    US President George Bush has welcomed solidarity from ethnic Greeks in America following terrorist attacks in New York and Washington in the autumn.

    "Thank you for writing about the acts of war committed against the United States on September 11," Bush said in a letter earlier this month to Ted Spyropoulos, president of the Chicago-based Hellenic American National Council.

    He noted that the US remained strong and united in the face of the onslaught, a beacon of freedom and opportunity to the rest of the world.

    "Our government continues to serve the American people. Our intelligence, military and law enforcement communities are working non-stop to find those responsible for these attacks," Bush said.

    He also underlined that Arab and Moslem American citizens backed the US, and should be treated with dignity and respect.

    "Americans of every creed, ethnicity and national origin must unite against our common enemies," the president said in the letter.

    He also urged the public to use web sites like in order to join the relief effort.
