SOUTH CHARLESTON -- At the Islamic Center in South Charleston, Imam Ehteshamul Haque spent his Thursday afternoon answering phones and preparing the mosque for services.
Haque was in India during Sept. 11, but in his six years in America, he's both seen his share of suspicion and has been helping to educate about Islam.
"Our practices of Islam day and night are extremely peaceful," said Haque.
In a 2009 Gallup poll, 43 percent of Americans admitted to at least "a little" prejudice toward Muslims.
"I believe if you study any religion you will find this problem: The mainstream is different. The minority is there and believes something totally different," said Haque.
Following September 11th, the Islamic Center braced for vandalism, but according to Haque, instead found flowers and messages of solidarity.
"Every mosque and every organization has clear ... statements condemning these extreme views," said Haque.
The Islamic Center is working with a Charleston church for a September 11th event that will focus on understanding.

I read most of the book before 9/11. There is no ‘hiding’ it. They want my friends and familiy dead, as per the book, I don’t want that.
You didn’t condemn the Muslims who did 9-11 when it happened and still haven’t.
When they are willing to assimilate, I MIGHT believe them.
An attitude change towards Islam and its true adherents would be nothing less than an attempt at deception. The Koran makes it clear that Islam is not a religion of peace. Jihad is real, unrelenting, and devious.
You know what you can do with that Trojan mosque?...
This is typical taquiya. Islam is a theocratic government. Not a religion.
Assimilate... OR go home and stay there
For those moderately well informed, the image of Muslims doesn’t come from 9/11, but from 13 centuries of history. 9/11 just provided further confirmation.
Nearly as credible as Barack’s 9/8 speech. Their religion supports lies to the infidels and also killing them.
No assimilation, no sale. I’m still waiting for the big rally at the mosque that condemns Sharia law and extremists in America. I expect they will be waiting a thousand years from now as well.
I do understand. 17,000 acts of terrorism world wide since 9/11 by islam. What’s there not to understand.
Treat every one of them with suspicion. SJS can strike at any time.
And here are some of the latest:
There’s too much evidence that Islam is incompatible with western, free civilization, and that there are millions of Muslims who want to see the downfall of the west and its replacement by a world-wide caliphate. I see no evidence that “moderate” Muslims are standing up to the Islamofascists.
Everything I ever need to know about Islam I learned on 9/11.
Islam is a cult of slavery, oppression and murder. There is no such thing as slavery, oppression and murder in moderation.
If our forefathers had any incling their ancestors would be so stupid and morally bankrupt as to allow Islam to gain a foothold on American soil, they would have put a ban on it in the preamble to the Declaration of Independence.
Until you get in the majority, then you murder Christians and force them to convert, or keep them as slaves. The Islamic mentality has never evolved beyond the Dark Ages. It is savage and brutish and it plummets any region where it dominates into barbarity.
Even if these Islamists and Islamophiles apologized for 9/11, it wouldn’t be worth but a grain of sand in the ARabian desert given Muslim’s and their apologists have yet to address the murder, assaults, and all sharia compliant mayhem imposed on humanity since Muhammads hijrah, up to and including Beslan, Madrid, 7/7 UK, USS Cole, first World Trade Center Bombing, Pan Am Lockarbie, Fort Hood, etc. etc. ad infinitum.
There isn’t enough time and treasure for Muslims to seek forgiveness for the harm they’ve caused - even if all of Islamdom got on their hands and knees to beg forgiveness and offer restitution for all the harm imposed on civilization since Mohammad’s evil defiled humanity.
Islam delende est.
It’s been 10 years. They should’ve worked harder.
Everything I needed to know about islam was learned on the morning of September 11, 2001.
These murderous bastards should not even be allowed in the US.
Both Islam and Sharia need to be outlawed as being both treasonous and seditious.
Sharia is a direct fierce affront and challenger to our constitution. It role is to supplant and replace whatever government that exists where it takes root. Its goal is to make sharia supreme over all governments, globally.
We need anti sharia and islam laws. It nees to be outlawed.
Do you really think that the fathers of this country wanted the freedom, rights and liberties eroded and destroyed by a foreign constitution?
Sharia (and Islam) is a invasive, cancerous growth that will kill the host.
It’s been 10 years and NO ONE affilitated with the religion of pieces has come out to denounce 9/11.
I don’t any patience with those people.
They use our culture of acceptance and religious freedoms to hide their loyalties.
AMEN!— The beguiled will defend Satan or whatever reflection of their Father holds control over them. One need not study the Alkoran to know it is contrary to our system. It is a “religion of Peace” only to those who have submitted to the evil one.Study of the history of Islam is profitable For it tears off the veil and shows the world a system of conquest-forced submission,destruction, even death.Those who attempt to
reconcile our ways to Islam will be destroyed by Islam.And many innocent will die because of the beguiling.
Fact: Big Sis says Muslim Americans are trying to torch off car bombs in major cities as I type this.
How stupid do they think we are.
If they want us to accept them and tolerate them, they should rebuke and eliminate their militants. They haven’t and won’t. Everytime I see one, I shudder. Is they want to dress like and act like they are in the 7th century, they shouldn’t use cell phones and drive cars. Don’t need them here.
That's interesting. How come no one ever hears about these "clear statements"?
Hand these "clear statements" off to the newspapers. If they won't write a story about it, run an add featuring these "clear statements". I'm sure you could even manage to get some folks on the talks shows to discuss these "clear statements".
But no. The only "clear statement" we have is the claim that there are "clear statements".
Sometimes stereotypes are correct.
Actions speak louder than words.
I learned everything I needed to know about islam on 9/11.
When muslins start rebuking the “religion” that calls for the deaths of all non-muslims — which includes me, my family, and all my friends — I might start listening.
Muslims Work to Separate Image From 9/11 Stereotypes.
Stop believing in a religion that is spread by the sword.
Jesus is Lord!!!
If they discovered that a virus affected the mind so that infected people committed honor killings, beheadings, clitorectomies on little girls, kill young women for pursuing an education, turn them into walking bombs and cause them to fly planes into buildings, there world be a worldwide search for a cure and every baby on the planet would be inoculated with vaccines to eradicate it.
“Muslims work to separate image from 9-11...”
Yes, of course, because EVERYONE knows it was Irish Catholic grandmoms who flew those aircraft into the WTC, while screaming “Erin go Bragh!”...
Well, they can work to separate it all they want.
But they OWN it, forever.
And the picture burned into my brain, other than MY countrymen leaping to their deaths, is of THEIR people cheering and celebrating in the streets, and that fat pig of a Palistinian woman doing the tongue warble in absolute celebratory glee at the deaths of MY people - innocent folks who were doing nothing more than trying to go to work to earn a living.
Yeah...they can try to separate it all they want. But THEY did it - their people, their co-islamists, their sick, satanic religion, and their lunatic brethern OWN it.
And while we’re there - those socialist/liberal buttwipes who let these b*stards into the country, and who knew they were here illegally, and who did nothing to stop them, and then who made excuses and remonstations at US about profiling and tolerance and all that other multiculti bullsh*t bear responsibility for it too.
They set up the circumstances for it to happen. We can put the blame for it squarely at their feet as well.
Over 3000 innocent people died that day because of a combination of political correctness, liberal insanity, Islamic terrorism, and pure, blind hatred.
We need to NEVER FORGET that - who they are, why they’re here, and what they ultimately want to do.
Paul Harvey might second that. I haven't found it as a recorded quote, but I remember hearing him say that today's tribal Muslim Arab/Persian/Turk is neither ready for nor capable of modern, peaceable, representative government.
And because of that, when you look all throughout the Muslim world, what you see everywhere is peace, tolerance, prosperity and enlightenment.
The good ol’ Religion of Peace.
Extremely peaceful......Sharia Law
A total non-match
There are no "Stereotypes"; what we saw on 9/11 is all that Islam and Mohammed have to offer all us "infidels".
"Our practices of Islam day and night are extremely peaceful," said Haque."... This statement is a LIE, and under Taquia, it is perfectly legal for Muslims to LIE to infidels.
The Lord Jesus Christ LOVES you, Mohammed and Islam want you DEAD!
According to Mohammed and Islam, EVERYONE who does not believe that "Allah" is god, or that Mohamed is his "prophet" is an "infidel".
According to Mohammed and Islam, all us "infidels" have only one of THREE choices:
1) We can convert to Islam by choice or by "force" = "convert or you get a sword to the throat or a bullet to the head".
Oh, you don't like "choice number one", then you get a second choice under Islam:
2) You can become a SLAVE; owned by Islamic "masters" and subject to Shariah law (you know, that wonderful system of dehumanizing, barbaric, 7th century "law" where they cut off hands, kill women because they have disgraced themselves by allowing themselves to be raped, stoning, beheading, you know all that fun stuff).
Ok, you don't like "choice number two" either, then Islam gives you just one more third and final "choice":
3) You can DIE (We will KILL YOU) for your infidel "faith" or lack thereof.
The above three "choices" are the ONLY choices Islam offers all us infidels: Conversion, Enslavement or Death.
There are no "Muslim stereotypes", only the TRUTH about the blood thirsty so-called "prophet" Mohammed, and Islam, his false "religion" bent upon conquest and subjugation of the entire world through, Jihad.
Someone has aptly said: "All I need to know about Muslims and Islam, I learned on September 11, 2001.
"We were shocked to see how northern VA had changed since we lived there. We stayed at a hotel in Tyson's Corner about a mile from where we used to live in Falls Church. It was a Saturday evening and we went out to walk around since we had been in the car all day. We came back in a rear door to the hotel where the conference rooms are located and you will never believe what we happened upon. It was a huge meeting of Muslim men associated with the Imam Al-Kisai and the Institute of America. They were praying and we really got some glaring stares.
I had read that there were Madrasas in Falls Church, VA but I never realized that it was happening in the neighborhood where we lived. I felt that I sensed evil while we were there. I dont know if that was in my mind or a reality, but it was a strange feeling."
A stereotype is that blacks like watermelon and fried chicken.Islam is not a stereotype;it’s the truth.
My first day of class learning about Islam came on September 11, 2001.
Islam is from the devil, SATAN himself.
