....in Australia and the UK, the term "Asian" usually refers to those from the Middle East(it does not include the India subcontinent).

When they are referring to Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, etc., they use the term "Oriental".

I don't know about the UK but I'm an Australian and your information is(to use an Aussie expression) bulldust.

The term "Asian" in Australian general usage refers to anywhere from China through to Indonesia, although some might include India and Pakistan

Oriental is rarely used and everyone from the Middle East is an Arab or if not the phrase "from the Middle East" is used.

Well, this is a sh1tty thing to wake up to.

Just so I have this straight the man was of olive skin complexion (to be PC) and he is in custody?

I wonder if this has any thing to do w/ the attempted arrested of that head terrorist in the hospital. I was watching FNC last night and Geraldo was over IN Bail at the hospital and they showed lines of teenage Inslamicsts ready to start a riot if the cops took him from the hospital, so the cops backed down at let him stay.
