Middle Eastern stereotypes

I'm looking for movies, stand-up comedy, or propaganda dealing with Middle Easterners and/or Muslims in America and their stereotypes. It can be serious or humorous. Unfortunately, Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World hasn't been released yet, otherwise that would be perfect. There's also Crash, but I don't think it's that accurate.

So far the only other thing I know of is Mad TV's "Depressed Persian Tow Truck Man" which is really awful and I wish it didn't exist.

Also, I'm interested in what Middle Eastern stereotypes you believe are true, at least to some extent? Some examples would be that they're all terrorists, they have close relations with their camels and goats, they're all Muslims and often "go jihad."
