Stereotypes of Arabs

Here's a short film about stereotypes of Arabs in films (think terrorists). The far-fetched plots and occasionally really bad acting are amusing, and the consistent portrayal of Arabs as terrorists is depressing. (The worst scene: Maybe the one with Chuck Norris).

If such a film were made about Christians in the media, which stereotypes should be in it? Certainly money-grubbing, sexually-abusive clergy.

Which other ones?
