The Rush to Blame Islam in Bombing
Regarding the editorial: ''Oklahoma City,'' April 21: It gives me and many others with Middle East origins solace to see that in the midst of the finger-pointing by the nation's news media -- directed toward the people of Islam and the Middle East -- that there are some news organizations, such as the Monitor, which cautioned the public before rushing to judgment.
The Monitor's view seems even more commendable when we still see a proclivity on the part of the nation's well-recognized reporters and journalists to create some form of Middle Eastern connection. Needless to say this aberrant fixation with the Middle East and Islam doesn't serve any useful purpose. It only fosters hate and dangerous reactions.
