    Saddam Hussein in an annoying phone call to George Bush asked why the
    American media discriminates against Arabs. Perplexed, Bush asks
    Hussein to please explain himself. Hussein stated that in Star Trek
    there were lots of white people, black people were well represented,
    Asian people showed up in a variety of roles, Indians (both American and
    those from India) showed up occasionally, and there was even the random
    Eskimo -- but there were no Arabs. President Bush smiled, then said
    "That's right. Star Trek is about the future."

    I believe the original version of this jokes goes:

    The Iraqi Ambassador to the UN has just finished giving a speech, and walks out into the lobby where he meets President Bush. They shake hands and as they walk the Iraqi says, "You know, I have just one question about what I have seen in America."

    President Bush says "Well your Excellency, anything I can do to help you, I will do."

    The Iraqi whispers "My son watches this show 'StarTrek' 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." President Bush laughs and leans toward the Iraqi, and whispers back,
    "It's because it takes place in the future...."
