Muslims Demand Removal Facts From 9/11 Memorial Plaque

The Islamic Organization of the Southern Tier from Owego, New York is demanding to scrub the words “Islamic terrorists” from a 9/11 memorial for the victims who suffered during the tragedy.

The Islamic organization claims the term “Islamic terrorists” is an incendiary term that will inflate hate crimes and animosity against the Muslim religion.  The group asked if the term could instead be changed to just “terrorists” or “al-Qaeda terrorists”.

The inscription of the memorial reads:

“On September 11, 2001 nineteen Islamic terrorists unsuspectedly boarded four airliners departing east coast airports to hijack the planes and carry out a series of coordinated attacks against the United States.


This is a tribute to all the lives lost that day and to the heroic sacrifice of all who rushed to help. As Americans, we honor their memory by living our lives in freedom. We will never forget.”

New York City officials were deeply offended by this “politically correct” request and are not enthusiastic about it.  Actually, the officials don’t plan on amending the wording on the plaque — ever.

A city manager from New York, Donald Castelluci said:

“They want us to change the word from ‘Islamic Terrorist’ to either ‘terrorist’ or ‘Al Qaeda terrorist.  I sent them back an email saying I disagreed with their premise 100 percent.”

Fortunately, Castelluci said he has zero intention of adhering to their demands.  Apparently, he doesn’t want to live in a “politically-correct world”.

He said he lives in a “historical fact world … whether it’s American, homegrown, Christianity, Islamic, you call it what it is. And we don’t whitewash things, especially here.”

Castelluci also argued that the memorial “is not about religion,” but simply acts to memorialize “one event on one day that killed more than 3,000 people.”

And the former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani—in office at the time of the terrorist attack—also found the organization’s assertion absolutely absurd.

Giuliani compared removing the term “Islamic terrorists” to also removing the term “mafia” from schoolbooks.

Rudy Giuliani said:

“My reaction to the Italian mafia was real simple: I’m Italian-American, I’m not embarrassed about them, I don’t belong to them.


I want nothing to do with them and they represent the bad part of my ethnic background.  Every ethnic background has a bad part. There’s a bad part to the Islamic religion.


The good part of the Islamic religion shouldn’t feel at all hurt by ‘Islamic terrorism.’ They should feel angry about it, they should feel like — maybe even stronger than I do — they should be wiped out.


I felt stronger, maybe people who weren’t Italian-American, the mafia should be wiped out.”

This is a strong and yet painfully accurate comparison to the issue at hand.

The painful truth is that the facts surrounding the 9/11 terrorist attacks are quite clear: Islamic radicals committed Jihad on American soil.

You could argue that if a group of Christians committed a similar terrorist attack, the same objections might be treated in the same vein.

But unless those so-called “terrorists” committed those acts in the name of their God – and in alliance with their religion — even for God AND country — then you can’t hold those two ideals in the same vein.

What do you think about the demands from this Islamic group?

    Historical facts are still FACTS no matter how they want to spin it!. If they can’t live here with the facts as they are, then maybe they should return to their own homelands and begin by changing the “Facts” that “Islamic terrorists” are still beheading Christians and other non-Islamic people in the middle east!


      When we are told lies and believe lies, we are being manipulated into agendas. We must stop gpobbling up these lies and we must start asking questions and seeking answers when the ‘fact’ do not add up. It was not Muslims on planes with their passports falling down. Get real!

      • Steamer

        Really? They weren’t Muslims? We were able to recover bodies from the plane wreckage in Pa. and the armed bodies sure weren’t Christians. If you don’t believe that the terrorists were Muslim on 9/11/01 prove to us all WHO they were! Show us the proof !

  • Derbyhat

    We demand the restoration of life to the three thousand murdered on 9/11/01 and 9/11/12 by Radical Jihadists who are 100% Muslim!

  • Donald H Sullivan

    That’s like the Japanese asking us to change “The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor to “The Asian attack on Pearl Harbor.”

  • jim jones

    muslim=cancer, both need to be eradicated!



  • David Lofton

    They were what they were, are what they are and that is that! Please, own the title as it is radical Islam that created the need to separate the moderate from the radical, or did they and is there, becoming very hard to know these days.

  • Gary

    Who cares what they think? It was islamic terrorists that did the deed and now what they (islamic muslims) can do is fight to insure no more of their kind ever do something like this again! Clean up your own backyard before you start telling us how to clean up ours, we don’t have american terrorist flying planes into their buildings or murdering their citizens in cold blood.

    • Sawblade Stainless

      I agree get your Muslim asses back where you came from. Stop being wasted humans of wasted skin and fight your own damn war.Freeking pussies if you all would just pick up a weapon your damn war would have been over a long time ago. And to think you come to America and try to make us Muslim shit saying your god is and only . You sick Muslim pieces of shit. Go back and fight for what is yours. Because America is ours and we are not giving her up.!!!!!

  • Jane Scannell

    It’s the guilty party that always demands to make the corrections or changes. This crap all started when Obama gave into their changes and illegal demands when he kissed their heinies, and neglected the American standards and people. Send them all back and take Obumduck with them!

  • David Stewart

    I think they (muslims) should go back to their sand box in the Middle East! Don’t let them dictate history in America!

  • Eric Wildfire

    Phuq the Muslims every one of the 9-11 hijackers were MUSLIM EXTREMEST PERIOD they DID fly three aircraft into buildings in New York City and Washington D.C. (the Pentagon ) and 1 airliner in to the field in Pa. they can NOT defend what the terrorist did UNLESS THEY ADMIT that all Muslims are after all against America! Which we all know they are not ALL against the US ….That being said ONLY extremist would cry foul over this plaque because ONLY Radical Islamic Extremist would be offended by such … Phuq YOU all the plaque stays if you are offended GET the FOOK OUT go back to your caves or huts This is the USA you attack us we will put a boot in your ass (or FOOK you up in a big way !!)

  • TheManEl

    The only thing the Muslims are in a position to demand is their fellow Muslims start acting like Americans and stop their own people from becoming terrorists. Demand that fellow Muslims start speaking out against those that commit crimes against America and humanity. They have been awfully quiet.

  • Steamer

    I’d rather change the plaque at Custer’s Last Stand to read Native Americans! Let the FACTS stand!

  • Dwimby

    If they feel this way deport them back to their armpit lands to sleep with their camels again. This filth does not belong in the USA. They are the enemy.

  • James C. Robinson (III)

    Heaven forbid! But how dare Muslims demand removal facts from 9/11 Memorial Plaque! If I were there, Really, I’d object!

    • AllanGardnerMiles

      An election is coming up and if we Patriots don’t bring in a Fresh Applecart of an Administration whom can we blame but ourselves once again.

  • My country

    How about removing the Muslims from America . Their opinion doesn’t count ! This is America not a Muslim nation . These were our people if they don’t like it get out !

    • Sharon Bauerle

      I agree 1000%! They were responsible and they need to be labeled as the terrorists they are! And eradicated!

  • AllanGardnerMiles

    Almost every time you hear the word Muslim you also hear the Word DEMAND: If it was really that simple for Patriotic Americans to have their way WE WOULD be making more Demands like you assimilate into America and stopping your BUTT Shows.

    sorry ass rag headed bimbo’s

  • Gnowark

    Does “The Islamic Organization of the Southern Tier” claim to be islamic terrorists that can “own” offense? If so, that opens up another whole avenue of MY offense (and liability for them). You have backers, Donald Castelluci, that Thank You!

  • George

    pigslam founder/prophet mohammad-peckerhead was a psychopathic mudering pedophile… pigslam still teaches his way of hate & death. It is their CULT! There is NOTHING good about pigslam… unless you’re a psychopathic mudering pedophile yourself ! Even the moderate pigslam will buy and load the weapons… they just won’t pull the trigger. pigslam is pure evil… pure and simple ~ Like the blubonic plague… they must be elimated… now and forever ! God Bless America ! ! !

  • Metalkoter

    For FULL truthfulness, it should have been termed MUSLIM TERRORISTS, BECAUSE that IS WHAT THEY WERE!

  • roninrus1

    May Piss Be Upon The Moslems!

  • Jerry Dixon

    I agree with those muslims there is a mistake on the plaque. It should read 19 RADICAL ISLAMIST TERRORIST. Now that looks better and describes those Radical Islamic Terrorist scum for what they are. If you don’t approve go back to your own country. GOD BLESS AMERICA,
