Written by an Australian Dentist
To Kill an American
You probably missed this in the rush of news, but there was actually
a report that someone in Pakistan had published in a newspaper, an
offer of a reward to anyone who killed an American, any
American.

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, mate!!!!)

‘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 chooses.

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 happiness.

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 ..
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.

Please keep this going!
Pass this around the World .
Then pass it around again. It says it all, for all of us.
