Dear Palestinian Bomber

This isn’t good.

Sami Habbas was sifting through his stack of mail when he noticed a credit-card offer addressed to “Palestinian Bomber.”

The stunned Palestinian-American opened the letter that began with the salutation, “Dear Palestinian Bomber.”…

Habbas telephoned JPMorgan Chase & Co., which sent the solicitation, on the company’s toll-free number, provided his ZIP code and invitation number from the form and two operators addressed him the same way: “Yes, Mr. Bomber, what can we do for you?”

Habbas, 54, a grocer who has lived in the United States since he was 3 and has served in the U.S. Army, said he was shocked.

“It’s very upsetting,” he said. “I’m not what they are saying, a Palestinian bomber. That’s uncalled for. I have a name. My name is Sami Habbas.”
