Everything I need to know about Islam, I learned on 9/11.
How sick is this ? This article makes it sound like they were the ones attacked.
Oh stop. Really.
In reading that one would think Muslims were terribly wronged on 9/11. What sick spin.

Bush and company as well as all the rest of the morons in W., D.C. facilitated this. So did Giuliani.
Heard on the radio the Biden will be at ground zero.
Worrying about a perceived problem not based in reality (in most cases) is

If you are a muslim and wonder how to observe September 11, 2001; think about taking time to talk to your family, friends and fellow mosque members about NOT joining the global jihad, about NOT joining radical islam, about REPORTING those who might harm you or your fellow Americans. You can
