Season 6 of The Sopranos has been rather dull so far but there have been some entertaining quotes pertaining to the Middle East.

Episode 4, in Tony's recovery room, when the Born-Again Missionary has just left after condemning Evolution and insisting that the Earth is only 6,000 years old.

Christopher: What's he sayin', there were dinosaurs back with Adam and Eve?

Tony: I guess...

Christopher: No way, T Rex in the Garden of Eden? Adam and Eve would be runnin' all the time, scared shitless. But the Bible says it was Paradise.

Beth Rabkin: You can disagree with Evangelicals, but they're great friends of the Jews, because Israel is the Holy Land.

Hesh Rabkin, in a condenscending tone: You wait...

Episode 5, at the Bing

Tony: Let me ask you something - those 2 Arabs, with the credit cards, Fazool and whatever his name is...

Christopher: Yeah...

Tony: You think there’s a chance that they could be "alkaydas", or something like that?

Christopher: Mmm. you know, at one point it did cross my mind.

Tony: And...

Christopher: I don't think so. They're gun nuts, but the smaller guy Ahmed, when those Danish cartoons got published, he was very upset, but at the protest he said that he hated the cartoons, but that the rioting shit would just bring bad attention to all Muslims. And the other guy Mohammed, his brother's a government interrogator in, uhhhh, Lebanon, or Syria. Plus, Mohammed and his girlfriend have a dog, a Springer Spaniel...

Episode 6, at the South Bronx Law Center

Meadow: The Federal Prosecutors office won't tell you why your son's being held?

Afghan father: Or where. It has been four days now since he's been arrested, and we have no money to hire a lawyer. [...]

Afghan mother: He is a good boy.

Afghan father: The FBI went to his school and took him like a criminal. This is America?!

Afghan mother: It's not easy to be Muslim now. They wouldn't let Afaf skate at local rink unless she removed her headscarf.

Meadow: You’re kidding me, why?

Afaf (Afghan daughter): They said it was for insurance. It might fall off and someone could trip.

Afghan mother: If she had been wearing a yarmulke it would have been a different story, you can bet!
