A video has been going viral on Facebook that appears to show an ‘angry Arab man’ spitting at a female hospital receptionist in London, and it has reopened a whole debate about attitudes of people from the Middle East towards women.
In the clip, he is seen getting involved in a heated discussion, and then this is followed by a brief pause before he is seen returning and continuing an astonishing attack on the hospital staff.
Take a look below – it has already been shared more than 3,500 times with upwards of 200,000 views in less than 24 hours.
While spitting attacks and similar incidents occur on a regular basis (whether or not they are caught on CCTV), this particular incident has been met with a barrage of furious comments.
The precise circumstances aren’t currently clear from the video – it was posted with the caption:
Angry Arab man spits at a hospital receptionist in London, UK. See what happens next. Of course all of this is a result of ‘Islamophobia’.
There are many who feel that this is a demonstration of old fashioned attitudes towards women – it cannot be denied that women are treated very poorly in some Middle Eastern nations like Saudi Arabia.
Whatever the situation, there is simply no excuse for it in Britain, and we hope that the staff involved were all OK afterwards.
