I'm taking a sociology course this semester called "Peoples and Cultures of the Middle East" and the professor was going over some of the reading we will be doing. He starts to go off about this one author who has written about the Middle East but has completely tarnished the way things really are. For instance, he claims that the reason Muslim extremists exist is because all the men over there are sexually confused/humiliated. He goes on to explain that this is because the men over there do not have contact with women like we do here, because of their religion (i.e. covering their bodies with clothing). He states that because of this, the Muslim extremists become so angry and jealous of our culture that they kill innocent people. He claims that all the Muslims only "think with what's between their legs and not between their ears" and that's why they do what they do. I can't remember the name of the author, but he has since become an authority figure of some kind of military or government related agency, and his books are constantly being sent to Iraq for our soldiers to read so they can all have a tarnished impression of the opposing forces. Can you believe that shit? Get that fucking crap away from our troops. As if the situation wasn't bad enough over there, now all of our soldiers will start to think of the people there as sub-human scum. Damnit all.
I really wish I could remember the guy's name, anyone know it?
