Middle Eastisms, Pt. 3

Following on from yesterday, part 3 in the series of Perceptions of the Middle East:

Group 3

And because this image not only comprises shocking writing but also devastatingly diabolical cameraship, a breakdown:

Middle East

Islam, oil, Dubai, Mecca and Medina, desert, terror, Arab-Israeli conflict – war – two Gulf Wars, Palestinians, Jews, Hamas, food – hummus – olives.

Oddly, two themes are becoming recurrent: food and war.

What complex beings we humans are.

    Which reminds me, what’s that dish with lamb / yoghurt / rice called that’s so popular in Jordan? I remember they served it at every place we were invited to back when I was a kid!
    Food and war pretty much sums up humanity’s history ;-]
