Muslims: 9/11 Museum Film Portrays Them Negatively

NEW YORK (AP/Hamodia) -

Muslim advocates said that a film that will be shown in the Sept. 11 memorial museum portrays all their coreligionists as terrorists and they want the museum to edit it before the opening next week.

The New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which has been linked to Middle East terror groups in a 2001 federal court filing, is upset at “anti-Islamic terminology.”

“Labels to describe organizations such as al-Qaeda are heavily disputed among academics, and in a public environment, without proper explanation and historical context, these terms could easily mislead and assign collective responsibility to Muslims and Islam,” they wrote.

The museum said they stand by the scholarship underlying “The Rise of Al Qaeda.”
