Town rejects 9/11 memorial because of "Murdered by Moslem extremists" phrase


James Gadiel
February 3, 1978
A gentleman and a gentle man
Lifelong resident of Kent
Murdered by Moslem extremists
September 11, 2001

As Jawa Report notes:  
The above is what was suppose to be inscribed on James Gadiel's memorial in the town of Kent. But resident Catherine Posselt appealed to the city to reject the wording because the wording is "racially insensitive". The town granted Posselt's appeal and rejected the memorial.

This is absolutely insane. We can't even name the barbaric throwbacks who killed more than 3,000 people on September 11th because we might hurt their feelings. First off, how is the memorial "racially insensitive"? "Moslem extremists" are not a race, they're a bunch of islamic supremacists who kill innocent people in order to establish shariah law.
The JIDF concurs.  

NBC:
Peter Gadiel lost his son James when planes struck the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. He has asked for a memorial planned in the town to be inscribed with the phrase that has divided the town and gotten national attention, the Waterbury Republican-American reports.

Kent resident Catherine Posselt Bachrach led a citizens' appeal to reject the wording, the Republican-American reports, and town officials agreed with her.

First Selectman Ruth Epstein told the the Torrington Register Citizen that the inscription would be racially insensitive and not appropriate for a monument paid for with taxpayer dollars.

“I feel it was such a catastrophic episode for the United States, and we lost one of our own, that it is a good idea to memorialize James. But we could not condone that wording for anything on public land,” she told the Register Citizen.
