Yet another fairytale where muslims are metamorphosed into victims:
Islamic Center opens its doors for conversation about Sept. 11
Perrysburg Twp. mosque holds 'Day of Unity'

Samina Hasan's son fought for the United States as a Marine and was wounded in Iraq.
Yet when he returned to America, his flight was held at the gate because he was on the plane, she said yesterday. He even showed the crew his Purple Heart, yet he was still treated as a threat.
"We were considered enemies," she said, "and suspicious in the land we call our own."
It was a common refrain yesterday at the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo: that the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2011, had left Muslim-Americans feeling like enemies in their own country, considered with suspicion on airplanes, at border crossings, and during everyday life.
"You have no idea the stress this caused us," Ms. Hashmi said. "To feel like you are the enemy. This is the problem we have been living with for 10 years."
The testimonials were not so much from anger as from despair, that the Muslim-American community was victimized twice: as Americans by foreign terrorists, and as Muslims by their neighbors.

Next time a muslim feels 'victimized', he / she might consider how allah's victims might feel as they are ambushed and slain, as happened on "9/11" ...
So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. (Sura 9:5)
