Killing an Arab" is the first single by The Cure. It was recorded at the same time as their first LP in the UK, Three Imaginary Boys (1979), but not included on the album. However, it was included on the band's first US album, Boys Don't Cry (1980). This song lends two of its lines to the titles of one of The Cure's compilation albums, Standing on a Beach, and to its CD/video counterpart Staring at the Sea.
Killing An Arab was the first single released by The Cure. It was inspired by the pivotal moment in the 1942 novel The Stranger where the protagonist shoots his friends mistress' brother, a man identified in the book only as ‘the Arab’. It is the apathy of the main character that is the focus of this song. The song has been controversial since 1979, when a college asked the band not to perform it as it sounded racist. In 1986, its inclusion on the band’s singles collection Standing On A Beach was protested by the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee.
