      a Middle Easterner if they came across us; there's just not enough of us, and we're a very diverse lot.  Most of us in the US are Christian, not Muslim.  We look like some unknown ethnic group if we're light skinned and some other unknown ethnic group if we're darker.  The only way someone can recognize us is if we're wearing traditional garb that is now associated with Islam.

      By the way - probably quite a few Middle Easterners watch and agree with Bill O'Reilly.
