Error - June 1968 was the real beginning.

Reader comment on item: "Death to America"

Submitted by Tom (United States), Jul 10, 2007 at 15:31

An Islamic (Palestinian) terrorist, Sirhan Sirhan, murdered Robert F Kennedy in June 1968. Kennedy is the first American to be killed by an Islamic terrorist and therefore the beginning of the Islamic war on America. He was not just an American citizen, he was the Democratic front runner for the elections in November.

I would not have voted for Kennedy had he lived until the election, but he was still an American.

No, Sirhan Sirhan is a Christian, not a Muslim.
