Ken Layne gets some nasty hate mail from Achmed or Ahmad or Larry or someone. Ken replies with his usual elegance:
Ahmad, buddy, the sad thing for you is that I’m exactly the kind of liberal American who tended to side with the Palestinian cause, as did many liberal American Jews I know. (Sometimes they even shared their Muslim-Blood Cupcakes with me.) But you people made a very serious mistake: you thought Americans (and Israeli doves) would be charmed by your suicide bombers.
Now if someone could just help me find the first post-9/11 reference to “the American street.”
