Attack on New York was not an Islamic event
The attack on 9/11 on NYC and America was performed by Arab terrorists, al Qaeda, who happens to be radicalized Islamic. To this day, I don’t believe that the Muslim community in the USA has done anything like it should have to reject the attack and to demonstrate the difference between peace loving Muslims and the radicals. I just don’t sense it.
Since 9/11, I have made conscientious effort to learn as much as I can about Islam. I have concluded that the religion as practiced throughout the world is exceedingly intolerant and backward with regard to women.
As President Obama says and as the US Constitution provides, religious freedom is an instance of individual freedom and liberty. In America, Muslims and Islam have a right to worship. However, as with any other belief, so long as doing so does not undermine the higher order principles of freedom for all.
Government trumps religion.
“News Alert: President backs Islamic complex near Ground Zero in New York
08:30 PM EDT Friday, August 13, 2010
President Obama said on Friday that he supports the construction of a mosque near Ground Zero in New York, saying that opposing the project is at odds with American values. "Let me be clear: as a citizen, and as President, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country," he said at a White House ceremony marking the traditional breaking of the daily Ramadan fast, according to prepared remarks. "That includes the right to build a place of
worship and a community center on private property in lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances." Some leading Republicans have urged that the mosque project be halted.”
