What's wrong with looking Islamic? And what is "Islamic" anyway? I know a couple of people who are caucasian and subscribe to Islam. You'd never know if you met them on the street...

Unfortunately, with this wave of terrorism and extremists islamics doing bad things, looking like a islamic is not a good thing. For your question of what looks like, I could say that the beard and the physical characteristics of Rafa (eyebrows, nose, black hair) were remembering the stereotype the media makes of arabic people.
We just couldn't take the risk.
