To Kill an American

*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,
Arab, 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

**An American is generous.. Americans have helped out just about every other

**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

*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. **

God Bless
