  Killing an Arab - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The lyrics describe a shooting on a beach, in which the Arab of the title is killed by the song's narrator; in Camus' story the main character, Meursault, kills an Arab standing on a beach and then stares out to sea blinded by the sun.
The lyrics, however, were changed from "Killing an Arab" to "Kissing an Arab." When performed at their Royal Albert Hall show on April 1, 2006, the lyrics were changed to "Killing Another." Smith also sang a whole new opening verse for the song.
"Killing an Arab" was covered in 2003 by Sydney rockers Turpentine as a protest against the American invasion of Iraq.

An after-life in this earthly life, a life beyond the collapse of their corroded autocracies.
He was killed in cold blood by a soulless who had been waiting for him that Thursday morning, who watched his radiant smile and blew him to pieces.
The versatility of his talents, the extraordinary expanse of his interests and erudition, his unabashed love of life, from the rights of the disenfranchised to an appetite for the worldly, his fearless defiance and courage: all keeps him alive in the mind.

Amongst those killed was Aljazeera TV's correspondent, Tariq Ayoub, who died in a US air strike on the satellite channel's Baghdad bureau.

 Robert Christgau: Creative Censorship
Also in 1986, U.S. warplanes bombed Tripoli to the eager cheers of Americans who had fixed on Arabs as their ethnic scapegoats of choice in the wake of the Iran hostage debacle, the horrors of Lebanon, and a ceaseless barrage of anti-"terrorist" propaganda.
Smith's sticker distortion to the contrary, "Killing an Arab" is not "a song which decries the existence of all prejudice and consequent violence." It doesn't have a neat little socially redeeming message.
I'm not an existentialist partly because I think existentialism is too private, placing too small and arbitrary an emphasis on the sociopolitical, but neither do I want to live in a sociopolitical environment where such a position can't be dramatized in a manner that offends some citizens.

As Arabs, and as Muslims, they already distrusted the United States because of its support for Israel.
Unfortunately for everyone, a soldier who killed a prisoner was dismissed from the military but not jailed.
Jail is rarely an approriate punishment, even less so in this case, where the Iraqis would just have to take our word that the people in question are, in fact, locked up.

Not only is there an alarming apathy towards the horrifying spread of this phenomenon, but there is also a despicable aversion to calling it by its name.
To many Arabs, these massacres in Iraq evoke the memory of the Jenin refugee camp atrocities in 2002, when Israeli occupation forces bulldozed many homes and indiscriminately shot at any Palestinian who moved, leading to the death of tens and the injury of hundreds.
Whether the indiscriminate killings it committed in Jenin constituted a massacre or not was never allowed to be examined impartially by the UN.

 "Oh God, not again": Robert Smith on Killing An Arab
Inspired by the classic existentialist novel The Stranger, by Albert Camus, "Killing An Arab" is a short three-minute burst of metaphysical angst that is meant to question the meaning of existence.
Unfortunately, due to its title and similarly inflammable chorus ("I’m alive/I’m dead/I’m a stranger/Killing an Arab") the song has often been mistaken by non-English Lit.
"Killing An Arab" is not featured on The Cure’s new Greatest Hits release, a two disc set which features 18 classic Cure songs, side-by-side with new, acoustic recordings of the same songs.

 Suspect in October 2000 killing refused polygraph test 6 times - Haaretz - Israel News
A police officer suspected of killing an Israeli Arab during the October 2000 riots refused to turn up for a polygraph examination five times in a row.
The officer, who was the main suspect in Asleh's killing, was not compelled to undergo the lie detector test, and in the end, the file was closed.
PID officials said on Tuesday that they lacked any means of extracting confessions from officers, such as the authority to compel them to undergo polygraph tests  the results of which are in any event not admissible in court.
