Virginia men in the form of George Washington severed America`s link with Great Britain, and in the form of Robert E. Lee almost severed the link
between the South and the North. Now, according to CNN, a "Virginia man" intended to sever George W. Bush from America. [Would-be Bush assasin could face life CNN.com November 23 2005]
Watch out for this terminological outrage, noted
by my brother in February, over the next few days. Abu Ali`s only resemblence to Robert E. Lee was in wearing a beard (and that has the wrong color).
To be fair to CNN, they did subsequently in their account describe Abu Ali as "Arab-American".
So why not do that from the start?
A good way of avoiding these problems, of course, is not to have Muslim/Arab immigrants in the first place.Stephen Steinlight
