing them to Arabs so also the nargila part wasnt.

Funny thing is how Tibi assumes "Arab" is deprecating..
