Like many of you, watching Sunday’s 9/11 memorial coverage got me thinking about where I was on that horrific Tuesday in 2001. A student at McGill University at the time, I was on my way to the gym when a random stranger told me a plane had crashed into the World Trade Center. Little did I know my world would change forever.
Over the past decade, mosques have been targeted, people have been persecuted and Islam has been under a microscope. When terrorists hijacked those planes, they also hijacked a religion.
As my colleague, Ginella Massa, a Panamanian Canadian whose mother converted to Islam when she was 3 years old, says: “After Sept. 11, I constantly felt the need to defend my religion. I always felt the need to prove that I was like everybody else, except that I wear a scarf over my head.”
More on muslims who think they are like everybody else, in spite of what "Allah" and its false prophet have to say on the subject, at "Toronto Star"
Unfortunately, "9/11" is the least of their worries. According to islam, there are muslims and non-muslims - muslims are those who deny the deity of Jesus Christ, and deny that He was crucified for their sins, thereby condemning themselves (Suras 4:171 and 157).
