Arab Voices Need to Be Heard
By Ramah Kudaimi
December 08, 2005

Response to Chicago Tribune's "Arabs-From Fascination to Hatred to Tolerance"

The Arab voices included in the December 8th Metro section are a great start to inviting readings to engage with the people who are talked about so much yet rarely heard from (“Arabs-from fascination to hatred to tolerance”).

During a time when there are government officials calling for discrimination against Arabs, efforts such as these are essential to prove once and for all that the overwhelming majority of Arabs living in the United States have the same goal as their neighbors: to lead successful lives in a county which from inception has tried its best to uphold the principles of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
