  1. I was only thinking about this the other day “Arabs invented story telling”. You know, all the signs have been there for us forever. All the old movies depict the Arab as a lying cheat – always the bad guys. Slave traders were always the men in turbans and were barbaric and cruel. Even the stories of One Thousand and One Nights were often cruel and always male centric. And as for that poor woman telling stories to her captor – the only way she could save her life was to tell him stories (and I think the “stories” were a metaphor for sex) is just another form of Muslim domination. They have always been like this so why are we now surprised?

  2. Despite that fact that arabs NEVER invented story telling, let alone anything else, Theresa is right about the stories of the One Thousand and One nights – they were a warning for us that we did not heed.
