Sirhan a Christian: Assassination of Bobby Kennedy

Reader comment on item: Faces of American Islam[: Muslim Immigrants]

Submitted by Amos Donohue (Canada), Aug 15, 2002 at 10:17

In your list of terrorist actions by Muslims in the USA - would the assassination of Robert Kennedy by Sirhan Sirhan in 1968 not also be a major signpost? I assume he was a Muslim immigrant - possibly a Palestinian.

Daniel Pipes replies:

Sirhan Bishara Sirhan, born March 19, 1944, in Jerusalem, is a Christian, not a Muslim.
