Quotable Quotation

Upon completion of a memorial for 9/11 in Owego, New York, a local Muslim group wanted it scrubbed, stating that they thought the term “Islamic Terrorists” was not politically correct.  The response from the originators of the memorial:  “We don’t whitewash things around here and the words Islamic Terrorists are factually correct and the truth.”

Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani’s reaction:  “That would be like me saying:  I want the words Italian mafia taken out of the history books, because I am Italian and it offends me.  Italian mafia does not offend me.  I do not belong to them.  I am not embarrassed by them.  I want nothing to do with them.  They represent the bad part of my ethnic background.  There is a bad part to every ethnic background including the Islamic religion.”
