Muslim Group Objects to the Phrase ‘Islamic Terrorists’ on NY Town’s 9/11 Monument

Thanks to reporting by Fox News, a local dispute over a New York 9/11 monument is getting some national attention.

Last week, WICZ reported on how the Islamic Organization of the Southern Tier was objecting to the inclusion of the phrase “Islamic terrorists” in the monument recalling the tragic events of that day. They asked that “Islamic” be taken out or at least replaced with “al-Qaeda terrorists.”

Town Supervisor Donald Castellucci said they shouldn’t remove it to “whitewash” history and be politically correct.

Well, Fox picked up on this and ran it on TV and online. Here’s how Fox’s own Todd Starnes reacted:

I want to commend Mr. Castelluci and the good people of Owego for refusing to bow at the altar of political correctness.

The facts surrounding 9/11 are very clear. Islamic radicals committed jihad on American soil. They were not shouting, “Jesus Saves” when they flew those jetliners in the buildings.

Watch WICZ’s report above.
