Is the father worried that people will forget what happened?
    The only ones who should be inflamed by such an inscription are Muslim terrorists.

    That's not true. You know perfectly well that it is obnoxious. I am neither Muslim nor a terrorist, and *I* would be offended by it. Why does the city need to specifically point out the murderer? What purpose does that serve? Everyone knows what happened on 9/11.

    Is a memorial - especially a PUBLIC memorial - really the place for this ****?

    I am learning why.
    Good ,respectful taste is of paramount importance on a memorial. Describing the cause of death, even a murder is simply not in good taste... not on a memorial..
    Many do not seem to possess this quality...
    Few seem to have any notion of what "free speech" really is.

    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.
    I would say that since it's on the town's public property, it would be up to the town to decide.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    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.
    What wrong message would that be? I don't see how the honor and trashing are mutually exclusive.

    I think people just had more class back in my day. Bobby Kennedy was killed by a Palestinian terrorist, and his memorial doesn't say "murdered by Palestinian terrorist".

    You speak as thought it was even considered.
