Muslim-Americans launch PR initiatives, promote Sept. 11 as day of national service

In an effort to push back against negative views of Islam and Muslims, grassroots Muslim groups are launching a series of initiatives to convey to non-Muslim-Americans that they are also Americans.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) released a series of advertisements today that will run on national television, clearly intended to counter some of the furor over the proposed mosque near Ground Zero.

In one spot, a New York firefighter who was a first responder after the Sept. 11 attacks talks about losing a loved one before announcing that he is a Muslim.

CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper said the point of the ad is to "challenge the notion that Muslims were not also targeted on 9/11."

Anti-Islamic sentiments are spreading well beyond the battle over the proposed Park51 community center near Ground Zero. At least two mosques far from New York have received hate-filled messages opposing the proposed mosque in Lower Manhattan, and a fire at a mosque construction site in Tennessee is now being investigated as arson.

David, ATS has been covered in things all day that have had me giggling.

But this video...Nope.

I'm all tearful now. Very, very moving.

Who is the guy making the video?
I read body language expertly,
the guy is conning, lying,
does not believe what he is saying,

Otherwise it is a good video.

EVERYONE lost some that day.

It doesnt matter where you where, or how you heard it. It has touched the lives of many. Though some can speak more than others, our lives were changed. Thanks for the video.

Peace, NRE.

This video touches on a subject that concerns us ALL.

Whether we know someone that passed that day or not, our lives are not greatly concerning no matter WHO'S agenda it was. WE are all collateral damage, and us being parents, aunts, uncles, or children, our belief in what we are matters, no one can recount what our lives are worth... just US.

Peace, NRE.
