An American man was indicted Wednesday on charges he left threatening messages at an Arab political organization during escalated fighting between Israel and Hizbullah last year. Patrick Syring left phone and e-mail messages last summer with the Arab American Institute saying, "The only good Lebanese is a dead Lebanese. The only good Arab is a dead Arab," federal prosecutors said. At the time, Israel was bombing targets in Lebanon while Hizbullah was firing rockets into northern Israel. James Zogby, the founder of the Arab American Institute, criticized the US for not doing enough to protect US citizens visiting family members in Lebanon. Syring, in expletive-laced messages, accused Zogby of being anti-Semitic.
