Emanuel's apology was right thing to do
Chicago Sun Times
November 18, 2008

http://www.suntimes.com/news/commentary/letters/1284603,CST-EDT-vox18.article

By Ahmed Rehab

Feature 261 I think I speak for a good chunk of Chicagoland's large Muslim community when I applaud Rahm Emanuel for doing the right thing by apologizing for his father's disparaging comments about Arabs. I think most of us could not care less what views his father holds but wondered how much of those views his son shared, especially now that he is going to be in a pivotal position as a gatekeeper to the next president. Emanuel laid much of our concerns to rest when he went beyond a formal apology and actually reaffirmed his own values of inclusiveness and equal opportunity. Our hope in change is rekindled.
