This is a bit dated now, but there was actually a report
that someone in Pakistan had published in a newspaper
an offer of a reward to anyone who killed an American,
any American.

So an Australian dentist wrote the following to let
everyone know what an American is...  so they would
know when they found one (Good on ya, mate!!!!):

An American is English, or French, or Italian, Irish,
German, Spanish, Polish, Russian or Greek.

An American may also be Canadian, Mexican, African,
Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Australian,
Iranian, Asian, or Arab, or Pakistani, or Afghan.

An American may also be a Cherokee, Osage,
Blackfoot, Navajo, Apache, Seminole or one of the
many other tribes known as native Americans.

An American is Christian, or he could be Jewish, or
Buddhist, or Muslim.

In fact, there are more Muslims in America than in
Afghanistan. The only difference is that in America
they are free to worship as each of them chooses.

An American is also free to believe in no religion. For
that he will answer only to God, not to the government,
or to armed thugs claiming to speak for the
government and for God.

An American lives in the most prosperous land in the
history of the world.

The root of that prosperity can be found in the
Declaration of Independence, which recognizes the God
given right of each person to the pursuit of happiness.
To Kill An American?
Last revision 10/06/2014
An American is generous. Americans have helped out just
about every other nation in the world in their time of need.

When the Soviet army overran Afghanistan 20 years ago,
Americans came with arms and supplies to enable the
people to win back their country!

As of the morning of September 11, Americans had given
more than any other nation to the poor in Afghanistan.

Americans welcome the best, the best products, the best
books, the best music, the best food, the best athletes. But
they also welcome the least!

The national symbol of America, The Statue of Liberty,
welcomes your tired and your poor, the wretched refuse of
your teeming shores, the homeless, tempest tossed. These
in fact are the people who built America.

Some of them were working in the Twin Towers the
morning of September 11, 2001 earning a better life for
their families. I've been told that the World Trade Center
victims were from at least 30 other countries, cultures,
and first languages, including those that aided and abetted
the terrorists.

So you can try to kill an American if you must.

Hitler did.

So did General Tojo, and Stalin, and Mao Tse-Tung, and
every bloodthirsty tyrant in the history of the world.

But, in doing so you would just be killing yourself. Because
Americans are not a particular people from a particular
place. They are the embodiment of the human spirit of
freedom. Everyone who holds to that spirit, everywhere, is
an American.
