Ricky Martin Wants to Educate the Ignorant

Ricky Martin picIn his first trip to the Middle East, Peurto Rican popper Ricky Martin is pledging to become a spokesperson for the Arab youth, declaring he will try to change "negative perceptions" of Arabs in Western countries.

Incredibly, Martin said those words while wearing a traditional Arab kaffiyeh headscarf with the Jew-bashing slogan "Jerusalem Is Ours" written in Arabic on it.

"I promise I will become a spokesperson, if you allow me to, a spokesperson on your behalf. I will defend you and try to get rid of any stereotypes," the 33-year-old singer told teenagers from 16 Arab countries at an Arab Children's conference on Monday.

"I have been a victim of stereotypes. I come from Latin America and to some countries, we are considered `losers,' drug traffickers, and that is not fair because that is generalizing," said Martin. "Those comments are made out of ignorance and we have to sometimes ignore the ignorant, but we also have to educate the ignorant. You have me here as a friend."

Later, the ignorant Martin apologized for wearing the Arab scarf without knowing its anti-Israel meaning: "I had no idea that the kaffiyeh scarf presented to me contained language referring to Jerusalem, and I apologise to anyone who might think I was endorsing its message."
