I am not sure how do you define an American but trust me I am as authentic as they can come. And if you ever lived in America, there is nothing called first or second generation immigrants, we are all Americans including my originally Jewish fellow citizens who arrived a few years from Israel. This is the USA sir, not Israel whether you arrived yesterday or your ancestors arrived on the May Flower, whether you are a Jew, a Christian or a Muslim we are equal citizens before the law. Did you know that Abraham himself was an immigrant not a native of the Land!!!!
