in response to reader comment: That's why you lost the war on terrorism

I'm 70 yoa, I've know a lot of Jews in my life, and years ago, it was a pleasure to know my neighbors from Lebanon. Bear in mind, this was a long time ago, and things have changed.

I can remember when the Lebanese came to the U.S. and obtained citizenship, and worked for a living like the rest of us, they were honorable people to know, but it doesn't work that way anymore for the majority I've met. We have Jordanians and Lebanese here in our country that lie telling everyone they are from Israel. The saddest thing to me is the Mexican population, whether it be legal or illegal work for a living, and send their money home to their families. You'll never see a Lebanese standing in line on pay day getting a money order to send home to their family. They come to our country, commit their crimes, with many sending it home to terrorist groups.

Bet Chawki isn't willing to tell us how much he and his brother sent to terrorists. Bet they're not willing to tell us how much they took from others in our country committing the same basic crimes they committed, and sent back to terrorist. I find it so sad that they come to our country, but they're not looking for a better life here, they looking for a way to commit crimes and make big bucks to send home. You'll never see one of them doing lawns, or construction work...they usually make enough to open their own business where they can continue cheating our government and it's citizens, and buying cigarettes wholesale at their convenience stores all over our nation, smuggling them where they can make the most profit for themselves.

I have no argument with Chawki, he committed his crimes, he served his time, and he's back in his own country where his ass belongs. I just wish I could fix it so his cohorts in crime were all back there with him. Maybe one day Haissam (SAM) Nashar, Georges N. El Asmar, and his brother Faouzi N. Asmar will be there keeping him company...that's just a few I want gone from my country, and I'm doing everything in my power to see it happens. ...I wish they were like their ancestors and were good people.
