No, it is not a joke.
The seventh episode of The Simpsons' season 20 stars a Jordanian family whose son, Bashir, is just the new friend of Bart in school.
The most amazing thing is that the episode explitely mentions Jordan University of Science and Technology (My university) during the dinner with the Jordanian family, as the Jordanian couple met when they were studying at Jordan University of Science and Technology.
The episode gives a bright picture of the Muslim family, accused by Homer to be involved with a terrorist plot to destroy Springfield Mall.
At the beginning of the episode there are also parodies of Apple (the 'Mapple' store) as well as its CEO Steve Jobs (Steve Mobs).
