summer mcdonald is right

From McDonald’s article in the Huffington Post entitled “Birth Certificate One Week, Death Certificate the Next”…..

“Because I avoid watching network and cable news, I heard about the killing of Osama Bin Laden via Twitter, and frankly, I didn’t stay on Twitter long. The jokes being shared were just too much for me. I just don’t find news reports of the violent death of anyone a reason to celebrate and/or joke. Seriously, folks, this is why they hate us.”

Seriously, there is a reason why they hate us and it has nothing to do with freedom, freedom fries, or our lifestyle (albeit sometimes decadent and wasteful). Some of our actions are a bit blood-thirsty -esque, and they didn’t begin or end with Osama, and they impact people. Yes, they  even impact people in the Arab world.

On 9/11, over 3,000 men and women were murdered. Since 9/11, over a million Arabs have been killed. Over 4,000 of our U.S. servicemen and women have been killed. If you do the math, that’s around 7,000 American deaths to over a million Arab deaths. And you don’t think that’s reason enough to be upset, or even harbor hate?

McDonald’s full article is short but definitely worth the read.
