Arab-Americans' sense of history

Regarding the opinion-page column "Lebanon Through Ramzi's Eyes," Aug. 2: The nine-year-old boy's rediscovery of Lebanon as his homeland reminds me again of the exquisite sense of history and proportion held by so many Arab-Americans. In a country which has long maligned the Arab character, immigrants from the Middle East continue to display patience and tolerance toward bigots in the US and toward violent factions in their homelands.Arab-Americans are a special people whose vision is often ignored in the frenzy of nationalism which plagues both sides.
