Editor’s note: The following post is based on recent tweets by Tarek Fatah reflecting his views on the current uprising in Bahrain. It must be noted the each and every word in this post has been written by Tarek Fatah, however, for better clarity and logical flow, some tweets have been joined and reorganized. The actual exchange at Twitter can be read at the following two links:1, 2. It is indeed sad to see a man, who has done excellent work to expose and confront anti-Semitism, himself engaged in shameful stereotyping of Shia Muslims.
Do you believe I suffer from ShiaPhobia?

What makes you so excited at the thought of Arab civilians in Bahrain lynching your own countrymen? Are your a Shia Pakistani?
What’s with Canada’s Shia Muslims from EastAfrica. They’ve become enslaved to the Iranian $ Bahrain Mullahs and hostile to Indo-Pakistanis
Just pissed off with Pakis who believe they are Nadir Shah’s left testicle and Bin Qasim’s Arab anus.
Bahraini freedom? You gotta be kidding! Your freedom is only for Arabs, not dark-skinned Asians. Racism never works.
Most Pakistani Shias on twitter back the Iranian-backed Bahrainis beating anyone with a Pakistani background.
Hate Crimes against #Pakistanis in #Bahrain as Arabs beat up wounded labourers: A bloody ‘revolution’ in Bahrain.
Why are you silent on atrocity by Arabs in Bahrain against Pakistanis? Why are you silent on the atrocity by Arabs in Bahrain against Pakistanis? Why would a dead Pakistani count less to you than a shia Arab Bahraini?
Shia Pakistani serving the Iranian murderous regime that has one million dead in its hands. Disgraceful. Have you no self-respect?
Bahrain to deport 90 Lebanese Shias for alleged ties to #Hezbollah and #Iran.
Problem with Shias like you have worshiped Khomeni to the extent, his murderous blood-soaked regime has blinded you. Million died. Any Muslim who cares more for his sect deserves to be the blind who couldn’t see Darfur Genocide.
Bahraini people? I doubt you consider the 2 Bangladeshis to be as Bahraini as you being Pakistani. Your sensitivities are pretty selective. you have no issue with Pak’s 60-year occupation of Balochistan, but are ok with Arabs lynching Paks.
Pak mercenaries? Baloch have been there since 1638. U folks need to taste Arab racism, not dinars. How do u know all Baluch side with ‘despot’? And why shld it matter whether it is Khameniei or Khalifa? Why do u back the Iranians? You do know about the Baloch? Those dark-skinned guys no one in Pakistan wants to know. That is your defense of lynching? Has it come down to the indignity Pakistanis will find a justification for their own humiliation?
Are you from Bahrain? If not, what is your interest about a place that treats you like garbage. Of course you are not from Bahrain. Your interest in that country is purely sectarian, not humanitarian, so stop the charade.
Faking Arab or Persian identities can be injurious to one’s mental health. I am referring to …those who find Honour in the insults that are heaped on them by any Iranian or Arab or Turk…shameless, lapdog Pakistani happy he is spit upon by an Arab or Iranian. Please understand I have nothing but contempt for Pakistanis faking Arab or Persian ancestry. Its what u do with names; do we ‘buy’ into this fake heritage or reality; we are all Hindu converts. So tired of Pakistanis faking either a Persian or Arab ancestry by denying their Indianess. Wearing last names to ensure they are not Pakis. The difference is I know who I am; an Indian born in Pakistan, not a Persian leftover by an invader nor an Arab. Personal!!! I wdn’t touch Ahmedinejad’s apologists with a 10-foot pole. Pity, the twit has so many slaves in #Pakistan. I am a Pakistani Canadian. I don’t get my orders from the King or the Mad Ahmedinejad.
There are Pakistanis who if pissed on by an Arab would say “its drizzling”. If an Iranian spit on them? Pakistanis are so obsessed with religion, they haven’t got a clue abt racism, when they face it or use it.
I am wondering at your thrill at seeing Pakistanis being urinated in their mouths by Arabs.
Arabs treat you like dogs in the Gulf, yet for shia tribal reasons u serve the very people who spit on u, Shame.You should go and join the Bahraini shias. Once they detect your Pakistani ancestry, they’ll educate you about your worth.
You accuse me of using White Supremicist language from South Africa and then say “what cliches”? You seem to be suffering from a serious bout of inferiority complex that forces you to be a lapdog for Hamas or Hezbollah.
Only a visceral hatred of the Jew can explain why a Pakistani would be ok with Ayatollahs killing 100,000 Iranians but get worked up on Israel’s attack on Palestinians? What sort of a mindset allows you to look the other way
Shia Pakistani serving the Iranian murderous regime that has one million dead in its hands. Disgraceful. Have you no self-respect? Yes, I’ve seen the tens of thousands of Pakistani Shias march against Ahmedinejad & Khamenei. Yeah , that’ll be the day! Maybe you guys should stop spitting on America’s face and ned this obsessive ant-Americanism if you would care for US help.
Do u believe I suffer from ShiaPhobia? That is such petty nonsense.
