    “We are still building an Islamic museum and sanctuary,” says the shady developer behind the Ground Zero Mosque scheme, Sharif El-Gamal. An Islamic sanctuary is a mosque. The article adds: “An Islamic museum ‘is just as much of an insult,’ Pamela Geller, a blogger and one of the center’s most vocal opponents, wrote in an email. ‘It will be like having a museum touting the glories of the Japanese Empire at Pearl Harbor.’” This is what I actually told the New York Times: “The 16-story mosque that El-Gamal initially planned to build there has not been built. Our efforts in...

    President Obama and Hillary Clinton aren’t the only ones having trouble identifying the religion of certain Middle Eastern descended terrorists. At least one Muslim group wants the words “Islamic terrorists” entirely scrubbed from a new Owego, NY 9-11 memorial created to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the attack. The Islamic Organization of Southern Tier, a New York state based Muslim activist group, told KTRK-TV that the words unfairly paint all Muslims with the same brush. Believing the “inflammatory” language could lead to anti-Muslim violence, the group would like the word “Islamic” scrubbed entirely, or even replaced with the words “Al...

    Muslims want the truth scrubbed from 9/11 in accordance with Islamic law — ‘do not offend or criticize Islam’, no matter how high the body count, no matter how gruesome the slaughter in the cause of Allah. In the last letters of all 9/11 Muslim terrorists, they invoked Allah over 90 times. Why are Muslims so keen to scrub the motive, the truth, from history? Why aren’t Muslims working to expunge and scrub the violent commands and hatred from Islam. Instead they shield, protect and impose it. Invoking the big lie, “fear of reprisals” and “islamophobia” – Muslims say...
  • A 9/11 Memorial’s Uncertain Future (Sycamore root "Harbinger" sculpture)

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | 8/17/15 | Melanie Grayce West
    The troubles for the “Trinity Root” began with an inquiry about touching up the sculpture’s patina. (snip) But according to Mr. Tobin and his manager, Kathleen Rogers, the conversation about patina opened a larger discussion about the sculpture’s placement: Now, they fear it will be moved or “just disappear,” said Ms. Rogers. (snip) Ms. Rogers is unconvinced. “There’s something in the works for them to find a way to get rid of it,” she said. “Trinity Root” was inspired by the story of a massive sycamore tree that shielded—and some say helped to save—the nearby St. Paul’s Chapel from the...

    Officials at the National September 11 Memorial Museum in Manhattan said on Monday that one of their security guards should not have stopped a North Carolina middle school choir from singing the national anthem on the plaza last week. “The guard did not respond appropriately,” Kaylee Skaar, a museum spokeswoman, said. “We are working with our security staff to ensure that this does not happen again with future student performances.” About 50 students from Waynesville Middle School in western North Carolina were at the memorial on Wednesday and had just started singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” when a guard told them...

    It's deja vu again: A Wisconsin woman visiting the 9/11 Memorial yesterday was arrested after a security guard screening her bag spotted a gun in the purse. Ursula Jerry, 41, had a .380-caliber semi-automatic Kel-Tec gun in her purse. The Wall Street Journal reports, "The weapon had two rounds in the magazine-none were in the chamber, the official said." Jerry also told cops, "I travel with this from home on Amtrak to New York City. I don’t mean harm to anyone." Jerry has a permit for the gun in Wisconsin, but not NYC. Responsible gun owners would know that New...

    Tourists visiting the 9/11 Memorial Museum in New York City can read its brochures in 10 different languages – but Arabic is not one of them. Nor will it be any time soon. “Nine languages are spoken by over 97 percent of our visitors: English, Spanish, German, French, Portuguese, Mandarin, Italian, Japanese and Russian,” a representative from the memorial told the New York Post. The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, claiming Arabic is the world’s fourth-most-spoken language, is sending letters to memorial coordinators demanding answers on why the language is not included. But it appears that the Arabic community is looking for...

    Last week at more than 200 colleges and high schools across the nation, students came together to arrange memorials on campus featuring thousands of flags representing each victim of Islamic terrorism on that date. Who could find that gesture offensive? Five student protesters at Middlebury College in Vermont, brainwashed by multiculturalist nonsense, that’s who. “The 9/11: Never Forget Project has been an annual nonpartisan event at Middlebury College for the past ten years,” writes Hillary Cherry, Program Officer of Public Relations there. The flags have been posted at Middlebury annually in a joint effort between the College Republicans and Democrats....

    Before construction began on the World Trade Center in the 1960s, a vibrant Arab-American community lived and worked in the shadow of what would become the Twin Towers, the two New York skyscrapers destroyed in the 9/11 attacks. As Wednesday's 12th anniversary of the attacks draws near, local historians are asking the September 11 Memorial Museum to include a reference to the neighborhood, known for more than 50 years as "Little Syria," in its permanent exhibit.
