New York: Muslims want to whitewash 9/11 Memorial, town says no

Muslims want you to forget.

OWEGO, N.Y. –  A controversy in Town of Owego over a new monument in Hickories Park for a major terrorist attack in September of 2001. Its wording has upset some. The monument references, ” nineteen Islamic terrorists” as being responsible for 9/11.

A spokesperson for the Islamic Organization of the Southern Tier says that having the words “Islamic terrorists” on the monument is a broad brush against the many Muslims who live in the Southern Tier. The group has asked that the monument say “terrorists” or, if they must, use “al-Qaeda terrorists.”

We asked a town lead if the idea of using the term “Islamic terrorists” was a bad one in the era of political correctness?  Town Supervisor Donald Castellucci says it is an accurate historical portrayal.

“I don’t live in a politically correct world,” he 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 think we done the accurate citing of what happened.”

Did the reporter intentionally misquote the Castellucci with “we think we done” to show up widely in print? The video below clearly shows he says “we think we’ve done.” More: Muslims complain about town’s 9/11 memorial

“This is not about religion,” he told me. “It’s about one event on one day that killed more than 3,000 people.”

“I sent them back an email saying I disagreed with their premise 100 percent.”

On Saturday, the citizens of Owego will commemorate the 15th anniversary of that terrible day by dedicating their memorial park – a park that honors a local resident who died in one of the twin towers.

His name was Derek Statkevicus and he worked on the 89th floor of 2 World Trade Center. And his life was taken by an Islamic terrorist.

That’s a fact.


The first of many attempts, many of which are or will be successful, to whitewash 9/11 and rewrite history each year.

  1. there should be one of these monuments in every town in America

  2. Muslim terrorists should be offended.

  3. If it were not for IZZLAAM and the HATE-SPEECH written in the KORAN by none other than the HATE SPEECH EXPERT HIMSELF, MO-DAMN-HEAD, there never would have been a 9/11/2001–nor, for that matter, any other ISLAMIC TERRORIST activity. IZZLAM IS EVIL–ROTTEN TO THE CORE, and cannot be made socially acceptable. The problem is not about “DERANGED TERRORISTS”, per se,–it’s about deranged brain-washed ISLAMIC terrorists!!! ISLAM MEANS TERROR–IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD!!!!!

  4. To ALL Muslims–Keep your hands OFF OF our memorials!!!

  5. I am glad this town stood up for the facts and did not bow down to political correctness. Kudos to all people of that town. I hope more and more people will stop bending to political correctness.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
