More celebration of diversity

Five Americans detained in Pakistan denied Monday they planned to carry out terrorist attacks, as a court granted police two weeks to prepare terrorism charges against them, their defense lawyer said.

The young Muslim men from the Washington, D.C., area were arrested in early December in the eastern Pakistani city of Sargodha in a case that has spurred fears that Westerners are traveling to Pakistan to join militant groups. Pakistani police have said they plan to seek life sentences for the men under the country's anti-terrorism law.

The men, aged 19 to 25, denied they had ties with al-Qaeda or other militant groups during a court appearance Monday in Sargodha, said their attorney, Ameer Abdullah Rokri.

If our schools had taught these children of immigrants to celebrate America, rather than to celebrate their diversity, do you think they would be volunteering for anti American terrorist groups?
