      Like pointed out in previous posts discrimination on such a big scale doesn't only limit itself to the United States. I might be good if Awad kept in communication with other countries as well. I wouldn't be surprised if research on certain topic has already been done. It would also be symbolic a good thing to do. Diiferent kind of nationalists teaming up to identify and fight the root cause.

      What Ms. Awad is doing is a good thing, and it may help a lot of people. Discrimination against Arab-Americans occurred before 911 too, I'm sure. Discrimination has occurred to every new ethnic group that has ever entered the United States. The Irish, the Italians, the Germans, the Vietnamese after the fall of Saigon. Native Americans killed native Americans for their land, long before the Americans came. Discrimination and prejudice is part of human nature. It can be overcome, but you have to be sensitive and aware of it. Hopefully, what Ms. Awad is doing will help that cause.
