New York Times headline: Terrorist attacks by a native son roil Denmark

The assassin, Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein, who killed two people in Copenhagen yesterday--including one man who attended a free speech seminar where an artist who drew a Muhammad cartoon--as well as a Jewish man guarding a synagogue, was described tonight in a New York Times headline as "a native son of Denmark."

Yes, he was born in Denmark. But culturally he was an alien. As is usually the case, the Old Gray Lady is wrong.

EXACTLY RIGHT! Describing him as a native son is BS designed to obscure the truth: The West is under attack by islamism

Omar Abdel Hamid is obviously an ancient Viking name, LOL

If he isn't a native son of Denmark, would that make Teddy(born-in-communist-Cuba-raised-socialist-Canada) Cruz?

Cruz was born in Alberta, his mother was a US citizen. Ted was raised in Texas.

So NOT a natural-born citizen.
