Who is Debbie Almontaser?
August 15th, 2007

“I came to this country from Yemen, Arabia at the age of three. I remember it was a cold March night, and when I woke up the morning after we had arrived in upstate New York, I looked outside the window and saw, to my delight, that there was sugar everywhere, sugar covering the streets and all the trees. My father said “no, honey, it’s not sugar, it’s snow,” she wrote for The Gotham Gazette. “But not everything about America was as sweet. As I grew up, I faced great difficulty searching for my identity as an Arab-American.”

    We don’t have current contact information, however (as has been fairly widely reported) Ms. Almontaser is on the board of the Saba Association of American Yemenis who may be able to put you in touch with her.

    Elain Pasquini wants to contact Debbie. How nice. Let’s write some more anti-American trash from the WRMEA. By the way maybe you want to write about the Mosque on 5th Ave Brooklyn where the Imam recently told his congregants that one day they will have the chance to remake the U.S. into an Islamic state. Talk to him instead, the interview may be much more interesting.
