    i will call this the PAULA ABDUL effect…..

    Muslim name but christian faith….
    Actually there are nearly 0 muslim middle eastern celebs

    PAULA ABDUL(jew) TONY SHALOUB + NASRI and all of them are not muslims…

    I think there are bias against muslims a lot

    Only a few muslims do wear HEADSCARFES most of them are not visible as muslims…. especially in the USA some can think of them being italian american etc……

      His name isn’t muslim, his name is Arab. It’s like saying how a person named David Johnson has a Jewish name, but is Christian. Names have no religion.

    Doesn’t look Middle Eastern at all. He looks like someone who is mixed – Amerindian, European and maybe Jewish.

    I have never seen a Middle Eastern who looks like that.

    But again, that’s the beauty of this website – to be surprised by ethnic makeups.

    why did you add “Arab” to Palestinian? are there non-Arab Palestinians? same for Queen Rania.

    • phaedra says:

      Yet again you blatantly show your putrid ignorance, Andrew.

      Do you know the meaning of “Arab”? True Arabs come from Saudi Arabia. At that time, there were native people living in the Levant. The Arab conquest came with swords in the name of Muhammad. Most “Arabs” in the Levant are now mixed – Some look more Med and others look stereotypically Arabian.

      • andrew says:

        I just meant that it wasn’t really necessary to add Arab to Palestinian. Palestinians are Arabs. Because as you said they were Arabized. And they don’t look Mediterranean anymore.

        you are a piece of shit

        you are my poo……… Stop making bad comments about muslims you piece of shit

  4. He annoys me and I don’t know why.

  5. neiltennant says:

    what a wonder

    he is christian

    there are actually no arab celebs or middle eastern celebs of muslim religion worldwide

    • Capricious says:

      Because they’re too radicalized and religious, the many of them. Let’s face it.

      Arab Christians are rather liberal and westernized in comparison.

      Now don’t give me the progressive PC bullshit that all religion is equally bad and that there are bad Arab Christians…..

      • neiltennant says:

        You are a piece of shit….. not all muslims are religious

        actually i know a lot of yugoslawian and turkish muslims who have european features. Most of them green eyes and especially the bosnians but they have also muslim names

        and they face discrimination a lot !!!!!!!!!

        I know a turk who has blonde hair and pale skin. Most turks are darker. But he has a turkish muslim name and everybody tells him to change his name because he cannot find a job…. He works as a director
