  • @Joe Issa Please be kinder in you r generalizations! Not all Middle Easterners are bad, though we may disagree with what they stand for! I am from Egypt, and I do not stand for what others do. Please be kind in what you say! Like Jesus would... (WWJD).....

  • Its not 'of course' or obvious this person is American, wake up you asshole, the last 100-200 years which mean everything at this point, Americans have had the most influence by far and its not even close. I bet the morons that say that shit about 'obviously American' are the crazy, lost-it-all, terrorist, middle easterners who used to have influence 1000s of years ago, but no longer at all. Not only that, these middle easterner, Muslims are only now known for being worse than wild animals, speaking of going back 1000s of years savages, vicious terrorists and nothing else these days. Realize the truth.
