Outrageous Interfaith Group Wants 'Islamic Terrorists' Text Removed From 9/11 Monument
A 9/11 memorial monument is causing controversy in the small town of Owego, New York.
The Children Of Abraham Of The Southern Tier has taken issue with the writing on the monument, which calls the perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks "Islamic terrorists."
The group is concerned that the wording unfairly paints all Muslims with the same brush and could encourage hatred toward Muslims living in the area.
They are requesting that the monument instead read "terrorists" or "Al Qaeda terrorists."
Town supervisor Donald Castellucci, however, is pushing back.
“I don’t live in a politically correct world,” Castellucci said. “I live in a historical fact world and cross terrorism, whether it’s American, homegrown, Christianity, Islamic – you call it what it is. And we don’t whitewash things, especially here. And we just think that we’ve done the accurate citing of what happened.”

Correction: A previous version of this article stated that the group that complained about the text was a Muslim organization. The group that raised the issue is The Children Of Abraham Of The Southern Tier, which is an interfaith organization.
