    So why the hell don't they attack them? (I know, it's not money, success, acceptance, it's Who we are...)

    Interesting. I suspect it's because the better Arabs ditch Arabia and come here. As with all racial and ethnic groups, Arabs are stratified, and the more capable ones are more likely to seek out America because they have the means and the werewithal. The successful Arabs in the U.S. I've met tend to be lighter-skinned. (This is unlike Mexico, where it's the bottom-of-the-barrel types who come over.)

    The European Arabs, by contrast, have far less travel --- no oceans involved. So, the bar is lower for them, and they're likely to be lower quality.

    A racist theory, to be sure (and as expected), but it's probably truer than the politically correct and self-serving theories.
