Amer sent me this email (I post with his permission): "I never tell you, like..., what "not to say", no? But I was surprised that you published that bullshit e-mail by the American student complaining about his predicament: had he been a Syrian in a legal bind or an Iraqi trying to cross in the 80s or an Arab trying to enter the US with the wrong name, he would have been treated much worse and made to wait, much much much longer. No one would have remonstrated no one for making the fucker wait, ask him if he knows what a "falka" means?"
