“The Islamic Organization of the Southern Tier worries the wording could encourage hatred toward Muslims living in the area, painting all Muslims with the same brush.”
This is an oft-used and tired talking point. How does identifying the motivating ideology of the 9/11 attackers paint all Muslims with the same brush? Does referring to the Italian mafia amount to calling all Italians mafiosi? Does referring to German Nazis mean that one is calling all Germans National Socialists?
This is just an attempt to deflect attention away from the ideology of the 9/11 hijackers, and to keep people ignorant and complacent regarding the fact that those hijackers were working from Islamic principles that are embedded within the Islamic texts that are read and studied and taught by the Islamic Organization of the Southern Tier.
OWEGO, N.Y. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) – A 9/11 memorial monument is causing controversy in a small town in southern New York state.
A group has taken issue with the writing, which calls the perpetrators Islamic terrorists.
The Islamic Organization of the Southern Tier worries the wording could encourage hatred toward Muslims living in the area, painting all Muslims with the same brush….
The Islamic group has asked that the monument just read, “terrorists” or even “Al-Qaeda terrorists.”
