Muslim group wants “Islamic Terrorists” scrubbed from 9/11 Memorial in Owego, New York [video]

A Muslim “activist group” in New York is demanding that the words, “Islamic terrorists,” be scrubbed from a 9-11 memorial because the language is “inflammatory.”

The Islamic Organization of Southern Tier, told KTRK-TV News that the monument in Owego, New York, “unfairly paints all Muslims with the same brush.” It suggests that the word “Islamic” be erased and replaced with “terrorists” or “Al Qaeda terrorists.”

But, Owego town supervisor Donald Castellucci, said the monument is accurate as it is and is not going to be changed. He told KTRK-TV:

“I don’t live in a politically-correct world. I live in a historical fact world and terrorism — whether it’s American homegrown, Christianity, Islamic — you call it what it is.”
