ADC Protests T. Boone Pickens Ad

The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee is protesting the latest T. Boone Pickens energy message, which apparently uses the Arabic language and stereotypical imagery. The ADC press release is here; I think the message they're talking about is this one. (It allows embedding but I don't want to spread the message via my blog, so to see it you'll have to click.)

Pickens wants to stimulate more interest in developing US gas reserves, where he has large interests. Inadvertently, his ad may encourage more people to learn Arabic! Look for the silver lining.
