Ahmed Sees an Elevator for the First Time

Nothing explains the culture clash between Islam and Western Civilization better than when Muslims are exposed to modern American society for the first time:
Shortly after a family of Syrian refugees arrived in America, they were taken to a large mall where they were astonished by the sight of so much luxury and advanced technology. While his wife was in a nearby dress shop, Ahmed and his fifteen-year-old boy were riveted in front of these two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and then slide back together again.
The boy asked, "What is this Father?"
Ahmed, not knowing anything about elevators, responded, "Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life, I don't know what it is nor what it does."
While the boy and his father were watching in amazement, an old woman in a wheel chair came up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened, and the old lady rolled in between them into a small room. The walls closed and Ahmed and his son watched the small numbers above the walls light up sequentially.
They continued to watch until it reached the last number… and then the numbers began to descend in the reverse order.
Finally the walls opened up again revealing a gorgeous 24-year-old blond with sexy black boots, white skirt and a netted, see-through, powder blue top.
The father, not taking his eyes off the young woman, said quietly to his son: "Go get your Mother."
