Yesterday's article quoted Mr. Oren as saying that the nomads had "come up with the extraordinary notion" of a single God. Today's article has Mr. Oren saying (paraphrased, but not quoted) that the "nomads...first found belief in one God." Much more respectful, no doubt about it. Still, I have to wonder why phrases such as "God revealed Himself to the nomads" were missing from the ambassador's speech? Of course, that's only what I learned as a child--and may no longer be PC.
