(Gateway Pundit) – Pieve di Cento is a town of 7,000 inhabitants near Bologna, Italy.
Recently the town leaders decided to cover Christian symbols in the local cemetery so as not to offend Muslim migrants. The debate in the town is still ongoing and the mayor now understands he may have made a blunder.

Flashback: Disgusting: College Blocks 9/11 Memorial Out Of Fear Of Offending Muslims
Why are we constantly told, in the wake of yet another ideologically-driven Muslim terrorist attack, that it’s “not all Muslims”, and yet worried about offending all Muslims by honoring those killed by the biggest Islamic terrorist attack of all time?
Tell me that.
If a Muslim absolutely abhors terrorism, they should want nothing more than to honor the lives of those killed in the 9/11 terror attacks, and mourn along with people of all faiths as well as join in as we denounce the senseless loss of life that happened that day, and happens every day a psychotic extremist targets, attacks, and destroys innocent life for the sake of making a point.
But it’s 2018, and we’re now far more interested in literally never offending any Muslim ever than we are at simply holding to the basic standard of decency and expect them to understand when we mourn those killed by Islamic terrorism.
The Independent Sentinel reports on Ripon College’s rejection of the Young America Foundation’s 9/11: Never Forget project that draws attention to the very real terrorist attacks that have been committed in the name of Islam:
Administrator’s[sic] have banned a 9/11 memorial at the Wisconsin college because Muslims might feel bad and get “singled out and/or harassed”. Young America’s Foundation which puts up the memorial each year said the administration cited bias reports.
They are not allowed to put up a 9/11 memorial or any memorial for a victim of radical Islamic terrorism….
Because of how people feel, a college can censor history.
Administrators further—and falsely—claim that one of their objections is because radical Islamist terrorism “represents a small percentage of the terrorist attacks that happened to this country, and they don’t represent the full gamut, and they show a very small picture of a specific religion or nationality instead of the larger viewpoint.”
The truth is that from 1992 to 2017, Islamists were responsible for 92% of deaths caused by terrorism in the United States. They are “far and away, the deadliest group of terrorists by ideology,” YAF reports
Just as remembrances of horrific events carried out in the name of Nazism or Communism include honoring other victims of those ideological treacheries, so does the remembrance of the attacks carried out by radical Islamists on September 11, 2001.
This is history, not bias. You can’t deny events that have already happened…at least not without turning into a real-life example of the literally Orwellian practice of rewriting history.
We are headed down a dangerous path if we allow feelings to prevent college students from knowing the truth about the history of violent extremist terrorism in our nation.
