The Saudi Ambassador to the U.N. has just finished giving a speech,
and walks out into the lobby where he meets his American counterpart.
They shake hands and as they walk the Saudi says, "You know, I have
just one question about what I have seen in America".
The American says "Well your Excellency, anything I can do to help you
I will do."

The Saudi whispers "My son watches this show 'Star Trek' and in it
there are Russians and Blacks and Asians, but never any Arabs.
He is very upset. He doesn't understand why there are never any Arabs
in Star Trek."

The American laughs and leans over. "That's because it takes place in
the future."
