You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

Muslim merchant still draws outrage after viral photo | Houston & Texas News | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle
It started when the Muslim merchant posted a sign at his shop during Ramadan explaining the store would be closed Sept. 11 to remember the death of Imam Ali, a sacred Muslim figure. Master failed, however, to explain that Ali, who is remembered on a different date each year during Ramadan, died in 661 A.D. and was in no way related to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
Someone snapped a picture of the sign and started sending it around online, claiming Imam Ali was one of the Sept. 11 hijackers.
Before long the photo went viral, showing up on countless conservative Internet forums and prompting statements like this one that appeared at 2Aforum.com: "Picket, protest, and through lawful means, strangle their business."
Soon the phone calls started, befuddling and overwhelming store manager Hasan Kolsawala, who tried to explain that no offense was intended.

A simple google search would have shown he was not one of the bombers but what do you expect? Almost anything Muslims do especially in US will be misinterpreted and made to look like they are praising terrorists or some ****. Poor guy. He was only remembering the death of someone important within his sect.
