Remembering a fallen brother

Nine years have passed since the September 11 terrorist attacks, but the pain felt by the families of the victims is still intense. CNN's Steve Kastenbaum sat down with a woman who lost a brother who was also her best friend.

Muslim 9/11 families are fearful

Nearly 60 victims of the September 11 attacks were Muslims. CNN's Steve Kastenbaum spoke with the mother of a Muslim New York City police cadet who died in the attacks about growing anti-Muslim sentiment.

    Islam has a core doctrine of violent supremacism that's evident in its history, its scriptures, its classic schools of thought, many of its modern opinion leaders and the aspirations and actions of many of it's followers. The only possible solution will come when Islam is opened to serious, specific scrutiny and criticism. Until then, all of constant "religion of peace" propaganda is just wishful thinking.

      You can pull out passages of the old testament and piece them together to make the same argument.

    1st of all terrorist have been committed by people of all races & all religions through out history. Remember the inquisition? And the kkk call themselves christians. And as far as moving on. Mourn yes, that's what we do. But how can any one tell anyone when & how to let go. My father die 6 yrs ago on 9/11. And I hope to never let go. That how he lives in my heart. It does not consume my life, but I think of him often. He was & always will be my hero.

    I am a baptist minister and what I can't understand this being a country of the free, at least this is what this country was founded on, then why don't we live it. If we are a country of the free, then why is it only some people are free to do what they want and not everyone? Can someone answer that question for me, if everyone is not free we should stop telling other country's that we are? Then maybe everyone would not want to come here so badly, if they know we are not a free country. Francis Scott Key is no doubt turning over in his grave, leave the Muslims alone and allow them to live free.
