Why We Haven’t Caught Osama Bin Laden
This is the politically incorrect version but I suspect that the reason we haven’t caught Osama is not because we are not looking for him. No, the reason is because we are not looking in the right place.
The truth is that he is probably already here in the US. You know that guy behind the counter at the local convenience store, the one you give a $1.50 to for a slurpee, he looks pretty familiar doesn’t he. If only more Americans spoke a language other than English we might realize that he is not talking to his wife or listening to his mom talk about what is happening back in the old country.
No he is busy ringing up your cigarettes and donuts and ordering another missile strike or suicide bombing somewhere.

Apology accepted. You are entitled to your opinion. We disagree on this.

I’m really sorry about my strong language and personal insult in my first comment. I stand by the claim that the post sounds racist.

Maybe you should read this article:
Nearly four years after the terrorist attacks, Muslim, South Asian and Arab-American employees continue to report discrimination on the job.
Compared with the first two years after the Sept. 11 attacks, the number of employees saying they’ve been discriminated against as a form of backlash because of the attacks has declined. But charges continue to come in, indicating that Arab-American and other workers still feel discriminated against.
“People are being called ‘terrorist’ at work, things of that sort,” says Arsalan Iftikhar, national legal director at Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). “A lot of cases continue to go on. People have been called Osama bin Laden, told they are going to mosque to learn how to build a bomb.”

This is the politically incorrect version
You think? It makes you sound like a racist piece of shit. A Jew should know better about the dangers of stereotyping.
