can financing of terrorism as a
conspiracy to defame patriotic
Arab-Americans. Sorry fellas, but
if you are serious about stopping
terrorism then you support laws

It is unfortunate that Arab-
Americans are stigmatized be-
cause of the actions of people with
a common origin. But it would
not be a problem if terrorist acts
were not regularly committed
against Jews and no one from the

Middle Eastern terrorists, but
Americans have been victims on
the Achille Lauro, Pan Am 103,
the Beirut Embassy and Marine
barracks, the World Trade Cen-

Lebanon and a host of other
atrocities. Tough action is need-
ed to ensure Americans never
have to endure the scenes of Ok-
lahoma City ever again.
