New York Jets rookie OL Oday Aboushi, one of the few Palestinian-Americans to play in the NFL, defended himself Friday, July 12, against a website's article that called him a "Muslim extremist." Aboushi was angered by the story, published Tuesday by FrontPage Magazine, as well other comments in response to the piece. "It is upsetting to see people try and tarnish my reputation without even knowing me," he said in a statement issued by the team. "But I appreciate all the support I have been getting from people of all backgrounds across the city and country."
