    What do you think? The town wants to put a memorial plaque next to its town hall but the father wants the phrase 'Murdered by Muslim Terrorists' put on the plaque.

    The town thinks it's just too controversial to put those words.
    If it's public property then it's the town's decision. Personally I have no problem with that. It's true so where's the controversy??

    It may be true, but it's still insulting. It's like calling a ho, a ho. You know?

    Oh, I don't know..
    Even here in Libtardistan we have roadside signs that say, " Im memory of John XXXXX, please don't drink & drive".......
    That points out who was responsible, maybe in a slightly roundabout way, but murderers just the same....
    Same rule should apply....

    I wonder how may people who believe the words have no place on city property due to perceived controversy feel the same way about anti-american "artwork"(I use that term "artwork" loosely) being displayed on city property?






    The town thinks it's just too controversial to put those words.
    I see nothing controversial with the words. However it would be like putting my child was killed by a child rapist or my son was killed by a drunk driver or my dad died of a heart attack on a grave stone. I know when I die I do not want my loved ones looking on my tombstone seeing how I died.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    That's considerably less offensive than if the sign had read "Murdered by an alcoholic" or something like that. Besides, most of those road signs were put up by the family themselves, not the government.

    I don't think it should as it will send the wrong message. It should be to honor the memory of the departed, not trash the criminals who did it.

    Just seems to be more of a revenge move than one of honoring the fallen.

    I think it would dishonor the memory and the person who built such a thing.

    I don't see how can this be offensive to Muslims that are not terrorists.

    Yeah sure, he could have said murdered by terrorists, but that would be a generalization.

    I see nothing wrong with it. In fact it sounds like a good idea. A memorial is not just about remembering the fallen. It's also about remembering how they fell. After all the they don't have the World War II Memorial named "World War II Memorial" for nothing.

    Personally I think the saying really dishonors the dead by politicizing it with anger.
    While the man is free to put whatever he wants on a private cemetary headstone....it doesn't belong in the public square.

    Again...why would this man want to dishonor his son with this?

    Not much precedent, actually, based on the following inscriptions:

    http://www.wwiimemorial.com/archives...scriptions.htm

    PEARL HARBOR
    DECEMBER 7, 1941, A DATE WHICH WILL LIVE IN INFAMY…NO
    MATTER HOW LONG IT MAY TAKE US TO OVERCOME THIS
    PREMEDITATED INVASION, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, IN THEIR
    RIGHTEOUS MIGHT, WILL WIN THROUGH TO ABSOLUTE VICTORY. President Franklin D. Roosevelt
    THEY HAVE GIVEN THEIR SONS TO THE MILITARY SERVICES. THEY
    HAVE STOKED THE FURNACES AND HURRIED THE FACTORY WHEELS.
    THEY HAVE MADE THE PLANES AND WELDED THE TANKS,
    RIVETED THE SHIPS AND ROLLED THE SHELLS. President Franklin D. Roosevelt
    THEY FOUGHT TOGETHER AS BROTHERS-IN-ARMS.
    THEY DIED TOGETHER AND NOW THEY SLEEP SIDE BY SIDE.
    TO THEM WE HAVE A SOLEMN OBLIGATION.

    Admiral Chester W. Nimitz
    BATTLE OF MIDWAY JUNE 4-7, 1942
    THEY HAD NO RIGHT TO WIN. YET THEY DID, AND IN DOING SO THEY CHANGED
    THE COURSE OF A WAR…EVEN AGAINST THE GREATEST OF ODDS, THERE IS
    SOMETHING IN THE HUMAN SPIRIT – A MAGIC BLEND OF SKILL, FAITH AND
    VALOR – THAT CAN LIFT MEN FROM CERTAIN DEFEAT TO INCREDIBLE VICTORY.

    Walter Lord, Author
    THE WAR’S END
    TODAY THE GUNS ARE SILENT. A GREAT TRAGEDY HAS ENDED. A GREAT
    VICTORY HAS BEEN WON. THE SKIES NO LONGER RAIN DEATH – THE SEAS
    BEAR ONLY COMMERCE – MEN EVERYWHERE WALK UPRIGHT IN THE
    SUNLIGHT. THE ENTIRE WORLD IS QUIETLY AT PEACE.

    General Douglas MacArthur
