'The Pentagon is asking US soldiers in Iraq to stop posting private combat videos on to the internet amid fears that they could be regarded as anti-Arab. Many of the digital clips feature explosions, gunfire and even dead bodies, with the images often set to a soundtrack of rock ballads, rap or heavy metal music. Defence officials believe they could be interpreted as portraying the military as unsympathetic to Arabs and obsessed with barbarism.' http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2006/07/26/wtapes26.xml 'The Pentagon was woken up to the potential negative impact of the phenomenon by film of a marine singing a song he had composed called Haji Girl, in which a US soldier falls in love with an Iraqi woman and is then ambushed by her family when he is taken to meet them. It was criticised last month in the US by the Council on American-Islamic relations, which was outraged by its mocking of the Arabic language' Personally speaking I rather liked the song.
