They call this training?

A new training DVD will be distributed to nearly 200,000 Homeland Security employees in the US. A panel of Arab and Muslim scholars shown in the training video are supposed to enlighten the homeland security guys about the Arab / Muslim culture.

In the video, an Arab man is being questioned by law-enforcement officers and suddenly becomes uncooperative and refuses to make eye contact.

Question: is this suspicious behavior or a clash of cultures?

According to the panel: "It's a misconception that the action is evasive -- Arab culture considers it impolite to stare."

I don't get it, so the guy being questioned wants to be polite to his interrogators?

BULLSHIT. We love staring. Where did they get this panel from?
