Sixteen years ago today the two towers in NY City came crashing down and the Pentagon was damaged in Washington DC while a plane load of folks crashed in Pennsylvania. 2,996 people lost their lives and more than 6,000 others were wounded in the terrorist events on 9/11/01.

Since that time memorials have naturally been placed at all three sites and a museum has opened in New York City. It was a traumatic and life changing time for our nation and the extreme loss of life and the sacrifice of the responders pretty much demanded permanent memorials and a place in our nations perpetual memory.

However, today I have run across a number of folks on the internet questioning whether the memorials are appropriate and whether they should be taken down along with the Confederate statues. After all they supposedly further the cause of discrimination against Muslims and increase and legitimize ‘Islamophobia.’

Here’s one reference from the major media where the question is asked but not actually supported:

‘Fox & Friends’ host wonders if 9/11 monuments will eventually go the way of Confederate statues

There are numerous other articles on blogs and activist sites where the question is not only asked but put forth as an eventual objective. I refuse to give traffic to any of them through a link.

Response: Should the 9/11 memorials be taken down?

No, never!

Nearly 3,000 people were killed and over 6,000 hurt. It was tantamount to a declaration of war against America and should not be forgotten. Like it or not, hundreds of thousands of our military were sent to the Middle East in response to this event and thousands are still there.

Care should be taken not to blame all Muslims for the terrorist events even though millions of adherents of Islam celebrated around the world when the two towers came down. The fact is, this event cannot be separated from radical Islam even if there are millions of peaceful Muslims around the world and in America.

We should not ignore the reality that the perpetrators of this terrorist event and many others referenced their religion, holy book, or prophet as a major philosophical motivation for their actions. The truth is the truth and should never be discounted or silenced in deference to some fake ‘phobia.’ Nevertheless, Muslims in America should be treated with respect and receive all the benefits that our rule of law and Constitution allows just like everyone else.               *Top
