On November 3, 2002 The Houston Chronicle reported that "former President George Bush on Saturday condemned intolerance and stereotyping that have hurt Arab-American families in the wake of the terrorist attacks... at the... Inter-Continental Hotel as part of the Arab-American Cultural and Community Center's annual gala. Bush said he wanted to use the opportunity to 'condemn intolerance (and) condemn the stereotyping that has hurt so many American families.' Bush mentioned the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing to exemplify how many Americans - including the media - were quick to blame those of the Islamic faith."
