You probably missed it in the rush of news recently, 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 the following to let everyone know what an American is… so they would know when they found one. (Good on ya, 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 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.

When the Soviet army overran Afghanistan 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, the best products, the best books, the best music, the best food, the best athletes. 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. I've been told that the World Trade Center victims were from at least 30 other 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 every bloodthirsty tyrant in the history of 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.


Thanks for bringing this piece to our attention. It's excellent.

In an effort to return the favor, I would like to recommend the Laurie Roth website and radio program (she is somewhat like a female Michael Savage). In particular I think you would find her archived interviews very interesting. I believe the ones with Ibrahim Abdallah and Walid Shoebat are exceptionally important since both are former Palestinian Muslim terrorists who have become Christians and are now trying to warn us naive Americans about the very real danger/threat we face from this so-called religion.

And then you could always read Oriana Fallaci's book The Rage and the Pride on the same subject matter (she has a new book coming out in November called The Force of Reason). I also recommend Jacques Ellul's The Betrayal of the West (he was one of the greatest minds and polymaths of all time), Bat Ye'or's Eurabia, Serge Trifkovic's The Sword of the Prophet, anything by Robert Spencer & Daniel Pipes.

Craig Winn's books and WEBSITE are excellent as well.

That should keep you busy for a while!

Thanks again and keep up the good work.
