Muslim victims of September 11th 2001

This is something which has never been mentioned in the Western media. There were at least 62 Muslims who died during the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York. Despite this often overlooked fact, Muslims are often disparaged and their religion demonised and held “responsible” for this tragedy. That there were Muslims who had lost their lives in this tragedy clearly shows that such actions are the work of an extremist few, and has nothing to do with the religion of Islam.

    While sensible Americans do not blame the religion of Islam for the attacks on our country, the non-radical Muslims, the normal Muslim citizens have remained quiet as a whole. The religious leaders in the Muslim faith should have been, and still should be, the first and the loudest critics of the attacks. And do not slander everyone who opposes a mosque, literally in the shadows of where the Twin Towers fell, as “Islamophobes”; this discredits you. If you seek understanding, then BE understanding. You are free to build your house of worship (stop trying to disguise it as a “community center”) and to practice your faith; just be compassionate and understanding enough to do it outside of the immediate area of the single most effective terrorist strike against our country. Just like most important values that span ALL customs, religions, and groups of people, one must demonstrate their ability to exhibit a trait one expects of others. To be loved, you must love; to be understood, you must understand.
