The Tragedy of 9/11

Today, more than a decade later, the perception of Islam in America continues to be overshadowed by the events of 9/11, as apparent in right-wing rhetoric, the anti-Shariah campaign, and the various obstacles different mosques face.

Many forget that the collective fabric of American lives was jolted that day – which include Muslims who call the United States their home. In fact, Muslims were among those who lost their lives that day, whether as victims or as first responders.

After all these years, we owe it to ourselves to explore what Islam truly says about terrorism, historical examples of coexistence in Muslim lands, how the Muslim American community was affected by 9/11, and ways in which we can positively move forward as a united nation.

    ISLAM sponsors 95% of all the worlds current terror wars. ISLAM was founded on the sword and continues to cause bloodshed around the world. ISLAM needs a major reformation.

  2. Manoj Sharma says:

    If Islam teaches equality then why no temples or churches in Saudi Arabia? Do they not know Islam?

    Actual Bill, your talking nonsense. Al Qaeda and the Taliban were created, funded and supported by Ol' Uncle Sam to kill the Russians. Bin Laden was a CIA agent. ISIS is also a US funded terror group mainly comprised of military contractors from American companies such as Blackwater and Kellog. Islam does not need any reformation whatsoever.

    Az Younas Dear brother, I agree with you 100% Islam is perfect, there is no need for change!

    ISLAM beheads, blows up, kills, destroys in the name of your prophet. A prophet who was married to a JEW. A prophet who married a 9 year old girl. A prophet who plundered and robbed for a living.
