"Interfaith group" is against presenting facts at 9-11 Memorial Museum

While the museum already has some questionable MO, politically correct cretins are still causing more than enough problems with getting facts out to the public. Case in point: a documentary short being screened there:
An interfaith advisory group of clergy members in New York is raising concerns over a documentary that will be shown at the National September 11 Memorial Museum when it opens next month, arguing the film is offensive to Muslims.

The film, “The Rise of Al Qaeda” refers to the 9/11 terrorists as Islamists and uses the term jihad, which has panel members worried the film will leave museum visitors with a prejudiced view of Islam, The New York Times reported.
They're always opposed to anybody with common sense looking down in justified offense at their repulsive religion.
“The screening of this film in its present state would greatly offend our local Muslim believers as well as any foreign Muslim visitor to the museum,” Sheik Mostafa Elazabawy, the imam of Masjid Manhattan and member of the interfaith group, wrote in a letter to the museum’s director.

“Unsophisticated visitors who do not understand the difference between Al Qaeda and Muslims may come away with a prejudiced view of Islam, leading to antagonism and even confrontation toward Muslim believers near the site.”
Look who's talking, a man with a complete lack of sophistication himself. And what difference is there between Islam and the Koran?
According to The New York Times, the seven-minute film explains the historical roots of the attacks and the ideology of the terrorists. The film, which has been showed to several groups, features images of terrorist training camps other attacks.
Exactly. How can the museum explain the hows and whys of jihadism if they don't say anything about the motivating factors? I'm sure there's more than a modicum of 9-11 Families who'd agree that the public must know what led to the tragedy. And a writer for North Jersey feels this way too. That "interfaith" panel should be told to take a hike.

Update: more from Jonathan Tobin at Commentary.
