An Australian Dentist Defends America after a Pakistani puts add in paper offering a rewad for killing Americans

Sandy’s Spot has great post about an Australian dentist. It seems a Pakistani placed add in the newspapers offering a reward for killing Americans.
“So an Australian dentist wrote an editorial the following day to let everyone
know what an American is. So they would know when they found one. (Good one,
“An American is English, or French, or Italian, Irish, German, Spanish,
Polish, Russian or Greek. An American may also be Canadian, Mexican, African,
Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Australian, Iranian, Asian, or Arab, or
Pakistani or Afghan.
An American may also be a Comanche, Cherokee, Osage, Blackfoot, Navaho,
Apache, Seminole or one of the many other tribes known as Native Americans.
An American is Christian, or he could be Jewish, or Buddhist, or Muslim.
In fact, there are more Muslims in America than in Afghanistan. The only
difference is that in America they are free to worship as each of them
An American is also free to believe in no religion. For that he will answer
only to God, not to the government, or to armed thugs claiming to speak for
the government and for God.

An American lives in the most prosperous land in the history of the world.
The root of that prosperity can be found in the Declaration of Independence,
which recognizes the God given right of each person to the pursuit of

An American is generous. Americans have helped out just about every other
nation in the world in their time of need, never asking a thing in return.
When Afghanistan was over-run by the Soviet army 20 years ago, Americans came
with arms and supplies to enable the people to win back their country!
As of the morning of September 11, Americans had given more than any other
nation to the poor in Afghanistan. Americans welcome the best of
everything…the best products, the best books, the best music, the best food,
the best services. But they also welcome the least.

The national symbol of America, the Statue of Liberty, welcomes your tired and
your poor, the wretched refuse of your teeming shores, the homeless, tempest
tossed. These in fact are the people who built America.
Some of them were working in the Twin Towers the morning of September 11, 2001
earning a better life for their families. It’s been told that the World Trade
Center victims were from at least 30 different countries, cultures, and first
languages, including those that aided and abetted the terrorists.

So you can try to kill an American if you must. Hitler did. So did General
Tojo, and Stalin, and Mao Tse-Tung, and other blood-thirsty tyrants in the
world. But, in doing so you would just be killing yourself, because Americans
are not a particular people from a particular place. They are the embodiment
of the human spirit of freedom. Everyone who holds to that spirit, everywhere,
is an American.

There is nothing I can add to this except to say I have written this same thing myself, just not nearly as eloquently. Thank you Mr. Dentist in America, I mean Australia!

Thanks to Assorted Babble.
