Until Sept. 11, 2001 There Was a Mosque at “Ground Zero”

11 Sep

“It turns out there was a Muslim prayer room on the 17th floor of the south tower of the World Trade Center, where Americans and other traveling Muslims prayed every day.

On September 11th, 2001, when a handful of terrorists flew planes into the towers, some of the folks who used the room evacuated in time. Others probably didn’t.

In other words, there already was a “ground zero mosque”–used by Muslim Americans who were murdered just like everyone else.

So isn’t it time we stopped framing this discussion as “us versus them”?”
