Profiling Iraqi Americans

Reader comment on item: Monitoring Iraqis Living in the United States

Submitted by Andrea Hyatt (United States), Nov 23, 2002 at 01:51

Question Dr. Pipes.

Have the Iraqi Americans made any overtures to alleviate the American citizens' concerns regarding acts of terror in this country? Have any of them come forward to perhaps reveal that they know of some underground activities going on? Have any of them come forward in any community to offer to work with the citizens to help us understand who they are and what they really stand for and to show thier patriotism for this country.

I don't recall a groundswell of support or outrage when 9/11 occured, from any of the Arab factions in this country. Where are the so called moderates??

I live in Denver Colorado, not far from Boulder where the University of Colorado is and ye gads, is that a hotbed of hatred! There have been many opportunities for the Arab communities to speak out but we don't hear from them here.

The President of C.U., Betsy Hoffman won't sign the AJC petition because she says they don't sign petitions period.

Personally, I think there is alot of Arab money flowing into the school and they don't want to jeopardize all that revenue.

Thank You Mr. Pipes!
Sincerely, AHyatt
