Apologize to Muslims and Americans
By Ramah Kudaimi
September 14, 2005

Response to Chicago Tribune's "9/11 Memorial Under Fire"

Rep. Tom Tancredo has once again proven that fanatic, close-minded people can be of any religious background (“9/11 memorial under fire,” Sept. 14). His assertion that the Flight 93 memorial “honors the terrorists” because it is shaped like a crescent is comical. According to this logic, a person who hangs the cross pays tribute to the crusaders, the Ku Klux Klan, the people who bomb abortion clinics and all other Christian terrorists.

Tancredo will continue to make these insulting and offensive remarks until his party demands that he apologizes first to Muslims worldwide for slandering their faith, and second to all Americans for abusing his power as an elected official in an attempt to gain support for his extremist attitudes.
