One of my colleugue circulated this stupid email across the entire office.

I would like to reply back, do u have any jpg's, or gifs, or anything written in a rhytmic style which talks abouts the oprression of muslim all over the world and the american support behind it, jazakallah n here is the email title " Attacked by two arabs"


Jassem, an Arab child, entered his classroom on the first day of school in Ohio.

"What is your name?" asked the teacher.

"Jassem".... answered the kid.

"You are in America now. From now on your name will be Johnny," replied the teacher.

In the evening, Jassem returned home. "How was your day, Jassem?" asked his mother.

"My name is not Jassem. I'm in America and now my name is Johnny."

"Ah, are you ashamed of your name, are you trying to dishonor your parents, your heritage? Shame on you!" and she beat him.

Then she called his father and he too beat him.

The next day Jassem returned to school..

When the teacher saw him with all the bruises she asked, "What happened to you little Johnny"?

"Well ma'am, 4 hours after I becoming an American, I was attacked by two Arabs at home."

I think it's meant to be a joke, and if you work for a large company then a very improper joke. Possibly worth reporting if it bugs you. Not worth trying to insult them back.

lol this joke is not giving a positive image of Americans either , right ?

hmmm still if need a counter joke ....

A man is taking a walk in Central park in New York. Suddenly he sees a little girl being attacked by a pit bull dog. He runs over and starts fighting with the dog. He succeeds in killing the dog and saving the girl’s life.


A policeman who was watching the scene walks over and says: “You are a hero,” tomorrow you can read it in all the newspapers: “Brave New Yorker saves the life of little girl.” The man says: “But I am not a New Yorker!” “Oh, then it will say in newspapers in the morning: Brave American saves life of little girl” – the policeman answers.


“But I am not an American!” – says the man. “Oh, what are you then?” The man says: “I am a Saudi!” Then next day the newspapers say: “Islamic extremist kills innocent American dog.”

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem,

As-Salaamu 'Alaykum Wa Rahmatullah,

I would suggest that you take this issue very delicately,if you must you could talk to the worker who originally sent the email and tell how you feel about it.See how the person reacts to that first,if the person just wanted to have fun and joke around,without trying to offend anyone that person could apologize easily without any harm,if not then remain calm,insha'Allaah Allaah will assist you and clear your path.

Americans are good at brainwashing. The CIA, FBI and all.
King Faisal of Saudi Arabia, who was a great man was assassinated was shot point-blank and killed by his half-brother's son who was brainwashed by the American secret agency CIA.

It was meant to be a joke and really shouldn't be taken all that seriously. I found it kind of amusing... I hadn't heard it before ;D

You have to remember that humor is very important. Without something to balance out all of the serious issues in the world, things get out of hand, so it's important to be able to laugh at yourself every once in a while.

I've heard about the joke.
In my opinion, it does seem to make fun of arabs, but I also think that it actually shows how easily people get brainwashed in the USA and the racist attitude that is prevalent among its population, and takes a swipe at that racist attitude.
It is in similar vein of the second joke about a saudi who saved the girl's life, how public opinions (in USA) is easily formed by the media.

You miss the point completely by thinking about it too much. Its a JOKE. You laugh, and you move on. In fact, obsessing about it, and ultimately making generalities about the intelligence of Americans (and our vulnerabilities to magic brainwashing technology) show that you may not get that.

I know that it IS a JOKE (need I bolden the word?)
In fact, I (sort of) defend the joke, because it is quite incisive in reflecting american psyche.

Avoid using picasa or flickr to upload pictures to show on these board.
for some unknown reason, picasa and flickr do not connect well with this board.

I suggest using photobucket, which is easier and simpler to use.

They really show the injustice the world shows to the Muslims. I think I have a mail with a load of news headlines where when a crime is committed by a Muslims it says "Muslims man etc.", but if it's a non-Muslim commits a crime, there is no mention of religion. I'll try to find it and post it here Insha Allah.

But please don't go over board with the e-mailing. You might find this on your office bulletin board:

:sl: guys

Alright here is the replies which i got from 2 fellow collegues, now both are idol worshippers

here is the 1st one.

We come here to work and not to forward our thoughts in regards to Geeta Or Islam ....

Let's be Insaan ...

As we all know there is only one God ... We know him by different names.

Do not forward these kind of mails ... Its of no use ....

Nobody is gonna praise you ...

Sab padenge aur bhul jayenge ...

We all are friends ... Bole toh Tention nai lene ka .. aur dene ka bhi nai ..

Enjoy :-*

__________________________________________________ ___________________

Here is the 2nd one

There was once a boy ( infant ) who came crying to his mother.
Some neighboring rich influencial playmate had been bad to him.
The dear mother consoling the child told him,
'Shyam , dear do not cry. Do you know while walking home how we try and avoid the puddles on the road. But we still end up getting dirty.
In the same way while going through your life you will encounter difficult situations.
Remember not to be affected by them adversely.
Just as we come home and washup we are supposed to remember our goodness and keep clean, our minds and thoughts."

The kid Shyam, still had doubts why should he not retaliate.
The mother pointed out " Dear Shyam, if the bad do not change their way, why should the good change their and become just like their oppressors. The good should stick to their goodness too."

So look around their are animals and plant life who have suffered at the hands of man but they have never turned against us.
We in turn have always been the aggressors suppressing the weak, dumb and down trodden.
We need to become as humble as the nature around us.
All that God has ever asked from us is to respect our gifts and not abuse our advantage.
Speech , Vision , Emotions, should not be misused to express our misplaced sense of justice.
Please live and let live.

Sam

And here is the one which i got from my LEADER : subject :- Irrelavant & Inappropriate Emails

Team,

It has been observed and came to our notice that a lot of forwarded emails not pertaining to work are circulated across the floor. Some of which have been brought to our notice and may cause issues on the floor. In past, we have taken strict actions against such activities and issued warning letters. If you are caught being a part of such activities and chain emails/replies, strict action will be taken against you as well. Please be aware and adhere to the code of conduct.


Now i replied to both of them except My team leader.

The email was reported to my Leader instantly because it was against injustice towards muslim community, now for you consideration, emails containing other religious stuff and also jokes have been circulating within our department since a very long time but the moment i sent something of islam it was reported to the leader instantly

this really shows few of my Colleague's jealousy towards muslim and islam.

So you sent an email with those cartoons on them, and then receive a mass email from the leader about inappropriate emails being sent at work? Is that correct?

You should get the thread moved to one of the private sections since this page will be indexed by google. I know it's unlikely, but if any of your workmates google your forward or what they sent (maybe just to find the source), they'll end up here and that won't look good.
