Yes I know but Caucasian is a very vague, inaccurate modern racial grouping to begin with. Many Arabs could fall into a visual "caucasian" label (as could many Mestizo mixes). Caucasian doesn't really mean white in many contexts for many people.
That said, what's interesting is that he threw in with some archaic, primordial Middle East desert fantasy made by Arabs and he's probably not even largely racially Arab, Asian. That's the true irony. Islam is the prime reason that part of the world has no respect globally.

Well, it might be part of it, but I don't see Indonesia as having quite the same problem (in terms of how others view it). And not because Indonesia has behaved better than Arab states. It has been worse than most, in fact.That said, what's interesting is that he threw in with some archaic, primordial Middle East desert fantasy made by Arabs and he's probably not even largely racially Arab, Asian. That's the true irony. Islam is the prime reason that part of the world has no respect globally.
Ironically, Indonesia undertook 25 years of mass murder in East Timor so severe that it can probably be termed "attempted genocide"...and the West was all happy and eager to help them in their endeavor. Intentionally and materially helping mass murder. (Same with the "communist" [sic] slaughter in Indonesia itself in 1965).
So part of the view point of "respect" might arise from our determining with whom we are allied in terror, rather than an objective view of their actual bad behavior.

Another interesting aspect of Eastern European Caucasians from old Soviet states throwing in with Islam is that it's true, they aren't Arabs mixed with Asian in a majority of their genes. They truly are not. So it is very odd (and, frankly, pathetic) that they adopt and promote Islam which is absolutely the religion of the Arabs. The same is very much true of many Turks if we're being raw here. Most Turks are simply culturally Arabized mixed Caucasians.
In a very factual sense, if you want to see the failing parts of the world economically, technologically, progressively and other, all you have to do is find the Islamic countries. They are all at rock bottom unless you compare them to failed states such as the Congo or Zimbabwe.
