In response to your email about a Middle Eastern condemnation for the
terrorist acts in New York City.
I speak for my self as an Arab American who felt terribly bad for what
happened in New York City on September 11, and what happens to my country
(U.S.A.) everyday, but the one thing that worried me the most, is how we are
perceived as Arab Americans, we are treated as the bad Arabs then Americans,
we are looked at the same way people looked at the blacks, we are looked at
the same way people looked at the American Japanese when the Japanese Air
Force bombed Pearl Harbor, we are always looked as if we came from hell.
As an American, I didn't forget what happened when Japan bombed Pearl
Harbor, when the Israeli Occupation army bombed the U.S.S. Liberty, and when
Timothy McVeigh blew up the Oklahoma Federal building, and many more things
that happened to us.
I didn't forget the reasons behind all of that. For every action there is a
reaction, what happened in New York, was a clear terrorist act on my land,
and I condemn it, but I know there must be a reason why these people did
what they did to us.
We need as Americans to stop fooling ourselves and say, these acts are
attacks on Democracy, what Democracy are we talking about, the one sided
politics that our government have been involved in for the past 55 years.
There are many countries in the world that see how one sided our government
are, but we still ignore to listen, and they all say that we have a very
ignorant government, which I agree with.
What did Israel do to us? Other than bring unrest and wars to the rest of
the world? The American Policy alienated many countries to please Israel.
The are allot of people here in the U.S. that are just as bad as Osama Bin
Laden and the Taliban, look at Pat Robertson, and his clan, he calls himself
gods man, and Christian, he seems to want to bring all the Russian Jews to
America, and Palestine, but he forgot about the under privileged Christian
blacks in America, and the many Muslims that have been suffering the brutal
occupation of Israel of their Home land.
No one came and blamed the Christians for what Hitler did in Europe, after
Timothy McVeigh bombed the Oklahoma Federal building, people raced to blame
I'm sick of our media calling Osama Bin Laden a Muslim Fundamentalist, first
of all, none of what he does if Muslim like, when one person does bad,
he/she does bad for him/her self.
If you are an educated person, please judge people based on their character,
not on what one bad person did.
No one blamed you for what Hitler did, or Timothy McVeigh, of Ted Bundy, or
Jeffrey Damer, etc...
