    Ahh, the revisionist historical education defense. Classic way of subtitling saying that someone thinks info on the internet is better than info learned in the classroom. It's too funny.

Instead of advocating that they should use their holiday to condemn Islamic terrorism, they are out in full force saying that they're not celebrating 9/11. It's all in the actions.
    they are damned if they and damned if they don't. don't you think fox news, etc......will publicize this for all it's worth? all the lame right wing nut job sites will be all over this, and people will believe it, of course. maybe the damage control will help. i don't think it's our business how they use their holiday, just as it's not my business how the jews, or any other group, uses their holidays. unless of course they are causing harm.

    Sadly because we were attacked on 9/11 or sadly because we make a big deal of the holiday because of the attack? It is very unrealistic for Americans in general to not have a reaction regardless if it were coincidence. Let the Muslims deal with the discomfort just as Americans deal with it. It will pass.

    A poster made the comment,

    I wish Muslim organizations would take a step and condemn terrorism, especially before this holiday comes.

    Most Islamic organizations remain *quiet* over such subjects and will only "condemn" terrorism when it benefits the organization or to make a point about "Israeli occupation." Muslim organizations are not equipped to condemn acts of terrorism due to their internecine links to various organizations overseas linked to Hamas, Fatah; to condemn terrorism, would be to condemn Hamas, Yassir Arafat (an AIDS-afflicted, pedophile), Black September (Arafat's special commando group that carried out the 1972 Munich Massacre), Fatah, the Palestinian Authority and virtually all Islamic theo-totalitarian states where terrorism is not only monetarily supported but taught in K-12 as "a gift from A'llah to the infidels."

    To condemn terrorism would require Muslim organizations in the U.S. and abroad to accept the State of Israel as a partner in the Middle East, which can never be imagined. As one Muslim devotee told me at Starbucks this year, Israel is not a country, it is simply a puppet-state of the U.S. which will eventually be driven into the sea.

    I would say sadly in that people can't seem to understand coincidence and would let their anger and hatred take control over their senses. It's unfortunate that sometimes we choose to act more like monkey than man.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Why do Muslim organisation have to accept Israel as a partner to condemn terrorism?

    They don't -- except within the arena of American politics.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
